The problem I'm having is that when I turn on my laptop nothing happens. No lights, no sounds. Nothing. When I put in the power supply the (connected to the mains) the socket light flashes. The power light on the laptop doesnt show.
Could you please help.
Unplug the power cable... Hold the power button down for 15 - 20 seconds... You wont see anything happening, but it is... Plug cable back in and see if the lights are lit... If not, unplug the power cable again, take out the battery, wait 10 seconds, put battery back in, plug pwer cable back in and the light should be on, allowing you to boot up...

Laptops don't boot for the following reasons: 1) Bad Power Cord. 2) Bad
DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. 3) Static
Charge Buildup. 4) Bad Motherboard.
The above 4 reasons are when
you press the power button and absolutely nothing happens. You hear no
fans running, no disk drive running, no one time clicking sound on the
CD Drive and No light for a second or two when the CD drives click. In
the case of a motherboard issue sometimes you will hear beep sounds or
see blinking lights. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the
technician what is going on with your motherboard and why it will not
boot. If you see the blinking lights or hear beeps count them.
So you have a power light which means your power cord and
dc power jack is good. So lets see if you have a static charge buildup.
the Power Cord and the Battery from the laptop, then Press and Hold the
Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back
into the laptop, but leave the battery out. Press the power button to
see if it boots. If it does you had a Static Charge Buildup and it's ok
to put your battery back in. If it does not you more than likely have
an issue with your motherboard.
You can try this: Shut the computer down and unplug the power cord from the computer. Remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and sing happy birthday to it. Or wait 15 seconds. Then plug the power cord back and try turning the system on. After it boots up, providing this fixes the problem, you may then replace the battery.
Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.
Sounds like the motherboard is getting power to the lights but not to the rest of the computer. try to drain all the power out of the laptop by unplugging it and holding the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and try again if this does not fix it your motherboard is probably shot and would need replaced.
