There are tons of cheap a/c adapters on the net. Auction sites and E-markets. Be more specific what is the model number or serial number of your PC. (Actually PC desktops does not need a/c adapters they are connected with power chord.) Battery for the motherboard is also easily findable. Take the old one to the nearest watch store, hand it over to the salesman, he'll give you a brand new one. (If you have a laptop instead of desktop you'll need to send the model number to figure out the right battery...)

Dell vostro 3500 shows battery connected but not charging and intermittently shoes no battery detected


Instructions

1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.

Tha half moon light blinks green,standby light also blinks with battery light orange light when charger is connected to my thinkpad t61p ,no booting


Step 1:
Try removing the battery from the back and then running it directly through the AC adapter. Sometimes the battery and AC adapter have conflicts and it can cause a laptop to become inoperable.

If this doesn't fix the problem in any way, I would recommend trying a new battery or AC adapter.
hope this helps Take the battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works. If it works, the battery may be the problem. Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop. Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity. If that light isn't on, try a different outlet. Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it. If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing. Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery. Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection. Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement.

XPS M1210 Laptop not powering up


No Power Issues on Laptops

There are 3 things to consider in order for you to determine a No Power Issue

1. Battery
2. Mother Board
3. AC Adapter


1. Remove the battery from the laptop

2. Disconnect all non essential cables (external hard drive, usb memory key, printer...etc.)just connect the AC Adapter

3. Take out the Battery....Usually there is a battery indicator that you can push at the back of the battery

4. By Now the battery power indicator should be full since it was never taken out

5. If still theres no light on the battery.... replace battery

6. Turn the laptop on without the battery

7. If the computer still did not turned on check the AC Adapter if there is light coming out

8. If there's no light that comes out from the AC Adapter. Reseat the cable from the AC Adapter to the Cord

9. Check if there is no light that comes out from the AC Adapter. AC adapter needs to be replaced

10. Otherwise the Mother Board needs replacing

My lenovo x 60 tablet battery shows 0% available, not charging. I have got a new battery and it still shows the same message. can u provide a solution


Hi deepak_nangi,

There are two possible reasons why you are getting 0% available, not charging prompt even if you already got a new battery. It couls be an AC adapter issue or the DC In. Kindly follow the basic troubleshooting below that will help you isolate the issue:

1. Remove the battery from your system and use the AC adapter alone. If your system is not charging using the charger alone, then it's already defective and needed replacement.

2. You may also try using your AC adapter with other system where it is compatible. If it will work with other laptop then the issue is the DC In.

3. The DC In is the port where you are plugging in your AC Adapter. It is buit in to *********** board. If the DC In is loosed your system will not be charged as well. If this will be the case then the mother board needs replacement.

Doing these steps will help you determine the cause of the problem.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

My gateway laptop note book, will not power up, I have checked the cord, battery etc. Went to turn it on one day and no power? someone mentioned that it over heated?


First of all, take the battery off and try to turn it on with the ac adapter (power cord) connected. If it comes up without the battery then it's your battery.

If it doesn't turn on without the battery and with just the ac adapter, try a different ac adapter. You can find one to try at your local pc shop or electronics store. If it comes up with another ac adapter then all you need to do is purchase an ac adapter at the store or order one online (cheaper).

If it still doesn't come on then it's either your dc jack or your motherboard. Normally if it's just the dc jack it will turn on or attempt to turn on when you wiggle the connecter in the ac adapter connection. If it's your dc jack it's relatively inexpensive to purchase online. The problem comes with having to take apart the laptop, desoldering the old and soldering the new dc jack, and putting the computer back together.

Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

My laptop starts to shut down within 20 mintues being on it. my battery don't hold up either, it gets to hot. i've tried a cooling pad also


Good day.
You haven't mention how old is your laptop. Laptop battery operating hours diminished as it gets old. This is just normal for the type of battery being used in our laptop (also in cellular phones). If your laptop is really that old, there is a need to buy a new battery pack, Just be sure of the brand/model before your buy.
In some cases, the cause of your problem is in the charger or the charging mechanism. You may test your charger/adapter using voltmeter for the actual voltage reading and comparing this to the rating stated in the outer case of the adapter. If you observed a discrepancy in the reading, then buy new adapter.

Just let me know if you need some more help.
Good luck.

Power outlet does not work


Assuming you mean the AC adapter, it could either be the adapter or the power jack.
Try using your battery. If no power with that then its possible its the motherboard. If it works with the battery and not the adapter then try wiggling the wire on the adapter while powering on. Mine had a short within the adapter's wire, about 1 foot away from the tip of the adapter. I ordered a new adapter and it solved my problem.

also if you could be more specific as to what your problem is and any errors, etc, it would be more helpful.

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
