I have the power board (48.4W006.021)out of the computer. When I plug the power cord into it, the green light goes out on the adapter. Does this mean the part is shorted.

This means that the motherboard is shorting out the AC Adapter and that the motherboard would need to be replaced.

The system does not turn on. i have checked the power cord and hard drive on another system and they are okay. any ideas?


Sounds to me like the main board is bad. Last step to try just to be sure. Try another AC Adapter on your 360 and if it still doesn't work then you know the main board is bad. Also try just plugging in your ac adapter and see if the green light goes away or if it turns orange. Those are sure signs that the main board is shorting out the ac adapter. Also hook up the 360 to another power outlet.

On the issue with th ebattery on the 1521 inspiron. Took battery out and plugged in still will not power up. Could it be the adapter as well?


On the ac adaptor, look for a green light that will turn on when you plug it into the wall outlet, if its on that means the ac adapter working. If you get a green light on the ac adapter but then the green light goes away when you plug it into the laptop then that means the laptop has a bad motherboard.

If you plug the ac adapter into a wall outlet and get no green light then that means the ac adapter is bad and you would need to get another one.

Power cord cuts in and out


There are two places the trouble can be happening, at the adapter plug or at the power jack in the laptop. To determine which one is causing the power loss, hold the plug in the computer steady with your fingers while you wiggle the adapter cable. (If you have access to a voltmeter you can measure the voltage at the plug while you wiggle the cable to see if remains steady.)

If the charge light flickers it's the adapter cord that's bad. Because the wire flexes so much at the plug, it can break inside the insulation and cause the power loss. You either need to replace the adapter or repair it by cutting off the bad end and installing a new plug.

If the charge light remains on with the plug held steady but flickers when you wiggle the plug itself, the trouble is on the main board in the computer. The solder connections at the power jack have broken from the plug flexing and need to be repaired. This involves opening up the computer and getting at the solder side of the main board. It's tedious but relatively simple. If you are not experienced with soldering on small electronics, leave this to a professional shop.

Mi computer doesn't work anymore. It's an HP tx1220. My warranty has expired and a technician has told me that probably it was the mother board. What can I do?


Ok what do you mean by doesn’t work?
No power? no lights? dead?

Have you tried a different power cord?
I ask this because of these things

  • Laptop power cords can just give out without warning

  • And just because the green light on the power cord is lit does not mean it is putting out enough power or any at all

  • And even if you test the power cord and it reads the correct voltage does not mean it is still putting out enough amperage to handle a load (like powering up the computer) Of course that is extremely rare but I have seen that happen before

  • Before giving up hope I would try borrowing another cord from someone with an HP laptop or one of those I-GO laptop cords with the changeable tips or something or even better yet try your power cord on a different laptop and if the other laptop turns on .then well I am sorry

NOTE: if your power cord has a little green light on it and that light goes dim or starts flashing as soon as you plug it into the laptop then that is a very good indication (9 times out of 10) that your motherboard has gone bad and shorted out somewhere.

But there are too many possibilities of what could be wrong with out more info

When you plug it in do any lights on the computer come on at all?

I wouldn’t give up all hope yet .. that is a pretty nice little computer and worth trying to figure it out.

No power


Unplug All External Devices Unplug the AC Adapter From the Wall Outlet. Disconnect the AC Adapter From the Laptop Reseated the power cable to the adapter.
Remove the Battery Connect the AC Adapter Directly to a Known Good Outlet, But Not to the Computer Verify That the AC Power Adapter Has a Solid Green or Blue Light.
The AC adapter status light is solid green. The AC adapter status light is solid green.Press the Power Button and Check for POST. Post means if you see the dell logo,remove the battery, plug the ac if still it wont turn on or doesnt have any light,Reseat the Memory if after reseatting the memory still the same problem it might be a bad motherboard.
