Plug it into the wall , most newer laptops will have a power boost while plugged into AC.
check your power cable receptical on the back of the laptop, these are notorious for getting loose.
check the cable on the ac adaptor, these are bad for getting breaks that you cant see in them (run your hand down the cable physically and fell for any breaks while unplugged, then do it again plugged in and watch for lights to flicker on the computer.
look for the power light on the laptop to come on when you plug the adaptor in. if you get a light on the adaptor and on the computer, then the adaptor isnt the issue.
the next step is checking the power button and power supply.. post what your results are here and we'll move to the next step if not resolved.
Regards!

My laptop doesnt turn on at all..help


Turn on your laptop without power adapter but with laptop battery. Or remove your battery then plug your power adapter then try turning on. If it's not turning on your motherboard damaged.

My Toshiba Laptop will not turn on the second light from the left is flashing orange


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Laptop speakers problem


There are 2 volume control buttons on the laptop. 1 turns it up 1 turns it down. Try turning the volume up. It may be up high enough for you to hear with headphones but now loud enough to be heard through the speakers.

I have a Acer aspire 6920G laptop. Now i want to turn on the side blue lights during battery mode. Because when i use the laptop in battery mode this turned off.. Any body has any idea??


at battery mode....you cannot turn on the blue lights because the battery is low at that time....due to that it will not turn on the blue at that time....if you want to turn on blue lights during battery mode when you use your laptop in battery mode then the only way is to charge your laptop when your laptop is in battery mode.....there is no other way
