Take off the battery; then plug in the charge. If it works you have a bad battery. If it still does not work then you have a bad charger.

What does it mean when my hp desktop wont stay powered on unless my charger is plugged in

Desktop computers require power so you need to keep it plugged in. Laptops have batteries (making them portable) - if yours is a laptop and you have theses problems then either your battery is dead or you have a bad charger.

Alienware 6 Beeps when Powered On

sounds like a case of a wrong psu, you need to send the system back to Dell if i is still under warranty, if not the repairs for such a high end system are not cheap and can run into hundreds or more just for the boards to repair it!, contact them at and see about this issue as I have not had much experience with high end gaming laptops.

My M11x Alienware Laptop beeps 6 times at start

No a good idea to use a Cord/charger until you verify the power specs, they must be the EXACT same power specs in DC volts and milliamps , you may have fried a component/components in your Mobo. This may help diagnose the issue:

Monitor flashes on wont stay on. not original

Try un-plugging all cables from monitor then re-connecting. If this doesn't work then it must be to do with the charger issue.

The battery wont getr charged form the charger?

It sounds like you have a bad battery in your laptop. If your laptop is several years old you will probably need to replace the battery. I've seen many cases where the laptop will work when plugged into AC power, but not with battery only. Batteries Plus is a good place to find them and they will properly dispose of your old battery also. Don't throw the old one in the trash - please dispose of it properly - Save the Planet! Hope this helps.

Computer wont charge. Plugged up and still wont charge. Is it internal, battery or charger?

I'm not asking if the computer will charge, I'm asking if when you have it plugged in does the computer operate normally. You should be able to take the battery out of a laptop and plug in the computer in and the computer should still operate.

When i plug in my charger to my laptop it doesnt work and i dont know whats wrong with it

This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities. 1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge.
2.- Battery is bad.
3.- Battery charger board is bad.

1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge
Verify that the AC and or DC cable is not bad by testing the computer only with the power plug connected and the battery out of the laptop.
2.- Battery is bad
It is possible that if the power plug is good that the computer battery is bad. Leave the computer connected to the power with the battery connected in the computer for at least one hour; if the battery does not charge, consider having the battery and/or the laptop serviced or repaired.
If the computer and/or battery is not in warranty consider just replacing the battery as it is very likely that it is just a bad battery.
3.- Battery charger board is bad
If the battery has been replaced or an alternate battery from an alternate identical laptop does not work in the computer, it is likely that the power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.

This will fix your problem.
