Hi
I am sorry that the Computer is not turning ON.
Please remove the Battery and connect the Computer to Direct AC Outlet and also remove and reinstall the RAM modules.
If the same issue persists then the available option would be replacing the internal Hardware component such as Motherboard.

When i plug the charger in the orange battery light comes on and the computer turns off


Try removing the battery from the back and then running it directly through the AC adapter. Sometimes the battery and AC adapter have conflicts and it can cause a laptop to become inoperable.

If this doesn't fix the problem in any way, I would recommend trying a new battery or AC adapter.


hope this helps

Hello,
Did you plug your AC adapter in and then try to turn it on? It may be that your battery ran out of power. Try to plug your AC adapter into your laptop, wait about 2 minutes for the battery to charge, then turn on your laptop. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace your battery. The battery on that laptop is fairly cheap, ranging in price from $10 used to $60 new. If that doesn't work, your power button may need to be fixed. You then need to have it fixed by a reputable computer repair store.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

No power at all


If your monitor doesn't turn on, and you are sure of the power supply (some plug directly into the wall and some use a power adapter), then you can assume that the monitor has failed.
You can fix it (replace the power supply in the monitor itself or possibly the on/off switch), have it fixed by someone who knows how to do this, or buy a new monitor.
First, of course, be sure the problem is your monitor and not the computer. If the monitor light turns green and then yellow, you can assume it's the computer. If the monitor light doesn't go on at all, it's the monitor.

The laptop doesn't start but the charger works.


Take out the battery and connect the charger.
Then try to turn on the computer.
If it works, there is no problem with your computer.
After that insert the battery, plug in your adapter and try turning on once more.
If it doesn't work, you need to get a new battery.

Sylvania Netbook SYNE T07526-Serial #7128230710064387. Bought less than a year. Stopped turning on.


Hi there,

When you said it's not turning does it have any indication of power and just doesn't boot to your operating system or It doesn't have any sign of power at all?

If it doesn't have power, try to remove the battery plug it into the power outlet using the ac adapter and turn it on. Check the adapter to see if it has a light to make sure that the computer is receiving power.

If the computer turns on but you can't get to windows see if any error message is displayed and be ready with your windows cd/dvd because a reinstallation might be needed.

For laptop: Toshiba Satellite A105: My battery won't charge/computer won't turn on when plugged in. No lights show when plugged in. Don't know if it's a problem with the chord or the computer. Don't want...


Start by trying another power outlet.

The power adapter should have its own light. If it doesn't light up then the adaper is bad. Kensington.com sells very inexpensive universal power adapters. You might also find a good deal on eBay.

If the adapter lights up then it may be your battery. Notebook batteries are only good for 2-3 years. If you let them sit for a long time without a charge they may only last 1-2 years.

Vote for this solution if it helps.

Acer Travelmate C112TCi- Won't power on


Hi,
Remove the adapter and the battery from the laptop.
Press the power button and hold it down for 20 seconds(without the battery or adapter plugged in to it). This process is called POWER DRAIN.
Now connect only the adapter and try to turn it on.
If it starts up, there is no problem with the adapter or the laptop.
If it doesn't, it can be either the adapter or the laptop.
You will have to check it with a different adapter to confirm which one is faulty.

The second case is that the computer powers on only with the adapter.
Then you can put the battery back in and try powering it up.
If it doesn't work, try connecting the adapter too.
If still it doesn't work, its a faulty battery.

Sometimes after doing a power drain, the computer will work fine.
If you have any more issues, feel free to contact me.
