This is a hardware problem.
1.- Try to connect an external LCD screen (like a T.V) or CRT monitor using a HD15 VGA cable, switch to the external screen. You should use Fn + F5 to switch between screens. (See your Samsung keyboard for exact key combination). If image comes out, your motherboard has no problem.

2.- The internal cable connection to the mainboard may be loose. You need to take apart the display panel to check it out.

3.- If you can see light on the lcd screen, that means your lcd inverter works fine, so, the lcd screen is damaged. You must replace the lcd screen.

4.- If you can't see any light on your screen, your screen inverter needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps. Thanks

Hi danielgardha,

I see that you are experiencing issues with your Laptop, you mentioned that the battery has %40 charge and that the adapter is plugged in on the laptop to the wall but still you get an orange light, but when you press the power button nothing happens on the machine.

  • Remove the battery and the adapter from the Laptop then press and hold down the power button, this is to drain power from the motherboard.
  • Once the power has been drained from the Laptop, connect the adapter back again but leave the battery out of the machine, then turn the system ON using the Adapter only.
  • If the Laptop turns ON using the adapter only then it is possible something is wrong with either the Battery or the motherboard of the Laptop.
  • Turn the Laptop OFF again then put the battery back in, then power the system again check if it will turn on with the battery and adapter in the Laptop.
  • If the Laptop does not turn ON when the battery is plugged in then you will need to have the system checked for a motherboard issue.
I hope that this will help.

SOURCE: basically my samsung n145 netbook

Hi Ashley,
It clearly indicates that the battery of your laptop has deteriorated and cannot hold enough charge to run the system without AC Adaptor/ external Power Supply Source. So, the battery is supposed to be replaced with a new one. You may have noticed that the battery would be empty when you start the netbook and it shows 100% (fully charged) in a very less time. This happens due to the faulty/ deteriorated battery, which has very less charge holding capacity and hence shows fully charged in no time. If so, I suggest that you buy a new genuine battery (not any replacement), as genuine battery would last longer and serve you best.
On the contrary, if the battery gets charged normally and takes about 50-60 minutes to show 100%, then you may get the netbook checked by any authorized professional for complete hardware (Battery/ AC Adaptor etc).

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Samsung rv511 wont shut down properly

Pull the battery and then put it back and see what that does. My concern is that it maybe too hot. Go to and download the free program called speedfan. Run that program and it will tell you temp of the cpu and the hard drive.

My samsung rv511 wont charge at all even though the charge is on, seems like something inside it might be wrong but I don't exactly know what?

You will need to replace the battery. Laptop batteries lasts approximately 3yrs. This can be significantly reduced if the laptop remains plugged in most of the time.

Samsung laptop RV511 BSOD

The BSOD is usually a sign that there is either a driver or hardware problem. If you have added anything since you got the laptop you should remove it. You should also try and run the system in "Safe Mode" (press F8 at startup). This causes the system to run without the specific drivers, and uses generic drivers.

My Samsung RV511 Laptop isn't getting power.

Most likely problem in this instance is a loose dc socket. it is a cheap fix or you can re-solder it yourself, if you have the ability.

My samsung RV511 laptop won't boot and the monitor keep on flashing on and off but the power indicator still ligths on

The monitor keeps flashing on and off? Or does your system keeps trying to reboot which causes the monitor to go on and off. Does the screen turn Blue before it goes off?

Only 2 months old Samsung RV511 97% available (plugged in, not charging) uninstalled Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery then reinstalled but wont charge? Only 2 months old

ACPI control really has nothing to do with the underlying hardware. If the laptop is not charging or if it's not running off the battery, then you should take it in for warranty service - or have the manufacturer send you a replacement battery first, and see if that resolves the problem.

My laptop shows no battery detected and does not charge .have installed new battery

Welcome to Fixya

Try to perform power drain. This will drain remaining electrostatic energy of the board that sometimes leads to this problem. Take out the battery and unplug the power cord from the wall. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs. Put everything back and test the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya!
