Here are two solution you can Try and I hope At-least one should work for you.

Solution 1)It sounds like your laptop may be going into Hibernate or Sleep mode as part of its Power Management scheme.

You can change the Hibernate and Sleep Settings in the Power Options: To do this: Place your mouse over the battery icon on the taskbar and right-click.
Choose "Power Options".
(You can also access the power options through the control panel: Start>Control Panel>System and Maintenance>Power Options.)

when the charger cord is plugged in the display go - 3398089822_639f520634_o.png
Under the plan being used on your computer, click on "Change Plan Settings".

3397279781_d6fb0483c3_m.jpg Change the presented Settings as desired. If the settings you wish to change are not shown on this screen, proceed to the next step.
Click on the "Change Advanced Power Settings" link (near the bottom of the Window).

Scroll down the list to the "Sleep" entry and Expand it. Expand the sub-entries and change the settings as desired. Look at the rest of the settings on the list as make when the charger cord is plugged in the display go - 3452143920_64f89b486c.jpg "Ok".
3452143920_64f89b486c.jpg
Click "Save".
SOLUTION 2) In the power setting there is a screen brightness bar. When on power set it all the way to the right on AC power and set it to the middle for battery power.

IF both the above will not work then I'll Suggest you to show your laptop to some local repairing center.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064; can't get battery to charge

If you put strain on the jack (e.g. hang power adaptor from it whilst using or charging) then the socket on the mainboard can get hot due to poor contact and melt.

There is no way to fix this except to completely dismantle the laptop and fit a new socket - most likely a repair centre will charge you for a new mainboard.

Try another adaptor to see if that is the problem (broken wire in cord) - otherwise look closely at the socket in the notebook.

SOURCE: toshiba satellite a105 blank screen, blinking battery light

well to me either there is a issue with the power supply or the power cord. I have had a bunch of laptops where the power cords have to be a certain way or nothing will respond. this could be and since it is thinking that it is running in battery mode then it drains and then causes the laptop to turn off or go into hibernation due to the fact that the setting you set for the battery where probably on the "when plugged in" not the running off the battery mode.

it leads me to think that its the power supply because its the most common issue with this but I think that the best solution would be to either find someone that can test the power supply and find the break in the line or buy a new one to test ushally if you buy one from a store bigger named store outfit and use the power supply to test you can ushally get your money back or goto a local computer shop and get them to match up the power supply or see if they have a adaptor loose that can be used for testing.

These could be possible solutions but like I said I am almost 100% sure that its the power supply and not the laptop because even if the battery is not in the laptop the unit should still power up. on most laptops that is.

So that might be another thing that you would like to check but I highly doubt that it is that. because even a dead battery will allow the power adaptor to run on the laptop even if it dosent charge.

hope this helps and hope it works for you. let me know how you make out and if this made any sort of sence to you haha

SOURCE: toshiba laptop power cable won't charge battery

I had the same problem with my HP laptop some years ago. you have a broken cable/cord and it is the part that is permanently attached with your power pack. If you look at the cord that plugs into your laptop, you can be able to see the faulty part of it. it is usually very flexible or swollen. You can either take it to an electrical technician to change that part of the cord. Your power pack is still ok, but have the technician to check it out first before you change the cord. Else, you may have to get another power pack. below is the full specification of the power pack that is recommended for your laptop.

Laptop charger not working


If the charger case has a power LED and its not litup then either the charger is shot or the cord to wall is bad. Wiggle cord all around and seeit the LED comes on. If it has no LED then check voltage with volt/ohmeter at the plug end that goes into laptop. Proper voltage should be on bottomof case label.

The labtop doesnt boot when the charger is placed in and it also goes of when the charger is put in


Is the AC cord the original? Has it been damaged? Have you tried another AC cord, with the EXACT same power specs? It may be a damaged AC jack. Sometimes a pull or tug on the cord while plugged in will loosen the connection. If you wiggle the cord at the jack plug does it cause the charge LED to blink? Does the computer work on battery?

