Yoga 510 (around 8months old) My laptop is working smoothly except for this weird problem, and this problem only started up today. So when using my laptop my screen will not display unless plugged into charger, you can hear it running and working the screen just isnt on. Plug in charger screen turns on, unplug screen turns off, plug it back in and screen will turn back on exactly where it was at prior to turning off. This happens in both tablet and laptop mode.Also noticed when trying to discover the problem that the charger is plugged in but not charging (this could be due to the fact that it is at 97% charged though so may not be relevant)  I have tried a reset (holding the power button in till it turns off/on) and run a scan through Lenovo health -Hardware scan (Everything came up clear). Any suggestions on how to fix this problem? Really need my laptop to be portable and not stuck to a charger cord.

You need to replace it with a genuine Dell replacement adapter. Aftermarkets will NOT work on that unit.

Hello, this is urgent. This just happened a while ago. I was playing a game here on my laptop and it was under 20% battery life, as I continued to play when it was plugged in. And all of a sudden I hear a spark and then my laptop shut down unexpectedly, and I immediately unplugged it and tried turning it on but it wouldn't turn on for a few minutes. Afterwards everything was normal, but as I plugged the charger back in the light indicator on the side of my laptop wont lit up anymore.So I'm not sure if it's my laptop or the charger is broken. Please help.

I have a Vista Laptop that is not charging at times. The power jack it pushed in and both my chargers spark when I move the plug around so it could charge. I don?t know if it?s my laptop or the Charger. Should I get the power jack fixed, get a new battery or a new charger? Please Help!!

A:Laptop charger plugged in but not charging

Esmmy, look in the hole on your laptop where the power adapter would plug in and you'll see the silver power pin. Using a push button pen, put it on the end of the power pin and see if you can move the pin at all. Any movement on that pin means it's broken and the DC Jack needs to be replaced. Most DC Jacks are soldered to the motherboard and need to be repaired by someone experienced in desoldering and soldering.

If the DC Jack is broken, the power adapter won't charge your battery since it's not making a solid connection inside. Moving it around too much while plugged in could short something, cause further damage or even a fire.. Best to have it repaired by an experienced technician.

Hi ABHAYHENDRE,
Are you using an 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. These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional. 
Test with another adapter and battery and check.
Force the BIOS flash if required - http://dell.to/2hnhjs4
If the adapter is not detected, test another adapter. If the adapter fits in loose, replace the dc port - http://bit.ly/2hxR3OO - this is the part you need.
If nothing works, then I would suspect a motherboard fault.
You could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
My personal suggestion is that, if the motherboard is being replaced, then you could invest your money on a new machine than to repair this system. However, that is your discretion.

Hi All,
I have a Toshiba Satellite P50T-A-10U laptop and have replaced the internal battery and the charger with a brand new official Toshiba charger. The laptop needs 19V 6.3a and when plugged in with Windows XP, 7 and 10 all of which I have tried it just states plugged in and charging but the battery never goes up. I have replaced the internal battery with a new one and it was at 20% when I put it on and stated plugged in and charging but the animation on the taskbar for the battery only moves for a short time then stops. It too is now not charging and I now have 2 useless batteries.
I have attempted to update the BIOS from 1.10 which it is on to 1.90 but I cannot do this within any operating system or DOS as it always states Warning!! The System Power isn't safe for BIOS update. Please check AC and Battery are plugged in!!
The laptop clearly works from mains as it will do when I remove the battery. When I have got the battery to charge it works also without the charger but only for a short time obviously as it just isn't charging.
I want to force a BIOS update but the option does not appear to be available in AFLASH3.exe which is the official program on the CD when you create one after downloading the BIOS. I have tried everything and above error always appears.

When I plug the charger in the message on the battery icon on the bottom toolbar reads as "73%, plugged in, not charging". Obviously the laptop is recognising the charger (i.e "plugged in") but it is not allowing the battery to charge.
I have installed every update on the computer and I have recently searched for any outstanding BIOS updates. The system seems to suggest there is a BIOS update to be installed yet when I try to install it the system says that it cannot detect a charger, and won't complete the update, or it won't complete the update without a charger plugged in in the first place. It's a no-win situation. The computer and charger are only 14 months old so this is very unsatisfactory. When I remove the battery the computer operates on AC power only, so again the charger is working, it simply won't charge the battery and therefore once the battery runs down to 0, which it will eventually, I will be limited to using AC power only.
If I restart the laptop with the charger plugged in it diverts me to a warning page saying that the charger is not recognised and I am given the option to go to the BIOS setup, go to diagnostics or to continue. If I choose "continue" it simply returns me to this warning page every time so the only way to power up the laptop is to do so with the AC charger out, and to then plug it in once the system has started so that the battery doesn't drain completely.
Please help.

