A replacement battery must be the EXACT same power spec as the original in DC volts and Milliamps, or you could damage the Mobo components. Some aftermarket batteries do not work well. The connections may be different.

There can be many things associated with no power to the computer.
  • The outlet into which the computer is plugged may be inoperative.

  • The surge protector you are using may be inoperative.

  • The power cable may be loose or damaged.

  • An internal device may be damaged.

  • The power supply may be inoperative.

Basic Troubleshooting Power to the Computer
There may not be a consistent flow of power to the computer.
  1. Verify that the outlet into which you are plugging the computer is operational.

  2. If you have the computer plugged into a surge protector, plug it directly into the outlet.

  3. Verify that the power cable is plugged securely into the back of the computer.

  4. If you have a monitor with a removable power cord, swap the power cords between the monitor and the computer.

Note: If you recently added a new hardware device prior to experiencing the no power issue, turn off the computer and remove the newly added hardware. If there is still no power, reseat all the other cards and cables in the computer to verify that all other devices are seated securely.
Resolving Power Supply Issues
  • External Device Conflicts
  • There may be an external device causing the computer not to turn on properly.

    1. Before continuing, verify your computer is turned off.

    2. After you have established that adequate electricity is going to your computer, verify that the voltage switch on the back of the power supply is set correctly. The small red switch is to be set to the 115-volt setting.

    3. Remove all external devices except the monitor and turn on the computer. If the fan on the back of the computer now spins, turn off the computer. Plug in the external devices one at a time and turn on the computer after each device is added.

    4. Note: If you removed all external components and the fan on the back of the computer does not spin, the problem is with something inside the computer.

  • Internal Device Conflicts
  • This helps determine if the issue is a damaged or badly seated component.

    1. Verify that the computer is turned off.

    2. Remove the case from the computer.

    3. Remove all the red, yellow, and black power connectors from each floppy disk drive, CD-ROM drive, and tape backup unit that is in the computer. The only devices connected to the power supply are your hard disk drive and motherboard.

    4. Turn on the computer and verify that the fan on the back of the computer spins. If it does not spin, turn off the computer.

    5. Remove the power connection from the hard disk drive and reconnect power to one floppy disk drive. Turn on the computer and verify that the fan on the back of the computer spins.

    6. Reseat the power connection from the power supply to the motherboard. Turn on the computer and verify that the fan on the back of the computer spins. If the power has been restored, turn off the computer and reconnect the power connections to the devices. Test the computer for power after reconnecting each device.

  • Power Switch
  • The power switch may not be functioning properly.

    1. You may need to open the case and readjust the power switch.

    2. Locate the control panel inside the computer and remove any screws holding it in place.

    3. Turn on the computer with the control panel removed by pressing the button on the control panel that corresponds to the power button. If the power supply fan spins and/or the computer turns on, put the control panel back in its place. Try to turn on the computer again.

  • Test Switch and Diagnostic LED
  • Note: Not all power supplies have a test switch and diagnostic LED.
    Certain power supplies have a test switch and LED to help better troubleshoot the device. The green LED is always on when the computer is powered on. If the computer is not receiving power please perform the diagnostic test below.

    1. Verify that the computer is turned off.
    2. Remove the case from the computer.
    3. Remove all of the red, yellow, and black power connectors from each floppy disk drive and ROM drive and the tape backup unit (TBU) that is in the computer. Remove all power connectors from the motherboard. The only device that needs to be connected to the power supply is the hard disk drive.
    4. Press and hold the test switch for five seconds on the power supply, and then verify that the green light on the power supply comes on.
    5. If the light comes on:
      1. The power supply is good and something that was plugged into the power supply is causing the computer to not turn on.
      2. Plug devices in one at a time, testing with the test switch between each device to determine what is causing the power issue.
      3. If all devices are plugged in and the light is working, the connections may have needed to be reseated, or it is possibly a power switch issue.
      4. Go to the power switch section of the power supply checklist for additional troubleshooting steps.

    6. If the light does not come on:
      1. Disconnect the power from the hard disk drive, and then plug in power to the CD-ROM drive and determine whether the light comes on.
      2. If it does, follow the preceding information - "If the light comes on."
      3. If the light still does not come on, contact Gateway Technical Support.

