Cannot turn-on my laptop

I shut down my laptop just fine last time. But when I tried to turn it on it not giving any response. I thought maybe the battery was drained but when I pluged in the outlet the yellow light indicating that it is plugged in does not come on either. I recently had a virus attack on my computer as well. Is there in hope or should I break out my vallet for a new PC. Help?

    Thanks, I will try this but one question though how do I remove battery from my notebook it is not as obvious as the AC adapter.

  • mahriah Jan 22, 2009

    thanks all for responding. Actually a little after the post I fixed the problem. It was a simple problem. It was my battery that had gotten lose and wasn't connected correctly. Once I ejected it, inserted it back in, and charged it all night with my laptop turned off, it has been working just fine. Something that may help someone else and wont hurt to double check if cant turn your laptop on.

Hello Mahriah.
Try the following steps:
1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook. 2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute. 3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery  and try starting the computer.
The issue might be with the excessive power in the capacitors on the Mother Board. We are performing the Power Drain procedure which will drain all the excessive power from the capacitors and it may make the laptop to work properly.

or try holding power button for a few seconds (10) then turn it back on. as a last resort you could try take the battery out, disconnect it from the power adapter, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then place the battery back in and the power adapter and try powering it on?

I have a Sony Vaio FX802 with 384 MB ram, split 1 x 256MB and 1 x 128MB across 2 banks. Last week I noticed that I was running on 256MB only so I re-seated the 128MB module and that seemed ok for a time,...


when adding new memory always take all memory out, reinsert the new 256mb stick into the first memory socket dimm1 normally, boot the laptop up, if the laptop boots then fine the memory module is ok, shut down and insert the original 256mb into the second slot, dimm2 then boot the laptop it should now boot normally, if not there maybe problems with the memory slot itself, give it blow to get rid of any dust and try again, if this dosent work post back.

ok you have laptop. Look for a key called "Fn" it should be around the ctrl or alt key on your keyboard. Try pressing that. After trying to turn it on and it wont. press the Fn key. The last time you were able to use the laptop how did you shut it down? Did you tell it by going threw the menu when logged on. Or just pressed the button? Or did you tell it to shut down then you closed the screen/lid before it actually shut down? Laptops will go into stand by after you tell it to shut down if you dont wait til it shuts down, before shutting the lid. ALso depending on the laptop company you have Trying to figure out which one it is. They have program installed with your system. And depending on how it's set up, will greatly effect how or even IF your laptop will shut down right.

I cannot shut down or restart my PC using the start menu prompts. The only way to shut her down is a hard shut down (manually turn her off).


There is a program that is failing to shut down in general, which is delaying the computers ability to shut down.
The next time you shut down, make sure you have no programs open. Then, while attempting to shut down, wait until Windows pops up window asking you to close a non-responsive program. When it does, take note of the program that it mentions, then close it and see if Windows shuts down. Note: sometimes this takes a really long time.
Try re-installing the non-responsive program and see if your computer can shut down normally again.

When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

Computer shuts itself off


Hey Cidney, Sounds like the laptop is overheating, the machine will restart or turn itself off once the temperature goes over 60-65c. Might be a faulty fan or need the thermal paste replaced on the cpu. best bet is to put it into a shop for a free quote if theres anyone near you. afraid i dont think you will be able to fix it yourself, and can sometimes it can be quite costly.. Sorry cant help anymore All the best John