My compaq is power on for 2 second and off , how to fix is thank you


You need to print this out-on someone else's computer. Hope it works for you!
Remove the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord from your Compaq Presario F700 laptop, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds to discharge any residual current inside the Compaq Presario F700 . This clears your RAM and is like a hardware reset. Replace the battery and charger/ac adapter/power cord and turn your Compaq Presario F700 laptop on.

Boot in "safe mode". As it starts up press F8, the computer ask you if you'd like to start in safe mode. Highlight "safe mode" and press enter. See if your laptop is booting up ok .

If your Compaq Presario F700 boots ok, do the following,

Try System Restore first,
Start Menu->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore. Choose the most recent date before you the encountered problem. If it doesn't work, try the next date.

If System Restore does not fix it, as a last resort, you might need to fdisk, reformat your laptop hard disk clean and reinstall OS, that usually fixes all bugs. Before going that route, try following,

Uninstall unnecessary programs and applications.

Scan with a antivirus program

Scan with a spyware/malware program

DEFRAG C:

CHKDSK C:

Clean up and repair registry problems with registry repair software of your choice

If the problem persists, did you check if it could be your Compaq Presario F700 laptop power cord or power source problem? Defective or insufficient power supply might cause error messages that are misleading. Take the battery out and power on your laptop with the charger only. Make sure your Compaq Presario F700 power jack and charger plug tip are securely connected. Did you notice the power jack loose? You can find laptop power jack on ebay. Fixing and soldering the power jack requires professional skill though. The charger green/blue LED should be on. If not, replace the defective charger. Compaq Presario F700 laptop battery charger, especially its power cord/cable, lifespan is limited and does not last forever, consider buying a lifetime warranty charger online from company like www.topmic.com

Try another cord/charger. Check the AC jack in the machine. Is the battery charging with the cord/charger plug in? Has the laptop AC jack been pulled by the cord? Damaged?

My tv says invalid format when I plug my dell inspiron into it


Sounds like you may need to check your video drivers for an update, besides Windows itself find out what video you have Intel or Amd and update thru their website. It can also be that your tv is running at a resolution that your laptop might not support.However most new video drivers allow for custom resolution settings that can be applied besides the native ones in windows.If its a vga cable I almost can be certain that it is not allowing the native resolution of your display.Hdmi will automatically adjust it.Also try hooking the laptop up to a Pc monitor and check for a display if it works on the monitor you need a custom resolution for your tv. Also try a different input on the tv (if ones available) and check it.

My Laptop charger is not working


Srivastav,What you have described indicates that the charger has gone. And unfortunately these things can not be repaired. In the past two months I have had to replace three chargers due to spikes or high voltage. Too bad. So, please replace the charger and see your laptop running again. And use a good voltage stabilizer that has cuts high voltage.

Battery charger


Yes. Usually they either work or they don't so obviously when they test good they should charge the battery. Dell laptops have a "data pin" that determines what wattage of power cord is plugged. If this data pin goes bad on the power cord or motherboard the laptop won't charge.

When I plug in the power cord to charge the battery, the light on the cord goes off. I tried several charges and they work. Can charged battery on another computer and place on the dead computer and it...


There's no fuse problem with that computer, try this first, Plug in the charger to an outlet don't plug it in the laptop, if the light on the charger turns on, then the charger is working try to plug it on the computer if the light on the charger goes out there's a problem with your motherboard. Contact the tech support for that so you can get that part replaced.
To double check try to use a known good charger if it works then you'll need another charger if not, Then contact your tech support for your dell make sure you still have a warrant.

Hope this helps!

Screen goes black when power cord is plugged in.


Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. Anything higher or low than one volt means the supply is faulty and will need replaced. This could also be a battery issue, if a fail safe in the battery has engaged. Try removing the battery and see if it works properly on the supply only, if so, then the battery will need replaced. If these two check good, then I'm afraid the problem is with the power management system on the motherboard, and unfortunately the motherboard Will have to be replaced.
