This means that the system is not posting. You need to have a motherboard replacement.

These models were famous for power connector problems. If it comes on with a good battery, it's a broken wire inside the wire from the AC adapter. If you can, try another adapter or battery. Another shot may be re-seating the ram modules.

When turning on power it shuts down


If it is shutting off as opposed to restarting it is most likely a heating problem or possibly dead fan. There are fail safes in computers that will cause them to shut off if they can't detect a fan or are too hot.

In this case your CPU fan is bad or faulty already remove the CPU fan and clean. Or you may replace the CPU fan.

You might be able to verify by taking a fairly bright flashlight and aiminig across your screen when it does shut off. If you can see the image, it's probably the inverter.

If you've tried an external monitor and it does the same thing, it's probably the video card (hopefully yours is the replaceable kind.)

Six screws on the bezel and carefully pop it off. The inverter is on the bottom of the screen. I just replaced a broken screen on that exact model.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

Boot problem on inspiron 1150


Try connecting it to an external monitor.
When you do, as soon as you press the power button to turn on the laptop, close the laptop lid - as this forces the laptop to display on an external monitor.
If this works, then it means the laptop screen is bad.
If it doesn't, the most likely cause would be that the laptop video card went bad.
For a while, some older Dell laptops with high-end nVidia graphics cards tended to die suddenly.

Acer Aspire 5010.. Power on, but Blank screen/ hard drive light also not.


Hi,
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Faulty Hard-Drive.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.

Not booting, then shuts down?


I had the same problem. The computer is getting to hot. I opened the case and removed and cleaned the fan. It was full of lint thus keeping the fan from cooling.
