A Simple Guide

Laptop Is Not Turning On Or Has No Display

This guide shows you what to do if your laptop is not turning on or has no display. There can be several reasons for this but here we outline one possible fix for laptops with removable batteries

Step one

If your laptop has an external removable battery, you can take the battery out carefully and also make sure the laptop is unplugged from the wall and from the charger if it was charging at the time.

Step two

Once you have done that, press and hold the power button on the laptop for around 30 seconds. This will force all residual power out of the capacitors on the motherboard.

Step three

Carefully put the battery back in the back of the laptop and try turning it on as you usually would. If this solution didn’t work or you have any questions, you can contact us at the bottom of this page.
