Question about Computers & Internet

My laptop was working fine and then the ac adapter stopped charging, so i bought a brand new one. My laptop still does not turn on or give any response to a charge, even when i take the battery out to see if the battery is dead. My laptop is only a year old and i would really love to know what is wrong with it.

The common causes are:
Bad Power adaptor
Bad charge connector (on laptop motherboard)
Bad Battery

If you already have replaced your power adaptor (ac), try replacing the battery and see if the new battery start to charging or keep the charge, if not you will have to replace the charge connector located on your motherboard.

It is a problem with connection. You need to check with your hardware vendor

Advent modena m200 will not turn on or charge.


Connect the AC power adapter to the laptop and confirm that the AC power indicator is on (I wish you stated the brand of laptop). If the AC power indicator is not on, try and get a working AC power adapter for your laptop and connect it to your laptop.

With the AC power adapter connected, you can power on your laptop. If the laptop powers on from the OS you can see if the Battery is charging or not.
If the laptop does not power with the AC power adapter connected, then the power port of the laptop is bad.

However, if all these are okay and the battery still does not charge, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.

NEW Battery not properly charging


Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

My laptop charger light is blinking. i just got a brand new ac adapter. didn't use it for 2 weeks. is it just charging or is the ac adapter defective.


Hi

It means that the charge is not compatible with your laptop model or AC charger is faulty. I suggest you return it to the shops for free replacement and it would be better to bring with you your laptop. To give more precise AC adapter for your computer. Regards

Is the AC Power adapter the original adapter of the laptop? If it is, try to drain the battery and charge it for 8-12 hours without using or opening the laptop just charge it. After charging, remove the power adapter as you open your laptop. Make this way a habbit of using and charging your laptop to make the charging and battery life last long.

Will Not charge with brand new a/ power cord it will at times power on if moved the right way but quickly powers off if moved the port inside looks to be fine But I hear there is a pin type thing inside...


The problem is with the AC adapter itself and is a very common problem with Dell AC adapters. My suggestion would be to get an aftermarket AC adapter that can be purchased on eBay as the Dell adapter is around 100.00. You can pick up an aftermarket one on eBay for around 20.00. The problem is a resistor inside the AC adapter that senses when a Dell branded adapter is inserted. What happens is that the resistor will get damaged and since it doesn't recognize the charger as a Dell branded one anymore it won't charge. However it will still run the laptop as long as it's connected. A lot of aftermarket AC adapters bypass this function and work perfectly fine.

Not charging


which green light?

light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

Battery doesn't stay charged


The problem is with the battery. All Lithium batteries last for around 1000 charges or so. Since the laptop is 2-years old the battery needs to be replaced.
I Hope this solves your problem. Kindly Accept my solution.

Compaq EVO N400C PC Notebook Problem brought new battery! fully charged all night! turn laptop on within one second the thing turns off! AC works fine! new battery! old laptop! what can i do, please help?


your laptop should function even without a battery. Remove the battery you just bought and see if only with AC adapter, would your laptop turn on?

If not, then try removing the memory and see using a pencil eraser, clean the contacts of the memory and see if you can power your laptop with only ac
