IBM T40 the battery is fully charged but will not power on with the ac

I have a IBM T40 the battery is fully charged but will not power on with the ac adapter unplugged. On the battery I get a quick flash of lights when I hit the power button and hear the fan but nothing. I can plug the ac in and it powers right up and shows a fully charged battery.
One flash of the lights and I hear the fan come on for a brief second .

My dyson Max 08-21663b WHEN FULLY CHARGED I TURN IT ON AND IT RUNS FOR 5 SECONDS AND GOES OFF AND DOES THE SAME THING REPEATELY I BELIEVE ITS MY BATTERY PACK WHICH IS A 6 CELL CAN YOOU ADVISE ME?


Yes the battery pack would be the most likely culprit here. Go on eBay and buy the correct battery cells and build one using the old one as a guide. This method will save you about 50% over trying to buy a make up replacement if available. This is an easy job, just take your time, buy batteries with solder tabs.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

Does it actually have a wireless network adapter? Check the network adapter settings. Does it show both LAN and wireless? If it does you may need to use one of the Function keys to launch the interface to turn on the wireless.

How can i download falsh player on to 2011 imac desk top threw Linux ubentu browser ?


Ok, there are a number of issues with you spelling so I am going to assume you meant the Ubuntu OS. If that is the case the Flash Player install is done by the following:

If you are using the more modern versions of Ubuntu, simply install the Adobe Flash application from Ubuntu Software Centre.

If you are using a version that does not support the Software Centre, try:

Go to the Adobe website.
  • Click on "Download the Latest Player," and choose ".deb for Ubuntu" from the drop down list.
  • Choose "Save File" from the pop up window.
  • Open a terminal window.
    The terminal window will be found under Applications -> Utilities.
  • Change to the directory where your downloaded file was saved.
    cd Download
  • Install the libcurl3 library: sudo apt-get install libcurl3
  • Install the Flash Player: sudo dpkg --install install_flash_player_<version>_linux.deb
    Replace <version> with the latest version number.
  • Restart Firefox.
  • Check that Flash Player was installed.

    How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


    Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
    Manual
    . I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

    Button keeps blinking


    It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

    Mouse and keyboard have no power


    If your mouse and keyboard work properly with another computer or laptop the problem could be :
    A) if devices are USB :
    - defective USB port : chose another USB port;
    - USB port inactivated in BIOS : check and activate;
    - motherboard defective : replace motherboard.
    B) if devices are PS/2 :
    - damaged PS/2 ports : buy a PS/2 to USB adapter for your mouse/keyboard or buy USB mouse and keyboard;
    - motherboard defective : replace it.
