Well i accidentally pushed my earpiece into the USB and the computer suddenly shut down and wont on


Could be shorted. Try pulling all the cables out of your computer, those at the back. usb cords, power cords, baby jack. Leave it unplugged for 15mins and replug everything back. make sure you plug into it correctly

WHY IS MY LIFEBOOK NOT TURNING ON?


Most likely, in ripping the chord out of the power jack, the internal wire broke off. or the jack inside your computer broke its solder points.

Do you see any physical external damage?

My laptop shuts off after i turn it on.why


Does your laptop even begin the boot process where it displays stuff on the screen? Do you hear fans running, disk drives running, see lights, hear the cd drive click once and notice a light that comes on the cd drive door briefly when you press the power button? If not you computer either has a bad power cord, a bad dc power jack where the power cord plugs in, a bad mother board or static build up. 1) lets eliminate static buildup by removing the power cord and the battery then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then replace the power cord but not the battery and hit the power button. If it boots up you had static build up. 2) Take an ink pen and put in in the slot where the power cord plugs into the laptop, if it wiggles loosely then your dc power jack which is soldered onto the motherboard needs to be replaced. 3) If the power jack is tight and when you plug in the power cord if you don't see any lights or hear a fan, disc, cd drive, then you can almost bet your power cord is bad. 4) If the power cord is ok then you have a mother board issue. Normally motherboards will give some beeps or constantly blinking lights when you plug in the power cord and try to boot up. These beeps or blinking lights will tell the technician what is wrong with your computer.

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

Dc jack of labtop getting vey hot


A common weak spot on most laptops is the DC power jack. If someone trips on the wire while you have the power adaptor plugged into your laptop, chances are that the power jack will get damaged.
On most laptops the DC power jack is soldered directly to the motherboard and there are only three or four small pins holding it in place. Unfortunately that makes the power jack quite weak. Any sideways pulling of the DC power cord while attached to the laptop will usually dislodge at least one of these pins, breaking the solder around it. Modern laptops use quite a lot of power, from about 70W to 120W or even more. The bad electrical connection from the dislodged pin will cause sparks and heating that will eventually burn a hole through the motherboard and can even be a fire hazard.

The usual signs of that are:
  • The battery is not charging properly or stays at half charge despite that you have been using the power adaptor.
  • The screen flickers (the brightness is changing) while the power cord is plugged in. This is caused by the laptop switching between DC power (screen is brighter) and battery power (screen is dimmer).
  • The DC plug gets hot after a few minutes of use and may even smell of burning.
  • There are "scratching" sounds coming from the DC jack.
You need to take the unit apart and check/resolder the DC jack on the system board.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Power connection broken


Sounds like the DC jack on the motherboard is broken. The jack is very inexpensive, but difficult to replace as it's surface mount soldered to the board and the laptop will have to be disassembled or the plastic case cut/modified to replace the DC jack.

Power cuts out


whenever you plug the adapter to your laptop, there is a small pilot light which lights up. if it doesn't light up that means your adapter is not charging your battery. if it does, then maybe you should change your battery. just a little tip : it would harm your pc if it often goes off unexpectedly or improperly shuts down.

Attempting to load but suddenly shut off..


It sounds like the laptop was in a screen off state (happens when it is left on but not used for a while).  When you pushed the power button it went to shutdown, and notified you that someone (you) is still logged on.  Any unsaved work could be lost, hence the warning.  
Five minutes later when you went to switch it back on, the laptop coincidently must be low on battery, to the point where it will not stay on, and exhibits the problem you are experiencing now.  Try plugging in to power and make sure that the battery is charging, and try again.

Compaq Presario X1000 Power Issue


Two things... put your hand on the bottom of it.... is it really hot and second any chance of trying another power cord on that ?. I believe you mentioned you tried that cord on another computer. perhaps use the other cord on yours to test it .

Won't turn on


I bought two tvs and after about 3 months one of my tvs would not turn on; this tv was used more than the other one that is still working. I noticed that the power cord has a box that connects the two parts of the cords together, well the box gets very hot. I thought that the problem could be the power cord (may be it burned out) and not the tv. I switched power cords from the working tv to the nonworking tv and that sovled the problem.
