G61-306NR power button doesn't work


Disk Drive works, Memory is good, so any Blinking Lights or Beeps when you hit the power button? Does anything ever post to the lcd screen when you press the power button?

It sounds like either you've got a memory issue or a video card issue. Just because the memory worked in your friend's computer does not mean it will work in yours. Your Slot where the memory goes might be bad.

When you plug in the power cord is there anylights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter ofthe power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

I tried to power on my computer and there was nothing. It was plugged in and the battery light was blinking amber when I tried to press the power button. The light on the power cord is green but there is...


It sounds like the Power adapter is:

1. Not plugged into the computer
2. Not functioning
3. Has a broken connector (or the laptop has a broken power connector)

Unplug the adapter, remove the battery, hold the power button on the laptop for 30 seconds. Plug in the power adapter connector to the laptop - if the power indicator illuminates, remove the power cord, insert the battery ant then plug in the power cord. Press the power button (hopefully you're back in business).

If that does not help, p borrow an adapter from a friend and try it with your laptop, if it works, then go buy a new adapter!

Hello,

There are a number of things that can cause this to happen. Try taking the battery out of the notebook, disconnect the AC adaptor (if in use) press the power button a few times. Re-install the battery, reconnect the AC (if needed), press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds. This is a hard reboot and should correct you issue. When the notebook powers up, make sure you remove any cd's in the cd-rom drive.

Good Luck,

Power light blinks


Try using a different AC power adapter. It sounds like the laptop is not getting the proper power or not getting any at all. Have you taken out the battery and tried to power the computer on while plugged in? Also, take a pen or something similar and see if the DC jack (place on the laptop where the power cord plugs in) moves or appears loose.

Blinking power button, no responce from the laptop


sound like you charger is broken, i think tose use the same charger as the compaq presarios, evo's if you can get a used 65 wat that problem would have been fixed, but those are still pretty new, i think you can get a new charger for free if it's still under warranty
