Does the computer start from the power supply? If you try removing the battery completely, does it still start?
If the answer to both the above questions is "yes", and it doesn't work with the battery only, then indeed you should replace the battery.
Try visiting the support site for the model of computer and downloading all drivers for that model to a thumb drive. This has worked for me whenever I work with certain models. If your computer does not have acces to the web, try using a friends or library computer. Make sure you take any model numbers and serial numbers or service tag information with you.
Hello there: If this computer was working before the power went out and now that the power is back but the computer is not working would lead me to believe that the fuse in the power supply has failed or the circuit board in the power supply is bad and must be replaced. If you feel like you can do this work and want to open it up the fuses on the inside of these are located on the green circuit board that sits to the right side of the power supply. . staples or radio shack will have them ok i hope that this is very helpful for you. best regards M
Hello there: If nothing at all is working and you have reset everything It sounds like to me that your power supply might have blown the fuse that is inside of it If you feel comfortable about taking it apart the fuse should be a replaceable glass fuse ok
First of all I'm not sure what you mean when you say Generic Problem. You were asked before what Quit working? This solution is for PC's. Whenever a PC quit working at work I check all the attached cables and make sure theere isn't a Floppy or Disc in the computer. After that if the screen shows no error code than I'll press the power button and hold it for 30 seconds until it powers off. When its off I'll unplug the power cord, wait 30 seconds and plug it back it. This will usually reset the machine. You really didn't give enough information. When you say QUIT WORKING what do you mean by Working?
