There are 2 conditions that exist with Acers with flashing battery lights.
Some older models will not boot up if the battery is dead or faulty and removing the dead battery will allow you to boot up. Newer models will also flash the batt light but can be either from a failed power supply or power plug, as well as a shorted or defective battery. The best course of action in either situation is to simply remove the battery and try booting the computer from the power supply alone. Replacement batteries and power supplies can be found on Ebay for far less than the original factory part.

Are you plugged in at all? Try with plug plugged in. I think your battery is dead.

My compaq presario 2200 wont boot up...when i press the on/off switch without the a/c charger (battery alone), the amber led flashes twice....if i plug the charger in with the battery, the led blinks once...


Hello,

If the computer is not turning on, there is a big chance of hardware failure and normally there is no easy fix for this rather than a motherboard replacement.

6. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
7. Press 00189 (if your oneforall remote uses 4 digit or 3 digit codes, use less leading zeros)
8. Press 1 ( this sets it to key 1 - it flashes twice )

9. Hold the magic button until it flashes twice.
10. Press 994
11. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
12. Press 00255

The remote is now programmed and ready to use, to make the BDP-S360 region free:

2. Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the oneforall remote. The 24p light will start flashing. (Centre light)
3. Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote.
4. Hard reboot machine (remove power)to prevent the 24p light flashing indefinitely.
5. Next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback.

Gateway M-6862 laptop will not turn on; battery light flashing re


Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.


Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

1721 Inspiron shows flashing amber, three times, then blue.


The cells in the battery are starting to go bad which is why the light is blinking the way it is.

Once you get a new battery put in there the light will stay blue instead of flashing amber.

Booting up


one light is for hardrive activity , the other is to show the power is on.. the flashing one is most likely the power light as most computers will tell you when thier ill....the beeping is an error code and should be in some pattern EG: Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause. Or something like that. Take note of the pattern and repost it here, then we can give you a specific area to look at.

I have an Averatec laptop, series 2300. While I was using it, it just shut down (immediate shut down) and wouldn't boot up again. I have removed battery, Let it charge overnight, and twice it has come...


Are you just running it from the battery? It sounds like you may have a motherboard problem. I would first put in my OS boot cd and see if it boots from the CD. Let me know if you don't know how to boot from CD. If it does boot from cd then run a chkdsk /r on your hard drive.
If that doesn't fix it I would see if the power supply is not working again are you running from the battery without power supply?
Thanks,
Henry

Orange and green light flash


The flashing battery light is an indication that the system is attempting to charge the battery. The orange light indicates a problem charging one of the battery cells. This usually means that the battery either needs to be recalibrated or replaced. To recalibrate the battery just use the system until the battery is dead, then recharge and repeat the process twice, after which time the battery should be recalibrated. If this doesn’t fix the flashing orange light then the battery may need to be replaced.

hope this helps
