Hmmm..does it stay on long enough to check for screen saver mode? if not, use safe mode(F8) and then troubleshoot it.

My laptops shut down when i put the adapter and doesn't get start up , but it's work normally with betray


Problem description:The laptop shuts off when AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.
Possible cause:1. Power adapter failure.
2. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:First of all, test the power adapter. Make sure the adapter outputs correct voltage. It's possible that the output voltage is not correct and the laptop shuts down to prevent the damage. Test your laptop with another known good power adapter.
If the problem still exists, even after replacing the adapter, most likely it's the motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

Hello. Today in the morning my laptop (Asus A8Jseries) was working alright. Then after 6 hours when i tried to turn it on, it didn't. I mean, it starts to work and Asus symbol comes alone, but then it just...


If it happens only when you move the adapter plug inside the power jack, it's likely that you have a problem with the power jack inside the laptop. The power jack has to be resoldered or replaced.
If it happens even without touching the adapter plug, the problem could be related to the faulty power adapter.
You can test the power adapter with a voltmeter and find out if the ouputed voltage is correct. If the voltage is not correct, replace the adapter.

But don't trust that even if the output votage matches specifications. It's possible that the power adapter doesnt' work correctly under load. Test your laptop with another known good adapter. If the laptop works fine with another adapter, your power adapter is defective and has to be replaced.

Power is erratic. Shuts off randomly.


it could be caused by a lot of things. isolate it first. since its randomly shutting down, try first in normal mode. does it heats up before it turns off, if yes its an overheating issue. you may need to replace fan or even motherboard of your pc. have you checked your battery? is it properly seated? or is the problem happening when your system is plugged with the ac adapter? try to check the power cable.

HP 530 Notebook will shut off by its self and when you restart it and will show you that windows was not shut down properly. Could it need a new battery?


The problem lies with the power supply system either in the power adopter or inside the laptop. When AC power is plugged in, the system shows that the battery is being charged (Yellow Light Indicator switches ON) but practically niether the battery is usually being charged nor the computer is being run by the AC power. Its a little bit of energy left in the battery that keeps running you computer for some time and as soon as the battery is discharged the note book shuts down by itself.
However, the Taskbar battery indicator gives the correct picture of battery charge and the charging process. Better rely on that.
Its a hardware problem pertaining to power supply and charging system and doesn't have to do any thing with Mother board, RAM, Hard disks or other hardware installed in the PC.
Do tell the above details to a repair workshop man to rectify the problem.... Best of Luch
