I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sounds like the graphics processor on your laptop is on the way out, if even an external monitor didn't work.

Does BIOS work? F12/DELETE when booting up to get in.

              So I have had this problem several times with the same laptop. I will go to sleep and when I wake up the laptop won't turn on. I do the RAM reset thing, remove the memory cards, but nothing. I'll just leave it plugged in and usually after a couple of days the laptop will suddenly turn on. Well, it happened again yesterday. I woke up and the laptop once again will not turn on. Can't contact dell support because they are absoultely no help. Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

A:dell laptop wont turn on

Check for a tiny little switch below the screen lid. It's possible that it got stuck down. Also, check the bios battery. A dead or low bios/cmos battery voltage will cause all kinds of craziness. Remove power plug, remove laptop battery, press hold power switch. Plug in power only no battery see if it boots. It could be a worn out or broken power port on the laptop.

I have a dell win 7 laptop that just beeps and will not turn on. I tried replacing the ram with good ram that did not work.
The beeping does not have a pattern it just keeps beeping if it is turned on. No bios screen comes up.

I am not sure what else to check for ..or if there is a way to fix this

thanks for any help

A:Dell laptop just beeps and wont turn on

Have you try to connect via AC with battery remove? Check if its working

When its all the sudden occur the issue? Seems it can be an hardware issue like broken power jack.

A common problem which causes that is a broken power jack - you can check for that by wiggling the power cord where it goes into the laptop - if it seems loose or you see the battery charge light intermittently, that's likely the problem. There are companies that specialize in that repair (it's that common) for a fairly reasonable fee or, if you are adept at soldering it can be a DIY thing
That isn't the only possibility but it's common enough for your symptoms that it should be checkedClick to expand...

I had the same problem with a Latitude. Try taking the battery out and starting it. Could be that the battery is bad.
The other thing that could be wrong is the power cord. My Latitude has had a bad power cord even though the green light in that box in the cord stays lit.
Dell sent me a new one. Good luck

Hey there,

I have an Inspiron 11 3000 hybrid laptop. Yesterday it was freezing all night while I was watching a movie, and buy today morning the screen wouldnt turn on. I can hear the ventillation and the backup light is on, when I push the start button. I googled a bit, and someone suggested connecting the laptop to a TV via HDMI, and it actually works. So I can see the windows 10 start screen on my TV, and even the touchpad works -- it just fails to show up on the laptop screen. Any suggestions, Id like to avoid the service point.

Hi Guys!
Please kindly help me regarding ACER Aspire V3-371-56cb. The screen wont turn on but the it is fully charged and the power button is on. I tried to press the power button for 10sec but it only turn of with a TICK sound. I really need the help now. Im using it to find a job. Thank you!


If you can use an external monitor to connect to it, see if that produces anything. If the external monitor doesn't work then it is a video card problem. If the external monitor works, then the laptop's LCD screen is dead. Either way, you need repairs done to it. That's one of the reason I don't use laptops, everything is in one piece, when one thing fails, you have to send the whole thing to the repair shop, whereas with a desktop, you can swap parts yourself.

A:My Laptop Screen Wont Turn On But It Powers Up

Have you tried connecting an external monitor (how to is in your manual)?

It may well be a component failure like an inverter board since you 'crashed' when it first happened.
Relevancy 74.39%

Hi, does anyone know what the problem is? I took out the screen of my old laptop, and put a replacement screen in. The screen its self (Samsung) is exactly the same model as the old one, except the inverter board looks a bit different. The laptop turns on fine with no screen plugged in, but when when I plug the new screen in, the only thing that turns on is the power supply light. I tried removing the new screen and it turned on fine. It's only when the screen is plugged in when it doesn't turn on. Is it because it's the wrong inverter board? I still have the old one. Should I just switch the boards? Thanks for all the help.

Unplug the system, remove the battery and hold the power button for 30 sec.   Return the system to the original memory configuration.  If it'll power up, you're set.
If not, did you remove the memory with the system plugged in and/or with the battery connected?  If you did, you may well have fried the mainboard.

