    When I press the power button on my laptop the green light comes on and I feel the hard drive spin up that’s it. I can’t boot into safe mode, or get to the BIOs nothing on the screen I tried an external monitor that didn’t work

    I have exactly the same problem.
    I think a135 has a defect on its mainboard.

    There are some trouble that started with:
    1. All 4 USB ports won't work. There's a note that says USB unrecognized..bla bla bla..
    2. One day I started the a135, BIOS asked for a password. I have never ever put any password on BIOS. But yet it asked for a password??
    3. One terrible day..it went pitch black..no nothing..dead.
    There's only a green light on the power switch.
    BIOS won't start, HDD won't start..

    This laptop really put me in a lot of trouble.

    I've asked the repair shop to fix my a135..but there's only 1 solution..
    "Change the mainboard"..
    And I said.."What the %*&^&%..."
    It cost me USD 350.

My suggection is that the element has gone so it would be cheaper for you to take it to the shop for repair.

My Acer Chromebook 13 will not power on or charge so can anyone help me with my problem?


try this: remove battery, remove power cable, push and hold down the power button for 1 m (over 60s) do not short time. release the button, insert the power cable. wait 10s then push and hold power button till you see any lite flash release and see if you boot.
some time the static is built and that causes failure to start.
above should clean any static and allow reset of power adapter to function. if yes,. then once you shut down . insert the batter and ;et it charge for 3 mins.. then try to start.

I switch the power on power light comes on fan starts as if to boot then nothing, no screen and no keyboard lights


Does BIOS messages appear, or is the screen absolutely black?
If you see BIOS messages and then black screen, you should go to BIOS and choose your boot devices correctly. If there is no screen do the following tip:
1) Turn off the laptop.
2) remove the battery.
3) click and hold power button for about 30 seconds to discharge the circuit from motherboard.
4) then install the battery again
5) and click power button.

See what happens. In many cases it helps.
If there is still black screen, you should check your laptops RAM. In many cases removing and then installing back the RAM helps.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Screen wont come on, on my Toshiba laptop computer


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black. Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel.

Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.
Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on.

If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.

If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.

If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced. Hope this helps.

When i turn it on it wont show desk top it stays on a black screen


Does your laptop have its lights on the keyboard even if your screen is black? If it is , try to remove the cables and battery of the laptop. Press and hold the power button for 8 seconds. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the laptop. Turn on the laptop, and if there is no light on screen & keyboard, it means that the power supply or the motherboard has trouble. That is the time to contact Dell support for possible repair or replacement. Otherwise if the keyboard has lights but the screen is still black, that would be a video card problem since the LCD screen is not a separate entity. Just make sure if it has the power button on the screen, it is turned on. That instance would need a video card replacement...

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

My Vostro 1500 will not turn on anymore...help please!


Reset/replace the Ram/memory. Sometimes faulty and failing ram can keep a computer from booting up. If you have 2 sticks, take one out and then try to boot, then try with just the other stick. The flashing caps lock icon means a general failure, though it is most commonly associated with the motherboard.
