You may have to use the battery and the ac adapter at the same time. it could be that your battery is not yet charged that's why its not working.

if you want to know if there's something wrong with one of the components of your system..you can try this...

turn your computer on with just the ac adapter plugged in - if working then try both ac adapter and battery.

if your system will not turn on with just the ac adapter plugged in, it could be there's something wrong with the ac adapter or with the motherboard of the system

Power schemes battery


Chances are that your battery doesn't / wouldn't hold a charge anymore. The laptop runs off battery power. When it is plugged in, the AC power "goes right through the battery", to support the laptop's operations. When the power cord is unplugged, and the battery doesn't hold a charge, the laptop will shut down, as your battery is (too) low to continue supporting the laptop's operations.

The easiest way around this problem is to get a new battery for the laptop.
If your battery is (quite) new (and a Lithium battery), you may wish to see if you can "revive" the battery's "life" ... first by depleting the battery (completely), then charging it (until it shows it is full, plus a couple more hours), and repeating this process a few times. If you're lucky, the battery will slowly/gradually start to hold some charge, but, don't expect it to be very long.
The (preferred) way to use re-chargeable batteries is to charge it fully, unplug it from the external power source, use it until it is depleted, then plug in the external power source to charge it up (fully) again .... and NOT to keep it on a power source all the time.

Dell inspiron mini 10 won't charge or boot up


Lesson 1: Never, ever buy a computer that does not have a cd drive on it because one day the thing is going to croak and you'll need that drive.

However, your problem sounds like either the power cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where you plug the power cord into the laptop is bad.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.


Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.


Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

It shut down automatily


Shuts down when? Immediately when you start trying to boot it? And if nothing ever posts on the lcd screen your problem is either the memory or the video card most likely.

Acer Extensa 5230E laptop not charging


More than likely you need to check your DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. If it is loose or broken, it will not charge the battery and will not boot.

Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Laptop crashes and wont keep charged battery


Crashes when? What are you doing when it crashes? When it crashes does it boot right back up or do you have to wait a while then it will boot back up?

The laptop might be running hot or has a virus, but you'll need to answer the questions above to really isolate what is going on.

As for the battery not charging, either the Power Cord is bad or the battery is bad. If the power cord is good, it would normally charge the battery unless the battery is dead. Batteries only have a useful life and last for so long, then they have to be replaced.

Maybe your DC Power Jack where the Power Cord plugs into the laptop is bad. That would cause the laptop to crash (shut down) and it would also keep the battery from charging.

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \


Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

My Sony laptop is not charging when it is pluged in on to the electric oulet


If the battery is not charging when the power cord is plugged in then the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.

Are you sure your power cord is good and that you are not operating on battery power?

Take the battery out and see if the laptop stays on. Or you can reboot with the battery out and the power cord in. If it fails that means the Power Cord is the issue and you were working off the battery.

If you leave the power cord off and insert the battery, then reboot. If it boots up and stays up that means the battery has some charge in it. If it does not boot up or boots and shuts down, the battery is drained and you will need another one if the power cord is good and it's not charging.

Son ran battery to zero after he broke power cord, now won't boot


Couple of things

First is to let it charge with the lid down for a few hours.
If that does not fix it then check that your son did not use the alternate display option FN F5 or FN F6 on the acers I think

If you still have no luck you might want to ask questions of your son before you take it to a repair shop
