Hello, Most Laptops will still turn on as long as there connection through the battery to the computer. I have had a few laptops with 100% dead batteries that still work. Can you hear the fans inside spinning? Does the bottom heat up? We are trying to determine if the problem lies within the hardware or software. That should put you a few steps closer to fixing the problems!

Best Wishes and Good Luck!

    Since the fans turn on and the bottom heats up I would assume that the power supply, fans, and processor are still good, What Do you see on the screen? Is it black screen or blue screen? Anything flicker? Black screen could mean, other hardware issue, possible broken screen connection, blue screen could mean, dead hard-drive, Os failure, among a few other things. Hope this helps!

    Best Wishes and Good Luck!

What's your question? my proline laptop is not showing up the screen but it does show that its charging but doesn't show up the screen


That could be many problems. what your telling me is that u see the charge light when u charge it but when you turn it on nothing happens? this could be a number of things. I would hook up a monitor and see if anything shows up on the monitor if the laptop boots. if something does show up then its your laptop display cables that are bad.
Try This
--> First turn your computer off by pressing and holding down the start button. Next unplug the computer and then remove the battery. Press and hold down the start button for about 60 seconds. Release the button and plug in the computer. Press the start button and the display should return. Replace the battery. If this does not work, try it again up to four times. No results usually indicates a bad mother board. Hope this helps.

My computer says it is charging but as soon as i hit the power button it stops charging and does nothing even happens


Have you tried running the computer with just the AC plugged in and not with the battery? If not try that. It could be the battery is going out. I had a similar issue once. If that doesn't work it might be the power supply / powercord or it could be the motherboard.

My HP Pavilion dv9740us Notebook PC dosent start the screen is black


Doesn't start as in nothing happens when you hit the power button? Or are you saying the Desktop is black, but it seems like windows started and went through the boot process?

If nothing happens when you hit the power button:
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

MODEL LT2016U WONT BOOT UP


Is it trying to boot up or is it doing absolutely nothing when you plug in the power cord and hit the power button?

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

My Acer Aspire 6530-5753 laptop stopped charging the battery even though the power supply light was on--it's an aftermarket charger from Radio Shjack. The battery ran dead and it wouldn't run on...


This is not the motherboard. The batteries in laptops have electronic sensors in them. When they reach the end of life, they stop the computer from turning on. Once that happens it wont power on with the battery in or out. Batteries are not that expensive. Only about 25 dollars.
