Could be a couple of things wrong.could be because the fan is not running,could be battery,have you tryed starting it with out the battery in,some laptops will run with out battery,if its over heating and the fan is not running it could stop it coming on,if its the fan get a hoover and put it at the side were the fan is and try and suck out and dust or dirt.if not try blowing into the fan to clear it..if it still dont come on, then as ehsanziyad said take it to a shop.

Can you remove the battery? If so pop it out and leave it out for a couple of minutes then pop it back in and see what happens.

Regards

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: Was using my Hp Pavilion dv7 laptop, suddenly

1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

SOURCE: dell inspiron Mini 1018 wont turn on, power

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Remove the battery, remove the cover that houses the memory then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Remove the battery and check the voltage on the battery, if low try to JUMP charge, if not replace. Also check the charging voltage with the adaptor connected to the latptop. If there is no voltage then the charger must be checked.
However if the battery and adapter seems good then the mother board is a suspect and it is ideal to get the help of Tosibha service for estimation.

This is not the motherboard. The batteries in laptops have electronic sensors in them. When they reach the end of life, they stop the computer from turning on. Once that happens it wont power on with the battery in or out. Batteries are not that expensive. Only about 25 dollars.

My dell inspiron 1420 looked as if the battery were running out, as the little battery picture showed a little x, but when I go to charge the battery, nothing happens. Now my computer won't even turn on. ...


Try to use a USB charger for the battery. It is around 20$ and you can plug the battery in that charger.
It's is just a temporary solution. Also it could be great if you could test with the same type of battery but from another laptop.
If you need further assistance, or further questions just leave a comment. Thank you for using FixYa. Cheers

Earlier my laptop shut down with no warning even though the charger was all connected and plugged in. now even though the charger is plugged in everytime i try to turn it back on the needs to be charged...


This could be caused by several things, but try the obvious first. I just bought a brand new power supply, and in less than a week the customer called and said it stopped working. I suggested she take the cord from the old charger and try it - it worked - the brand new cord lasted less than a week. The other thing that could cause this is a bad connection on the end of the power supply, going into the computer. It could even be a bad power supply.The last thing I can think of is a bad battery that won't hold a charge.
