First, there is a problem that is why the laptop is not coming on.
What you should do is try to remove the battery and inserting it back in, then try to turn it in again.
If it does the same, then try to open up the laptop, remove the battery, then the hard disk and other components in the unit, then you fix them back and make sure they are properly seated. Then you reassemble it back together and then turn it on.

If it still does not come on, then you will have to charge it properly then turn on, this time, i beleive it should come on.

Take care

I cannot get my Asus U52F laptop to turn on.

Unplug from AC, remove battery, plug into AC , boot normally.

Product does not boot.nothing shows when i try to boot the product.

Make sure that the AC adapter is actually putting out voltage (and the appropriate amount) by connecting the AC adapter to a compatible and known working laptop, or by using a voltage meter. If the AC adapter is good, then make are any lights coming on when you try to turn on the computer? If so, make sure that the computer isn't just sending its video signal out of the port used to connect to an external monitor. Test this by connecting an external monitor or by pressing the fn key and whichever F key represents the toggle to external monitor function. If you are on Windows 7, press the windows key and the p key at the same time. Then, after letting go of both of those keys, use the left-arrow key and then hit enter.If there are no lights at all when you press power, remove the battery, make sure that the AC adapter is plugged in, and then try to turn it on. Sometimes a battery can be so bad that it prevents the AC adapter from properly powering the laptop at all.If none of this works, sounds like you have a hardware failure inside the laptop (could be the video adapter, the power button, or some other motherboard component).

My compaq presario v3500 wont turn on again. i was using it, watching movie then it suddenly shutdown. my battery is fully charge and the charger was connected. so i try to turn it on and it wont start....

Remove the Battery and press power on for 1-2 minutes with out AC power .
Please turn on the laptop with only AC POWER (without battery ). Check it. it may turn on your laptop.

If display ok, then insert battery and use it...

My toshiba satellite pro 6100 will not turn on. The battery light and power light turns green but it will not turn on.sometimes it will on and hang on toshiba logo and if it check it will just off

There's a couple of things you can try here. First I would connect the laptop to an external monitor. If that works, then check to make sure that it is set to internal screen usage by pressing the function key and holding it while pressing the f5 key. If this works then problem solved. However if you get an external screen but the laptop screen still does not turn on then the problem is internal to the laptop you need to get a tech to look at it.

Next, if the above procedure does not produce any results, take off the battery, take off the memory, press the power key a couple of times, replace the ram and the plug in the ac adapter and see if it works. Replace the battery and see if it works. If it works without the battery and not with it then your problem is your battery.

Since you are getting the battery and power lights to turn on, I doubt that it would be your dc jack.

Blue power cord light is on, but computer does not power up or charge battery.

you can try the following:
  • Remove the battery and connect just the AC adapter and try to boot up. If it works then install the battery, if not
  • Remove the battery and AC and press the Power button for 30 sec
  • Under the netbook, ( when turned upside down) on the right-side near the windows key sticker you will see small hole use a pin to press this button. This will reset your HW.
First 2 solutions worked for me. I had issue with my battery calibration. After leaving it 24h on the AC all back to normal.
Hope it helps

8. if it blinks amber then remove all CRUs such as dvd drive, memory, hard drive and wireless cards. put them back one at a time. make sure you turn off laptop when putting removed hardware. this will check and isolate which causing the power led to blink.
9. if the power led stays on then turn it off again then wait a couple of seconds then press and hold on Fn key then press power button. wait for about 5 minutes while the power led is steady on, until you hear beeps once you hear beeps it means that LCD has problems. try then connecting laptop to an external monitor if it shows display there. press on Fn + F8 to toggle the display from LCD laptop to the ext monitor. if no display replace the motherboard. if it has display replace LCD.

DELL Precision M65- cannot turn on. Even take off batt then turn ON, or using adaptor without battery still cannot turn ON. The LED light is ON but no visual/screen. Please help. Many thanks...

Verify the AC power adapter displays a solid green or blue light. Older Latitude™ C Series laptop computer AC adapters may not have a light.
Run the diagnostics on the system as follows , connect both the battery and the Ac adapter before running the diagnostics

  1. Ensure the system is powered off.
  2. Remove all external peripherals.
  3. Press and hold the <Fn> key on the keyboard.
  4. Continue to hold the <Fn> key while pressing the power button.
  5. Release both buttons.
  6. Note which lock LEDs are lit (lock LEDS are next to the power button)
And proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below

Thanks for using Fixya

Can't get laptop to turn on. Battery pack lights show full charge, power cord is plugged in. No indicator lights illuminating at all, wondering if it is my motherboard. Compaq Presario 2200 laptop.

very first thing u have do is if u have any other laptop try and connect the aac adaptor with that laptop and also try the battery if it is working with the other laptop that means the motherboard of the computer has gone bad u need to replace it and what also u can try is disconnect the ac adaptor and take out the battery from the laptop and the without ac adaptor and the battery press and hold down the power button for one minute and then connect the ac adaptor and put the battery back in and then try and turn on the computer and also what u can do is shut down the computer first and then just hit the power butoon once only to turn it on and then keep tapping f8 key on the keyboard and it will take u to windows advance options and select safe mode with networking and then try if it turns on to the windows screen or not......and if it doesnt turn ono then definately replace the motherboard...good luck....

Will not boot up or turn on though it is getting power

The Charger could be bad, Try replacing that, or let charge, then try to turn on. The laptop might not boot with AC power. kinda stupid but maybe. If that doesn't work, the AC adapter is bad.
