Most laptops have the ability to operate with just the power cord. Have you tried it? If it won't work, then that's another issue.

Battery went dead, now will not turn on even with jist power cord


Oh, oh. Check the connection. If a light turns on as you wiggle the connection, then the plug needs to be re-soldered. Not an easy task, but take it to a PC shop for an estimate.

My tablet wont charge unless turned on but battery is so low it wont turn on so cant charge it up.heeeeeelllllpppp


You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.

Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.

My Sony laptop is not charging when it is pluged in on to the electric oulet


If the battery is not charging when the power cord is plugged in then the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.

Are you sure your power cord is good and that you are not operating on battery power?

Take the battery out and see if the laptop stays on. Or you can reboot with the battery out and the power cord in. If it fails that means the Power Cord is the issue and you were working off the battery.

If you leave the power cord off and insert the battery, then reboot. If it boots up and stays up that means the battery has some charge in it. If it does not boot up or boots and shuts down, the battery is drained and you will need another one if the power cord is good and it's not charging.

Why is my acer emachine charging blinks in red


That is a signal that your battery is almost dead or drained. If you have the power cord plugged in and the battery is not charging at all, that means the battery is dead and you need to purchase another one.

In windows xp you should be able to click Start/Control Panel/Power Options. When the power options window opens click the Power Meter tab. It will tell you if your battery is charging.

Now to isolate if it's really the battery that's dead or if it's the Power Cord that's bad. You might really be operating on battery power even though you have the power cord plugged in.
1) Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. Turn it back on with only the power cord plugged in. If it comes and and boots up ok, then your power cord is ok.
2) Turn the laptop off and this time put the battery in, but leave the power cord off. Now hit the power button and see if it boots up. If it does that means you might have a little power still left in the battery, but since it was not charging when the power cord was plugged in, the battery is bad because you verified in step one that the power cord is good.

I have the replacement keyboard for the gateway NV54 laptop. I need basic instructions on removing the old keyboard and unstalling the new keyboard. Can anybody help because Gateway can't help so far.


All them are pretty basically the same. Pull out power cord and battery... Remove the bezel piece top of the keyboard "the thing the power button sits in". When you remove it there should be 2 screws very tiny holding the keyboard down remove them. Under the keyboard there will be the power ribbon DO NOT JUST PULL IT OUT!! There will be like a brown/white clip that locks the ribbon to the board. The brown may be black or even blue that is the locking piece. Carefully lift the clip up and gently pull the ribbon out. If its stuck you have not unlocked it. Pull the old keyboard out and repeat the steps backwards.

I own a Gateway NV54 computer that operates Windows 7. Recently my computer will only work when plugged in and my battery is not charging.


Hello,

This is a sign that you need to purchase a new battery. The old one will not hold a charge anymore.

Good Luck

My gateway nv54 laptop battery is ok, I've checked it in lap-top tech service. But the system gives me a message "consider replacing your battery" or something like that. With a full-charged...


Unfortunately there isnt much you can do, the only real solution that has ever been known to work is to completely drain the battery (I mean keep trying to turn it on even after its died, many many times) and then put in on charge for 8hrs.
Other than that, regardless of what people say, there isnt much else you can do. And I wouldnt put too much faith in any tests these techs have run, its almost impossible to really see what state the battery cells are in.
For future reference, when you are using your laptop plugged into the mains, take the battery out, that wil help prolong its life, and never let it get too hot or charge it longer than it needs (can bend the cell walls)

It is dead no power what can i do


Hi,I believe your shaver is a battery powered model..
If this is the case your Rechargeable batteries (built in) could have been dead..and needs to be replaced.But before taking it to a repair shop ,Whether electric or battery operated model please make sure you check the power cord as well,because sometimes one of the lead cracks at the point that it attaches to shaver,which the power cord needs to be replaced.
If you wish you can describe the problem more details than I may suggest something else.
Regards.
