I had to replace a old cable it had a short.! Got a new one nothing happen.!it not charging period.!


Please tell us the make and model number so we can help. Normally a charger does not have a replaceable cable to the laptop - only the AC cord to the power plug can be replaced. I've purchased replacement adapters and the AC power cord doesn't work correctly in the adapter unless I push it in very hard or wiggle it to make a connection. Some replacement adapter also have a plug to the laptop that is not sized like the original and also needs to be wiggled to make a connection. Please provide the information if you still are having problems.

Where do i get a charging cord


What kind of laptop? Do you want to charge from 12 volts DC or 120 AC? Most laptops charge when you run it off the power adapter. Not all power adapters are the same. You can get the operating voltage from the label on the bottom. Usually 19.5 volts, but check to be sure. There are a lot of places on line to get a replacement.

It goes dark, shuts off constantly. Battery meter isn't showing charging.


Unplug the battery and plug in the AC power plug into the laptop;

Does the laptop start up and stay on?

If yes,

Then put the battery in WHILE IT IS ON; See if it starts charging.

If it does not; You have a bad battery and need to replace it.

If it does start charging here's what happend;

Some laptop batteries if they are fully depleted on charge will not let you power up the laptop EVEN IF the power cable is plugged in. In some cases the PC won't turn on at all.

The reason for this is because the battery must have a certain % of charge in order for you to start the PC even IF the power cable is plugged in.

By removing the battery we eliminated the battery as being a cause for this issue; Once the PC is up and running in windows.. LET THE BATTERY CHARGE! You'll want at least 10% charge minimum for the PC to start up.

If however the battery replaced still doesn't hold a charge it's going to be the AC Adapter power cable that's causing the issue.

Best advice start off with the power cable replacement first; This is the cheapest to fix; Otherwise the battery can cost in excess of $50-$150 or more. But universal AC power adapters can be cheap $70 or less which varies depending on laptop.

Batter wont stay charge


Most laptop batteries have a life expectancy of two years or 400 to 450 charge and discharge cycles. After this time, the battery may lose the ability to charge or to hold a charge for substantial periods of time. When this happens, it's likely the battery needs replacement. However, troubleshooting can narrow the problem and ensure you are not wasting money on a battery replacement.

Check Power Adapter Turn the laptop off. Remove any power cords or power sources. Separate the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Slide or press the locking mechanism to unlock the battery. Slide the battery out of the battery compartment. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Insert the opposite end of the adapter into the charging outlet on the side of a laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not turn on, the power adapter is not correctly working. If the power adapter is not working, the battery can not charge. Replace the power adapter. If the laptop powers on, the power adapter is properly working. Clean Battery Contacts Turn the computer off. Remove any power cords or sources. Take the battery out of the battery compartment. Dip a cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Rub the dampened swab on the battery compartment and battery contacts. Dust and buildup can prevent battery contacts from properly charging. Slide the battery back into the battery compartment. b> Charge and Test Battery Plug the power adapter into the laptop. Charge the battery for six hours. Remove the power adapter. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on and stays on for at least 30 minutes, the battery is holding a charge. If the laptop doesn't turn on or the battery doesn't power the laptop for at least 30 minutes, the battery should be replaced.

My AC adapter suddenly can't seems to be able to charge my battery. Please kindly advise


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced. 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.

I bought new universal adapter for asus laptop and it charges batery just when laptop is turned off


Problem description: The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause: 1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: 1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.
2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.
3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.
4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.
