    Have 2 identical,have swapped batteries and ac adaptors,no power.How do you troubleshoot th motherboard before buying and swapping it out?

  • Pieunome Apr 20, 2008

    Yes thanks. The battery seems to not be charge enough to crank the comp up. The charge plugged in will also not start the computer. I need a fully charged battery first before I can start to blame the mother board.

    my computer powers on with ad adapter and with the battery however it is on only for about 3 minutes, I can see that the power light is blinking and them the computer goes off. when i press the power button again the computer will not turn on even thought every time i press the power button the green light on the front is on for about 2 seconds, if I wait for at least two hours since i the computer worked for 3 minutes then in turns on again for about 3 minutes and the whose circle begins again. I have taken off everything that can be cousin the problem but nothing seems to work I even change the head sink and fan still no luck. I am guessing it is the power board or the motherboard itself. Please let me know if yu had the same problem how did you solve it?.

    my laptop aspire 3680 when plugged in using ac adapter won't start. LED's were not blinking even with the battery. i think the board is dead.

    When i plug in the ac adapter, i noticed the LED of the adapter is blinking and seems that there might be a shorted circuits inside.

    any help? ideas? thanks. email me at: waquita@tollways.net.ph

    I have an aspire 3680, it won't turn on with just the AC Cord, it acts like there isn't any power at all. When I plug in the battery with it the green light in the front is on but still will not power on. When I leave the battery in and unplug the ac adapter the green light goes out.

There are some reasons laptop can't power on, try to troubleshoot.
1. Make sure that your ac adapter is working. if you plug battery and ac adapter, the battery chargin led will be orange and if the battery is full, the led will be yellow.
2. Can you power on using battery ? if you can and you can't power on using ac adapter (i assume your ac adapter is working). the problem will be your power port.
if you can't power on using battery and your battery is working ok. the problem will be motherboard.

    for jamest1961.

    To troubleshoot your problem:

    i assume you have 2 laptop, 1 is working laptop and 1 is problem laptop (no power).

    for Aspire 3680, the power port isnot in the motherboard, it's on the separate board.



    To troubleshoot the motherboard, attached the live battery with trouble laptop. if your laptop can power on, it's mean your motherboard is ok. the posibility is either your ac adapter or the power board is bad.

    next step is plug good ac adapter to the problem laptop, if you can't power on it's mean your power board is bad.

These computers have power ports that are easily broken when you connect to a power source. twist the power/cable connecting to the computer untill it comes up with "charging", and leave it. To turn it on, keep disconecting a connecting the power, and twist untill somthing picks up, as soon as its booted, make sure you alter it to charge, then leave.

OR another solution...Another laptop might be the way to go, these laptops are sluggish as hell...mines running vista, 512mb or ram.. how does it even leave the factory with half the needs only of the operating system implemented? vista needs at least a gig...even then its shocking, my advice, stick with xp, much more better, the sooner vista comes of the shelf, the better.

Hello, so does the computer turn on without ac power, if it does it is a good indication that you may have a problem with the power supply or power connector in the computer.
