1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Why is my acer emachine charging blinks in red


That is a signal that your battery is almost dead or drained. If you have the power cord plugged in and the battery is not charging at all, that means the battery is dead and you need to purchase another one.

In windows xp you should be able to click Start/Control Panel/Power Options. When the power options window opens click the Power Meter tab. It will tell you if your battery is charging.

Now to isolate if it's really the battery that's dead or if it's the Power Cord that's bad. You might really be operating on battery power even though you have the power cord plugged in.
1) Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. Turn it back on with only the power cord plugged in. If it comes and and boots up ok, then your power cord is ok.
2) Turn the laptop off and this time put the battery in, but leave the power cord off. Now hit the power button and see if it boots up. If it does that means you might have a little power still left in the battery, but since it was not charging when the power cord was plugged in, the battery is bad because you verified in step one that the power cord is good.

Trying to run a digital projector from a car battery


I looked at the power requirements of this projector, 280W, but that assumes a nice sine wave. Your inverted is supposed to put out 400W, but it's a modified sine wave. Under ideal conditions (including a good battery) this might be just enough. Connecting directly to the battery will help a little, because of the limited ability to get current to and through the cigarette lighter. Using a 100 foot extension cord will diminish the voltage a bit (less so if it's a heavy gage wire). I would try connecting the inverter directly to the battery, run the engine and skip the extension cord. If that works, turn off the engine. If that works, try the extension cord. If it won't work with the engine running, connected directly and no cord - there are two possibilities: (1) the projector just won't run on a modified sine wave, (2) you need a bigger inverter. --- regarding (1) I have seen lots of people having trouble with various devices. You might want to ask Epson support. --- Good luck!

When I push the on button on my Gateway M-6843 laptop, all that happens is the battery LED on the front flashes 4 times an stops. The power LED does not go on. I purchased a new AC power cord adapter but...


We need to know what is defective and what is not.

  1. Remove the battery from the laptop.
  2. Plug the power cord to the laptop and plug it to the wall power outlet.
  3. Now, without the battery, turn your laptop ON.
  4. If it powers ON without the battery, then your battery is completely dead and needs replacement. If the problem is still the same, then it should be a motherboard problem considering that you have already confirmed that your power cords are working.
Try your luck. Post feedback if you need further instructions. The point is, you need to know if the battery is dead by removing it first then connecting your laptop directly to the wall power outlet. You can connect it to a Surge Protector or Automatic Voltage Regulator for safety purposes if you want.

It will not turn on even when plugged into mains


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.

With power cord plugged in and without power cord plugged in the pc will not turn on


remove the battery, plug-in power cord then power on. your battery may be completely drain and your power adapter can't give enough supply to power up your laptop and charge the battery at same time. if doing so power on your laptop, charge your battery for about 12 hours without turning the power of your laptop

My vaio turned off suddenly an the side light was blinking when i was trying to turn it on. Now i doesn't even turn on.What should i do?


Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing fixya.com
It's could be because of two reasons.
1. The Laptop is Overheated
2. The battery of the Laptop has some problems.

To diagnose this:
Step 1: Let the computer, be turned off for 15-30 minutes. Unplug the battery, Unplug any external Hardware connected to the laptop. Could be any external drive or any thing.

Step 2: After 30 minutes of disassembling the laptop. Let's put the battery back in & don' plug the power chord. Just give it a try to turn it on without plugging it in to the power jack.

Step 3: Still no joy, Try to plug the power chord back again & try to adjust it. Because Power port detects the power cord only after much adjusting of the cord and putting a weight on top of the cord so that the cord somehow makes contact with the power port on the laptop.

This is really the case with Vaio & Acer laptop because of their complex design.

Step 4: Check the voltage of your CMOS battery. if your battery is low it will fail to power up the system. if you leave it sit for a long period of time, it may be having a chance to "recharge" itself. This step should be done by a professional, because you might damage other part of the machine .

If your computer in warranty, Call Vaio Helpline right know. And, if any chance your computer is little old dont call Vaio help line because they charge heavily. Contact the local tech shop, even for your reference http://www.compusa.com/ it's cheap & good service dealer for laptop.

Hope this'll direct you in the right direction.

I cant reboot my screen its all white.


Turn off the pc, disconnect the power cord. Remove the battery. Leave it alone for a few minutes. Plug in the power cord (do not replace battery yet) and turn it on. If it works, turn it off, remove power cord and replace battery. Plug power cord back in and turn on pc again.

Hi Charlie, Thank you for your quick reply, The problem is I do not know how to check to see if it is a problem with the battery or if it is with the power cord. Although I am going off of the assumption...
