Laptop won't startup on power or battery


Step 1:
Take the battery out, plug in the charger and see if the laptop works. If it works, the battery may be the problem. Check the AC Adapter
Check to make sure the adapter is plugged securely into the wall outlet, connected firmly to the adapter box and to the back of your laptop. Most AC adapters have a little light in them on that rectangular box in the middle of the cord that lights up when it's getting electricity. If that light isn't on, try a different outlet. Check your fuse or circuit breaker box and plug a different device into that outlet to make sure there is power to it. If it still does not light up, your adapter could need replacing. Also check the adapter box for signs of warmth, as it will generate heat when it's plugged in. No heat means no power.

Remove the Battery Sometimes it's as simple as a seated battery. Remove the battery entirely and clean out any dust, lint or hair that may be clogging the connectors and preventing a proper connection. Reseat the battery securely and make sure the little locking pins that hold your battery in place are securely fastened and there is no movement. Unplug your laptop while it is running. If it still works, the battery has been charging. If it shuts off, or doesn't hold a charge very long, you have a bad battery. Unplug your laptop while it is off, then try to turn it on. If the battery is bad, your laptop probably won't turn on at all. Turn off your laptop's screen-saver when testing its battery. The screen-saver will conserve the battery and not give a clear time frame for how long your battery can really last. Click the battery icon on your laptop when it is unplugged. It can tell you how much battery life you have available. This icon is usually located in the bottom right corner of your screen and will provide the percentage of battery power you have left. Keep track of the time it takes to go from 100% charged to 1% charged. If this takes less than an hour, your battery is probably beginning to fail. You can also try this every week or two to see if your battery holds a charge for shorter periods. Factor in the amount of time you have used your laptop. Most laptop batteries last 2 to 3 years or about 500 charges. Wait a few days before determining whether a new laptop battery is faulty. New batteries sometimes take a few charges to build up to their maximum run time.

Is there a software that is associated with my sonny battery that will make it charge again


Hi there,

If you plug in your AC adapter to your laptop to charge the battery and get the "plugged in, not charging" message then try the following solution:

  • Disconnect AC adapter
  • Shutdown laptop
  • Remove laptop battery
  • Connect AC adapter
  • Power on laptop
  • Click the Startup Menu
  • Type Device and select Device Manager
  • Under the Batteries category, right-click Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and select Uninstall.
  • Shutdown laptop
  • Disconnect AC adapter
  • Insert laptop battery
  • Connect AC adapter
  • Power on laptop

    If you follow these steps and find that your laptop still does not charge then consider replacing the laptop battery itself.

    Hope to have been of assistance,
    Thanks.

    Cannot turn on my laptop only the start button light turns on but no screen display and a few noises help


    This is only the first of many things you may need to do to determine the fault. But it is a process for determining the exact cause.


    Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.


    If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a 'power reset' of the notebook.

    1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
    2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
    3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
    4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
    5. Normally power on the notebook.
    6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
    7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
      If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

    I try to turn on my laptop, and it won't turn on. When it originally happened I was on it, without the charger plugged in, online. It was working fine, and then all of a sudden it shut off, and will no...


    Your battery is probably completely discharged. This can prevent the laptop from starting even WITH the power plugged in. You might try removing the battery, then plug in the AC power adapter. Push the power button and HOLD IT down for 30 seconds (your laptop may or may not start up. If it starts, then shut it down normally.)
    Replace the battery. With the AC still plugged in, repeat the start proceedure above. Leave the laptop on until the battery is fully charged. If this doesn't work, then your battery may be bad (this can happen all at once) or worse, your charging system isn't working (less likely.) Your power adapter could also be bad - is the green light on when it's plugged in?

    You may have to repeat the proceedure a few times before it works as the battery needs to show a little charge before it will start.

    Once started, press F2 while on the dell logo to go to the setup screen. Select the power options. and you should see if the battery is detected. If battery is detected, it should say "charging".

    If none of this works, call Dell technical support 800 822-8965 for further assistance

    My computer won't turn on at all, the green light comes on but only a black screen shows. When it was plugged in to power the light wasn't showing that it was charging so took out the battery and then...


    1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
    2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
    3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
    4. The power button could be bad.
    5. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

    Not charging


    which green light?

    light from the ac power adapter or the light from the battery?

    if ac power adapter you are referring to try a diff power wall socket if ac power adapter still off then replace ac power adapter alone.

    if battery light is off but the laptop works fine with ac adapter alone try updating the laptop BIOS.

    if ac adapter light turns off when it plug to the laptop replace motherboard.

    Adapter is plugged in, but not charging for my Dell Inspiron 1526. Any thoughts?


    turn on the machine and as soon as you turn on the machine keep on tapping f2 which takes you to BIOS screen, In the system option come to the Battery info and if it is showing battery and shows ac adapter as none it means adapter is faulty if it shows ac adapter type unknown then be prepared to purchase a new system board for your laptop

    Laptop won't turn on


    The blinking orange battery light generally indicates that the battery isn't working properly, usually going out and not charging properly. In this case, since the adapter will not power the machine without the battery, and it should, I'm going to say that the adapter is going out and not getting the proper amount of power to the system. Try replacing the adapter. Be sure to replace it with a Dell replacement, the Targus brand universal adapters do not work well with Dell machines, and in most cases won't work at all.
