Try a couple things for me first--

*put your comp on a flat stable surface.
*look at your power cord. there is a big box in the middle of it. check to make sure the wires on either side of it are pushed in all the way, if it is the kind that unplugs from the box like mine are.
* open your notebook and plug the cord into the back.
* while holding the plug firmly into the back of your notebook, turn it on and try to boot up.

if this doesnt let you turn it on and boot up, you have either an internal power supply problem, battery problem or possibly a bad power cord. you would need to have someone physically check this for you.

If it does turn on. the jack in the back could be worn out, loose or what have you or the cord is possibly bad.

please let me know what happens

New DC jack, powers up but no display. Strange power LED behavior.


No Rob, you aren't running out of options. You just haven't diagnosed far enough, because you don't know the path.........hence where I come in.........

Using the HP Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, as an example,

http://mayohardware.blogspot.com/2010/04/important-parts-on-dv6000-and-dv9000.html

There are two Power MOSFET's being used.
The Fairchild Semiconductor Industries - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and the Alpha & Omega Semiconductor LTD - AO4407 Power MOSFET.

Both of these P.MOSFET's are Obsolete. However there are cross reference examples given. Let's look at two of these examples, and also note the cost,

My Acer 6800 on button light comes on, wont shut off! Wont boot up all the sudden!


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case 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.

My acer laptop wont turn in it just acts like there is no batterry in it and no power cord plugged in


Hello.

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.
