My friend had hardware failure so I took apart his laptop, now it wont turn on. However, when I plug it in, it will charge the battery and shows the light for the battery. Is there a different way I can turn on the laptop or any suggestions?

There is another way...

You must journey to the Forbidden Land after obtaining an ancient sword. There you will offer up the laptop to the Shrine of Worship and defeat the shadow creatures with the ancient sword. Dormin will speak to you then and you shall request that your laptop be powered on again. You will have to slay 16 Colossi in order to restore your laptop to functioning order but be warned for the price could be great to you.

Do this and your laptop will power back on.

Sounds like the motherboard is fragged. Laptops are not particularly fun to work with, but you can try to make sure you aren't missing any ribbons, also make sure the monitor is working. If it has a port for an external monitor, you can try that.

Must be a PC, which means I can't help you. Nothing against windows, I'm just saying thatw I dont know that OS.

You show no power going to the laptop whatsoever? What make and model is it?

Edit: To further question, when you push the power button it does nothing? Doesnt act like its booting.

These are all such great tips! Hey, VGF, will you take care of my taxes next year?

So before you took it apart, it would power up? If so, you didn't it put it back together correctly. Check the connections.

Seeing as how both problems are unrelated to gaming, sure - why not!

It's definitely broken.

Your laptop could use a pork bun

Mine did this not long ago. The power switch went bad. I had to take it apart and hardwire the connections . It stays on all the time but it was a temporary solution until I can get an new switch.
