This happens when the battery is completely Flat.. In order for it to charge up it needs to be left alone to charge for at least 8 hours.. It is also possible that the battery has become so flat that it simply cannot be recharged via the adapter. In which case you will need a new battery, you would know after 8 hours...

My acer aspire v5-431 won't power on what do I do?


1. remove the battery and try AC only
2. Is the AC power supply warm?
3. Is the power light on but the computer is unresponsive?

1. Battery may have a short stopping the laptop from booting, replace the battery.
2. The AC power supply may be defective or the connector on the laptop is broken, replace the power supply/take the laptop to a shop.
3. The laptop may be in Sleep/Hibernate mode, press and hold the power button for up to a minute.
If nothing happens/is fixed at this point, Warranty/replace/take it to a shop

My laptop fan was not working


You did not say whether the laptop boots up or is dead.

Check the following:

1. Defective Battery will cause laptops to not power up

2. Defective AC power adapter

3. Try vacuuming the open grills on the laptop to suck out any debris clogging the fan



These are about the only things you can check as a consumer without opening the device and troubleshooting at the board level.

If none of these work then the laptop needs to see a MBD (mainboard doctor)

My dell d610 sometime powers up in to xp then just freeze them sometime just 3 geen lights flash then nothing can you help


If there is a power issue, the first thing we need to determine is if it's the power adapter or the battery. Is there any difference if:

- You boot up with the battery in but the AC adapter not connected?
- You boot up with both the battery and AC adapter connected?
- You boot up with the AC adapter connected but the battery removed?

If different things happen for each of these scenarios, the problem is either a faulty power adapter or battery, depending on which one you can boot up without.

Pc will not start, power button shows 3 blinking lights when pressed. but nothing else happens


i think bios is not booting up....this problem may be solved by removing the power cable and battery from computer, wait for 3 minutes and put the battery back.... now turn on only with battery power.... if it got booted, it will ask you to configure the bios.... once you are done with that your computer will work as a normal one....
if it doesnt bootup, then take it to an authorized service center and check it out....

My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.


Try the following.
1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
If yes - Battery is defective
If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
If lighted - it works properly
if not - replace
3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

Thanks. Cheers!

Laptop Toshiba Satellite A200 Model No. PSAF6A-02C01N fail boot


Try removing / swapping / reseating the memory.

Try booting with one stick only, if the top slot doesn't work, try booting the bottom slot. Try both sticks.

Let me know what happens.

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


Hi,

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.

HP Compaq Evo N610c doesn't boot


I think your battery was out of charge and your AC Adapter was defect so the laptop can't power up and can't charge the battery!

I cannot switch on my Acer travelmate 283XC. The battery went flat and I have now plugged it in the wall but when I press the power button nothing happens...


Try this; Disconnect from the AC outlet rmove the dc plug from the jack. Remove the Battery and wait for 5 mins and plug in the AC? DC adaptor without the battery. If the Laptop runs, then wait for the Windows to totally boot up and while running try to put back the battery and observe if it still charges. If not then try to replace the battery with a new one.


hope this helps.
