Potential reasons why your Samsung N130 doesn’t turn on

There are many potential reasons why your machine might not be turning on and there are a number of solutions based on the root cause of the issue.

It could be to do with a power issue, so either the charging port, your cable or the battery might need replacing.

The electrical components inside could be messed up or burnt out in which case a full repair might be needed.

Or it could be something such as a virus that has infiltrated your netbook and shut it down.

Troubleshooting to find out the problem

1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the “Power” button for 30 seconds.
4. Now plug in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.

If this doesn’t help, then test the power cord to see if it is definitely working. Either try your cord in another device or try another device’s cord in your laptop. You may also want to try charging it when the device is off, rather than on. If it works then the cord is probably the issue.

Should that not be the problem, then check the battery to see if it needs replacing.

Things to try to get your Samsung N130 back on

Try opening the netbook in ‘safe mode’ if the power button lights up. To do this, press the F8 key as soon as you press the power button and see if it comes up. Then run an anti-virus scan in safe mode if it will take you that far.

It could be that the motherboard, charging port or other electrical components are damaged within your machine, in which case it will need to be repaired or replaced.
