My hp laptop don't turn on even the charger is


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

My ibm thinkpad from the year 2000 wont turn on. i have connected the adapter and put the battery. i press the button to turn it on but the laptop wont turn on


1st thing you need to do is to make sure the adapter is working.

check to see if any LED indicator lights up when you connect the charger.

if none of the indicators light up with the charger plugged in, you may need to consider replacing your charger/adapter.

however if the indicator come on, then it is most probably a problem with your power/on switch (at the least) or a problem with your motherboard (at the most)

Was using my Hp Pavilion dv7 laptop, suddenly turned off while the charger was plugged in. Turned back on then shut off again. Now my laptop wont even turn on, and there are no lights that even come on,...


1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

Problem: A100 flashing Amber light but won't turn


Check your charger. It seems to indicate low batery and the charger may not work or the power socket has a faulty connection. Check for phisical damage in the power socket of you laptop.
Try to twist it or even push it in a bit while trying to switch on. Try also to remove the baterry and use the charger power supply only.
If nothing happens its very likely to be the charger.

Computer will not start


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

If this did not work, try also disassembling the laptop & make sure that all main components are seated properly. Also make sure that all ribbon cables interconnecting the various components of the laptop are tightly connected.

My Dell 1501 laptop turns off as soon as the charger is connected


Sounds like you have a multiple problem going on here honestly. If you have a constant light on your charger even when its completely disconnected from the wall outlet then your charger is bad for sure, cause the light shouldn't come on unless the charger is hooked up to power.

Your battery maybe shorting out the laptop which is why it needs to be taken out for a bit before the laptop will turn on.

My suggestion would be to try a known good working charger on your laptop to make sure it turns on properly and stays on without the battery hooked up.

Then if your laptop stays on for a while then with the laptop on and the charger hooked up, connect the battery again and see if the laptop will charge up the battery to 100%. If it does then disconnect the charger and see if the laptop stays on with just the battery hooked up. It could be that the battery is drained beyond 0% and just needs a good charging. If you can't charge up the battery or the laptop still turns off to where you have to take out the battery to get the laptop to turn on then the battery is bad and would have to be replaced.
