The dc jack is loose from the board and would need soldering back on.

XPS M1210 Laptop not powering up


No Power Issues on Laptops

There are 3 things to consider in order for you to determine a No Power Issue

1. Battery
2. Mother Board
3. AC Adapter


1. Remove the battery from the laptop

2. Disconnect all non essential cables (external hard drive, usb memory key, printer...etc.)just connect the AC Adapter

3. Take out the Battery....Usually there is a battery indicator that you can push at the back of the battery

4. By Now the battery power indicator should be full since it was never taken out

5. If still theres no light on the battery.... replace battery

6. Turn the laptop on without the battery

7. If the computer still did not turned on check the AC Adapter if there is light coming out

8. If there's no light that comes out from the AC Adapter. Reseat the cable from the AC Adapter to the Cord

9. Check if there is no light that comes out from the AC Adapter. AC adapter needs to be replaced

10. Otherwise the Mother Board needs replacing

My toshiba a60 has been acting up for the last month, and has finally stopped turning on yesterday. Every time I tried to turn the laptop on, the blue power light flicks on for one sencond, and turns off....


moz-screenshot-1.jpgFirst thing to do is to disable the option that computer automatically restarts when a fatal error/system failure occurs. There is an option inside windows for that, but in this case we can't do that. So what you need to do is to press F8 before the Windows XP logo appears right after the BIOS screen (just like what you do when you want to boot in safe mode). This screen will appear:

Toshiba Satellite A100-233 is not powering up


Welcome to Fixya.

Here are the things that you can try for troubleshooting a "No power" issue :
  • Remove all connections from the laptop (including all USB cords, ac adapter)
  • Carefully remove the battery and set it aside
  • Press and hold down on the power button for at least 10 seconds
  • Plug the AC adapter back (without the battery) and test the machine
  • If it works,then try to power it again with the battery this time
For your convenience, here's the link for Toshiba's support in case you need to contact them for warranty repair options :

How do I replace ac plug in on a toshiba laptop?


You can buy any standard "universal AC/DC adapter". They will come with several different tips to fit your laptop. I bought this one for my Toshiba Satellite series and it works well:
LINK HERE. It is available in store and online at best buy.

There is also a cheaper one available from Walmart HERE. It is from Kingston and has a 1 year warranty so it should work well and have you covered.

Let me know what area you live in and I can track one down close. I have also bought one from Ebay that was cheap and worked without a problem. Let me know and I can look one up(ebay tends to be cheapest with power adapters in the 10-35$ range.

Dell dimension 3000 stopped working no light on


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then -
The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty.
Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Hi there, I have just moved house and when I went to plug my HP 510 desktop back in there was no power. When I plug the main cord in the back the green LED flashes on and straight off again. Can anyone...


Are you sure that particular socket has power or is controlled by a wall switch? Sounds silly but I have had quite a few like that with a desktop. Take the battery out of the laptop, remove the AC adapter and push the power button in for 30 seconds to bleed off any residual power. Now plug in the AC adapter only and try to reboot.

Sony all-in-one VGC-JS 155 will not power up


Try to power on the computer with no battery inside.

If still no luck, then the AC adapter must be tested by reading voltages on the connector, no matter if light is on. This is done using a multimeter.

If the AC adapter is fine, and the laptop has no power at all , then it is usually a broken solder contact on AC socket on laptop.

All this can be tested at any local repair shop.
