Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

It won't turn on,

I needed to quickly turn my laptop off, so I took out the battery, and put it back in. It won't turn on, with or without the AC adaptor. I've also tried blowing where the AC adaptor goes, and the battery. The battery does have a slightly shorter life span.

I have a HP laptop that won't power up. I put in a new battery, and bought a new AC adapter. Now lights nothing. It was running than just quick and I haven't been able to get it to come back o


Hi There,
If you've got a multimeter - test your AC adapter to see if it is outputting the correct voltage for your laptop. If it is, Then you've got an HP boat anchor. Unfortunately HP laptops are known for their overheating issues, and if this is the case, a lawsuit filed against said manufacturer means you may be able to be compensated for your loss.

Toshiba A200 1vo. works on battery but freezes when ac adaptor is inserted then has to be turned off manually-no keys function at all except on/off button.Won't start upon ac adaptor either although...


You say you bought a new adapter--was is a Toshiba adapter? Was it a "generic" one?
You have to be careful, because some adapters have different polarity and could damage the computer.

If you are sure the adapter is OK and is putting out the correct voltage (~18 v.) then disconnect the battery and try running the computer without the battery just using the adapter.

I don't think this is a BIOS problem. The operating system should not affect the function of the adapter.Most likely you have a motherboard problem if all else is working.

Battery was running out on my Acer mini book, hibernated and turned of, tried to turn it on nothing happened., used ac adaptor....still nothing


take battery out, unplug ac adapter. Wait one minute. leave battery out. Plug in ac adapter and turn on laptop. Once it turns back on. Shut down laptop and put battery back in. Now you should be able to turn laptop on with or without battery.

Hp zd8000 wont turn on...


hi thanks for using fixya!!

Try first to remove the battery and connect the AC adapter to your laptop, you will use the power supply directly from the AC adapter without the battery. Turn on your laptop, then if its working normally as it should be,

Then try now to install back the battery then connect the AC adapter, turn it on. If still does not work, perhaps you have a problem with the battery.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

very first thing u have do is if u have any other laptop try and connect the aac adaptor with that laptop and also try the battery if it is working with the other laptop that means the motherboard of the computer has gone bad u need to replace it and what also u can try is disconnect the ac adaptor and take out the battery from the laptop and the without ac adaptor and the battery press and hold down the power button for one minute and then connect the ac adaptor and put the battery back in and then try and turn on the computer and also what u can do is shut down the computer first and then just hit the power butoon once only to turn it on and then keep tapping f8 key on the keyboard and it will take u to windows advance options and select safe mode with networking and then try if it turns on to the windows screen or not......and if it doesnt turn ono then definately replace the motherboard...good luck....

Laptop won't turn on


The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.
