Laptops don't powerup either because the battery isn't full, or it isn't plugged to the mains using the lead. if you think the above is fine then it must be because the laptops isn't accepting power in, either because of the motherboard has died, the chips have burned or the power button is faulty. if it's working using the battery but not using the charger then you need a DC socket repair. if it's plugged to the mains but there is no sign of any lights you're likely to have lost your motherboard. if your laptop does start but you see nothing on the screen its usualy the memory ram or the screen or the motherboard, plug it into an external screen and see what happens

this isn't something you can find a solution for in here, the best way is to take it to your repair shop
an independent one will do, or else I recommend a website which collects it and does it for you
cheaptofix.co.uk

I hope this helps. Please rate me.

My labtop will not get passed a black screen


This is generally caused by a hard drive failure, and 8 out of 10 times the hard drive needs replaced. However, it could be an operating system glitch. Start by doing a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, the reformat the hard drive, and install a new operating system. If the hard drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.
