    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.

How to fix power button


Pam,

The problem is probably not the power button. If you have the AC adapter plugged in but you do not see any lights indicating that there is power reaching the laptop (such as the light that indicates that the battery is charging), chances are that you have a bad motherboard. The other possibility is that you have a broken DC power jack (where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop). Neither the motherboard nor the power jack are user-repairable issues. My advice would be to take this unit to a local professional computer repair center and have it evaluated.

Compac d-530 won't start red light under power button flashing


Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter. Try turning on your laptop and if you still only get a flashing power button then try another AC Adapter. If the same thing happens then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

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

Acer laptop shut of during power outage .


From the Acer website:

Power Issues or Will not Boot
Solution
If the notebook does not power on:

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.
Also, depending on whether your power went down "clean" (quick and stayed off), or went down and quickly came back on and off many times. Or when it came back on "clean" (came back on quick and stayed on), or it came on then off many times, your power supply may have been damaged from the power surges Are you having any problems with any other appliances?

Advent laptop 7079 suddenly has no power, power adapter light is on


Is there a power indicator light on the laptop? If so , is it on when the adapter's light is on and plugged into the laptop? If not, try gently moving the computer end of the plug on the adapter while it's all plugged in. If the power indicator on the laptop flashes briefly or comes on you have an issue with a loose power connection in the laptop and need to have it serviced . this is a very common issue with laptops that are frequently plugged in and unplugged as the motion promoted lose plugs and solder.
also the laptop could be in hibernate mode and holding the power button on the laptop down for about 7 seconds should wake it.
If still no power i would suspect the power supply and aagain i would take it and have it serviced at this point.. ALWAYS CHECK THE WARRANTEE BEFORE YOU SERVICE SOMETHING YOURSELF
Post again here if i can assist you further
Please rate if this solves your issue

Have an MT6451. When I press the power button it will not turn on but the battery indicator light in front of the laptop flashes red every time I press the power button. I should also tell you that it did...


Gateway MT6451 laptop. That was easy but the rest is a guess without more details. It sounds like this computer is not plugged into an outlet or is not getting power from that outlet, and that the battery is dead low. Try plugging something else, like a lamp, into the very same outlet that the laptop is plugged into to make sure it turns on. Not the next plug over on a power strip, but the very same plug. If it doesn't get power either, there's hope. Except that your battery needs a good recharge after the laptop starts getting power.
If the outlet turned out to be good, then the power adapter on your laptop may have failed. At this point you'll need try another power adapter and try again. At this point you may need the help of people who can look at the computer for you, preferably friends with a similiar laptop (and power adapter).
I wish I could help more, but thats a start.

HELP! NO POWER !!!


Most common reason for this would be defective power supply, if it is less than 1 year old, may still be under warranty. If older then you can usually find replacement power supply $40+ at local computer store. Not to difficult to replace, average tech could swap it in less than 15 minutes. Can test it with one of these: http://www.antec.com/Detail.bok?no=429
