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. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. 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.

My Asus A3H laptop will no longer work on battery power - I have put in a new battery and it will still no longer work on battery powr.


Battery contact points might have gone faulty that is why it won't detect the battery connected into it.

Laptop Won't Turn On (Toshiba Satellite U205-S5057)


Try a new power adapter before you try the other expensive tests and repairs. The adapters are notorium about failing after being used continuously . If you can check the outgoing voltage at the tip where it fits into the DC jack on the laptop would be good. Match the output to the rated voltage needed to peoperly power the laptop.

Eee pc 701 doesnt turn on


Make sure no external devices are plugged in.
If it's still under warranty you will have to return it.
Or take to an Asus support center as it seems to be a hardware problem.
