- The laptop doesn’t power up
This is one of the most common cases we have come across with our computers. We often switch on our computers and the screen does not light up or the power adapter is unable to charge. In such cases, try checking the AC adapter for fuses if any, might be that some fluctuations in the voltage caused the adapter plug to spark or test the adapter with the help of a voltmeter. If your adapter still does not work, try switching your laptop on with a different one.
Also, try testing the DC port of your laptop for any break down, if it is, the jack might have to be replaced with a new one.
- Screen fluctuation issue
There have been several instances where the laptop screens turn on and off frequently while working. Many reasons can be attributed to this problem. For one, this can be due to failure of the motherboard. You can try replacing it with a new one if that is the case.
- Abrupt shut down or screen freeze
This is probably due to the laptop getting overheated or dust being a factor as well. For this, try cleaning the fan and avoid situations where your laptop overheats. There could be a problem with the adapter too, so make sure you check that as well in the steps shown above.
