My laptop keeps shutting down and then rebooting, it has been happening a lot. A few days ago it just shut down, while it was charging and it would not turn back on. It still won't. I lost the original charger, but I'm using a charger that fits it. I have been charging it for a day or two and it won't turn on! I need my laptop and I can't really afford to buy a new battery, I heard they are really expensive. My laptop is an Acer, Aspire 5742 series. Please help. ):

A:My laptop wont turn on or charge

If you don't have the original charger and you are using a charger not designed for your laptop voltage, amps and watts you most likely damaged your laptop. (Capacitor or resistor on the motherboard).

I bought a acer chroombook C720, it was working fine and charging fine for about a month or two, but one day i left it charging and when i got home i tried to turn on, but it wouldnt and when I looked if it was charging the charging led wasnt on. i left it alone for a month and try to plug it in and charge it but it wasnt workin so I call acer customer servise but they say the didnt know what it was so they send a new charge to see if that was the proble but it wasnt. I call acer again they told me that i could send the chromebook back but it could be a possibility that i could pay for anything they fix which i think is not fair cause i have a year guarranty, and it was about three months that i have bought it. so before sending the chromebook i tried to plug it in to see if it would work and to my surprised the charging led turn on and minutes later the chromebook turn on and it was charging fine. my happiness didnt last long cause three days later it did the same thing it wont turn on or charge again. I dont know what could it be I need help but I dont want to call acer again. if some one can help me please. my guarranty is about to expire in may i dont know what to do!

A:i have a acer c720 it wont charge or turn on

vira,
 
Sorry to hear that you are having charging issues. I'd like to clarify a few things about your post, to make sure I understand what you are trying to explain.
 

"...I call acer customer servise but they say the didnt know what it was so they send a new charge to see if that was the proble but it wasnt."

How was the determination made that this wouldn't fix the problem?
 

"I call acer again they told me that i could send the chromebook back but it could be a possibility that i could pay for anything they fix which i think is not fair cause i have a year guarranty, and it was about three months that i have bought it."

The technician you spoke with was probably just giving the standard disclaimer, but they also give the same disclaimer if the description of the problem sounds like it might be something that is outside of the stadard manufacturer's warranty.
 

"so before sending the chromebook i tried to plug it in to see if it would work and to my surprised the charging led turn on and minutes later the chromebook turn on and it was charging fine. my happiness didnt last long cause three days later it did the same thing it wont turn on or charge again."

This sounds like a little bit of charge left in the battery, not an issue fixing itself unfortunately.
 
It sounds to me like there is a charging problem, which based on your post here doesn't sound like anything that is outside of the standard manufacturer's warranty. I'd love to see if I c... Read more

So one day I reset my phone due to my phone slowing down, and it would not turn on.
For info purposes I have a Lumia 640 updated to win 10 (originally 8.1)
After this I put it on the charger, it would load the Microsoft logo. then go to the charging screen with plug icon.
This is odd due to being at 80℅ of battery before I rebooted. Often it'll sit there with no result, sometimes it'll reboot multiple times.
If I remove the charger the phone instantly turns off. This has been going on for 5 days. Yesterday when I plugged the phone in it went back to tiles, but when I removed the battery to put my sim back in the issue came back. It also showed 72℅ charged so can't be the battery, and I don't know how that happened.
Windows recovery tool can't see the device and when I choose the find option the fix won't get to the phone. When I plug my Lumia via USB it reboots over and over and disconnects over and over as my computer keeps making the USB sound. The only time this doesn't happen is if i hold volume up or down when I plug it, sometimes, and that just freezes it on the ms logo. When I continue from there the phone will reboot as the installation is loading.
The issue is clearly not the battery. As it's 70℅ or so, yet Iget the 0 charge icon and the phone won't turn on outside the charger.
I have no clue what the solution to this problem is.

Last night I was using my laptop and out of nowhere my screen went blank but the machine stayed powered on. I rebooted and about 15 mins later the screen went blank again and the power turned off. I tried to turn it back on and it wouldn't respond. The charge indicator light won't respond either when I plug it in. The computer never told me the battery was running low either. I've tried plugging it in a few different outlets. Does this sound like a battery problem or something internal with the computer? The laptop is about 2 years old.

If it sounds like a battery, I'd have no problem buying a new one and trying it. If this sounds like an internal one though I don't want to waste my money on one and would like to put that towards a new one.

Thank you.

