My laptop's power port for the AC adapter is not working. The laptop does not recognize the adapter is plugged in. My friend used my AC adapter with no issues. I tried using the dock station as well but the issue persists. Has anybody experience an problem like this?

If the docking station charging doesn't work either and your battery is ok you have lost voltage regulator (it prevents overcharging of battery) Take the battery to a battery plus store and they can check it..

I am unable to connect to a wireless network on my ibm thinkpad T60 pc

First is there a security code to connect to your wireless access point? This is YOUR home wireless? Is your wireless adapter enabled, and working properly on the laptop? Reboot the wireless access point by removing th AC plug and wait 30 seconds,plug in, wait for the device to self-test. Cold-start your laptop, unplug. remove battery, plug in, reboot. If that fails go to IBM/ Lonovo website and update driver for wireless adapter.And all other deivers as needed.

I am not able to open my laptop lenovo G460

Hi kabi_a11,

If you're unable to turn on your laptop there's a big chance that you're having power issue. Consider checking your Battery, AC adapter and DC In port.

1. Basic troubleshooting for battery is by reseating it. Kindly make sure to put it back properly.

2. For the AC Adapter, check the light indicator for it. If it's not defective you'll see the blue light on the brick. You may also try using other AC adapter with same power supply. And if other AC adapter works with your PC then it's the AC adapter that goes with your PC needs to be replaced.

3. One of the possible cause for your computer not to turn on is because the DC In port for the machine is loosed. No power will flow from your AC adapter to your PC.

If after checking and still computer won't turn on I will now recommend you to contact the manufacturer. Lenovo offers repair if machine is under warranty.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Acer Aspire 7741Z - 4643 that is only 2 month old. It is plugged in, and recognizes that it is plugged in, but does NOT charge the battery. Please let me know what to do. Thanks, Not charging


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.

1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

My Lenovo s10 power adaptor (Input 1.7A, Output 20V 2A) was working just now together with the battery. After i didn't used the laptop for an hour and returned to switch it on, the power adaptor isn't...


You said laptop is working fine if just using the battery,that means that there is nothing wrong with the battery itself. Can yu please try to connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the mean time,remove the battery and connect the AC adapter directly to the power outlet then power on the laptop,if nothing happens,that means that there is something wrong with the AC adapter itself or the power port on the laptop.
Hope this will help...

After changing the battery the screen goes nearly blank "ot of the blue" and need tp restat

Hi. I would suggest that you powerdrain your computer and try to turn it on again after powerdraining your laptop. To powerdrain your laptop you must remove the battery and unplug the ac adapter from your laptop and press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then place back the battery and plugin the ac adapter and try to turn on your computer. If this doesnt fix the issue, you might consider reformatting your laptop or restore it using the recovery cd. Hope this helps

Won't power up

Need to check your AC Adapter to make sure it's supplying power to the laptop... Remove the battery And Attempt to power on Using only the charger cord.. Still no power? Check The DC Jack (port where your AC Adapter plugs into)...
Do you get any lights that turn on when plugged in? Does the Fan Spin?

Will not work on battery power, have tried two other working batteries still no luck

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.

IBM T60 will not start up.

could be the ac adapter, battery dead, first check them. if you find nothing there then it could be internal problems. if you know someone who has a charged battery try using it in yours. also try removing the battery and only using the ac adapter only.
