Benq laptop power unit 'short'?

Thanks for your reply but I have tried it without the battery and it's still the same. I note that when the power lead is plugged in the green light goes out then blinks but no lights come on on the computer.

The fact that the LED light on the power supply tells me that its receiving power, look where the AC adapter goes and check the pin to see if it is loose, this sounds like feedback from the computer causing the power supply light to dim or go out

let me know how you get on

I had to replace the motherboard on my HP DV5 1140us laptop. As soon as I replaced it, I tried to power it up. It wouldnt power on, but by where the power adapter goes, it's a constant blinking light...

Try operating the unit without the battery.
If it works, the battery is probably shorted, and may have caused the subsequent failure of your previous motherboard.
If that doesn't help, post a reply here and I'll see what else might be the issue.

Battery dead in my HP laptop will not start with power cord

take out the battery and try to start the computer with it plugged in using the power lead. If this owkrs without the battery being in then the power lead is fine. If this doesnt work it could possibly be the power lead or the power supply inside the laptop. Does the power lead converter (the black box half way down the lead) get warm when plugged in for a while, if so the power supply is probably the fault

Laptop will not charge. when I plug my laptop in to the power cord no lights come on except for the light on the power supply cord goes dim and blinks. anyways help?? thanks, Krystina

Not knowing the age of your unit I can only say that the charger or the battery may be at fault. It is highly unlikely that it is your laptop. Thanks, Dana

Benq S41 power suppl ''short"?

thats what i suggested earlier, the AC adapter in the laptop has blown, thats what causing the feedback/overload. you can fix the problem yourself but it is a big job!!!
If you need the problem resolving straight away, then take it to be repaired, under warranty if its still covered by it!!
Sorry for the misunderstanding

Kind regards

Internal power unit 'short'.

Ok its not the power supply, it the battery in the laptop which is defective. Remove the laptops battery and power on using AC power only, the PC should now boot and your problem will be solved (apart from the battery)

post back to let me know how you get on
