Connect the AC Adpter to power, the AC power/Battery indicators should glow green if the battery is charged or Green for AC indicator and Amber for the Battery if the battery is not cahrged.

The laptop will come on with the AC power in even if the battery is bad. That is if the laptop is okay. you can get the status of you battery from the PC when its full booted.
Go to control panel, Power Management and double click the power management icon.

Hi, try remove your battery and plug the laptop directly to an AC outlet supply, see if it will power on, if it does, it means the battery is bad as you said, so all you need do is to get a new battery and please charge the new battery very some hours before you power on.

I wish you best of luck.

Acer laptop 5551 wont charge


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

My laptop wont charge i think it has a broken internal power supply


Bad cord/charger, bad battery? What give you the idea that " i think it has a broken internal power supply" Your saying your laptop will not charge the battery? Does the laptop work? If so the power supply is OK.

Why wont my eeepc charge ???


There could be three very good reasons I can think of immediately.

1) Check your power adapter to be sure it is working properly. You may want to find someone with a voltage meter to do this.

2) Check the power adapter plug on the laptop. These plugs are bad about becoming loose over time. When we use our laptops we tend to move them around especially if we are holding them in our laps. This causes the adapter plug to be pulled back and forth which can actually break it from the motherboard inside the laptop. No connection...no charge.

3) Be sure your battery is still good. Batteries can go bad like anything else and many times are the reason the PC won't charge.

My compaq notebook 6510b wont come on When I start the laptop the power and cd light... is this because of bad battery? or any possible reasons?


hello, Even if you had a bad battery when you plug in AC adapter it should work, so if you are using power adapter and laptop in not turning on, it not the battery issue.
Though it is possible that the AC adapter is bad and you were running on battery and not the battery if out it won't come on. you should check to see if the adapter is working fine or not.
first, is there a light on the adapter itself? if yes does that light when plugged into a wall outlet?
remove the battery from the laptop and plug in the adapter press the power switch and see if power light and CD rom still has power to it?
if not either take adapter to any electronic shop and have them check the power output.
Have you noticed any activity on the Hard Drive light? is it possible possible that laptop turns on but you don't see anythine on the screen??? try looking at the screen from different angles maybe bad backlight?
Try removing RAM (memory chip - if you think you can do it) then powering it on, one at a time if you have more than one.
other than that if you don't see anything on the screen at all, it could be bad motherboard and/or processor.
let me know if you have any other questions.

hope it helps

No power


HI,
you haven't mentioned clearly is the laptop in on state or are the batteries able to give power to laptop to start

try this solution if you have checked that the Ac Adapter is finr

take out the battery from the laptop and then plugin the AC adapter and then try to start your laptop

if your laptop starts without the battery by getting power through the Ac adapter, most likely your battery is Bad, get it replaced, if it doesn't start then it can be power circuit on the motherboard or the connectors you should get it checked from a technician.

If you think my solution was helpfull please do rate me

My T42 suddenly wont recharge the battery or wrk off mainsadapter


If the Laptop wont work off the power adepter, it also will not charge. The adepter could be bad (even if showing a power light) or the connector on the laptop could be broken. The best test is to take the battery out, attach the power adepter and try to start the computer if it starts, your battery is at fault. If nothing, suspect eh charger first. Be sure the pin on the Laptop power connector isn't bent or broken.
