Hello, my name is*****'m going to answer this to the best of my ability and knowledge, and I've been a PC and IT tech for 15 years.

If you have reseated the battery, checked the outlet, checked the power cord, and it still won't power on, then it may have fried the I/O board on your laptop.

If you'd like, I can walk you through a few steps to make sure.

I did all the these steps myself (at no cost) I know that much about computers, before ever going to this site....all 3 responses I got were of no help to me! Had I know would not have wasted $$$$.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Will not use this site again...."experts" just give answers you can get on line for free!!!
Tech Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

If you did all the test it is a hardware issue. Most probably the power supply inside the system or the motherboard damaged.

I understand that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me where I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information.

Regards

Jins

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
