Plug it into the power cord.  If it still doesn't work, replace the whole power cord.  Get one from ebay pretty cheap.  I have ran into alot of faulty power cords for the IBM T Series laptops in my  line of work.

My packard acer wont turn , power light comes on when pluged it , but wont power up


Packard Bell, Acer? Which manufacturer? Remove the power, remove the battery, remove hdd and RAM. Plug in the power supply and press On. It will complain that is has not any RAM etc. If it does, insert one RAM chip and try again gradually if not you have a motherboard issue.

I can not turn on wireless to my hp pavilion zd8000


You have a number of options:

1. Make sure the wireless switch is in the "on" position. This means that the switch is slid to the right. If it is, and the light is blue, then the wireless is working just fine, you just need to connect to a wireless router. However, if the light remains orange...

2. If you have Vista, go into the start menu and right click on "Computer" (XP, right click on "My Computer" on the desktop or where ever you stashed it) and click on "Manage" in the drop down menu. After you do this, you will see a menu on the left, double click on Device Manager (6th item down). This will open another list of items. You need to go to "Network Adapters". This drop list will tell you whether or not the wireless card is being detected. Should say something like "Broadcam 802.11 b/g WLAN". If you see that, the computer is detecting the wireless card and your wireless should be working (however, if it is detecting it and the wireless light is still orange, check the switch again, if it is switched on, then you are about to have a motherboard problem). If the wireless card is not being detected...

3. You either have a HDD, wireless card, or motherboard problem (more often than not it is the motherboard, and you would be hard pressed to find one cheap). If you want to simply try to replace the cheaper parts first and hope that works, start with the wireless card, then go into the HDD, after that, obviously, the motherboard. But I will tell you from experience, that it is more often than not, a defective motherboard.

Hi grade laptop boot problem


crashing a few times in order to boot can be caused by corrupted boot files that Windows required.
Try do a "scan for bad sectors" checkdisk (Right click C: in My Computer, click Properties. Click Tools tab and then Check Now button, tick both option boxes and it should ask to reboot for the bad sector check. 8c484d1.jpg
You can also use HDD Regenerator to fix corrupted files. Read my other posts for details.

Laptop wont turn on philips freevents x51


The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

Just Remember, A Laptops life expectancy is 3 years, after that you are treading on thin ice keeping Important Documents on it.
