laptop does not post: (then it is a hardware problem)

  • first.check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning,
  • if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.
  • Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
  • remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives remove the memory sticks,
  • clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
  • swap them around if you have more than one,
  • try one at a time.
  • if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible,
  • or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
  • if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok,
  • it may be that the motherboard has failed
  • Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.
  • it could be the cpu has died
  • the only way to check that is to replace it in ,
  • but i am sure you don't have spare cpu's laying around,
so i guess its into the repair shop.Unless you are capable of removing the motherboard & having it tested.

good luck with that and let me know how you get on.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

There is nothing much to track, as if you've tried a charged battery and no battery and mains then it's likely the PSU is toast in which case check if it's still under warranty

The power supply to my c640 has a green light that flashes when plugged into the laptop, if i unplug it from the laptop, the light stays steady and green, do i have aproblem, the laptop will not power up...


Is the battery charging when you plug the power supply? If not, while the battery and the power supply is plugged in go to BIOS, that will be F2 when your computer boots up, from there check on battery health or battery info you will also see the ac adapter if it's detected if it says unknown try to use another ac adapter if it is detected still try to use another adapter. If you still have the same problem after trying a new one. You'll need to replace the motherboard

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Dell Inspiron 1721 - screen goes black


check the light on the power supply that you are hooked up to. before you plug it into the laptop see if there is a green light when the plug has power from the wall. if you see a green light on...good. it means the power supply is responding correctly so far. if you get no green light, then your transformer is out in the psu. if you get a green light and plug in to the laptop and the light goes out, one of two things could be going on. first there could be a short in the psu like the previous tech said, the second more serious issue could be the power controller on the motherboard. they've been known to go out. like the tech before said. try another power supply if you can. but if you are getting a green light on the power supply before you plug it in...there may be another problem with it.


good luck!

ASUS A8JP Will Not Power On


"When the charger is connected to an AC source, the green LED shines steady and bright."

are you talking about the led on the AC-adaptor? cause if its that led that dims down, its a defective ac-adapter (even tho you still might not believe me). replace it and try again.

how would you know that the battery is fully charged?


please rate my solution after you have tested if it works out for you :)

Wont turn on


Hi,

you have one of 3 things wrong here.

1:) the battery is dead, and needs to be replaced ( suggest e-bay china seller for cheapest )
2:) the AC adaptor or dc socket on the motherboard is Faulty.
3:) motherboard fault, regarding charging circuit board.

Go for the most cost effective option First. New Battery. Then AC Adaptor. Finally would be motherboard replacement.

Laptop won't turn on


The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.
