The Adapter no longer works

The adapter for my "Brother GeoBook NB-60" no longer works. I can't power the computer on at all, and the batteries have already died. The Adapter cord doesn't appear to be visibly damaged, but there is obviously no current going through it when I plug it in. Is there a way to fix this/ a place to buy a new adapter?

My Acer Aspire 5542-1011 will not charge the battery how do i fix it? The Battery is at 90% and won't charge.


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.

Acer one notebook no display and automatic shutdown


= if your laptop computer will not start =
laptops have power supplys that can lock up
the power adapters conectors break all the time 
and the batterys are designed to be "con$umable$" 
so 

- - -- - -- - -power reset - - -- - -- - -- - -
remove the power adapter's wall plug & 
leave the power adapter plugged into the computer 
but pull the laptop battery out of the laptop.
press the power button just like you are trying to start it 
but press it longer, this will drain & reset 
the internal supply, now relese the button.

-- - -- - -power adapter only test - - -- - -- - - 
reconnect the power adapter's wall plug 
press the power button to start it with just the power adapter , 
If the power adapter starts the laptop on its own go down to  
"If the computer can be started"

If the power adapter does not start the laptop on its own 
leave the power adapter plugged into the computer but 
remove the power adapter's wall plug & press the power button 
just like you are trying to start it again, 
then relese the button 

- - -- - - battery only test - - -- - -- - - 
unplug the power adapter & put the battery back in  
press the power button to start it with just the battery

if the battery starts it on its own go down to 
"If the computer can be started"

if the battery ALMOST starts it on its own 
DO NOT BUY A NEW ONE! it may only be discharged 
locate another laptop just like yours and charge it, 
and yes this is crazy and yes i am sorry!.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- if your laptop computer cannot start at all - 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

this can be caused by a bad; 
connector ($5-$60), power adapter($5-$60), 
battery ($70), internal supply ($40-$90), 
or main/mother board ($100-$300)

If the internal power supply is bad or if the 
power conector fails at random (intermitant) 
most of the cost is determined by how dificult 
finding parts and dismantling the laptop is 
and if it's external or internal

My hp pavillion was no power, please give an advise.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.

My daughters Toshiba satellite l505d will not boot up correctly. It starts but then nothing happens. What do I need to do. Have already taken battery out and restarted. Any help would be helpful.


Try the following.
1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and check if it works
If yes - Battery is defective
If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter

2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its lighted or not(double check by a multitester)
If lighted - it works properly
if not - replace
3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating system by the use of the installer CD
4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications

Thanks. Cheers!

Laptop not working


Hi,

Disconnect the battery and the AC adapter from the computer.. Hold down the power button for 2 mins. Now connect the AC adapter only..

If it was an issue with the static electricity then it should fix it.

Else try changing the wall outlet and chk if the connections are fine.

If the brick on\f the ac adapter does not get warm then probable the adapter has gone bad and need to be replaced.

If the it still does not work then you can also try reseating the ram and the hard drive.

If all the above does not work then probable the power module on the nb has gone bad and need to be repaired.

Regards,
Anup
