Question about ASUS Eee PC 900 Notebook

1 Answer

Will mot boot up

My computer charger had a bad connection in the first place. Anyway i went in my room and my dog accidentally yanked the cord causing it to lose the connection. I turned it back on and it worked fine then it lost the connection again. Thats when it didn't come back on. I noticed that the green light that blinks when it is turned off does not blink. What to do. It will turn on and off but doesn't show the screen.

    I have similar problem with asus eee 901. I've just bought
    it. It had linux, but it was changed into windows xp. Since it had been fully
    charged only once I was using it on battery and setting it up with new
    programs. The battery discharged and it went on stand-by. I woke it up and
    waited until battery was dead. That started charging it and turned the pc on,
    but the screen went white and stayed that way for couple of seconds. Moments
    latter it turned black and now it doesn’t seem to work.

    What could have happened? What can I do?

    When i try to turn the PC on power indicator is lit, battery indicator is
    working normally (it is charging right now) and the ssd indicator is lit all
    the time.

    Is the power jack on your laptop loose now? Does the computer still work off battery power alone?

The cord is probably ruined either by the dog or by folding the cable when you pack it up. The charger brick itself is probably fine but you will need to buy a new charger cable. Contact ASUS to determine how much that will cost.

The labtop doesnt boot when the charger is placed in and it also goes of when the charger is put in

Is the AC cord the original? Has it been damaged? Have you tried another AC cord, with the EXACT same power specs? It may be a damaged AC jack. Sometimes a pull or tug on the cord while plugged in will loosen the connection. If you wiggle the cord at the jack plug does it cause the charge LED to blink? Does the computer work on battery?

My computer was working fine last night. When I was online, the dogs came running thru the room and pulled the cord out, from the wall AND the netbook. I closed the computer and this morning, nothing. ...

Try and take the battery out and leave the machine connected to the AC power and see if it will boot up without the battery. You may have shorted the battery out .

I can't boot up my latop with the powercord is in. without power cord, no problem.

There are two possible causes I can think of, one which has an easy solution and another that doesn't. There are two circuits that your laptop can power itself from, one from direct power (your charger) and the other from your battery. When the laptop senses that it has direct power it switches to that circuit and will run at maximum speed and brightness. When the power is not present it will change to a different circuit and adjust speed and brightness depending on your power saving settings. There may be a fault in the circuit that feed from your charger so when you plug it in the laptop senses that power is present but the fault in that circuit stops it from booting. This might be caused by a loose connection from your charger socket to your motherboard, a bad charger that is producing a low voltage or a bad motherboard. The first two are fairly inexpensive to fix, the last one isn't. Sorry I can't help more

Earlier my laptop shut down with no warning even though the charger was all connected and plugged in. now even though the charger is plugged in everytime i try to turn it back on the needs to be charged...

This could be caused by several things, but try the obvious first. I just bought a brand new power supply, and in less than a week the customer called and said it stopped working. I suggested she take the cord from the old charger and try it - it worked - the brand new cord lasted less than a week. The other thing that could cause this is a bad connection on the end of the power supply, going into the computer. It could even be a bad power supply.The last thing I can think of is a bad battery that won't hold a charge.

Battery problem...

This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities. 1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge.
2.- Battery is bad.
3.- Battery charger board is bad.

1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge
Verify that the AC and or DC cable is not bad by testing the computer only with the power plug connected and the battery out of the laptop.
2.- Battery is bad
It is possible that if the power plug is good that the computer battery is bad. Leave the computer connected to the power with the battery connected in the computer for at least one hour; if the battery does not charge, consider having the battery and/or the laptop serviced or repaired.
If the computer and/or battery is not in warranty consider just replacing the battery as it is very likely that it is just a bad battery.
3.- Battery charger board is bad
If the battery has been replaced or an alternate battery from an alternate identical laptop does not work in the computer, it is likely that the power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.

This will fix your problem.

Dell Inspiron B130 wont boot

First remove the battery from the PC! Leave it off for a short period of time! about 2min. This allows the computer to erase anything in temporary memory. Place the battery back onto th PC and try to boot it up. The other thing you can do is boot the pc up with just the power cord in place. See if it boots just from the power cord. Sometime the batteries from dell causes the whole entire PC to become unresponsive.
