The power adapter might be defective.
When you plug the power adapter to your toughbook wiggle it a bit, if any sign of lights are visible, you could have a loose contact.

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels May 01, 2008

    hmmm..that's not too cool...Jamie's on to something here...however, one thing..can you run it on battery without the ac plugged in?

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels May 01, 2008

    ok..so it runs on battery, but not on ac by itself..

    can the ac adapter recharge the battery when computer is off?

    trying to determine the conditions there.

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels May 01, 2008

Won't charge


Not really enough info here but I'm assuming you have a laptop that won't charge?

If the laptop runs while plugged into the AC power adapter but will not charge the battery, the battery will need to be replaced.

If the laptop will not run with AC adapter AND it won't charge you should test the AC adapter to confirm operation. It may be faulty. If it's not you likely have a bad system board on the laptop and should replace the laptop.

Microcenter.com has very good refurbished laptop deals that may suit your needs.

AC adapter 4750z


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

If you need to buy a new laptop charger, the following to adapters are for your reference:

Advent k200 laptop does not charge new battery


Hi,

Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.

1. Removed the battery.

2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.

3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.

4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

No power


HI,
you haven't mentioned clearly is the laptop in on state or are the batteries able to give power to laptop to start

try this solution if you have checked that the Ac Adapter is finr

take out the battery from the laptop and then plugin the AC adapter and then try to start your laptop

if your laptop starts without the battery by getting power through the Ac adapter, most likely your battery is Bad, get it replaced, if it doesn't start then it can be power circuit on the motherboard or the connectors you should get it checked from a technician.

If you think my solution was helpfull please do rate me

Acer Laptop Does not power ON At All!


Either the laptop has gone bad or the power supply has gone bad. You could buy a universal power supply at Best Buy, test your unit and then return the power supply. Not very moral thing to do but it will tell you if its the supply or the laptop. If it is the supply then you'll have a spare.

Power problem


Check the port on the laptop where you plug in the adapter. Try to wiggle and see if you have a loose AC/DC input jack.
If yes, you need to have it repaired, unfortunately. If not, remove the battery then plug the adapter and see if you can see a light or if you can boot up the laptop.
You may try plugging it in on a different wall outlet.
Hope this helps.

Regarding battery problem/battery not charging


Hi Jasbir, Laptop batteries only have a set life span and if your battery does not hold charge the only solution is topurchase another battery. You will find the cheapest way to do this is to search the computer section of ebay [laptop assessories ]
and find the battery for your laptop model.
