Without the Make, Model of computer It's difficult to help. But a word of advise, Beware of inexpensive aftermarket Batteries and cord/chargers. They sometimes , at best, do not work properly, a worst, can be a fire hazzard. It's cheap for a reason. Be sure to buy the EXACT power specs, Voltage, Amperage. Look to the Laptop Manufacturer for exact replacement. They may be pricey, but , in the long run a better bet.

SOURCE: Battery problem...

This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities. 1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge.
2.- Battery is bad.
3.- Battery charger board is bad.

1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge
Verify that the AC and or DC cable is not bad by testing the computer only with the power plug connected and the battery out of the laptop.
2.- Battery is bad
It is possible that if the power plug is good that the computer battery is bad. Leave the computer connected to the power with the battery connected in the computer for at least one hour; if the battery does not charge, consider having the battery and/or the laptop serviced or repaired.
If the computer and/or battery is not in warranty consider just replacing the battery as it is very likely that it is just a bad battery.
3.- Battery charger board is bad
If the battery has been replaced or an alternate battery from an alternate identical laptop does not work in the computer, it is likely that the power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.

This will fix your problem.

SOURCE: hp power supply failiure


Ive worked on a friends G7000 series laptop, since it had the same symptoms you have with yours.

I tested it on my own(identical) working charger/PSU and still no charging.
After taking the motherboard out, i traced the fault to a short circuit FET (field effect transistor) with the PCB reference of PQ1, located right next to the connector for the DC power jack loom.(short from gate to source) The FET is made by Fairchild Semiconductors and its part number is FDS6675BZ. Being in the UK, i ordered the part from at a cost of 56pence. After changing this FET(which is there to control power) the laptop is working.

If you are not good with very intricate surface mount soldering, then i suggest you buy the component, take the motherboard out of the laptop(not too hard) and take them both down your local TV repair shop for them to check and change it(tell them the board reference PQ1).. shouldnt cost more than £20 or so been as they dont have to fault find.

SOURCE: What is main power supply for a laptop?

I would say that is most likley the motherboard not the power supply and this is a pretty big job you would have to take the laptop apart if the laptop is under warrenty I would use it otherwise you would most likley be better off getting another computer unless you are very good at taking computers apart. You can go to HP website support and get repair manual and it will tell you how to take apart.

SOURCE: hp pavilion dv8000 help

I had the EXACT same issue on my HP Pavilion DV8000. After reading this thread I started disecting the machine, sure the issue was a faulty internal power plug/cable. It is TRULY a big job, but very doable without special tools. You pretty much have to take every single screw out of the thing to get to that stupid cable.

Here are a few things to know:
1) there are a lot of screws - mainly long black (L 12) and short silver (L 5x2.5). Keep track of all of them in order so you don't end up like me - with 3 leftovers. Lol. There is ONE long black screw that is a little shorted than the others (L 10). This is one I had left over. There are two VERY tiny black ones. I also have one of those left over. There is also a few smaller black ones, too. Just keep them all noted as you remove them and remember where these odd ones go!
2) There are some very flat band cables that plug in to tiny plgs. However thereis no plug on the cable. The flat end just shuves into the plugs. These are very delicate. be gentle with them.
3) When you finally get the housing for the fan loose you can now get to the entire power supply cable. Here is a note: I FIXED my problem by unplugging this cable and plugging it back in. The cable runs under the fan housing, and it seems like you have to remove that housing to get to the cable, but actually it comes out again right next to the processor and heat sink. There is a thin sheet of black sticky insulator tape over the processor and the cable at that point. You'll have to gently remove it. There is not much room there, but you CAN unplug the cable without removing the entire fan housing.

Here is what I did to test this plug and cable. After unplugging it, I shoved a tiny straightened staple (the female plug is very tiny) into the female receptacles for the prongs on the motherboard (red and black only). Then I plugged the power supply in to the power jack. With a DC meter I verified that the female end of the power cable inside the machine was getting juice, and it was.

With nothing left to test, I put it all back together (save three screws) and it is now charging the battery and running from the ad power plug. Whatever I did fixed it!

One last note: There are 4 sequenced screws that hold the heat sink tight. These are under a bit of pressure so the sink is tight. DO NOT remove these as the sink has a heat conducting "goo" that helps it disperse the processor heat. As old as these machines are now, you don't really want to disrupt that "goo" and risk the processor over heating.

I hope all of this typing helps someone.

1. Unplug your computer and remove the battery.
2. Press the power button several times.
3. Reattach the battery, plug in the computer, and press the power button.
4. If the problem persists, look closely at the screen. If you can make out faint, dim images, the backlighting components must be replaced or repaired. If not, it is likely another issue with the physical hardware of the machine such as the screen or the motherboard.

The jack inside the laptop where the power supply plugs into is broken. It will need to go to a computer tech for repair, chances are the jack will need to be replaced and in order to do that a total dis-mantling will need to be done.

Earlier my laptop shut down with no warning even though the charger was all connected and plugged in. now even though the charger is plugged in everytime i try to turn it back on the needs to be charged...

This could be caused by several things, but try the obvious first. I just bought a brand new power supply, and in less than a week the customer called and said it stopped working. I suggested she take the cord from the old charger and try it - it worked - the brand new cord lasted less than a week. The other thing that could cause this is a bad connection on the end of the power supply, going into the computer. It could even be a bad power supply.The last thing I can think of is a bad battery that won't hold a charge.

I need a new power cord for a dell inspiron mini 10 netbook. I THINK it is a 30 watt cord but am not sure. Can I replace the cord with a 65 watt cord?

If you are talking about the battery charger + power cord combination for your laptop, the yes. A 65 watt will charge your batteries faster, and also provide enough power for a docking station and external monitor, if you have them.

Using a 65 watt charger instead of a 35 watt one will not harm your laptop in any way.

Have a Gateway Laptop Computer Model #MT6708. Previously computer had blank screen and no power. Currently purchased new battery and power cord. Computer now operating screen and power is on. However, when...

First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

Taking the fact that you already replaced the battery into consideration, chances are that you have a faulty cord. Looks like you're going to need a new one mate.

Acer Aspire 3680

Check to make sure that the adapter (where it plugs into the back of your computer) is not loose. I know that I just had to replace mine due to the saudering coming loose. If when you plut it in and you can move it around and there is play to it, then you need to have the "charging port" replaced with a new one. Usally this means taking it into a computer service to have them take apart the lap top and fit a new one.
