EMachine won't start

Won't turn on, at all. It's a model M6810. I'm not sure how old it is, but it was working at least 5 months ago. Then all of a sudden it wouldn't start up. It's fully charged, and the charger light comes on. I've tried researching it but nothings turned up. Is there some keyboard combination I can hold while pressing the power button? Or do I need to replace something?
I don't think there was a virus or the like on it because the laptop was used for business and internet wasn't needed. I'm clueless as to whats wrong.

You might try to bring it up after removing the battery. I've seen a bad battery cause problems like this.

Hi,
With the problem that you have described it looks like the problem could be with the motherboard. As the charger light is coming on the system is getting power ,but there is a problem distributing it.
Try removing the parts like the DVD drive, harddrive and the memory from the system and then powering on the system .If it powers one of these components are causing the failure , otherwise its the motherboard.The follwing link gives you the user manual for your machine , go to the troubleshooting section for more details

Another possible cause is your RAM has failed.
At start up try pressing the delete or F1 buttons to access the laptops setup

If you can't hear the usual whirring sound when you try to press the power button, it is probable that your processor has died on you. It may also be that the battery cells are due for replacing. The LED lights may turn on just fine when in fact your batteries are in trouble.

But more information on your problem may help.

You tried it in neutral but did you take it out of park and force it back into park? Just a suggestion since sometimes the switch that tells it that it is in park needs a bit of a nudge sometimes.

Model 917.370410 won't start


Sounds to me like this model is a POS. I also have this same model, purchased last August have used only 5 or 6 times , has the same symptoms: hard pull, puff of smoke, won't run , etc. Even brought this to an authorized dealer to get it to run, but then it only ran a couple more times, dead again. Does anyone know of any recalls fro this lemon? I can appreciate everyone troubleshooting , but you shouldn't have to tear apart a 5 month old lawnmower which will only result in your warranty being voided.
