Emachines M2350 laptop- no power

For the past week or two, when I use my laptop (plugged into the wall), I get a "critical battery" message. Usually, the message goes away in a minute or so and I can continue.... I didn't worry, because I hardly ever use battery power (always plugged into the wall). However, the computer is now shutting off approx. 1 minute after the message is displayed. Now, the computer won't even turn on at all. I suspect it is a power supply issue, but I just wanted to confirm before I make the purchase. Advice? Thanks in advance!

If your AC adapter can no longer power your battery because the power connector is loose or damaged, this part is vital to keep your laptop or notebook running.
The jack can be bought here for $5.98

eMachines is known to use both 1.65mm and 2.5mm center pin sizes, personal verification must be done in order to get the correct part. The 2.5mm pin size is the most common size used, please see PJ013 for the 1.65mm size.
If it also needs a new battery, the cheapest I've found is $69.00 found here

If it also needs a new DC adaptor, look for it here (make sure you get the correct wattage)

It's one of two issues. 1 - power supply. 2 - the power management chip on the motherboard. Since the power supply is the lesser of the two, try a new supply first. If that doesn't do the trick then it's the pm chip and the motherboard will need to be replaced.
*NOTE* The power management chip recognizes the type of power being used and allows the computer to switch between AC and battery power, it also allows the unit to charge the battery.

Emachines charging


I've gone through exactly what your're going through right now.
I'm sorry to say but your battery is dead, you need to get it replaced. It can be replaced under warranty, if you have it.

To avoid this kind of a problem in future take care that you:
1. Don't let the battery drain out after your PC warns about low battery.
2. Try to maintain it's charge when you are not using it for days. The self discharge of the battery may take it below the critical level even when you're not using it. So keep charging it even when you're not using it.
3. Preferably use your laptop on external power supply (keep it on charging while using it whenever possible), charging it even when the battery is full doesn't hurt.
4. Let it have a charging and discharging cycle at least once in two weeks.

The above steps will help you maintain a good health of your battery and avoid the problem you're in currently.

Battery won't hold charge


It most likely needs a new battery, but you could try giving the battery a full charge first:

1. Power off the laptop and disconnect the power adapter.
2. Re-seat the battery (remove/reinsert)
3. Reconnect the power adapter and let it charge overnight. (6 hr+)
4. Disconnect the power adapter.
5. Power on the laptop (run under battery power only)

If it doesn't boot up and shuts down immediately, it's probably time to see about a replacement battery.

Inside I smell something burning and my power port is loose.


Your Notebook PC needs a new power supply or at least a new power port, or it may self-destruct really soon (like tonight). Unplug your PC and quickly backup your important data to a flash drive.

I wouldn't plug anything into the power port until it gets service, and unplug it overnight (or there could be a fire).

The owners' manual doesn't describe power supply replacement:

Hi,

This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge.
Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.




Regards.

Won't start - battery critically low


You should have a light on the notebook indicating that the power supply is plugged in (this should come on with or without the laptop being turned on). My acer has a green light for power, and the battery indicator shows amber for charging and green for full. If you are not seeing the power or charging indicators, you either have a damaged power jack, or a damaged power supply. Power supplies can be purchased usually for fairly cheap online, but if your power jack is damaged, the laptop will have to be serviced by a service center, or by someone who is skilled with a soldering iron and the disassembly and reassembly of laptops.

Battery is low / critical please switch to power


ok, how old is your laptop battery?, if it is over 2or 3 years and you always have it connected to your laptop while the power adapter is plugged to the wall when you use it, it must be time to replace it.
While on the other hand, if you have Windows XP Service Pack 2, then there's an issue problem between the Operative system and the battery itself. Here's a hotfix posted on the Microsoft's website and you should only use it if the problem meets this description http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938961 . Good luck.

Key broken on laptop


Well, you can either replace the keys with replacement key kits or replace the keyboard, I would suggest the keyboard as a more permanent fix. Here is a link to google product search of "emachines m2350 keyboard" lowest price on top. Should run you $10 to $15 and up.
