1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Won;t start red blinking light is on checked staarter relay and fuse #3 they were good help me please i need my car


Red blinking light , anti-theft system ! Your best bet is take it to the dealer (tow) . This starting system is controlled by a computer , be it a BCM - body control module or the PCM powertrain control module . Very complicated messaging between the BCM an PCM on CCD serial data bus Takes place . You need a factory scan tool to diagnose these type problems .

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


Done cars have a kill switch if they are low on oil. Check your oil. If the oil is good, it may be the ignition switch.

06 trailblazer trouble with anti theft system, I think, starts right up then other times the anti theft light comes on and it won't start. can try it 2-4 hours later and it starts right up????


The first thing to do get it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Not at auto zone or any other parts store , you want to have full scan of all the modules on the car. Don't know how much you know about automotive electronics , computer controlled systems etc.... Your vehicle has at least 10 modules (computers ) on board , there all talk to each other on a serial data network . C.A.N - controller area network . Or in the case of GM it has it's own . GMLAN -
How to Diagnose Controller Area Network CAN When you turn that ignition switch to start it is an input to the computer ,be it the PCM or BCM ..

Washer won't start. Power is on, pressed power, then pressed permanent press, then water temp, then start. There is a red light on spin cycle and it just beeps and doesn't start.


Hi - if that red led light comes on as you press start - then the display module is faulty - however it's not always the case - often its the motor controller module thats faulty..

Your call - display module first and hope it works or controller.

The manufacturers recommended procedure is to replace the display module (primary) if it still doesnt work then replace the control module (secondary).

Cheers

My 1998 jeep cheorkee engine turns but won't crank, could it be the computer or what?


it's highly unlikely, there are only two things that can make this happen, not getting fuel (fuel pump failure, fuel pump regulator) or not getting ignition (bad coils, ignition module failure, bad distributor, distributor cap, rotor)

95 town car won't start


When the 1995 Towncar turns over but won't start or there is no spark you need to look to see if the O/D light is on once you turn the key on. If that light is on the Power control module has rec'd a code from the transmission that there is a O/D fault and the car won't start until that light is off. If you unhook your battery, red post first and neg next and wait at least 10 mins. and reattach the posts neg first and then the red post next the computer will reset and the light will turn off and the car will usually start. If not repeat the procedure. This is an O/D button or O/D switch problem when the light is on.
