Unplug from AC, open the case, clean if necessary, reseat the memory mods, use Electronic Contact Cleaner spray on contacts, plug in, push the on/off button. Does it begin to start, and in a few seconds completly shuts down? No LED's , no fans, nothing? Sounds like a PSU failure. Mine went out in 6 years.
Remove Power Cord then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then put the cord back in and try to start it.
When you press the Power Button are you hearing the fans run, the disk drive running, the cd drive click and the light on it comes on for a second or two?
Anything shows up on the LCD Screen?
If you press the power button and absolutely nothing is happening then you most likely have a bad power supply.
If you press the power button and you start hearing beep sounds or blinking lights in a continuous pattern (ex. 1 long followed by 2 short) then you have a motherboard issue. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the technician what is going on with the computer.
First check the power source and if ti gets power...Check also the battery. If it seams to have power but it just do not start ..than check the ram memory ...and also the CPU fan ..Usually if it seam to have power but when you hit the on button do not make any sound at all ..not even the fan ..than it is either the cpu corrupted or the motherboard..but mostly the cpu ..cause when the motherboard is out of order...usually it do not show power at all on the power led and hdd led.... If it starts the fan ..but no image at all..you may consider a video card issue ...but for now..try to open it and see if the ram memory is not to blame ..or the cpu ..cause after you eliminate a power issue ..these 2 are the only one capable to make it act this way ..
This may work however i think by ignoring the sound of the Fan you might have destroyed the cpu and the motherboard.If you can try the processor in another machine you might just have to replace the motherboard only.
Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. When this happens it usually suggests that the CPU/system board has failed. If the laptop is still under warranty I would suggest taking it back because this is something that will be covered and they should be able to fix it or replace the laptop itself. If not you may have to pay to have the system board/CPU replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. Si :)
Either the new power supply you purchased is not functioning correctly. But, assuming it is now that you are getting some form of power to your PC, it is very likely the motherboard. Whatever fried your old power supply (or it could have just been the power supply itself) most likely fried your motherboard in the process. Probably not the CPU since the MB can't even post.
