Hi guys! I need some help in my laptop. When I press the power button, it will light up for a few seconds, then it will black up. I didn't hear any sounds from the inside of my laptop. I already tried the 30 seconds to a minute hold up. But it doesn't work hehehe. My computer analyzing skills are totally an average. Please help me to solve my laptop problem.

When you did the power button hold did you do the other necessary steps as well?

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.
