    OK, this is rough on you but not uncommon, it usually means your power supply is getting weak.

    Disconnect A/C power, remove your battery and leave these unattached and removed for several hours. Then insert your battery, attach A/C power and you should now be fine.

    If not, let me know. I'll get back to you tomorrow. I'm about to fall asleep right now.

My laptop is not switch on even i plugged in....


I was using my laptop just a few hours ago browsing Facebook, when my laptop just completely shut off instantly, and then wouldn't turn back on... the laptop was plugged in at the time.

The laptop shows no lights or anything indicating the laptop it plugged in like usual, and nothing at all happens when I press the power button.

I have tried plugging the laptop out, taking the battery out and holding the power button for 1 minute and plugging back in with no luck.

Also I should add that for about 2 months now ever since I installed Windows 7 I have been getting the message "Consider replacing your battery" and the battery hasn't been holding much of a charge, maybe 25-30 mins. But I don't know if this is the problem because shouldn't the laptop work as normal when plugged in?

Cannot turn on my laptop only the start button light turns on but no screen display and a few noises help


This is only the first of many things you may need to do to determine the fault. But it is a process for determining the exact cause.


Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.


If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a 'power reset' of the notebook.

  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

Hi, my Fujitsu A1220 won't start up at all. I took out the battery to reset the laptop but when I put the battery back on or connect it via AC, it still won't start up. I see the Scroll Lock is brinking...


Here are some ideas to try.

1. Plug battery in and see by looking at the charging light if it's charging. The light should stay mostly constant during this process. If it is charging, then wait about 20 minutes. Unplug laptop and attempt to turn on with just the battery installed. If the laptop turns on, then you can be sure you have a bad AC adapter or a bad DC jack.

Uninstall the battery before attempting the next five steps.
2. Look for the light on the laptop that indicates that the AC adapter is plugged in. If that light isn't on, try plugging and unplugging the AC power jack and moving it around until the light shows its connected. If no light comes on, then it's possible you have a bad DC jack or the AC adapter needs to be replaced.

3. Try a different outlet. (I know it's obvious but it's worth a try).

4. If the indicator light is on and the laptop won't power on, then it's possible you have a bad switch board or stuck button. Make sure no buttons are stuck. Conversely, push hard on the power button and move it around in order to make sure you're making good contact.

5. If your laptop has another button that turns it on, such as an internet button, try that button instead of the normal power button.

6. Replace the AC adapter. Find and buy a compatible AC adapter online. You can usually find them reasonably cheap.

7. Replace the switch board and/or the flex flat cable that runs from the switch board to the mainboard. (This requires some technical know-how).

Hope one of these ideas helps.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Power problem


Here are some ideas you can try when troubleshooting power issues with a laptop:

1. Plug the laptop into AC power.

2. Take out the battery.

3. Try a different outlet.

4. Look for the light that indicates that the AC adapter is plugged in. If that light isn't on, try plugging and unplugging the AC power jack and moving it around until the light shows its connected. If no light comes on, its possible you have a bad DC jack or the AC adapter needs to be replaced.

5. If the indicator light is on and the laptop won't power on, then it's possible you have a bad switch board or stuck button. Make sure no buttons are stuck. Conversely, push hard on the power button and move it around in order to make sure you're making good contact.

6. If you know the battery has a charge, unplug the AC adapter and connect the battery. If it turns on then you can be sure you have a bad DC jack or a bad AC adapter.

7. Replace the switch board and/or the flex flat cable that runs from the switch board to the mainboard.

8. If your laptop has another button that turns it on, such as an internet button, try that button instead of the normal power button.

Gateway M-6862 laptop will not turn on; battery light flashing re


Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.


Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.

Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "

Toshiba Satellite Laptop Power Failure (A105-S1013 System Unit)


How handy are you with a digital multimeter? If the laptop is still disassembled, find the solder connections on the motherboard where the mini power cable enters the board from the jack. Plug the AC adapter in. Check to make sure you have the proper DC voltage at those points (should be about 19V, although the AC adapter should say what it's DC output is).

If you don't get any DC voltage (or too low), check the DC plug of the AC adapter. The inside of the plug should be + and the outside should be -. If you are getting voltage there, but not the motherboard, chances are it's the jack or the mini power cable on the motherboard. These can be replaced, it just depends on how confident you are about doing it yourself :).
