This might sound really silly but some laptops after a while get a glitch where they cant power down fully and go into sleep or hibernate adn i have seen it happen to people who do not allow the battery to completely drain occasionally, had a family members did this recently. Just to rule it out turn it on and shen you hear fans and see lights even with no desktop, press and hold on the power button 3-5 sec until it shuts itself down, then do a normal start when you can see no lights or hear any sounds. Good luck.

SOURCE: labtop wont start up

check if u installed any new device recently. unplug all external cards like PCMCIA, USB drives, Memory cards and any USB device and try it again. if it continues, go to your bios settings and check your boot settings, make sure it boots from hard drive and not CD/DVD drive. if you have done any setting to the bios, revert it and try to start again. if it continues, check your keypads and buttons and make sure you don't have a sticky key or button that is pressed down. Cheers!

Try this. while laptop is off plug it into the tv then power up the laptop. There also should be a Video selection keys on the keyboard. Something like a blue FN Key and then one of the F1-F12 keys. Pressing those two keys should cycle threw the displays

I replaced the monitor on this labtop, but when I turn it on the screen comes on but nothing else, tried it on a desktop screen and it's booting but not on the labtop, help

You say you replaced the monitor. How did you do that? Did you just replace the screen? If so,the inverter is probably bad. Look really carefully at the screen when you start the computer--can you see the images but they are really dark? If so, then the backlight needs to be replaced.
