Laptop won't come on even when plugged to wall outlet

I had a laptop in my closet, it hasn't been used in over a year because the charger/adapter was bad. I purchase a new charger today. I plugged it in and the charger light (on adapter) blinks green. The laptop will not come on even when plugged to wall outlet. Does it just need to charge a while or is something else wrong?

You will likely need to remove the battery pack to run the unit. If this works, you will need a new battery to use the laptop portable.

If the power LED on the Notebook is blinking but not turning ON then the issue is related to the power supply unit and service is required.

Dell inspiron 1520 won't turn on.


Remove the battery from its compartment on the side of your Dell Inspiron laptop computer.


Remove the power adapter from its plug on the side of the Dell Inspiron (if your laptop is currently plugged into a wall outlet).


Press down and hold the "Power" button on the laptop for one to two minutes. This will dispel the excess electrical current that is built up inside the laptop.


Put the battery back inside the compartment of your Dell Inspiron.


Plug your power adapter back into the side of the Dell Inspiron. Press "Power." Your laptop computer will now turn on.


hope this helps

Tip

Laptop will not turn on, laptop will not power on, laptop will not start


Make sure your laptop battery has a charge. Plug it into the wall outlet for 30+ minutes and then try powering it on. When you plug it into a power source, usually the laptop will have a light indicating that it is charging. Look for a light. If the light does not light up, try a different wall outlet. <br />If it still does not charge, you may have a bad power cord, a bad laptop battery, the wall outlet may be bad or the laptop itself is damaged and will need to be serviced by a technician or replaced.<br /><br />Through the process of elimination you can narrow down possible causes.<br />-Try a different wall outlet(or by testing another device make sure the wall outlet is good)<br />-Try a different power cable.<br />-Try a different laptop battery.<br /><br />If none of the above help then you may need to have your laptop repaired(internal damage) or replaced.<br /><br />If your laptop is under warranty you should contact your laptop manufacturer or warranty policy holder to have it repaired or even replaced. <br /><br />If it is not under warranty you should look for local computer repair shops or technicians. <br /><br />-G33k<br />

Hello

Plug the microwave into the outlet if the microwave won't power up. Make sure the plugs on the microwave match the type of outlet. A four-pronged outlet can only be used with a four-pronged plug. Same with three-pronged outlets---they only work with three-pronged plugs.


Inspect the plug. Make sure it hasn't been cut or tampered with. Four-pronged plugs can't be cut down to fit a three-pronged outlet. Three-pronged plugs mustn't be forced into four-pronged outlets. A three-pronged plug mustn't be used in a two-pronged outlet, either.


Replace blown fuses, or if there's a circuit breaker, check it for tripped breakers. Sometimes the trip won't be obvious, so cycle the circuit breakers. Turn them all the way off and then back on again.


Plug another appliance in the outlet. You will find this easier with three-pronged appliances. Simply plug a toaster, or other appliance into the microwave's outlet, and see if it works. If it works, you know the problem is with the microwave, not the power circuit. Have the microwave serviced or replace it. If the toaster or other appliance doesn't turn on, you know the problem is with the circuit.

Power does not on my laptop


This could be one of several reasons. The most common reasons that a laptop won't power up are a dead battery, or a non-functioning charging chord. My first step would be to plug the laptop into an outlet in the wall that I know for a fact works. If I am unfamiliar with that specific plug, I will plug something into that outlet that makes noise or light. Such as a lamp, stereo, or phone charger. After you have verified that the wall is giving electricity to the charging chord, the next step is to check the next step in the power chain. That would be where the chord from the wall plugs into the transformer box, that plugs into the laptop itself. So the first step is to check that the outlet that charges the laptop is receiving power. As a side not just because a top plug is getting power does not mean that a bottom plug is as well in my experience. After power received, next check connections. Those connections will include the transformer connection, and the laptop connection. Also you may wish to check for cut, loose, frayed, taped, kinked, or otherwise dangerous looking chords. I also do not recommend using third party Universal laptop chargers bought from the store. I only would use one of these in an emergency situation. I don't trust the power regulation. And on top of that a laptop charger chord is so much cheaper on-line if you buy from somewhere like e-bay. That charger will be laptop model specific. Generally a new charger is about $15-35 on e-bay, and a new battery could be as cheap as $50. Although I would also recommend finding out if your laptop is under warranty. If it is within a year old this is a good possibility. That route takes a lot of patience, but it is usually free.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

Are you saying it shuts down even when you're plugged into the wall?
