Try to Troubleshoot your Chromebook:

  1. Since this problem is often caused by the battery going into "storage mode" by being drained completely, make sure the Chromebook is plugged in when you do these steps.
  2. With the Chromebook off, press and hold ecs + refresh arrow + power for 2 or 3 seconds
  3. Once you see the white screen with the pictures of a thumbdrive and sd card asking for recovery media, power down the Chromebook by pressing just the power button.
  4. Wait 30 seconds and press power to turn the Chromebook back on. It may take up to a minute to come back on.
  5. Log into your Chromebook as you normally would.
  6. If this doesn't fix the issue, please contact the Help Desk at 860-376-7662 or email Kyle Gunderman
