Try a different outlet....
if that doesn't work, then...
Your Battery Might be damaged. (partially charging any type of rechargable battery/pack can substantially shorten the lifespan of said battery.) I would take your laptop to a repair shop or store and have the battery tested as well as the AC adapter.

Battery doesn/t charge Instructions for charging

If the laptop works OK with the acadapter, then the adapter is OK. Does the charge/battery light come on? How old is the battery?
If the charge light comes on the battery is low power. If the battery is over 24months old and has been used in the laptop all that time, it is probably exhausted and need a replacement.

My laptop wont start up. When I press the on button yellow lights come on and then turn red and then it shuts down.Why?

That would be of the following. There is no Operating system anymore on the hard drive to do a malware virus. Or also the motherboard needs to be replaced. Usually if there is a Orange/yellow light on the board inside, the motherboard needs replaced. Hope that helps you out. First try to reinstall windows from the CD, if doesn't let you boot from the CD ROM (F12) (F2) then it is the motherboard. Hope this helps you

My Dell Inspiron 1525 just stopped! Won't turn on!

Ok not an issue follow these steps
1. check the ac adapter has a light on it when connected to the laptop and when disconnected from the laptop.
2.If the ac adapter has light then connect it to the system and then press and hold the Fn key present at the bottom left hand corner and then turn on the sytem . Check if there is any light that comes on and then turns off . If it does make a note of it and at the same time check if the sytme beeps , if it does make a note of the interval of beeps

3. if there is no response then you could try removing something called as the memory from ur laptop by flipping the laptop over disconnect the acadapter and battery check for a bay whicj\h reads C/M on it which is the memry bay . U will find memory modules which is green in colour . u just need to move the latch on either sides of it to release it . Try one memory and then turn on the ystem . If this doesnt fix most probably its an issue with the motherboard .

INSPIRON SYSTEM HAVE ISSUE WITH MOTHERBOARD hence try using a different ac adapter amd check the acadapter port for damages .

Acer 5920 aspire wont start

1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well.

2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Pressand hold on the laptop’s power button for 10 seconds to drain the powerflea.

3. Connect the AC Adapter for laptop to a known good power outlet, check ACAdapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not makinga bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet.

4. Connect now the AC Adapter tothe laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected tothe laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the ACAdapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptopAC socket if it is loose.

5. If AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try topower on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboardproblem.

6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs todo. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this whenlaptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptopCMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails thenreplace motherboard. I hope this helps.
