Hello Vincezo:

Try this trick...remove battery...unlplug from wall...hold the power button on and then plug into the wall.

Let me know if this works for you. If not you may be looking at a hardware failure (mainboard).

Good Luck my friend.

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

Laptop wont turn on


Very often this is a situation where the battery is dead and the power cord is not working. First off, check to make sure that the power cord is plugged securely in the laptop and securely in the power outlet. Is there a light glowing anywhere on the laptop? If not, you have no power going through the power cord. Check to make sure the power outlet is live. If you plug in a lamp or other device and get power, you have a bad power cord. I always keep a spare power supply cord for my portable computers. You can get them on eBay for $10 or so. When you know that your laptop is getting power through its power cord, but there is no power light glowing on your laptop, it is time to visit a computer repair shop. If the power light is glowing, but the computer will not come on, please describe what steps you are taking and what, if anything, the computer is doing.

    My HP laptop (pavilion dv9700) will not start up. It was working fine then suddenly shut off while the cord was plugged in. The blue ring still lights up where you plug in the power chord, but nothing else...


    Try the following:
    1. Unplug the power cord from the laptop.
    2. Remove the battery.
    3. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
    4. Re-insert the battery.
    5. Plug in the power cord.
    6. Try turning on the computer.

    Blank screen on laptop


    Sorry to hear you are having problems. I have had this same issue before with this particular model. The following solution works 90% of the time.Perform a hard reset as the first procedure.
    1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
    2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds .
    3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not connect the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a disk drive and fan turning.
    Meaning of Sample Blink Codes for some EFI Notebooks Number of Blinks or Beeps Location of Blinking LEDs Component Being Checked Error Condition Continuous glow Battery power LED Battery The AC adapter is attached and the battery is charging, but does not yet have sufficient charge to power the notebook. 1 Caps Lock/Num Lock CPU CPU not functional 2 Caps Lock/Num Lock BIOS BIOS corruption failure 3 Caps Lock/Num Lock Memory Module error not functional 4 Caps Lock/Num Lock Graphics Graphics controller not functional 5 Caps Lock/Num Lock System board General system board failure 6 Caps Lock/Num Lock BIOS BIOS authentication failure Continuous blink AC power adapter LED Power adapter Insufficient power
    Blink codes are often displayed after a user adds memory to the computer but does not seat the module properly. The LEDs may also blink error codes if a hardware component is loose because the computer was dropped or jarred. Some HP Notebook PCs come with one stick of memory but have two memory slots. The problem could be that the stick of memory or one of the memory slots has a bad connection. The memory module compartment on most notebooks is located on the bottom of the case. The exact position varies by model. However, on some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.

    Use the following steps to remove and reseat the memory modules: Step 1 - Remove the electrical power To remove all power from the computer and prevent accidental damage to the electronic components, do the following:
    1. Turn off the computer by pressing and holding down the Power button for about 30 seconds.
    2. Unplug the AC adaptor from the notebook.
    3. Slide and hold the battery release latch to the unlock position.
    4. Use your finger to lift the battery up and out.

  • Remove the memory module cover on the bottom of the notebook .Loosen the compartment's retention screws and lift up and remove the memory compartment cover. Remove the memory modules from the memory slots To prevent damage to the memory module, grasp the memory module by the side edges. Do not touch the metal contacts.
    1 - Pull the retention clips away from sides of the memory module
    2 - Gently pull the module out of the memory module slot
  • Reseat the memory module by holding module at a 45-degree angle, and pressing it firmly into the memory slot until it is seated.

    After reseating the memory module, replace the cover over the memory compartment before restarting the computer

    Hope this helps FiYa! If you find this solution helpful, please take a moment to leave us some feedback.

    Thank You!

    My computer was working fine, but I lost my charger. I bought a universal charger and used it for some time. One day I plugged the computer in and the light on universal charger lit up until I plugged it...


    I think that your battery is soooo flat it may be no good, take battery out, THEN connect the Correct adapter, and see if that works, if it does, then ya do need a new Batt, or perhaps a good long10-12 hour charge first, with NO use at all during that period.

    Blank screen upon startup


    Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.
