Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The laptop won't turn on, I checked the power cord, and the light is on the brick. I checked the battery pack. There' is no lights on the front either. It's like there's no power but I know there must be. I've only had this laptop 9 months. Any assistants would be greatly appreciated.

My laptop won't turn on. I tried taking out the battery, a different battery, a differnet power cord. It won't turn on. Is there a way to reset it?


Are there any lights or indications on the battery itself that might tell you if the battery is good? I had a laptop with a similar problem and it turned out to be both a bad battery and a bad "power brick". replacing both fixed my issues. Also, try holding the power cable at the point where it connects to the laptop and push to the left or right. A friend's laptop would only start if you held the power cable to the left. Otherwise, it sounds like a mother board issue. Sorry.

Inspiron 1545-my AC adapter doesn't seem to charge my battery


Check the LED Your Dell Inspiron 1525 offers five small blue LED lights on the front left corner of the laptop that display the status of various areas of your machine. The middle light shows the charge status of the battery, with a solid light indicating charging. The light changes to a blinking sequence as it nears full charge and turns off when full. Without the adapter cord plugged in, the battery LED turns orange as the charge runs down. Check the color of the light to verify charging status.
Verify Connections and Power
Start with the simplest cause and work backwards to the laptop. Use a different electric device to check for electricity from the wall outlet. Verify that the connections of adapter cord are tight and secure at the wall outlet, the brick and the laptop. Check the adapter cord's brick for a small LED that lights to indicate the presence of electricity.
Check the Battery
Battery issues can prevent proper charging, ranging from something as simple as a mis-seated battery to as serious as a completely dead battery. If the adapter seems to be functioning properly, try removing the battery and checking the small metal contacts in the laptop. Clean any corrosion or dirt from them to ensure a solid connection. Reseat the battery so that it clicks securely into place. If in doubt, try purchasing a replacement battery and see if that works.
Check the Adapter
Unless you keep your adapter cord in one place and never move it, every day use of the cord can cause the wires inside the insulating material to fray and kink. This wears them down, and can cause short circuits. The circuitry within the brick can also short out, preventing the delivery of the proper amount of voltage to the 1525. Use a voltmeter to double check that the cord is supplying the correct number of volts to the Inspiron.
Inside Problems
Internal issues can prevent a battery from charging, such as short circuits and a broken adapter port. The adapter port, the small opening you plug the end of the adapter cord into, is attached to the motherboard to carry the electricity to the various internal electronics. If this component breaks loose from the motherboard, the electricity can't go anywhere. A repair shop can fix this, as well as diagnose any other short circuits, for you.

Toshiba Satellite C655-S5082. Won't power on. Worked fine last night. Today it won't turn on. Plug it it and no power light. With power cord plugged in when I push the power button the light for...


Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.

"battery doesn t charge how do I know if the power cord or the battery is bad on my Presario M2000


If the battery is over a year old then it could be dead.Anything over two years I would bet on it. Usually the power bricks are very reliable. To check it you just need to put a power meter on it and check the voltage against what is printed on the brick. It should be slightly higher.

Without a meter it is pretty hard to check. You should get some indication that it is plugged in. It may have a power light on the brick or the laptop that shows it on even if it wont charge.

I hav a hp nx6120 but doesnt switch and wen you plug in the charger its no lighting


Take a look at the back of the laptop. Is the gold power pin still there or is it now stuck in in the end of the power brick cord?

HP actually extended the wty on these machines because of the
power pin issues. If the power pin is missing you will need to have the machine serviced. Out of wty, replacement power pins are easy to solder on the board if this is the issue.

If your pin is still there... Your AC cord or power brick may be the next things to check. Connecting them to a meter will tell you if there is power. Try moving the cords to check for shorts in the wires.

If your AC cord and brick are good, try pulling the battery. Your laptop can run off AC only. Batteries with bad cells can sometimes prevent the machine from powering up.

If its still not powering up after all of that, there may be an issue with the motherboard in the machine.

It want turn on. The lights want comeon. The cords O.K. and the power packs O.K..


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

My mx6128 is dead


Check and see if your power brick's light is on. The power brick is that black block of plastic on your power cord. If that light is dead then the power brick is bad. That should be your first item to check.

My Compaq wont turn on!


That flashing usually indicates a battery/power issue. Could the battery be dead? And/Or the power cable? Normally the power cable has a "brick" in the middle, and that connection could be loose. In many cases that brick has a led light when it is plugged it. Does your machine have that light and if so, is it lit? Does the "charging" or "AC power" light go on when it's connected via the power cable? Lastly, try removing the battery entirely, and using just the power cable, to make sure the battery is not causing the problem.
