What You Should Do If Your PC or Laptop Doesn’t Turn On

system, you can fix the problem by finding out how and when the PC failed.

That said, if you start your PC, and it doesn’t start, then the problem is very different from your computer not being able to load the operating system.

For starters, if there is no response to turning on the Power button, it’s pretty clear that electricity isn’t getting to the PC – a power problem, if you will.

So, the first thing that you have to do is unplug the power cord and check for any breaks or damage. If it is alright, then plug the cable back in while making sure that all plugs are firmly in their sockets. In the case of a laptop adapter, make sure all the pieces are connected together properly as well.

Now, if your computer still does not start, then plug something else in the same socket that your computer is plugged to for power. This will tell you whether or not there’s something wrong with the power cable or the socket itself.

(In the case where you have a surge protector, check as to whether it is on or not!)

If the socket is fine, then it is time for you to change the power cord or in the case of a laptop – the AC adapter. Of course, in the case of the latter, you will have to pick one that is specific to the model of your laptop.

Or else, this could have to do with the power supply unit in your desktop. These are cheap and easy to purchase and replace. However, in the case of a laptop, make sure you hire the services of a professional in order to make the necessary changes.
