Re: My charger won't work so now my computer wont turn on

Unplug you ac adapter from the wall and plug a lamp in to verify that the wall plug is working correctly. Pick up the adapter to see if it feels warm. Most adapters will feel warmer than room temperature if they are working,
If the cords on your adapter can be unplugged from the adapter, reseat them. Try the ac adapter in another wall plug to see if it comes on. The adapter may have an LED on it that indicates whether or not it is on. If it doesn't, about the only way to check it is to use a multimeter to see if there is any voltage on the plug that goes into the back of the laptop. If something else will work in the original wall plug and the adapter won't work in another wall plug, you will need to obtain another ac adapter.
Once you've tried these things, let me know and we'll go from there.

Sounds like you have no power coming to it... Are using battery power. Try to plug the wall charger and see if you get battery to charge try to turn it on while plug into wall charger.. Which make and model is this laptop. Some time it's broken power jack which can cause it not charge or get any power across

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!

If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.

Dell Inspiron 6400 wont recognize new battery

Well often batteries from 3rd party manufacturer do not work in some laptops, see even the batteries have a "Chip" in them identifying them. Also sometimes these batteries are just no-good. or arrive flat, too flat to be charged up via the supplied charger. Anyway hopefully none of that applies and this will work. Now Turn PC OFF, put battery in unit. Now plug in wall unit, then plug into the PC, now leave the PC totally alone for at least 3 hours. Now the unit should work. Now how we tell where the problem lies is like this, Turn OFF, take out battery, now plug in the wall adapter, now the PC should work Fine like this. Now remove wall adapter, and insert the battery, the unit should go on this.. ONLY of course if charged. Now if when plugged in there are problems, it is more than likely, that indeed the battery is faulty, in some way.
These links below detail what steps to take to remedy any situation. The 2nd link is great.

Laptop wont start without battery. its was working with battery and charger plugged in. then just died. a friend of mine has got the same laptop. if i take his fully charged battery the laptop switches on...

Your AC adapter is dead. Look at the adapter after you plug it in the wall, if it is working, there should be a green LED lit on it. If this is the case and it still isn't working, you need to take a volt meter and read if there is output at the connector that plugs into the computer. Either way it looks like your adapter is defective and needs to be replaced.

Dell Inspiron E1505 shorting out adapter

I would replace the battery if you had for some time. Over time charging a battery will slowly not take a charge. If you tried two adapters, about the only thing is left is the battery.
