Re: Power to Computer

Well, it could be several things. You say it lights up, does the fan blower run? No video could mean a bad video card. They are on the motherboard these days, but plugging in another one will give you video if the video card has died. The best way to fix computers is to have two of the same model or almost the same side by side and swap out parts, but this either has to be power supply, video card, or motherboard. If MB, time to look for swapping a MB or just buy a new machine.

Have an Acer M5-538P-5859 Lap top, that is 1 mo old. It is a Windows 8. It was left on with only battery power, for a number of days. I plugged in the charger and nothing happens--No lights on, no p

If you let the battery charge for about ten hours it might work. If you just want to see if the computer will work remove the battery and try with the charger plugged in. If you don't need to carry the computer around a battery is not needed. Some batteries will not recharge if they have been discharged too much. If you are going to use it with a battery I suggest that you set your power setting to turn the computer off after a period of unuse and this problem won't happen again. Check Ebay for a battery replacement.

Toshiba L750D Laptop won't turn on, no power light nothing,

Could be a faulty power supply. Try getting a universal replacement and see if that works. Take the laptop to a computer store and see if they have one for you to try before you buy.

Dell Latitude 6500- the power button lights up when plugged in and keyboard will light up but nothing else happens. The machine has a weak battery so I operate it without the battery plugged in.

First of all, you need the battery for a lot of the computer functions to operate. The wrong time and date can really cause problems for your computer. Replace the battery. Have your motherboard checked. Also, run setup when your computer starts to boot to make sure your system settings are correct.

There is no power from the battery or the adapter and the laptop does not recognise the adapter is plugged in. there are no lights coming on and the power button is doing nothing

Your battery maybe out of charge. Thats why nothing happens when you press the power button. The battery may not be charging because the power cord might not be working. Try another power cord.

Try removing the battery and plugging the power cord and switching on the computer. If its the problem with the power cord the computer wont start. If it starts, the power cord is working fine.

Nothing comes up on the screen when i turn the computer on, the power light is on but nothing shows up on the screen

Try pressing Fn + F2 key after turning the computer on. Try to perform power drain. Taka out the battery and unplug the adapter. Presss and hold the power button for 30secs. Put the battery back in and plug in your power adapter then turn on the computer.

Let me know if you will still be getting the same issue.

My mx6128 is dead

Check and see if your power brick's light is on. The power brick is that black block of plastic on your power cord. If that light is dead then the power brick is bad. That should be your first item to check.
