Take out the battery
remove the power lead
press and hold the power button about 20 seconds
replace power lead only
try and turn on
if this works - then you can replace your battery as per normal

Hi! Having some trouble with a friends laptop here. I have it on AC power and the battery is now charged (middle light has changed from amber to blue). So when I push the power button, the top light...


Hi.

Try unplugging AC power lead and then take out the laptops battery, plug the AC power lead back in and try turning it on, see what happens. If the laptop turns on then there is a problem with the battery.

Good luck and let me know how you get on.



Regards.

My laptop has a green screen on start up


Green Screen? Never heard of that, normally its a Blue Screen if there is a problem.

Give us more details on what happens when you hit the power button. Does anything appear on the screen? Do the laptop try to boot? Any lights, beeps, fans running, hard drive spinning?

Toshiba A135-S4527 starts to power up then shuts down.


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

My laptop won't boot up. I was getting frustrated with it because a window saying my internet wasn't working so I gave it a "love tap" on the left side below the keyboard and suddenly the screen...


You have apparently killed your system.
I suggested that you get a screw-driver and take it apart in order to see if you've knocked an connector loose or cracked a component.
If you're not good with a screw-driver, you'll have to take it in for service to have the damaged part replaced.

HP Pavillion dv9700 won't power up


Try removing the battery and using only power cord to turn the laptop on. If that fails, try turning it on without power cord, just on battery.

If none of those work, then most probable cause of your problem is motherboard. Hopefuly you are either under manufacturer warranty or you have extended warranty with your vendor where you've purchased the laptop.

If your laptop turns on on power cord, but without battery, then battery is the problem. Also, if laptop turns on when it's only on battery but it doesn't when you plug ac cord in it, then the adapter is the problem.
