Laptop won't turn on

Here is exactly what happened. I was coping a video to my laptop from my flash drive. Then suddenly my laptop turned off. If you look closely you will see three lights(look at the arrow) on the front of the laptop. usually those lights are always on, as long as the laptop is not been shut off. Now when i press the power button those ligths won't stay on, they only flash, and neither will the computer. I did have the laptop on my bed, but now i moved it to a flat surface. it was not overheated and it is pluged in.

I have noticed sometimes with my D600 that happened once to me scared the heck out of me because I was doing the same thing as you where, What I did was shut everything down on my 600 and then removed the battery the hard drive and any other drives, then took out the memory modules and after everything was out of my D600 I truned it back over and pushed the start button and held it for 10 seconds with NO POWER ON, after that I replaced My memory mods frist then the HD then The dvd,last but not least my battery. Hit the power button on thank the computer gods It turned back on and has been working ever since, My opinion was It was the Memory Modules Had got loose somehow But Its been working great ever since. So I hope It helps you, Let Me Know Thanks Bear001

What happened when my KM5035 Copier is unable to copy after refilling the toner?

Konica Minolta toner cartridge you DO NOT Refill!!! You buy new ones 3rd party or OEM recommend OEM, there are electronic chips on the cartridge that tell the copier if the cartridge is new or old putting a old cartridge in with new toner is still a old cartridge to the copier!!

You say the battery is charging? Have you tried another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Any damage? Drop? Do you leave the Laptop plugged in while not in use?

The screen on my Acer Aspire 6920 suddenly doesn't come on. The power light and bluetooth lights are on. The driver draw opens, but nothing else happens.

Please follow the diagnosis outlined in this article to check whether the backlight lamp or the inverter board are the root cause of the problem or not:

If you connect the external monitor & nothing is displayed on it, then this means that both the backlight lamp & the inverter board are fine. The main indicators in these cases are the sound, and the hard drive LED on the laptop case. If the laptop sounds just like it always does for a minute or two after being turned on, it means it's going ahead and booting the operating system, but the video processor or part of the motherboard circuit for video output has failed. If the laptop just sits there and beeps when you turn it on, or if you hear the fan but not the hard drive chuckling with its active LED flashing away, it means the laptop isn't getting as far as trying to boot the operating system. While this could be due to any number of hardware problems, the most common and easiest to
troubleshoot or repair is RAM failure. If your laptop has two RAM modules installed, try booting with just one and then the other in the primary slot. If your laptop only has one RAM module, you might consider buying one online from a site with a good memory selector, like

I was on my laptop, when all of a sudden the screen went black. I tried unplugging it and turning it back on, When I did, the the power button orange light went on, and I could hear the fan, but nothing...

Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately

When i turn on the LT, the hard drive starts clicking, but no video, cd drive works, but nothing shows on screen, I switched to an out side monitor, same thing, nothing happens. Am wondering if HD is bad...

the hard drive is definitely bad so take it out of the laptop, clicking noise means the platters inside of it are misaligned.

After taking out the hard drive then turn on the laptop and see if you get video. If you do then you know the hard drive was shorting out the motherboard. If you still don't get video then unseat and reseat the memory sticks one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning it on after each memory reseat.

If the laptop still doesn't turn on then take out the dvd drive as well.

If you still have no video then that means not only is the hard drive bad but also the motherboard.