Hello,I'm really disappointed with my HP laptop which is not even a year old.It has hardly been used. I used it last night and it was fine. Today I plugged it in and tried to turn it on.. It was charging and the power button was flashing but it would not turn on.I left it charging for a while and then returned to try and turn it on. This time when I tried it made a strange noise as though it was literally dying and then suddenly the light behind the power button and the LED that indicates it's charging, both died out.I have tried taking the battery out, draining the residual energy, using it without a battery.... Nothing.I suspect it is a problem with the laptop as oppose to the charger as the laptop WAS charging, it just would not turn on.. And after the computer made the dying sound it will not light up at all.Help would be appreciated. I'm so frustrated as I desperately need to use my laptop right now for work and I am not in a position to buy a new one.

hello all, I have a laptop, HP Compaq nc8230. Has not been used for any other purpose but internet use and regular student use. Not long ago the pc just stopped turning on. Not a sound or visibility of life. It's totally dead! The only led that lights up is the charge led, it turns green but does not charge the computer at all. I have removed/reinstalled the battery and the ram module to see if anything will change but it's still dead. Do any of you have any suggestions of what it could be? Please help me revive my laptop back to operational. Thank you, any help you all can give me is greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure if I'm putting this in the right place, but I suppose it will work. I have an HP pavillion notebook that's a little over a year old. I was playing a game on it last night when the screen just went to black. It sat there with a black screen for about 10 minutes before I did a hard shut down. I tried to turn it back on about 20 minutes later, and it wouldn't turn on. Assuming it was dead, I plugged it in, but the charging light wouldn't light up. I'm really not sure what's going on, I've read some places it could be the mother board, or the charger needs to be replaced. My warranty conviently ran out in August, and it would be great to know what's wrong with it.

A:Laptop won't turn on or charge

Hi sklassen,

 

I saw your post regarding the computer not turning on. It could several things that are causing the problem; the motherboard, battery or power cord. I would start with a hard reset, remove both the battery and the power cord. Then hold down the power button for 60 seconds, this will drain any excess power in the unit then start by plugging in the power cord first and try starting up the laptop. Then try it with the battery.

 

Are the Num and Caps Lock key flashing at all? If so how many times? Do you hear the fans turning on at all? It will be hard to diagnose this issue without the laptop turning on.

 

What is your product number? What is your operating system?

Try another outlet.
Take out the battery and try it with the ac adapter\power cord plugged in.
Try another AC Adapter or Power Cord.

One of the two is probably faulty.

Hello,My laptop said 7% left of battery so I stood up and got the charger when I came back the laptop was off and I tried turning it back on and it wouldn't also the charging light doesn't turn on ! Please HELP!! It was raining and thundering.
Before that happened I downloaded a file called slenderman and deleted it but it's still in my recycling bin did the file do anything??

A:Sony Laptop won't turn on or charge

Hello DessyQueenz,

If I am thinking of the same thing, slenderman is a video game based off of an old video series from YouTube, not anything malicious. Does that sound familiar? If so, don't worry about that.

However, the thunderstorm part is important. Your laptop may have prematurely shut down due to the thunderstorm and there's some sort of electrical damage now. Whether it's to the motherboard itself or another component, etc.

I would recommend contacting the manufacturer of the laptop and telling them your laptop suffered storm damage and can no longer turn on.

Regards,

Patrick

I've had this laptop for 9 months, never had a problem. Earlier the battery went down to 7% so I grabbed my charger to plug it in but as soon as I plugged the charger in, the laptop just swithched off. It didn't shut down or anything, it just switch off. I've now had the charger plugged in for 3 hours and the charging light hasn't turned on and the laptop won't turn on at all. I've tried changing the fuse of the charger and even taking the battery out and putting it back in again but nothing has worked. Please help! :/

A:Lenovo z50-70 Laptop won't turn on or charge?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Have you tried clearing the CMOS to see if it will help resolve the problem ?  Just follow this procedure.....
 
1. Unplug the charger / adapter. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If that doesn't resolve the problem then I recommend you contact Lenovo Support for warranty service.

Hi,

I'm having a common issue I would say. Last time I used my laptop was this afternoon to watch a short clip on youtube, I turned it off right after and I remember it was at 17%, although I have the power button to shut down right away. A few hours ago, I decided to turn it and and surprised I noticed it didn't turn on. I tried to plug my A/C adapter to charge it a couple of minute but the lightning light didn't even show up. I've google'd around and found a way to hard reset it ( Remove the battery/adapter/ hold the power button 30 sec) no success still. I'm wondering if it's either the adapter or the battery is dead, as I don't have any spare of both right now is there a way to confirm it?

