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.

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!

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.

Sound like you have a video card problem. Try to drain first the electorstatic charge of the board. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter from the computer. Press and hold the power button for 10 secs. Put everything back and tun ON the computer. If same thing happens, try to use an external monitor. If the computer has VGA port, you can use regular LCD screen to your laptop. If still no display then its gonna be the video card is having the problem.

Will not start. HDD power light comes on for about 5 seconds, then goes out. I put it on standby, started again, and put back on standby, has not come on since.

It could be a faulty battery. Remove the battery & try to power up the laptop.
If the laptop did not power up after removing the battery, then notice the power receptacle where you plug the power adapter's cord to the laptop. While plugging the power cord in, notice if there is a spark occurring at the power receptacle. If the spark occurs, then disconnect internal drives & connectors one at a time until subsystem with short is identified. If power input still a short with bare motherboard, replace the motherboard. If the spark did not occur, then inspect the boards for burnt or melted components, cold solder on DC jack, open connections, or unseated cards.

Hi, it seem as if your battery is faulty you should try another battery to see if the computer will recognize when it is charging, you can also try your battery in another compaq presario computer to see if it will have the same problem.

Hello my laptop isn't charging properly. It is plugged in and all of the cables are connected. There is power in the plug socket but it doesn't seem to be charging. Help!

Hi! Drain the power charges of the laptop by shutting it down and by unplugging both ac adapter (charger) and battery from the computer.

Press the power button for like 10 times while the battery and charger is disconnected to drain the power of the board.

connect back the battery first then connect the charger to the computer. Make sure that the charger is connected to a stable power outlet while charging the system.

Please leave a comment if you have any other questions.

Cannot turn-on my laptop

Hello Mahriah.
Try the following steps:
1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook. 2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute. 3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery  and try starting the computer.
The issue might be with the excessive power in the capacitors on the Mother Board. We are performing the Power Drain procedure which will drain all the excessive power from the capacitors and it may make the laptop to work properly.
