There is your problem, you tampered with the hardware. Send it to the computer manufacturer for fixing.

Remove the battery and the AC adapter from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds then let go
Plug the AC adapter only back into the laptop
Now press the power button on the laptop

My HP laptop screen will not do anything. The first time this happened, I was in the middle of something and the screen suddenly became a bunch of black and white random-ness. I shut it down, and tried...


Perform the following:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If turned on, shut down the Notebook, insert the Battery and turn it on again. That's it.

Cause:
With an extensive use of the notebook, some times notebook would store some static charges which indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging the battery.

Performing above procedure will not effect any personal data or delete any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.

Check your memory card, reseat or clean it with soft eraser its edge connector. But first shut it down fully, battery disconnected and no other power source connected to it before doing so.

If this does not come on test with a spare ram. Before checking on another fault.

I have no POST or screen power when I turn on the laptop


Try this.
Remove the main battery and power the laptop up - if it works connect the battery - no need to shutdown.
Next thing to try.
Remove the main battery and the BIOS battery wait 1/2 + hour, insert BIOS battery but not main battery - power up, configure BIOS Date & Time setting if OK connect main battery.

If none of this work, you have a large paper weight.
You can salvage the hard disk and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Toshiba Satellite: A135-S4427 / Won't shut down


Hi,
by pressing the power button in, the computer has gone into standby or hibernate mode.
Heres what you Do:- press and hold the power button for between 10 to 20 seconds.
that should bring it out of hibernation.
if that does,nt work. remove the main battery.
when you,ve resolved the problem, run a disk-scan via your windows operating system.

Laptop will not power on at all.


Don't know what you have for a laptop, so will have to give you a generic process, here. Power down. Remove hard drive, remove cd reader and/or floppy drive. Remove memory cards. Replace only 1 memory card in the main slot (probably marked as slot 1). Try to power it back up and let us know what happens.
Thanks!

Problem with the power switch /motherboard


Remove the battery, plug it in and and try to turn it on. If it turns on without the battery, the most probable cause is battery worn out.

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.


Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
