Hi,

There are Few Possible Causes. Before we proceed, pull out the Battery Once again and Put it Back ON.

Then, Power ON the Button. Press F8. Did you see any Display?

If not :-

1. You might have Corrupted or Damaged Video Drivers.
2. Do you see any Backlight lit ON? IF not, it would be Bad Inverter Board. You need to replace it.
3. Faulty Screen. Rare but i have seen a Couple of times in my life.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for the response!!

    I knew that. I have already mentioned 3 Main Reasons for No Display. As you got the Sound, more often it confirms that the Hard Drive, Motherboard is Fine.

    You need to Inspect and Test - Video Card, Inverter Board and LCD Panel.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

Toshiba Satellite won't start up when AC plugged in


Try another Cord/Charger to verify the Cord, AC jack. If you plug in the AC cord after starting on battery, does the battery charge? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced power setting to your preference.

Wont start up


Remove the battery and AC Adapter cord, and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, without replacing the battery try plugging in your AC Adapter to see if you get any love. If that doesn't work, remove the AC adapter, reset the board again, and this time hold the power button down as you plug in the AC Adapter cord. If you still don't get any lights, you could try removing your memory, reset the board, replace the memory, plug in the AC Adapter, and try one more time.

If all of this fails...you should take advice from experts,call at-http://www.vtechsquad.com

Try This and see if it resets the whole system
This works for a Sony Laptop.
Remove AC power
Remove Battery
Press the power on button for 30 seconds the release.
Install the battery
Press the power on button

Providing that the battery has a sufficient charge, it should turn on. Mine did, and a Sony Technician provided the tip.

Good Luck

Dell inspiron m5030 wont boot up, ac adapter has green light then once it is pluged in light goes out.


Hi,

Try a hard reset. Sometimes it works and is always the first step to take.
Remove the battery and the ac adapter plug from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for forty seconds.
Install the battery and ac adapter .Now press the power button to attempt a boot into the OS.

If that doesn't work then remove the hard disk to see if it gets past the splash screen and the BIOS whines that it can't find a boo-table OS. That would indicate a hard disk failure.
Also try to remove the memory module(s) from the DIMM slots and then reinstalling them. That reset the modules and cleans some oxidation off the module pins (if there is any)

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need more information
Thanks

Do a hard reset by turning off the computer and removing the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Without any power source, press and hold the power button and put everything back after. Power on the computer again, if it does not work, try to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If it shows some display it means that the LCD monitor of your laptop has gone faulty.
