Question about Computers & Internet
If the laptop appears dead in the water, try a power drain:
1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board. 3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on. If this doesn't resolve the problem, start troubleshooting the power cable and it's brick first before assuming it's an internal issue in the laptop unless of course, it doesn't start up using the battery either. Maybe remove the battery and just try the power cable. I never rule out one piece of hardware causing a conflict with others if it has failed...
