Are you getting juice out of the power cord? You could use a multimeter to see that you are getting the rated power out of the brick. Sometimes it is as simple as a plug not making good contact.Find a voltmeter and test if the adapter puts out any power at all. Make sure the RAM is properly seated, unplug every peripheral (even the cd/dvdrom drive), power it up on direct electric power. Check if you can get into the BIOS (F2, or F10, or delete, or some random key depending on the manufacturer, that you press when you power up).

Most laptops have a little light showing that they are recharging when plugged in properly. Is there a green LED light? Alternatively, I had an old laptop where the brick had a removable power cord and one of the prongs in the adapter where the power cord plugged into the brick would sometimes get pushed in and fail to make contact. Once I had that plugged in properly, I never unplugged it again.

If it fails when trying to boot windows, you could always try to download and burn an ubuntu live-cd and boot from the CD to see if the problem is really your software.

My inspiron one 2305 won't power on. The light on the adapter cuts off soon as i plug it in. It work fine the last time i shut it down.


Welcome to Fixya
This sound like a hardware problem not much to do to try and fix this issue but you can try this.
Remove the ac adapter and battery. Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. By doing this we are draining the flea power of the laptop. Residue power sometimes causes a no power issue. If this does not fix the problem then you would have to get the laptop serviced.


Hope this helps

My lap has a battery problems.keeps warning me about low charging while its being charged


I am not overly familiar with laptops, but have seen some battery problems lately.

Some computers require a power supply with a third pin - the computer will run while attached to the power supply, but the battery will not charge. If you connect with HP's website, you may be able to find out what the voltage should be at the plug. If this checks out OK, it may be that the receptacle on the computer is bad - and requires more than a casual repair.

Of course, the battery could be nearing the end of its useful life. Can you borrow a battery from someone with a similar laptop? I just found a test for the battery on the manufacture's website that may be the answer to your problem.

My new iPhone 3GS shuts down my computer when I plug it in


Hi I had the same problem, for a few days the new Iphone worked fine then started to appear as digital picture divice then just shut my Laptop down as soon as i plugged it in. I contacted Apple who were very helpfull and sent me 4 mails with advice. The one that worked for me was ...........
If you have anything running on your pc/Laptop with Logitech driver it conflicts with the apple drivers. I had a built in webcam on Laptop and when I typed Logitech in the search on start menu found it was run by that driver. I uninstalled it and deleted all the relavent files plugged Iphone in and no more problems except I now dont have a webcam but I thought small price to pay.

I hope this Helps
Best wishes

You could leave it off for a few hours, but there is a much faster solution that does pretty much the same thing. Turn your computer off, unplug ur AC and battery. Then press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds. This will drain all of the power remaining in ur computer. Then plug ur ac adapter back in and it should be fine.

You may have a defective battery. It no longer delivers the required voltage to make your laptop work optimally. Some components will not work when those do not receive enough electricity. When you insert the plug to the mains you get the required power to make the components of your laptop work. You may try to remove your battery and plug to the mains. If this works without problems, then you must change your battery.

My toshiba satellite p200-140 laptop will not start up. the power button lights up but nothing else happens. it was working fine last night


My laptop had a similar problem. I left my laptop running and some time later when I went back to my laptop, it would not startup. The power light seemed to be on but the laptop would not function. I tried several things like pressing on the power key for some time without any success and also tried all sorts of alternate buttons and sequences.

I resolved the problem by first disconnecting the power cord then by removing the battery for 5 minutes. I then re-installed the battery then connected the power adapter.

As soon as I turned the power button 'ON', the laptop booted up again.

Hope this works out for you.

Regards,
Rick