Thanks.

A:Laptop doesn't turn on/charge anymore

Hi

There's usually a small light on the power adaptor... is it on? If not, it's probably dead. Try another main lead.
If the light is on, remove the battery from the laptop and connect the power adaptor. Does the laptop turn on?
If not, try the reset again.

Sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot, I'm new. I have an Acer Aspire 7736Z-4088 laptop. I do not remember the year it was purchased, but it has been a few years. This laptop and I have a love-hate relationship with each other. The laptop has sat idle for months because it stopped charging and I could no longer turn it on because the battery was dead. It has stopped charing before and I left it for months until it randomly decided to start charging again. Before it stopped charging the most recent time, the laptop would only charge if the charging cable was in a certain position. The charger I am using is a Targus charger. When plugged into an outlet, the charger light turns on, however when plugged into the laptop, nothing. Is my laptop battery completely useless and needs to be replaced? Or is it something to do with the charger or charging pin?

I tried my laptop with my other gateway charger and still no use. I don't know what happened, but how do I fix this? Is there even an identifiable problem?

A:My laptop wont charge!!! =(

It could be the charger, replacements not that expensive (try to stay away from universal adapters, they are often really poor quality)

It could be the DC socket (the hole where you put the charger in) Does it wiggle around a lot when you put the charger in?
has it still got the PIN inside that hole? Does it look damaged?

Also
Try taking the battery out and plugging the charger in - see if that fixes it? It may be a faulty battery causing the issue.

Let me know. I will advise

Ok i have a Gateway MT6451, its about 8 months old and IS still under manufacturer warranty. In the past few months i have noticed that my battery isn't all that good. I do leave my laptop on my bed charging most of the day all week long. Now about 2 months ago something happened to my all the outlets in my room, and none of them work still to this day until an electrician can get there. After that i noticed that my battery doesn't like to charge as good as it used to. Now by that i mean, every so often i would see it flicker on and off as if its charging and not charging, but the whole time it wold be plugged in. Well last night it did it tremendously bad and began to flicker a lot when i would wiggle the cord. Well i woke up this morning and my computer wont charge at all. I called Gateway and they said to reseat the memory and hard drive (whatever that has to do with power i don't know). I did that and still no power. I know my battery isn't very good, and doesn't last long when unplugged but like i said i hardly ever unplug it. My question is there something i can do to fix the computer myself instead of having to send it to gateway. I'm a college student and cannot afford to go without my computer for a month while it sits in gateways warehouse waiting to be fixed. Any suggestions? Anyone think they may know what the problem is?

Was the charger plugged into the laptop when you dropped it? If so, you may have broken the charger jack on the motherboard or broken the soldered connections between the jack and the motherboard.

I have an Alienware 14, and recently it refuses to charge past 45%. I'm aware it may be an issue with the battery, but the thing is that it used to do this a while back, with 53%. and then one day, it just fixed itself and i've been fine at 100% for months, until yesterday when it just went down to 45% (as i';m looking at it now, it says "46% available (plugged in, not charging) does anyone know what might be the reason? I've tried updating the BIOS, i've uninstalled and reinstalled the Compliant battery thing in device manager, and i'm still unsure what could be the issue here.

A:Laptop battery wont charge past 45%

Hi JOVVVVV,
Are you using the original Dell OEM adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.
Write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Keep us updated.

i don't exactly know where the best place to put this tread is, or if this is even the right forum. But i'll make a post here anyways.

So two days ago my laptop was not able to turn on at all and so i checked the ac adapter and it was beeping so i got brought a replacement from Canada Computers.

So everything after here is with my new ac adapter:

Now it powers on but if the power is connected after the computer starts up then the ac adapter is beeping and the computer no longer receives power but after a random interval of time the beeping stops and computer is charging again.

However if i put in the power line before the computer starts the power line is beeping at first but once i boot the computer the beeping stops and windows shows the power as connected.

Also when i change the Battery Mode in the Lenovo energy management panel the power disconnects and the ac adapter starts beeping again and after another interval of time the power is recognized by windows again and the beeping stops.

As well if i plug out the power supply from the laptop and plug it back in it takes a random interval of time for the power to come and there is also beeping.
So is there anything that i can do to fix this problem.

Thanks,
Harry

I have a Asus K53SV laptop. I have replaced the battery and the charger. While the laptop will run on AC power it will not charge the battery. It says plugged in not charging. If I restart the laptop I get an error screen that says the charger is not recognized. Is there a solution to this? I know there is an identification pin in the plug end of the charger and it is still there.