I have a Dell Optiplex SX270 Desktop that has always ran windows XP and it has ran acceptable. I shut it off Friday at the end of business and went to turn it on Monday and it will not turn on. I assumed it could be the PSU so I swapped it out with another adapter from a similar computer and it still doesn't work. The light on the mother board will turn on but the fans will not. Dell's support site said to take out the hard drive and the ram but this didn't have any effect. They said that after the ram is taken out and you try to power it up again the system should emit a beep code, but this did not happen. Does anyone else have any suggestions for me to try?

A:Dell Optiplex SX270 wont turn on

Unless you have a power supply tester, and a spare known good power supply, the best thing to do is to take the tower to a shop and have the power supply tested. If the power supply tests "bad" then they could jump a known good power supply to the motherboard and see if the board is good.

I do these tests in my shop quite often. It takes about 20 minutes and the cost should be minimal, perhaps $25-$30.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Vista that will not boot up. When I turn the computer on the fan runs but the screen stays black and nothing turns on. The battery light blinks amber, and the wifi catcher light blinks yellow then blue. I thought it was the DC power jack/USB board, so I bought and replaced it, but that didn't do anything. It still does the same thing. I couldn't find any diagnostic for the blinking lights (the keyboard lights do not light up). I tried re-seating the RAM and anything else I could think of, but nothing works. Does this mean my motherboard is fried? How can I tell if it is that, or something else?

I have a n7110 17r, i got it used so there is no warranty on it. I got it around February of this year. Then one day around May the screen stopped working but the fan and everything else worked still. I decided to take it apart to see if the cable to the screen was on correctly but then when I put it back together nothing started working and there are no lights except for the Windows mobility center button (the one with 2 gears on it). It lights up as soon as i plug in the charger in the laptop with no battery or if the battery has some charge and I push the power button. Is there a way to fix this or is this laptop dead?

A:Dell Inspiron n7110 17r wont turn on

Download the service manual here - - remove the memory modules, disconnect the HDD / ODD and power on the system and check the exact # of beeps in a cycle. This will help diagnose the source of the issue.
Press and hold the fn key + power button - it should initiate diagnostics and if there is an error, count the exact # of beeps in a cycle and it will help isolate the source of the issue.
Connect an external monitor and check if the display works fine.
If nothing goes, I would primarily suspect the motherboard.
As there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call -
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

When the dogs jerked out the AC adapter, this probably broke the DC jack from the motherboard. This can be repaired, but you "tore it apart", maybe causing more damage

This paper discusses troubleshooting steps for notebooks that are not turning on.  Typically it could be one of three issues,  No power (no power to the notebook), No post (the system has power but is not fully turning on), or No boot (the system has power, it is turning on, but it is not booting to the Operating system).
From your post it is obvious that the notebook has power,  but it isn't fully turning on.  I would have to say that this is a No post problem. This paper will go over further troubleshooting steps to help determine the problem.
If the notebook is not starting up or showing a blank screen:

Remove any peripheral devices that are attached to the computer. Peripherals include:

Media Card Readers
Mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets or portable digital assistants or MP3 players
Digital cameras or video recorders
USB storage devices
Remove the computer from a docking station if it is in one
Remove any CDs or DVDs in the optical drive
Remove the AC adapter from the computer and remove the AC power cord from the wall outlet.
Remove the computer's battery. For instructions on how to do this, consult the Online Owner's Manual.
Press and hold the computer power button for 15 seconds.
Insert the AC adapter plug and make sure it is seated properly.
Plug in the AC power cord to a known good working outlet.
Press the power button to see if the computer turns on.
If the computer starts, turn it off and put the battery back in.
Press the power button to see if the computer turns on.
If the computer starts, turn it off and continue replacing peripheral components until you determinewhich one is causing the failure.
Please let me know if this helps out.

My laptop started showing signs of trouble last year. At first, it would go blue screen while I was using. I neglected that. Then, It started turning off if shaken. Now it turned of after I picked it up, and it's been dead nomather what I do.
I tried unplugging everything, including power supply, discharged flea power, but nothing happened...
When I press the on button, the LED light up as they should. The screen remains dead. After about 10 seconds, the battery LED and the CD LED start pulsing on and off (around 1Hz). The fan also follows the LEDs, accelerating and decelerating... No beep is heard.
What could it be? How can I test it?

