Won't turn on

I was using my computer all day fine, went to work for a couple hours, and come home to my computer not turning on. The adapter is plugged into the wall, I've tried several outlets, and nothing happens when I turn it on. Even with it plugged in, no lights are showing that it's plugged in, like it usually does. I need help please!!

    I was playing a game and suddenly everything stopped! I can't turn it off so I pulled the battery and the notebook went dead.  When I try to turn it on, the caps lock icon and another one with the arrow pointing down keep flashing until the notebook dies down again.  The whole time the screen remains blank.

Sometimes it is the battery not holding the vharge. If that is not the case then it most likely is the adapter connector on the mother board where there could be a broken solder connection or the connector itself may be broken. I had the same problem with my hp laptop and disassembled it abd found a broken solder connection to the motherboard and the adapter connector. I just made a solder connection where it was broken and everything came on normally.

My computer won't turn on


If you tried turning the laptop on with NO battery but plugged into the mains and you get no response, even no little lights flickering then its possible that something to do with the motherboard (obviously, you might think) but get someone too look inside it if you can, something might be fried.
its a bit hard not actually seeing the machine

Hi,

Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.

2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.

3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.

4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

Looks like your battery is having a problem. Remove the battery and replace after a couple of hours. If problem remains replace the battery with another to test, if this works, then the problem is with the adapter unit. Get a new one.

Hi forum, I have been using Compaq N610c notebook and was working fine but was not power ON . on AC adapter but it was working on Battery. From last day, the battery become zero showing battery indicator...


It's possible that the AC adapter "died", and then your computer ran on battery-power until the battery went to 0%.

Or, the socket on the laptop where the AC adapter connects could have broken, or become disconnected from the motherboard, such that the power from the AC adapter was not being accepted, meaning that your computer was running on battery-power.

Take the AC adapter and the computer to a qualified technician, who can test that the AC adapter is working fine, and can disassemble the laptop, to inspect that socket where it connects.

My computer was working fine, but I lost my charger. I bought a universal charger and used it for some time. One day I plugged the computer in and the light on universal charger lit up until I plugged it...


I think that your battery is soooo flat it may be no good, take battery out, THEN connect the Correct adapter, and see if that works, if it does, then ya do need a new Batt, or perhaps a good long10-12 hour charge first, with NO use at all during that period.

We have two that went "Dead" like that too. Acer knows all about the problem of losing video. They have a BIOS update that they will send you on a flash drive. Give them a call, have your computer handy to give them numbers and in 3 o 4 days you will e up and running with your Acer One. They are a great little computer. By the way, you will not loose Windows 7 which I am using on my desktop right now. It's better than Vista.

Won't turn on


how old is the system
could be your internal plug for ac may have become lose from plugging and unplugging
or you may just need a new ac cord
try moving it around where it plugs into the laptop if you get a brief connection then it probably is the connection inside the laptop they can be replaced

RESTORE YOUR COMPUTER! This just happened to me and i looked up and tried EVERYTHING! Since my wifi button had only stopped working 2 days ago, I restored my computer to 4 days prior because I was told that sometimes without you even knowing you allow stuff to get on your computer whenever you get online which could cause your computer to turn functions off automatically. My wifi button actually stopped working after I went into a mcdonalds with my computer an used their wifi so I think me allowing their wifi onto my computer did something to it because when I took it home the button was just red altogether and it was SOOO frustrating. But as soom as I restored it, my computer came back on and a little window popped up saying "Your wifi is currently off, toggle your wifi key to turn it on/off". I was so happy! The simpliest thing that no one would ever think of.
