Hi,

Often power buttons are the first among the so many buttons to fail. This is due to its constant usage compared to the others. In most instances, the fault could be a dirty/corroded contacts. What could be done is to remove the panel/cover of the laptop to expose the power button. Thereafter a careful spray of electronic contact cleaner should be enough to clean the contacts. if your particular switch is covered with a plastic/membrane, it may be necessary to find the edge of the said membrane to lift it off and spray thereafter. As added precaution, you may want to cover the LCD display panel and the keyboard (and other portions) with a paper towel or cloth to prevent the contact cleaner spray reaching them.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I check internal power issues after I know my ac adapter and power jack are not the issue. My laptop will not start up and the led will not light up. Verified with multimeter up to motherboar


I would try removing the battery and power cord. You need to hold the power button down for 30 seconds. You can then attach the battery and power cord and see if it will power up. This may not be possible if the battery is permanently attached. You will be able to tell right away if this worked.
You may have a loose connection between the motherboard and the charging port. This would involve removing the motherboard and soldering in a new charging port. If this is what is wrong, it takes a professional to fix this issue. This is a rather involved problem to fix.

Try this quick fix, if there are no issues with your charger and/or battery, this might work...
- remove battery
- make sure charger is not connected
- long press the power button for about 1 minute
- release then connect charger or power adapter, without the battery
- press power button to turn on the laptop

If this did not help, try using other power adapter.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

I have the same exact issue and i only have it for less than a month. It is very difficult to turn in on again without having it connected to the cable. Even though the battery is charged. The way i found to make it work was to start the laptop with the cable connectedand then disconnect the cable after the windows has started.

I have been living with this problem for 5 months now.
The first thing I suggest is to plucg in your laptop then pull the cord under your laptop tug it towards you if you are able to obtain a connection use your laptop to hold the cord. Thats what I am doing now
If that does not work find the spot where you can connect ( by tugging cord back and forth or up and down) and hold the connection with tape or a clamp.

Hi,turned on my AA1 this morning and all i get is a black screen


Perform power drain and check it..
This might be the issue with static charges on the Mother board.
If this is the case, follow the steps and the issue will be resolved.


1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Method 2: remove and reseat the RAM modules and check.

Method 3: remove the Battery which is on the mother board and restart the computer and check.

If the issue is still there, then connect the computer to any external desktop monitor and check. I hope the issue is related to the monitor or the Video card. In this case, please contact the nearest service center.

Eee pc won't turn on (I think have already posted this,not sure)


Sounds like a classic case of hardware failure!!!!!!! possibly your motherboard, start by removing the battery, hard drive and optical drive.
disconnect the laptop monitor and connect the laptop to an external monitor.
remove the memory modules clean the brass contacts with a eraser and place back in the machine 1 at a time to check to see if they work, remember to plug in the AC power suppy, if you see the post screen then its a memory issue and you can then reconnect your laptop monitor to see if it lights up, if everything works but the monitor then its the inverter or backlight that has blown and is easily repairable saving you money on a brand new screen
