    Does the laptop run on the power adapter?



    Usually, on the motherboard, you would check the solder connections on the receptacle that you plug the adapter in.

    (It may require extensive disassembly to check this.)



    There may also be a fuse for the battery, which if blown may prevent charging.

Your motherboard might be bad, cause, the power to charge the battery, goes through the mobo, to the battery, so your mobo is probably bad. I do agree with nilrem, you might have worn off the solder.

If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

T will indicate charging but it won't charge actor


If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

My Asus Eee PC 1001PXD battery won't charge. The charges light is on but nothing happens and now the battery is completely dead and I cannot get my notebook on


Your problem is far more than the battery. Your problem is the power cord. Laptops for the most part will work off the power cord even if the battery is dead or even if the battery is not in the laptop. Your power cord charges your battery and if it is bad it will not charge it. You've been working off your battery even though you might have had the power cord plugged in, but if it's bad and not charging the battery, the battery drains and then you can't get the laptop to power on at all. Go purchase a ac adapter and power cord that is designed for your system. Don't buy one that some of the big box stores sell that has a an interchangeable plug at the end designed to fit just about any laptop. Those will eventually burn *********** board out.

The charging indicator light no longer comes on when the laptop is plugged in. Just replaced the battery. Also tried a different power cord.


Possibly a failed or damaged charging port (does it feel loose)? After that, charger may not be chucking out the voltage (19.5 volts)? Test with multimeter set to DV volts, with one probe on the inside of the plug ant the other on the outside.

Does the charger LED light blink when connected (sign that power is not making a circuit)

If the above fail to work, then the problem is with the connector on the mobo, this may just be a Charger port needing replacing (wired or soldered version), or the charging circuit of the motherboard gone
