Try removing the battery, plug the power cable into the laptop while it is already plugged into the wall then hold the power button down till it comes on. If/when it works, let it boot all the way, shut it down and put the battery back in. It should boot normal again.
It happens due to a relay tripping after a power surge. That procedure resets the relay. Works on a few name brand laptops, including Toshiba.

Can i test the on/off button to see if its broken


If the fans start up and stop it sounds like a power supply problem and the power supply is shutting down to protect itself. You may have short on any of the power supply leads or in the motherboard.

Have dell Inspiron 546 minitower. Been acting up lately where it won't power up. The LED light on PSU below voltage switch is green. Light on MB is orange. No power or indication at all on front...


PSU's put out several different voltages if the 12Vs isn't working it won't power the motherboard. Some outputs may still be functioning therefore you may see some lights on and even some fans running. Replace the PSU.

My hp laptop won't power up. I bought a new power cord and connected to my laptop and the power light won't come on, so what esle can i do to get power to my laptop?


Have you followed the Guided Troubleshooting steps provided on the HP Support web site?

These will take you through a series of checks and decisions to try to isolate the cause of the problem along the following lines:

1. Are you sure you are plugged in to a good power outlet - can you plug a lamp in and does it work?

2. Are you sure that you are using the right power adapter for this laptop, is it the original HP block supplied with the laptop or is it a replacement - if the latter, then does it supply the correct output voltage and watts required by the laptop.

3. Are you sure the problem is not just the laptop display being dead, i.e. have you tried attaching an external display, do you get any leds light on the laptop for power, disk activity etc?

4. Have you tried removing the battery from the laptop and connecting the power adapter with it removed to prove that the battery is not preventing the laptop from powering on?

5. Have you disconnected all external devices from the laptop, in particular docking station, printers, USB devices etc to ensure that no external device is preventing it from powering on?

6. Do you have another power adapter that you can try using - are there any lights on the power adapter to show that it is working?

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

Desktop won't start.


Try to replace the power supply with another known working power supply from another P4 desktop and then reconnect your wires from the front panel led lights, changing them around until they are in the correct position. I had an almost similar problem and I did the above, it is working now. All the best ! sirjohn

Dismantled notebook thinking compressed air removed component or connection. Nothing. Reassembled most of notebook. Left battery and power disconnected for 6.5 hours, I later plugged only AC power into unit. Fans started spinning. Completed assemble of notebook and installed the battery. Blue lights returned. Problem seems to be the battery. Shorts out something and needs about 6 hours drain out. Works great now without battery, using AC power only. Ordered new battery.....
