SOURCE: charging my asus 701 laptop

Usually what happens is that the ac connector on the laptop get loose. It happens when you wiggle the ac adapter out rather than pulling it/pushing it straight in. You can check if this is the problemsby
powering off the laptop. Insert the ac adapter. just slightly wiglle it. if it wiggles at all, then this is the problem. It can be fixed by resoldering the connector back on the System board, which entails taking the laptop completely apart.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: ASUS A8JP Will Not Power On

"When the charger is connected to an AC source, the green LED shines steady and bright."

are you talking about the led on the AC-adaptor? cause if its that led that dims down, its a defective ac-adapter (even tho you still might not believe me). replace it and try again.

how would you know that the battery is fully charged?

please rate my solution after you have tested if it works out for you :)

SOURCE: Powers up but nothing on screen?


I have come across this problem before.

Remove the battery and the power cord. Shut the webbook lid and turn it over. Underneath you will see a panel with screws, unscrew the panel and remove it. Now, take out the memory module.

Underneath the memory module you will see the PCB (printed circuit board) have a very close look for 2 brass triangles, they face away from each other forming what looks like a split diamond. Get a small flat headed screwdriver and short the 2 triangles (hold the head of the screwdriver over both triangles) and press the power button.

Replace the memory, cover and battery and turn on the webbbook.

Hopefully that should sort the problem out for you but you will have to set the date and time.

If this does not work please post back .

Good luck.

My ASUS laptop will not charge and will not turn on. 4 of the 6 lights are on.

When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?

1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:

1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.

2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

Acer aspire 3610 power lead transformer green light is on before plugging into laptop then goes out when plugged in.acer has nothing working, totaly dead any ideas?

If the power LED is lit before connecting to your laptop and then goes out as soon as you connect to your laptop, then you either have a short circuit in the power supply module of your laptop, or you battery is causing the fault.

Remove the battery and try again. If it powers up the battery needs replacing. If the problem is still the same then you need someone to look at the power supply module in the laptop

Installation of 2gb memory card

You can swap out the memory straight away providing the memory is DDR2 and runs at 800MHz.
All you have to do is power the laptop off, remove the power cord and the battery, then just remove the RAM cover and install your new RAM, put back the ram cover and battery and you should be good to go.
