Sounds like you killed the motherboard. Find a local repair shop or someone on craigslist who will diagnose it for free. Wait while they do it, should only take 5-10 minutes to confirm your worst fears.

My hp pavilion dv6-2117ax laptop won't power up (no power light on where adaptor meets laptop). Replaced power adaptor / charger and laptop powered up and operated for a day and then next day woul


The laptop probably isn't charging. Could be a bad d/c connector on the laptop or the battery is bad. Remove the battery and plug in the a/c adapter and see if it powers on. Wiggle the a/c plug in gently while pressing the power button on the laptop. It powers on and off briefly then I'd say it's the d/c jack on the laptop, bad sodder joint.

Acer 2310 travelmate, power button will not go on. There is no sound of a fan. It is in effect dead. Tried different outlet with no improvement. Unplugged everything and replugged it in.


ok, if there is no indecation that there is any power, I mean even no instant flash when you first try turning it on... sometime the power plug in the back gets loose inside. or the power adapter dies... I would try gently weglling the power plug while looking at the lights if anything happen then it is the plug. if nothing then I would try to test the adapter either by a multimeter or borrowing another adapter and seeing what happend... also try disconnecting the power and take the battery out, wait few seconds then put the battery back, then the adapter (all while looking at the lights) then try again.. still if nothing then it maybe the main board itself... best of luck

Acer aspire 5516 battery and charger problem


Hi, this could be an unhelpfull suggestion but the charger may not be compatable with your laptop. Laptops notoriosly have different power settings, you may be forced to purchase a new Acer charger. Try ebay, you may be lucky

But before you buy a new battery, You need to again repair the power plug where your adaptor's plug is inserted so that it will not create any problem later. There might be loose connection or sort wiring.. Good luck..

Ferrari 4000 laptop a/c adaptor will not charge laptop,adaptor ok


Hi

Thank you for your query it sounds like you have multiple hardware issues

1) you mention that the ac adapter does not charge, then you say ac adapter ok. Please clarify if the adapter is faulty or the battery

2) As for the line in your screen, your LCD is faulty and will need to be replaced

I would recommend that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for further investigation/repair

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Dell Inspiron 5160 won't charge.


wow, ive never seen a computer know what type of adapter is plugged into it... it definately sounds like a power system problem. three parts to this- the adapter, the battery, and the motherboard of the laptop, since that is what interprets and passes on the power from the batter/outlet to the rest of the parts of your computer. we're hoping it isnt the motherboard not recognizing your power subsystem...

but you took a good guess to replace the adapter. you want to make certain the old adapter-- the voltage etc that's written on it in plastic somewhere- that it matches exactly with your replacement adapter. (You just cant plug these thing into any computer it fits into, they have different requirements sometimes, even though theyre all laptops). If it does, then yes, I would assume it's the battery.

Try taking out the battery and running straight off the current, can you do it? Technically, you shouldnt need the battery, it will just act like a desktop computer.

You can get a reasonable aftermarket latop battery for 100-135 bucks, chinese. Compare it to what your manufacturer wants to charge you for a replacement.

BTW- youre out of warrantee, right?

Good luck!

Charger in not charging the battery


You can get an A/C adapter online on various websites or Ebay for around 20-30 dollars plus shipping. That should rule out whether the problem is your adapter or the laptop.

I have traveled to Europe. Australia and China. As this is a laptop I believe your power supply is that often black box in the middle of the electric wire you plug into your laptop. I we operate on 110 volt 60 cycle electricity. The bulk of the rest of the world operates as 240 volts and mostly 50 cycles. The power supplies for laptop I used overseas indicated they operated from 110 - 240 volts and 50 to 60 cycles approximately (small print on the adapter). If your adapter does not handle 240 volt and 50 - 60 cycle requirement you may need to secure another before leaving. The real challenge is to have the right plug adapter for the country you are in. Our two and three prong plugs do not work anywhere else I've been without adapters excluding soem bathrooms for electric shavers only and some universal plugs I have seen installed in China on my last trip (but even in China they were rare). My friend bought two different versions of adapters I believe at Radio Shack - one was a small bag of adapters that covered all of Europe and more recently a single adapter with sliders that could adjust to all the separate adapters he purchased before. I had the experience of buying an adapter in China where I do not speak Mandarin -- pointing at a British adapter and drawing the US plug got me what I wanted however you may wish to solve this problem before you arrive in Europe. Assuming you purchase adapters before leaving the clerk at the store may be able to confirm the suitability of your power supply for general european operation, I tended to double check with the local hotel staff or friends keeping in mind that all counties and some areas can be different.
