Micron Trek 2 laptop won't start on battery or AC (NBKU375)

I have an old Micron Trek 2 laptop. I haven't used it in a while, so I took it out of storage and plugged it in for a few days to charge the batteries. I cannot get it to turn on. The icons lit up on display are the ac plug icon and batteries A and B (all solid green). The other icon which is lit up is the lightning bolt which is solid amber. Can anyone tell me what this icon means and why I can no longer start this machine up? The machine always worked fine previously.

    Thanks for your quick response. I have tried starting the machine on AC with and without the battery pack, but to no avail. Regardless of whether the battery is installed or not, the lit icons on the console remain the same. So thought there's power getting to the machine, I cannot start it up.

The lightning bolt is used to indicate an electrical problem but then, you know that already :-( Try removing the battery pack and start it from AC only; some battery types don't like to be ignored, they can have individual shorted cells.

No power


Hello, If the battery won't charge and the laptop won't turn on but the ac adapter works with other laptops, then the problem is the port where you plugin the ac adapter. Some of the laptops has it built in to the motherboard. So you might need to have it repaired by a technician. Or if the laptop is still in warranty, you might need to send it to the manufacturer to have it repaired or replaced. But if the laptop works without the battery, or it will turn on but the battery indicator is not lighting up, you're facing one of these problems. 1. The battery itself is dead. 2. the battery bay is loose 3. the battery itself is loose Hope this helps

I have a HP laptop that won't power up. I put in a new battery, and bought a new AC adapter. Now lights nothing. It was running than just quick and I haven't been able to get it to come back o


Hi There,
If you've got a multimeter - test your AC adapter to see if it is outputting the correct voltage for your laptop. If it is, Then you've got an HP boat anchor. Unfortunately HP laptops are known for their overheating issues, and if this is the case, a lawsuit filed against said manufacturer means you may be able to be compensated for your loss.

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
