    It does not start if I remove the battery and plug in the charger. Maybe it's a bad adapter? HP will send a new one to see if that's the problem. I'll keep you updated.

    Thanks!

Will a laptop battery become damaged if you use the computer while it is plugged in? I do a lot of photo editing, and leave the computer plugged in for long periods of time, so that it doesn't di


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
Laptop batteries vary from laptop to laptop. i suggest you Google the Internet for a battery for your model laptop.

My Asus Eee PC 1001PXD battery won't charge. The charges light is on but nothing happens and now the battery is completely dead and I cannot get my notebook on


Your problem is far more than the battery. Your problem is the power cord. Laptops for the most part will work off the power cord even if the battery is dead or even if the battery is not in the laptop. Your power cord charges your battery and if it is bad it will not charge it. You've been working off your battery even though you might have had the power cord plugged in, but if it's bad and not charging the battery, the battery drains and then you can't get the laptop to power on at all. Go purchase a ac adapter and power cord that is designed for your system. Don't buy one that some of the big box stores sell that has a an interchangeable plug at the end designed to fit just about any laptop. Those will eventually burn *********** board out.

Battery wont charge on a dell anspion1525


Will the laptop power on with the AC Adapter and Power Cord plugged in? If so, the battery is probably dead and won't hold a charge. Batteries don't last forever.

My laptop won't turn on, and the charger doesn't seem to be doing anything. even when plugged in, it won't start. ideas?


You've to replace the ac adapter, if it's brick doesn't get warm or LED does not glow on Power Jack on the laptop. offcourse, check with the wall different sockets

power jack can also be loose. so jiggle the cable to find out.

if notebook is getting power, you can remove the battery, ac adapter, hold and keeep pressing poer button for a minute, then, turn it on.

finally, you can take out hdd and ram, put them back again and turn on the laptop. hope it will help

Unfortunately it sounds like you have an issue with your motherboard. If you remove the battery and just try to power on the laptop using the AC adapter and it still won't power on then it's probably the motherboard. The power supply circuit (where the AC adapter plugs into) for the motherboard is integrated into the motherboard.
Sorry. If it's still under warranty Dell will replace the motherboard.

My stepnote laptop will not power up, I don't know if it is my power cord or the battery. Where can I buy a new power cord and/or battery? How can I tell which one is the problem.


hi,
what you should do is try using your cord on a similar laptop and observe if it will work or not. if it works you might be looking at changing your battery. i must state thought that i really don't think it's the battery. this is because laptop batteries tend to survive over a long period of time and the worst state of the battery is when you have to connect to a power source before using the laptop, when the battery no longer retains power. some though tend to just give up along the way and in a very short period of usage, these off course are not genuine batteries. so run the test above, it might be your adapter and not the battery.
hope this helps

I guess it depends on why your power jack was dameged at first.
If the old power jack was replaced after any electric accidents, this current problem can be caused by your damaged motherboard.
(After shock, the motherboard can still perform ok for a while. I've seen it.)

Or sometimes, rarely the battery can cause it. I don't know why but, that's what I've heard from laptop manufactuers.
To find out, please, take out the battery and plug in AC power adapter and try it again.

I hope it helps you.

Hi there,
Does the laptop indicate any power? does the LED turn on and stay on but you can't see anything on the screen? Is there no power at all, No LED light turns on and everything is switched off?
Since you bought it April 2011 it's only been a month so there should still be warranty for your laptop. If you are comfortable enough try removing the memory sticks, the hard drive, the WLAN card the battery and try to plug it in the power outlet without those and check if it will turn on. Otherwise find your receipt and bring it back to the store "SM" where you bought it and have it checked by one of their technicians or possibly get it replaced.
Hope you find this helpful.
BTW: I'm also from the Philippines.
