Nc6320 Laptop power

I have a fairly new Hp laptop which usually works great...sometimes when i shut it down it wont start back up....the power light will come on and the battery charge indicator light will begine flashing...in a few seconds it just shuts back down....i tried to start from battery power and from AC power with battery installed and removed..same results...i checked the AC adaptor with a meter and it reads fine.........then out of the blue it will power up and boot fine...when it does the battery power shows fine...i tried a new battery and still same thing...when it finally boots it works great with no problems or warnings...i have updated virus scan and spyware and both show no problems...i even tried back-up to an earlier date..when i tried to start it on AC power with battery removed i pushed power button for 30sec to dispell any risidaul power...i am lost as to what could be the problem..i know computers fairly well and like i said when it does boot up it works perfect and there is no indication as to what the problem could be.

Hello the first thing to make sure of is that the ac adaptor cable is not having any partial contacts ofany kind whereby power gets into the laptop irregularly.this could have adverse effect on the circuitry. it is not enough just checking the output of the ac adapter by a meter.try straighten the cable from the adapter and check the meter for voltage fluctuations. if the above is okay then the problem could be on board leve.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

HP G6000 laptop wont start


Extract your battery from your laptop for 12 min, then start your computer using your power cable (don't use your battery), if not try pressing F2 rapidly when opening, after you open your operating system try changing your graphics card drivers.

Compaq nx5000 with new battery and new power


Dear,

Try pressing the CAPS LOCK. If CAPS LOCK is responding then it is surely your inverter.

It is a known problem with the nx5000 series laptop.

The FAN switches off because Intel SpeedStep which is absolutely normal.

I faced and solved at least 6 - 7 such problems on different nx5000 laptops

If CAPS LOCK is not responding then its your motherboard.

Good Luck and Regards

Pavilion dv7 starts up then shuts down. If I remove the power cord and plug it in right away I get nothing. No light at dc jack or on the front of the laptop. If I wait a wile I some times can get the...


This sounds like you have a bad DC jack on your motherboard. This is one of the most common problems with laptops and can be caused by jarring the DC plug in or hitting it into something or simply from normal use. As a result the pins on the DC jack become loose and consequently do not provide a charge to the laptop and battery. Wiggling the plug can make the loose pins contact sometimes which would explain why it "sometimes" works when you unplug it and plug it back in. Of course if this is the case then your battery is mostly out of power and that is why it powers off after a couple seconds. This repair costs between $150-300 from a professional repair shop and I would not recommend trying it yourself unless you've had experience soldering DC jacks
Another issue could be the CPU fan/heat skin if this is failing or the CPU is overheating the laptop will power off.
Please comment if you need further assistance

Laptop won't start


If you can afford it a new laptop will be your best bet. They have really come down in price. I have a Compaq laptop that had the same problem. If I took the battery out and keep it unplugged for a few days it would boot up but only for about an hour then shut down and not reboot until I did the same thing. This has gone on for about a year. I even disassembled it , put in a new CMOS battery and the same. I was just about to give up on it and one day it just started working and has been for about a month now. I'm sure it is going to go back out but it will give me a chance to do some more testing on it. Hope this helps.
