So You've turned the laptop on but it doesn't work. Great!! Just when you need it the most!! So time to try a couple of Home DIY fixes before rendering it 'obsolete!' And calling in the big guns!!

So System check:

Is the battery missing or fitted incorrectly. Sounds daft and people will Say 'of course it is I'm not daft' however This is often the case if we have accidentally "dropped it" or stored it in that safe place that no one knows about!! Just Have a look and Check the battery bay, make sure the battery is in present, in position and seated correctly. The battery is designed to be fitted only one way so this is usually easy to tell.

Look at the unit and ensure that nothing is interfering with the battery contacts stopping the power circuit.

Try Removing the power adapter, * take out the battery and press the power button. Wait around 5 - 10 seconds then Replace the battery back. Then replace the power plug Re boot the laptop back up. Fingers crossed!!
