Acer :: My Charger Light Blinks When Its In My Laptop. And My Laptop Wont Charge
Nov 14, 2008
When I plug my acer laptop charger into the wall, the green light lights up accordingly. when i plug it into my laptop the greenlight begins blinking and my laptop does not charge. is something wrong with my laptop or charger? Yesterday my laptop just shut itself off, i wasnt monitoring the battery because at the time it was plugged into the wall. Now its not charging anymore, did I burn something out?
My dell xps L502x turned off suddenly and now wont start at all. On pressing the power button, its light blinks once so does the light of the CD rom blinks just once thats it, no display, no keyboard lights, just the blinking of the power button and cd rom! is it about the hard disk or my motherboard or the memory modules, or the graphic card???
The laptop is just over a year old, and does not power up at all. This started a couple of weeks ago. At first the LED light would blink orange a few times when the laptop was switched on, but nothing else happened. Then it might just start up, and while booting up the battery light would blink and it would switch off .
I did try removing the battery etc. to discharge of the mainboard as advised, but no difference. I have tried other sockets, same result. I have now left it unplugged for a few days and there is not even the orange light any more.
I have an Acer Aspire V3 551 8469. It is out of warranty. The indicator power light blinks 4 to 5 times and nothing happens after. I got adventurous and opened it up. I replaces the cord that receives the power coupling from the ac. Still not working. I was told it could be the motherboard but there is no guarantee that is the issue. If it is the mother board I will just have to get one and put it in.
I have a Dell Latitude E6400 which uses Dell's 90w Charger PA-10 which is a 90w 4.62A and 19.5V.
I have been looking for a second power supply, but before I drop the money on a new one. I also have an old Inspiron which uses a the 130w Dell Charger, it is a 6.7A power supply, and the same 19.5V as my Latitude Charger.
Could I use this charger with my Latitude without causing damage? I am just a little concerned about the Amperage being higher than my current charger.
My HP 250 laptop is barely 6 months, a few hours ago I shut it down, and just when I tried to power it again it won't come on,the little light close to the charging port that indicates if the laptop is charging won't even blink, I've tried several stuffs like: removing the battery, and connecting the charger directly,I also removed the ram and put it back. Now my laptop isn't charging, with or without the battery, and it won't power on. Its just completely dead, what could be the problem.
I'm using Dell Inspiron N5110 and recently did fan cleaning on my laptop. Once I've completed the fan cleaning, my laptop doesn't detect my charger. No error message appears and my laptop only can be switched on by using battery power.
My Dell Inspiron 15 will not boot up. Started randomly shutting down over a week period. Would also display a plaid screen which would require a hard shut down by me. I was trying to run Dell diagnostics on it and noted that the video card failed, but it could not complete the diagnostic without shutting down. Now the power supply light blinks on and off in a 10 second interval. It acts like it has no power, but I know the battery was charged.
Our Acer Aspire One 725-0845 will not charge. It is plugged in with the power cord, but the charging light does not blink and the amount of power left in the battery is dropping. I'm thinking it is:
1. a faulty power cord (Model R33030) or 2. a faulty battery
But do not know how to determine for sure, or if there may be a different issue. I have tried plugging into different wall sockets and playing around with the plug attachment to the computer, to no avail.
My brand new laptop has stopped charging till it's 100% full! It reaches 98% and doesn't charge any further. I am furious, can someone please help me? I didn't touch/change ANY setting, I didn't do anything unusual, it just all of a sudden stopped charging till its maximum.
I just purchased a refurbished Thinkpad Yoga, and all was great for a little while. Then I decided to shut it down and set it aside for a few minutes.
Current Status: System responds in no way other than the 'i' light (in the Thinkpad logo) blinking three times when the charger is connected, or the same when the reset button is pressed while the charger is still connected. Nothing else illicits any sort of beep, light, or otherwise.
I am using dell insprion 13Z (5323).. purchased 5 months back. When ever I charge the laptop it gets over heated. I have also used inspiron 1464 and latitude as well. But I haven't come across this sort of problem with them.
This laptop isn't even one month old.. this is sincerely frustrating as i have alot of important work saved on here...
-When I plug in the charger.. the battery light turns on for a second then the battery light turns back off. -When I try to turn on the laptop with the charger plugged in.. nothing happens at all. When I try to turn on the laptop with just the battery without being plugged in.. the power button will light up for a second then go back off.
