  3. If available then check with another battery
  4. If no, then remove the battery & switch on the PC in AC mode.

Acer aspire 7000 doesnt start


Maybe it booted except the screen is black. Do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning? Lights?
If it seems like it booted up except the screen is black then try the steps below.


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.


If it is not booting up then try the steps below:



When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.


Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.


Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Do you get any indication that the laptop is trying to boot - do you have a Power LED that is lit, any other LED indicators that flash at all?Have you tried to connect the laptop to an external monitor and if so, do you get any error or progress messages shown on that display?If the laptop will not power on at all, then try removing the battery then plug back in the power supply and see if it will boot with the battery pack removed.

Black screen at power up


This means a failing Hard drive. This usualy happens due to viruses that corrupts the boot sector of the hard drive and it doesnt boot. It could be a result of improper shutdown, or if the computer was banged agaist the wall or dropped. You did the right thing removing the battery because it also can be a result of static electricity that has built around the computer. To solve this, remove the battery, the hard drive, the power cable and any cd from the cd drive. Press and hold the power button for about 2 to 3minutes. This will drain all the static power out of your computer!

What is Dry Boot of laptop and how to perform it?


Dry boot is a way to reset HP laptops. Sometimes it works and sometimes not. Here is how to do it.
Disconnect the power cord, remove the battery, press and hold the power button for about a minute. Then re-insert the battery and power cord and try to turn it back on again.
If you are still having the same issue, remove the battery but leave the power cord and try to turn it on. Oh yeah, disconnect any USB devices and a monitor (if you connected a monitor to your laptop), make sure there is no disc in the drive either.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

My IBM T40 boots to a black screen with the "z"(light at top to right of power.


Try these steps:

1. Remove battery and unplug AC adapter
2. Press power on button for 30 seconds or so (one min is also too)
3. Attach battery and plug into wall
4. Power "ON" as normal

If you are still getting the "Z" and a black screen then I would have the video card or hard drive looked at and replaced. Start with the video card and then look at the hard drive

Cannot power on my compac presario sr1130nx


Well from what you have explained to me it sounds like what happened when you lost power is that it fried your power supply so what you need to do is buy a new one and that will fix that issue however it might have also fried your hard drive as well but you won't know until you boot up your computer again.

Black Monitor


Try taking out your battery and leaving it out for 5 minutes.  During boot press F2 to access BIOS to check your default video out source is LCD.  Also try Fn+F5 to change the modes of video after you think windows is all the way booted up.  Does it POST?  When booting does the drives make noise then hear a beep.  If it beeps it passed Power On Self Test.
