Re: Computer won't power up

I think my 3004 over heated when I left it on a leather chair.
When I press the on button, an orange light in the front of the unit flashes six times. The computer does nothing.

Re: Computer won't power up

The first thing you must must check if the AC Adapter is working, because, even if the battery is bad the AC Adapter must allow the notebook to turn on. Check if there is any light turned on on the AC Adapter. Now, there can be several other reasons why the notebook is not powering up - - A bad hard drive. You can remove the hard drive and then try turning on the notebook - Bad RAM. Again the RAM can be removed and check if the notebook powers up We can have several other reasons why the notebook is not turning on. Those are just some general issues and common resolutions Please revert back with further observations.

Dell m5110 laptop won't charge new battery and ac adapter is not recognized in bios

Try another AC cord/charger with the EXACT same specs as original. Is the battery a genuine Dell battery, if not return it? Some aftermarket laptop batteries don't play well with your computer, the pin-out connections aren't correct and MAY be a fire hazard.

Hello. At first, the indicator light that shows whether the battery is loading/getting empty etc. failed. As I thought it wasn`t important I continued using the laptop. Then the battery loading adapter...

Most probably this is caused by the battery charging circuit inside your laptop. It looks like it is not charging the battery. If this is the case you won't be able to fix it yourself. You and should send it for repair.

Dell xps m1210 won't power up with new battery. Check notes.

If it is working fine with a fresh battery then it is not a motherboard problem. It is either a bad ac adapter jack on the motherboard or the actual ac adapter cord is not working. Try as they have replacement ac adapters for almost everything under the sun. Hope this helps.

Keeps loosing battery/power

If it will not work on AC Adapter without battery in it, then you have a bad AC Adapter and the battery is fine. You don't have to get an expensive AC adapter from the original manufacturer. Just look on the bottom of the AC adapter and write down the Volts and Wattage. You can get another at a place like Lowe's or Home Depot. But you must make sure that the Voltage matches exactly, to much voltage and it will fry your computer, to little voltage and it will not run your computer.

Bad decision with new AC adapter for M105-s3004?

if you look at the bottom of the laptop, you,ll see a voltage rated input. i.e 19v-3.1A or similar.
providing the plug fits, and the voltages are the same, you can,t do much damage to either battery or motherboard.
you can buy universal voltage packs now for laptops, which usually run from 15volts to 19-20 volts.
And several different connectors. for different models.
Of course the manufacturers want you to buy theres, and at thier top notch prices, but a replacements every bit as good. although may not be as superior quality.
check the voltage rated input underneath, if it,s the same.
Use it.
