Re: No power to notebook

It is possible there is a problem with the power pack. Unplug it from the mains, wait for 5 minutes and then try again.

Also try taking the battery out and the power cable and then pressing the power button, as this resets the power management unit in some laptops.

Also with the battery still out, try running just off the mains power.

Failing all of that, take it back under warranty.

Hi. My Compaq v2000 went into hibernation mode because the battery power got low, now I can't power it up using the a-c cord. I can see that power is getting to the notebook because one of the indicator...

If the power has been removed whilst in hibernation mode you may have lost your data that was not saved.Plug the power lead in and try rebooting in the normal way when you are in close down properly and refit the battery.

My Dell CPi D266XT will not power up. The light on the power cord is flashing green. When I push the power button nothing happens. None of the lights flicker like it's even trying to come on.


It is possible that the other end of your power adaptor is defective or just loose. Tighten it securely and try to test if it is emitting voltages by using a multi-tester.

It can also be that there is a problem with the connection form your power adaptor going to the main board of your laptop.

This is a very technical problem so I suggest you let a laptop technician look at it.

Hope it helps.

I pluged in the power supply and nothing is happening. The small yellow batery icon came on near the screen and nothing else is happening


Remove the mains power lead and then take out the battery. Hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds to dispel any residual power.

Plug in just the mains lead (AC adapter) and see if the machine will boot on mains power only. If it does let it boot up and then shut it down again. Remove AC and reinsert the battery, plug in AC power again and see if it will boot with the battery in.

If it boots up the problem is sorted, if not then there is a problem with battery so you would have to use it on AC only until you find a replacement battery.

Please post back if need anymore help.

Good luck and regards.

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on

remove the battery and see it the power comes on, if so bad battery, check the connector where the power plugs into the laptop, sometime this breaks or has a cold solder joint, you can test this by wiggling and looking to see if the power lights up. last and worst case is a bad main board.
