Hi,

If you are referring to the files inside the hard drive, then as long as it is not defective, it will last a very long time. Most hard disks can retain data indefinitely .

As to your concern with the laptop's charger/power supply jack, it is very possible that the connector simply lost its connection inside the motherboard. This could be easily remedied by re-soldering the two (2) pins of the said jack. What might be a challenge is the opening of the laptop to expose the underbelly of the motherboard.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, my lenovo 3000 Y 410 notebook does not turn on. I removed the battery and connected the AC adapter but i don't get the power supply to the laptop. i can't hear even a beep sound when i tried to turn on...


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

No power on but adaptor god

If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Ac adapter connection inside laptop doesnt work, light for battery charging will not turn on and will not charge


You adapter may be faulty, check it with a multi-meter, the voltage reading for a functioning adapter should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If you do not get a voltage reading then the adapter is faulty and you need to get a replacement adapter.
If you get a reliable voltage reading at the adapter plug, then connect it into the laptop and wriggle this plug. If the charge LED blinks. then the power connector on the laptop is loose/faulty and needs repairing.

anaturopath,
don't worry your data will not lost till your HDD is ok and you don't delete and/or format your HDD.
you should try:
  • Remove battery and plug ac adopter power on then try to boot. In some cases if battery is faulty you can on your lap direct from ac adopter. If its get on then change your battery it might be faulty.
Otherwise you should take a tour to your service centre.

Good Luck

Acer Aspire 3000 Power Issues


In this case myself assume that your acer do a problem in the memory, try remove and clean the memory.

1. boot your acer without the memory. hear beep? if yes,
Only memory has a problem, if no, then;

examine the mainboard of your acer.

If you can hear a beep then fix back the memory and start the system.

if this not solve the problem, replace the memory.

In case that it hard for you to open the laptop let the repairman do it for you so that all your problem will be examine.
