Notebook doesn't turn on


Nov 15, 2016
My sister's notebook was not turning on so she sent it to me to take a look.

I removed the battery, placed it back on and then plugged the AC adapter. Pressed the power button and it turned on.

I assumed that the problem was with the battery that wasn't inserted correctly.

Two hours later when i was almost finishing configuring, installing programs, drivers, etc it turned off again and now it doesn't turn on (It was at 54% and charging btw).

What i tried:
1. Hard Reboot
2. Removed the battery and tried to turn it on with only the AC adapter as power source

Anyone have any idea why this is happening? When i plug the AC adapter the charging light becomes green, so i guess it's not a problem with the adapter.

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.

It could also be the charging circuit (which may be on the motherboard or on its own board).
