    How can the charging circuit be blown if the laptop powers on? The led lights are on? The screen is just black and I can hear sounds from the speakers like something is in a loop. I can't truly fix this without being able to see

My hp pavilion dv6-2117ax laptop won't power up (no power light on where adaptor meets laptop). Replaced power adaptor / charger and laptop powered up and operated for a day and then next day woul


The laptop probably isn't charging. Could be a bad d/c connector on the laptop or the battery is bad. Remove the battery and plug in the a/c adapter and see if it powers on. Wiggle the a/c plug in gently while pressing the power button on the laptop. It powers on and off briefly then I'd say it's the d/c jack on the laptop, bad sodder joint.

I can barely see the screen, its very dark. Its a toshiba satellite m115 s1061


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Ac power doesnt work only in battery mode,adaptor output is ok


sounds like the power connector (where you plug into pc) is going bad. try twisting / wiggling connector. pause for a few seconds between twists to give circuitry chance to reconize power input. sometimes there is a green led that will light up when power adaptor is inserted. you can use that as a reference.

Keeps powering on and off.


Keep in mind since you cleaned it out, only have the AC adaptor hooked up to rule the battery out. If the laptop stays on with only the ac adaptor hooked up and doesn't shut off then you know that the battery is faulty. If it still shuts off even with just the ac adaptor hooked up then it could be the ac adaptor.

Also check one more thing, with only the ac adaptor hooked up, wiggle the cord where it plugs into the laptop and see if the laptop shuts off, if it does then the dc jack on the motherboard is loose and needs to be resoldered back into place so it stays put.

Toshiba satellite m115-s3094,no power


try to turn on your laptop with ac adpater plug in only (no battery)

if this thing work, download the BIOS update..because all battery have smart sensor this might be the reason.

after you install the updated BIOS plug the battery and power supply and turn on your computer

if you did this and still getting the same issue call your manufacturer support...it might be the motherboard.

Erratic Touchpad on Toshiba M50 Notebook


if the touchpad is working fine with the battery and if it is not working with the ac adaptor then in this case u can try with the different ac adaptor and still if it does the same thing then uninstall and resintall the toouchpad driver and restart the computer and still if it does so with the ac adaptor then u need to open the laptop chasis and then u need to fix up the power supply connector in the motherboard where the power supply from the ac adaptor is not getting the adequate response from motherboard.

Power on problem


First that u need to do is to remove the battery from your toshiba laptop. Plug in the AC adapter alone and power it on. If it works, then u need to check your battery. If the notebook wont power on with the AC adapter alone, then i think its a NO POST issue. The motherboard needs to be checked.

Toshiba Satellite 1405 - Power problem


Hi Don

Although symptom is showing that AC Adaptor is not working as its not providing power to the unit. I will suggest you to perform some basic troubleshooting steps. Check if outlet is working if not check with known working outlet. If you have a multimeter you can the output of the AC adaptor.

Also you can perform full power cycle and component discharge. Take the battery out and disconnect the AC adaptor press the power button and hold about 7 seconds. After that put the AC adaptor in and test again.

If issue persist take to nearest Service center check with known working AC adaptor. After that I believe you will figure out the best solution.

Good Luck
