Trouble Turning My Laptop On

Hi,

I'm new to the forums and I need some help with an issue.

My laptop won't turn on when I press the power button. A small light flashes for a moment, but other wise, nothing happens.

Above the light that flashes, is a small lightning bolt symbol...but I'm not sure what that means.

Please, if ANYONE can think of a solution or reason as to why it's not turning on, and what I can do to solve this problem, I woulod be most appriciative. I need my laptop for school and until I get this issue solved, I can't do my studies.

Thank you.

Maya M.

Trry this..remove the power cord,then the battery. Re-attach the power cord only and try to start it.If that works, shut down and replace battery.

You're welcome,glad to help. Do you have the latest BIOS installed? Use the "Support & Drivers" button at top of this page to find your drivers page to check. Use complete model number as listed on the Service Tag on bottom of the laptop_or use the 'Start Detection' feature.

@Ditsie101 

 

Try a hard reset, works sometimes.Disconnect all external devices first.

1-remove power cord and battery

2-press power button for 30 seconds

3-reinstall only power cord for first startup.

4-power on
