Basic Chromebook Troubleshooting

  • If your Chromebook isn’t charging, or not turning on, please check the following items: 
    • Check for the light next to the charging port on the Chromebook. If it is not illuminated, then the Chromebook is not getting power.
    • Inspect the AC power adapter. Check for any physical damage, and make sure that the power cable is firmly attached to the adapter brick and the Chromebook.
    • Remove any power strips and surge protectors, then connect the ac power adapter directly to the ac power outlet.
    • Verify the AC power source is working by plugging something else into the outlet, like a lamp.
  • Shutdown/restart the Chromebook:
    • Hold the power button until the Chromebook completely shuts down and the screen is black
    • Wait 10 seconds and turn the Chromebook back on.
  • Check for the newest version of the Chrome operating system:
    • Click the time (lower-right corner)
    • Click Settings (Gear Icon)
    • Click About Chrome OS
    • Click Check for Updates
    • If your Chromebook finds a software update, it will start to download automatically
  • Clear cache and site data:
    • Open Google Chrome
    • At the top-right, click the 3 dot icon 
    • Click More tools > Clear browsing data
    • At the top, select All time
    • Next, check Cookies and other site data and Cached images and files, leave the other options unchecked
    • Click Clear data
    • Shutdown/restart the Chromebook

If you’ve tried all these tips and your device still isn’t working, please take it to the library/media center to have the librarian look at it. They will either repair it or submit a technology help ticket to have the device repaired.
