I have a 2011 Samsung laptop, and it's not turning on. None of the lights are on, and the screen is black. I had the computer plugged in and charging, and it was working just fine, I wake up and I go to use it, but it's not turning on…what should I do?
 
Try the following and see if it will turn on...

1. First make sure the device has been charged.
2. Unplug your charger cord.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds and see if the device will turn on.
5. If it does, great, if not yet, no big deal. Now plug back in the power/charger cord. (If it didn't turn on without the cord in, it should turn on once you it is in. Yes sometimes they will turn on, or try to turn on, even with nothing attached/plugged in.)
6. 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.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.

I already check the adapter, there is light on it, but im not sure that the cable from the adapter to the laptop is working properly, i already dissemble the laptop and check on the charging port, it is in good condition, if it is not the adapter, what exactly the problem is? For now i try to check the cable between the adapter and the charging port

yes on both as I worked for Celestica(which was part of ibm til split in mid 90's) working on server motherboards & daughter cards plus working on nokia cell phones in the late 90's early 2000's.
