    I have no power, and no power light. I tested the power source and tried a different extension. Can it be motherboard? I was told it could be the mohterboard but that seems unlikely to me. The computer shutdown when I plugged it into a wall outlet, when my battery pack was low. Now I have no power. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message on the issue related to issue with notebook that seems to do not start at all. I would like to provide my suggestions on the issue. I hope that this should work for you and will resolve the issue.

Please try below solutions on the issue.

Solution 1: Power Drain

1. Make sure that pc in OFF and then disconnect the Power cable from Wall oulet
2. And then try to remove the Battery from Pc, then let the Notebook idle for 1 minute.
3. Then make sure that there is no power and battery, then try to Press and hold Power button of PC for 30 seconds,  and then release power Buttsn of Pc after 30 seconds. This should release the Static Power that is located in PC
4. Then reconnect the Battery and then powerr cable, then try to power ON PC, and check the issue.

I hope that this should start the PC, if the issue still persists then try the next solution.

  I guess that there could be an fault with PC power Adapter or with Power Cord, try to check for damage on the Power Adapter or on Power cord . If they are fine, please try to disconnect them and reconnect it firmly and check the issue. You can also try to isolate the issue by connecting the PC in another wall outlet  and checkk out the issue.

Solution 2:

Check whether If Notebook power indicator light (LED) is on, when AC adapter is connected.
Power indicator light (LED) is off
If the power indicator LED is off, the AC power adapter may need to be replaced. To determine if the AC power adapter needs to be replaced follow the steps below:

  1. Ensure that the AC adapter is plugged directly into a known working wall outlet. NOTE: To check the wall outlet, plug in a different known working device like a light, radio etc.
  2. Check all of the following connections:
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the wall outlet.
    • The connection into the power adapter from the wall outlet.
    • The connection from the AC adapter to the notebook.
  3. Press the power button again to test the notebook PC.
  4. If the power indicator does not turn on, remove the AC power adapter from the notebook PC and re-insert the battery. Then press the power button. If the power indicator light still does not turn on, then the AC Adapter needs to be replaced.



For your convenience,  you can open below web link on the issue . I made alot  of search and foundd this link. I hope that this helps you.

This should resolve the issue for you.

 If you need any further assistance on the issue, you can mail me at [email protected] . I'll be glad to help you.

My hp pavillion laptop will not charge my battery . It won't even work without the battery but plugged in with power supply even though i know battery and power supply are sound.

It won't ever be a 'software' will be either a :

Adapter/Charger issue (Have it tested by local PC repair shop.)
if it is good, then it is the other prob. If it is not good, then buy a new one.


Laptop power connector issue. (expensive repair.)

The laptop will not power up either by using the battery, or the power cord. The components are clean, but the computer will not boot up

Firs try with just a good charged battery, then try with just the power supply (battery removed), than check the voltage of the power supply (with a multimeter) compare with the ratings on the power supply label, if all of the above don't work have the POWER CONNECTOR of the laptop checked by a proffessional technician it could be the system board of the laptop

Good luck!

There are multiple issues that can cause the computer not to come up. First thing will be your power supply, you might want to try with another power supply. Another will be the battery, there are many laptops computer that will only work if the battery is good, you might want to stop by a Battery Plus Store or your nearby computer store to try that before buying.
You might also try this: remove the battery, plug your power supply and press the power button. If doesn't work, remove the power plug and press the power button (without battery and power) for 30 seconds allowing the laptop to erase any temporary instruction, then place the battery back and press the power button and see what happens.

Good Luck!!!

The battery quickly charge and discharge. And when the battery discharge and I connect the power adaptor to 220 volts power source, the laptop automatically shutdown and could not open unless the battery...

Do you live in Europe> Typically power supply should only be 110 - 115V
Battery is simply no good any longer. If you can get 2 yrs from a battery you're doing good.
Try removing the battery and using the power supply and charging battery when not in use. Replace battery.
Hope this helps

No power with power supply plugged in

I would use a power supply tester to be certain. Voltage meters are a good indicator of weather or not the main power distribution points are working, but there are actually several points providing power.

If this still doesn't work, check the power at the battery terminals to see if the battery itself is getting any power sent to it.

Hi: We have a Dell Latitude D620. The battery is low and blinking. When connecting the power supply, it won't take the charge, keeping blinking. Tried with a different power supply; same problem. So...

Yes you'll need to replace the motherboard if the laptop won't turn on using the power supply (ac adapter) you can either try a known good power supply, but if it still does the same thing you'll need to replace motherboard.
And for the battery you can check it there's a button on that battery to check if it still works good or simply access BIOS setup that will be on f2 check on the battery life it will say if you need to replace it too.

If you have a warranty on the computer that's good.
You can get the parts replacement for free!

Hope this helps!

You look very much the unlucky owner of a busted battery.

I'm afraid the battery will have to be replaced. Meanwhile, do not use it with the power supply; not only it will do no good, as you already determined, but it might damage the power supply itself.

Will not charge

With both above posts above included I want to add my experience with 3 Toshibas.

1. The A75 series was very prone to the power supply becoming loose on the motherboard. Those who are moderately good at DIY projects can resolder this. There are good photos elsewhere to show how. A loose connector will cause the power LED on your computer to flicker, sometimes the machine will turn off, etc. because the AC supply is unpredictable. Unfortunately, Toshiba and others may sell you a NEW power supply, which then can give you a second, and different, problem. The new power supply may not produce enough AMPS for the A75

2. The A75 series is VERY energy hungry and must have a power supply of 19v and 6.3 AMPS. The amps is CRUCIAL. The newer Toshibas run on 3.4 amps and a replacement power supply of the wrong size will show a green LED for power, it will charge your Battery in the system off( i.e computer plugged in but turned off mode) but it will not allow windows to run, even though it will allow you into BIOS setup. This combination means you have to charge the battery in the OFF mode and then when the computer runs, it is actually running from the battery, not 120v AC. The battery then runs down and the sytm shuts off.

So look at the Toshiba Label on the bottom of your laptop and read the correct voltage and AMPS!!! The 6.3 AMP power supply is BIG (6.5x2.5x1.5 inches) and is available new online for about $27.00. This problem solved my power problems on both an A75-S2292 and an A25.

Good luck

Toshiba p-200

try another wall outlet first. if it still doesn't turn on. then you going to need a meter in order for you determine if the power supply is at fault.
put the postive (red) lead to the positive side of the power supply output lead (+) and the negative to the negative. if your read 12V on the meter. the power supply is good.
if the power supply is good. then, take out the battery out of the laptop. push and hold the power button on the laptop for 20sec (resetting the laptop). replace the battery and the AC. if that don't work. then you have other power problem.

please email me ([email protected]) if any additional question you may have.

thank you
