I have same problem. Was told that port which we plug the AC adaptor into is either cracked, loose, or broken. Apparently it is not a simple fix. Must be taken to PC repair shop where you'll be charged about $200.

Won"t power up. If I hold the power button down an icon on the lower right flashes on but nothing else happens.


Hi,

It is unfortunate that the computer is not turning on. Request you to try following the below steps which might help:
    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.
    (6)Try turning on the computer. If the computer doesn't turn on then check if the computer gives any series of beeps or if there are any diagnostics LEDs on it.

    Thanks and Regards.

Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

Netbook is dead, won't operate on AC power,is the adaptor dead?


A good chance the ac is bad, try getting another one, the battery may be bad as well, or the charging port on the computer may be bad as well.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

Ac adapter will not charge my computer


If the laptop will run from the adaptor, then the adaptor is probably fine. That being the case, if the charge light flashes when the adaptor is plugged in, the battery is faulty. No charge light on an otherwise working system is probably the battery charging circuit in the laptop.
