SOURCE: Will not turn on
When holding the power button, to turn on the device, the screen pixelates dark and then goes blank. If I continue to hold the power button the screen will continue to pixelate dark and then go blank. In the end, the device still will not turn on.

If using rechargeable batteries, your batteries are not getting charged. Check your charger, battery contacts and batteries. Clean contacts with a pencil eraser.
If using alkaline batteries, check placement of the batteries to be certain they are in the correct way, and also, clean the battery contacts.

Make sure the machine has power.
The battery might be dead, so connect your notebook to the AC power adapter and plug the adapter into a working AC outlet.
If you have a power strip or surge protector, make sure it is on.
If you are having trouble with battery power, recharge it if it has been fully discharged or replace it if necessary.
Check to make sure the computer is not in "sleep" or "hibernate" mode.
Press a key or the touchpad and wait for it to respond.
Try pressing the power button.
Make sure that you fully engage the power button.
You should press and hold the button for at least half a second but no more than three seconds for the machine to power on.
Adjust the screen's display brightness because it may be too dark. Press and hold the "FN" key and press the key with the icon to increase brightness.
This icon looks like an "up" arrow and a picture of the sun.
hope this helps
