Help! No power.

I can not get my laptop to power up. I have it plugged in but the battery won't charge and it won't power up. I even bought a new cord thinking the old one shorted out but the new one won't work. Help!

Re: Help! No power.

Remove your battery, then use only the AC adaptor, if is the same the problem is from your Mainboard/ check to supplier if is still warranty. So that you can claim for it.

Return it! It's a factory defect they just admitted to it online. Call HP and they'll fill you in on the details.

Could be down to a few things. First it is worth checking all the connections and making sure they are good and clean.
Im presuming that if it wont charge, it dies when you disconnect from the mains? If not let the battery die completely and then recharge fully. Discharging, Charging & discharging is also an effective method of calibrating the battery
If the battery gets hot while plugged in, you should remove the battery and allow everything to cool down (some systems have a CMOS setting to prevent over charging, this can take 3-5 days in a cool environment to unlock the battery)
Have a look at the power options in the control panel and make sure everything is reset to default settings.
I once disable hibernate option for a troublesome dell and this allowed the battery to take a charge.
A more aggressive route is to check the bios settings and check if you need to update
It is worth noting that if the laptop is new (or still in warranty) bring it back, it could be a faulty battery, which is not unheard of!

SOURCE: Acer power cord

if you can use your notebook without the battery with the power cord attached, then the battery ist defective. If your notebook doesn't power on at all without battery, then the power cord is faulty.

Battery won't charge

So put the old power cord back on since you say it charged the battery normally. Why did you change it if it was charging the battery? It's quite possible that the new power cord is faulty. Just because it is new does not mean it works.

Remove the battery and plug the new power cord in. Does it boot the laptop up? Are you able to function with the new power cord plugged in. If so, then your battery is more than likely dead and needs to be replaced. The battery only has a useful life and once it is completely bad it will not charge.

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \

Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

The battery on my laptop stopped charging, but was working for a over a week, then it was acting funny and slow.. I shut down moved to another room and it won't boot up! The light doesn't come on...

I think your power cord is bad. It probably was not charging the battery at all and so now all your battery power has drained since you were running on it. Once the battery power is drained and if the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working the computer will not boot because it has no power source.

Some AC Adapter & Power Cords have lights on them to let you know when it is plugged in if it is working. Normally when you plug the power cord in the laptop somewhere on the laptop lights up to let you know it is receiving power. Sometimes the light is where you plug it in, sometimes at the front of the laptop or right above the keyboard area.

I thing you need a power cord. And don't settle for one of the one size fits all (with a removable tip designed to fit any laptop) that the big box stores will sell you.

If your power cord is good and the laptop is not receiving power then the problem could be your DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the computer.

Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Samsung r510 battery not working

New Battery will not charge? So will the laptop power on with just the Power Cord plugged in? If no, then the power cord is bad, no wonder the battery won't charge.

My Asus Eee PC 1001PXD battery won't charge. The charges light is on but nothing happens and now the battery is completely dead and I cannot get my notebook on

Your problem is far more than the battery. Your problem is the power cord. Laptops for the most part will work off the power cord even if the battery is dead or even if the battery is not in the laptop. Your power cord charges your battery and if it is bad it will not charge it. You've been working off your battery even though you might have had the power cord plugged in, but if it's bad and not charging the battery, the battery drains and then you can't get the laptop to power on at all. Go purchase a ac adapter and power cord that is designed for your system. Don't buy one that some of the big box stores sell that has a an interchangeable plug at the end designed to fit just about any laptop. Those will eventually burn *********** board out.
