My laptop Wont Turn On

by JohnnyJones346 / January 3, 2013 5:22 AM PST

my laptop wont turn on but when i press the power on button, it light up for awhile like 3 seconds and it off by itself (only the light bulb icon light up). tried taking of the battery and use the charger only but still the same. have tried a lot of ways like taking out the battery and holding the power button for 1 minute and still doesn't work Sad been using it for 1 year already. been doing research on the internet, so far no one had this situation. Anybody can help me?

Make, model?

I've had this situation and the fix varies with the failure. Your new tech may exclaim that no one has had this issue and if that is true, then you get to explore your new, unique failure.

Do you get beeps?

If you get beeps, they're coded and can tell you something. If not, I'd suspect a hardware problem starting with the power converter (the little black brick) and cable. If not that, it could be a more serious problem best handled by a service technician.

Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
