How to Fix – Any Laptop That Wont Turn On / No Power / Freezes or Turns Off at Start Up

THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN UPDATED HERE; https://youtu.be/HHwzA37r4e8
For a computer that wont start, shuts off or freezes during start-up, start your troubleshooting process here!
If these tests do not identify the issue, then troubleshoot deeper into the computer with a BIOS Reset as seen here; https://youtu.be/VO5BhbiItCM.

To Donate, feel free to leave a Super Thanks by clicking on the Heart Button under the video.
Even a couple bucks goes a long way to help me create these videos and be as available as possible for comments and questions !!

If that fails, then test your Power Adapter as seen here; https://youtu.be/YBhsVHideGE
and then your Power Jack as seen here; https://youtu.be/HpabvrNaodU.
If all those tests do not reveal the issue, then your most likely looking at a Motherboard replacement.

Q: What if my battery is build in?
A: For a computer with an internal battery, try this video first; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUCVN2GLYuA&feature=youtu.be

Q: My computer is overheating and wont turn on. Will this help?
A: So to troubleshoot a computer that wont turn on, I would usually say to start with this video. However, an overheating computer can damage multiple components, make multiple components act in weird ways, and therefor makes it very hard to troubleshoot which components are the cause of the computer not turning on. You should try to address the overheating first. You can see that process here; https://youtu.be/K_j4GPjpawk

  11. Man I’m freaking out
    So I was watching this video and got up to 3:10 and my computer turned on 🫨
    I hadn’t even attempted to remove the battery cause my computer is so broken (the screen is all cracked and broken so much that I can’t even close my computer screen) and my computer just turned on


  13. My laptop, thinkpad e15, powerbutton light is on, but the keyboard light (capslock, numlock not on) and display screen is not turning on also

  14. Thank to you dude if it will not open my brother will just kill me thanks to you and god❤😢

  15. Nice video, I did exactly what you told me to do, I did see that my battery after I got it started thanks to you was dead, I do have a habit of pulling the plug out of the computer when it's fully charged but I leave it plugged in to a receptacle, not sure if that's a good idea, And I don't close my computer down when I'm done I let it shut off by itself, not sure if that's good, but I did what you told me to do and my computer came on and was very responsive, I could build car engines but I don't know anything about computers so thank you very much

  16. You are a true hero man 🥺
    I don't hv that much money now to buy a new laptop, I hv no words how much you helped mee. God bless you❤❤

  17. My laptop is turning on and off it's not picking up the power
