Check the socket where the adapter plugs in to the laptop, and see if the central pin is there or if it is bent.

Connected to the AC socket, but no reaction from the laptop. The charging indicator and DC indicator is not burning.


First remove the pattery if possible and see if that makes a difference. If it does, your battery is bad.If not, put the battery back in.Either swap a different compatible AC adapter to test to see if the problem is with the AC adapter or the computer, or else get a voltage meter and manually test the voltage of the power supply. If it is the AC adapter, replace it. If the power supply is good, it may be the socket where it plugs into the laptop. Is it loose? If you have come this far in my instructions and haven't found the problem, it is probably something internal to the laptop, and you would be better taking it to a professional repair person instead of taking it apart yourself. Just judging by the fact that you are coming to FixYa for advice.

My dell pa 12 won?t start ?


When i start my dell pa 12up and it takes 10 mins to load to windows XP, , when the windowsloading screen comes up the FANS go crazy. I then wait till i’m at thedesktop at which point i immediately shut down the pa 12(which takes afurther 7 mins) while the FANs are going crazy.

answer :

Now if i start the pa 12 again it works normally.

I had to do this procedure everyday, untill today when i switched the pa 12 on, waited till the desktop appaered and i removed the battery while the pa 12 was on..

Now when i switch the pa 12 on it powers up but i’m not getting anything on the screen

First try a different AC adapter (such as :pa 10 ac adapter)

If no change then the issue is the motherboard. Often the AC adapter will fail then the battery discharges and you get the symptoms youdescribe.
SO AC adapter then MB

It shows no power on your laptop but it shows you the dvd player led comes on then off.

I would suggest try the following:

1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well.

2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Pressand hold on the laptop’s power button for 10 seconds to drain the powerflea.

3. Connect the AC Adapter to a known good power outlet, check ACAdapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not makinga bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet.

4. Connect now the AC Adapter (hp dv6000 ac adapter)tothe laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected tothe laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the ACAdapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptopAC socket if it is loose.

5. If laptop AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try topower on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboardproblem.

6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs todo. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this whenlaptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptopCMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails thenreplace motherboard. I hope this helps.

I bot a hp mini laptop recently.. ws working well..bt sddnly it ws nt chrgng ystrday and showed cross sign over battery in control panel.. why is it nt chrgn and wht to do?


If the laptop is still working when it is plugged in , then the ac adapter is good and the battery is just bad. If the laptop will not work when it is plugged in then more than likely the ac adapter is bad.

2 months ago ive bought new charger...cause there was a fault with my previous one. It might also be a socket on laptop, so ive fixed both of it!but in the recent time,something went wrong...my charger...


Turn everything off. Take off the battery. Connect the ac adapter and turn on your computer. If it works with the ac adapter connected and your battery off then you have a defective battery.

If it does not work then it's either your ac adapter or your dc jack inside your computer. Try a different ac adapter at the store you bought the battery and you'll know if your adapter is bad. If it works with another adapter then exchange the adapter again (I know, I know, I've been there). If it does not work with another adapter then you're back to the dc jack but at least you'll know for sure.

Make sure that whoever is replacing the dc jack is good at soldering and replaces it not just solders the same one back on. Don't forget the shield to the dc jack. Good luck!

Cannot get my computer to turn on


remove all external peripherals. remove laptop battery. remove ac adapter.
plug ac adapter to wall power socket without the laptop connected check if the ac adapter led will stays on. if yes then connect it to the laptop and check if the ac adapter led turns off. if yes motherboard laptop has problems and need to be replaced.
if ac adapter led stays off without connecting laptop, try different wall power socket, if still ac adapter led is off then replace the ac adapter.
if ac adapter has light stays on then connected to laptop but laptop cannot even power up even the ac adapter led is on then laptop motherboard needs to be replace.

No power at all and power supply and battery are good


Hello,

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to issue with notebook that seems to do not start at all. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.

Please try below solutions on the issue.

Solution 1: Power Drain
----------------------------------

1. Make sure that pc in OFF and then disconnect the Power cable from Wall oulet
2. And then try to remove the Battery from Pc, then let the Notebook idle for 1 minute.
3. Then make sure that there is no power and battery, then try to Press and hold Power button of PC for 30 seconds,  and then release power Buttsn of Pc after 30 seconds. This should release the Static Power that is located in PC
4. Then reconnect the Battery and then powerr cable, then try to power ON PC, and check the issue.

I hope that this should start the PC, if the issue still persists then try the next solution.

  I guess that there could be an fault with PC power Adapter or with Power Cord, try to check for damage on the Power Adapter or on Power cord . If they are fine, please try to disconnect them and reconnect it firmly and check the issue. You can also try to isolate the issue by connecting the PC in another wall outlet  and checkk out the issue.

Solution 2:
---------------

Check whether If Notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, when AC adapter is connected.
 
Power indicator light (LED) is off
If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:
  1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet. NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
  2. Check all of the following connections:
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the wall outlet.
    • The connection into the power adapter from the wall outlet.
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook.
  3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
  4. If the power indicator does not turn on, remove the AC power adapter from the notebook PC and re-insert the battery. Then press the power button. If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.
