Father2gabe, Try this! With fully booted KNOWN GOOD pc displaying the win-desktop, reconnect suspect bad monitor to PC. Then and only then turn on the monitorand note what happens on screen. What happens if you point a bright flashlight (torch) at 2-4cm from screen??? Do you see the desktop screen even though the screen remains black?
Also do search on web to find out how lcd monitors get WHITE LIGHT to shine from the rear side to the front side!! Yes, your AC adapter must produce the same DC voltages as the original nonfunctional adapter-brick did!!! I would suspect that the VOLTAGE INVERTER BOARD inside the monitor is not now or will anytime soon, produce 800-1200v ac to light up the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes" (CCFL's) that are hung horizontally across the glass LCD panel. Get back to me with result of flashlight test. louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com

The specs for this monitor is a 60 Watt, 12 Volt, 5 Amp power adapter. The voltage must be the same. You can always get an adapter with a higher Amperage rating, but never get one with less, as this can overheat the adapter and damage it. I was not able to locate specs on whether the voltage to the monitor is DC or AC... most are DC. If this is the case, the observe the polarity at the monitor. Power adapters have a positive and a negative... center and outer contact, Make sure that the power adapter matches that of the monitor, else it will not work.

My hp compaq tc4200 wont turn on.if i plug power cable it shows charging after few seconds it wont charge i removed battery but the problem still


Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test your compaq tc4200 power supply with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

Product does not boot.nothing shows when i try to boot the product.


Make sure that the AC adapter is actually putting out voltage (and the appropriate amount) by connecting the AC adapter to a compatible and known working laptop, or by using a voltage meter. If the AC adapter is good, then make are any lights coming on when you try to turn on the computer? If so, make sure that the computer isn't just sending its video signal out of the port used to connect to an external monitor. Test this by connecting an external monitor or by pressing the fn key and whichever F key represents the toggle to external monitor function. If you are on Windows 7, press the windows key and the p key at the same time. Then, after letting go of both of those keys, use the left-arrow key and then hit enter.If there are no lights at all when you press power, remove the battery, make sure that the AC adapter is plugged in, and then try to turn it on. Sometimes a battery can be so bad that it prevents the AC adapter from properly powering the laptop at all.If none of this works, sounds like you have a hardware failure inside the laptop (could be the video adapter, the power button, or some other motherboard component).

My lap top will not turn on anymore... its plugged into the wall and no power what so ever.


If there is no power or lights etc, then first we must suspect the Wall Power Supply, you are going to have to try a replacement one to see if thats it, or using a meter check for voltage from adapter. Also check in another wall socket. Also take battery out, then try adapter, see if battery was influencing anything.

Dell XPS 1530 wont power on at all..


Troubleshooting is pretty simple.
  1. Try a different Dell 90W or larger D/E-Series AC adapter and see if the system gets power. If no known good AC adapter is available, then check output voltage of AC adapter (Should be about 19VDC or so) If you can't do either, then the AC adapter is still the cheapest item to replace for a no power issue.
  2. If system will not power on with a known good AC adapter or new one, then the motherboard is the likely failure point. Roughly $150 on Ebay

LCD screen does not come on When plugged in, the battery light starts to blink yellow. The computer turns on,. I hear it doing something, but the screen never lights up.


Thats a no power issue : Remove battery and AC Adapter for 1 minute. Power on system with just the AC Adapter and then try just the battery. If its determined the AC Adapter and/or battery is not the issue.I
f the external monitor shows video the driver/video card is likely not the problem. The system will likely need to be repaired for a possible LCD/LCD Cable issue

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad

IBM T30 - power issues


You might try cleaning the battery compartment. Makeing sure there are no damaged pins. Often times even a single messed up pin will cause this. Also this is a very good indication of adaptor failure. If you haven't allready I suggest getting another ac adapter specific to you machine. Even a substitute will casue the same issue you are now experianceing.
