Does your laptop go on just plugged in? If not it could be the power jack has broken inside. Cheap part, but VERY expensive to repair unless you do it yourself. A repair shop will charge around 300.00 or more for the repair.

Read this, and it will give a example of how to do it.

My toshiba satellite series a135-s4656 laptop stopped charging for over two weeks now. Though the adapter (power pack) is functional. Please what do i do (cos the system has been down since)?


How do you know the ac adapter is working? Just because the light on the ac adapter is on doesn't mean it's working. Does it work with the ac adapter plugged in? Just not charging the battery. If in the first case just buy a new ac adapter and see if it works, most are affordable some not so much. If the battery isn't charging then you will have to shop for a new battery. If both of those are good then you have either a bad ac plug on your laptop, or motherboard issues. Hope this helps, if you have more questions just reply and I will try to help.

If you replaced the AC adapter, then the issue is the Power board on the system Depending one the model, it may be part of the motherboard or a seperate part

COMPAQ V2000 BATTERY NOT CHARGING


Try to isolate the problem first. See whether it's a laptop issue or an adapter issue. If the adapter has a light, see if the light is coming on when you connect it. Also see if the laptop works if you remove the batteries and connect the adapter.
There could be several issues here:
1. Your adapter's light may be coming on, but it still might not be delivering power to the pin. If you have a multimeter, connect it to the terminals of the charger and see if you get a voltage reading; if not, there may be a problem with the cable running from the adapter to the laptop or the adapter itself may not be giving the right voltage.
2. The second possibility is that the adapter is OK, but the laptop's power connector is faulty. This will require a technician to remove the old connector and solder a new one into place.
3. If both the adapter and the connector are fine, then the problem is most likely with your charging circuit, which is inside the laptop. This circuit powers the laptop through the batteries, and will once again have to be inspected by a qualified technician.
Hope this helps

I have Samsung NP-R505H laptop. My laptop won't


You say it isn't charging, but will it run off of AC power? If it isn't getting *ANY* AC power, then it might be the female end of the power jack on the laptop. If it will run on AC, the culprit is likely to be a battery that needs replaced.

Laptop will not power up. Hp sent a new wall adapter but will not power up....pulled battery and plugged in and still nothing.


By what you have posted it seems as if your computer won't power on at all even when the cord is plugged in. You also tried it with a new power cord. If that didn't solve the issue then your motherboard has gone bad. I'm guessing your computer is still under warranty since they sent you a new AC adapter. Tell them that the motherboard needs to be replaced and send it out to them.

Power plug socket on notebook has failed.


You will have to have a new d/c jack installed on the motherboard. Not a big job, but you might want to have a techie friend do it for you, as it will require some soldering.

Doesnt charge


This could most probably be a battery issue. To check if it is really a battery issue, remove the battery and plug in the AC adapter. If the computer powers up, then this is definitely a battery issue and you'll need to purchase a new battery or call your computer's manufacturer and ask them if they have battery exchange programs.

Power issue


Is the new power supply a Dell. Some aftermarket power supplies, especially Targus, will not charge the battery in a Dell. If it is a Dell supply, then it's one of two things. 1- the battery is shot and needs replacing. 2- the power management chip on the motherboard is shot and the motherboard needs replacing. If the battery light is flashing orange then the battery is shot. If the battery light is green, then go into the power settings and see if the machine shows that it is charging. If it doesn't show that it's charging then it's the pm chip.
