    I had the same problem, in addition, the touchpad and keyboard would not work. Everything did work in safe-mode. Since the battery was a crappy one anyway, I solved the problem by removing the battery and using the laptop as a desktop.

My IBM Thinkpad won't turn on after improper shutdown.


Always check power supply first. Ensure green/orange charging light appears in the LED bank near the screen bottom when adapter is plugged in. If NOT then charger or battery (or motherboard) is faulty.
A dead battery shouldn't cause a shutdown, so the charger is the first suspect. The yellow power socket can become 'rusty' in some cases so inspect this also. If the contacts inside aren't clean & shiny then try some WD40 after scraping gently with a 1 or 2mm flatblade screwdriver (with the battery OUT). If not even a P.O.S.T. (Power On Self Test - IBM logo)
appears with the CDROM and Hard Drive removed, Try cleaning the memory and swapping its position on the back of the unit. Good Luck.

HP DV1000 won't run normal after a forced shutdown


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:
1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

I have a laptop satellite m305d-s4831& battery model PA 3634u-1BRS. My battery is not detect show in taskbar icon but battery icon is show red color in laptop and it is not work battery power, not...


Sounds like the cells inside of the battery went bad. Try another known good working battery, if the red X goes away on the battery then you know the original battery is bad. If the red x stays on the new battery then that means either your power adapter is bad, which you can try replacing that as well because it might not be putting out the correct voltages to charge the battery. If that doesn't work then the motherboard is bad for sure.

Hp pavilion dv-7-1245dx --keep shutting down after a few seconds


If the computer's battery is bad it won't stay on. If the fan is plugged up and over heats quickly, then the computer will shut itself down. I would start with those. Wouldn't be bad to check that your memory chips are in securely as well.

My hp pavillion dv9000 has a black screen and i think it's because of improper shutdown? help


Hello,

Try to use the following steps to reset hardware:

1 Disconnect the battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Connect the charger (don't connect the battery yet) and try to start by pressing the power button.


If the problem remains, the next step will be to re-seat memory modules.


Thanks

Plug in not charging


There are several factors why this situation happens. It could be improper use of the power adapter or because the battery is not being cared correctly. On the other hand, exercising the performance of battery sometimes by draining it completely before charging it again is a good method of prolonging the battery life. If you noticed that the battery is not charging, always check first the power outlet if it is live or not before doing serious investigation.If the wall socket is not the cause of laptop battery charging failure, the following troubleshooting tips might help you.
1. Check if the AC adapter is bad or not. Detach the battery from the laptop and turn on the computer with the power plug connected. If the laptop does not turn on, try using another power adapter to verify if the first one is defective. If the second trial does not work as well, the problem might be the power circuit of the motherboard. Look for a certified computer technician to help you solve the issue.
2. If the computer does turn on, the power adapter is in good condition and not the cause the problem. In this case, try placing another battery that meets the technical specifications of the laptop for proper testing. If the second battery works well, it can be concluded that the first one is defective.
3. Determine if the problem is not caused by a software related issue. If the notebook battery status is not being displayed correctly though software, it can be considered that the software is causing the problem and not really the battery.
4. Power reset the unit by unplugging it and removing the battery. After doing that, hold the power button down for a minute. Then, attach the battery and power adapter, and start the laptop again. This method is being done to ensure that the motherboard is not holding power anymore when the battery went down causing a "hiccup" in the system. This may solve the charging failure of the battery.
5. If the battery stops charging every time the charge indicator reaches 96-98%, the laptop may need to be recalibrated for a new battery. For proper notebook recalibration, the Windows power management should be configured to prevent the system from going into sleep mode or hibernation when the battery reaches the low level. For Windows XP users, navigate to Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options. Set "Power Schemes" to "Always On". Under "Alarms", uncheck "Low battery alarm" and "Critical battery alarm". Under "Hibernate", uncheck "Enable hibernation", and then click on Apply. Doing this procedure, the laptop battery can now be drained fully until the computer system shuts off. Then, put the adapter back into the power jack and let it charge completely. Sometimes the cycle must be repeated 2-3 times before it actually reaches the 100% full charge. The charging process should last at least around 14 hours.

My battery will not charge


Hello Following issue could be possible

Issue:Main computer battery does not charge.
Cause:This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
  1. Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge.
  2. Battery is bad.
  3. Battery charger board is bad.
Solutions:
Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge
Verify that the AC and or DC cable is not bad by testing the computer only with the power plug connected and the battery out of the laptop.
Battery is bad
It is possible that if the power plug is good that the computer battery is bad. Leave the computer connected to the power with the battery connected in the computer for at least one hour; if the battery does not charge, consider having the battery and/or the laptop serviced or repaired.
If the computer and/or battery is not in warranty consider just replacing the battery as it is very likely that it is just a bad battery.
Battery charger board is bad
If the battery has been replaced or an alternate battery from an alternate identical laptop does not work in the computer, it is likely that the power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.

Display area is "shrunken" on Dell Inspiron 4000 display


Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Monitor, set it to Default monitor and click OK.
Does the display now fill the screen?
If this doesn't work, go to the DELL WEB site and see if there a driver for the display. To ensure you get the correct driver for your model laptop, use the Service Tag number (which is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop) to the download page for your model laptop, download the correct Windows XP or Vista version of the driver from :-

Stuck shutting down


Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds and then release it. This will shutdown the laptop regardless of what state it is in. If it still doesn't shutdown then disconnect the laptop from the powersupply and remove the battery. Note that this will count as an improper shutdown. After it shuts don put the battery back in and you should be able to power it up.
