Have you tried with just the power cord in and the battery out? A faulty battery may cause this. You could test the power with a vault meter. If it's outputting correctly then the laptop is probably at fault and you're looking at a fairly costly repair job.

On my Cyber Power 525SL the power light goes on and off for each plug in. The power on light only stays lit for a few seconds. I didn't want to dispose of unit if there's a way to get it fixed.


The power light was going on and off. Ordered a new battery and replaced the old battery. Now a new problem started. When the unit was turned on with the new battery it would shut down immediately. Would not even cycle on and off any more. Thought it was the new battery. Tested the voltage on the new battery and it around 14 volts. I put the old battery back in and it no longer pulsed on and off any more. Further investigation it was noticed that a little white plug that plugs into the circuit board had come loose when replacing the battery. This little plug is located right by the negative terminal on the battery. It is in a very tight spot and if you push the battery into place this plug will become loose. Reseated this little plug and that solved the two problems. First replacing the defective battery and then reseating that loose plug.

Power adapter isn't charging the battery when plugged in. Comp also won't stay on since the battery isn't charged and the power adapter isn't being recognized, even though it's plugged in. What do I do?


You need a new power cord. Walmart has a Universal one for about $78. This also happened to my laptop last week and I had to get a new one because it was shorting out. Even had sparks...

Packard Bell Laptop goes flat even when plugged into the mains su


Are you sure that the power adaptor is working? Does it have any light on the adapter box that informs about it's operation?
What usually happens is that the cable going from the adapter to the laptop gets crackled from repetitive bending, either at the plug, or at the box inlet. Inspect if the cable is intact, and if possible, checks if there's a required DC voltage on the plug.
Perhaps you might need a new adapter for your laptop.

My power socket in my computer doesent work i have bought new chargers and still can get it to come on


if you just plugged in a new charger you should be able to power it on even if your battery is dead. laptops can be powered on even without its batteries as long as the chargers are connected to the laptop. i think you have to bring your laptop for servicing.

I keep getting "Battery Exhausted" messages, with new batteries


you have to use only very good quality batteries ...I have a philips..and if I do not put alcaline quality bateries in it ..it do not even power up ....and even with this expensive ones it eats 'em like snacks...
by the way ...keep the batteries inside only when you shoot cause all this new cameras with display and so ...consumes the batteries even when they are powered off ..
my advise is to buy some accumulators the kind you charge on the home power plug.....so in this way .. you will always have strong power into them ..and the cost its worthily ..

Powering off


Actually, if it is beeping as though the battery is low even while it is plugged in, it is because the battery is no longer any good and is sucking all the power from the wall. You need to purchase a new battery. Until you get a new battery, you can simply remove the battery and use the laptop plugged in. That will stop it from turning off. Been there - done that. Hope that helps! ; )

Dead batteries when fully charged


Does it work with "no batteries" - only plugged into power source? check your usb cable by trying to power up something else.

Laptop will not power up with Adapter


It sounds like there is a problem with your motherboard. You would have to take it someplace to run diagnostics on it. It may be time for a new laptop

Laptop wont power up with Battery Installed


When you don't have the laptop battery plugged in, the power routes directly to the mainboard of the laptop. When the battery IS plugged in, it reroutes to the battery, then the battery powers the mainboard and charges at the same time.

It's likely that the route between either the power board and the battery or the battery and the mainboard is broken somehow. To fix it, you would need it professional stripped down and some soldering may be required and perhaps new parts such as capacitors.

To get someone else to do this would prove quite expensive. Might be worth checking up on your laptop warranty or considering the worth of your current laptop against the cost of a new laptop.
