Please Hold the power button down for at least 8 seconds to shut it off. If the problem persists Try the following steps to resolve the problem :

  • Remove the Battery and disconnect the AC Adapter; Hold the power button down for 10 seconds
  • Reseat the battery on the laptop and power it on
  • Remove the Battery from the laptop and power it on using only the AC Adapter
  • Ensure that the Power LED on the AC Adapter is lit to ensure the functionality of the AC Adapter, also try another working AC Adapter if available.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
