One of two things are likely your problem:

1) The battery is so dead that it's preventing any power from reaching the rest of the PC. Try pulling the battery out, plugging the laptop in, and turning it on.

If that doesn't work,

2) The motherboard power converter is burned out. If this is the case, unfortunately you will need a replacement motherboard or a replacement laptop.

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

Power adapter faults will often take out components on the motherboard as well, including the processor.

My Toshiba Portege M200 just stopped charging and wont even turn on? Is this the battery? Or what? The charger will be plugged in the wall and plugged in the laptop but nothing?


Try removing the battery and see if it will boot without it
Then check the caharger, charging light should be green and steady on the charger itself
If it is flickering, it meand power is not making a circuit, test charger jack with a DC volt multimeter with one probe to the outer side (earth) and one on the inner (positive). If this is ok, check the charging socket is not loose (if it is, will need replacing).

After that, suspect the power strip or charging / powerboard is dead on the motherboard

It sounds like the Battery is Dead or not charging. You might try a local pc shop and see if they have any laptop batteries for you laptop. Or have them test to see if the battery is charging.

My gateway netbook wont charge, they sent me a new battery but again it will not charge, what could be wrong?


Hello,

The problem might be either from the charger or from the laptop.

To confirm and repair if it is the charger, all you have to do is to plug the charger on another laptop to see if it will charge, if it does not charge, then you know the fault is from the charger, and the solution is for you to replace it with a new one, before you replace it, try to connect another power cord to the charger, because sometimes the power cord might have been burnt, that have happened to me twice and replacing the power cord solved the problem. But if replacing the power cord does not help, then you need to change the power cord.

To confirm and repair if it is the laptop, plug in a new charger to the laptop, if it does not charge, then you need to understand that the charging port of the laptop is faulty and needs to be replaced, have a repairman replace the charging port for you.

Take care and good luck

Have you tried booting it from yor CD drive with bootable software?

Any led flashing anywhere in the computer?

If not, we are talking about energy problem. Try fitting the energy cord firmly, try connecting the battery charger in a different power outlet.

Hi,
Take the battery out and try to boot it on AC power only, if the machine boots but can't load the operating system then the ticking sound could be and sounds like the hard drive has possibly failed.



Good luck.
