I tried to power on my computer and there was nothing. It was plugged in and the battery light was blinking amber when I tried to press the power button. The light on the power cord is green but there is...


It sounds like the Power adapter is:

1. Not plugged into the computer
2. Not functioning
3. Has a broken connector (or the laptop has a broken power connector)

Unplug the adapter, remove the battery, hold the power button on the laptop for 30 seconds. Plug in the power adapter connector to the laptop - if the power indicator illuminates, remove the power cord, insert the battery ant then plug in the power cord. Press the power button (hopefully you're back in business).

If that does not help, p borrow an adapter from a friend and try it with your laptop, if it works, then go buy a new adapter!

Battery has gone dead. When I plug the A/C cord in the light on the charger immediately goes out and won't charge battery.


try connecting ac adapter alone without the laptop, check if ac adapter light will stay green or blue.
try another power outlet using the ac adapter alone without the laptop check if the ac adapter light will stay as green or blue. if all fails replace ac adapter.

if ac adapter stays green or blue try connecting to the laptop without the batt, check if the ac adapter light will stay on, if yes then try connecting ac adapter to laptop with the batt plugin check if the light stays green. if not update the BIOS. if fails replace motherboard.

Your motherboard is probably shorting out your A/C adapter, you may need a new motherboard. With a Dell, the A/C adapter light will be green when plugged into the wall but as soon as you plug it into the PC the green light goes off. Which means that the Motherboard is shorting out the A/C adapter...

hope this helps

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.

Laptop will not turn on


Unplug the ac adapter from the back of the computer. Make sure it's plugged to an electric outlet. check if the ac adapter light is solid green. if not. then you have to replace it.

If it is solid green, reconnect it to the computer, if the light on the adapter goes out as soon as you plug it in to the system, you need to replace the motherboard. call dell to seek your options for replacement.

My laptop keeps powering off as soon as it starts up?


Are you getting juice out of the power cord? You could use a multimeter to see that you are getting the rated power out of the brick. Sometimes it is as simple as a plug not making good contact.Find a voltmeter and test if the adapter puts out any power at all. Make sure the RAM is properly seated, unplug every peripheral (even the cd/dvdrom drive), power it up on direct electric power. Check if you can get into the BIOS (F2, or F10, or delete, or some random key depending on the manufacturer, that you press when you power up).

Most laptops have a little light showing that they are recharging when plugged in properly. Is there a green LED light? Alternatively, I had an old laptop where the brick had a removable power cord and one of the prongs in the adapter where the power cord plugged into the brick would sometimes get pushed in and fail to make contact. Once I had that plugged in properly, I never unplugged it again.

If it fails when trying to boot windows, you could always try to download and burn an ubuntu live-cd and boot from the CD to see if the problem is really your software.

DELL XPS M140 POWER ISSUE


Hi brendanram!

I am claudus_07 and i was a Dell - XPS Technical Support Specialist before so i will be glad to assist you with your concern.

As you said into your post, you tried plugging the AC Adapter to the power source without plugging the other end into the XPS laptop and the Green Light on the adapter is lit. But when you plug the jack on the laptop, the Green light is out. As for my experience on your laptop, there could be a problem with the power supply or the motherboard of your XPS laptop. Because everytime you plug the adapter to the laptop, the green light is going out so it means that the laptop or the adapter is grounded.

Here's what you need you to:

Step 1: Call Dell XPS Technical Support 1-800-624-9896
Step 2: Tell them the issue and the things that youve done.
Step 3: At the end of the troubleshooting, i know that the Technician will either replace the Power Supply, Motherboard, or the Adapter. (if you have a friend that has a Adapter same as yours, you may try to use it just to isolate the issue the Technician will choose from the Power Supply or the motherboard)
Step 4: If the Technician replaces the power supply and the issue still persists, call technical support again and ask them to replace the motherboard, no need to repeat the troubleshooting steps anymore just tell them that youre already done with it. (Dont ask for a system exchange, because i know that they will not give what you want.)

Thanks!
I know it will work. Be Positive!
Your good rating will be very much appreciated.

Good luck and thank you!
