The laptop won't boot/turn on, no noise

This is a 3 y.o laptop, had a blue screen last week, didn't think much of it at the time since i rebooted and it worked fine. At one point yesterday, it went to sleep mode and turned itself off, since then I am unable to turn it on. The power lights are showing steady green, the battery is charged (I also took it off and tried without it putting the laptop straight to the electric outlet) made no difference, the light from the power button is not lighting up and nothing happens. No noise, not even trying to boot up, seems dead. Any suggestions?

    the laptop was working perfectly. i went to bed, computer was set to 'sleep'. i got up the next morning and it 'woke up' fine but it did not recognize the laptop screen being connected. it only 'saw' the external monitor that was connected via a VGA cable. i tried using graphics properties to get the main screen active but it didn't detect a dual monitor setup. i powered the unit down, disconnected the VGA cable, and tried to 'reboot' (start up) the laptop but it doesn't do anything now. The battery had a 97% charge before i powered down, and the green light showing the power cable/ charger is connected is glowing bright green. the 2nd green light, that shows laptop is turned on, is not 'on'. there hasn't been any bad weather, haven't moved the computer, not dropped it, no outside 'damage' or anything to 'blame' this on, it's got to be something internal. i've removed power cable, battery, and tried booting it up w/ just power supply hooked up but no battery, and tried w/ both hooked up. it does absolutely NOTHING. the cooling fan/ bard drive do not even come on when power button is pressed.

Try this:

Remove all connectors, media and devices (cables, USB devices, floppies, CDs etc)

1. Press AND hold the power button for 10 seconds. Light should go out.

2. Remove battery.

3. Plug in PSU (the AC power supply unit)

4. Press power button.

5. If the laptop starts, go all the way to desktop and run the laptop for 20 minutes or so.

6. Shut down and remove PSU.

7. Re-attach PSU and then insert battery.

8. start laptop. If it starts, go all the way to desktop and use laptop for an hour or so, to monitor the battery state, see if it is charging. If it is, go to step 9. If not, test PSU and battery, to see which needs replacement.


10. Uncheck HIBERNATION in the tab that applies.

11. Set all spin down, sleep/suspend and monitor settings to "never".

12. Apply/OK and Close Power CP

13. Now leave laptop on, let the laptop sit, idle (or use it) for at least 3 hours.

14. Shut down and remove PSU, then restart.

15. If the laptop will not start, or did not show a full charge before shutting down, replace the battery.

16. Go back and set spin down/suspend and monitor power settings to DEFAULT, but do not use hibernation any more on a 3 year old laptop!

    Hibernation doesn't matter on a 3 year old laptop, that's not what is causing the issue. The issue is related to the operating system. It more than likely blue screened because of the age of it. It could have to do with a virus or malware or something like that. I would reinstall the operating system or upgrade to a different one. After step 7, nothing the person has said will do anything. Do NOT change the power settings or disable hibernation as it will not have any other effect on your system except to take more power, make more heat as it won't go into standby and that's pretty much it. What would help the most is telling us what the blue screen said as they can be fairly specific to whatever problem may have happened.

Do you see an error message on the screen or, does it blue screen with an error message? When you boot up press F6 just as the PC drops out of BIOS mode. Select "Last Known Good Configuration". If that doesn't fix it, look up the error code on the blue screen with Google. Most blue screens are fixable. Some require a complete rebuild of your hard drive.

Probably a faulty hard drive. go into the setup screen and verify the HD setting is correct. save your settings and reboot. if this doesn't solve it, then take out battery and disconnect power, remove hard drive and reconnect. try reboot. if none of that works, then replace hard drive and reinstall OS.

I think it is your RAM chip. If you have 2 RAM chips put the one from the second bank and put it in the first and see if it boots up. RAM is pretty cheap now anyhow.

No bootable device means your computer is trying to boot from a storage device and it's unable to find the operating system. Check the your system BIOS to see if your computer is still detecting your harddrive. To do this:

1. Reboot your comp. While it's coming up, keep hitting "Delete". This will bring up the Set Up.

2. Using the navigation keys of your keyboard, navigate to the tab that says "Boot Preferences" and hit enter.

3. Switch the boot device to your harddrive and save your settings then reboot.

4. If your harddrive is not being detected, it's either loose or has gone bad. In which case it would be best to have a tech take a look at your notebook.

My laptop that has window xp just keep on rebooting and it just stuck on safe mode and dosnt want to go anywhere but reboot every time

It sounds like you have automatically reboot on error turned on which is Windows defualt. (dumb idea Microsoft). When you get the black and white screen that gives you several options to start your computer, one will be to turn off automatic restart.

Your computer will boot and you will get an blue error screen. That error will help you determine what is broken.

An alternative is to try last known good configuration, but I've never had much luck with that option.

A blue screen just comes and stays on, what can I do? Darryl. I have a 12 inch ibook g4

Bsod, 2 possibilities, hardware defect, and software problem,So check software.

Re-boot, keep tapping F8 while booting, enter black screen area, choose last known good, top 1

or, reboot again, F8 again, black screen, choose safe mode this time,

if/when booted, system restore, go back in time, re-boot.

or, Operating system disc in drive, reboot, when it says boot from disc, hit return, repair the o/s with the disc, (( care needed not to re-install ))

let it finish

I hope this helps

Laptop won' boot up.

The blue screen means the system is experiencing a fatal error... a error from which it cant recover.... so while booting press f8 and boot using safe mode... then analyse the startup programs of your system using Start->Run and then typing msconfig in the window that appears and then going to the startup tab... one of your latest installed program might be misfunctioning....