Im having an issue charging my laptop battery, i have tried a the fix where you uninstall the drivers from the device manager and  shut down the computer and boot back up but it wont do anything The computer will turn on with the AC adapter connected and the battery out.Computer will turn on with the Battery in and the AC adapter disconnected.Computer will turn on with the battery in. If the computer is turned off with the battery in and i plug in the AC adapter nothing happens it would not charge it.If the computer is off without the battery and I plug in the AC adapter the power light with the little lightning bolt will flash once and it would allow me to turn on the computer. So i dont know exactly whats going on. I tried to turn on the computer with the AC adapter only and windows shows it recognizes its connected, but if i plug in the battery it would automatically change from saying that is connected to disconnected and stars running with the battery juice only even when the AC is still connected. Some how i feel like the battery overrides the AC adapter and i dont know what to do... Please help

Hi, I have a friends laptop that wont turn on. He believed he had some infections, due to a white line down the side of his screen while gaming, on the desktop and he even said during boot. He used malwarebytes to clean his computer. It found probably close to 200 items that weren't selected to to be removed, but he selected them all and removed them. He restarted his laptop to find that it was trying to do some sort of repair function, some sort of operation that froze during its process so he rebooted. He said it he had options to select a function but ignored it and just had to start normally. He got to his login screen were he couldnt use the middle row of keys, he first pw letter is 'f' and all the keys on that line had no effect.

At this point I believe he kind of shrugged it off and left is laptop off overnight to find it wouldnt turn on in the morning. I have googled some solutions and what we tried was to remove the battery, and ac cord and hold down the power button for 30+ secs. Plug in ac cord and turn on, which it didnt. After trying that process over and over it would turn on load to his login again were he couldnt use his letters on the 'f' row of keys. I tried to have him boot into safe mode but he was saying that when he turns his laptop on that its displays 'Toshiba' goes to screen where you can load bios, then after that starts to create the windows logo. I think its missing a post screen, but im not sure. He was unable to boot... Read more

A:laptop wont turn on

To get into 'Safe Mode', tap the F8 key several times once you see the BIOS screen, but have a look at this tutorial which covers the subject in some depth :

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-start-windows-in-safe-mode/

Before you do anything else, if you can get into Safe Mode, use Windows Explorer to back up any data your friend may have on the computer, to a memory stick will do fine. If you are getting as far as the log-in screen you should be able to boot into Safe Mode as this happens before you get that far. I can see no reason for you to touch the hard drive, RAM or DVD drive, at least in the sense I think you mean of removing them.

From Safe Mode, try restoring the computer to an earlier configuration using a restore point. If that doesn't work, he may be faced with an operating system re-install, but come back before you go that far and see if you can get more expert help.

A:Laptop wont turn on

Sounds like an internal problem with the power input circuitry on the board. My top suspect would be the power jack that's mounted on the motherboard, they're very fragile and frequently get broken. I've personally replaced several of them.

Be very careful trying to power this up if the jack is suspect. If you wiggle it around and get a short, really bad things can happen. Here's an example, this was a Compaq laptop that was brought to me to fix, but I was a little late after the flames.

Did anything peculiar happen the last time you shut it down? Has the computer been exposed to high humidity or general moisture? Most likely this is an issue with the power supply, as a quick fix you might try booting without the battery, or visa versa without the charger.

There are a lot of possibilities. So it can be difficult (and easy!)

Lets do the real simple stuff.

Reseat the ram card(s) and blow out any dust
Reseat the HardDrive (make sure to make a secure connection)

Pull out the main (big) battery,; remove the power adaptor. Hold down ON for 30secs (dispersing all internal power)
Re-insert the power adaptor
Turn On

Now it gets a bit harder!
Remove all power again
Begin to pull it apart (the dissamble guide should be on the net somewhere)
Remove all internal dust
Reconnect all internal connections
Turn on again

Lastly (still with it apart)
Reseat the CPU

I assume it was from an overheating, so I let it cool for hours, and tried to turn it on, didnt turn on, no lights or nothing. I tried holding the power button down for 30secs then plugging it in, that didnt work as well. I even opened it up, and checked all the components and motherboard, nothing looks hurt or burnt. I have no idea what to do, I cleaned the fan as well. Please please someone help!!!

A:Over heated Laptop Wont Turn On

Remove the battery and run just off of the power adapter. If it won't turn on, and you believe it overheated, then it probably burned the motherboard.
You can also try removing the HDD and try booting it, you should at least get to the Bios. If not it needs repair from a professional.
