    My older model Compaq Armada M300 boots fine from the AC adapter, but not from the battery. I just bought a new replacement battery. Software showed it did well during charging process and finally achieved 100%. All LED's on battery light when button is pressed. PC will not turn on when AC unit is unplugged.

Hi,
Make sure all the power connections are connected properly to the cpu, monitor, and to the main board. If nothing works then replace the SMPS box present in the cpu.. this might cause the problem...
Thank you...

Laptop has power but won't boot up


There are three possible reasons why it's acting like that.

1. Defective AC Adapter or Power cord
2. Defective Motherboard
3. Defective Battery

First off, you need to isolate the part which causing the issue. Please follow the following steps:

1. Remove the battery and use the power cord alone in powering up your computer. If it goes well, then you need to replace the battery. If no go, then try using a different known good outlet.

2. Check the acer power adapter (the box) if there's a light lit. If it's green, then it's should be working fine. If it's amber or nothing at all, then there's a problem with it. You might need to replace that.

3. If the AC adapter looks good, then try to wiggle the cord so that you can check if the cord is properly connected to the computer. Usually, cords get loose and it causes problems. If it has this kind of problem, then you need to get a technician to check that for you because you might need to buy a new motherboard for that.

Please do the above simple steps, and let me know if anything happens. I hope this can solve the issue.

The first thing to check is for proper power. Try connecting your charger with the battery removed and powering up the computer. If you are not successful with this, it may be that the charger is defective and not charging your battery.
Advise that you purchase/borrow a supported laptop charger. A local HP repair center should have a compatible charger that you could use to test.
If it is not the charger (the laptop should work without a battery), then you have motherboard problems. Memory or other issues would cause a power on but errors. No power up at all is going to require some sort of board replacement.
At that point, your choice is warranty repair service or, if out of warranty, best bet will be replacement of laptop.

My laptop won't turn on. I tried taking out the battery, a different battery, a differnet power cord. It won't turn on. Is there a way to reset it?


Are there any lights or indications on the battery itself that might tell you if the battery is good? I had a laptop with a similar problem and it turned out to be both a bad battery and a bad "power brick". replacing both fixed my issues. Also, try holding the power cable at the point where it connects to the laptop and push to the left or right. A friend's laptop would only start if you held the power cable to the left. Otherwise, it sounds like a mother board issue. Sorry.

Hard drive


It means that your HDD is damage, no good. Need to get another one and reformat your computer.
The way to troubleshoot any computer that won't turn on is checking the power supply fan to see if it does anything when pressing the power button. If you see that the fan try to start but stall, then there is a bad hardware install. What I do is take all the hardware out and start the troubleshooting by installing the hardware one at a time. When the computer stop responding after installing one of the hardware, then it means that this hardware is bad. You already troubleshoot the computer by installing the HDD and seeing that the computer won't start.

My toshiba nb 305 wont start up, do you have any idea why? i was typing when suddenly it turn off, i tried to to turn it on but only the "on" button will power up but the screen wont start. after...


@fitz_quinto

Try to do the following:

1. Remove the battery
2. Press and Hold the power button for 20secs (this will drain the power out of the computer)
3. Insert the AC adapter and turn the unit ON

If the above procedure won't work, this is a sign that the computer's motherboard might have gone bad and you need to have the unit serviced. If you're still under warranty, call 1-800-457-7777 (for US) and 1-800-663-0378 (for Canada).


Good luck.

Computer will not turn on


This could indicate a bad battery, or bad memory chip. Try starting without the battery. If this doesn't work, then try takeing one or the other memory chips out. If the problem persists, then it may lie within the power management system on the motherboard.
