Re: JVC MP-XV841GB will not power up - power supply ok
1st when your going to buy a new battery be sure that you bring your laptop so that you can try it and ask or complain at the same time. Buy a BRANDED one because it has a long time usage and warranty plus their quality. For changing your battery, they will help you and teach you how to do it but its not hard though its just on the bottom of your laptop. Note: Shut down first your laptop before removing the battery. hope that helps!

On start-up press F2. You don't have time to do that because that option comes and goes very quickly. Power it up and just keep pressing F2 until it gives you the option to press F8. There is where you can get to the bios. If your log-in is that equivalent of the administrator, go to passwords and clear them. You may be locked out because of your user account not allowing access.
Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.
hello u might have tried this site already but hey it is worth a shot here is the link just copy and paste http://www.driversfixed.com/jvc.php . if that dont do it then we will try to find them thanks bob
It is possible you have two dud batteries. Recharageable batteries have a limited life, they have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles.
With the battery removed and only the power supply connected and the laptop powered up, when you touch the connector on the laptop and the laptop does not shut down then the laptop connector is OK.
If you can verify your new battery is OK the the fault could be the power supply adapter, if may not produce enought current to run and charge the battery. Try charging the battery overnight by turning off the laptop and leaving on the mains t charge. Borrow a mains adapter and test it on your computer.
You can also check the BIOS setting for power management, ie. hibernate, low power shut down etc.
Apparently, JVC does not want people re-installing Windows on their laptops unless its via the recovery partition. I was not able to find the drivers on their download site:
And no one got back to me after submitting your question here:
Since the drivers must be installed already, and are probably done after the initial Windows install, try to locate a folder on the C: Drive that has all the specific JVC drivers. Other vendors such as Dell, HP and IBM do this. It would be in something like c:\Drivers or C:\JVC.
I would not erase the recovery partition until you have the drivers. But once you have the drivers, you can use this utility to delete and resize partitions:
Download the .iso file and use a CD burner program to make a bootable CD. Then boot you laptop with this CD. The GParted utility is a graphical program and is very intuitive to use. Plus, it doubles and triples checks with you before it does anything permanent, and allows you to undo changes before it becomes permanent.
