Compaq f700 won't power up


4 possibilities.
1 The Compaq f700 power supply is duff. How do you know it is actually working? Have you been able to test it on another system?
2 The charging circuits in the laptop have failed. Only a workshop can test this.
3 The Battery is dead. How do you know it is good if the system is not working?
4 There is a mechanical connection problem. Damaged lead/plug/socket etc. Examine and swap out to check.

Note that the system would not work if 1, 2 and 4 were the problem. (Since the system should still work of AC even without a battery).So a battery problem is the lowest probability.

Asus wont turn on


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:http://www.ifitjams.com/lappower.htm

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

My laptop not charging


When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?
1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

Or: 2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:
1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.
Or: 2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

The adapter light is on when first plugged in but then when I connect the adapter to my laptop the light goes off and it doesnt supply any power


I suggest check out the AC adapter first.

1) When plugged into power, and plugged into the laptop, gently wiggle the cable from the AC adapter TO laptop.

Any change?

Do the same on the power cord TO AC adapter.

NO?
Go on.

2) The port on the laptop that the plug from the AC adapter plugs into, is the DC Power Jack.
If we are discussing an Acer Aspire 5738Z Notebook PC, the DC Power Jack resembles this one, (Not installed),

http://www.batterysupport.com/acer-aspire-5738-jack-p-302046.html

(When I note the DC Power Jack, it is this link I will be referring to )

As you can see there is a Center Pin. All power removed from the laptop, use a small wooden, or plastic object, and see if this pin moves around.

ANY perceptible movement means a bad DC Power Jack.

DC Power Jack checks out it's back to the AC adapter.
Wanted to perform the easy diagnosis first.

This will require a multimeter. An economical, yet fine for this test multimeter, can be purchased for as little as $8 to $12.

Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Analog or digital is fine.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF3OyQ3HwfU

(Analog is fine. Some of us still like 'em)

DC Voltage is what you are going to check.

Black probe lead (Negative) goes in the Common port on the multimeter. (COM)
Red probe lead (Positive) goes in the Voltage port on the multimeter. (V)

If the multimeter just has symbols around the Function Knob, set it to the dotted line over a solid line, symbol.

The plug on the end of the AC adapter, that plugs into the laptop, has a center hole, and a cylindrical metal shield surrounding it.

The Center Hole of the plug is where the red Positive lead, of the multimeter goes.

The outside cylindrical metal shell is where the black Negative lead of the multimeter goes.

Hold the AC adapter plug in one hand, and at the same time hold the red Positive multimeter probe in the center hole.

With the other hand touch the black Negative lead of the multimeter, to the cylindrical metal shield on the outside of the plug.

You should read 19 Volts (DC), or VERY close to it,

I believe the AC adapter is the problem. Post back in a Comment as to your findings.

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

My AC adapter suddenly can't seems to be able to charge my battery. Please kindly advise


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced. Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Its a common issue for DELL systems. I recommend you request a MOTHERBOARD/AC /POWER CORD replacement .They can send a technician for you or send it to a depot repair.

sounds like the mother board is failed..try one more thing..remove battery, run on power supply only, and see if that helps..otherwise, it's motherboard replacement time.
