Without seeing it, I'd guess the power unit might have failed, or it could be the motherboard. Modern computers have a system management controller you can try resetting, but on a 15 year old laptop I don't know what the equivalent would be, if it even exists. If it's the motherboard chances are it'll be cheaper to buy a new computer.

SOURCE: Laptop will not power on at all.

Don't know what you have for a laptop, so will have to give you a generic process, here. Power down. Remove hard drive, remove cd reader and/or floppy drive. Remove memory cards. Replace only 1 memory card in the main slot (probably marked as slot 1). Try to power it back up and let us know what happens.
Thanks!

Take the battery and power supply out and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset your hardware settings. Your backup battery isnt your problem. Does your battery light turn on when charging? Does your keyboard lights light up when it runs for a second (try pressing caps lock)?

SOURCE: Compaq presario a900 model a931nr wont boot, help!!!?

Sounds like the battery is in trouble (discharged) or the charger is bad. If you have access to a voltmeter, read the voltage across the power cable plug with the pack plugged into the house outlet socket. Does a lamp work when plugged into the same socket? If the pack checks ok, then the battery may not be able to receive charge. Have it checked by a dealer.

SOURCE: C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes

Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

My toshiba at200 table 10.1 wont turn on


1. When you press the power button to turn it on, do you see any thing on screen, like the toshiba boot up screen or something like that. Or is it completely blank (black color) always.

2. Can you see a faint image of your desktop (try to see it in dark place with flash light). This is important to confirm.

3. Also, when you press power button, do you see the LED lights on laptop blinking or solid green (which ones are in blinking/solid) and do hear any sound ? Or do you feel that your laptop doesnt even try to boot.

blank

The power is on but there's no display and the hard disk light is off


Is it absolutly nothing displaying on the screen when you are starting up your system, and just some lights coming from either the power/harddrive/battery status light? Can you hear the fan power on? If you do get something on your display, but then a blank screen after the post up screen, then your harddrive bad. If not... then, Alright let see, start out by connecting your power cord to the laptop while the battery is on to see if you get a battery chraging status indicator, if you do try to power the netbook and see if any thing works. If you still get a blank screen, then use the external vga port to a external monitor or something to see if you get any display, but I doubt it could be your screen, if you ain't hearing the windows welcome sound (if you are using windows) when it loads, unless you created a user password on your welcome screen prior to this incident. After that, if nothing works, take your battery out and power supply, press on the on button for about 30sec or so to see if it can clear the bios... sometime this will load the default value to the bios and it could work. If nothing happens, then it could be your rams. Take out the service port panel on the back, if you there are two sticks of rams in the ram bank, remove one and out and just try using one and power your laptop on to see if you get anything or do a vise versa to the other ram. If it works, you probraly have a bad ram. If not, then yeah we can say, it's your motherboard, either a currupt vga chipset, cpu, or simply the motherboard itself. If this is the case, I would reccommend you to sell for parts on ebay, craiglist and get a new one instead of trying to repair it. You can still take your hard drive and copy the files to another drive like your desktop computer.

My acer netbook 532h will not power on. just before problem the power on button stayed on and nothing happened; battery was pulled to turn unit off. unit has a blue light under the light bulb icon turn...


Two things to try first before we go further with the diagnosis:
1. Try to power up the netbook with the external hard drive disconnected & see if it will work.
2. Try powering up the netbook from the AC adapter only with the battery removed.

Screen does not turn on but green light is on.


Green light indicates the monitor is getting power. Nothing coming up on the screen indicates, No Signal.

No signal from the computer. This means the computer itself isn't working.

A bad power supply in the computer can cause this. A bad power supply is the leading cause of desktop computer failure. It is replaceable, and can be done by the owner relatively easy.

You may have a computer tower that the Power light comes on, you hear fan/s spinning, (Including the Power Supply fan), and it sounds like the harddrive is running.

ALL the lights in your computer use less than 1 Watt.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
A harddrive sitting there spinning in an endless loop, consumes about 2 to 3 Watts.

A Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

A weak Power Supply will have enough power for lights, fans, and that harddrive sitting there spinning.
It won't have enough power to turn on the Processor.

[No processor operating, then the harddrive sits there spinning in an endless loop, because there is no processor to find the boot sector]

For a test, connect your monitor to a know good computer. See if it works.
Now connect that other monitor to your computer.

My winbook 330 will not turn on. I have the power


You could try removing all memory, CMOS battery and try to clear BIOS by holding down power button for 30 seconds.
Re-install all and try to restart.
Sound like unit may have run hot and burnt the Processor.

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
