Hi,
you can try the following:

  • Remove the battery and connect just the AC adapter and try to boot up. If it works then install the battery, if not
  • Remove the battery and AC and press the Power button for 30 sec
  • Under the netbook, ( when turned upside down) on the right-side near the windows key sticker you will see small hole use a pin to press this button. This will reset your HW.
First 2 solutions worked for me. I had issue with my battery calibration. After leaving it 24h on the AC all back to normal.
Hope it helps

If your system won't boot up with just the AC adapter connected, it means to say that there's a problem with the AC adapter or the motherboard of the computer. Basically, if the AC adapter or the motherboard is damaged, you won't get a charged battery. If there's another AC adapter that you can try your computer with then that will be great. If antoher AC adapter works, then you just have the AC adapter replaced. If a known AC adapter didn't work then you may need to consider replacing the motherboard of the computer.

SOURCE: Battery will not charge/ keep computer on. laptop

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.

Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs as the original. Has the AC jack in the laptop been damaged, loose connection, due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Try to wiggle it when plugged in to see if there is any connection. The AC jack may need replacing, if your lucky.

My nv79 notebook charges up my battery to 100% the charge light turns blue and after 1 minute cuts off and requires restarting to start charging again


Try removing your battery and power on your computer with your power cord only. If you have no problem with the power cord alone, then you need to replace the battery.

I hope this helps!

Swap out the ram one at a time testing to see if you can power up, making sure there is one in the memory slot at all times, if this works the piece in your hand is defective, no difference! the motherboard has major issues.

Asus UL50VT always shows charging


Either your battery or the power cord has an issue. Does the battery ever fully charge and make the charging light disappear or turn green? If not the battery could be bad.

Try running the computer off the battery by removing the power cord. if the battery starts losing charging strength real quick then your battery is bad. I've see bad batteries that say they are 100% charged but as soon as you remove the power cord it gets down to 5% i a matter of minutes.

Try running the computer on just the power cord. If it stays on and lets you operate without any problem then the power cord is good. A good power cord will not charge a bad battery.

If the laptop does not let you stay on long with the power cord, then either the power cord is bad or the DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is bad. If either of them is bad they will not charge a good battery.

Check your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Aspire 1 laptop won't turn on but the light bulb


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Need to check the power cord to see if it is running at 19.5 fisrt. The power cord may be your whole problemand it cheaper than the other problem I see.
If power cord is ok take battery to the battery store to check it's cells. it sounds like to battery is bad. but the power cord should still bring the unit up. If the battery is ok and the power cord checks out the charging unit is bad and is costly.
