It is a combination of key known as "Function" (Fn, for short). You have to press it and hold while pressing other keys showing the blue letters on it. The most common use is to make a virtual Numerical Keypad on laptops, so you can perform calculations. To be back to normal mode, you need to press FN+F8 (or the key with the Calculator icon).

  • Remove all power (adapter power Cord and Battery (for laptops))
  • Hold down the ON button for 30secs (dispersing internal voltage)
  • Plug the power cord in only (ie leave battery out, for the moment)
  • Turn on
Check your power adapter. Plug it in to a known good power receptacle. See if the power adapter has any lights that light up to make sure it is getting power.
Take the battery out of the laptop and just only plug in the power adapter.
Do any lights on the laptop light up when you power it on? Does it beep?Does it make a sound? Is where you plug your power adapter to your laptop loose or broken?

if no sound or light the its either power adapter , dc jack or cable, or system board .

Please note, it is also a good measure to re seat the memory.
You may need to locate your disassembly guide

The simplest way is to fully re-format the Hard Drive. Boot to any Windows installation CD or DVD, and when the option comes up, choose to install a new copy of Windows, and follow delete existing partitions and re-format HD options. For extra security, don't select "fast format". End this dummy installation after this formatting procedure. The most secure method for data deletion however is a bit more physical. Remove the hard drive and smash it with a hammer! You'll know the drive is well and truly trashed when you can here bits clanging around in the drive casing when you shake it.

The problem you described, is related to the inverter board.
There's a little board, that take care of lights on the monitor. You must replace the inverter board to solve the problem.

Here you have an image, of an inverter board.


Good luck, and be safe!
Inverter boards, it's dangerouse to replace yourself if you don't know what you are doing. High-Voltage inside :)

You can try to open your notebook, and take the internal battery off, to reset your BIOS. You must do that without charger or battery pluged in to the computer.

Maybe the problem is not the charger.It can be the battery or the circle input from your laptop broken
