    Does it show anything on the monitor or does it stay black and non-backlit? Have you tried reseating the memory as well?

    Hello, Can you please provide me with alittle more information. Does anything come up on the screen at all when you try to boot? Does anything happen, fan starts, lights flash briefly or is it just dead.....dead when you push the power on button.

Check and make sure that the backlight on the screen is hasn't burned out. Do you see the POST/Setup screen at first? If not then that MAY be your problem.

Toshiba Laptop Dead no bios


Most of laptops batteries have electronics inside them wich test and transmit info about the battery itself. Maybe the fail is there and not in the laptop. Try with another battery befor dumping it.

A series boot problems

Aseries laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. www.Toshiba.com will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.
Hope this fixes your problem.

Are you plugged in at all? Try with plug plugged in. I think your battery is dead.

Lenovo Think Pad T61P dead.


Did you try removing the battery pack and then putting it back in? I had disconnected my AC, closed the lid, put it in my backpack and went to the office. The battery light was on when I left but by the time I got to the office it was DOA. After checking the AC at the office I took out the battery pack and put it back in. Voila.

Wont turn on.. battery light just keeps falshing


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa.

You have a dead battery if your battery light just keeps on flashing and your laptop only works when plugged in to the A/C. Try to take out the battery and plug your laptop in to A/C. See if it works. You might be one of the unlucky ones who got a lemon battery. Several users have enountered the same exact problem. This is an Aspire one issue. Try to contact acer and see if they will send you a new battery right away. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

Will not boot... black screen?


Try removing the battery completely and powering it up on AC power. Sometimes a dead battery (even if you're plugged in to AC) will stall a boot-up in its tracks. If this doesn't help, please reply back and let me know if anything changed.

Will not power up, no lights or sound


tried to remove battery and ac for a little while?

if that doesnt work, remove battery and ac-power.
remove the ram
put ac-power back and try to boot without ram
(do you get a beep/error?)
remove the ac again
insert the ram
insert battery
insert ac
try to boot up again.

if that doesnt work its probably a mainboard error and you need to take the computer to repair.

Should my HP510 laptop work without a battery


Yes your laptop should power on with just AC power. The issue could be a loose connection for the AC power which caused the battery to stop being able to charge also. Unfortunately only solution for that if it is incase the problem is to open the laptop and have the power connector re soldered onto the board.
