- Check the power
- Check AC power adapters
- Look for flashing drive lights
- Check the laptop's power adapter
- See if the laptop's BIOS is up-to-date
- Check the video cables connecting the LCD panel to the laptop
Check the power
Check the power. If your laptop won't turn on using the battery, plug it into a wall outlet using the power cable that came with the machine.
Check AC power adapters
Low voltage could result in the laptop's battery being unable to charge or the computer not turning on.
Look for flashing drive lights or other activity after the laptop has been powered on. If so, and you get no display on the computer's screen, attach the laptop to an external monitor. If you get a display, then there's a problem with the laptop's LCD screen, and it may need to be replaced or repaired.
This requires opening the case and checking to see if the socket for the laptop's CPU is open or closed. If you're uncomfortable doing this, bring it to a qualified repair facility, and have them check it. Otherwise, open the case after disconnecting the batter and power cable. Remove the heat sink, which covers the CPU and check to see if the socket is set to open or closed. Set it to "closed," and then retest the computer.
Sometimes outdated BIOS can result in your being unable to recharge the battery.
