Re: computer won't turn on

Whether youve got power issues or not all is not lost your data should be safe. the battery can be removed usually from the underside or side of the laptop with a lock that needs to be slid across. click on my profile and theres people recommended who can help you out.

Re: computer won't turn on

Is it a Laptop? If yes, try to connect it to the main socket without the battery plugged with your machine. If it is a desktop, the only option that you have it to change the PSU or the SMPS.

Hi, I have a 1.5kva cyberpower inverter installed but it doesn't charge the batteries even after displaying the input voltage on screen. It will just drain the batteries and then shut down the output.

Unless a battery is completely drained, over time it begins charging less and less. If your laptop seems to run for less and less time each time you unplug it from the wall, you probably need to reset it. This is a simple process.

Disable all power-saving and automatic shutdown programs or routines on your computer. If your laptop power plan dims the screen or goes into sleep mode after a few minutes of idle time, disable that. Unplug the laptop's AC adapter cord. Drain the laptop battery. You can just use the laptop until it shuts itself off, or you can wander away and come back when it's gone dark. Make sure that you do not turn it off or allow itself to shut down to conserve power; you want it to run out of power entirely. If you happen to be in a hurry, feel free to exhaust the computer more quickly by playing a 3D graphics-intensive computer game or watching a bit of online video content. Plug the AC adapter back in and wait for the charging indicator light for your laptop to come back on. Once you see that the laptop has begun charging again you are free to do whatever you like, so long as you do not turn the computer off until the battery is fully charged.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.

Good luck.

Since the battery totally ran out, hence, now you require to charge it back up kindly do not try to switch on your laptop any more unless you have left it on charger for a minimum of 8 hrs. In case even after charging for 8 hrs it is doing the same thing i.e. logging off then, press f8 key while booting up and from the selection select last good known configuration and hit enter. That will fix everything. In few cases it's also f10 button hence try both f8 and f10.

Sounds like its entering hibernation or sleep. Check your power settings in control panel. If that doesn't correct it look into administrative tools and check the event logs for any errors that will lead you to the correct fix

Laptop turns off when charger is plugged in !!

Charger is bad and is not putting out the correct voltage which causes the computer to shut down. Battery probably isn't much good either if it only lasts for one hour. Get new batter and charger. Ebay'ers will help you find one cheap.

Cannot turn-on my laptop

Hello Mahriah.
Try the following steps:
1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook. 2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute. 3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery  and try starting the computer.
The issue might be with the excessive power in the capacitors on the Mother Board. We are performing the Power Drain procedure which will drain all the excessive power from the capacitors and it may make the laptop to work properly.
