I was using my laptop just a few hours ago browsing Facebook, when my laptop just completely shut off instantly, and then wouldn't turn back on... the laptop was plugged in at the time.
The laptop shows no lights or anything indicating the laptop it plugged in like usual, and nothing at all happens when I press the power button.
I have tried plugging the laptop out, taking the battery out and holding the power button for 1 minute and plugging back in with no luck.
Also I should add that for about 2 months now ever since I installed Windows 7 I have been getting the message "Consider replacing your battery" and the battery hasn't been holding much of a charge, maybe 25-30 mins. But I don't know if this is the problem because shouldn't the laptop work as normal when plugged in?
Typically that flashing light means low battery. Which makes sense, as you probably have an issue with the AC Adapter that you plug into the computer to charge it, or the DC Jack that this adapter plugs into on the laptop. Either of these things will cause your computer to not charge the battery, and if there isn't enough power it won't turn on.
i believed there is a switch for power on and off on the side of the laptop with symbol (I/0)..make sure your laptop is plug in to your power source with the power brick(maybe there's no more juice in the battery)
Try to plug in an external monitor on laptop to check if there is a problem with your LCD.
Plug in the external monitor then boot the computer. If still nothing happens try removing the battery and the adapter, let it rest for a minute then plug in only the adapter and try to boot up with out the battery.
Try running you laptop with the battery and the AC adapter. If by plugging in your adapter there is no light indicator likewise or no powering up, then presumably there is a problem with the power supply circuitry in the motherboard. Normally the laptop should work with just the adapter, just the battery or both the battery and the adapter. If it will not perhaps your best bet is to seek professional repair service since this would require opening the motherboard. In most instances, this involves an smc fusible link, regulator transistors or even just cold solder or loose connections.
Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
I called and they told me,i have the same problem, to just turn the battery switch ( bottom thing) off and charge it over night via wall outlet. hope it helps im trying it as i type so i wouldn't know...
