My laptop its not turning on

\015 My laptop its not turning on\015

Answers :

Unplug the laptop, remove the battery, press the power button a couple\015\012times (I think that should make sure it discharges the capacitors a\015\012bit?), leave it there maybe 2 minutes, make sure the RAM is properly\015\012seated, unplug every peripheral (even the cd/dvdrom drive), power it up\015\012on direct electric power. I would be seriously worried if it doesn't\015\012work after that. Check if you can get into the BIOS (F2, or F10, or\015\012delete, or some random key depending on the manufacturer, that you\015\012press when you power up).

OR

I just had this exact thing (more like 12 seconds, nothing appeared on\015\012the display). They found out that it was "power supply issues on the\015\012motherboard." Not power input. But it took them a good of 6 hours\015\012testing to diagnose that, so there are probably other possible problems\015\012with the same symptoms.

\015\012Good news is that I was told that if nothing had appeared on the\015\012screen, then it was in the early stages of checking that everything was\015\012a-ok in the laptop. Checking the hard drive comes later. So, it's\015\012pretty likely that your hard drive is not the malfunctioning part,\015\012which would mean you could take it out, put it in a 2.5" hard drive USB\015\012enclosure, and get all your data off. Bad news is that, for me at\015\012least, they said the repair bill would be $210 (after putting the $60\015\012diagnostic fee towards the repair, so $270 total) and 10 business days\015\012to repair. Since mine was getting old anyway, I decided to get a new\015\012one (seems like some good sales out there right now).

Notebook does not boot up at once when turned on. Dell logo does not appear but the power button is lighted. However if you turn it on and let it stand 5 minutes and then turn it off and then turn on again, the laptop turns on immediately and works perfectly. The problem comes back only if you turn off the laptop for a long time because when you just turned it off and then turn it on right away, it turns back on smoothly.
