You gotta trouble shoot. Take the battery and charge it on a friends computer or go to the Apple store and have them test it. If the battery is good, then your next step is the charger. Do the same thing with it-take it to the Apple store and have them test it or test it on your friends laptop. If the charger is good then the next culprit is the computer. Put a working known good battery in the computer and see if it turns on. If no, take the battery out and just plug in a good working known charger and see if the computer turns on that way. If still nothing, then you have to take the computer in to the Apple dorks and pay their hefty fee and have them fix it.

Unplug the battery and the power cord. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug back in the battery and power cord. Try powering on the laptop. If it powers on you are good to go. If not try contacting Lenovo support.

Lap top will not turn on


There are a couple of things you can try. First let's make sure the battery has power. On the battery there is a little white button next to some LED lights. Press the button if you get no LED lights (they should be green) you have no power, if you get one fast blinking LED you have no power. Plug in your power suuply and make sure the green/orange light comes on on the adapter right where it attaches to the laptop. If you need to you can try a different power adapter if you can find on available from a friend or a store. Assuming you have power we could try reseting the SMC. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to make sure the power on the laptop is off. Unplug the power cord and using a coin or key to turn the circular lock, remove the battery from the laptop. Next with the battery out and the power unplugged press and hold the power button for 5 seconds then release. Replace the battery and lock into place. Plug in the power cord. Wait 5 minutes and then try to power the laptop on with the power button again. Hopefully this helps.

Hi: My Aspire 4710Z was not shutting down properly. I pulled out the battery to turn it of. Now, when I put back the battery after few hours, there is no power in my Lap top. Screen is black and now...


Remove the battery and the AC adapter from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go
Plug the AC adapter only back into the laptop
Now press the power button on the laptop
If it now boots properly shut down the laptop and insert the battery
Now push the power button again
If it now fails you may have a bad battery

My Apple mac book pro will not boot up. I have a grey screen. I've taken out the battery held doen the on button for 5 seconds and re connected it nut I've still got a grey screen. Help


The grey screen is the bios of your laptop is booting, this is freezing for some reason.
Do 3 things.
Try holding power button down for longer at least 10-20 seconds.
do a PRAM reset, apple symbol, alt P & R keys all held on boot up.
Do a smc reset.
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it's connected.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
  5. Release the power button.
  6. Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
  7. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Took my hard drive out of my pc lap top because the mother board is fried and i bought the aluratek hard drive cover with usb connecter and mac compatible hooked it up to my mac lap top to transfer files...


The smart bit is irrelevant but you should be able to transfer your files off it OK.
I don't know how mac familiar you are but all you have to do normally is plug the drive in to a convenient USB port and plug in some power. (Some drive cases that don't have external power need to plug in to the computer with a special lead that has 2 USB clugs on one end.)
After 5-10 seconds the drive should pop up on the desktop, you can then open it and copy stuff off.
Where does this pop-up come from as I've not experienced one in years of Mac support.
