Question about Computers & Internet
What blue light? Where is it?
Won't charge? The battery? So you must mean it was getting a low battery when you had it turned on and plugged in? If so, please check your power connections, and if all is hooked up and it still won't turn on, it could be any of a hundred things causing it, but you should check the battery at a place near you, even take the pc and power cord with you to a store that sells the batteries, and ask if they'll check it with a new battery with the power cord plugged in. New batteries often have no charge yet, so that may not help. And you can't run a laptop with just the power cord, it must have a battery also. Bear in mind, it may not be the battery at all. There are many things it could be. As I've told 2 others today-
We need more info about what happened that could have caused it, ok? Til then, here's a lil thing I just answered with someone else.
"ALWAYS try all the easy simple solutions 1st before you get into any complex ones! Then if simple solutions don't work, try others, but I'd sure avoid opening my laptop and monkeying around with stuff inside!
Usually the reset routine (unplugging the power cord and take out battery for a minute) works, or try unplug/battery out/ hold power button down for 2 minutes, hook all back up again.
BUT there are so many problems that can cause this same issue. It can be caused by a dead battery, bad power cord or connection, or liquid getting into the pc, or a new ap that is causing it. ETC. Mine even once had a problem that somehow "pages" in my system folder were locked, though I didn't lock them, but it kept my pc off til Windows found it's own solution online somehow. Just recently I installed a new ap that made my startup ap keep trying to keep it from running, and it kept insisting, so it took about 4 minutes before pc came on finally, and I then uninstalled that ap fast. As you can see, so many things can make it happen. Be careful what you do to attempt to fix it! If possible, always tell us exactly what you did before that happened. One thing you can try if it happens to you is- do the unplug/remove battery a minute, put both back in/on, and then when you start it up, BEFORE it starts loading Windows, press F8 over and over til SAFE mode option comes on, pick safe mode, and go find in your system the Control Panel, then "Recovery", then "System Restore". That can take your PC back in time to a day or 3 before present and you lose no data. Pick a time very close to the last time you used the pc, and run that. Often that fixes any problem within the pc itself. Try again with a different time TO GO BACK TO, before giving that up. I'd never try other things 1st, til I tried these simple things.
If that doesn't work for you, come back, and give us details about what happened, please. That makes a big difference when trying to help you. :)
If you got liquid in it, DO NOT run pc for a couple weeks, and let it dry completely before you try to run it again.
If it could be the battery, DO NOT go buy another one without being sure that's really the problem. Take your pc and old battery to a place that can check it for you, like a battery store. Don't just follow advice to open the pc and work on it!! If you're not an expert, you can ruin your pc.
