Your power supply wattage is below the requirement. you did not specify what is the wattage of your power supply. if that is 300watts you can increase defending on your load. if this will help you then i'm hoping a positive response

Power shuts down

Try another power outlet. Try a different Micro USB. Remove the battery and place it on a table, give it a spin and if it continues to spin, you may need a new battery. Just eliminate all other possibilities before you go out and make a purchase on a new battery. E-bay is always a big help!

When istart my computer it starts to boot then stops then continues to repeat this cuycle over and over

One bad lead will cause your computer to shut down or continue in a cycle
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to your hard drive

Was working on my laptop and it shut down now it wont start up green light comes on for about 5 sec and goes off again

I guess the problem is with your hard disk. The hard disk might have got corrupted because of some bad sectors or some virus. Try going for a XP reinstallation. That will almost fix your problem. If the problem still persists, Then am really sorry to say, you should go for a product replacement which is not advisable you may happen to lose the data in your old hard disk. The service center ppl will not care abt your data and they wont take backup for you as well. So try to go for XP reinstallation.

Dell inspiron 3800 has power issues. I tried 2 separate ac adapters, took out battery and tried. the light comes on on the ac adapter and as soon as you plug into the back of the laptop, the ac adapter...

you have a shortcut circuit in your laptop. most probably power diodes that is in entering conector of adapter in your laptop have gone or some of rezistances located there. you have to service laptop.

No boot at all

could be a variety of hardware issues ... if you have a modem card remove it first ... leave the battery out as it is not required to operate the laptop as long as you have ac power ... leave all the ram chips out as most laptops have some ram built in ... remove the harddrive and any other internal drives ... also disconnect anything external ... network printers etc... after that yopu are into removing the keyboard and disconnecting the video ...but it gets a bit complicated if you have never worked on laptops before...

Laptop will not power up!

If you have replaced the motherboard I would say it is most likely the CPU. If you had not replaced the m/board I would think it was one of the power chips on the board that sends power to the cpu. If the heat sink compound had turned to dust on the top of the cpu that is certainly not going to help with cooling the cpu down. $500 sounds awful pricey for a CPU. What type and speed is it? May be able to dig one up for you in the basement that will work. At least for testing purposes. Post your type and speed of cpu that will work in your laptop.

No power

This might work. Unplug the power cord connected to the back of the PC. Press & hold the start button on the PC case for ten seconds. Reconnect the power cord & try starting the PC. Still no power. Connect the power cord from the PC directly to a wall jack. (No power strips). Still no power? Possible the power supply went bad.

Hi with the USB port they often wear and can be tightend by gently prizing up the flat contact strips inside the socket, this requires a fine needle and a steady hand. If this fails just install a PCIMA USB card. the fan could be faulty, if you can use a multimeter then test the contacts and see if you have power to it. Regards mistyman
