Maybe you have a faulty Power Cord try replacing that first. Secondly check your powersupply's Fan if its turning. Lastly check your power button maybe its defective.

The laptop wont turn on. i have unpluged it, taken out the battery then replace it after 60 sec. tried to turn it on and it didnt work. i plugged it back in waited about 5 min and it still wont turn on....

This sounds like a motherboard problem, unplug computer and remove main battery and leave it out. Now plug in power adapter, press power, if no! remove the hard drive, power up to see if you get a screen prompt, If no! remove one stick of ram, if no! remove the second stick and make sure you put back the first one, if yes! the stick in your hand is bad, if no! there is a motherboard issue. If all this fails put everything back except the battery and power supply, next hold down the power button for 40 seconds, after that time install battery and power adapter and press power "this is a last ditch effort"

Computer went off and starts anymore. unless wen I unplug a cable

Hi Leslie,
It could be your power supply is dead. The 4 cable wire is the 12v axillary power supply for the graphics. When unplugged you will get no graphics when plugged in nothing will work if that rail of the power supply is faulty. Hank

It is stuck in power saver mode tried every thing can not get in come back up. Tried turning off and on, unpluged and pluged back in, put in cd, tried starting in safe mode with F8 key.

Possible that it's caused by a faulty hardware

1. Remove all the connection at the back of your computer
2. Power cycle your computer tower by pressing the power button for 15 seconds
3. Plug the power cord back in and monitor cable at the back of your computer tower (if it turned on, meaning that one of the device plugged at the back of your computer is the one's causing the problem, for you to pin point the problem, try plugging it one-by-one and turn on the computer each time you plug a device)
4. If it keeps on doing that, open up your computer tower (be careful to unplug the power cord and power cycle it to avoid static electricity)
5. Reseat the video card, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
6. Reseat the IDE/Sata cable of your hard drive and try to make sure it's properly plugged in, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
7. Reseat the memory, turn on the computer and test it again if the same thing
8. If you have 2 memory chip inserted in your computer tower memory slot, remove the other one and turn on the computer, do the same thing to other memory and each slot
9. Reseat the CPU and start the computer.

Had a power outage and now router not sending signal. I am not sure these events are related. all lights look good on router and I have internet on wired comp. unpluged modem and router then pluged modem...

Most of the time, routers and modem stops working when it sense a power outage. This is the defense mechanism of these devices to avoid from being damaged.

Turn off the computer, router and modem. Leave them off for 15 minutes. Then turn the modem back on first, wait for 30 seconds.

Then turn on the router, wait for another 30 seconds. After that turn the computer ON.

This would power cycle the router. If same problem occurs, contact the router manufacturer.

Have a great day!

Wont power on.

i had this problem a few days ago actually. your computer, especially because its a laptop could be overheated. this could have killed your CPU(central power unit) inside of your computer. I would just wait about three days or so after keeping it in a moderate temperature and then try to turn it back on again. Thats what I did and as you can tell min is Working! please rate my answer I would really appreciate it!

Computer won't start up!

Waiting for 10 or 15 or even 30 minutes doesn't make much sense to me. What kind of flash drive or drives do you use? .. USB Thumb/Pen/Flash drive? .. If your flash drives in "My Computer" folder just happen to disappear, does the computer still working or freezed state? When you say your computer does not want to start on AT ALL.' the machine is not running at all or just that the operating system is not booting up?
