Not at all. Especially if the power adapter is providing enough power to both run the netbook & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your netbook voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the netbook) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the netbook's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the netbook's rating. It should never be less than the netbook's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery.

The labtop doesnt boot when the charger is placed in and it also goes of when the charger is put in


Is the AC cord the original? Has it been damaged? Have you tried another AC cord, with the EXACT same power specs? It may be a damaged AC jack. Sometimes a pull or tug on the cord while plugged in will loosen the connection. If you wiggle the cord at the jack plug does it cause the charge LED to blink? Does the computer work on battery?

Short in power cord


I recommend that you dispose of the power cord and replace with a new cord as they are no longer able to be repaired due to sealed plugs. They are fairly cheap too these days costing between $5 and $10. This is a much safer thing to do than to try and repair your cord as it may be fixed very well but if repaired it will increase the risk of damage or fire by 110% as they are designed to work at certain limits and if the repair causes it to fall below or exceed it then this is where major problems can arise. I hope this helps.

Bad power cord or bad connection on laptop?


Probably the DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer. Take a ink pen and stick the tip in where the power cord goes to see if it wiggles. If so, that's your problem.

remove the battery and check if your laptop can boot or turn on for the matter, if so then the problem is the battery if not then the problem is either the laptop power protector is busted or perhaps the port or the adapter itself is bad.. to check the adapter use a tester to see if there is any power coming out if so then the problem is either the port or the motherboard itself.

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


Hello,

The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

Acer Aspire one battery won't charge. Please advise my options. Thanks


This problem is usually caused by either a worn out battery (if you've had it for quite a while) or a faulty adapter/power cord. If you know anyone who has a similar Acer Aspire One Netbook, you could try using their battery and/or power cord to narrow down the issue. You can also buy laptop/netbook batteries relatively cheap on eBay and even if the batter ends up not being the issue, you will have a spare battery to take with you or for down the road when your current battery wears out.

I Dell Labtop is not turning on. 3 lights blink continuously


do you still have your battery working? if not, you may have a problem with the adapter. could be a partial contact from the main adapter or at the charging port on your laptop. use a tester and check for continuity on the adapter cable and also check the power output going into the laptop.

Compaq Presario needed a new battery was installed labtop will not charge up!


When you install a new battery and remove a battery always make sure the laptop is completely shut off and have the power cord removed so that you avoid any possible power surge.

Batteries generally don't last much longer than a year and I have found removing the power cord or battery when it is off to be a good practice.

Before you charge a battery make sure it is run most all the way down. Recharging a battery when it is not run down can give it a memory and you may only be able to charge it up to the point you started charging it.

Anyway, if the computer won't charge a new battery then you could have a bad motherboard. To be sure try another battery.
