Sounds like the power supply in the computer is shot, may need to replace it. They are cheap now to replace, it is a do-it-yourself job. Go on google and search for "Power Supply Replacement Directions".

Message keeps popplng up about low battery and then shuts off..am i suppose to get new battery and if where..thank you


Hello.

Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues 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.

Where to purchase a new battery depends on your particular location.

You can order a new battery through your laptop's manufacturer or a local computer store or computer supplier.

Hope this helps.

Computer was on AC power. Left unattended it shut down. Would not wakeup. Shut down fully, it would not come back up. Get a 2 short beep code. Invites an F1 to go to setup. Won't go to setup. Screen then...


Can you tell if your AC power cord is working? (Is there a light on the computer that comes on when it's charging?) If the power pack went dead, your battery could've died and now you get no power to the PC which is why it won't boot up.

To test, take out the battery and plug the AC cord in and try to boot up. If nothing at all happens without the battery, then your power cord or power pack is dead, and you just need to replace it.

My inspiron 1000 laptop from dell won't turn on. The adapter cord is not getting hot. I was defragging the computer when it shut off. Is this the adapter cord?


Hello there:
ok the first thing that i would suggest is to remove the battery and unplug the power cord from the computer
now check the area that the battery connects to and get a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and clean the contact areas where the battery connects to the computer at really good and let dry
next if the computer has a reset hole on the back of it use a toothpick or somthing small and press in on the reset for 2 min and than release than press and hold in on the computers power on button for one minute and release now plug in only the power cord and turn on the computer and it should now start
than after it does put the battery in and let charge for a min of 30 min
than you should be ok from there ok
Please feel free to post a comment to me if you still have problems ok
Hope all of this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Shutting off


i have the same problem...laptop randomly shuts down, but its even done it within a minute of turning it on so i don't think its a heat issue. Sometimes it'll run for over an hour with no problem and never shut down, but other times it randomly shuts down sometimes within a minute, sometimes maybe 10 mins, sometimes 30 mins or more ...its maddening! i'd love to find a solution if anyone's found one. Thanks.
