I have an emachines mx4624 laptop that wont turn on. The power cord has tested good but won't turn on or charge the battery. Can it work with a dead battery and a good power cord?

    I am not familiar with e-machines, but good luck. It sounds like you have an internal power problem in the Power Distribution or motherboard. Like I said e-machines are not my strong side.



    To answer your question. From my experience, laptops can boot with a power cord only, as a matter of fact, lots of people remove the batteries to avoid heat while using the power cord. i just wonder how they expect their battery to get charged.



    Note: most batterries have power indicators that you need to depress to see its charge.

Hi there, Sounds like your Power Jack is Broke... Take a small screw driver and lightly check to see if theres any play in the jack. if you are getting play don't panic its a cheap easy fix but my require some desoldering/soldering to install new jack. if you do find this is the problem i can give you step by step directions on opening up your laptop and installing a new one and where to buy one. good luck

I would say the battery has gone bye-bye. Some laptops won't even boot without a good battery.

Emachine t3985 won't turn on


Give us more details on what happens when you hit the power button. Does it try to turn on? See any lights or hear any beeps? Hear any fans?
If you really want help give details to get a solution.


Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the Memory Cover and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

ALIENWARE DESKTOP LOST ALL POWER


In a laptop, you can lose power in three ways.
1. Dead battery 2. Dead Power cord. 3. Bad motherboard.
ther first two should be rather obvious, as the battery won't work or it won't hold a charge, but if it won't turn on at all, even while plugged in, chances are that you're going to need a new motheboard. This can be expensive in the M--x laptops, unfortunately.
Sorry for the bad news, mate.

E machine 510 wont charge!


Yes, remove the battery from the laptop.

Plug-in power adapter and turn ON laptop (without battery).

After the laptop starts up and Windows has settled, put battery back in the laptop.

Allow to charge for a few hours.

I have the feeling that the battery has to be in place to allow the AC power to be transferred to the mother board

Emachine will not come on


Reseat the power cord that is on the motherboard. Sometimes if you pull that cord from the motherboard (be careful there is a clip that is holding it to the board) wait about 1 minute then plug the cable back onto the motherboard your machine will possibly turn on. Also unplug your power supply cord from the computer when you do this. The other issue could be that the battery on the motherboard is dead.

Hp compaq nx7400 - battery died and power cord will not turn comp


Do you have another power cord to check? Most places like bestbuy is willing to let you test a universal power cord for your type of laptop before you buy. Usually in your case, the power cord or connector has gone bad. If you test the laptop at the store and it doesnt work then its your connector but if it works. you could consider buying that power cord.

Problem with emachine m5124 startup


Take the battery out and unplug the power cord. Press down the power button continuously for a solid 30 seconds without stopping. This drains all the power out of the circuits and resets whatever invalid state your computer is in.

Now, leave the battery out but plug in the AC and turn on the laptop. If it works, turn it off again and insert the battery. All should be well.

My laptop will not charge!! the charger works, but it just wont charge my laptop!


most likely either a bad connector on the power cord or you've broken the motherboard connector. check the power cord with a volt meeter. if it comes up fine the i would recommend either contacting the manufacture or taking it to a reputable tech. if you are comfortable with doing it you can take the laptop apart and look at the connector with the laptop apart plug it in (CAREFULL IT COULD KILL YOU) and test the voltage after the connector wit the volt meeter. if it has power then most likely *********** board is dead. if it doesn't have power then you need to repair/replace the power connector.
