Packard Bell Easynote L4 Intermittent Power Problem

I have a laptop as above...intermittently it won't power up. When it does power up it works fine and normal and doesn't cut-out, however after powering down...sometimes (and it's getting more frequent) it won't power up at all....there's no sign of life at all i.e. if the power supply is plugged in, it doesn't indicate that it's charging and it won't power from the battery. When it does start it can work on the battery for a normal amount of time, suggesting that the battery is OK. Do you know if the input dc socket is prone to being a problem....could it be something more sinister???
Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Jack....but as I said above, even when the PC power supply is not plugged in and the battery is charged, it still doesn't switch sign of must be an internal thing.

    I have same problem; I was told that it could be internal small battery which powers CMOS!?
    If so where to find that battery in the laptop; I opened some gates at the back and saw no button type battery

    Sounds similar but now my easynote won't power up at all. With the adapter plugged in or not. Tried it with battery out and plugged into the adapter....nothing. Adapter gets warm though, so its getting power.

Packard bell easy note tj65 will not power up

the short cable running from the power button to the main board has probably snapped where it passes over the RH hinge. remove the screen surround to gain access to the power on switch area and check. it would seem to be a common fault with the packard bell

How do I know if my packard bell easynote R4250 is dead?

If the laptop is more than two years old. Time to replace the battery. The power meter is not a reliable way of seeing a bad battery. If just one of the cells in the battery is bad it will not run your laptop , and the meter still would show 100%

HI, Packard Bell Easynote L4, switches off after 5 seconds

no..this is a motherboard issue. if the power won't stay on, even without a battery, then it's the m/b..replacement is a bit dicey, but not impossible. The hard drive with data should be fine.

Have dropped my laptop and the sound is intermittently slow and heavily distorted

You'll need to replace the motherboard, the computer does not have a separate sound card. Very expensive to fix unless you can do the work yourself.
