In regards to your notebook not powering up what sounds like is happening is the system got stuck in suppend mode when the system lost power. So what you will need to do is remove the battery from the system and unplug the ac adapter from the system as well. Next hold the power button for about 10 to 15 seconds. The will clear any power the capacitors may have stored. After you have done this plug in the ac adapter only and try to power the system on. The system should boot. After it does power it down again. Next unplug the ac adapter and put the battery back in. Now you should be able to use the system normally again. Note you will need to charge the battery backup.

Let me know if you still have trouble and/or if you have any other questions.

My gateway profile 4 desktop will not power on. nothing happens when I push the power button. measured 12v at the computer end of power cord. switch look ok. worked fine yesterday.


Hi,

Remove the power cord and then take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then plug in just the AC powercord and try turn the laptop on.

If it turns on let it boot into the operating system and then shut it down and put the battery back in.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem but if it doesn't turn on again with the battery in there is a problem with the battery.


Post back if you need more advice.


Good luck.

I'm trying to fix a gateway MFATXNIN NMZ 500SE


Sir,
  1. Press and hold the power button down for 10 seconds.
  2. Make sure that the power and hard disk light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are on.
  3. Check the power cable connections:
    • From the electrical outlet to the AC adapter.
    • If applicable, make sure the LED on the AC Adapter lights.
    • From the AC adapter to the notebook.
    • Make sure that the power strip is on.
    • Make sure that the surge protector is on.

  4. Try another electrical outlet.
  5. Disconnect any external devices, like PC cards, digital cameras, or external drives.
  6. Disconnect the notebook from the docking station (if applicable). Remove any power strips and surge protectors. Plug the power cord directly from the notebook into the electrical outlet.
  7. Remove the battery and reinstall the battery. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook.
  8. Remove any newly installed software or hardware.
  9. Remove any additional memory. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook for memory removal instructions.
  10. Shut down the computer, and then remove the drives. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook.
  11. Push the hardware reset (if applicable). Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook.

Acer laptop shut of during power outage .


From the Acer website:

Issue
Power Issues or Will not Boot
Solution
If the notebook does not power on:

Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.

If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a ‘power reset' of the notebook.
  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

Lenovo 3000 Notebooks : N100 Power Failure!


Hi.. I have a temporary solution to your problem. I had the same problem. Remove the battery and the ac adapter from the laptop. Just reconnect the ac adapter without the battery and switch on the lap. Presto.. Problem solved.. It doesnt power off anymore unless u remove the ac adaptor. Usefull if u hav needed files n want 2 create a backup. Still i havent found out a permanent solution to this problem. I suspect its a motherboard fault

Hi when i turn my ACER 5315 LAPTOP on it runs for 5-10secs before turning off again please help thanks


Hi,


We can try some work around to narrow down the issue.

I think your notebook might be getting power from the Ac adapter. The remaining power in the battery might be giving power for few seconds and trning OFF again.

To check this, once remove the battery from the notebook and turn on the laptop with only AC adapter.

If there is no power at all, then what I guess is correct. Issue might be with the AC adapter or with the power jack on the motherboard.

If the notebook turns ON even with the Ac adapter and turned off aftetr few seconds without battery, then you have to contact service center as it could be the hardware issue.
