    My Toshiba is doing the same thing. I haven't found a solution but if you hold down the power button it will at least power everything off.
    I know it isn't my hard drive because I swapped it to my Dell and it works so my data is safe.

Laptop Battery Won?t Charge?


If your dell laptop computer runs normally on the AC adapter, but the battery won’t charge, please try the following troubleshooting steps:
Check the dell laptop battery and Connections:
1, Remove the battery from the system.
2, Look at the connectors in the bay and on the battery for signs of physical damage.
3, Check the battery charge by pressing the status button or image on the battery near the LED’s.
Note: The lights indicate the current amount of charge on the battery. If all the LED’s come on when you press the button, the battery is fully charged. If fewer lights are lit, then the battery is partially charged. If any lights flash, or blink, there could be a problem with the battery.
4, Reinsert the battery; push until it locks into place and the latch snaps back to the locked position.
Swap Bays or Try A Second Computer:
1, Some systems can run with the battery in either bay. Try swapping bays if you have one of these systems.
The following systems permit a battery to be used in either bay:
Inspiron systems 3700 3800 7500 4000 4100 4150 8000 8100 8200 Latitude systems CPx H CPt V CPx / CPt C600 C610 C640 C800 C810 C840 Note: It may be necessary to slide the face plate left or right on some batteries when switching bays. 2, If you have access to a second computer like your own, try to charge your battery in that system.
Flash the BIOS:
Flashing the BIOS can correct many hardware issues.
NOTE:Dell recommends that you update the BIOS on your system, only if you are having problems
1, Go to “The Dell support site”
2, Be sure your system is the one listed in the Your System section on the left.
3, Click the Downloads tab
4, Choose your operating system from the drop down menu
5, Select FlashBIOS Updates as the download category.
6, Click Go.
Select the link to download the most current version of the BIOS:
1, Save the program to your desktop.
2, Go to the desktop and double click the icon.
3, You will be given the option to either create a BIOS disk or flash the disk from the hard drive.

Run the Recalibration Utility if Your System has One:
This utility runs the battery all the way down and then recharges it completely. The process takes several hours so it is best to run it overnight. Use only the recalibration program specified for your system. Using any other program could void your warranty!
Latitude LM, Inspiron 3000 and Inspiron 3200 systems use this recalibration program: BATRECAL.EXE
Inspiron 5000, Inspiron 7000, and Inspiron 7500 systems use this program: I75BRCA0.EXE
Latitude LS, Latitude L400, Latitude X200, and Inspiron 2100 enable a recalibration option on the Power page of the BIOS Setup Program:
How to Enable Battery Recalibration
Try to charge a second battery like your own if possible.
If the second battery won’t charge, the problem may be caused by the charging system in your computer.
If the battery still won’t charge after you have done this troubleshooting,it mean you should replace your old battery,you can go to www.sales-battery.com to choice a new dell laptop battery replacement

Asus x553m laptop wont turn on fully?


Just before it tries to start windows, go to safe mode, press F8 and select safe mode, you may need an external keyboard. That will enable you to restore the faulty/damaged files.

Presario R4000 battery is charging but the lightning bolt is not lit


When you first turn on the laptop, does the lightning bolt LED light up for a split second, even before Windows opens? That is a test that the LED is not burned out. If it does, then are you using the correct AC adapter that came with the laptop? Some look identical, but are not as powerful enough to run the computer correctly and you wouldn't necessarily notice a difference except something like the LED. How old it the battery and how long does it take to fully charge?
1. Reset the laptop by shutting down the laptop and unplugging from AC power;
2. Remove the battery;
3. With the computer unplugged and no battery, hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Remember no power on the computer at all for this step.
4. Replace the battery and plug it back in and turn on.

If that doesn't help, search the internet or HP's web site and update the BIOS for your specific system. Look for good directions for doing this and don't run the BIOS update from the internet, you should download the BIOS to your computer and then run it from there. The BIOS cannot be interrupted. If the BIOS is interrupted while installing, it WILL render your computer useless and you will have to replace the motherboard (extremely expensive).

Won't turn on. Battery is plugged in and lit. n


Try removing your battery pack. Then connect the power adaptor (even without the battery) and connect is directly to the power outlet. If it powers up, then the battery pack might be defective or totally drained.

If the battery is just totally drained, simply place the battery to the laptop. Do not turn the laptop on. Plug the power adaptor to the laptop and plug it to the power source. If you see that the charging LED is blinking in your laptop, then just leave it charging up to 5 to 8 hours.

Never use a laptop on battery mode while it is plugged in to a power source. This is the number 1 reason why laptop batteries don't last longer.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

Shutdown laptop ,turned it back on this morning and the screen is black,no picture, nothing. battery is fully charged. the touch inductive panel and multi-media buttons are all on.


There is only 2 reason why the screen is black. Your LCD backlight is broken or your LCD backlight inverted need to change. Bring your laptop to expert technician to replace that.
