Help! My laptop won’t turn on!
If your laptop won’t turn on, don’t panic! There are a lot of reasons a laptop might not turn on when you hit the power button, and we can help you with all of them! To help you narrow your problem down, take a look at the following scenarios:
When I press the power button a lightning bolt flashes but the laptop doesn’t turn on!”
This might be a power jack problem (we can fix that!). If the lightning bolt flashes but the laptop doesn’t turn on, it’s telling you the battery is dead. If the power cord is plugged into the wall and is still happening, you may need a power jack repair.
“I press the power button and all the lights turn on, but the laptop doesn’t show anything on the screen!”
Power might not be your problem. Your laptop could be having a problem with the screen, the chipset, or maybe the LCD cable. It definitely sounds like a hardware problem and you’ll need to have a technician check it out.
“I press the power button and nothing happens at all. What’s wrong?!”
