    April 1, 2009, just updated my antivirus yesterday and all was working well. Tried power up today, and no power at all, even with A/c plugged in. Battery shows full charge too. Is it possible the April Fools virus did this? Running XP Pro.

    Help.

    Does your dell power adapter have a solid green light on it when it is plugged in? When the power adapter is plugged into the laptop, do you see any illuminated lights on the laptop?

Try checking the starter selenoid. Sounds like something is resetting when there is no power in the system but will not reset when there is power.

You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

silly question, but have you tried different fresh batteries? sometimes batteries go dead in the store, especially if they are cheap batteries. try another fresh set.

I put in a freshly charged battery and go shoot a youth football game. After a series of shots, my battery is "dead". I turn the camera off and then back on and can get a few more shots before it goes dead...


How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? It also wouldn't hurt to visit the support section of the Nikon website to see if they've posted any firmware updates.

Will not power on


It should power on using internal memory. Your problem is normally due to weak/dead batteries. Make sure that you have fresh batteries, or freshly charged batteries, installed. If changing the batteries out does not eliminate the problem, the camera is a likely candidate for the repair shop.

Ac adaptor use drains batteries


Hi,
As a system gets a little age on it, the battery naturally decays. Also, each time you plug the ac adapter into the laptop, the adapter connection on the motherboard becomes a bit looser on the solder points, all of which contributes to the symptoms you describe.
You could try a fresh battery.
The standard rule is a battery is wireds to last between 500-600 cycles, then it's dead. They claim it's a safety feature.
Good luck, hope that helps.
Thanks

to answer your question "will laptop work if battery is dead, even when its plugged in to an outlet"...the answer is yes. you can even remove your battery and run it off outlet power. As far as your dead laptop...not enough info to diagnose.
