This normally means your battery has failed. Have you tried booting the laptop with the battery removed? It should boot fine without the battery and if so you will need to contact Dell about getting a replacement battery.

My Dell Inspiron 537s stopped working and won't turn on. There is a green light in the back when I plug it in, but the power button in the front does nothing. I am assuming it is the power supply, but...


The only way to determine if the power supply is no good without replacing it is to get a Volt Meter and test the Output on the current Power Supply. If you are getting the correct Output Voltage (correct Output Voltage may vary from computer to computer) then it is not the power supply, but if you are getting a 0V then your power supply might be damaged or blown a fuse, or just simply dead.

You can try to see if you can buy a power supply with a return policy just to see if that fixes the issue.

Please rate if this helps

My charger won't charge. Computer detects plugged in but no charge


This is usually caused by an old or defective battery or possibly the power supply is a few volts too low to activate the charge indicator. It might be charging but not letting you know.
Try to run it off battery for a while (look at the battery life) and then plug it back to for a while then unplug it again to see if the battery life if higher than before.
To check the power supply you will need a volt meter that can read at least 20 vdc (most power supplies are 19 vdc). Put one lead of the meter on the inside of the plug that goes into the computer and the other pin on the outer silver part while the power supply is plugged into the wall outlet. You should read close to what the Output Voltage on the power supply says which should be on the sticker on the back or side of the black box part of the power supply.

Acer 5100 charge light is blinking while plugged in


well either you have a bad battery, or a bad charger, or your ACPI settings are not correct in BIOS, you must check each one, First you must check the Power Adapter, usually with a multimeter set to Volts DC and see if it the same as what is written on power supply, Next check the batteries voltage with a meter and see if that is OK, really the only real way is to substitute the battery, and expensive guess? Also as said check your ACPI settings are OK in BIOS and Windows power settings too. Use your manual for reference.

Battery wont charge and will not power without battery


It sounds like you have a bad power supply (power cord). If you already know someone that can charge your battery, check if their power supply will fit. It probably will. Make sure the plugs (into the laptop) are the same, and make sure the output voltage is the same on both power supplies.

Computer will not turn on. power supply is ok. when on botton is pushed for the first time battery led flashes 10 times and stops. fan does not go on. 2nd time the power button is pressed, the battery led...


Hmmmm, I'm thinking DUST has clogged your fan and the CPU is overheating and shutting down your computer. Find a way to blow some air through the vents in the case. This may loosen up any dust and if your lucky it'll blow out. Only other thing I can think of is to open the case and take a look.... if you are confident enough. If not don't.

42FD9954 philips plasma TV flashing LED it wont come on


The problem is in the standby power supply. the standby power supply generates the 9 volts and the 5 volts requird by the tv. If you measure the 9 volts source, with only the red light on, the correct voltage is 9 volts. However if the 9 volt measures 6.5 to 7 volts it is too low and the startup relays cannot operate. My set is a model 42FR9954/17S. In this set if capicator, 2603, is heated the voltage climbs to 9 volts and the relays work. If cold air is applied to the capicator the relays fail to operate. Replace capacitor 2503 and the problen is fixed. This capicator is: 47 Ufd, rated @ 450 volts, and is 20%.

Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. Anything higher or low than one volt means the supply is faulty and will need replaced. This could also be a battery issue, if a fail safe in the battery has engaged. Try removing the battery and see if it works properly on the supply only, if so, then the battery will need replaced. Also, remove the memory, and try each chip one at a time in each slot. A faulty memory chip pr slot can have this effect. If these three check good, then I'm afraid the problem is with the power management system on the motherboard, and unfortunately the motherboard will have to be replaced. Since the light is flashing, this indicates a code. You can find a light and sound codes list for your machine at Dell's support site. This may help in identifying the exact problem area.

make sure the power adaptor is connected, powered on and your computer has lights confirming that you are getting external power. Make sure your battery is plugged in. Try powering the computer on. Look for any signs/noises from the computer. Try holding the power button down for about 10-20 seconds. Often this can reset the computer. Sometimes you may need to let the laptop charge its battery for a while before it will turn on, Good luck - if this doesn't work, report back with more information - ie any noises, fans, beeps, flashing of the screen that occurs.
