You need to replace the ac power cord of your laptop. IF replacing the power cord wont fix the problem. sadly you need to send your laptop to repair center for main board replacement.

My mac air book lap top is not opening how to solve


What is not working? Your question is somewhat vague. Dose it start without the battery installed and plugged into the power adaptor? It could be the laptop was put away without being totally shut off. The battery eventually crapped out and now you need a new battery. A totally discharged battery will take a minimum of 6 hours to charge. Try pluging in the laptop to the power adaptor and let it set overnight.

I get a pop up note that the power supply in insufficent, and then the computer shuts off. Other times it works fine.


The message you are getting is telling you the battery is discharged, UNLESS you are plugged into the mains, in that case, the battery is not charging and the adaptor is not supplyig power to the laptop.
You may have a faulty charging circuit, a loose connection from the DC jack to the DC socket on the laptop, or a failing adaptor.

Check the above and repost if not solved

I have a HP dv7 laptop it does not work with the ac adapter but worked with the battery, whenever it is working with the battery and the ac adapter is connected it shuts down.


Remove the battery and plug the ac adaptor in check wethere the light on the port where you connect the ac adaptor glows or not, if no then check the wethere the ac adaptor is getting warm or not after you plug it in for few minutes if not then ac adaptor has to be replaced.
If the light on the port is glowing then it is likely that the power supply of the notebook has gone bad as it is not able to switch to ac adaptor or the port where you connect the ac adaptor to the notebook has a short circut when the acadaptor pin is connected , better try with a different ac adaptor to be sure wethere the issue is with ac adaptor or the notebook.
My best wishes

Will not work with ac power adaptor but does with


Did you wiggle it a bit when plugged in? You can't tell from looking on the outside if the plug is fine because it goes bad inside where it is soldered. This is a very common problem, and have fixed many laptops with the same problem. All of them had a bad solder connection inside. Did you dtermine the plug was fine by plugging another ac adapter to your laptop or you just checked it visually? Hit me up I will solve this one for you.

try to remove the battery first and plug in the ac power adaptor and see if it works. if yes, then your battery is faulty.

if it doesn't work i suspected that there's a problem with the power socket from your machine. you can check it with the nearest service center near you.

Toshiba satellite m35 power issues


Hi !
While power off, disconnect the power adaptor.
Take off battery.

Plug the power adaptor back and try to start !
Is it running?

If yes, than the power adaptor is OK.

Now shut down and disconnect the power adaptor.
Put back your battery and start!
Leave it untill you 'empty' the battery.
Do not start your laptop.

Plug the power adaptor and do not start your laptop yet.
Is there a led idicator showing that the battery is charging ?
Does it shows when the battery is full charged (e.g. red/yellow=charging, to green/off charged)?
If not, leave it for at least 3 hours. After that, start your laptop (adaptor is plugged) and see if you still have an icon saying charging 99%.

If that is the case, then something is wrong with the battery.

Check your warranty, and replace it.
DO NOT OPEN the battery - nothing interesting you will find inside - nothing you can do !

Regards.

Try taking the laptop battery out. You can remove the laptop battery by turning it over, you'll usually see some sliders at the bottom, slide them to the unlock position and you should be able to wedge your battery out. The battery usually comes in a very tall and thin rectangular shape. Once the battery is out, plug the laptop in through the mains power - this may solve your problem, if it does, you'll need a new battery if you wish to use it on the move. If it does not solve your problem, it is either a faulty power adaptor, or a faulty power supply on the motherboard of your laptop. A faulty power adaptor or battery is the best case scenario, as it's the cheapest to buy a replacement (although it's still expensive - $120 worth in the UK roughly). A faulty power supply on the mainboard generally means you'll need a replacement mainboard which is totally uneconomical, especially with the labour cost to fit it professionally. If the battery and power adaptor is not faulty, you might as well scrap it and get a new laptop. Good luck Tina!

No power


Measuring the voltage outputs without applying a load doesn?t eliminate the adaptor as the problem. You also have to know how may amps it can supply as well. To answer you specific question common problems are defective battery, A/C power supply and my favorite?s defective power connector or circuitry inside. When you plug in the A/C power adaptor do any of the LEDs light, up? Does anything happen? Also try removing the battery, plugging in the A/C adaptor and try powering up. If this doesn?t work please supply answers to the above questions plus any other pertinent information you may have. As always please don?t forget to rate the posting but please wait till after we?ve finished.
