SOURCE: BLINKING POWER LIGHT

When you restart your notebook do you have a blinking cursor when the system freezes? It sounds like you need to reset your BIOS. To do this, power off then on your unit, Press F10 to enter BIOS settings, and then F9 to reset the BIOS to default settings. (Your functions may be a little different but you can read your menu to see which function key to select.) Once this done, select "Save and Exit BIOS" This should get you going. As for the blinking light, sometimes this happens when the battery is not holding a charge. If your battery is new, try the BIOS reset first and comment on your results. I can guide you through the battery reset process, if needed. Good Luck.

Do you have another power cord to check? Most places like bestbuy is willing to let you test a universal power cord for your type of laptop before you buy. Usually in your case, the power cord or connector has gone bad. If you test the laptop at the store and it doesnt work then its your connector but if it works. you could consider buying that power cord.

Hi,

Restart the notebook and check. If the issue still persist, disconnect the power cord, take out the battery, press the power button for 30 seconds to drain out static electricity.

Connect the battery back and turn the notebook on and check, if the issue is still there your notebook needs a repair. The screen has gone bad, the graphics chipset is good as you are getting a display on your TV.

Regards,
Shrey

Hi.

Sounds more like a power supply problem. First test the on/off switch by tracing the wires to where it connects to the mother board. The plug is usually marked "pwr sw" . Unplug the wire from the board & short out the 2 pins where the switch was plugged in using a small screw driver or any other conductive material. If the pc still fails to turn on, try replacing the power supply.
Best wishes,

ALIENWARE DESKTOP LOST ALL POWER


In a laptop, you can lose power in three ways.
1. Dead battery 2. Dead Power cord. 3. Bad motherboard.
ther first two should be rather obvious, as the battery won't work or it won't hold a charge, but if it won't turn on at all, even while plugged in, chances are that you're going to need a new motheboard. This can be expensive in the M--x laptops, unfortunately.
Sorry for the bad news, mate.

There is usually a reset and a ON button. the latter being larger was that one tried?

Might be stuck in hibernation. Pull the battery and ac power for about 1 hour. Replace and try to boot. If fails, pull the battery and try to boot just off ac power.
