Benq S41 power suppl ''short"?

Thanks for your suggestion but I've tried the adapter connections and all is OK. The green light blinks regularly and I assumed that this indicates an overload. The problem occurred while I was using the laptop - there was a click from the area of the power supply unit (top left) and all went dead.
Any more suggestions welcome.

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

Benq Joybook V13 8199 not powering up, but power supply working.


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Dim green light on power supply blinking


If the Power supply LED dims and flickers its either your motherboard circuit has been cut or there is a short in the laptop. The AC adapter is not the cause.

Try this:
Remove the battery, then press power button to drain all the current, then re-install battery and plug to adapter.

If that doesn't work, then it's most likely the motherboard.

I would suggest you reinstall using Windows XP because based on your pc specs, your computer will run faster on XP. You may also try Windows 7 because it doesn't require you to install specific drivers. It comes automatically installed when you install the OS.

Sir i have acer 4720Z series laptop. when I plug in the power adapter it show adapter light green. when adapter pin connect the laptop then light show blink and laptop not charging.


Your laptop battery seems to be broken.
To be a 100% sure, can the computer run on only battery?
Try to have the computer plugged in to the charger for a couple of hours without starting it.

Your motherboard is probably shorting out your A/C adapter, you may need a new motherboard. With a Dell, the A/C adapter light will be green when plugged into the wall but as soon as you plug it into the PC the green light goes off. Which means that the Motherboard is shorting out the A/C adapter...

Benq laptop power unit 'short'?


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

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
