Computer will not turn on

Occasionally, I try to turn on my computer and the power light comes on for about one second then turns off and and the computer will not start. It does this on AC power and battery power. The next day I try it again and it starts normally.

This could indicate a bad battery, or bad memory chip. Try starting without the battery. If this doesn't work, then try takeing one or the other memory chips out. If the problem persists, then it may lie within the power management system on the motherboard.

My computer wont boot up the fan and light turn on for a second then goes right off....


With the little bit of information presented, it appears that this is possible a power supply problem. One thing you can try is to unplug the power adapter from the laptop, remove the battery, then plug the power adapter back into the laptop. Then try to turn it on. If everything comes up normally, then the problem points, potentially, to the battery.
Hope this helps!

Power light shuts off after only 3 seconds


Disconnect the AC adaptor from the laptop and remove the Battery pack from the Battery bay. Then, remove the RAM module and reinstall it after cleaning the RAM slot. Next, connect the AC adaptor to the laptop then try turning it ON. Please make sure that the AC adaptor is connected to a functional wall outlet. If the laptop still doesn't turn ON then you may try cleaning the Battery bay and the metal contacts in the battery compartment then insert the battery and try turning ON the laptop. If the laptop still doesn't turn ON then the issue is with the power supply unit.

DV8309 power up problem: blue lights on for few seconds then off


The inverter inside the lcd panel is most likely your problem. Try removing the whole lcd screen from the laptop if you are capable and run it with the external screen to confirm. leave the lcd switch off (this lcd switch above the power button turns the lcd inverter on and off)

Aspire One won't turn on because it is out of power.


I dont have that much experience with Acers, but one thing I do know is that when laptop batteries are really drained [especially if that happens when applications were running] the system goes into this unconscious state and only power up once the system has enough battery power. However, that doesnt imply that the problem is always battery related. sometimes harddisks 'lock' and refuse to come out of that state until you do something like hold down the power button for like 10 seconds' or even manually remove the CMOS battery located on the motherboard

My hp laptop will not boot up


Check the power supply for power. Replace if necessary. Also check the motherboard for proper operation. If no fans come on or only come on for a few seconds then you have a bad motherboard

Can't Turn Computer On


I understand that your Notebook is not turning on.

That's unfortunate.

However, try to perform the following steps.

= Power Drain =

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and Battery.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If the issue persists, I am afraid that you need to repair your Notebook.

Thanks
