Ac power light does not come on

When I plug in the AC adaptor and power cable, the AC power light does not come on & the laptop may not be turned on at all. I tested the adaptor using a digital multimeter; the adaptor appears to be working properly, showing 15,3 V (but it does not seem to become warm as it usually does when the laptop is operational). What else can I do? I don't have a working battery. Thanks to anyone who can help!!!

    Hi, thanks so much for your advice. Right now, when I plug in the AC adaptor, the green LED ac power light goes on. But when I press the "power" button on my laptop, the computer does not boot, and the LED light switches to yellow & then starts blinking. Is there anything else I could try? Thanks again.

If you want to be daring, take the CPU Chip, the largest one on the board out, and reseat it. this has to be done carefully, as to not break any of the pins. When you put the chip back in, pull the little lever up that the mount holds down, this will allow the chip to slide into the holder once it is in, gently push the lever back down, put be mindful of the amount of force that you use, then reattach everything, and keep your fingers crossed

Hi,
Probly the ac connector has came loose from the motherboard. It's quite common on these models.
It can be re-soldered (possibly) and requires the board taken out completely.
Good luck

I have a HP dv7 laptop it does not work with the ac adapter but worked with the battery, whenever it is working with the battery and the ac adapter is connected it shuts down.


Remove the battery and plug the ac adaptor in check wethere the light on the port where you connect the ac adaptor glows or not, if no then check the wethere the ac adaptor is getting warm or not after you plug it in for few minutes if not then ac adaptor has to be replaced.
If the light on the port is glowing then it is likely that the power supply of the notebook has gone bad as it is not able to switch to ac adaptor or the port where you connect the ac adaptor to the notebook has a short circut when the acadaptor pin is connected , better try with a different ac adaptor to be sure wethere the issue is with ac adaptor or the notebook.
My best wishes

Laptop won't staart up.


Hi,
Yes, it should run off AC power even if the battery is removed. Sounds like either the motherboard or your AC adaptor might be failing. I would start by trying the AC adaptor with another dell to verify it it's not dead.

Good luck,

The Power cable might have gone bad but if changing the power cable doesnot resolve the problem then surely motherboard has gone bad.

Does not start; no power indicator light


Take out the battery and then try the different ac adaptors. If you still get no lights on the laptop then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced. Just make sure that you know at least one of your ac adaptors are good.

If the adaptors have lights and they turn on then you know the ac adaptor your working with is good. Also make sure they are plugged into a good working outlet.

I have a Dell D600 (PP05L), its not powering up no lights. I noticed on the power adapter the green light goes out when plugged into ac power. What could be wrong here? please help


Hook up your power adaptor to ac power without it being hooked up to the laptop and see if the green light stays on. If it does then you know your adaptor is okay. if your adaptor is only hooked up to ac power and the green light still turns off then you know your ac adaptor is bad.

Take out the battery from your laptop. Now hook up the ac adaptor to the laptop and if it stays green then you know your battery is bad but you also want to make sure you can get your laptop to turn on. Hopefully it will turn on with only the ac adaptor hooked up to it.

Laptop will not turn on.


plug it into the wall , most newer laptops will have a power boost while plugged into AC.
check your power cable receptical on the back of the laptop, these are notorious for getting loose.
check the cable on the ac adaptor, these are bad for getting breaks that you cant see in them (run your hand down the cable physically and fell for any breaks while unplugged, then do it again plugged in and watch for lights to flicker on the computer.
look for the power light on the laptop to come on when you plug the adaptor in. if you get a light on the adaptor and on the computer, then the adaptor isnt the issue.
the next step is checking the power button and power supply.. post what your results are here and we'll move to the next step if not resolved.
Regards!

Laptop not showing light, power button not turning on, AC adaptor light constantly beeping faintly


Unplug the power cable... Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds... Plug cable back in and check for light... If this still didnt work, then unplug cable again, take battery out, wait 10 seconds.... Put battery back in, plug cable back in and this should allow you to boot...

sounds like you have an intermittent problem with your AC adaptor or dc input jack. Does the light on the AC adaptor light up when you plug it in? If it does then your dc input jack may be faulty. If the light on the ac adaptor does not light then replace the ac adaptor. Good Luck!
