    No lights come on, the only other information that might help you is that there is a light on the power adapter. When I plug in in the laptop it starts blinking , if its unplugged from the laptop is it steady green. I have installed a new battery but no luck so far. Thanks for your help

This sounds like a tricky one. If you plug everything in and turn it on at the mains do any lights on the laptop come on? Does it do anything at all when you turn it on?
If you get back to me I can proceed to help you further.
Good luck!

    I'm really sorry but I'm stumped here. The battery shouldn't be a problem so long as the laptop is plugged in. The light coming on on the power supply shows that it is working so I'm guessing that there is a problem with the laptop itself - you've probably already worked that one out!

    I'm guessing that it's short circuiting, but my knowledge of the physical laptop is limited. The one thing I can advise is that you do not continue trying to get the laptop to work as it is as this may cause further damage.

    A problem like this can't really be solved remotely as there are many things that could be causing the problem. I know this isn't much help but I would suggest taking it to a shop or contacting the manufacturer. You may still at least be able to claim on the warranty!

    Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

Dell inspiron mini wont start when pressing the start button the optical mouse light up laptop wont start I tried the static charge but nothing happens pls help,

If the computer is under warranty you should take it to Dell. If not you can try removing the battery and try to turn it on. If that does not work then you might have to open it up and remove hard drive and memories to see if that helps turning on. My best advice is take it to a service center.

Simple fix for dead laptop that wont power up when you depress the ON button

The simplest check you can do on a laptop that wont turn on is to remove the battery and try again with just the power lead.

If the laptop will turn on OK then you have a faulty battery that is causing the failure. This is not a test that will fix all dead laptops but it is a great starting point if this works then all you need do is order a new battery these are about £20-£50 depending upon make and model.

Why wont dell i15rv-9762blk wont turn on

Obviously there are no error messages, so it isn't a simple failure.
Several reasons:
1. Dead or damaged battery - look for laptop battery error light or replace battery (borrow a working battery to test)
2. Dead or damaged Power Supply- look for power-on light to confirm operation. Replace PS if dead. (Borrow?)
3. System board failure. No lights/errors messages etc. Place warranty claim.

Easynote r1004 wont power on

The battery is too low and the power supply can't charge the battery and also power the laptop at the same time.

Try this:
1. Remove the battery from the laptop
2. Plug in the power cord and turn ON the laptop.
3. It should work ok.
4. After the laptop is "stable" (what 5 minutes?), you can put the battery back into the laptop while it is ON.
5. Leave the laptop ON so the battery can get charged.
6. Lower / close the lid so that the screen will turn OFFand not take up power from recharging the battery.

If this doesn't work for you, try these steps again, maybe wait a few minutes between steps.

This WILL work!

Hope this helps!

My laptop wont start. it tries, goes dead, powers

1. Remove the battery
2. Use only the power supply.
3. After the computer starts, put battery back in.
Power supply can't handle low battery & computer start up at the same time.
