hibernate mode.
Reseat the AC adapter cable into the
power connector on the computer and the

an electrical outlet and that the power strip
is turned on.
Temporarily bypass power protection
devices, power strips, and power extension
cables to verify that the computer turns on
properly.
Ensure that the electrical outlet is working
by testing it with another device, such as
a lamp.
Check the AC adapter cable connections.
If the AC adapter has a light, ensure that the
light on the AC adapter is on.

computer is not responding — The display may
not be responding.
Press the power button until the computer

not be responding.
Press a key on the keyboard, move the

normal operation.
If the display is not responding, press the
power button until the computer turns off
and then turn it back on.
