Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


I am guessing the battery has not charged up, leave the unit over night charging and try again, if it still will not start with just the battery I believe it is dead. Also try starting the unit with the battery out - does this happen, if yes then battery at fault

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Hi, the problem you are having is going to be either the battery is totally dead you should have got some warning about this on your lap top as the battery's have only a certain life span before they need replacing so this is the most likely cause of your problem.

If its not the battery then you need to start thinking about the wires going to the battery may have come loose this is less likely as the lap top wouldnt come on at all even with power lead as the power goes through the battery.

Get the battery looked at and changed this will then solve your problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Many thanks for using fixya.com

Acer aspire 5100 when a laptop does not start with power plug on and no battery what could be the issue


Do you have a voltmeter? The first thing I would check is to see if you are getting 19VDC coming out of the charger. The on then off when you have the battery in sounds like your battery is almost out of juice and the fact that nothing happens when you plug it in without the battery indicates to me that your power adapter is not working.

Laptop without battery turns on at one plug socket but not another plug socket, i'm confused???


Sounds like there must be enough of a difference in the quality of the power at the friend's house that makes a difference to the laptop.

Unfortunately the meters are very expensive:

Dell inspiron 6000 dead when connect power adeptor to laptop the led light on psu goes off is this mother board fault or psu.


If the led on the power supply turns off after connecting it to your laptop, the problem most likely lies with the power supply especially if the machine will run on battery power. This can be tested by

1. Turn the laptop off.

2. Remove the battery and power supply plug.

3. Press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to reset the laptop.

4. Replace the power supply plug into the laptop without replacing the battery.

5. If the computer will not start and there are no lights turning on on the laptop the power supply is bad.

6. Replace the battery and attempt to start the machine both with and without the power supply plugged in.

You need to replace the battery as it has expired.
They are available by typing the battery model number or laptop model number into ebay or Google or indeed any search engine.
Hope that helps.

With power cord plugged in and without power cord plugged in the pc will not turn on


remove the battery, plug-in power cord then power on. your battery may be completely drain and your power adapter can't give enough supply to power up your laptop and charge the battery at same time. if doing so power on your laptop, charge your battery for about 12 hours without turning the power of your laptop

Problem with distrubing power to my HP dv6700 laptop!


You may have more than a dead battery problem, but possibly a problem with the ac adapter or the internal psu. Does this only happen with you try to use the laptop with the battery removed? or does it fail to turn on with or without the battery snapped in?

Laptop won't turn on


The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.
