Sounds to me like a short circuit either in the power receptacle in the laptop, the motherboard or any of the components attached to the motherboard.

First to diagnose the power receptacle, please refer to the following tip written by me:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6395191-troubleshooting_laptop_power_failures_ac

Next, if you made sure that it is not a power receptacle problem, then you will have to disassemble your laptop, removing one component at a time & testing. First start by removing the battery, hard drive, RAM modules, CD/DVD drive, wireless card adapter, .... etc. Continue removing the parts till you only have the motherboard, testing after you remove each component. Once you get the power LED on the power adapter to glow when plugged to the laptop, you then know that the component you just removed is the faulty one that needs to be replaced. If you reach the point where all components have been removed & only the motherboard is remaining, then the mother board is the defective part that needs to be replaced.

Advent power adaptor flashes green


does the charge light come on? It could be the connection piece of it, they are made pretty flimsy..

If you know how to safely do this check the voltage on the computer side of the adapter for the proper voltage.. sounds like it's on it's last legs though.

Dell Inspiron 1721 - screen goes black


check the light on the power supply that you are hooked up to. before you plug it into the laptop see if there is a green light when the plug has power from the wall. if you see a green light on...good. it means the power supply is responding correctly so far. if you get no green light, then your transformer is out in the psu. if you get a green light and plug in to the laptop and the light goes out, one of two things could be going on. first there could be a short in the psu like the previous tech said, the second more serious issue could be the power controller on the motherboard. they've been known to go out. like the tech before said. try another power supply if you can. but if you are getting a green light on the power supply before you plug it in...there may be another problem with it.


good luck!

Power light cycles to red, no other lights on


Hi der... well the issue your facing is simple to say ur power adaptor is faulty. Usually its due to some electrical shorts or maybe some heavy lightnings. You can always have a remedy for it.

1st : Buy a new adaptor.
2nd: call ur ISP to have it replaced if ur still under some contract term or if the modem is still under warranty.
3rd : you can buy ur own ADSL2+ modem from supporting outlets . Make sure ur isp supports this modem.

This are the solutions for ur problem pal.. So make a wise decision.. Any needs and help post it to FixYa..ANd the experts here will fix ya..!

On the issue with th ebattery on the 1521 inspiron. Took battery out and plugged in still will not power up. Could it be the adapter as well?


On the ac adaptor, look for a green light that will turn on when you plug it into the wall outlet, if its on that means the ac adapter working. If you get a green light on the ac adapter but then the green light goes away when you plug it into the laptop then that means the laptop has a bad motherboard.

If you plug the ac adapter into a wall outlet and get no green light then that means the ac adapter is bad and you would need to get another one.

I have a Dell D600 (PP05L), its not powering up no lights. I noticed on the power adapter the green light goes out when plugged into ac power. What could be wrong here? please help


Hook up your power adaptor to ac power without it being hooked up to the laptop and see if the green light stays on. If it does then you know your adaptor is okay. if your adaptor is only hooked up to ac power and the green light still turns off then you know your ac adaptor is bad.

Take out the battery from your laptop. Now hook up the ac adaptor to the laptop and if it stays green then you know your battery is bad but you also want to make sure you can get your laptop to turn on. Hopefully it will turn on with only the ac adaptor hooked up to it.

Seems to be no power to speakers.


Disconnect green speaker jack from computer and see if you get a green power light on speakers. If the speakers indicate they have power, your sound card or circuit is shorting out the speakers. If you still have no power to the speakers when disconnected from computer, then no green light means no power to speakers. Either you’re A.C. adaptor is bad or the speakers are shorted out. You have 2 options:
1) Replace A.C. adaptor.
2) Replace speakers.
If you buy new speakers, make sure that they have their own power source (A.C. adaptor).
