SOURCE: computer runs off battery only not the power cord (battery is brand new)

You have a serious problem with the power and charging circuit. Normally if the battery is faulty the laptop can function with the power adapter plugged and running off the mains.
If a techo cannot fix without replacing the motherboard, then replacing the motherboard might not be a cost effective solution.

You salvage the hard drive by inserting it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.
Sorry about this, you have very few options.

No power battery flashes 4 orange


If it is orange or is blinking orange, the battery charge is low or expended. Remove the battery and re-install it. Plug in the AC adapter and connect it to an outlet. Turn on the computer.

When the battery status light blinks green and orange, the battery temperature is too hot for charging. Shut down the laptop, detach the AC adapter, and allow the laptop and battery to return to room temperature before attempting to charge the battery.

If the battery status light blinks orange rapidly, the battery itself may be defective.

My lenovo G550 appears not to charge when the charger is plugged in despite turning the mains power on and off to see if power is getting though and the blue neon light showing on the mains...


Hi m529,

I see you are having issues with you G550 charging.

You mentioned that the light on the charger is lit up but then it suddenly switches Off, and you also mentioned that the charge still has a light but the power is somewhat low despite of a fully lit up charger Light.

Have you tried draining the power from the system?

  • Remove the battery and the Charger or AC Adapter as well call it from the G550 then press and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds to drain power from the system motherboard.
  • Once drained connect the AC adapter but do not connect the battery yet, then turn the Laptop ON to see if the system will power ON using the AC adapter/Charger if it powers up then there is no problem with the AC adapter/charger.
  • After testing the AC adapter if it is working power down the Laptop doing a normal shut down.
  • Once shut down or turned Off insert the Battery back in the Laptop then turn the Laptop ON using the battery only without the AC adapter/charger see if the system will turn ON using the Battery only.
  • If the Laptop powers On using the battery alone with out the AC adapter then the battery is most likely working as well on the issue.
  • Now power down the Laptop then connect the AC adapter to the Laptop with the Battery in the Laptop as well then turn the system ON again see if the problem will Occur again having the battery and the AC adapter/charger if the Problem happens with both Battery and AC adapter on the Laptop then the problem is the Motherboard, most probably the motherboard is having issues relaying power from the AC adapter to the battery and may be sent to the Depot for repairs.
I suggest that you call Lenovo for further information about your system, if you still have warranty and is still in the one year period then your system will be covered for any repairs needed - you can call @ 1 877 453 6686 for troubleshooting, you will be asked for a serial number Located underneath the Laptop on a small white sticker that states s/n meaning serial number.

I hope that this Helps.

Have a nice day,

I have a sony psp -1001 that I can play for a few minutes and then it will shut down.


If it happens when you are running on battery that would indicate the battery went bad. This is an older device, if the battery has never been replaced... "it's time". If it shuts down when the power adapter is plugged in then the problem is much worse.
Does the power light blink even fa short time before it shuts down?

Battery light blinks, but it won't turn on


Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter. If the laptop turns on then that means the battery is weak or bad and needs to be charged up if its weak, if its bad, replace it.

If you hook up the ac adapter without the battery hooked up and you don't get any power, try another ac adapter and if you still don't have power then that means the motherboard is bad.

No power showing


the power system is my first consideration, since the attempt of using battery and the adapter and it doesno longer come on, i suggest you have the power system checked but first insert the battery carefully and check if it comes on or not and carefully plug the adapter and watch if the adapter led on the adapter comes on or not,if comes on the power system of the laptop is the case and if does not come on change the adapter and try again. should it not work out the power system of the laptop is defective.

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.


Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
