Re: No Power

It might be the connection where you plug the adapter into the Laptop (Might be?) It could have stuffed up.....When you plug it in again this time hold it flush to the unit or juggle it as you are pushing the start button to turn it on if you have success after a few seconds or so then theres your problem you have a loose connection in that drastic socket and you more than like will have to replace it. If that is not the problem then it could be several things the battery, the motherboard. the rams, the hard-drive anything?

Regarding your question you could try a power discharge for your device:
- disconnect the AC adapter
- unplug the battery (if detachable)
- press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds (to discharge the components)
- plug the AC adapter only (without the battery if it is detachable)
- turn on the unit

If the battery is not detachable, please follow the procedure with the battery attatched.

- turn off the unit
- disconnect the AC adapter
- press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds (to discharge the components)
- plug the AC adapter
- turn on the unit

No a/c power light on laptop


Well the first thing you should check is the amount of power output to the power supply. for example the computer needs 12V but the AC Adapter only gives 9V.
If that's not it then the actual green light is not receiving that information from the motherboard. that's not an issue if the battery get's filled up and the laptop works normally . If you notice that the laptop tends to shut down quickly when it's not plugged in then the battery is worn out. These things happen since the a laptop battery becomes very inefficient after 2-3 years.
One more thing - try to rotate the input end of the ac adapter cable. maybe it's not making good contact inside the laptop.
Hope this helps.

I do have a toshiba Satellite L300D and No full power or no display . the power only turn on but no booting . I am just wondering what could be the problem. In fact this happened only after I tried to fix...

As per your descritption, it might be due to AC adapter problem which is not giving enough power to notebook to power on. However, try to power on the notebook only on battery power or alternate AC adapter. If it does not turn on, then it might be due to motherboard problem due to some short circuit in the AC adapter.

Additionally, please perform the below steps before trying the above procedure:

1. Shut the computer down.
2. Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the battery.
3. Press the power button down for about 30-60 seconds.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and the battery.
5. Restart the computer.

Shut off and won't come back. It's like it is dead.

follow this procedure:
1. unplug the ac adapter and keep it unplugged.
2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds(Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up)
4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (A power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in)
5. Normally power on the notebook.
6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up. If the battery indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

Benq laptop power unit 'short'?

The fact that the LED light on the power supply tells me that its receiving power, look where the AC adapter goes and check the pin to see if it is loose, this sounds like feedback from the computer causing the power supply light to dim or go out

let me know how you get on
