    I HAVE POWER @ THE COMPUTER JACK

  • hlhusker Jan 26, 2009

    I have the same problem.

    Notebook just shutdown, in use without warning.



    Will not attenpt any real activity with powen on attempts.

    Only a RED led flashes at the front, when the power on button is pressed.



    The red LED only flashes with the battery, and without the battery and AC power cord, there is NO activity. Is it possible that my battery is dead, and the AC connector is not functioning?

The solution is really simple. Just take out the battery, connect the a/c cable and try to turn it on again.Chances are that it will start without problems.

If the a/c adaptor is plugged into a power strip, reset power strip by turning off and on. If there's no power on strip use another power outlet.

Make sure PC power supply is good and securely connected.

Power/Power-on Issues


First find out if it is a laptop or a tower. If a laptop has to be sure that the power supply is the corresponding purchased, voltage, amps and Hz If not, the motherboard is out and you have to buy a new one. Also it could be that the problem was in the motherboard power connector. An important point when working with a computer or laptop is to be careful with the static and take proper precautions. Either way, and I recommend buying a new PC or laptop would be cheaper.

Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

My HP laptop screen will not do anything. The first time this happened, I was in the middle of something and the screen suddenly became a bunch of black and white random-ness. I shut it down, and tried...


Perform the following:

1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

If turned on, shut down the Notebook, insert the Battery and turn it on again. That's it.

Cause:
With an extensive use of the notebook, some times notebook would store some static charges which indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging the battery.

Performing above procedure will not effect any personal data or delete any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.

No power


Sounds like a motherboard issue, BUT first try fixing it with a few basics like:

reseating / swapping the memory

removing the hard drive and then powering up the machine.

Try those two first and then report back.

HP DV2175 START UP PROBLEM


The beeps are part of the POST (Power On Self Test). For whatever reason, HP does not do a great job telling us exactly what their POST beep codes mean. The only thing I could find was that the 1 long, 2 short beeps on the AWARD BIOS systems means a failed video adapter. I think there is a good chance this is your problem. You will most likely have to contact HP to get it repaired.
