Does it show that it is charging from the charging light/power supply? Is there any life left in the battery? is the charger charging the battery? the batteries dont last in laptops usually about a year before the go bad and have to be replaced, Is the charger working? The chargers go faulty all the time, The little plug that plugs into the laptop goes faulty and is a very common fault and doesnt charge/power the laptop, The only thing you can try is another power supply of the same name/model/output voltage and current with the same small plug and polarity or another battery of the same type/model, If you can do this and it doesnt cure your fault it needs looked at by a technician, Hope this helps, If you need more assistance let me know,

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

Screen on my laptop will not work. Black screen.


Test if it works on external monitor. If it does, then turn the computer on, remove the battery, then reinsert the battery. That little trick has worked several times for me and my customers. If the external monitor does NOT work, then you probably have a bad video chip in the computer's motherboard.... by the time you fix it, you could almost by a new machine.

Laptop LCD Screen won't come on and computer keeps rebooting


Try checking the inverter, if that is intermittent, it could short the system and cause the symptoms you are describing.

LG LS55 LAPTOP DISPLAY SCREEN BLANK/BLACK


I think your laptop might be stuck in SUSPEND mode. Try unplugging the power and removing the battery and waiting five minutes, and then plugging it back in. If this does not work, try holding down the power button for ten seconds at a time and rebooting.

Good Luck...
