That's fairlt simple. It's broke. If not, there could be something loose between the port and the board.

We have a ASUS X83Vb laptop. The computer is no longer accepting the charge from the adapter. The adapter works fine with a green light, but once it is plugged into the computer, the light flickers or...


If you remove the battery does the Laptop power on? If the answer is yes then the adapter is fine and the battery needs replacing. They generally last for about 2-3 years and then they die. If it is under warranty then return it to the seller and they will replace the faulty components.

Thanking you

Battery back-up doesn't hold power...


there are 3 possible reasons why you are having this type of problem.
  1. The power source or outlet might be having a partial contact. try to plug your UPS into another wall outlet socket (Not an extension socket). observe the behavior. if it persists, try to change your UPS power cable (It might have short circuit somewere that is not allowing the UPS to charge properly) If this fails too, try the next step.
  2. The solid yellow light means 2 things. either you have a problem with your batery or your battery is dead and needs a complete replacement.
  3. Either way, get another battery and try it out. Before you change your battery, try using the UPS on another PC and observe the behavior. the fault might be from your PC. if you observe the same thing, then you may need to get another battery. Cheers!

Problem with emachine m5124 startup


Take the battery out and unplug the power cord. Press down the power button continuously for a solid 30 seconds without stopping. This drains all the power out of the circuits and resets whatever invalid state your computer is in.

Now, leave the battery out but plug in the AC and turn on the laptop. If it works, turn it off again and insert the battery. All should be well.

Laptop will not turn on.


plug it into the wall , most newer laptops will have a power boost while plugged into AC.
check your power cable receptical on the back of the laptop, these are notorious for getting loose.
check the cable on the ac adaptor, these are bad for getting breaks that you cant see in them (run your hand down the cable physically and fell for any breaks while unplugged, then do it again plugged in and watch for lights to flicker on the computer.
look for the power light on the laptop to come on when you plug the adaptor in. if you get a light on the adaptor and on the computer, then the adaptor isnt the issue.
the next step is checking the power button and power supply.. post what your results are here and we'll move to the next step if not resolved.
Regards!

I just replaced the battery and power cord on my Compaq Presario 900 US Laptop, I plug in the power cord, the green light comes on, but the battery light just flashes, and I can't turn the computer on. ...


Try laptop without battery first to see if powers on. Could be memory issue of battery as might have been off for a while. Place battery back in if starts up. Then see if charging up and if computer switches on or off.
If fails again, unplug power and battery and open underneath the where the memory is located and try to unplug memory and plug back in. Try power supply then. If works, great! If not, you will have to take into a service center to check inside if motherboard or battery need replacing.

The flashing light on the front of your laptop is a low battery warning. There probably isn't enough power in the battery to turn on the laptop. You need to plug in the ac power adaptor and let the battery charge until the battery light turns from 'orange', to 'green'.
