I have had my laptop now for round about 2 plus years. It was cheap and probably one of the last of that kind being made. It is a Dell. I love it, it worked great, and I have tons of stuff on it I want to keep.
The situation is that it wont turn on. I think its not charging. AT ALL... and now its dead. I dont want to get a new laptop if the fix is easy,i love it and its always been working well for me.
Does anyone know what is wrong? if so, is it an easy fix.... if not .... how can i get my stuff off and on to my new one, if i so purchase one.

Re: Laptop wont turn on anymore.
Your battery might be dead and it might cause problem to boot.
Remove battery, insert A/C adoptor and try to boot normally, if success then you should change your battery and all will be fine. If no success then try next step.
Remove battery, remove A/C adoptor. Press and hold power button abt 10 seconds then insert A/C adoptor holding the power button on. Keep holding for 30-45 seconds. If still no success then have a tour to the service centre.

What kind of laptop (make and model) and what kind of TV (make and model) plus, the age of each of them. You'll probably have the most problems with the TV. If it isn't setup to accept a HDMI, USB, or network cable you're out of luck. The connection types on the TV will tell you the most. And not all TV are the same. If the TV is over 7 years old, it's probably not going to work.
It's is a common problem with cheap Acer laptops around 1-2 years old ( maybe longer) you may find sometimes it does turn on very rarely. You could try taking the battery out overnight to let the laptop fully discharge. You may find this fixes it, but probably temporarily. Failing the above check the warranty and contact Acer. This is a motherboard fault so is difficult to repair.
It sounds like the battery might be faulty. And you may need to get a replacement. Check out your local batteries plus store. www.batteriesplus.com.
Also something to check into is the laptop manufacturer may have a recall on the battery pack for your laptop. Over the past 5 or so years there's been a lot of recalls on them. Virtually all manufacturers were affected. If your laptop battery is part of the recall, you may be entitled to a free replacement. It's worth a shot.
it sounds like your ac adapter has burned out and won't charge anymore. That's very common... that's why they are so cheap on ebay. Either that or your power plug on the motherboard is cracked or loose at the motherboard (2nd most common) and last bad motherboard (don't assume this unless last resort.)
Connect an external monitor to your laptop. Start your laptop and use Fn+F5 buttons (or those appropiate to your model) to send the video signal out to the external monitor. If you do not get any image on the external monitor it means that most probably the mainboard is damaged (video card or even more). Expensive to fix or replace. Have it checked by a professional.
at two years old it is basically exctinct already and the costs of laptops coming down so rapidly you can probably go on craigslist or ebay and find a cheap laptop that is working and ready to be portable. you can also try and sell the toshiba online for parts
i would try plugging in an external keyboard. if you don't have one laying around, you should be able to find one pretty cheap. i've seen basic keyboards for $5 or $10 bucks. just make sure that you get one with the proper connector for your computer. (ps/2, the round one, or usb). If the external keyboard works, then you've got an issue with your internal keyboard and will probably need to have it serviced.
i had a similar problem with a zanussi machine
a cheap bracelet got washed with some clothes and it found its way into the drum housing jamming the drum.
it may have been cheap to fix, but i just got rid of it cos it was 4 years old anyway
i now have a zanussi ZWF1231W just past its 1 wear warranty that has just died completely except for an "on indicator light"
the store inform me that i will have to pay the zanussi engineer a Euro 90 call out charge, plus labour costs, plus parts if needed.
im a little bit disappointed with zanussi to say the least
