Hello, my laptop is not booting no lights no nothing. It was working jst fine then it had a keyboard problem. The keyboard completely stopped working bt the mouse pad and everything else was working jst fine. I tried removing the battery then holding the power button for 1 min bt nothing. Then I dissembled it, cleaned the keyboard then assembled it. I tried turning it on only the fan was spinning or running bt my laptop couldn't boot. And when I connected the charger to it, the light for the charge was nt even coming on. I switched it off then tried to check the ram and hard disk connection bt nothing. Now it can't even turn on. No lights r showing even when connetected to the charger or adaptor. Kindly help

You only option is to take the laptop to a local repair shop for a diagnostic. I suspect you have a motherboard problem and it might need to be replaced.

Good luck

On most laptops you can remove the hard disk and mount it in a USB hard disk inclosure. The USB adapter can be bought on Amazon for about $15. There are two types of hard disks. If the hard disk has two rows of pins (40 pins total) then then you need a "parallel ATA" adapter. Otherwise, you need a "Serial ATA" adapter.
If your lucky, you can then plug the adapter into a desk top or another laptop to read the files.

Good luck
