Hi. If the PC wont switch on, try this simple trick - remove the power cord from the pc. Press and hold the power button on the pc unit for 20 seconds (this will totally discharge the power supply). Try reconnecting the power lead and switching on. If this works - happy days, if not then it could be either a bad Power supply or even a dead Motherboard.

My advent 8315 laptop will not turn on after i left it on all night. I charged it up immediately after but it will not turn on. when i press the power up button, the blue light flickers on and then turns...


Could be in short circuit protection mode, or for some reason your laptop is not receiving the correct power it needs. It is possible that it overheated and died because it was left on for a long period of time. This is confirmed if dust is present within the laptop. If under warranty return it, if not take it to a computer technician.

Laptop Not Power on Battery Mode


I understand that while the laptop is connected to the power supply it's ok, and while it boots up, even with the cord disconnected, it stays on but only briefly, but after a while, it shuts itself down?
If this is so, it would appear that your battery is dead and needs replacing. Your laptop will still work, as long as it's connected to its power supply. It should even work with the battery removed, provided it's plugged into the adapter.

Problem with my laptop


Most likely your battery is dead. Try to remove it and try to turn it on with only power supply.

Lcd connection


Hi,

It would be uncommon for a laptop not to have a function key, Fn. This would be normally located somewhere bottom left of the keyboard often after the CTRL key and/or before the Windows key. Further, it is often required to press the Fn key + F? key where the F? would be one of the F keys with the small monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If you have a battery to test it with and there is still no power then a common defect is the power jack itself. You would need to have the technical proficiency to troubleshoot that circuit. If you do not have a battery to test that possibility you might ask a repair shop to just put one in before you buy one as the possibility of a bad motherboard exists. Steve Medley
