First check the power adapter.
When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Wii will not power back up after sudden power loss any way to reset

This could be bad, also could be good.

1. Check your power outlet and make sure if you have a powersurge protector, that it hadnt tripped. If it is tripped, there is in most cases a button on the side of the powersurge protector for a reset.

2. In the case that this was not on a powersurge protector, try moving the Wii to another outlet and try it from there. If that doesnt work, buy a new power cable. If the new Cable doesnt work, the Wii is most likely Fried and will not be able to be operational again.

Mitsubishi WD-52525 was working fine and now it will not turn on

This is just a shot - but it worked with my Sony (same problem).
Pressed remote power on button AND held Power button on TV on at the same time.

Set clicked 4 or 5 times and then came on....

Other, most have a (VERY small) reset switch on the rear - near where the power cord enters the TV... Use a flashlight and a mirror to locate it on your set....

Message usb powersurge

A usb power surge occurs when a usb device is drawing or providing too much power to a port. I would recommend replacement of such device before continueing. To trouble shoot what it is unplug all usb devices, start the computer, then plug devices in one by one.

There are some settings in the user page of this router that nedds to be adjusted before you can use the router. If this has been set up before, it is possible that the router has been set back to factory default caused by thunderstorm or it could also be powersurge.
