The first thing to check is the charger. Take it to a repair shop and have it checked. If bad replace it. If good then it is very likely the connector where the charger plugs into the laptop. This is a tedious repair and will requre a trip to the shop..

Battery won t hold charge


If your battery does not hold charge, and you don't want to buy a replacement, then there is not much can do other than to keep using your laptop with the charger. All batteries have a time life span.

Laptop won't startup on power or battery


Step 1:
Take the battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works. If it works, the battery may be the problem. Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop. Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity. If that light isn't on, try a different outlet. Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it. If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing. Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery. Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection. Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement. Unplug your laptop while it is running. If it still works, the battery has been charging. If it shuts off, or doesn't hold a charge very long, you have a bad battery. Unplug your laptop while it is off, then try to turn it on. If the battery is bad, your laptop probably won't turn on at all. Turn off your laptop's screen-saver when testing its battery. The screen-saver will conserve the battery and not give a clear time frame for how long your battery can really last. Click the battery icon on your laptop when it is unplugged. It can tell you how much battery life you have available. This icon is usually located in the bottom right corner of your screen and will provide the percentage of battery power you have left. Keep track of the time it takes to go from 100% charged to 1% charged. If this takes less than an hour, your battery is probably beginning to fail. You can also try this every week or two to see if your battery holds a charge for shorter periods. Factor in the amount of time you have used your laptop. Most laptop batteries last 2 to 3 years or about 500 charges. Wait a few days before determining whether a new laptop battery is faulty. New batteries sometimes take a few charges to build up to their maximum run time.

Clicking sound but engine won't start


This actually does sound like the battery is low on charge. A battery which is quite low on charge will still light the headlights and run many other electrical accessories, but will not engage the starter (which requires much more power than other accessories).
I would start by making sure that an electrical device, such as interior lights, glove box lights, trunk light or something else has not been left on. Then carefully jump start the engine. It is also possible that the battery might need to be replaced for not holding a charge.

My asus x59gl screen won't switch on, I can hear


Try holding in the function key (very bottom left key labeled Fn) and pressing F7. If that doesn't turn the screen back on, hold it again and slowly press F8 a few times. That should turn the screen back on if it was accidentally set to a different monitor, which seems to happen randomly on laptops.
If you can see a very faint image when its held at just the right angle, then you probably burned out the back-light.
Keep in mind, if you bought it in the last year, it is still under manufacturer warranty.

My computer won't charge! The problem is that where i plug in the charging adapter that "little hole" is loose and won't keep the adapter in, ultimately not letting it charge


This is really a physical damage to the slot for the plug.
There are some tweaks that you might try to keep it there, like pushing it and holding it with something, or use scotch tape or something similar, but ultimately it might affect the life of your battery.
There's really nothing substantial you can do other than changing the power adapter.

Has never charged, even after extended time periods - both with car charger and usb. Any tricks I'm missing. I've tried "ejecting" it but it just goes back to showing computer connection....


Sounds like the internal battery won't hold a charge and needs to be replaced. If you're "handy" you could do this yourself, but it's not for the faint of heart, and replacement batteries are available on the Internet. Here's a video that shows the procedure for disassembling and reassembling it to install the replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwAbKYOgiZg

I keep trying to get it to turn over but it keeps clicking and wont turn over. im thinking its the starter but it worked fine yesterday i had to jump it and it would turn over yesterday. i left it in the...


Most likely it is your battery. If it started when you jump started it then the battery was too weak, and it won't hold a charge, so when you park it overnigt it is not strong enough to start the bike. You may have loose or corroded cables and that can lead to a weak battery because it wasn't getting charged like it should. Unfortunatly when bike batteries get that weak they usually need replaced. Unlike a car battery they can't take the punishment of improper charging.

Car wants to turn over, gets fuel, spark plugs clean, fuse's are good


do you at least hear a clicking or clunking sound (possibly only a single click) when you turn the key to the start position - if there's not even that it's either a bad fuse or relay, if there's only a faint click (might not hear if hood is closed) it might be the solinoid on the starter; the louder clicking/clunk sound is likely the solinoid and just the battery may not be charged/holding a charge (iirc 5 years is the average life of most car batteries)

My laptop won't hold a charge, and keeps making a faint clicking sound, is it a problem with the laptop, or the battery?


Hi there

The problem is from your battery,it is getting weak that is why it can no longer hold a charge.

You should get a new battery to be able to solve this problem.
