  • Laptop won't turn on


    Here's the problem I have:

    I own a msi vx600 laptop. Yesterday I put my usb cable into a broken usb slot and the my laptop turned off. It was like it couldn't get power anymore. I had this problem before, but taking battery out used to help.. it doesn't help now.

    Here's what i've tried: taking out battery, taking out power cable, pressing the power button for a minute, putting the power cable in. It doesn't work and I couldn't find any other solutions on the internet.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Something got shorted.
    I had that happen to USB headers on a desktop motherboard and it killed the motherboard.
    That may or may not be your situation, but the situation doesn't look good.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      yea, doesn't sound good.
      Are the any of the 4 pins of the USB port bent and touching the housing or each other? Straighten them out and give it a try.
      Beyond that... sorry
