You have not specified if some lights come on or not. whether there is any sign of life when you power it on. Anyway the reasons are as under:-

  1. It could be a dead battery, for which you can plug it in and then power on.
  2. It could be a bad power on switch, for which you have to replace it with a good one.
  3. It could be bad connection between the battery and the motherboard.
  4. If some lights do come on when you power it on but the laptop does not, then it could be bad RAM.
  5. Or a bad BIOS. Which does not allow the HDD to take over and boot the laptop.
  6. Or a burnt/bad motherboard
There are so many reasons for your laptop to Not boot. A single one or a combination of these reasons. You may even have to open up the back cover and then inspect.

On my AAO a fuse on the motherboard was blown, see:
http://www.linurs.org/linux/aao/batteries.html
There are actually two fuses, one for the battery and one for the power socket. If it is completely dead then the fuse on the power socket is probably gone. Unfortunately they are SMD fuses and therefore not easy available and replaceable.

How can I tell if a power surge hit my laptop and ruined it? I can't even get it to boot up


It could either be that the motherboard is fried or the Hard drive has just gotten slightly corrupted. If you have the Windows install disk that came with it you could boot that up and then go into repair mode (press R) and then run "chkdsk /r" this would fix a hard drive issue. However if your laptop will not turn on at all when you press the power button then it is likely dead.

Set dead


Hello,
Did you plug your AC adapter in and then try to turn it on? It may be that your battery ran out of power. Try to plug your AC adapter into your laptop, wait about 2 minutes for the battery to charge, then turn on your laptop. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace your battery. The battery on that laptop is fairly cheap, ranging in price from $10 used to $60 new. If that doesn't work, your power button may need to be fixed. You then need to have it fixed by a reputable computer repair store.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Acer travelmate 8472 not switching on


Take out the battery and hook up the AC Adapter to it. Hook up the adapter to a working outlet. If the laptop still doesn't turn on then try another working AC Adapter. If the laptop doesn't turn on at this point then that means the motheboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

My laptop won't turn on, and the charger doesn't seem to be doing anything. even when plugged in, it won't start. ideas?


You've to replace the ac adapter, if it's brick doesn't get warm or LED does not glow on Power Jack on the laptop. offcourse, check with the wall different sockets

power jack can also be loose. so jiggle the cable to find out.

if notebook is getting power, you can remove the battery, ac adapter, hold and keeep pressing poer button for a minute, then, turn it on.

finally, you can take out hdd and ram, put them back again and turn on the laptop. hope it will help

I turned on my labtop after repalcing the power inverter and the screen is still dark


Hi brylindo.
Try hooking your laptop to an external monitor...if the picture comes on then it is an lcd screen problem...if it doesn't come on then re-down load your drivers and see if that solves the problem...if it still doesn't work then you may have a problem with the laptop electronics.
Please take time to rate me

Cant connect Verizon Wireless Router


Hi! Try to restart your router. If it doesn't work, try to restart your computer. If it still doesn't work, make sure that you don't have a power on/off for wireless on your laptop. If you have that button, turn it on/off and wait to see for a reaction from the laptop. If nothing happens, try to check the laptop's conectivity to other wireless devices. I hope this will work! Have a nice day!
