laptop wont charge

If you have access to another charger, of the same specs, then I would try that one on the device to see if it is the battery or the charger that is a problem. If you don't have one, then it will need to be looked at by a professional. Also, while many laptops batteries are hard to get to, they are still accessible. At least if you feel comfortable trying to yourself, or if not, then if under warranty I would contact the manufacturer. If not under warranty you may want to try a local tech.

 
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.
