Maybe your motherboard is fried. If you know for a fact that the power cord is good and that the DC Jack on the motherboard is good but nothing is happening then the board is just gone.
When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.
Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.
Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
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
When you take the battery out, don't just put it back in, leave it out and press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds then put the battery back in and try turning the laptop on by the power button. If it still will not power up after that you may have RAM / motherboard and CPU issues which can be hard to diagnose without extra parts laying around.
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.
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, Lee
fix first the power adapter/ it not charging some problem of your power adpater,, check the charger if it is working properly or not, then follow by dc connector should know that your dc connector has no deffect// if its okay check the motherbaord of your pc maybe som chips need to replace or damage...ic capacitor fause..ech..
Does the battery accept a charge from the another laptop ?, the only way you will know if this is happening is to run the battery down till it warns the laptop it is failing and them plug it into the other machine
If the battery re-charges then it is fine, if not you need to replace it
If your machine works with the AC but the battery stays flat then you have a fault on the onboard circuit that trickle charges the battery and you need a techie
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!
