Try removing the battery and use only the ac adapter cable. It it works then you should replace your battery.

My ASUS P4T533-C won't turn on


This is really a common problem with computers these days. It may be caused by a number of reasons like a faulty charging system, faulty battery or anything burned out on the computer's system board. But in this scenario, i would suggest the following
1. Remove the battery and connect the laptop with the AC adapter only and see if it will respond.
2. Remove the AC and re-connect the battery and try to turn it on
3. If the above two do not work, then consider changing the AC adapter for your laptop. You can try to use a different AC adapter that has the same rating as your laptop's. The problem might be with the Charger.
4. But if all this does'nt work, consider getting a Computer Technician who can open up your computer and check the circuit board, there might be a problem with one of the chips

Do you have the Gateway NV78 Series User's Reference Guide?

If not, left-click on,

This is a PDF file.
Takes a few seconds before you see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
Suggestion is that you let the file fully download, before looking through it.

(Your computer has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

"LED Solid Red

I have an hp pavilion xt963 does not power on, i have checked all the cords and cables, and the green light is on in the back of the PC at the power supply


first remove battery and try to turn on with ac adapter pluged in.

then without power to the board, alternate sticks of ram to see if one is bad.

also you may want to remove the internal wireless card and see if it was causing a problem.

finally if you have access to a volt meter check the health of the ac adapter and the connection on the back of the laptop where the laptop makes contact with the battery to charge it. if it is not out putting power then you most likely have either a bad dc jack or a bad motherboard.

Laptop died suddenly and is not charging


Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.

I have a HP laptop. The battery will not charge. Do I need the battery to operate the machine?


Hi,

The laptop will operate with or without the battery as long as the AC adapter is plugged in. The purpose of the adapter is both to charge the battery and provide power to the laptop. This is of course assuming that everything else works and has no issue.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
