Hi I recently obtained an older laptop (3-4 years) for simple college school work and such, but I am having a problem of actually getting it to turn on. I've checked the battery and the power cord, also I've checked the power cord port to make sure it isn't loose. Was wondering if I could get any feedback on to why it won't turn on and maybe what I could do to fix it.

Hi R-Ie, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

I take it there is now signs of life when you turn it on, no a LEDs, no fans?

If you have a volt meter you might want to see what the voltage is coming out of the adapter. If you have proper voltage there then check the battery. Also check for loose connections of the charger.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
