If your battery is dead and your charger is dead there is no way to test. You need a working ac to verify the issue.  Go to an office depot for hp or best buy for dell and ask one of the clerks to plug your laptop into a working charger. power your system. IF it powers up ask where the universal 90watt power converters are. buy one of your liking. I say universal becasue you can use it on a many laptops and it is usually higher reated in watts.

Same HP 8000 model here. HP customer support says the problem of having no power is caused by the connection jack in the computer that is a component of the motherboard. $300 to have a 2 yr old notebook that is out of warrantee fixed.

This seems a very common, expensive and very difficult to fix HP problem. The entire mother board has to be replaced or the computer taken apart? These computers should be recalled.

SOURCE: 2002 IBM ThinkPad T23 battery problems/won't run without power

It doesn't look to me that you're doing anything wrong there.
Was there a specific installation requirement for the battery?

I recently changed my battery on my IBM/Lenovo and all that was necessary, was to let it charge fully before usage.

If you say your battery was charged for "a few days", then I assume there is something wrong with the battery. Next to your taskbar you should see a battery symbol. Double-click on it and you should see the Thinkpad Power Manager. If there is a tab called "Battery Information", see if that gives you more details. Look at the Manufacturing date!

If you really can't run the laptop without being connected to a power source, I would definitely return the battery or at least call the vendor. If your computer is running fine otherwise, there should be nothing wrong with the machine itself.

If you can take a screenshot of that battery information window adn post it here, I am happy to look at it.

PS:
You're doing the right things when you try to use the laptop without an external power source - that's the whole idea, isn't it?

SOURCE: Laptop Not Getting Power

There could be a number of resons for this. Some thoughts:
1) Was your laptop working fine before you bought this new adapter? Eg. did it work with the previous one.
2) Are you positive that it is compatible? You should check all the power ratings against the old adapter (voltage output, current output).
3) Make sure the connector that plugs into the back of the laptop is a perfect fit. Connectors have a + and -. The outside metal ring may fit, but the inside 'pin' may be too small and not making contact with the receving part of the laptop.
4) Make sure that the connector inside the laptop has not broken. Easy way is to get a pencil with eraser and stick it in there and wiggle it around. If it moves sustantially, you may have some connector pins that have become unsoldered. If so, you need to get this fixed.

SOURCE: Battery will not charge/ keep computer on. laptop

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.

I always get plugged in not charging when i charge my laptop even when it is not fully charged


If the laptop works fine off the power cord without any problems then your power cord is ok, but if the battery is not charging then the battery is probably dead and needs to be replaced. Batteries only have a useful life, and when it's over they have to be replaced.

If the laptop does not work with the power cord then either the power cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. If either of them is bad the battery will not charge.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Hello,

There are three possible reasons why your computer is experiencing this power problem. What you need to do is to isolate the component that's causing it.

These are the parts which should be checked:
1. Power supply
2. Battery
3. Motherboard of the laptop.

Here's the procedure that you have to follow:

1.
Remove the battery from the computer.

2. Power the computer up with the power cord only without the battery on it.

3. Check if it works perfectly without any problems even if the battery is out. If it works, then, the battery needs to be replaced. (Note: Batteries are disposable parts. They usually die after 2 years of usage depending on how you use it.)

4.If no go even without the battery on it, check the ac adapter or cord if there's a light lit on the box of the cord. If no lights on it, double check the connection. If connections seem ok but no power, then, replace the power cord.

5. If power cord seem fine, check the hole in the computer where you plug in the cord. What you need to check is if there are any sign of damages. Wiggle the cord and see if there are lights lit in the laptop.

I hope this help.

Acer power cord


Hi,
if you can use your notebook without the battery with the power cord attached, then the battery ist defective. If your notebook doesn't power on at all without battery, then the power cord is faulty.

We need to know what is defective and what is not.

  1. Remove the battery from the laptop.
  2. Plug the power cord to the laptop and plug it to the wall power outlet.
  3. Now, without the battery, turn your laptop ON.
  4. If it powers ON without the battery, then your battery is completely dead and needs replacement. If the problem is still the same, then it should be a motherboard problem considering that you have already confirmed that your power cords are working.
Try your luck. Post feedback if you need further instructions. The point is, you need to know if the battery is dead by removing it first then connecting your laptop directly to the wall power outlet. You can connect it to a Surge Protector or Automatic Voltage Regulator for safety purposes if you want.

Ive got a toshiba 2455-s305 laptop that won't turn on. I've tried it using the power cord, with and without the battery, and when I plug it in it start's flashing in the front, but won't turn on.


Remove battery and disconnect power cord. Press power button for about 5-10 seconds (without battery and power cord) Connect power cord only then turn it on.

With power cord plugged in and without power cord plugged in the pc will not turn on


remove the battery, plug-in power cord then power on. your battery may be completely drain and your power adapter can't give enough supply to power up your laptop and charge the battery at same time. if doing so power on your laptop, charge your battery for about 12 hours without turning the power of your laptop

Battery indicator flashes even when plugged in to electrical plug, computer recognizes plug-in. Computer will not run with power cord.


The battery indicator flashing when plugged in to electrical plug means your battery is completely dead and won't charge. You're computer should run with just the power cord. Your power cord most likely needs replacement.

If you know anyone with the same model of laptop ask if you can borrow their power cord and/or battery to test it out. It is rare for the problem to be the motherboard, though it does happen.

It may just be the power cord at fault as the computer should run without the battery, so you should replace the power cord, as it is probably the reason the battery is completely dead.

If the battery is at least a year old I would replace it since they generally don't last too much longer than a year.
