Take a small screwdriver and try move around the DC-Jack in the back of your Laptop. If it seems wobbly and loose, that may be your issue, especially if the powerlight comes on intermittently when the charger is connected and you move the DC-Plug. Bend and twist the Laptop body as you try to turn it on. If it turns on only when you twist the laptop body, then the GPU or the southbridge may be loose (peripheral processors on the Laptop's motherboard). In the latter case you would need a new motherboard to get fully up and running again. Some places also offer a Logic Board Repair under certain circumstances: Laptop Repair NYC

It is obviously not charging. Either the battery is defective, the power adapter is not getting power, the adapter itself is defective, you're not using correct adapter or power outlet is no good.

Try to see if theres any light at the laptops jack where you connect the power, if not theres no power getting in.
Try to remove and insert the battery again.
Make sure all power connections are secured
Try removing the battery and just plug it the power adaptor to isolate the problem.
Try another power outlet
If plug in to power strip, try resetting strip by turning off and on

If none of these work then you may have a defective jack in your laptop.

Hi,
There is a possibility that the battery is defective.

Turn the laptop off and remove the battery and AC power. Clean the brass contacts on the battery and the laptop.
Plug in AC power only, boot the laptop up without the battery and go into the BIOS and set the BIOS to default settings. Save the changes and let the laptop boot into Windows. Once in Windows power down the laptop again and remove the AC power.
Reinsert the battery and AC power and boot the laptop up. See if that has helped.


Good luck.

Your laptop may need a hardware reset. Follow this.. Remove ac adapter and battery. Press the on button for 15-20 seconds the release. Connect your ac adapter and try powering on. If that does not work then try it again at least three times. Failing that your Cmos battery may be low voltage. Buy a new one (C2032) and install near Hdd compartment underneath large panel on bottom of laptop. Install and try hardware reset again. If works then upgrade firmware to F15. If no joy in power up then may be fault in adaptor plug socket on motherboard which would need specialist replacing. Mike W

Nurvo tablet will not turn on or off


Have you charged the battery? Please charge it at least for 2 hours, and then try this:
1. Unplug the AC adapter,
2. Remove the battery,
3. Press the power button and hold it for 15 seconds,
4. Install the battery,
5. Plug in the ac adapter,
6. Turn on the laptop.

If it does not work, then probably the motherboard is dead.

I just got a brand new Satellite Toshiba touch screen laptop yesterday for chritmas and its plugged in and charged over night but wont turn on unless its plugged in. Is this temporary? or is something


As long as the charge is not complete the battery LED remains amber.
Give the laptop the time to charge: it should take 3 to 4 hours it it is not being used, and 3 times longer if it is used.
You do not need to register immediately with Toshiba.

This is not a problem with your laptop or PC (so you have posted in the wrong category), but, it would seem that the battery in your mp3 player is dead and would need to be replaced. I assume that you tried to use different cables to charge it.

Keep getting message that my battery in low, also laptop goes dead if not connected to cherger.


atteries have a limited life and most need to be replaced every 12 to 24 months. If that amount of time has lapsed since you've replaced the battery, or if damage was done to the battery, such as a spill or overheating, the battery may be dead Unplug the laptop from the wall charger. Remove the battery from the laptop. The battery is located on the underside of the laptop and usually slides out, or can be popped out by sliding the battery release buttons next to the battery.2 Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Rub the cotton swab into the battery contacts to remove dirt and dust. Use a cloth dampened with water to wipe dust from the rest of the battery and battery housing unit. If dust is on the connectors, it can block or impede charging. Snap the battery back into place on the laptop.3 Plug the laptop wall charger into the wall. Plug the other end into the laptop. Allow the laptop to charge for 24 hours.4 Disconnect the laptop wall charger from the laptop. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop does not turn on, the battery did not charge, indicating the battery is dead. If the laptop turns on, but the battery lasts for a short period of time, this is a good indication that the battery is damaged or dying.

    I need to know how to use my new laptop battery correctly.


    The first time you charge the battery allow 12 to 16 hours, after that 2 to 4 hours or when battery is charged. If you go on battery frequently drain it right down before charging it, this will give the maxi-um performance and longevity.

    My MPC t2300 laptop wom't turn on.


    The Transport T2300 has an internal battery that will run the laptop for several minutes after the main battery goes dead. This feature allows you to save your work and shut down safely. If you run the laptop until both batteries are dead, even a brand new battery can't start the unit again. You have to follow this procedure:
    1.Unplug power cord

    2. Remove any attached periphal components including the cd rom and/or floppy disk module if you have one. Both remove with a push button switch located on the bottom of the unit.

    3. Plug in power cord and charge the unit for a minimum of 24 hours straight. 30 hours is better. This whole time will be spent slowly recharging the internal back up battery.

    4. Once that is done, unplug power cord again and reinstall any floppy/cd drives. Plug power cord back in now and charge for at least 24 hours again.

    If your backup battery is dead, you can't charge the main battery or turn the unit on. The longer you charge, the better. We had one unit here that had to be on the initial battery backup for 72 hours before it finally took hold. Then, one overnight recharge on the regular battery and all was well.
    If you need drivers or manuals for the 2300, all are available on cd at mpcsupport@cox.net for around $9.50 including shipping, handling, and owners manual

    Charging lap top battery


    As soon as the AC is plugged in, the battery will start to charge. The battery light located somewhere on the laptop should indicate you that it is charging. It does not matter if the laptop is turned on or off.

    What you explain here about the first battery is very common for a 4-5 y.o. laptop. The longevity of the battery mainly depends on the number of charging/discharging cycles it encountered. If the second battery you want to try spent more time in a carrying case than in the laptop, it may still be usable. But do not expect to go over 1 hour of autonomy with it.
