My Chromebook Won't Power On or Charge.

The Chromebooks are programmed to turn on when you open the cover. Once you open the cover, don't hit the power button. This can sometimes cause the Chromebook to freeze.


  1. Close your Chromebook, plug it in, and open it.
  2. If this does not work, see the instructions for a powerwash.

My Chromebook is showing a white box when I try to get onto Launchpad.

See the directions for a powerwash.

I Need to Powerwash My Chromebook.

Plug the charger into your Chromebook, open the Chromebook cover, and hold down the Refresh and Power buttons at the same time and then release.


If this does not work, bring your Chromebook to the library for additional assistance.
