Try this (works sometimes):
Remove the power cord and the battery. Press the power button for a few seconds. Replug the power cord and power up the laptop. If it works, turn it off, and insert the battery again.

Desk top computer won't turn back on


Try unplugging the power cord for 2 mins from the dead computer. Take out the plug from the computer. Your motherboard needs a reboot. let me know if that works.

Computer seems totally dead


If the power cord is firmly plugged in - both ends, remove the battery. Does it turn on now? If so, replace battery.

What does No Power/No POST Troubleshooting mean


Hi.
It refers to two symptoms. No power just means the machine is dead and nothing happens when you press the power button on the computer. POST stands for Power On Self Test. This is what happens just after you press the power button - the computer checks devices connected to it then starts to load Windows or whatever operating system you have. If the computer is dead, then it is often caused by a faulty power supply (metal box where the power cord goes in. If it won't POST then an error may be displayed to tell you where it stopped during POST, or error beeps may sound to tell the technician which part of POST has failed. Sometimes, you may hear the fans and hard disk, but the monitor stays dead. This is usually caused by the RAM coming loose in it's socket or the video card coming loose/ failing.

Check all connections mate . Any one of the below could be faulty :-

Power outlet at the wall - try plugging something else into the socket or use a different socket

Are you using any multi-plug adapters? Plug the laptop straight into the mains

Your DC jack may be loose (Where the charger plugs in). This is a common problem and most laptops will get this during their life. Take if to a repair shop to get it fixed. A quick way of checking this is to plug the charger in and wiggle the cord - if the socket where the charger plugs in moves , its a loose jack and it will need to be resoldered.

Dead Battery - Try another battery , or let the battery charge - Try running directly off the mains

Hard drive wont eject? - There not supposed to , the only way you usually disconnect the hard drive is by unscrewing it from the laptop.

How far can you get when you say "Everything else is dead"? can you get to the BIOS? , does anything appear on the screen aty all? If you get a picture but cant boot then its likely that the virus corrupted your windows installation which means you will have to use the repair discs that came with the laptop or another windows install disc to reinstall windows - This will however , lose any documents , music , programs etc that you put on - If you want to keep things off the drive , plug it into another laptop , get all your data back then reinstall into your own laptop. If you rtry putting the drive in another laptop and things dont work and you cant even get your data or the drive doesnt appear , you will need a new hard drive and then have to reinstall windows on the new drive

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
