Check the power supply with an ohm meter to see if it's getting the proper output to the machine. Just because the light on the supply is working, doesn't mean that it's putting out the power to run the machine. If the output checks good, then remove the battery and try starting. Dell batteries are notorious for causing a no start. If the problem persists, then you have a failed component on the motherboard, most likely the power management system. This will need to be diagnosed by a professional, in order to track down the exact problem component and fixed.

Where is the fuse located at on acer computer


There is none.

If it is a Desktop Computer (case) you will need a new power supply or a different one to test if that is really the problem.

on a laptop, try holding the power button for ~40secs with all power diconnected (no battery and no powercord).
then re-plug the powercord to see if it will turn on. Try a different powercord if it still wont turn on, or have it tested at an electronics store.

Probook4530s not recharging. powercord or recharging device problem


Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Hello.

Return your power adapter to Walmart and replace. I'd suggest taking the laptop with you to further test in the store with the adapter you buy. Be certain that the new power adapter is compatible with the specific Dell Inspiron notebook series that you own.

Hope this helps.

The port where power cord plugs in works intermittently making it difficult to charge battery


A quick and easy solution is to take the battery out, and restart computer with the plug in.

Another solution is to either change the outlet or get a new powercord.

The power adapter MUST BE a Dell brand power adapter.
If it is, then the socket that was replaced is not the right part.
Of course, the laptop can work just fine with the power adapter, it justwon't charge the battery.

A humming noise when my battery is connected to the laptop.


Hi there.
The problem is battery if the machine works on AC power only, you will have to get a new battery or continue to use it on mains power until you can get a new battery.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Battery not recharging


All batteries die sooner or later. I believe you have a dead cell.

1) Find another machine that uses the same battery and try it or
2) try another battery or
3) Give up and buy a new battery.

Good luck.

No powercord


I'm not sure which powercord you wanted because the title and the message had different things, so I'm providing both.

This is for the CN6555 Power Adapter.