2 days ago my Dell started to mess up. It's only a couple years old, but it won't turn on. I put it on standby a couple days ago, and when I woke the next morning, all it does is flash orange (or amber) rather the turn green and power up. I tried messing with the insides and sercuring cables, but I don't even hear the fan blowing, so I have no idea whats wrong.

It would be great if you could help. i'm desperate here.

How many beeps between pauses?
If it's three beeps, pause, three beeps repeating, it's a bad mainboard.  Which board you need depends on which CPU you have - the CPU is a permanent part of the mainboard.

When I turn on my laptop the power button comes on for about 30secs and then it goes off nothing happens on the monitor any ideas how to fix this???


A:laptop wont turn on

Did anything peculiar happen the last time you shut it down? Has the computer been exposed to high humidity or general moisture? Most likely this is an issue with the power supply, as a quick fix you might try booting without the battery, or visa versa without the charger.

To get into 'Safe Mode', tap the F8 key several times once you see the BIOS screen, but have a look at this tutorial which covers the subject in some depth :

Before you do anything else, if you can get into Safe Mode, use Windows Explorer to back up any data your friend may have on the computer, to a memory stick will do fine. If you are getting as far as the log-in screen you should be able to boot into Safe Mode as this happens before you get that far. I can see no reason for you to touch the hard drive, RAM or DVD drive, at least in the sense I think you mean of removing them.

From Safe Mode, try restoring the computer to an earlier configuration using a restore point. If that doesn't work, he may be faced with an operating system re-install, but come back before you go that far and see if you can get more expert help.

i have an acer aspire 7736z-4088. I bought it brand new in feb of this yr and it worked fine until one day i went to use it and i got it on and then all of a sudden it shut off and will not come back on. I tried unplugging it from charger, taking battery off and plugging laptop straight to charger with no battery, holding down the power button for however long it says too, bought a new charger and battery. It will not even light up to show that charger is attached. No lights come on at all. Can anyone help?

A:Laptop wont turn on

Sounds like an internal problem with the power input circuitry on the board. My top suspect would be the power jack that's mounted on the motherboard, they're very fragile and frequently get broken. I've personally replaced several of them.

Be very careful trying to power this up if the jack is suspect. If you wiggle it around and get a short, really bad things can happen. Here's an example, this was a Compaq laptop that was brought to me to fix, but I was a little late after the flames.

There are a lot of possibilities. So it can be difficult (and easy!)

Lets do the real simple stuff.

Reseat the ram card(s) and blow out any dust
Reseat the HardDrive (make sure to make a secure connection)

Pull out the main (big) battery,; remove the power adaptor. Hold down ON for 30secs (dispersing all internal power)
Re-insert the power adaptor
Turn On

Now it gets a bit harder!
Remove all power again
Begin to pull it apart (the dissamble guide should be on the net somewhere)
Remove all internal dust
Reconnect all internal connections
Turn on again

Lastly (still with it apart)
Reseat the CPU

Good luck

Yes my jumpers are correctly set.
Yes my video card is PCI and was tested on another computer.
Yes the screen was also tested with other systems and the cable, and they both work.
It is a P2B Asus Motherboard running on a 350mhz Pentium II 100mhz, 3 sticks of 128mb sdram pc-100. 250w working powersupply.

Screen just doesnt want to turn on with the system.

A:Screen wont turn on.

When the screen remains blank either something is loose or needs to be replaced. Any history or did this just happen one day when you turned the system on? Since you have 3 sticks of RAM have you tried one at a time.

I have a Dell inspiron 15 that won't power on. I tried taking the battery out and pressing the power button for 30 seconds, didn't help. Called customer service they said maybe the motherboard but they don't have any that would fit my laptop and the warranty is expired.
Any other suggestions? Thanks

Hey guys, honestly for the life of me I cannot turn on my old laptop. I got a Dell Inspiron 1520 and stopped using my Dell Latitude D420. I want to use it again for college because the Inspiron is a hassle to carry around. But as embarrassing as it is, I can't remember how to turn it on. Any help would be greatly appreciated by my aching back. Thanks!

Are you not finding the power button, or is the problem more serious than that?
