One possibility is that the plugs where the battery is attached are scr...d up. Try to check them and see if there is any obvious problem... If not, there might be a short-circuit somewhere near the battery (in the laptop, not in the battery..)

Dont know what make of lead i needadaptor and power lead for elonex windows xp which do i need


Need more info.

Right now you are in the Laptop PC category.

It looks as though you may need info for a Desktop PC.

After you post more info, we will get this straightened out.

Post the computer manufacturer name, and model number.

The model number for a desktop computer, can be found on the back of the computer; near the Windows product key.
Or up on the side of the computer tower.

The model number can be found on the Bottom of a laptop.

Please post back in a Comment.

WHAT a minute! Click!

Elonex laptop computer?
USA dude here, and I almost missed that.

OK, now I need the model number.
Also wish more reference to what power lead you are referring to, and what adapter?

AC adapter (Charger)?

Plug adapter for the power cord on AC adapter?
May I ask what country you are in?

Please post back in a Comment.

My laptop will not switch on, i have ordered a new power lead and it worked for a month, there are no lights coming on it just seems dead it was purchased july 2009 for christmas 2009 and first stopped...

Its a common issue for DELL systems. I recommend you request a MOTHERBOARD/AC /POWER CORD replacement .They can send a technician for you or send it to a depot repair.

I lost my power cord to asus laptop, and my laptop wont charge with other power cords, so do I need to just buy a new power cord? or because it wont power up is there something wrong with my laptop?

You will need to buy another power cord for the exact model of your laptop. You can either find it in local computer stores, or you can search for it on (usually search by laptop make & model, & usually buy from a top seller).

Hi my hp 6735s laptop has just started turning itself off when knocked or moved slightly. When you try and power back up the orange light around where the power lead plugs into the laptop flashes about 10...

Check the power cord at the connector. Hp has a problem with the cords breaking internally. I had a problem with mine and found that if I played with the cord then it worked for a while. I ended up buying a new power supply.

Battery dead in my HP laptop will not start with power cord

take out the battery and try to start the computer with it plugged in using the power lead. If this owkrs without the battery being in then the power lead is fine. If this doesnt work it could possibly be the power lead or the power supply inside the laptop. Does the power lead converter (the black box half way down the lead) get warm when plugged in for a while, if so the power supply is probably the fault

Power cord was chewed by puppy..i spliced cord but laptop wont power up. is there a fuse or something that could have shorted?

These power cords are very sensitive and shielded. A bad power cord can have very serious effects and damage to the hardware of the laptop, especially the motherboard. They can be bought on E-bay and other sites for less than 30 a 300 dollar motherboard bill.

My r3000 has a tempermental power supply. it

whatabout the lead that plugs into the laptop ? does the plug in the laptop move easily, with the lead in, Sounds like the actual plug in the laptop is breaking away, the solder around the connector. Sadly to fix that you will have to get it repaired for about £50 to £70, maybe more ?? please make sure the lead from power supply is not loose or a bad fitting.

DC power inside computer will not charge battery.

About 99% of the time the DC female adapter is soldered to the motherboard making it near impossible to fix. Getting solder on anything would ruin the motherboard.

It is possible that it is your Power Cord and not the jack on the motherboard. Same problem I had a few weeks go with a clients laptop. You may want to buy a new Power Cord, and try that before you go out and have to get a new motherboard (which can be VERY costly, or even buying a new laptop).

Post the model number of your laptop and I can direct you somewhere to get a good deal on a new power cord.
