Question about MetroBook VL Plus C-266 Notebook

1 Answer

Won't turn on.

I have a Metrobook VL laptop and it shut off earlier and now it won't turn on.

When I plug it in, it says it is fully charged. I took the battery out, says its fully charged. Try to turn it on and all the lights go out.

What should I do?

Try starting it up without the battery. Batteries can pickup a dead short which will cause a laptop not to start even though they show a full charge.

    It's possible you had a memory chip go bad, try it with no memory to see if it does the same thing, then try putting them in one at a time. (if you have 2)

Lap top is not charging


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.

My Sony Vaio PCG-61611L won't power on, the battery is fully charged and AC adapter is working (green light goes on). Please help!


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Charging indicator starts blinking when i watch movie for more than one hour on battery


A laptop won't last long without being charge, a fully charge battery should last about 1hr 30mins so charge the battery while your watching a movie next time.

Battery is fully charged, but netbook won't turn on unless plugged in.


I would say that you definitely need to purchase a new netbook battery. If it's only turning on when plugged in, then the battery itself doesn't have any more charge cycles.

Lenovo y550 laptop, battery shows fully charged, everytime i un-plug the charger,system shuts down, and won't start back up until i plug it into an outlet


Quite simply, the battery is dead. What is happening, is that the battery is charging, but the cells cannot retain the charge and it drains straight away. You need a new battery

Someone gave me a metrobook vl laptop. It looks kinda old timing and I wanted to get it upgrade. How do I do this without a diskdrive?


Hello

Ok, firstly, you need to have a hard drive in order to use your computer. An upgrade will usually be a ram module upgrade, but let me know what the specs of the computer is so that i can get a better insight on helping you.

Kind regards
