My acer laptop wont turn in it just acts like there is no batterry in it and no power cord plugged in


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.

Hope this helps.

My Toshiba Laptop will not turn on the second light from the left is flashing orange


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

Laptop Not Power on Battery Mode


I understand that while the laptop is connected to the power supply it's ok, and while it boots up, even with the cord disconnected, it stays on but only briefly, but after a while, it shuts itself down?
If this is so, it would appear that your battery is dead and needs replacing. Your laptop will still work, as long as it's connected to its power supply. It should even work with the battery removed, provided it's plugged into the adapter.

When my labtop goes into windows xp it gives me a pop up saying change battey soon but it is pluged in to the wall and ive so whats wrong with it ?


can you go into control panel and look under power options? there you will see power meter on one of the tabs. click on it and see if you see if the battery is charging. if its not, there might be a problem with your power supply, the battery or the motherboard that controls the charge.

one of the ways to check if the power cord has problems is removing the battery and leave the power cord connected and see if it powers up normally. If it does, then remove the power cord and use the battery to do the same but leave the laptop on until the battery is totally drain and shuts down. try to turn it on a few times just to make sure battery is drained. then plug in the power cord to see if it charges your laptop. if all works then what you might need is to update your laptop firmware

New dell laptop dosn't boot from battary ,power cable shoud be pluged


  • two ways to charge the battery:
    • while the laptop is on
    • while using the laptop with a power cord, but it will take charging time when you are using the computer.
  • --if the problem persist, the battery may have a problem, called dell technical support and have the battery serial number for possible battery recall. or replacement

-that is stating that there is an issue between the gateway AKA your router and the internet.

-try restarting computer first, if that fails to give you an actively working connection. if that fails try the following and that should clear up any issues you may have unless the internet is down for whatever reason, unpayed bill etc...

-so if there is a modem and a router unplug all devices from each other and unplug the router and modems power cords. restart computer. after windows boots up plug in ethernet cords back appropriately (telephone looking cables) to each other. plug the power cord to modem first then the router's power cord and your internet should be restored.
