If the power LED is on then - The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
Windows won't start up? Well, try this Download Tenorshare Data Recovery from its offical site and install it. Burn it into CD/DVD, or USB flash, put into the computer you need to repair, Bios setting.It can make sure your important data will not lose.Best of luck Related: windows won't start
won't boot at all? it's probably the BIOS settings go to the BIOS settings by pressing F8 or DEL go to advanced settings look for "boot device priority" or something like that set the first priority device as your harddisk save & exit,restart,happy computing
the "boot device priority" maybe not placed on advanced setting,each BIOS has different interfaces,just look for something like that,it's easy
From the information you provided it sounds like a bad DC jack, first check your power adapter with a volt meter if you have one accessible. If your power adapter is outputting the proper voltage, then within a 95% certainty its your dc jack. You can look at this website here for more info on dc jack repair, if you dont have the proper tools to fix it.
