Reset the memory modules and any other cards that are accessable, like the WIFI and modem cards.
Power up your laptop, does it work normally?
If not, then try rhe following steps.
Does it work when the battery is removed and the AC adapter plugged in?
If so you may have a bad battery.
Try this, unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery for a few minutes, leave the battery out and connect the AC adapter, power on your system, does the laptop work normally?
Power down, and reinstall the battery, with the AC adapter still connected, power up your laptop, does it work normally?
If not, the battery may be defective.
If NONE of the steps work then *********** board needs to be replaced.

I hope this helped, good luck and have a nice day.

Where are the fuses on a time8375


Usually in the wall plug. Laptops very rarely have internal fuses- no space for them and the actual power supply is housed externally.

Laptop battery light won't stay on


The battery might be dead. Batteries only have a useful life and after that they have to be replaced.

Does your laptop work ok off the AC Adapter Power Cord? If so, your battery is dead and your power cord is good. If the laptop does not work off the Power Cord then either your Power Cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is bad. In either case a good battery will not charge if the power cord or the DC Jack is bad.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the compute. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

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.

I Have A Compaq Computer But Got Some Reason It Cannot Be Charged.


Ok, your problem is not very well explained, I dont know if you are techy or nooby, also do not mention how old is the equipment. options:
1- Defective battery pack, HP has recalled a few battery pack models for them being defective, check with HP's website to see if yours has been recalled.
2- Defective or not working charger, HP and compaq chargers do not have indicator light unfortunately, so the only way to make sure is by testing the lead with a multimeter.
3- Broken cables within insulation, either power outlet to charger, or charger lead itself broken internally from being stepped on or run over by furniture. test them both.
4- Worse case scenario, if your charging light goes off and on every few minutes, then your power board may be going out or defective, battery not taking charge (dead), possible issue with mother board going bad.
Hope this helps a bit...

Ugg! When my laptop is not plugged in, it doesn't stay online. What is going on?


You will have to go to the power settings and set ethernet or wireless to stay on always Toshiba has this setting to save power with the battery.

Battery is dead


That's a typical problem with most the 1,5 years old laptops. We use them always on main power and the battery goes to dead. If you want to use it on battery change it....

When using the laptop it will suddenly power off completely. This may happen once and then not again for some time but often happens 2/3 times in a few minutes and then stays on fine.


Possible sources of problem: AC adapter, adapter cable, cracked solder junction at DC-In connector on the motherboard, battery is dead.

My toshiba laptop wont stay on, wheneve I turn it on it automatically powers off


I have the solution for the non booting Toshiba that I wrote almost a year ago. This tutorial (written and pics from the repair of my m35) is applicable to laptops that shut down without any warning, laptops that turn on only sometimes, and laptops that simply refuse to turn on (LEDs blink, fan spins up for a second and then everything just goes dead). So if your laptop does not turn on, it goes completely dead within a few minutes after bootup, here's the link to the tutorial. The repair takes about an hour, there's no need of replacing any parts, reinstalling any software or any other thing. The only investment in repairing your laptop with this tutorial is your time. Basically, you can repair your laptop within the hour, without spending any money for any parts or software.
