Sounds like you may have an overheating issue with the processor. If it has gone on for some time, there could be damage to the processor and that is accounting for the short turn off time. If the system powers up on the battery alone, does it still shut off?, if you take the battery out and just attach the ac cord, does it shut off just as fast? If the unit has run hot for some time and not shut off there is a good chance it has dried the thermal grease on the processor or it has done irreperable damage to the processor itself and they may have to be replaced. First get some compressed air you would get at an office supply chain and using short bursts of compressed air, spray it in the vents, ducts, pull the cd tray out and blow air through the cd drive, open the bottom of the case and blow air in all the compartments. Blow air across the keyboard, but pay close attention to the heatsink, and it vent grills.

Why isn't my laptop charging?


Remove the battery and let the computer sit for about 5 minutes. Replace battery and plug in AC cord. Try to start computer. If the computer will not turn on, then chances are that your battery is fully uncharged. Check to ensure that the AC charger is working properly (voltage test with multimeter). If the AC charger is not working, you need to replace it. The laptop should work without a charged battery if the AC adapter is functioning properly.

Take out the battery and wait for 2 minutes. Re-insert the battery, try booting. If it doesn't work, then check whether the battery is charged or not.Give it for charging, wait a few moments it wont start charging immediately if fully discharged. Kindly comment if the problem persists.

I have a Compaq Presario R3000 with Windows XP OS. Until recently it had been working fine. Suddenly, the power went off while still connected to the AC Supply and the Laptop just went off. The battery...


1. Remove battery from the laptop. 2. Unplug the power cord from the computer. 3. Let the computer sit for a few min. 4. Leave battery out. 5. Connect power adapter to computer 6. Push power button to turn computer on. 7. If computer powers on shut down again, and put battery back in. 8. Push power button to turn computer back on (at this point battery and power adapter should be connected to the computer)
If computer powers on with power adapter with the battery out. You are having a battery issue. You would want to look into replacing the battery. If computer does not power on with just the power adapter. You are most likely having a power issue. Depending on how old the laptop is. You will either want to contact the manufacturer. Or take the computer to a computer repair shop, or consider replacing the laptop.

My hp pavillion dv6700 will not power up all of the blue lights will flicker as i press the power button for a few seconds then it will power off. ive tried taking the battery out and running it strictly...



Your DC jack may be loose or broken off the system board.


Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it's still under warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Screen went black,but still on...turned it off...now won't start up.


All Dell laptops have a similar design flaw (in my opinion). The socket where the power cord plugs in to the laptop is probably loose. Use a toothpick or something to check it. Don't use anything metalic. If the socket moves easily then it has probably come loose from the motherboard. You may want to take the laptop to a computer repair shop to have the power socket soldered back to the motherboard. If you have the knowledge you can do this yourself but I don't suggest it. Laptops have a LOT of small parts. Hope this helps! Thanks!

It may be the ac connector but a Notebook has the Battery too...
borrow a fully charged Battery that fits your Laptop and with every thing else Removed insert the Full battery in your computer then Turn it on.
If it works u know it is the AC conecter that can be fixed with a Replacement.
otherwise Your Notebook needs to be serviced at a service center.

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.
