Is there a power indicator light on the laptop? If so , is it on when the adapter's light is on and plugged into the laptop? If not, try gently moving the computer end of the plug on the adapter while it's all plugged in. If the power indicator on the laptop flashes briefly or comes on you have an issue with a loose power connection in the laptop and need to have it serviced . this is a very common issue with laptops that are frequently plugged in and unplugged as the motion promoted lose plugs and solder.
also the laptop could be in hibernate mode and holding the power button on the laptop down for about 7 seconds should wake it.
If still no power i would suspect the power supply and aagain i would take it and have it serviced at this point.. ALWAYS CHECK THE WARRANTEE BEFORE YOU SERVICE SOMETHING YOURSELF
Post again here if i can assist you further
Please rate if this solves your issue

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.

I have a advent 7201.it will not come on on its own and it will not come on when the charger is plugged in.the green light is on on the charger but no power on the laptop.could it be the battery or th


Use a multimeter.

An economical unit can be purchased for as little as $8 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Analog or digital is fine.

The Red probe lead is the Positive lead. Plug it into the hole with the red circle, on the multimeter.

The Black probe lead is the Negative lead. Plug it into the hole circled with a black ring., on the multimeter.

The center knob is the Function knob.
Set it to DC Voltage.
If just a symbol is shown, set it to the dotted line over a solid line symbol.

If there is more than one DC Voltage scale, set it to the 0 - 50 Volt scale.

The plug of the AC adapter (Charger) that plugs into the laptop, has a center hole, and an outside cylindrical metal shell.

The center hole is Positive.
The outer cylindrical metal shell is Negative.

Positive probe lead to the center hole, then touch the Negative probe leads to the cylindrical metal shell.

You should be reading 19 Volts, or VERY close to it.

Also have an assistant gently wiggle this cable, while you are testing.
Have them wiggle the power cable TO AC adapter, also.

An intermittent reading indicates a broken wire, or wires. Discard AC adapter, obtain a good one.

The port on the laptop that the AC adapter (Charger) plugs into, is the DC Power Jack.

AC adapter checks out it's on to the DC Power Jack.
Post in a Comment if you wish to go on with the diagnosis.

Yes! it is very possible, specs are different in none original power adapters, because it sounds like the charging circuits are working. I recommend getting the original adapter for your model.

Hi,
I would suggest you to check with a different adapter, first.
You don't have to buy a new adapter for that.
Try to borrow from someone who has a compatible adapter.

Advent 7113 doesn't detect mains


It is highly posible that the jack in your laptop where you plug the main dapter is making a false contcat due to a problem in the welding of its connectors to the main board or to corrosion. Check if the rentral plug is not loose or if the plugs seems to be loose when you plug it.
If it is so, you need some expert technician to solve the problem by re weilding it or replacing it.

Advent 9912 wont turn on


remove the ac adapter
take the battery out
be sure nothing is connected with your laptop
then press and hold the power button for 60 secs to drain static as it is the most probable reason laptops stops working.
then connect the ac adapter only and without the battery try powering on the system
if it powers on
you can again shut it down
insert the battery
it should surely power on
