Question about PC Laptops
When I try to turn on my laptop the lights come on but the computer never boots up the screen stays black, it sounds like it is going to try and start but then stops after a few seconds the lights blink the go off does anyone have any ideas how to fix the problem please let me know.
Check the power supply for power. Replace if necessary. Also check the motherboard for proper operation. If no fans come on or only come on for a few seconds then you have a bad motherboard

This problem usually occurs if you have faulty RAM (memory)module or it may only need to be reseated to make proper electrical connection.
On the bottom of the laptop there are one or two panels, under one of these panels will be the memory module/s, you need to remove the screw/s securing the panel to reveal the memory. The memory modules are secured with spring loaded catches on the sides of the module, apply pressure to the side of the caches to release the memory module, remove and insert it a few times so it will make proper electrical connection.
Reboot youe laptop and if the laptop still does not work then the memory module most likely is faulty and needs to be replaced.

There are two possiblities, first is your data cable it may damage so you need to change it or your data cable not plugged properly so check it. Secondly, you need to reset your boot order to resolve your issue.
Thanks & Best of Luck