An unrecognized AC adapter will not charge the battery.
First try a new OEM Dell adapter.  If that's also not recognized, replace the DC power jack:

If neither the new adapter nor the DC jack solves the problem, you've got a bad charge circuit - replace the mainboard.

Laptop won't boot if charger is attached

I have a weird problem on this Toshiba Satellite L300 laptop. It doesn't boot whenever it's charger is attached. The charger has no problem bcoz it charges the laptop (only if the laptop is turn off), but Windows can't boot while it is attached.

These are the scenarios:

1. Only battery is attached = Laptop boots and works fine
2. Battery and Charger attached = Laptop wont boot; Right after the POST when Windows starts to load, Laptop restarts.
3. Only Charger is attached = Laptop wont boot; Right after the POST, when Windows starts to load, Laptop restarts.
4. The laptop is running on its battery (already in Windows), but whenever I attach the charger, the laptop turns off, and then charging LED turns ON. Looks like it can't supply power in Windows state.

It's OS is Windows 7.

What parts of the Laptop should I check?
Is this a Software or Hardware problem?

So I apologize ahead of time if I'm breaking any noobish rules, I'm only slightly frantic here... Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!

I own an Alienware m17x r4 that's about 3 years old. I was playing a game on it and it just suddenly turned itself off (had my headphones on and heard kind of a popping sound, dunno if relevant). I checked the cable because it comes out sometimes, but it was still plugged in, but the light on the cable where it plugs into the laptop itself was turned off.

I thought the cable connected to the power brick had come unplugged but that was okay too. I plugged the cable into a different outlet and the light came back on (it wasn't plugged into the laptop at this time) so I plugged it back into the laptop but the light immediately went out and nothing. I tried unplugging the outlet cable from the brick and plugging back in, but no dice. (did this a few times with light coming on but turning off when plugged into laptop.)

There's a button on the bottom of the laptop right by the battery that when pressed, five lights turn on. Just noticed this so I don't really know what it means; I'm assuming it tells me how charged the battery is. If so it's telling me the battery is fully charged then.

Correct if pressed and released tells you what the charge is. If held down the amount of light that light up tell life of battery or something to that effect.

The laptop has been working great since the day it arrived, however, I went to use it today after not touching it for about 2-3 weeks and it wouldn't start I knew the laptop has very little to no charge so before I turned it on I connected the AC adapter. Nothing. The laptop didn't turn on nor did it charge either. No LED lights, no booting sound... NOTHING!
I found many solution on the web like the infamous, "take the battery out, hold the power button down and then connect adapter" technique- which didn't work at all.

Hello all. Do please forgive me if this is not the right thread because I really need help right now.

I have an ASUS X450J laptop with a Windows 8.1 OS and I have had this problem for three days now,including today. My Laptop is unable to turn on,it was functioning normally untill three days ago when I restarted the laptop. Then the "Preparing Automatic Repair" restart loop happened. I did not know how to boot my laptop in safe mode,I tried pressing F1-F12 but it did not work. So I changed the booting to DVD through the BIOS and got in the Windows 8.1 "Repair my Computer" or something like that(I do not remember what it was called) After it was finished loading for a few seconds... nothing happened,the screen was blank and nothing showed up,though I was still able to move my mouse,there was nothing on the screen. I then got into the Windows 8.1 screen again and clicked "install" thinking it would re-install the whole thing but it just kept loading and loading... I waited for around 30 minutes.... I came back and it was still loading it said "Setup is starting". None of it worked.

I got desperate and looked for solutions online and none of them worked for me.

Symptoms:

1. It reads 99% available (Plugged in, not charging).
2. HP Battery Care Adviser tells me that the battery needs replacing.
3. Battery was losing a charge (Plugged in, not charging) whilst on the HP dock. I transferred it to the charge on the computer itself and it charged up to 99%. The dock still reads my peripherals (external hard drives) just fine.
4. I don't need portability with my notebook. The reason I have it is because I typically spend nine months of the year in one country and three months in another. Otherwise, I'd simply use a desktop. So, I've only used the battery without the charger in a handful of times.
5. Notebook is only eleven months old. I have no other problems.
6. I run Vista 32bit SP1
7. I read online that a BIOS flash may solve the problem. I'm not too keen on a BIOS flash; but I checked just to make sure, and yes, HP released a new BIOS 7-2009. My own is, of course, a year old.

