Laptops don't powerup either because the battery isn't full, or it isn't plugged to the mains using the lead. if you think the above is fine then it must be because the laptops isn't accepting power in, either because of the motherboard has died, the chips have burned or the power button is faulty. if it's working using the battery but not using the charger then you need a DC socket repair. if it's plugged to the mains but there is no sign of any lights you're likely to have lost your motherboard. if your laptop does start but you see nothing on the screen its usualy the memory ram or the screen or the motherboard, plug it into an external screen and see what happens

this isn't something you can find a solution for in here, the best way is to take it to your repair shop
an independent one will do, or else I recommend a website which collects it and does it for you

I hope this helps. Please rate me.

This acer is completly deaa.getting a lot of answers but pc needs to be on it is dead no charger no on light nothing.


take out the battery and try it with just power supply ONLY connectetd to it no printer, nothing. If it still does not come on AFTER you hit the power button and NO lights test the power supply. If the power supply is good then the DC jack might be damaged. AT this point have it serviced or time to replace laptop. Good Luck.

My laptop pluged in but not charging


There could be many problems with your laptopFirst, check if your laptop was plugged into a surge protector (ex. Power Strip). If it wasn't, a surge could destroy the charger, power supply, or even motherboard.
Second, try a different charger. If it was the charger that broke, then try a different one. I have had this happen to many off my computers over the years.
If it is fried, take it to Staples, or a local computer shop. I would always recommend plugging computers into surge protectors. Good luck!

Some of my peripherals, trackball inc. want to be connected to the netbook instead of settling for my hub. What do I HAVE to connect to the computer among CD drive, hard drive, printer, keyboard,...


Most likely your USB hub is not capable of supplying enough power to support all your peripheral devices. USB devices are powered by 5 volts from the USB port. If you connect a hub to a USB port and connect a lot of devices to the hub, there is not enough 5 volt power to let all devices work. To fix this, most USB hubs have an external power option that when plugged in will supply extra power for any connected devices.
If your hub does not have an external power option I would suggest you purchase a new hub that does have an external power supply.

Good luck :)

When I unplug the printer from my Dell Latitude D610 laptop, the battery icon appears on the bottom right hand corner instead of the "ON AC power" icon and the computers shut down due to a low battery....


Your AC power supply is not providing power - The printer is supplying your laptop with power via the usb port. When you unplug the printer, the laptop runs on battery until it goes dead. You will need another AC power supply,

Good Luck

Power supply flashes green and no lights on laptop


Remove battery pack, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, then put battery pack back in and restart pc. This should take care of it. A bad memory stick can cause problems like this as well.

HP Pavilion dv2020us laptop battery won't charge


How is your power supply? does it seem like you have to wiggle your cord that connects to computer to make it recieve power?...Many laptops power supply become loose over time form moving the cord around..when it does, the battery has a hard time getting electric power to recharge. Also, you my have other problems with your lithium internal battery that powers your cmos.

Check to see if your power supply is loose and go from there. the power supply is the little hole where you connect the cord to the laptop.

let me know what the status is

Lights flicker on the front of laptop, but will not turn on.


If the power supply he used was the correct one for the laptop AND it was working correctly he?s probably right. Once of the many downsides of laptops is that most of the circuitry is built into the motherboard. With the exception of RAM most of the components are soldered which eliminates the typical do-it-your-self. That?s the main reason I make sure all our laptops have 3 to 4 years complete warranties, simply too expensive to fix otherwise. I?ve had two Dell laptops with the same symptoms over the years, both were fixed with new motherboards (one warranted the other not). Before I tossed the laptop into the recycle pile I?d make sure I tested it with the power supply Dell actually certifies for it as compared to the one the tech used. Another trick is to find someone with a similar laptop; if you can get your battery charged that will tell you once and for all if it?s a simple power supply problem or something more serious.
