Here we have collected answers to the most popular questions about laptop turning-on problems from our users. Haven't found an answer to your question?

How to fix my HP laptop if it shows no signs of life?

In this case, there is a 90% probability that the problem is in the power supply. Consider a number of possible causes and their solutions:

  • No power supply. This often happens due to the inaccurate use of a laptop and its components. Maybe the battery has exhausted its resource or dropped out of the socket. Open the battery cell and inspect it carefully.
  • Burnt out power supply. In the event of a breakdown, the power supply stops carrying current. Thus, you can’t charge your laptop and turn it on.
  • Broken cable. Connect the power adapter to another laptop to identify the problem. If the device isn’t charging, replace the cable.

My laptop isn’t turning on, although I hear it’s running. Is there a solution?

If you hear how the fans work, but the system doesn’t start, this is a troubling sign that indicates that the problem is in the faulty video card. You can check this by connecting an external “donor”. So, find a LED TV or monitor from your desktop computer and connect it to the laptop with an HDMI cable. If you see the image, then the reason is in the video card.

It’s also possible that your laptop has its monitor backlight turned off. To check this, find the corresponding function key on the keyboard and activate it using the Fn button (for example, “Fn” + “F6”).

I can’t turn on the laptop as it shows the blue screen of death. What can I do to solve the problem?

The blue screen of death is one of the most serious laptop problems. It’s difficult to determine the true cause of BSoD on your own. Therefore, we recommend that you contact Howly specialists for in-depth diagnostics of your device.

You can also try reinstalling the OS on your laptop to fix system errors. Once you do this, the blue screen of death must disappear. If this nothing happens, then there’s a problem with the hardware. And only diagnostics will show what you need to repair.
