I believe that the syptoms you are experiencing include the power button lighting up during start up and the fan cycling for 5 seconds, but no other activity. There may or may not be a series of audible "beeps". A CD will come up to speed, but will not load. I have had this happen three times with my M35X-S111 due to it not being able to recognize the RAM. The first two times, I re-seated the RAM and it successfully booted. The third time, I reseated the RAM 50+ times with it only successfully booting once. The slot that holds the RAM cards does make a good electrical contact with the cards. Since the RAM holder is integral to a card, you cannot replace it with a "generic" holder, instead, you have to replace the entire card. I discarded my Toshiba after that third failure.

Sounds as though your ac adapter is bad.But it could also be the power jack where the ac adapter plugs in also.

No signs of power on my gateway mt3705


The power supply provides only 48V (or what ever is listed on the back) but the computer breaks out +12 -12 +5 -5 etc and if that power regulator is damaged it will not come on.
Remove the battery and unplug, hold the power button on for 2-3 minutes, plug in ONLY the power cord and press the power button.
Most likely if you don't get any text on the screen the internal power regulator/converter is damaged.

Power Light on but screen black


Try powering up with no battery connected. If that works then the battery may be faulty or too old.

Laptop wont turn on philips freevents x51


The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

Just Remember, A Laptops life expectancy is 3 years, after that you are treading on thin ice keeping Important Documents on it.

Wont come on!


Starting with the easy stuff: Try plugging in the power cord, but not the battery.
If that works, your battery is either dead, or the circuit for it is shorted out.
Are there any signs of life? When you press the power button, do you hear any fans? do see any lights?
Does the screen flicker? Your RAM may be dead if it does.

This is a very useful post from LapTopReapir-101

Laptop is DEAD. How do your troubleshoot the problem?

In this post I’ll explain how to troubleshoot a dead laptop and find the problem. The following troubleshooting tips are not model and brand specific, they should work for most laptops.
Let’s take a look at two different scenarios.
Example 1. The laptop is absolutely dead.
When you plug in the power adapter and press on the power button, there is no signs of life at all. The laptop will not make usual noises, LEDs will not light up, the fan will not spin, the screen is blank and black, etc… In short, the laptop is dead.
What you can do in this case?...
