My laptop is not powering on help


1.Connect the Ac adapter to a known good power outlet. Check the Power LED indicator on AC adapter (without plugging into the Notebook). We are only checking the power AC adapter to see if that is working.
2.If LED on the AC adapter is not lit (when unplugged from notebook), reseat the AC adapter brick and cable. If still there is no light on AC Adapter replace AC adapter and Power cord.
3.If LED on the AC Adapter goes off only after connecting to Notebook, the issue is with the motherboard. Replace Motherboard, DC-In port (AC adapter connector).
4.If the AC Adapter LED is always ON, take a technician's help and reseat the Power Button Board. You can refer to the Service Manual for details on how to reseat the Power Button Board. (NOTE: Before the notebook chassis is opened ensure all the power connections including battery and external devices are disconnected)

Your battery is bad and causing a problem. most likely it is feeding an incorrect voltage into the computer. replace teh battery and it should fix the problem. If you have already replaced the battery with a new one the charging system is faulty or the AC adapter.

best way is to just try out the battery on another laptop, or try another battery on yours. If the laptop is not very old, and I suppose yours isn't more than 2 years old, your battery shouldn't be dead.

My laptop won't power up. I have removed the battery and tried starting it, nothing. I removed the AC source and tried with only the battery and nothing. I noticed the led is a little dimmer than normal...


I know this sounds simple but have you checked the power connections at the brick (middle of the power cord) often this comes loose and is not noticed until battery is dead. The leds staying dim is what made me think of this. They will go out when on battery only especially if power cord is not producing any power. When you plug in the laptop do you see a little battery charging light come on?

Acer won't turn on ,no battery being used only ac power


I have the feeling that the battery has to be in place to allow the AC power to be transferred to the mother board

Inspiron 5160 screen is blank


It seems to me the LCD cable is either not properly unplugged or LCD ha gone bad.
Connect external monitor to the laptop and check if you have the Video on the external monior. If everything looks fine on external monitor then you can get the LCD replaced.
In case system does not power up and there are no indications of power.
Here are the steps:
Connect only the AC Adapter and take the battery out.
Check if you have a green led lit on the AC Adapter.
If AC Adapter does not has a green led please replace it with a known good AC Adapter.
If the AC Adapter has a green led but still no power it can be the system board which has gone bad.
