Try starting it without the battery. sometimes a battery can develop a dead short and cause this. Also check the power supply with an ohm meter, it's possible the supply is the problem. If these don't work, it's likely the motherboard, and you will need to have it diagnosed by a tech.

Vostro 1400 won't turn on


I doubt there is battery problem, have you tried switching on laptop without battery and connecting through the laptop charger? most probable your battery is not taking the charge. so suggest you to disconnect the battery and try using laptop with charger then you'll find the problem.

Hi, my laptop wont turn on, can u help me?


Sure--if it doesn't turn on, assuming that when you push the power switch absolutely nothing happens, then your battery may be dead. If your battery is dead, you have to plug it into your power adapter. If that doesn't help, make sure there is the correct voltage coming out of the power adapter. Should be 18-19 volts.
If you are actually getting power to the computer and when you push the on/off button nothing happens, try this: unplug the power adapter. Remove the battery. After about 30 seconds hook it up again. Try it with the battery in and the battery out.

If you still cannot get it to turn on, then most likely the CD-in jack is bad or the motherboard is bad.

Hp nc4200 won`t start


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Nothing happens when I open the think pad


i believed there is a switch for power on and off on the side of the laptop with symbol (I/0)..make sure your laptop is plug in to your power source with the power brick(maybe there's no more juice in the battery)

My laptop acer aspire 3100 crashed. it was fine before i turned the laptop off, but when I tried to turn it on again it got stuck starting windows up, I have Vista. I waited for some time but after 30 min....


Hello rijotomas,
First you can try to pull the battery out and unplug the power adapter for a minute. Then plug the laptop back in without the battery. Then try to turn it back on.

Compaq Presario 700 Series Laptop wont turn on


Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.

Dell Inspiron 9200 stopped working does not power on


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?...
