Hi Mellisa,
If there isn't any lights on the laptop when it is plugged into the mains supply there is a power problem.
Check the surge protector, has got a reset button?
Plug a lamp into this surge board, if the lamp lights up when the board is connected to the mains then the surge board is OK.
Next check the laptop's power adapter with a multimeter, the voltage reading should be as per the label on the adapter. If the voltage is less than the voltage on the label, then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Borrow another adapter to connect to your laptop to see if it powers up or take it to your friendly computer shop to test it.

SOURCE: There was a power outage

Check for obvious first like;

Power cycle the strip by turning off and then on the, if that doesn't work try plugging into another power outlet or plug another device or appliance to see if the power outlet is good.

Sounds like an issue with the DM pcb. most likely some small electrolytic capacitors. you will need to remove DM pcb & take cover off. look for capacitors with bulging tops. note the values & location & replace all capacitors with bulging tops.

Power in house went out. T.V. wont turn on.


Did you have a surge protector on the TV? Have you tried unplugging it for 5 minutes, if not try that. If it still won't work contact your local electrical power provider and start a claim for damages from the power outage.

My area recently had a power failure. Oddly, during the power failure I could still see a light coming from the Canon MG5220 printer. After power was restored, it was sometime later when I noticed that...


Unfortunately, it sounds like when the power was restored, the printer experienced a surge. If this was not plugged into a surge protector, then it's possible the switch was fried at the point of power restoration. It is important that with units such as printers, monitors, towers (computer), tv's, vcr/dvd players, almost any type of electrical appliance be plugged into a surge protector. However, even if this was true in this case - when a power shortage (outage) is experienced, it is necessary to unplug everything so that when the power is restored, nothing that is plugged in will be affected; as your printer was.
Now, you can have this fixed - either take it to a local computer repair shop; that might be able to fix it, or contact the manufacturer and inquire about sending the unit in for repair - regardless of warranty or not. If it is still under warranty, they may honor it. I am not positive they will for an accidental damage such as this, but it's worth calling them.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Please try to remove the battery and than try to switch on the laptop directly from mains power and if it works than its your battery problem or if it still not starts than there is possibility of some components of your laptop may fired due power fluctuation. So go and contact service station.
