Hi Mellisa,
If there isn't any lights on the laptop when it is plugged into the mains supply there is a power problem.
Check the surge protector, has got a reset button?
Plug a lamp into this surge board, if the lamp lights up when the board is connected to the mains then the surge board is OK.
Next check the laptop's power adapter with a multimeter, the voltage reading should be as per the label on the adapter. If the voltage is less than the voltage on the label, then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Borrow another adapter to connect to your laptop to see if it powers up or take it to your friendly computer shop to test it.

SOURCE: There was a power outage

Check for obvious first like;

Power cycle the strip by turning off and then on the, if that doesn't work try plugging into another power outlet or plug another device or appliance to see if the power outlet is good.

My laptop pluged in but not charging


There could be many problems with your laptopFirst, check if your laptop was plugged into a surge protector (ex. Power Strip). If it wasn't, a surge could destroy the charger, power supply, or even motherboard.
Second, try a different charger. If it was the charger that broke, then try a different one. I have had this happen to many off my computers over the years.
If it is fried, take it to Staples, or a local computer shop. I would always recommend plugging computers into surge protectors. Good luck!

Please try to remove the battery and than try to switch on the laptop directly from mains power and if it works than its your battery problem or if it still not starts than there is possibility of some components of your laptop may fired due power fluctuation. So go and contact service station.

There is a high probability that your laptop has been fried, especially if it was plugged into the mains at the time of the lightning strike.
A lightning strike could damage many components and even if you could get it fixed (most likely require a motherboard replacement) there are no guarentees that some other component won't fail in the future.
If it was me, I would put my money towards a new laptop and get a surge/lightning protection power board and disconnect the laptop from the main during a lightning storm.

Dell Inspiron 2200 Charger Malfunction


Try to turn off the computer and remove the battery from the bottom of the notebook. Turn on the computer with just the charger plugged in. If it doesnt turn on. you may have a bad power port.

If it has no power/charging issue since that happened except that the indicator light doesnt turn on when you plug in the charger, you may just need a bios update. Click here. That's the bios update for the inspiron 2200 from dell's website. You should have at least 30% charge on the battery and the ac adapter should be plugged in so you can run it. The computer will restart and will come back normally after this. I'd suggest that you backup your files before running this.

You also might want to go into your local Staples to find a 3rd party power adapter to see if your power adapter is bad (Staples has no return policy, thus you can try it out and return if needed).

Compaq presario V2000 doesn't start


It sounds like one of the most frequent failure for a laptop, the plug on the back of your laptop is probably broken. Check if it's loose, try to move the plug until you get the orange light. If it's the case, someone need to resolder/replace the plug on the motherboard.

Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes.
