Hi,
I just came back from a few weeks away and discovered that my laptop is dead. It won't switch on at all. I would be very grateful if you could advise me what to do please. Thanks.

All the Best,

    Thanks very much! I removed the battery and hit the power switch and the laptop started without a problem.

If you are getting no lights at all on the laptop, you need to check the "powerline" - everything between the outlet and the back of the laptop.

Start by removing the battery. Then, check to see if the power pack has an ON light, if it does, make sure it is on, if it has a light and it is off, try plugging the power pack into a different outlet you know works. If it is still off, you have a bad powerpack and needs replacing. If the powerpack does not have a light, you need to find a geek friend with a multimeter (or get one at WalMart for $4), and check the powerpack's output in volts matches whatever it says on the side of the pack. If the voltages do not match up (generally) you have a bad powerpack. If you are getting normal voltage from the powerpack but the laptop is not getting any power, you have a different set of problems. Is the laptop beeping when you try to turn it on? Do you get any activity at all?

Good luck...

    Try charging the battery for one hour with the laptop off; if it does not charge, one of the cells in the battery pack has gone bad, and you need to remove the pack and recycle it; don't leave the bad pack in the laptop or it will lead to trouble...

It sounds like you have a bad dimmer switch. The dimmer switch is located at the left floor pan area. Your husband can disconnect the connector and use a jumper wire to get the headlamps working long enough to get home. Then, when it is more convenient, replace the switch.

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

It turns on for a few seconds then shuts off


Hi,
Since you have already replaced the ac adapter. The problem is still there. the most likely cause of the failure is bad motherboard. Remove the battery from the laptop and disconnect the ac adapter . Press the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the ac adapter and try powering on the system. If the same doesnot work
