    I am dealing with the same problem with the same computer, must be a malfunction. I even went and bought a new battery charger, I can't get the green light to come on for it to charge.

    I fiddled about with the input plug to the computer and eventually got a yellow light which I think meant that the battery was charging-after a time, presu,ably when the battery was sufficiently chatrrged the green lights cam on and I was able to log in. In other words, it was a faulty connection

    The DC connector on the system board is probably loose and needs to be resoldered.

I have the same notebook and the same problem occurs with mine. First you have to disconect the battery a few times in a row. You may have to tremove the bios battery. If you have the extra battery in the socket where the cd player is then you need to remove that battery as well. I have this issue with my laptop on a regular basis and thats what i do to fix the issue. watch out for heating up issues you can't use this unit flat on your lap for a long period of time it will heat up and random shut off, you should get a cooling fan tray from e-bay i got one with 3 fans for 11 dollars i also recomend going into the bios and setting the fan to always on when pluged in thjis helps keep the unit cool and working. When you get the light to come on i sugest letting the battery charge up before using the unit.

Charger faulty or Motherboard problem.
You can check the power supply of the charger by measuring the DC voltage at the DC jack with a multimeter set to DC volts (red probe on the inner of the jack, black probe on the outer of the jack, should measure 18-20 volts.

Also check the security of the jack in the DC port, make sure it is not loose

Computer wont turn on

hi thanks for using fixya!

May I ask, how many years now is your laptop?

Try to remove the battery, and use the AC adapter instead, connect it to your laptop, check if its going to have a power. Turn it on. If its turning on and working normally, then the problem is your battery, you have to purchase compatible and original battery. If its not working while it is connected to the AC adapter, check if the adapter is supplying power, because maybe the problem is with the AC adapter.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

pull the battery and try to power on. if no good test the power adapter with a meter - should give 18-19 volts. if it boots with battery off, power up and put battery back on to charge.

Laptops are notorious for having the adapter plug come loose from the motherboard although, most laptops will power off of the battery if this happens (if the battery has a good charge). Some laptops have a DC power board that can burn out. Or in some cases, It can be the power button bar. If you are not comfortable trying to repair it yourself, I suggest taking it to a reputable repair shop but it will probably cost you quite a bit to get it fixed. If you know someone who does this type of repair you might check with them.

Acer aspire 3004 WLCi won't power on

Often times when laptop won't power on, it's jack on the back where the power supply plugs in. It needs to be disassembled, soldered back together and that should fix it. Good luck!

Philips Freevents X56 laptop won't switch on!

Could be anyone of a number of things related to internal batteries. Let it charge for a while (does the charging light come on on the laptop? - isn't clear if the green light is on the powersupply or the laptop itself) and trying again.

Failed on restart, had all lights, now no lights and won't do anything!

sounds like your ac plug to the laptop might be loose you can try ans see if you can resolder it back. the other problem is your ac cord might be broken wiggle it around see if the light flickers.

Laptop will not power on at all.

Don't know what you have for a laptop, so will have to give you a generic process, here. Power down. Remove hard drive, remove cd reader and/or floppy drive. Remove memory cards. Replace only 1 memory card in the main slot (probably marked as slot 1). Try to power it back up and let us know what happens.
