My computer wont turn on........

you can see if its charged up
if its not plug it up
If that dont work you can take the battery out and put it in then plug it up
Unplug the power cord. Examine it for breaks or other damage. If you find damage, you know what to replace
plug everything back in, make sure all of the plugs are firmly in their sockets, and try again

If it still doesn't work, plug something else—like a lamp—into the same socket. That will tell you if there's a problem with the surge protector or the electric outlet.
If the cord appears to be fine and the socket works, try replacing the power cord or, in a laptop, the AC adapter. You may have to buy one specific to your model
