Will not power up, the charger checks fine. The connector on the motherboard seems good. Does the battery need to be installed to work on AC?

    When I plug the charger in the AC light will flash but goes out immediately. I am checking the motherboard connection for a bad solder connection. The connector itself appears to be good, not loose.

    Thank you for the replies. I know with some models the battery must be installed, or good to work on AC power but could not find the info on this one.

    You do not need the battery to use the laptop on AC. If your DC connecto is not loose, the you have a problem on the system board.

    No you don't need the battery installed to power it on AC. I have powered up my friends Satellite 45 without the battery.

    Take out the battery and only hook up the ac adaptor. Tell me if you get at least lights on the front of the laptop?

Could be an actual problem with the power suppy ( power brick ) thats the first thing I would check.

How to test a power brick
If your power adapter is dead, then replace it. If its not then you have a problelm with your power connector which could need re-soldering on the motherboard, or you could have a problem with your computers motherboard.

Good Luck!

How do i fix an Acer aspire 4730z that will not charge the battery and has the charge light no longer comes on, is the motherboard bad?


Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

There is a cmos/ rtc battery but that would have nothing to do with powering on your laptop. Most likely there is an issue in the circuit at the DC power jack. If the connection seems loose, or moving the plug at the point where it connects to the computer gives a glimmer of power then it is the jack. The DC jack is usually soldered to the motherboard and requires some knowledge to repair. If the jack is okay then there is a problem further up in the power circuit on the motherboard which means trouble.

This is what you power jack looks like and yours is not soldered, but has a 4 pin connector that plugs in to the motherboard. Much easier to replace than a soldered connection. Click HERE to see it.

P.S. Just because there is a green light on the adapter it doesn't mean power is being distributed to the connector tip. You may want to try a different adapter before spending money to have it diagnosed.

Battery installed power shows but not charging battery, new battery and charger. thanks.


Hi

Its a common issue for DELL Laptops usually if the battery and charger are working fine the culprit is the motherboard. If its still under warranty have them replace the motherboard and it will be good as new.Thanks

I dont seem to get power to my laptop I left it on charge all night last night MAybe I wasnt supposed to do that. What do you think do I need a new battery or what?


Several possibilities:

Connector not seated.

Connector bad on adapter or motherboard.

Charging circuit on motherboard bad.

Adapter bad.

Battery bad.

If the unit runs when adapter is connected, then battery is probably bad. This can occur if you run the battery down too far.

If the unit will not run with the adapter/charger connected then check for the connector problems and other problems.

Hi,
Yes it could be the motherboard but i would go back and check all the connections before you come to the decision that the motherboard is bad.
Check that you have your connections right on the front panel header, also check the connectors to and from the PSU (power supply unit)
Check that the motherboard support the bus speed of the memory (usually its 400MHz)
Try clearing the CMOS too which is a small plastic coloured jumper next to or near the motherboard battery.


Good luck.

Charger not recognized


Folks.
The issue with most of the Dell charger issues rekated to a new charger not being able to charge the battery is the fact that Dell has a screwy proprietary circuit design in their laptops and chargers.
It seems that the Dell laptops are designed so
only Dell chargers will work. While other
brands of chargers will power the laptop when plugged in,
they will not charge the battery.
They do this so they have a monopoly on their chargers and thus can charge a frickin' fortune for their, Dell chargers.
Want them to change this? don't buy Dell products for a while. If enough people ban them, they would change this **** overnight!

Problem with compaq c700, is not charging,


Sounds like you need a new charger. If the charger doesnt fix it then try a new battery. Before you buy either one, check the charge port in the back of the laptop, sometimes they crack off and just need a bit of solder to make a good connection to the motherboard.

SuperMicro H8DCE-Motherboard no video


Are you hooking up The 24 pin ATX J1B1 connector and the 8 pin processor power connector JBW1 ? Alot of guys don't realize that new AMD's get power from a special connector on the motherboard..If you don't have this connector on your power supply you will need to get one that does. Hope it is this easy.
