    What's the exact make and model of the laptop?

    And try taking out the battery, connecting the charger, and powering up the PC.

    Can you hear any fans spinning?

    Any other LED indicators lit up other than just power?

    the best thing to do is to back up all your files you want to keep then get the recovery disk do a factory restore. see if that helps. you can order the disk off of amazon for a penny and get it shiped to you

    If the OP can't get the computer to boot, how do you expect them to backup their files?

    And show me a link where you can purchase a Recovery CD off Amazon for a penny.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Depending on how far you're able to get when you boot up the computer, try this:

    How to Access Safe Mode

    While the computer is turning on, tap F8 repeatedly until a black screen with white text appears. Using your arrow keys highlight the option Safe Mode and hit Enter.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you're getting absolutely no display whatsoever (just a black screen), try plugging in an external monitor to see if a display comes up there.

    the recovery disk gives you the option to do a backup before you restore it and as for the price it has gone up a little it is now 26 cents just look for it on amazon its on like the 2nd or 3rd page

    I've never seen this option on any Recovery software.

    Have you done this specific procedure with this laptop?
