Won't turn on - dead dead dead

Checked e-mail this morning. Worked OK. two hours later nothing! The AC adaptor measures 19vdc output (not under load, i.e. unplugged). Little green light(s) on front DON'T light up. For a long time, the ON button has had to be pressed only on the front right corner and pressed rather hard to turn it on. The laptop doesn't do anything using battery either. PLEASE HELP SOON!! Thank you

Hi, This sounds like the power supply circuitry inside the notebook. 1. AC Adaptor - OK but if connected to the mains and plug to the laptop, there should be an indicator in the laptop that it is so, per your post none; 2. Battery - doesn't power the laptop; 3. Power Button - press hard and long, not normal. Guess that leaves only the laptop itself. This would involve opening the unit and diagnosing the power supply section which includes the jack, reverse protection diode, smc fuse(s), charging components, power button and others. Probably you should seek the services of a qualified professional though I am getting the impression that you are technically adept likewise. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

Your hard drive may have gone south. Remove it and check with diagnostic software. Bad sectors in critical areas of operating system data will do this.

My remote speaker system works with the batteries but not with the AC adaptor plugged in to the speaker.


I would suggest to check AC outlet first where adaptor is pluged in,if Ok measure output voltage from adaptor to see if there is any (using any voltage multimeter with AC/DC)
Check label on adaptor shold be writen AC or DC output ,and value 3V,6,9,12,24,48 etc...
If adaptor is ok then problem is power jack mounted in to the speaker (cold solder joints' or damage)

The laptop would not boot up. It was hooked up to an external screen and then a few hours later, there was nothing on the screen. It wont boot up into a POST screen


Dead Laptop?

Try firstly removing the laptop's battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any further.
If the adaptor is fine then you have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.

HP L2000 Sudden shutdown wont power up power supply good


what makes you think the ac park is ok
19vdc measured with a voltmeter proves this , only.
a 2005 (as old as) Laptop
its not new, things this old do fail.
Laptops are like dog years.. 7:1. so yours is 84years old
to fix a desktop is super easy
to test a laptop takes greater skills, the take down. is tricky
we take out the battery,
the the pack just make the fan run in the PC
does it>? if not the pack is bad.
or the MOBO regs are shut down. (shorts on any thing inside
some times the 19vdc is ok, at that pack
then 1 inches inside the PC its dead due to that silly power jack loves to fail. but not taking the thing down and testing that
its all just a guessing game...
the only insight there is on electronics, is power first.
no power, no joy.
test the power feeds first.

Ac power doesnt work only in battery mode,adaptor output is ok


sounds like the power connector (where you plug into pc) is going bad. try twisting / wiggling connector. pause for a few seconds between twists to give circuitry chance to reconize power input. sometimes there is a green led that will light up when power adaptor is inserted. you can use that as a reference.

Lightning strike ac adaptor is fried


Your phone did expirence a surge that probably blew the ac adaptor which happens most of the time, u can buy one of those universal adaptors and look on the back of the old adaptor for the output voltage it will usually read between 3 and 8 volts DC.Set the universal adAptor voltage to the setting right below the voltage output on the back of the ac adaptor.

Your power adaptor might be faulty.  Yes, you can measure to have 6 volts.  But due to faulty electronic component in the power adaptor, the 6 volts will be dropped to a very low level due to "loading effect"  when you connect to the router.
I had the same problem but could not find the original power adaptor.  I replaced it with a 3rd party power adaptor.  You must ensure that the 3rd party power adaptor can provide 6V output with minimum 2000mA (2 amperes) and correct connector size.
