That indicator is not the Power one, is the "plugged in" one. I also own an Aspire so I know this.

Laptop wont start.


Remove the battery and unplug the power cord for 5 minutes, put in the either the battery or the powercord and power on.

if it doesn't power on, make sure the charging light is lit on the front of the laptop when the power adapter is inserted and plugged in properly.

light blinking when you power on means battery low / no power.

If the problem doesn't go away you need to contact acer for warranty service if you are outside warranty contact a local repairer.

My laptop is completely dead, fine yesterday. Today no lights, sounds nothing. I tried removing the battery , unplugging no response. Thanks,


Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes... Then put it back and then plug in the charger and switch on the charger. If the battery is completely drained, it would take a while for the charging to initiate. Please have patience and leave it on charging even though without the charging indication for at least an hour. After that still if the charging indicator doesn't lit, then its definitely your charger or laptop. You will need to take it to a service centre in that case.

My samsung laptop will not turn on. How do I fix this?


Hi

Possible reasons why your laptop doesn't boot ( Power on with green light indicator lit)

-battery problem
-memory problem
-power failure
-etc ( maybe one of the hardware that is connected inside your laptop)

Troubleshooting steps:

1. First you need to try switching on your laptop without the battery
Basically you will remove the battery of your laptop and connect the ac power then switch it on.

a. If your laptop boot up ( with a green light indicator ) the problem will be the battery.
b. If the laptop does not boot up continue using step 2.

2. Unplug the power adapter , remove the battery and memory
Watch this video and it will help you to remove the memory

NOTE: Your not going to upgrade your memory!

After removing the memory put it back close the panel and put back the screw.

Now after putting the memory , Try to plug the ac adapter and press the power button and check if your laptop will boot ( No need to put back the battery because your laptop will power up with out the battery )

If your laptop will still have the same problem the best thing to do is to bring it on the nearest support center for Samsung laptop because there's a possibility the problem will be the hardware that is connected inside your laptop.

I want to provide you the complete information on how to open your laptop however since your just new with this and to avoid any damages the best thing that you can do is to bring it on laptop specialist if the troubleshooting steps that I provided will not work.

Be careful Alright! Good luck
Have a nice day

I have plugged in my new laptop correctly but when I tried to switch it on the laptop does not respond. Is my laptop broken or am I missing something?


Hello,

Thank you using fixya.

Here are the things that you need to do:

1. Use a different power outlet. Maybe the outlet is bad.
2. Check the ac adapter. check if the light is lit. The light is a power indicator. If there's no power on it, then, you have to make sure that it's not broken or it's connected properly to the power outlet.
3. Check for any power indicators in the laptop. Like lights lit or the charge indicator. If there's none, then, the laptop is not receiving any power. It might be caused by a defective battery.
4. Remove the battery. Plug in the laptop to the ac adapter without the battery on it. Check for power indicators. Press the power button.

Let me know if there's any development. Leave me a message in this post.

Is there any lights indicators lit up on the laptop?
remove the battery and the ac adaptor and press and hold the power button (for 10-15 sec) with the battery and power cable unplugged
now try powering up the laptop
check whethere the bluetooth and the power light is lit up
this indicates that there is a memory dump issue in this case you need to reseat your memory strips
for that underneeth the laptop there will be memory door
unsrew door the and open the door and you can take the memory strips out and reseat it back

Laptop is turned off but the lights are still on


Can you describe the symbols that are next to the lights that are still lit?
If your laptop is still attached to mains power (ie your power pack that feeds DC voltage to your laptop) the battery pack may be still charging (indicated by a light) The battery pack is internal to your laptop and this powers your laptop when the power pack is not connected to mains.
Try disconnecting your mains power and see if a light goes off. If it does then that light is the light which indicates charging is in progress.
Other lights that are typical to laptops are:
a. hard drive activity (usually lights when the hard drive is being used) Usually has an adjacent symbol which looks like a metal can or cylinder.
b. bluetooth (wireless connection to other bluetooth devices such as cell phones, other bluetooth devices such as another computer) Adjacent symbol looks like two triangles side by side.
c. sleep (usually lit when your laptop goes to sleep and saving power) This may be covered by the power on lamp mentioned below, and the power light may flash to indicate the laptop is in sleep mode to save battery power.
d. power on (lights when your laptop is ON)
e. battery charging (as described above). There is often a symbol adjacent to this light that looks like a small battery.
Good luck,

Put in a branbd new battery. Power adapter is OK.


Your motherboard does not need replacing provided the problem is the power socket on the motherboard.
If the power adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

I have a problem with asus eee 901. I've just bought it. It had linux, but it was changed into windows xp. Since it had been fully charged only once I was using it on battery and setting it up with new...


Remove the battery for a couple of minutes while the unit is not plugged into the a/c adaptor. Reinstall the battery, plug the unit into the a/c adaptor, and see if it will boot up.
