Are there any LEDs on it at all? If not then it is ver likely that your Power board finally failed. In which case, with this model, you must replace the motherboard.

Completely dead acer chromebook..working fine on battery when plugged in died


So did you unplug the power supply and try to restart it? When you plugged the power supply in did the power light come on on the power supply showing it was working? Blue light usually.

My toshiba satellite L25-S1194 wont turn on. no lights, nothing. how could i fix this?


Try taking the battery out, plug the computer in, and see if it turns on. Press the "Power" button for at least 20 seconds (and press hard). If that doesn't work, put the battery back in, and do the same thing. I assume no lights appear like its charging (as you said). If this is the case, then you might have a dead charger (wire broke inside, power surge broke the adapter, etc). You may want to try a different charger of the same model (either from your local Best Buy or from a friend). If it does look like its charging, then your laptop's power supply has died (or the motherboard has died). This is a much bigger hardware problem and should be under warranty (or time to buy a new laptop). All data should be recoverable, however.

I powered my laptop is morning and there is no display. I can only see light in the screen, I removed my RAM and HDD and remounted them but my pc still the same. Can anyone help in this situation, I will...


Put everything back together...without the ram it won't boot up! Did you charge it recently? If not, plug in the power supply and wait 1 hour to see if it the transformer box gets warm to the touch. If not, you need a new power supply. If it is warm, you need to try to reseat the battery and try again. If still no output, the battery is dead!

I have a Gateway MX8711 Laptop and all of a sudden it powered off and even when I plugged in the power cord thinking that it may be the battery, it still will not power back on. What could be the problem?...


It should still run while plugged in dead battery or not. Depending on the age it may just have worn out. Power supply may be dead, that would be my guess.Most shops will charge a $70 fee to test it.

Certain years of brand new Gateways has a horrendous history of dying leading to a lot of "refurbished" machines being unleashed on the public.

Compaq Presario V6000 Power Problem


Sounds like the power supply might have died, probably before the battery did. Once the battery had run down, the computer simply died. Easiest way to check this would be to take it to a computer shop - they shouldn't charge you very much just to check the power supply - or try to locate another supply just like it and see if the computer will boot from the new power supply.
