Laptop will not come on at all


You can try to reset hardware using following steps

1 Disconnect battery and ac adapter

2 Wait for 5 minutes.

3 Press and hold power button for 60 seconds and then release power button

4 Connect adapter (do not connect the battery ) and try to start by pressing the power button.

If it does not help, check ac adapter next

If the adapter is good, there can be some problem with motherboard

Computer won't start up

sounds like the cpu is dead, if your fan was full of dust theres a high chance it wasnt working properly for a while which would of caused the cpu to fry from lack of proper cooling and also the dust in the vents would have prevented heat from escapeing so its highly probable that the cpu is dead try replaceing it, i cannot gaurentee that anything else internally got fried from the heat tho, i had a similar problem a week ago

First thing, is the laptop getting very hot very fast? possibly dust in the ventilation blocking airflow or other component level issue causing overheating.

2nd, have you tried using the recovery discs? does the problem remain even after a fresh install?

Check these two things and report back.

Thank you,
I will fix it!!

You could leave it off for a few hours, but there is a much faster solution that does pretty much the same thing. Turn your computer off, unplug ur AC and battery. Then press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds. This will drain all of the power remaining in ur computer. Then plug ur ac adapter back in and it should be fine.

Laptop Screen is broken

Laptop screens are usually very pricey to fix. Chances ar eyou will need a new one , and the price of a new one + labor for someone to install it usually isn't worth it. For the same price you can purchase a brand new one!
