Try the following first:

1.Disconnect the mains, remove the battery and press power button for 20secs, re-connect mains, install the battery and see whether it starts.

If that doesn't help, remove memory modules, install one at a time and try eliminating whether any of them are faulty.

Let us know the outcome.

Have you tried updating BIOS before this problem occured? It seems you have corrupted BIOS, without additional details of what happened, what you were doing, it's very difficult to assist you, you need help from a professional Technician.

Re: My laptop won't turn on

This problem faced me time ago ... I was updating BIOS then my laptop restarted and stuck on that black screen
i was able to flash the bios using fn+esc and one file in a usb

but i don't remember how i did format the usb ( fat or fat32 ) nor the file name or anything
so i need to do this again but i don't know which file to put in the usb !!

It's FAT32, I'll try to find something tomorrow as it's getting late and I'm off to bed, sorry.

EDIT:

Your model has Insyde BIOS and get help from a professional, he could change the chip or something if he couldn't recover the BIOS.

Hello,

 

Do you have access to bios setup utily? (For me, it's not a problem to flash under DOS)

If you have one file on your usb key, I suppose you have flashed under windows.
