My laptop won't tun on. It died yesterday without warning while it was plugged in. It's about 1 1/2 years old. Would the problem most likely be the battery, or the power supply?

Basically, there are 2 possibilities:
1. The connection at the back of your screen is lose, so you need to tightened this connection (usually the flex cable's connector),
2. Your laptop screen is dying, so sooner or later, you need to replace your screen.

My Computer Kepps Turning off!


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Dell inspiron said battery low plug into charger, when plugged in charger light goes out and laptop will not power on, why?


Remove the main battery from the laptop and try power, if it works the battery is bad, if no change the charger needs to be checked for proper voltage. Since your laptop is less than a year old you should have warranty for up to the year, check this asp and find your paperwork should verify.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

No power LED or battery charge LED activity.

Borrow a "MultiMeter" and check the VOLTAGE and AMPERAGE output from the battery. Although it's rare for an 18-month-old battery to "die" (or to refuse to recharge), it can happen.

If you try to run the computer _only_ on the battery, without AC power, does it work? If not, replace the battery -- look on eBay for cheaper-than-Original-Equipment replacement batteries.

Computer shuts down without warning


My first guess is that your laptop is over heating. Even with a fan underneath, if the bottom vent is clogged with dust, the CPU will still get too hot. Does your computer last longer when you run less programs? I would check for dust around the fan inside your laptop. There's a video on youtube showing an acer being disassembled:


Although it may not be your laptop specifically, hopefully it will head you in right direction. It would be a bad idea to blow the dust further back into your computer, so you may have to loosen some screws and buy a electronics duster from an office supply store, but it should solve the problem. I've ran into this a lot over the years, specifically with Acer and Dell computers. Hope this helps!
