When you bootup all the way put a flashlight point it at the screen.
Do you see anything in the background?
Some people see shadows.
Basically it looks like the backlights do not work.
Sometimes inverters can go in which all you need to do is buy a new inverter and install it.
Let me know either way

My computer just stop now i want to turn it on it doesnt work charger is still good because the indicator light burns but when i connect it to the laptop it stops burning the screen just went black...


The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

My laptop charging port is not working properly. My Charger is running properly but the charging port of the laptop is not working.It is not getting charged.Now the laptop is totally off and now i cant...


There are three possible parts of the computer which cause the problem.

1. ac adapter or charger
2. battery
3. motherboard

The charger is working fine which leaves the battery and the motherboard to be the possible reasons for that certain problem. What you need to do is to check which one is really the part that's causing the problem.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Remove the battery from the laptop.
2. Turn the computer by using the charger alone. If it turns on then, the battery needs to be replaced. If it doesn't then it's a motherboard problem which is a very complicated situation. You need to see a computer technician for a motherboard problem.

My laptop wont charge, is there any way to check if it's the battery or the charger that's at fault without going to the expense of buying one or the other? When i first turn it on it momentarily appears...

Hi there !

Yes, you can self diagnose your laptop if your laptop is not charging and most common problem is the charge adaptor is broken which means power light is not on when you connect your power cable to power supply. For laptop, battery problem, usually the power light is blinking orange light, giving you a warning on hardware failed which is the battery is damaged. But if your laptop is new, I believe the charger is the problem or not compatible with the laptop unit.

I suggest also to borrow from a friend, if you can, a charge adapter to check if charging and if so, that is the problem.

Good Luck and I hope it helps you. Thank you for using FixYa !

Bad charger. Try with another charger you can borrow from a friend.

My Dell latitude d610 charging circuit not working on board

What needs to be done is the jack that your adaptor plugs into has solder points underneath it. All the solder points need to be resoldered to make sure that there are no cracks in the solder that are preventing the jack from charging your battery.

After this is done if the laptop still isn't charging then if you know for sure your using the correct ac adaptor with your laptop then at that point the moterboard would have to be replaced.

Unable to start up laptop

Make sure that your batteries are fully charged. Also the most likely problem is that your laptop charger needs a checkup. try using another charger of same model (Probably u can borrow one from your friend who uses similar version), if charger change doesnot work, repeat the same with batteries too. This should fix the problem. if step 1 & 2 does not help, probably u have a hardware level problem with your laptop and need a technical support from your vendor / service company. All the best.

Problems with charging

This still could be either if the cord is being moved at the same time. when the laptop is able to turn on, Does everything (programs, software, etc) function properly? If yes, then we can narrow it to the battery or ac adapter.
To find out whether it is the ac adapter or battery, take out the battery, and see if the laptop powers up and stay that way. If it intermittently closes or shuts down, it's most likely the ac adapter. 
If it stays powered on, even if you move it, then it's most likely a battery issue.
If you want to be sure before spending some money, go to a friend's, neighbor's or computer store with a with the same manufacturer (dell, toshiba, etc), and borrow their ac adapter to check
