    Actually I did that. I took the battery out and let it sit awhile. Then I plugged in the AC adapter without the battery in But it still won't turn on! Then I tried putting the battery back in and the same problem is still there, no power. I bought a new AC adapter and it hasn't made a difference.

    You may need a new battery, they dont last verry long. I get every thing on ebay my self and save a lot of money. The battery needs to hold a charge.

Mini dell 910, no power


Here below are possible causes and troubleshooting steps of laptop that can't power on, hope it may help:
Possible causes:

1. AC adapter failure.
2. Power jack failure.
3. Motherboard failure.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solutions:
1. Test the AC adapter with a digital multimeter. It's possible that you have a failed AC adapter. If you don't have a multimeter, test your laptop with another known good AC adapter.

2.It's possible that power jack (socket where you plug the AC adapter) is broken. Remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. In some cases you can fix the jack by resoldering it on the motherboard. In other cases you have to replace the jack with a new one. Using a multimeter, test if the power goes to the motherboard through the jack.

3. If replacing the AC power adapter and jack on the motherboard doesn't help, most likely you have a bad motherboard. Replace the motherboard.

When i plug the charger in the orange battery light comes on and the computer turns off


Try removing the battery from the back and then running it directly through the AC adapter. Sometimes the battery and AC adapter have conflicts and it can cause a laptop to become inoperable.

If this doesn't fix the problem in any way, I would recommend trying a new battery or AC adapter.


hope this helps

You've to replace the ac adapter, if it's brick doesn't get warm or LED does not glow on Power Jack on the laptop. offcourse, check with the wall different sockets

power jack can also be loose. so jiggle the cable to find out.

finally, you can take out hdd and ram, put them back again and turn on the laptop. hope it will help

There's seems to be a short where the AC adapter goes into the Laptop. Loose parts in that area of the Laptop where the adapter goes in. It won't turn on. Maybe it's the battery.


Unfortunately, this is a frequent issue with laptops. Being moved around frequently can cause the AC Adapter to pull at the DC Jack on the laptop. If it is loose, it can mean there is a broken connection within the laptop. What you can try is powering the laptop on with it plugged in and the battery removed. If that doesn't work, I'd recommend going to your local Best Buy and picking up a universal AC Adapter. If that doesn't work, you can always return it, even if opened.
