So I came home from work one day, and my Averatec 3200 laptop won't power on. When I hit the power button, nothing happens. The small battery shaped light flashes like the battery is charging, but nothing powers on at all.

Re: It won't turn on!
Flashing green battery means it is in suspend mode. Pushing the power button should bring it out of suspension, however, one of the reasons I deactivate both suspend and hibernate mode is because the seldom work right.
I would disconnect your A/C power cord and remove your battery from the laptop. After about 30 seconds plug them back in and your commuter should start again.

If laptops do not come with an installation disc, sometimes there is a setting in the BIOS which will allow reseting to factory settings. When the computer is first turned on, it will usually provide a specific key to access the BIOS or setup screen.
I've had this happen to me a few times. If the pin inside the laptop is bent, then there is no question that you'll need a warranty or shop repair on the laptop to fix or replace the power port.
If the power input coming from the power supply is bent, then you can try fixing it by pushing the plug back into place with a pair of pliers. If this doesn't work, then you'll need a replacement power supply or repair.
may have damaged the motherboard on impact without breaking anything off. best bet would be to take the laptop apart and visually check for that kind of damage. should be taken to a repair shop, not done at home
Locate your wireless card compartment on your computer. It is probably on the back of it. Your computer manual should tell you where it is. Open the compartment and locate your wlan card. Remove it from your laptop for about 30 seconds, and then reinsert it and make sure that the proper connections to it are firm and secure. Close up the compartment. Turn on your laptop. Your laptop should search and recognize it. If it doesn't, then your wireless card probably quit working on you. If your computer is still under warranty, and if it doesn't recognize it after you have tried this, then you can contact your computer manufacturer and explain to them what happened. They should replace your wireless card at no charge. If you bought the wireless card from some other store, then take it to them and explain to them, and ask for a replacement wireless card.
On each laptop there is a power saving button to save power when you close the lid.You might have accidentally hit that switch. Just try finding out where that switch is and manually try to make it on.
It could be your Power Supply or your CMOS Battery is dead. For Power Supply, you can test by try to connect your Power Cord without battery to see for any PowerPush. If it is still not on then you can check your CMOS Battery for any failure by test the good one from other similar laptop since you had two. I hope this help.
