Your not getting power? When you plug the laptop in does the Battery charge light come on? Are you getting power to the laptop? Do you have a multimeter to verify voltage from th AC outlet to the AC jack? Or ,the power gets to the laptop and push the on/off button you get no response? Or, you push the on/off button and the laptop starts then shut down? No lights, no leds blink. Remove battery, Try another cord/charger. Has it been dropped or damaged that would jar loose a connection, or pulled by the cord resulting in a damaged AC jack?
Computer does not boot up 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. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
Possible reasons why your laptop doesn't boot ( Power on with green light indicator lit)
-battery problem -memory problem -power failure -etc ( maybe one of the hardware that is connected inside your laptop)
1. First you need to try switching on your laptop without the battery Basically you will remove the battery of your laptop and connect the ac power then switch it on.
a. If your laptop boot up ( with a green light indicator ) the problem will be the battery. b. If the laptop does not boot up continue using step 2.
2. Unplug the power adapter , remove the battery and memory Watch this video and it will help you to remove the memory http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdDf46XKXiE&feature=related NOTE: Your not going to upgrade your memory!
After removing the memory put it back close the panel and put back the screw.
Now after putting the memory , Try to plug the ac adapter and press the power button and check if your laptop will boot ( No need to put back the battery because your laptop will power up with out the battery )
If your laptop will still have the same problem the best thing to do is to bring it on the nearest support center for Samsung laptop because there's a possibility the problem will be the hardware that is connected inside your laptop.
I want to provide you the complete information on how to open your laptop however since your just new with this and to avoid any damages the best thing that you can do is to bring it on laptop specialist if the troubleshooting steps that I provided will not work.
Be careful Alright! Good luck Have a nice day Please rate my answer
It sounds like you damaged the cpu when it overheated. This is the most likely cause if you had it overclocked. Unless of course it has been dropped which could indicate the hard drive maybe damaged or loose. Check to make sure the hard drive is seated correctly as the lights flashing only mean that power is there it does not indicate if the drive actually cycles or spins up.
Have you tried to boot the laptop with the power cable connected? Is the charging indicator on when you connect it to the adapter? If the charging indicator does not light up, check if your adapter output and try booting it with the power cable connected.
The adapter does not have a switch. When you plug in the adapter into the laptop a LED lights up to indicate that it is connected to the mains supply and is charging.
When you boot up the laptop with the adapter connected and check the power setting from the Control Panel and if it indicates it is on battery power, then either the adapter is faulty or the connector is not making proper electrical contact. Wriggle the connector plug to see if the charge light comes on, if it does then the loose connector needs repairing.
Replace the adapter if it is faulty.
Probably something got knocked loose during the fall. As a first step, remove and reinsert the hard drive and memory module(s). Those seem to be the most common things to come loose. If that doesn't work, you will need to get under the covers of the laptop and reseat all of the cards and connectors.
Here is a link that shows you disassemble the M45.
