Laptop is not turning on

The computer is not chargering even though the adapter is plugged in. I've always had a few challenges with the computer staying charged. I'm not sure if it's the adapter or the port? I see an amber light but not the green one...any sugguestions?

Take the battery out and turn it on with only the ac adaptor, then put the battery back in.

Why my dell inspiron 17RSE 7720 will not turn on?


Detach the battery pack from the back of the laptop and let it be out for few minutes and reinsert it and restart your system after few minutes.

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.

Not charging Acer Aspire 5732z, now won't turn on!


If it does not work with the Charger while the battery is out then I would say either your charger is bad, the dc power jack where the charger plugs into the laptop is bad or you've got motherboard issues. Does the charger have a light on it to indicate that it is on when plugged in the wall? Do you see any lights when you plug the charger into the laptop?

Take an ink pen and see if the little pin inside the computer where the charger plugs is loose and moves a bit. If so that is probably your problem. If the pin is tight and the charger works, then you've got motherboard issues.

When I plug in my Dell Inspiron 1521 laptop, I get an error message saying it does not recognize my charger, will not charge and will likely slow down my computer's speed/performance. Everything...


Same topic on Dell official community, may it will help.
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/7311465.aspx

There is high possibility that your adapter is stuffed. Dell have built in a recognition circuitry into the 65w adapters and when that goes, the system will no longer recognize it as a 65w adapter even though it is still putting out 65w. The system then shuts off the battery recharge circuit and to make matters worse it won't even charge the battery when the computer is off. It also speedsteps the processor down to half its speed so everything runs slower. Only option is to stick with a slow computer that can't be used on batteries or buy another ac adapter.

If you do not want to pay $80 for a original adapter directly from dell, there is an alternative choice to get an 3rd party charger, check this link below:

My Acer Aspire 5630 laptop will not charge all the time, even though the charger is plugged into it with the green light indicating its working. Its charges every so often, then stop, and my computer shuts...


Hello.
The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem. The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.
If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Another suggestion is to remove the heatsink and apply new thermal paste or the motherboard may need replacing. Leave it to an expert if you are not familiar.

Hope this helps.

Red Battery light flashes when computer is turned off


The reason the battery indicator would flash is because its reaching the end of its useable life. Meaning that it will become harder for the battery to keeps its charge until it finally doesn't keep a charge at all. best thing to do is when your not using your laptop unhook the charger to it so its not always charging the battery.

To fix the problem though you'll have to get another battery unfortunately.

Will not turn on


Check the adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage on the connector plug should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label attached to the adapter.
OR
Borrow a working adapter, make sure it is the same or compatible to test your laptop.
