Try removing the battery and power on with the adapter. If you get boot, then you have a bad battery. If not then you adapter is more than likely not producing enough power to power the unit. You may also try allowing the battery to charge over night without trying to boot, If this doesn't do the trick, remove the hard drive and CD/DVD rom and one stick of memory. Try booting with just he adapter. Do the same with the other memory card and then swap memory slots and try again. If this doesn't produce a boot, you may have a broken connections in the laptop power connector. This will require a trip to a reliable repair shop.

Amber light contineu glow


The amber light verifies your monitor is connected to primary power. The internal power supply is dead, otherwise the amber light would change color when the switch was operated.

My dell inspiron mini 10 won't boot.There is just a flash of white light then a flash of amber light when I press the power button. That's it, nothing else.


Remove the main battery and try again, also! the power adapter charger should be checked for correct voltage, if okay! pull one stick of ram and test, and the second piece not forgetting to put the first one back and power up, if all this fails you will need to get it assessed.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

Acer 5315, no power on battery or power lead, charger light is on the charger, no lights on the computer.


Try a mains (ATX) reset.

- Remove power lead and battery.
- Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds.
- Replace power cable only.
- Test.

Failing this, you'll need to try and swap test your charger for another, to see if it might just be that.

My HTC mobile not going to on after pressing power button and on connection of charger it is showing red LED. Same there here. I woke up this morning and my phones just dead. Even if i connect the charger...


Remove the battery then connect the charger without the battery. Then hold down the power button for a few seconds. The red light may come up for a quick second during this process.

Don't remove the charger. After the red light goes off then insert the battery and check if the light turns amber or orange.

Leave it in orange or amber light state for about 2 minutes. After that, try to turn it on. If it turns on then it is resolved. If not then there is a hardware problem with your phone and it needs to be checked at any HTC Service Center.

Acer Asipre 5315 laptop Battery A/C supply plugged in, hit power switch and the power light blinks 2 (maybe 1 time)times but the unit does not power on.


remove the battery and power cord then remove the battery on the mother board, hold down the power button for 60 seconds to drain the capacitors, if that doesn't work it's the motherboard that should be replaced.

Could be the power supply. (Likely built into the power cord). Heat could have been causing it to fail before. Possibly dead now!

Acer won't boot up


Hi,
when any computer posts/boots up.
it goes through a sequence of initialising things before booting.
i,ve been repairing computers for around 12-15 years.
1st i,d try removing the ram ( memory ) usually underneath the laptop, behind a screw cover. Or ocassionally under the keyboard.
if 2 sticks of ram are installed, remove the battery. and 1 stick of Ram. put battery on and try to boot. if no joy with that try the other stick of ram. and replace battery-Re-boot.
If this works you have 1 stick of faulty ram or faulty ram slot on motherboard. Failing this. I suspect that the CPU has overheated, and therefore a replacement Processor should solve the problem.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Labtop wont start up


Hi I am a laptop technician, and it sounds like you have a power problem.

Try removing the main battery and starting the laptop on the mains cable only. If the laptop starts fine then you probably have a problem with either the battery or the power board in the laptop.

If the laptop doesn't start when doing this, remove the mains power lead from the laptop and put the main battery back on the laptop. Try starting the laptop off the main battery only and if the laptop starts normally then you most likely have a broken/loose socket that the power lead plugs into in the back of the laptop (a very common problem) or the power board in the laptop is faulty. If the laptop doesn't start or goes off very shortly after pressing the power button it could just be that the battery is flat as a broken power socket on the laptop often stops the main battery from charging.

I hope this helps.
