There are several reasons why a desktop, laptop, or tablet computer might not power on, so it's very important that you troubleshoot this problem in the correct way!

If it appears that your computer is, in fact, receiving power (lights on the computer turn on, fans are running), even if just for a moment, make sure that you've turned on every power switch and power button involved in your computer system.

Check for disconnected computer power cable connections. A loose or unplugged power cable is one of the top reasons why a computer won't turn on!

Even though your computer runs on a battery, you should make sure that the AC adapter is plugged in properly, at least during troubleshooting. If you regularly keep your computer plugged in, but it has wiggled loose and now the battery is empty, your computer may not be getting power for this reason!

Plug your tablet, laptop, or desktop directly into the wall if it's not already. In other words, remove any power strips, battery backups, or other power distribution devices between your PC and the wall outlet.

If your computer starts getting power after doing this, it means that something that you removed from the equation is the cause of the problem. Even if nothing improves, continue troubleshooting with the computer plugged into the wall to keep things simple,

Perform a "lamp test" to verify power is being provided from the wall. Your computer isn't going to turn on if it's not getting power, so you need to make sure that the power source is working properly.
