i have a cheap IRULU spiritbook SL1 laptop that i purchased on amazon 2 years ago.
when the power is plugged in there is a red light visible where the connector inserts into the side of the laptop, when i press the power button the green power indicator light blinks intermittently but the computer does not turn on.
any thoughts on the cause?
irulu has a confusing website and tech support forums are seemingly non existent.
i guess you get what you pay for
thanks for the help
NOTE: Yes, I know some batteries are not so easy to get to, on some devices. However, it should be removable/replaceable. Unless it is under warranty, then you should contact the manufacturer first.
Try the following and see if it will turn on...
1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.
If this doesn't help, then test the power cord to see if it is good. Either try your cord in another device, or try another devices cord in your laptop. You may also want to try charging it when the device is off, rather than on. If it works then, the cord is probably the issue.
Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.
If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, then I would try a local tech.