Thoughts:

1. notebook runs fine; if it ain't broke don't fix it.
2. This computer is like the Berlin wall of my life. If this goes, the whole thing goes; so I tend to be paranoid.

What do you think? Do I get a new battery? Do I just be fastidious about backups and not worry about it? Your thoughts appreciated.

Thank you.

A:Laptop Charger reads "Plugged in, not charging"

If you don't use it on battery then I would say no need to replace it - its not required for the proper operating of the computer. It does provide one nice feature, if the power goes out then you can keep running the laptop and not have it power off on you and lose your data. However being less then a year old I would be contacting HP and complaining, a battery should last more then that. If HP advises a BIOS update when you talk to them then I would do it, if it breaks its their fault, but it doesn't affect the data on the drive which if you care about then you'll already have it backed up to at least one other location.

In February while using my laptop (Alienware M18x r2) it turned off immediately without any warning while it was plugged in to charge.

When the charger is plugged into a socket the charger light comes on but charger light it goes off when I plug the charger into the laptop and the laptop won't charge or turn on. I should also mention that the first time I tried to plug in the laptop with the battery still inside there was a spark. I removed the battery, plugged in the charger to the laptop and it sounded like the plug/jack short circuited. I was not using a surge protector at the time. I have no idea why this happened or how to fix it. One recommendation was to replace the spark plug but I'm not convinced that is the problem.

Is there any solution to this?

A:Laptop wont turn on after charging power bank

Hi and welcome to TSG.

As annoying as it can be to have to do it, your best option if it appears totally dead is to RMA the laptop if it is only 3 months old. Fiddling about with it too much trying to diagnose the problem could end up invalidating any warranty your friend has.

The only simple checks I would do are to try and power it up with and without the power cord connected.
Then remove the battery (assuming it is a removable one) and try it again with the power adapter attached.

It could be a problem with the laptop or that the power brick has just failed, it happens occasionally.

A:charging via usb c using non HP charger

wingman1800 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! The problem is, if you use a non-HP charger and that damages the PC in any way, you have blown the warranty -- and the total cost of repairs will fall on you. You really want this to happen? If you remember the problems with the Samsung Note7 exploding, ALL the instances of that happening (at least in the beginning) were due to non-Samsung chargers. The problem with USB-C is that it can deliver a LOT of power to the device, which is SUPPOSED to be regulated so the device does not overheat, but chargers that don't adhere properly to the USB-C standard can easily overheat your device. So, you're risking destroying your device in order to save a little money.

Battery won't charge, have 2 batteries and both in great shape. Now for some reason they won't charge and checking under power options it shows they aren't charging but reads the battery.

Can this be caused by a software problem?

I purchased the Anker PowerCore + 20100 USB-C charger in order to be able to charge my laptop at school without the need for the included powercable or a wall outlet. When I plug the included USB-c cable into the corresponding port it displays the message "For full performance, connect to a higher capacity power adapter" (HP system information) . Is there a way that I can get this to go away and charge via the PowerCore, or is that not possible? Also not really sure what board I should have put this in but oh well

I purchased a HP Pavilion x2-10-n113dx refurbished from Groupon in April 2016. This tablet stopped recognizing a charger when it's plugged in to the device. Is this the charging port itself or the charger causing this issue.  I only have about 25% battery life left on the device.

i'm trying to charge via the essentialphone charger which charges at 9v 3a (27w) but it's not working. it SEEMS to be able to keep it not discharging, however it doesnt charge. and if i turn off computer, it still doesnt charge. very weird?

A:Yoga 720 13" not charging via 27W usb-c charger

Not weird.  The 720 needs 20V to charge.  If your adapter can't provide that or correctly negotiate that it's not surprising that it doesn't work.

A:Charger Light On, Not Charging?

Hi

first off dont use anything but an official charger, the cheap ones can and will damage your motherboard due to them being unregulated and supplying to much current.

If the charger has the light on but wont charge then the internal cable is broken and may be shorting out inside the sleeving.

check the cable by eye for severe kinks or bends in the cable.

Should you find one, cut the section just before and after the kink and then strip the cable back and join the wires and test it, if it works then you can either solder the wires and use heat shrink plastic to join them or buy a new one.
