Hey Ricky,

Two of the most common problems that would cause a laptop with power not to POST are memory and hard drive failure. Power the laptop off and wait 3 to 5 seconds before attempting to boot again. If the device fails to POST again, it may be a case of a corrupted or faulty Hard drive. If the issue is related to memory failure, beep codes will be generated and can be referenced to determine the section of memory that has failed. This is a link to our troubleshooting page which also may help you solve your problem. Good Luck!
