Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook
Computer was running on battery power. Battery ran low and computer turned off. I connected the computer to the wall outlet but I get no indicator light on the power connection where it plugs into computer. I have verified that the wall outlet is working. I am assuming a faulty power adaptor except that when I measure the output of the power adaptor with a volt meter I get two pins each with 6.5V on them. Do you know if this is correct?
Also, is there any kind of reset on the computer? I have seen some that have a small hole that accepts the straightend end of a paper clip in order to reset some sort of trip.
Thank you for your time
Mine does this sometimes. Usually when I let the battery run all the way down while I'm still using it.
What I do is attach the power cord. Then I sort of flex the magnetic connection up and down to see if the light will flick on. If so, I then press the esc or space bar, or clik the track pad a couple of time to jar it out of the sleep mode. This is especially useful if I have unsaved work that I was working on before the battery ran down.
Otherwise, you just leave it plugged in for about 10 minutes to let it charge some. Press the button on the bottom of the batter to see if the charge has built, then try to wake it up with some of the previous mentioned tactics above.
And if that doesn't work, just hold down the power key til you hear it clik or power down, then hold it down again til you hear a loud beeeeeeeeep noise. Then release it. The computer should then restart...but any unsaved work will be lost. : (
Hope this helps!
Let me know!
