My hp pavilion dv6-2117ax laptop won't power up (no power light on where adaptor meets laptop). Replaced power adaptor / charger and laptop powered up and operated for a day and then next day woul

The laptop probably isn't charging. Could be a bad d/c connector on the laptop or the battery is bad. Remove the battery and plug in the a/c adapter and see if it powers on. Wiggle the a/c plug in gently while pressing the power button on the laptop. It powers on and off briefly then I'd say it's the d/c jack on the laptop, bad sodder joint.

Just bought this at BJ's yesterday. No User Guide. Plugged into laptop and the fan does not come on yet.

Assuming you plugged the power adapter into the laptop and after pressing the power button you have no fan, lights, nothing on the screen.

This could be several issues and sadly most are cheap or easy to fix.

1. Your adapter is bad and needs to be replaced.
2. Your DC jack on the motherboard is damaged (broken solder or pins), DC jack needs to be re soldered or motherboard replaced.
3. Motherboard is bad, needs to be replaced.
4. Battery is bad, remove battery and attempt to power the laptop on with just the adapter plugged in.

Most of the replacement parts can be found on eBay for reasonable prices. The battery and adapter can be tested easily with a multimeter and repalced pretty easy by anyone. The motherboard / jack problem are generally several hundred dollars in repairs from most tech shops.

Honestly I would return the laptop if you have that option available.

Hi my dell inspiron 1520 not starting when power button is switched on..the power light blinks and goes off..and the system doesnt start. I had shown the laptop ito dell service center and they have...


The most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

But, if you paid for the Dell service, Dell needs to fix the problem. Sounds like they replaced the motherboard with another faulty one.

Hope this helps.

One thing to check is to see if the WORPGROUP name is the same.

On your laptop, Right Click on My Computer and go to properties.
Click the Computer Name Tab and compare it with your Dells.
If it's the same then you might want to directly connect your laptop to the router and see if it can recognize it that way.
If all else fails, you can reset the router.

Hope this helps!

Emachine Turns Off

This is the best way to tell. If your system is shutting down on you by behaving like your shutting it down thru windows then it could be a spyware, virus trojan issue going on. If thats the case then run your virus program and see what it finds and remove it. If your laptop is shutting down on you where everything turns off right away with no lights, kind of like a power outage then go ahead and remove the battery and only use the ac adapter and see if that solves the problem. If it does solve the problem then you know its your battery that is the culprit. If your only using the ac adapter and the machine shuts off on you like a power outage with no lights then you know its a problem with the motherboard. With just the ac adapter plugged in, wiggle the cord near where it plugs into the laptop and if it shuts off on you like a power outage then you know its a loose DC Jack and it needs to be resoldered back into place. Hope all this helps.

Acer Aspire 5920-6864 Is not turned on

this probleme is common among acer 5920, the probleme is with the motherboard that's of bad quality and workmanship. Acer should be ashamed to sell a PC with a faulty motherboard and should compensate all 5920's owners or replace with a better motherboard. 1000's if not millions are having the same probleme wich tell to anyone with a brain that Acer 5920 is a scam. good luck. x
