My ibm think centre wont boot i hear the fans come on but no boot


Without a laptop model number, we can only give you general advice.

Does the laptop beep when you turn it on? If it does, the number of beeps will indicate what is wrong.

If it does not beep, there may be a power issue - try removing the battery and use the AC Adapter only. Also, try swapping out the power adapter if you can.

IBM Think Centre M52- doesn't power on

Here is a checklist. Don't just visually inspect, take your hand and press them in.
Make sure that all power connections are seated.
Make sure that all cables are seated.
Make sure you didn't accidentally flip the switch on the back of the power supply. It happens sometimes, I have even done it myself. (not all power supplies have this switch).

If none of that helps. Post back exactly what it is doing.
Does it beep at all?
Do you get anything on the screen?
Can you hear the devices like CD-rom and hard drive spinning?
