Re: Laptop will not come on . it started all of a sudden.

We started having problems with ours turning on. We had our laptop worked on by a local mom&pop shop. A week or so later, the laptop would only turn on if we held down the "on" button hard for 30 seconds (or more). Sadly, this is still the case...but at least the laptop still turns on.

Re: Laptop will not come on . it started all of a sudden.

When you connect to the raw power, do you hear any beeps ? Is there a sequence ? Long beeps / short beeps ? Anything of this sort could mean a issue wiht the internal hardware.

If there are no beeps, then I think its with the power itself. Could be the power cord .

Hope this helps

Your processor fan is most likely failing. Try cracking it open and cleaning the fan with canned air. Also, reseat the fan's connector cable.

My T42 suddenly wont recharge the battery or wrk off mainsadapter

If the Laptop wont work off the power adepter, it also will not charge. The adepter could be bad (even if showing a power light) or the connector on the laptop could be broken. The best test is to take the battery out, attach the power adepter and try to start the computer if it starts, your battery is at fault. If nothing, suspect eh charger first. Be sure the pin on the Laptop power connector isn't bent or broken.
