Try unplugging AC power lead and then take out the laptops battery, plug the AC power lead back in and try turning it on, see what happens. If the laptop turns on then there is a problem with the battery.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.

Hi I closed my laptop to put into hibernation mode and then noticed 2 days later that the power light was stuck on and not in hibernation. Upon opening the screen back up nothing happened. No lights, no...

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.

Hope this helps!

Blank screen, lights on front and no toshiba load screen.

You need to hold down the FN button and hit F8, let go, then leave it for a couple of seconds and keep trying till an image comes up. and if that doesn't work, give it a try with all of the F buttons. OR you just have a broken laptop

Samsung V25 Laptop When it is powered up nothing is showing on the screen although the power light is on and you can hear a noise. This has happened before and it just came on.

One way to make sure the system is still working, remove the Batery, then plug the power adapter only and turn the computer back on, normally if the laptop goes into Hybernation mode and the battery is low on power this can happen. If that fixes the system then you can do a safe shutdown and re-install the battery and turn your laptop on and it should come on, the fact that you mentioned this has happened before makes me believe it is Hybernation issue. Good Luck.
