Computer will not turn on. when power button is pushed, battery and power cord lights flash on and off. Plugging in does not help. How can I make my computer work again?


Try doing this:

1. Remove the battery and unplug the computer.
2. While there is no power connected, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
3. Plug the computer back in, but don't insert the battery yet
4. See if it will turn on now, and if it does, insert the battery again.

Sometimes this works to drain some residual power that is still inside the machine. I've done this on a couple of machines and it has resulted in them starting up fine. If this doesn't work, you may have a more serious problem and need to have it looked at by a technician.

Tip

Most replaced laptop part


Here is the number one part that I and many others who do this for a living get called on for laptop/notebooks.
The power connector jack. Thats the little hole where you plug in the line to the computer when not running on a battery. It will break with only a small amount of preassure exerted on it. Do not pull the chord out from the power chord itself, it will eventually weaken the connector either inside "worse" or outside. And then you are looking at a $150-200.00, repair bill. I know a tech who just does this, and averages 3 to 4 per day. You must take the power jack out from the connector with your fingers or eventually it will happen to most machines. There are only two or three little wires soldered to the inside holding that female part on. So do yourself a favor and do not put stress on that wire or you will end up spending good money to fix it, I have spoken to at least 3 peple this week here with the same problem, good luck and hope we helped you

Just to understand your problem your laptop is working properly when plugged directly to the power cord but not when running only on battery? Then it sounds like you need to replace the battery.
thank you,

My sons razor E300 duns only at about 2 mph on a full charge. Its only been use MAYBE 20 hours over last 1.5 years and has never had any problems til now. The brake is not overly tight, the chain is lubed...


Dead battery. You must follow the proper battery maintenance procedures in order to prevent that from happening. Most likely the battery has sat for an extended period of time and has dried out.

Actually my mobile battery is draining very fast even i am not using my mobile just except accepting the calls on my phone Even im closing all the applications properly im fully charging my mobile it shows...


Does the phone usually gets hot before the battery runs down?

Try changing the battery, maybe the battery cell is weak.

Let me know what happens after changing the battery, so that I might direct you further.

Take care.

For laptop: Toshiba Satellite A105: My battery won't charge/computer won't turn on when plugged in. No lights show when plugged in. Don't know if it's a problem with the chord or the computer. Don't want...


Start by trying another power outlet.

The power adapter should have its own light. If it doesn't light up then the adaper is bad. Kensington.com sells very inexpensive universal power adapters. You might also find a good deal on eBay.

If the adapter lights up then it may be your battery. Notebook batteries are only good for 2-3 years. If you let them sit for a long time without a charge they may only last 1-2 years.

Vote for this solution if it helps.

Magellan 2200T will not accept charge


Well, I am not sure if your problem is the same as mine. My unit stopped working as well after about 1.5 years.

I opened it up, thinking the battery might be a goner. But after opening it up and checking the battery with a voltmeter, it looked good.

On re-connecting the battery, everything worked fine...loose contact maybe? Its been working fine so far.

Dell Latitude D600 won't accept charger


Had the same problem, My other Dell charger would work fine but the original one that came with this laptop would throw an error message that the Charger wasnt recognized. None of the suggestions on the forums worked.
I held the chord by the circular flex thing at the end, and pushed in the power pin with force into the laptop, held it for a few seconds and now it works fine. If you push the pin slow and gently into the laptop, it doesnt recognize the adapter. I think the problem is either with the power chord connections inside or with the adapter inside the laptop. Try it!
