The wrong adapter must have fried the motherboard. They dont have the conventional fuse but there is one there which they bridge in or around the cable adapter area it will look like its lifted or blackened slightly on the soldered side. You can try to bridge it by using a wide like screw driver in the area where the power source goes into the laptop. You shouldnt get a shock its an adapter......trace along the power route...if no success look on the top of the board and see if any thing looks blown like a resistor or capicitor. good luck!!! I know how you feel but its not the end of that laptop you can replace the motherboard at least youll have spare parts. Thats a good work horse that model? tinkering like your doing is learning good on you!

My Vtech vsmile didn't work a the time I push the power button never happend my batterie are test and are brand new an i try to connect direct with a power supply never work again


There are problems with the power adaptors. Did you use a VSmile power adaptor, or something that just seemed to fit the unit? Using the wrong power adaptor (like unknowingly plugging a Leapfrog power adaptor) into the unit can cause damage to the Vsmile Board.
Push and hold the power (smile) button for one minute, then install fresh batteries. if it powers back up, then try:

Dirty Smartridges (the game cartridges) are to blame for about 90% of VTech Vsmile products not powering up.
In some instances, the cartridge slot on the unit itself can become damaged and will cause no power up.
Kids (of all ages) can dirty a smartridge in less than a second, and render the whole system dead.

GPS doesnt turn on with power cord adaptor or 12v lighter socket


if you can verify that the car charger is ok, try plugging it in to your computer using the usb cable. the 1412 should charge with the usb cable. if it still doesnt turn on, try and reset the unit,little pin hole on the side.

Low battery, won't charge


connect the garmin to your computer using the usb port. It will start charging then. For some reason when the battery goes dead in this unit the only way to charge it is with computer. the car adaptor will not work once the battery gets real low.

I have a problem with asus eee 901. I've just bought it. It had linux, but it was changed into windows xp. Since it had been fully charged only once I was using it on battery and setting it up with new...


Remove the battery for a couple of minutes while the unit is not plugged into the a/c adaptor. Reinstall the battery, plug the unit into the a/c adaptor, and see if it will boot up.

Won't turn on.


yes the lap top can boot up with the ac adaptor without battery .but if there is a problem in its RAM  the memory chip.it will still power on with adaptor but will not go further then that.or the other problem can be its main board getting short in between.get the laptop checked at proper professional repair center before further use as because if you just try to turn it on several times the internal components which are short will get heated and will short many other small components and the reparing cost will get increased.

When first setting up the laptop do we need to charge the battery completely even when using power adaptor?This was sent overseases and was in storeage for awhile now it will not power on at all.


No, it should start right away, even with a dead battery.

Try removing the battery and just using the power adapter to start the computer.

If that doesn't work, let me know.

I have a compaq presario V5204NR


Try starting it with just the adaptor or just the battery.
If the adaptor is broken it might not properly power-up, same goes for the battery. You'll need to exclude these two first.

If it starts with just the adaptor: dead battery.
If it starts with just the battery: defective adaptor (broken connections, insufficient power etc.)

In both cases you should probably call upon your warranty. That is, it that is still applicable.

If both situations don't work, let me know and we'll think further.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.
