It will not power on

When I plug it into the computer or charger it will not power on.  It just gets very warm.  I have removed the battery and reinserted it to see if that helps.  I don't want to go to the expense of buying a new battery if that is not the problem.  Can anybody help??

Try holding the power button for 20 secs. if that doesn't work maybe try holding the power button and play button for 20 secs. if that doesn't work return it to the store for another one.

I have a Dell E6400. I know, ancient! Is it normal that it gets slower when charging? Like when it's using battery power, it's noticeably faster, but when I plug the charger in it just gets slower..

1.Install the system again. If it works, over!
2.remove the battery, and turn on your notebook with charger. If it works, there may be
something wrong with your battery. You can change a new battery.
3.Install the battery,and plug the charger, power your notebook. Open the Power
management, change the Power plan to High performance.

My NV52 lap top computer shut down on me the other night and now i can't get it to power on. The charger works fine but when i plug it into the computer the light for the charger turns off.

remove the battery and try to power on the computer using just the charger. if you can try to use a different charger. if the charger light still goes off when plugging it in your computer then it might mean that there is a short in your motherboard. you can try removing the peripherals (i.e. memory, harddrive, DVD or CD drive, wireless card, battery or modem) to check if it is one of the peripherals causing the short. if you have removed all the peripherals and the system still doesnt turn on or if the power light on the charger still turns off and you have tried the charger on a different computer then it would mean the motherboard is damaged.

1. Unplug your computer and remove the battery.
2. Press the power button several times.
3. Reattach the battery, plug in the computer, and press the power button.
4. If the problem persists, look closely at the screen. If you can make out faint, dim images, the backlighting components must be replaced or repaired. If not, it is likely another issue with the physical hardware of the machine such as the screen or the motherboard.

Have Toshiba Equium L300, has just stopped working, no power getting to laptop. can anyone advise if this is abttery or power cable? cheers

Remove the battery and plug in the charger(Power Cord).
Try turning on the computer.
If it starts, its an issue with the battery.
Battery may not have charge or the computer is not charging the battery.
Try replacing the battery before checking the computer.
If not, it can be either the computer or the charger.
But try checking it with a different charger before taking the computer for repair.

My charger will not charge the computer, and when it is plugged in it is getting really it my charger or battery??

Toshiba laptops run really hot, normally. It is one thing that I dislike about them. I never investigated, but presumed it was processor, as the heat was being removed by the fan.

Power cord is working, but computer will not come on and battery does not charge. this is on Dell Inspiron 1545 just over 1 year old.

You can simply remove the battery and connect the Power cord. Switch ON the laptop it should be working now.
Try after some time to connect the battery, If still its not working then you need to purchase a new battery.

Battery charger shuts off when you put in a battery to be charged,reset wont work,unit is getting warm-a Short ?

I have this problem with my black and decker when I tested the leads in the charger they have power, I tried 3 different batteries. I took the charger apart and plugged in the battery, this is when I noticed the 10v + power that I was getting when testing just the charger turned off when the battery was installed, so instead of reading 10v from the charger I was only reading 4v of the dying battery. I removed some covering only to find the resistor burnt black, and the led light with black in it. I am guessing that I could replace the resistor and light if I could tell what kind they were.

sounds like the power jack at back of computer has gone bad, check voltage of battery and see if it has good power if not then it is dead and not getting charged through port the jack at rear generally requires MB replacement and is very expensive and cheaper to get new laptop, u can remove HD from old lap top and copy data over. another choice is to get stand alone charger for laptop battery and use battery mode,

if battery tested good them there is slight chance power switch is bad
