Take out the battery and try to start from the charger - if it's the same then you had a major hardware failure , most likely your motherboard has died. You need to take it to a repair shop for a precise diagnose and repair.

Sounds worst than that. As a test, remove the battery and plug it back in. Does the brick have any lights? When plugged in hit the power button. If you get NO lights, it is time to think about a new laptop.

Laptop repair is not cheap.

Tried to install a headlight modulator in a 2011 Triumph Sprint GT. now I have no power whatsoever, battery drained replaced with a new battery and still no horn, lights, or power


It sounds like another fuse is blown or possibly a relay. Check all of them, if none are bad, then make sure your battery cables are good, use a test light to check them. Its more then likely a bad relay though. Good luck !

Main power wires going to battery need to be checked. Sounds like the battery may be bad or the connection from the battery is bad. Replace battery if it is at fault. If not, clean the terminals and make sure the wires are getting good contact next.

No power or lights to toshiba nb205-n210 netbook


Maybe your motherboard is fried. If you know for a fact that the power cord is good and that the DC Jack on the motherboard is good but nothing is happening then the board is just gone.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

1993 Chrysler New Yorker 5th Avenue - I need to clear the computer error codes and I read on here one day where a guy suggested I disconnect the negative cable from my battery and turn on the headlights...


Never heard that. Sounds like he's pulling your chain-when you disconnect the battery(that's how I clear my codes) you can't turn the lights on-no power! And even after you hook the battery back up, turning the lights on or off has no effect whatsoever on the engine computer.Just remember, you'll have to re-set your clock and radio pre-sets after re-connecting the battery.

I own a 91 Mercury ( ford) Capri convertible. I went to start it and it turned for a second then died. All power to the car died instantly. There is no lights no radio no lighter no instrument light no...


Has to be a cable connection issue of some sort. Check the other end of the battery cables, either the ground connection to the chassis, or power connection to the under hood fuse box. Could be that one of the battery cables has broken inside the insulation yet the connector looks good. Try using a cheap ohm-meter to see if there is a break in either cable ...keep looking!

My Asus netbook won't power up at all. The last time it powered up I was able to login then I heard a whirring sound and the screen went black. Now there are no lights whatsoever on the netbook.


The whirring sound came from the hard disk - either it has died or thepower sent to it was too little to make it work .
Remove the battery and try to boot in the BIOS with the netbook attached to the charger - if you can't do that then you have a hardware failure. Remove the hard disk and try again - if it fails even now then the motherboard is gone.

Compaq Presario V6000 Power Problem


Sounds like the power supply might have died, probably before the battery did. Once the battery had run down, the computer simply died. Easiest way to check this would be to take it to a computer shop - they shouldn't charge you very much just to check the power supply - or try to locate another supply just like it and see if the computer will boot from the new power supply.

I would go to autozone or something and have them read the computer in your vehicle.This will tell you what those codes mean.Than go from there.
If I had to guess,there is a short or the computer is bad.
Good Luck
