Re: Laptop wont start no lights

Check the power jack inside the laptop that you plug the cord into. Can you jiggle the cord? It's possible the power jack inside the laptop has broken off the motherboard. The reason I suspect that is the fact your wife says it works sideways. It's possible when she is holding it sideways the broken part is sometimes resting on the board just right to make the connection. Unplug the cord and take something small like a q-tip and see if you can move the power jack around inside, or if it's even still there where it should be. The computer would be able to turn on without a battery plugged in as long as you plug it into a wall. If you take the battery out and it still doesn't kick on then you can rule out any problems with the battery. Take a look, if you discover the power jack to be broken like I suspect it may be you're going to have to take it to a repair shop to have a replacement soldered in. You can actually defer some of the cost of this by purchasing the replacement dc jack yourself. You can find them on ebay for very cheap. just type in your brand and model laptop dc power jack and you should fine a ton of them. Then just take it to a computer shop and they should just charge you 1 hour - 2 hours labor depending on the shop. I hope this has explained your question in detail. If I've helped you please don't forget to rate me. Peter

Laptop lost battery back-up suddenly.

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Advent modena m200 will not turn on or charge.

Connect the AC power adapter to the laptop and confirm that the AC power indicator is on (I wish you stated the brand of laptop). If the AC power indicator is not on, try and get a working AC power adapter for your laptop and connect it to your laptop.

With the AC power adapter connected, you can power on your laptop. If the laptop powers on from the OS you can see if the Battery is charging or not.
If the laptop does not power with the AC power adapter connected, then the power port of the laptop is bad.

However, if all these are okay and the battery still does not charge, the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.

Hi justlai33

Not to worry, it is a normal process when any laptop is started. It first check if it is connected to power and starts charging if connected to power.

As far as battery life status is good and fine, you can continue working on your laptop.

You will get a pop of notification when the battery life about to end, till then you can work with out any tension.

Thank you

Battery wont charge and laptop wont start using

Check the pin inside the connection (end of the cord) which you put into your machine, or check if the power connection on the circuitboard is damaged (you are able to wiggle it a little bit around)

Dell computer use the pin inside the connection from the adapter to recognise if the adapter you are using is a dell adapter or not. If the pin is damaged, or you are using an adapter from another brand. You will not be able to charge, but only power your pc.

My T42 suddenly wont recharge the battery or wrk off mainsadapter

If the Laptop wont work off the power adepter, it also will not charge. The adepter could be bad (even if showing a power light) or the connector on the laptop could be broken. The best test is to take the battery out, attach the power adepter and try to start the computer if it starts, your battery is at fault. If nothing, suspect eh charger first. Be sure the pin on the Laptop power connector isn't bent or broken.

Laptop won't start-up

Can you tell me if the status lights on the power adapter and/or the battery turns on? Because you are telling me the status lights only stay on for 30 seconds, this should be a power connection problem.

One other possibility: can you tell me the climate environment of where you use your laptop?
