Check first to remove the battery and plug the cord if it is working without battery...if working..means the battery problem...

Inspiron 1525: "plugged in, not charging"


Not charging means the battery is not being charged. Batteries only have a useful life of so long, then they die and will not take a charge so you have to replace them.

If the laptop works fine when the power cord is plugged in, then just replace the battery. if the laptop does not work on the power cord, then you need to either replace the power cord or look to see if the DC Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is broken or wiggles. When the DC Jack it bad the battery will not charge and eventually the laptop will not turn on if the power cord can't make the connection correctly.

Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Gateway MS2291 wont power up


Did you check the DC Jack where the Power Cord plugs into the laptop? If it is bad (wiggly or loose) then the laptop will not power on. Take an ink pen and put it where the power cord would plug into the laptop and see if the jack wiggles or is broken. If so, that's your problem.

The old power cord might be some good if the problem is with the DC Power Jack.

Power will not come on. I bought a new power cord


The power supply may be at fault. You can try testing the supply with a volt meter. However, this may be inaccurate because there is no load on the power supply.

You can try a friend's power supply or buy a universal power supply (usually cheaper than an OEM one).

You may also have a problem with the DC Jack. This is a common problem too. Try moving the tip of the power cord in the computer. Does it feel firm. Do the power lights come on and off. Unfortunately, DC Jack problem will require a professional.

No connection with the DC Jack on Gateway 3550GZ


It's time to take the computer to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting & repair, because there are very-few "user-repairable" parts inside a laptop/notebook computer.

Or you can just type in 12v 2.5A LCD Adapter in an Ebay search. You can usually find a bunch of buy now power supplies that come with cords for a decent price. I've been using one of these for a year or so on my monitor.

Wii console is plugged in put won't turn on or power up...the thing is only four months old.


If you are using a muti-out lit device, unplug and use only wall outlits, if it is plugged into the wall, then plug in a working lamp to that same outlit to make sure the outlit is working. If you roll up the power cords alot or pull from outlit from the cord and not the base of the cord, you might have damage the cord internally. If you have a friend who owns a working WII then try using there cords on your console.
If nothing works, then possible the wii overheated. For further help on that, go to www.nintendo.com and go to support link.
