This is what I would do before chalking this thing up as a hard ware failure try connecting thie to another adpator if that then does not work you indeed got a HW failure with the laptop and the motherboard would likely need to be replaced, Get it evaluated by a technition the geek squad at any best buy wull be able to test this real quick for you do not loose a good laptop over a faulty adaptor trust me this is where the issue could result.

thanks and please do leave postive feedback, ratings for your free naswer today.

A couple of things can be the cause. You could have an issue with your battery connection, or your ignition switch is dead. Ignition switch issues tend to kill all the power to the car. They can go without warning. It's located on the driver's side on the steering column.

Dead thinkpad by ibm


Hello,
The CMOS battery supplies energy to the Real Time Clock when the computer is not connected to the electrical socket, and does not have the battery inserted. It should not prevent the computer from starting up. You will however be asked to reset the time and date of the computer.
Hope it helps.

Toshiba satilite P100...wont turn of


Try these:

1. Can you plug something else besides your laptop into the outlet...verify you have power?

2. Is there a light on your AC adapter...when you plug it in?

3. Try removing your battery and plugging it in, and verify that your AC adapter is working (somehow, if it has no indicator light)

4. Then unplug it, put the battery back in and see if it will start.

Let us know what happens after you try these.

1997 gmc jimmy wont start in cold


there are a few possible things. easiest to hardest, check your spark plugs for wear and gap. if its not the plugs it could be water in fuel system freezing. in colder enviorments it is always best to get highest octane fuel available because it contains less water. try adding an octane booster or fuel stabalizer when fueling up. also fuel filter may be at the end of its lifespan, it would take more cranking to suck the fuel through it if it is clogged.
