HP Laptop Not Powering On

I was fixing a HP 15-D013A laptop, they couldn't get on the internet, the clock was set to 2029 so I fixed it and now they can get on the internet, then they had a CD stuck in the CD Rom so I took a paperclip and got it out and all was working fine, then my new puppy ran across me and the laptop and now it doesn't seem to turn on. It wasn't enough to really do any damage but I'm not sure if she pressed some keys or something.

I charged it all night but now when I try to turn it on I see the blue power light on the right side and the wireless light on the function key is orange but that's it, nothing on the screen or anything??? It's running Windows 8

I was fixing this for my fater-in-law and really don't want to replace it! lol

Few things you could check:

- remove battery, hang on power supply press power see if it boots.
- with battery removed, disconnect from power supply press power button a few times, try to boot it again with either battery or power supply.
- Try to boot it with an external monitor, maybe the onboard video is broken/switched/etc...
- Do you see a startup screen? BIOS? Anything, or is it all black from the start?

The screen is black and I don't really hear anything, you know you can normally hear it booting, just hear the CD rom but it's not my laptop so I'm not sure how much noise it would make??

I will try it when I get home, thanks for the help.

See if there is a function key for disabling the onscreen display (or for switching the display across to an external monitor).  It is possible that your puppy has run across the key(s) and disable the display.  If so press those key(s) and see if the display switches back.

hmmmmm... some 'quick and dirties' to try

- press and hold the Power button for 5 - 10 seconds. did it come On?

- with the plug and battery out, press and hold the Power button for 20 - 30 seconds.
-- put just the plug back in, and see if it starts.
-- try it with just the battery
-- try it with both

- disconnect the power and battery. reseat the ram. reconnect power and try it
- disconnect the power and battery. remove the hard drive. reconnect power and try it

maybe first, look carefully at the keyboard (down low, from side to side, and see if any keys look like they might be "stuck" down.
also press them one at a time, and see if any feel "different".

quick question - can you toggle the wireless "light" On an Off? If yes, then it's less likely to be a keyboard issue. but not a guarantee.

You might also want to check to see if the power supply is still getting power.  It should have an indicator light.  Many laptop power supplies and cords can fail from overheating, power surges, kinked wires, etc.  Are you confident your power supply and cord are functioning 100%?

Hello All, I removed the battery and RAM, then put it back together and everything was the same, I put a Win 8 disk in, it's not even bootable and everything came back, it's like the CD "woke" the laptop up and I have shut down and restarted a few times and we are all good to go again.

Thanks so much for all the help in suck a quick time! I am actually off to Puppy Kindergarten now hahaha so hopefully no more issues.
