Could be a bad battery. Try taking the battery out and leaving the laptop plugged in to see if it boots up. Also, you can try a hard reboot to fix the issue.

Try taking the battery out. Then with the computer plugged into the AC adapter turn the computer on.

There have been cases where bad batteries were causing odd electrical fluctuations that prevented the computer from working correctly.

If that doesn't work you can leave the batteries out, unplug the computer for a few minutes. Put the batteries back in, plug the AC adapter in and try starting the computer. Its not a full reset but it may help.

You could also try attaching your computer to a tv or another monitor

This seems like a poor soldering job at the factory which has become loose/disconnected over time, affecting the power port the ac adapter plugs into. Take the laptop to the shop and have your power jack inspected.

You've overloaded and busted the PSU. The voltages are different in different countries and you should use a voltage stabilizer which you haven't. You need to get the warranty out as it can be expensive to replace and fit in a shop.

I have a hp530 laptop and it wont switch on


you can try to remove the battery (turn over the laptop and underneath, you'll see 2 clips that hold the battery in place).
then with battery removed, plug the charger in and try powering the laptop up. (this would work if you have a faulty battery).
If this doesnt work, I would bet you have a hardware problem (either motherboard or RAM, etc). return the laptop to the shop you purchased it from for further support. (hopefully it is still under guarantee?)
Good Luck!

My computer is no longer coming on.


Try starting in save mode (start tapping F8 after you turn the computer on) and see if it will boot there. If it will, try taking it back in time:

Start > Help and Support > Undo changes made to my computer > Restore my computer to an earlier time. Select a date that is before you flashed the bios, and follow all screen instructions.

Laptop wont turn on (acer aspire 5002wlmi)


Sounds like it's hitting a dead cell in the battery. If you are a very skilled electrician or computer tech you can find and replace dead cells in the battery by taking it apart. Otherwise your safest and easiest solution would be the purchase a replacement battery. Check on ebay, usually you can find them for a fraction of regular cost.
