It seems the battery is dead and needs replacement. The cells in the battery do not seem to maintain charge

    Yes it should but in this case, the battery indicator gives a false signal to the laptop saying it is charged and hence no orange light.



    If your laptop is 7 months old, it should be under warranty. You should be a free replacement battery. Good luck... :)

No power


Hello, If the battery won't charge and the laptop won't turn on but the ac adapter works with other laptops, then the problem is the port where you plugin the ac adapter. Some of the laptops has it built in to the motherboard. So you might need to have it repaired by a technician. Or if the laptop is still in warranty, you might need to send it to the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced. But if the laptop works without the battery, or it will turn on but the battery indicator is not lighting up, you're facing one of these problems. 1. The battery itself is dead. 2. the battery bay is loose 3. the battery itself is loose Hope this helps

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

I have plugged in my new laptop correctly but when I tried to switch it on the laptop does not respond. Is my laptop broken or am I missing something?


Hello,

Thank you using fixya.

Here are the things that you need to do:

1. Use a different power outlet. Maybe the outlet is bad.
2. Check the ac adapter. check if the light is lit. The light is a power indicator. If there's no power on it, then, you have to make sure that it's not broken or it's connected properly to the power outlet.
3. Check for any power indicators in the laptop. Like lights lit or the charge indicator. If there's none, then, the laptop is not receiving any power. It might be caused by a defective battery.
4. Remove the battery. Plug in the laptop to the ac adapter without the battery on it. Check for power indicators. Press the power button.

Let me know if there's any development. Leave me a message in this post.

Hi,

Flashing power light indicates that there's a problem with the RAM. You're referring to a Standy by mode when you turned on the computer. If you have a spare ram you can try to use 1 to check if the RAM that you're using is faulty. Mobo is fine dont need to worry about that. No need to remove the CMOS battery. If you know someone who has the same ram or another computer you can try that. Usually it happens to Desktop Computers that monitor was on standby mode when they have a bad ram.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Battery will not charge


Hi cdravi

Laptops have a power supply control section attached to, or part of the main board. This allows the laptop to switch charging on and off, and control power supply function to different areas of the machine. Sounds like you have a fault in this part of the computer. Off to Dell Service for that one I am afraid.

MSI laptop technical problem


Sounds like the laptop used up all the battery power and turned itself off. Its doing this possible because your AC Adapter is not functioning correctly. Most AC Adapters have an indicator light to show wether they are working or not. Does your have this and is it on? If the device is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for a replacement. http://www.msicomputer.com/support/sup_NBService.asp If the device is no longer under warrany, then I would recommend getting a new AC adapter. Make sure you get the same model AC adapter that originally came with the laptop. This will ensure that you have the correct voltage and amperage.
