    This is normally an indication of a fault with the laptop which is causing the power supply unit to overload when connected. Any strange things happen before this started to occur?

This indicates a short in the computer or power supply. The power supply senses the problem and shuts itself off. Does the laptop run at all? More info. is needed to correctly solve your problem. Send me a message and I will help you out. Phil

This might be caused power failure either motherboard or the ac adapter. Simple things to isolate, if you have a friend that has the same ac adapter voltage/wattage give it a try to his/her laptop check if the ac adapter power led turns off. if yes then ac adapter faulty needs to be replaced. but when ac adapter green light stays on from your friends laptop then you laptop motherboard needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: dell d610 wont turn on ac adapter light is green

There is a small IC that Dell solders into their power supply as well as their batteries. When this parts fails you will have the type of problem you are having now. If you do a search on the web you will find a large number o sites that discuss this. Unfortunately there is no fix other than replacing your power supply. I had to do the same thing myself for the Dell laptop I use.

Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test the AC adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

Why wont my Gateway NV53A36u turn on ?


if your charger is ok then it will be a problem with the dc jack (where your charger plugs in to) or your actual motherboard.

Old battery not charging plug in charger green light goes out


If the system will not power on, and the LED on the AC adapter goes out when plugged into the system, then the most likely senario is the motherboard has failed. Remove the battery, Wireless card, Drives, RAM and connect the AC adapter see if anything changes. If no change, the MB is most likely bad.

My lap topwill not turn on.


Try to check if your AC adapter has a light itself. If it the light is off. Then try a known good adapter. If the AC light is green, then try to wiggle the cord from the port and see if it ain't loose. Try to also check if the AC pin is not bent or broken.

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.

Ds lite ac wall charger


When you first get the DS it will have a bit if charge on it but only a few hours worth. When the DS charges it usally comes up with a orange/red ish light then that goes out about a few hours later when its charged. ad if you want to chek if it is charging correcly turn the DS on whilst it is charging and the little battery simble in the top right corner should show the battery carging.
