Acer aspire 4743 not charging but all Okay.....

The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your acer aspire 4743 charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

Hey my compaq labtop battery wont work i tried everything like charging all night -nothing please if you know how to fix this please e-mail me at

The battery may have a failed protective device inside of it. If it new, the battery should be covered by warranty.

When the battery is installed in laptop and charger plugged in, there should be a light on laptop that lights up to show it is plugged into a charging source/ power source.

if the light does not light, see if it will light up with battery removed from laptop. If it does not light up, and you cannot power up the laptop- the power supply has failed.

My aspire 5740 showes 81% available but not charging, checked all power lines etc on balanced power. Bought laptop 3 weeks ago till today it charged up


Dont be panic. Your laptop has absolutely no problem.Your manufacturer had set a 80-20 policy for the laptop battery charging such that the battery wont be charged to 100 percent but it will charged only upto 80 percent. The makers of the lap are doing this because to give good life to the battery.You can change it by going into the power options inside control panel.

Thank you for your query

It would seem you have a possible DCf jack problem, causing the mentioned issues

If the DC jack is faulty it can cause the problems mentioned above.

I would recommend that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop for them to replace it

No power lights on gateway laptop model mx8711, power cord is working, does this model have a power fuse inside

Hi there.
The battery maybe faulty, remove the battery and try it on AC power only, there are no fuses that can be replaced inside the laptop.
If the laptop boots up on AC turn it back off and reinsert the battery and try to boot again, if it does not boot up then there is a problem with the battery and you will need a new one.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Power cord cuts in and out

There are two places the trouble can be happening, at the adapter plug or at the power jack in the laptop. To determine which one is causing the power loss, hold the plug in the computer steady with your fingers while you wiggle the adapter cable. (If you have access to a voltmeter you can measure the voltage at the plug while you wiggle the cable to see if remains steady.)

If the charge light flickers it's the adapter cord that's bad. Because the wire flexes so much at the plug, it can break inside the insulation and cause the power loss. You either need to replace the adapter or repair it by cutting off the bad end and installing a new plug.

If the charge light remains on with the plug held steady but flickers when you wiggle the plug itself, the trouble is on the main board in the computer. The solder connections at the power jack have broken from the plug flexing and need to be repaired. This involves opening up the computer and getting at the solder side of the main board. It's tedious but relatively simple. If you are not experienced with soldering on small electronics, leave this to a professional shop.

Acer Aspire 7004 wmsi Will not start.

When you press the power button does anything happen? such as lights or LED's illuminate?

You could try the following -

1. Make sure there is nothing plugged into the computer (USB devices or memory cards etc etc).

2. Remove the power cable & the battery

3. Press the power button for 30 seconds

4. Insert the charger but not the battery and try and start it up.

If that doesnt work check the USB ports for damage and the port where the charger is plugged in aswell.

If they are damaged or it still wont start it will probably need repairing.

Hp lap top will not reboot, restart nor retore

Sounds like a power supply issue.. Check the mother board for a light when the power is on (some mobos will not have this light). If there is a light, but it does not go on when the power is connected, replace your power supply.

Also, please post the model number of your computer.
