I have a laptop that I used about 3 weeks ago, and have left in a drawer since. I went to use it today, but when I plugged it in the computer would not turn on. Infact, there was no light that siginified that it was even charging. I tried multiple power supplies (of the same voltage), but none worked with the laptop. I have also tried using different power outlets, and I still could not get the laptop to power up. I looked around and found the docking station for this laptop, and noticed there was a different power supply. I tried turning the laptop on when it was in the docking station, but it still did not work. I tried plugging the power supply from the docking station directly to the laptop to see if that would do anything, but I still got nothing. I looked closer at both power supplies, and noticed they were not only different sizes; but different voltages as well. The one that I had stored (and used) with the laptop outputs 19V, and the larger one that was with the docking station outputs 18.5V. I don't know if this caused a problem (I have used the 19V power supply before)? What else could I do? Thanks.
