1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced. 2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop. 3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work. 4. The power button could be bad. 5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
There is a couple reasons this could happen.
1. You might have another program that's using the camera and it is conflicting.
2. The software is not turning on the camera in which point try to turn it on manually.
Just for the heck of it try to use the camera without the youcam software if it still don't work.
Then uninstall youcam and see if it works.
Sometimes software is not compatible with all computers and it does some funky things.
