    Hi Charlie,

    Thank you for your quick reply,

    The problem is I do not know how to check to see if it is a problem with the battery or if it is with the power cord. Although I am going off of the assumption that it is the AC cord because when the low battery light started to flash on my lap top, I tried plugging in the power cord, but there were no results.

It one of two things wrong here,

1) have your replace the battery yet?

2) Does your AC cord work properly?

Check that and let me know.

    Ok, the best way is take your laptop to your local repair shop let them plug in with their AC charger if it charged, that mean your adaptor is bad nor if it doesn't your battery is bad.

Remove the battery and plug in the Cord/charger, will it boot? If no, try another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs. Replace battery if necessary.

A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

Shut Down


Is the ac adapter plug into the power outlet with the battery in or are you just using your battery to boot up ? Try to just use the ac adapter without the battery to see if it still shuts down.

Your battery may not be charging enough but to be sure charge it fully by making sure the AC Adapter are securely snug to the power jack of the laptop and to the power outlet and not turning your computer for at least half a day. Check to see battery contacts are clean. Check to see if charging led blinks. Also make sure battery latch locks tight when putting it in.
