Does the computer operate with the AC adapter plugged in? Is the connection to your computer (dc jack) loose. Try wigging the power cord in the jack - if you have alot of play you could have a bad dc jack. If the ac adapter is running okay then I would agree with durtopian that you have a bad battery. Laptop batteries last around 11/2 to 2 years.

Sounds like a bad battery or the charger isn't putting out enough power even though the light is on.But most likely its the battery.

My dell laptop isn't charging when plugged in. What should i do?


Dell chargers have a centre pin to allow the laptop to sense that the charger is a genuine Dell one. If the battery is not charging then:

a) Battery is faulty (old and dead)
b) Pin missing on the charger, wire broken or not original Dell device
c) Charging port on the laptop has become loose.

Hope this helps.

My eee pc 1005hab laptop won't charge. I have it connected to the charger and nothing I don't know what to do. Please help


When this happends, the three usual suspects are the charger, the charging port (where the charger plugs into the laptop), or the motherboard itself.
Now to see where the problem lies. These would be my first steps...

1> Is there a light on the charger, if so, does it light up? If it does have a light, and it lights up then we can leave the charger out of the equation. If it has a light and it does not light up, we can assume the charger is the culprit. If it does not have a light, you will need a voltage tester.
2> Is where you plug the charger into the laptop loose? Sometimes, the charging port on the laptop can become loose (separation or partial separation (also known as a short) from the motherboard and loose the connection to the laptop. This keeps the energy from reaching both the laptop and the battery to create a charge.
God luck!

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

Dell inspiron M5030 won't charge, green light is


This is a common problem. It may be that the charger is dammaged. these Dell chargers have a micro thin communication cable in them that tell the charger to charge the battery. this micro thin cable can often break. Its use it to prevent the laptop battery from over charging, but if it breaks or becomed broken inside tha charger cable, then the laptop simply won't get the charge signal and the battery won't charge. If this is the case, then you will need to replace the charger with another Dell charger compatible with your laptop

My Pavilion g6-1b79dx notebook will not charge even with a new battery and charger. The light indicating the charger is plugged in is blinking white


When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?

1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:

1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.

2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

Hi, i have asus eee pc net book, what was the issue is...... when ever i try to charge my netbook when netbook is truned on, the adopter light is blinking. when the netbook is truned off its chargeing...


When the adopter light is blinking. when the net-book is turned off means that is charging, but if the light remains for a lobg period of time there is something wrong with the battery or the charger.

Here is small tool Imtec Battery Mark designed to test the battery laptop life. You can run laptop battery test in two modes (fast and normal) and Imtec Battery Mark will provide full assessment of your Laptop battery at the end of test.

The dead battery charger means the charger can not work : can not charge the laptop battery or can not run the laptop. When our laptop battery can not charge, we must check the battery and charger state. Now let me list the steps of test our battery and charger below.

Make sure the powerbook g4 battery charger cable is plugged in and the output is to power.

Look closely at the battery. Is there corrosion or leakage? If so, replace the inspiron 6400 battery immediately.

Test the charger. For DC chargers, a voltmeter set at 25 VDC and touch the contacts with the probes. The meter should read about more than 1 V Evaluation of the shipper. If the reading is zero, change battery catheters.

Testing a AC charger through the establishment of a voltmeter to 25 VAC. Tap the contact probes. The transformer in the charger is bad if you get no reading.

Check contacts. These are strips of metal or points in the appliance and charging cradle. With the batetry charger unplugged, clean with a cotton swab. Use a fine emery board to remove visible corrosion.

Sounds like your battery is shot, bad or discharged or shorted batteries will shut the charging circuit off.

The laptop wont charge


Just because the light comes on does not mean the charger is charging. You will have to use a meter and check the actual output of the charger. The problem could be the charger , charger plug, cables or battery. Start the checks with the plugs and cables and go from there. The light can come on but no power going out to the battery.
