Take out the battery and only hook up the ac adapter and turn on the laptop and see if you get power.

If that doesn't work then check your ac adapter to make sure the green light is on when its plugged into the wall outlet. If it is then you know the ac adapter is working properly.

Take the hard drive out and the dvd drive out of the laptop and then see if you can power on the laptop. If it still doesn't power on then that means the hard drive and dvd drive is good and also means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

My acer aspire 7736G was working fine, it's about 2.5 years old, and is used mainly with the power cord plugged in. When using it the other day the computer just went dead on me. I took the batter


You have reached the end life of the battery pack. The battery must have some minimum charge to have computer function even with the AC power pack connected. So I suggest you replace the battery pack as a solution. Any local Radio Shack store can test this battery I am told free of charge.

Nikon d40x suddenly stopped working- won't turn on- was working fine and when I connected it to laptop to download, it turned on , then suddenly went blank.


Do you get the 'push shutter button again' or 'turn off and on again ' message? If so the motor in the SQ unit that charges the shutter and moves the mirror up and down has failed. A very very common problem. The part is on constant back order at Nikon, and good luck getting it anyway as Nikon is going to stop selling parts to anyone in just a few weeks.

I have an everex nc1500. it was on working fine, then it suddenly went dead like it was on battery,(but was on charger). now no lights come on ,it doesnt charge, doesnt try to turn on in any way. it acts...


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.

ACER ASPIRE 9410-4933 LAPTOP SCREEN GOES BLANK DURING P.O.S.T.


Were you working with laptop in battery mode, not plugged in a/c power? You could have drained your internal DC battery & at the same time damaged your B.I.O.S. [button type] battery inside the laptop. that the computer goes into POST means that it is trying to FIND itself, not finding the graphics card, it does not know what type of 'picture' ( usually black screen with ""DOS"" words ) to show you.
1st- turn laptop on, you should see name,what type of cpu (the "inner " workings of computer) and sometimes the amount of memory (clicking like a digital timer) If not, don't worry. Press f1,or DELETE, ESCAPE (ESC), or read your book to find the KEY to puts you into SETUP. There should be a menu and somewhere there are DEFAULT. USE THOSE! Reboot to see results.

Computer boots fine but the monitor is blank


if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components.
if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.
