That could mean that the battery is damaged and needs replacing.

Hope this helps!

Elite book 2640 blue light light on,yellow light flashing,screen blank


yellow light sounds like charge indication.If you press the power botton the fan should spin and you should be able to open the DVD by pressing the button on the tray.These are 1st steps to check motherboard function.If there is RAM installed remove battery after turning off power supply.Open memory door and reseat RAM.Replace cover then battery - power on.Any picture?Try an LCD monitor - no picture? Try different RAM or 1 stick at a time,remember to remove battery or RAM will be damaged.Still no picture - remove battery and try with AC adapter only.Still no picture - remove AC hold down power button for 30-sec plug in AC only and press power button.Still no picture - check CMOS battery if it uses a CR2032 button cell it may be flat.This can cause a no boot situation.If the CMOS has a plug or is soldered to the board that should be OK.The button cell may be hidden in the chassis anyway and to change it will require disassembly.So replace it when doing the cleaning.Still no picture - GPU is faulty.The unit should be disassembled and a reflow of GPU done,as well as cleaning all dust and fluff from the fan and other cooling system components.Airflow restriction of the cooling system is the cause of overheating and GPU issues.Google disassembly for your laptop and reflow method for GPU.If you have no experience with disassembly a step by step guide is crucial.Breaking parts is easy so extreme care is very important.

Wont power up


The DC jack in the laptop is the most likely trouble, first! remove main battery and power supply from the computer, now press and hold power for 2 minutes to drain off residual voltage, next plug everything back in and attempt startup, if no change! computer must be dismantled down to the motherboard to address.

Toughbook will not start, we have it plugged into the wall and when we switch it on the battery light turns red and nothing else happens? Thanks, Brad M.


> battery light turns RED

For Panasonic computers, that indicates that the battery is almost completely discharged (it's YELLOW while charging, and GREEN while fully-charged).

So, my guess is that your AC adapter has failed,
and that your battery needs recharging.

Or, the socket where the AC adapter connects into your computer is damaged, such that no power from the AC adapter is reaching the computer.

Take a "MultiMeter" and check the voltage & amperage output-level from your AC charger. If "zero", go onto eBay and search on the part-number, to find a compatible replacement part.

Blackberry curve 8900, red light will come on for eight seconds when connected to AC power then a battery with a blue lightning bolt will show up on screen. Once AC is removed device goes blank. I've put...


The battery is drain.

DO NOT use the USB cable to charge your Blackberry.

When the PC/Laptop/Mac go to power saving/SLEEP mode it will cut off the charge to the Blackberry.

Use the official AC charger to charge the Blackberry.

Make sure the AC power is not switch off to the power pack at night.

The mini USB connector can be loosen over time.

Plug in the cable and check for connectivity.

Definitely try without the battery. These models are known to have a "short" problem, usually with the palm rest, which causes this failure, although it usually is more sporatic, and doesn't happen 100% of the time.
Also, can you remove all but 1 piece of memory.
Good luck, and let us know what happens.