    7. Confirm that power from the power supply is connected to the motherboard. Remove all cards and cables from the motherboard, and press and hold the test switch for five seconds on the power supply and determine whether the green light-emitting diode (LED) comes on.
    8. If the LED comes on, put the devices back in one at a time, testing between each device to determine what is causing the issue.

My computer wont boot up the fan and light turn on for a second then goes right off....


With the little bit of information presented, it appears that this is possible a power supply problem. One thing you can try is to unplug the power adapter from the laptop, remove the battery, then plug the power adapter back into the laptop. Then try to turn it on. If everything comes up normally, then the problem points, potentially, to the battery.
Hope this helps!

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 that won't start. The battery light would flash orange 4 times then blue once, and then start over with the same sequence. Pulled the power board and fixed the solder joints on...


This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.

Compaq F572US won't start (led turns on, but nothing happens)


I have been having the same problem. At first I thought that the motherboard was fried and the laptop was a paper weight, but I kept it plugged in and kept pressing the power button several times over the days. It would always seem to start (screen remained off/black) and then it would just go off again in seconds. But persevarence has paid off, finally almost after a week it started up like normal and started working again as normal. I then had the same episode repeat a few weeks later, the computer was useless for a few days and again started up as I kept pressing the power button several times a day.

I believe the problem is with the standby mode. Each time the problem happened, it seems like the computer was going into standby mode and the power button was pressed again before it could competely go into standby or the button was pressed again while it was coming out of standby.

To sum it up, nothing is wrong with the cimputer components, there is some problem with the standby routine. Keep pressing the power button and hopefully you can get lucky in getting the computer to start again. Long term, I am thinking about checking whether there was a new flash update that came out that could fix this problem. I purchased the laptop compaq F72US in 2008 and never updated anything. Also worth noting that I called HP and they didn't stand behind their product.

Toshiba satellite A210 11-P crashes when i disconnect the power lead


From Toshiba, try step-charging the battery or Battery conditioning procedures:

Batteries don't last forever. All types of batteries gradually lose their ability to hold an electrical charge as they age. Eventually, the computer's battery charge indicator may show that the battery contains less than a full charge, even though the battery has just been fully charged. The computer will then not run for as long a time from the battery as when the battery was brand new.
You may prefer to simply replace the battery if this happens, but you may also wish to try 'step-charging' the existing battery per the following instructions.
This procedure should work for the battery in any Toshiba notebook. Follow it only when you find that the computer will run from the battery for just a short while.
Check the User's Guide for more specific information about charging the battery in your computer .

Procedure

Step-charging the computer's battery

  1. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer, and turn ithe computer on. Let the computer run from battery power until the computer turns off, indicating that the battery is fully discharged. Time this interval, but not with a software clock running on the same computer.

  2. Remove the battery pack from the computer.

  3. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  4. Wait at least 30 seconds. The first time through this procedure, use a soft cloth to wipe the battery pack's contacts and the AC adapter's plug.

  5. Re-insert the battery pack.

  6. Plug into the AC adapter into the computer again and check the fit of its plug in the wall outlet, making sure the connection is secure.

  7. With the computer turned off, let the battery charge until the battery status light or icon glows green, or otherwise indicates a full charge.

  8. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  9. Remove the battery.

  10. Wait at least 30 seconds, then re-insert the battery.

  11. Plug the AC adapter back into the computer.

  12. Let the battery charge again until the battery status light turns green or otherwise indicates a full charge, again.
Repeat this procedure, starting from step 1, at least three times. Each time, check to see if the computer runs longer from its battery than the previous time.

Battery Conditioning:
IMPORTANT!!
Interruptions in the charging cycle can be responsible for an issue called "memory effect" which may reduce the battery's charging capacity. Whenever you suspect the battery performance is not at it's optimum you should try using the following "Battery Conditioning" procedure.

Before you start: Turn off your battery saving features temporarily.

***IMPORTANT*** Repeat the following steps 2-3 times!

  1. Unplug the power cord from the computer
  2. Turn the computer on and let it run until it shuts itself off.
    Note: Using the CD-ROM to play an Audio CD will speed the discharge.
  3. Plug in the power cord (While the system is off) charge the battery until the battery light changes from flashing green to solid green
  4. Remove the battery for 30 seconds and then replace it.
    Note: If the battery light isn't lit, wait a few moments, if it still does not light check your power connections.
  5. Continue charging the battery until the battery light turns solid green once again.
    **REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE 3 TIMES**

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
