    This just sounds plain weird. For one, laptops (Hey, I'm using a HP Pavilion DV6408nr myself to type this) typically do run off battery. However, if the icon in the upper right of the system tray (for Vista) shows a plug with a battery to the right of it, it means you're on AC. if you see just the battery, you're on battery.

    Which icon are you seeing?

Medion MD 98200 My laptop will not turn on after my son removed the battery pack accidentally

Turn on the laptop without the battery, using only the AC adapter. If doesn't work remove the AC Adapter and battery. Hold down the power button for 30-45 seconds then plugged in the AC Adapter and put battery back in then [on]

Hello , i have acer aspire 3680 laptop , i have face same problem. when i am connecting ac adepter then my laptop will hang and none of the procedure will another problem is when start my laptop...


Try to remove the battery and power up your laptop, if the problem is still the same try to press F6 or F8 and start into Last known good configuration. and disable the automatic restart. But back up your data and reformat your laptop. it might have viruses on it that triggering the restart.

Good luck

My Yamaha keyboard YPT-210 just stopped working one day. It won't turn on with either the AC/DC adapter nor with six fresh AA batteries. Any ideas?

This is likely a problem near the power input jack or the regulator. It requires opening the unit. If you are not electronically adept, best to take it to a shop for repair.

The turnsignal usually don't work. Wehn they do work it is usually when you are giving it throttle they will not work at all with eng. not running even with hot battery.

check the battery voltage , should be over 12v with the engine stopped and 13-14v with the engine running, or it may just need a new flasher can, make sure the bulbs are all coming on including the dash and they are the correct wattage for the bike

My T42 suddenly wont recharge the battery or wrk off mainsadapter

If the Laptop wont work off the power adepter, it also will not charge. The adepter could be bad (even if showing a power light) or the connector on the laptop could be broken. The best test is to take the battery out, attach the power adepter and try to start the computer if it starts, your battery is at fault. If nothing, suspect eh charger first. Be sure the pin on the Laptop power connector isn't bent or broken.
