    So I used my Laptop and I was watching some YouTube videos when I got a notification that said that I needed to charge it. So in fear of missing anything from the video and because I couldn't find the charger I used the charger of my other Laptop and since then I'm not able to turn the Laptop on. Eventually I found the other charger that belongs to that Laptop and if I try to charge it now with that charger all it does is the LED lights up but I'm not able to turn it on. Even after research I still don't know what's going on so I'd be grateful for all the help I can get. Thank you in advance!

    You've probably damaged it.
    You can't use a charger with more volts.

    Example: my Asus tablet has a charger with 5.2V
    My Samsung phone and tablet have chargers with 5V.
    If I used the Asus charger on the Samsung devices, I'd fry them because of the over voltage.
