Re: Computer does not turn on when I press the power...
Do u have the power adapter plugged in, or are you using battery power? the first thing i would try is disconnecting the battery. just compleatly remove it and set it aside. then try starting it with the adapter plugged in. sometimes the batteries go bad and are corrupt. i had this happen to a compaq laptop a few years back. after i got rid of the battery it worked fine. if it works u can always buy a new battery.

Hi. I suggest you try pressing the power button to wake it up or you could also try power draining it and turting it on. To powerdrain your computer you must remove first the battery and unplug the ac adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds, after that you must place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter then turn on your computer. Hope This Helps
remove the battery and adapter. press power button for 30 sec. then connect the adapter. press power button. if this didnt work. you need to ask for an help of a local tech to check for the video card and cable.
Turn the system off....remove the battery from the system...connect the system to power adaptor ONLY..the keep pressing the power button for about 15-20 seconds...then try to turn on...check if the system boots...let me know if the system works or not
My 2300 started same problems in Dec 08 (almost 2 years old) Its an overheat problem! With black screen the two blue lights an bottom left are on. Leave powered up and in an hour or so will shut down on its on, then will start back up normally but shut down again in about an hour.Correction 1. pull off back cover, blow out the dust. 2.Go to set up (F2 on power up and run fan cal) 3. Take the back cover off you will feel how hot the CPU and hard drive are that is because vents are too small for an aging laptop. Now take the cover and drill a double line of holes on each side of the hard drive vents, Next over the CPU (where the fan blows in air, drill a triple line of new vent holes in the cover). A 5/32 drill will be about right. You may also wish to purchase an inexpensive Belkin laptop cooler. About $19 at Best Buy. This solved my problem as I do like this little one for travel Glenn New Mexico
The problem is that the computer does not get enough power when you turn it on and that's why it doesn't boot.
Try to put a random CD in it and leave it there for an hour maybe two. By spinning the CD, more volts get through the mainboard. Then shut it down by pressing the power button and then press it again and see the results. If this wouldn't work the first time, try it again.
Ouch! Have you tried taking the battery out to see if it will
run on AC power when the battery is not installed? Sometimes a bad
battery can kill the system.
Do you have a meter that you can measure the output of the AC adapter
with to see if it is correct? If not, any chance you could swap
adapters with someone for a while to see if theirs works on your
computer and vice versa? A local shop may also be able to test your
adapter to see if it's working.
Flashing green battery means it is in suspend mode. Pushing the power button should bring it out of suspension, however, one of the reasons I deactivate both suspend and hibernate mode is because the seldom work right.
I would disconnect your A/C power cord and remove your battery from the laptop. After about 30 seconds plug them back in and your commuter should start again.
Let us know how things go.
