No fuse. This is going to be with the power management system or the jack. Check the jack to see if it's loose or broken. If not, then the problem is with the power management chip, and the motherboard will have to be replaced. I've had a few of these machines with that problem, and have found boards on Ebay at a decent price.

Is there a power input fuse on a Toshiba Satellite C655D?


no, there is no internal fuse, unfortunately- because this sounds like a dead motherboard. the aftermarket power supply could have been over-volting, or delivering unsteady power- burning the motherboard.

OR the old power supply shorted, and blew the motherboard's power circuitry, and you were just running off battery power when you first got the replacement.

please keep in mind that, at times, the physical power input jack on laptops can also break, or come loose from the motherboard.

Get someone to check the power supply with a multimeter and/or a different unit - worthwhile checking also that the mains cable and any fuse is also working by swapping them out.

If these are working fine there is a chance your battery is faulty or the connector has ether broken or the connection to the circuit board has broken, in either case a qualified service technician should be used rather than breaking the unit open yourself, you are likely to do more damage than good and may well place yourself or others in danger.

sounds like the situation is with the AC adapter detection. try to restore your BIOS defaults and update BIOS if applicable. Test another AC adapter. If that fails, most likely, this is with the motherboard. You may either get a new board, or just continue to charge it using the docking station.

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.

With the replacement screen did you replace the inverter board? Many laptop screens also have a very small fuse built into their power connecttions. Check this also.

Power issues on HP DV1000


It is possible you have two dud batteries. Recharageable batteries have a limited life, they have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles.
With the battery removed and only the power supply connected and the laptop powered up, when you touch the connector on the laptop and the laptop does not shut down then the laptop connector is OK.

If you can verify your new battery is OK the the fault could be the power supply adapter, if may not produce enought current to run and charge the battery. Try charging the battery overnight by turning off the laptop and leaving on the mains t charge. Borrow a mains adapter and test it on your computer.

You can also check the BIOS setting for power management, ie. hibernate, low power shut down etc.

LAPTOP /no power


It states you are not getting no power on your lap top computer :

No power or computer does not turn on Cause: No power from the computer can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
  1. Connections not connected properly.
  2. Third-party hardware.
  3. Bad power cable.
  4. Incorrect power supply.
  5. Bad battery.
  6. Bad power supply, power button, and/or power board or inverter.
Solution: Note: If the computer is turning on but is not posting (beeping) or giving any type of picture on the display, please see document CH000607. If you are uncertain if the computer is turning on or not, this can be easily checked by locating any fans in the computer or visible from the outside of the computer. If these fans are spinning, the computer is receiving power and this document may not apply to your issue. Connections not connected properly Verify that the power connection is connected properly to the wall and the back of the computer. If the connections appear to be connected properly, attempt to disconnect and reconnection both ends of the cable. If you have a power strip (surge protector) or switch used to turn everything on at once, temporarily disconnect the computer from that switch and connect that cable directly to the wall. This will help verify that the strip or switch is not bad. Verify that the outlet works by connecting a different component to that switch.
Third-party hardware If additional hardware has been recently added to the computer it is recommend that you temporarily disconnect that device or devices from the computer to verify they are not preventing your computer from turning on. Note: If the computer was working fine before you added the new hardware, removing the third-party hardware did not resolve the issue, and the computer is not beeping but is turning on, please see our POST troubleshooting document CH000607.
Bad Power cable Verify that the cable supplying your computer is not bad or damaged by using another power cable. If you have a standard CRT monitor, this cable can be used in place of the computer power cable. If you have a portable computer or laptop, when the cables are plugged into the laptop you should see a power light or battery charge light. If this light is seen, this is a good indication that the power cable is good.
Incorrect power supply If you are building your own computer or if the computer has never turned on since you purchased it, it is possible you are using a power supply that does not supply enough power and/or the incorrect type of power supply. Verify your power supply meets the requirements of your motherboard and processor.
Bad battery If your computer is a laptop or portable computer that utilizes a battery for mobility it is possible that the battery may be causing your issue.
  • If your computer powers on when the cable is connected to the portable computer but not when it is disconnected, we recommend you purchase a new battery.
  • If your computer does not power on when the battery is connected and when the power cable / charger cable is connected, try removing the battery and seeing if the computer can power on with only the power cable connected. If no power is still received, skip to the final section.
Bad Power Supply, power button, and/or power board or inverter If, after following the above sections, your computer still receives no power, it is likely that a hardware component in the computer has failed. It is most likely that the power supply has failed. If you do not plan on replacing the power supply yourself or if you have a portable computer, we recommend having the computer serviced by your computer manufacturer or a local computer repair shop. If you have a desktop computer and plan on trying to repair the computer yourself, we recommend you replace the components in your computer in the below order.
  1. First open the computer and verify the power connections. You may also wish to consider disconnecting the main power cable and reconnecting the power cable to make sure it has not become loose. Also verify the power button cable is correctly connected to the Motherboard.
  2. Replace the power supply with a new power supply.
  3. Replace the motherboard.
