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.

Remove the main battery and press power, sometimes this will solve the problem. If not, remove one stick of ram and power on, if not remove the second one and replace the first and try again. If no result it is probably a motherboard issue.

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

My compaq CQ 61-420 US notebook won't turn on It was on and we left the room for a few minutes and came back in and it was off and won't come back on the 3 lights in the bottum left flash 3 times...

Greetings! Whenever you're dealing with a laptop computer that does not power up the first thing you want to do is disconnect the AC adapter from the laptop.The next step is to remove the battery from the laptop. Then reinsert the battery and reconnect the AC adapter. Press the power switch at this point and see if the laptop will power up normally.

Laptops are also prone to overheating. If the laptop powers up after it has cooled down and then fails again you may be dealing with an overheating issue. Try taking a standard can of compressed air and blowing out the ducts that supply fair to the cooling fan, as well as blowing off any "dust bunnies" or visible debris that have accumulated on the cooling fan itself.

Also make sure that the laptop is not sitting in an orientation that impedes the airflow to the cooling fan.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power

Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

My charge light constantly flashes orange and my C600 won't turn on at all. I hold the power button and all the lights turn off. I got nothing. Just a blankscreen.

When you say charge light, was that the battery led light that you were referring to or the power button?

If it is the battery led light, try this:
Try to power on your laptop without the battery in your laptop.
take out the battery and just use the ac adapter, if it works fine then there could be a problem with your battery.

If is the power button that is flashing orange, then try to power cycle laptop.
turn off laptop.
take out the battery and the ac adapter.
then while those are out, you hold down power button for atleast 10-15 seconds.
put back the power source and check the led again.