I've tried: taking out the battery and holding down the power light for 1 minute.. waited 30 seconds tried turning it on with the power chord with no prevail. holding Fn and turning it on and nothing
Some signs I've been seeing: only bad signs i've seen was before it just didn't boot anymore.. maybe twice out of the 6 last time i've booted.. as soon as i typed my password to get into windows it would just shut off. i'd jus reboot and it worked fine. when it stopped turning on.. after messing with plugging it in or not (i didn't know if the battery was dead) i was able to make it past the windows sign on screen.. was going to email myself all my work before it suddenly shut off on me again. the battery had maybe 1/3rd life before it died
I might have interchanged battery chargers with another older dell model laptop.. but i think only a few times at most.. it mostly sits at work on a docking station at work. i have a feeling i never did though. from what i've read it seems like the battery chargers are all compatible as long as it's dell.
Is there any way to charge my battery now? I think my battery is completely dead now. Over the past few months, it's been staying turned on for less and less time without it's chord. Today, it said "battery 100%" "6 min". Usually, I have it charging just by turning the charger chord in some weird positions. I'm not sure if it's faulty wiring or not. I would much rather just buy a new battery than deal with faulty wiring.
Yes, I have been getting the change your battery thing in the start up menu. I have an HP 625, and have had it for over 3 years now. In the past year, I've been having to adjust my wire just so it can charge. It jiggles around a little bit when inside, but the chord/plug itself doesn't seem loose or anything... Today, that didn't work at all. I've been trying for the past several hours to move my chord to the right position just so my laptop can turn on. I usually get it charging in no more than 1 minute, but today was different. Last year, I replaced my charging and it seemed to of made it much easier to charge. However, this is a fairly newish charger and it's my battery at fault this time.
Will my issue be resolved just by getting a new battery? I can probably head over to Best Buy or something. Or maybe buy one online.
If you think I may also have a problem with faulty wiring, what can I do to get it fixed? I feel like it would cost me a lot. Or, do you think will getting a new battery resolve my charging issue?
My envy 15 1060ea notebook recently turned itself off when i was 1-0 up against Real Madrid on Football Manager with Hearts (true!) and will not power back up.
I performed a hard reset, now when I press the power button the charging light next to the AC power input blinks 3 times (which according to HP customer support webpages indicates a problem with the RAM)...
SO...I opened her up and replaced both RAM modules with brand new ones, done another hard reset and IM STILL GETTING 3 BLINKING LIGHTS and no start u.
When I turn my laptop on, the blue light on the power on button lights for 6 seconds, meanwhile the led near the power plug on right side rapidly blinks 13 times. Always exactly 13 times, so it must be some kind of error code. Then laptop shuts down. Nothing is heard, neither fan, neither hard disk.
This is a late 2008 build Dell Inspiron 1545, sold retail in December 2010.
Pentium dual core T4500, 2.3 GHz
Has been in irregular use as a spare machine, mains adapter only, battery removed. My house was struck by lightning over a year ago and adapter damaged. Replaced adapter and no further issue until now.
Laptop would not power up, no light. Tested adapter and tried another 2 adapters - still no power up. Replaced original adapter and plugged in depleted battery - powered up but had to press F1. Powered up with no issue with good battery. Once powered up the laptop seems to be charging battery OK. Guessed this was a power board issue but no change when replacement fitted.
About three weeks ago, I came in to the machine to begin my day. The machine had been plugged and charging through the night, status=Hibernated. This is my common practice. I immediately noted the Charger light on the hinge was blinking alternately white then three or four quick red blinks rather than the usual steady white when the charger is plugged in.
I interpreted it as some sort of alarm; but after an exhaustive look, running diagnostics, searching DELL website and viewing the User manuals, I cannot find an answer.
· I checked the Windows 7 battery app and the DELL Battery Meter and “Battery Health” showed the battery to be performing normally. · I went to DELL support and ran the battery diagnostics which were OK. · The problem is seen always several hours of charging with no activity; and it is intermittent. It has happened several times since the first time. It happened again this morning. · I made the assumption that the red light was a warning and the battery was failing or in trouble – no. · Then I thought it might be due to overcharging. If so, shouldn’t the problem be every time I leave it on overnight? · Note my solution: If I unplug the machine and go on battery power when the red light is blinking and do work on the machine, when the battery goes down 10% or so, the red blinking light stops. · My machine is otherwise working well.
The probleme is that when i plug the charger into the wall, there is a green light on the charger. As soon I plug the charger into the laptop, nothing is happening (+) plus its flicking off the light on the charger
I tried several DELL charger and it did all the same senario.
I'm seeking feedback on a lightweight replacement for an Inspiron 1300 I once had. Something if I needed to use I could use while propped up in bed, nothing heavier than my old Inspiron 1300 which I don't know exactly how heavy it was but I need to replace it with another laptop, possible one lighter than my Inspiron 1300 which I would be using most of the time for web surfing and email. I know the lighter the laptops are the more expensive they are.
