Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Power button The Ac plugin in the back of my laptop came loose and the negative wire came loose. So I fixed that problem, but afterwards, I run into another. When I press the power button to turn it on, nothing happens. The battery is fully charged the ac power cord is working. I'm not too sure what to do here.

Answers :


Follow the instructions.
  1. Take out the battery and the Ac power. Keep the power button pressed till all residue power is radiated.
  2. \015\012
  3. now connect the Ac power without the battery and try to start the system. Hope you have fixed the supply with proper soldering.
  4. \015\012
  5. if the system gets start then there is no problem with your system hardware is OK.
  6. \015\012
  7. now try battery. charge it fully and this will tell you if your battery is good.
  8. \015\012

  • \015\012
  • charging module in the mother boad malfunctioning.
