    so just found a dead PC at a garage sale
    that it(no story told or history)
    step one is new battery and charge it first.
    for say 12 hours.
    then push power button for 10 seconds and release.
    if battery is bad and the purse is too small
    remove it and run on AC power pack alone
    even for ever, no need to charge.

    NO PC told maker nor there model
    no easy answers,

    i pc is dead say PC and screen are dead
    if you tell make and model of pC
    read the service tag we can help easy.
    all PCs can be fixed, some tests are easy
    others need shop tools and spares.
    get it fixed in shop like 99% do is best.
    when did the PC last run right.????
    who made this laptop, HP, Dell, Acer,Asus, ?
    and model, all have model number for 40 + years even back to 1983. not one can we guess
    mine is Dell E6540, a better grade LT.

Laptop compaq will not charge will not turn on. Puting charger on it and pushing the on button i see lights once i release on button light goes out. thinking its charger or its where i plug in charger on...


Try this quick fix, if there are no issues with your charger and/or battery, this might work...
- remove battery
- make sure charger is not connected
- long press the power button for about 1 minute
- release then connect charger or power adapter, without the battery
- press power button to turn on the laptop

If this did not help, try using other power adapter.

Dell Studio 1737 --power button is broken. Is there another way to power it on?


friends ... i discovered a way that you can power on the dell studio 1535 easily ...

first of all you know the power button .. it's now working ( or stuck )
in the other side of the labtop, there's a wifi button, when the labtop is already shutten down, you can press it and it will give a light then shuts down the light in the button, that means that it gives power, now to complete the process you should know the touch button in the left side that means Dell MediaDirect ( touch control button of the dell studio ) ..

ok, Now, do exactly what i'm telling you :)

1- when the computer is shutten down, plz press the wifi detector button one press
2- it will give a light then shuts then gives light again for a longer time.
3- when giving the first light for a short time, do not wait, press the media touch button quickly, continuesly and separetly.
it it doesn't work ... try it for many times tell you know when exactly to press the media touch button

then you'll see that the labtop starts as if it was in sleep :)
thanks :)

Adaptor light on. Laptop does not start when power button pressed same problem also when try too start from battery power. Son was playing a pc game and just switched off, have waited for hour still n


try to take out both battery and power adaptor. press and hold the power button for ten secods while both are not connected. then connect the power adapter only. try to turn it on. if it still does not turn on then most likely you have a problem with the hardware. you might need to have it checked out with an outside tech already.

Power button problem


There is a small green board underneath the buttons that has silver contacts underneath them that allows the buttons to activate. These silver contacts wear out over time which is why your having to press the power button more then once to get it to respond. That small green board with the silver contacts on them would have to be replaced.

Eee pc won't turn on (I think have already posted this,not sure)


Sounds like a classic case of hardware failure!!!!!!! possibly your motherboard, start by removing the battery, hard drive and optical drive.
disconnect the laptop monitor and connect the laptop to an external monitor.
remove the memory modules clean the brass contacts with a eraser and place back in the machine 1 at a time to check to see if they work, remember to plug in the AC power suppy, if you see the post screen then its a memory issue and you can then reconnect your laptop monitor to see if it lights up, if everything works but the monitor then its the inverter or backlight that has blown and is easily repairable saving you money on a brand new screen
