G570 power button flashing when power cord plugged...

Q: G570 power button flashing when power cord plugged...

My g570 laptop is 4 years old, so probably time for a new one...BUT I'd like to get some more life out of this if I could. Currently I'm running only on battery power. The power button (upper left right above the F1 key) is solid white however when I plug it in...it'll start charging for about 10 seconds and then it stops charging and the power button starts flashing white. I've tried the shutting down, taking out the battery and pressing the power button and also holding the button to discharge. Still the same outcome. I've also tried turning it on with the battery removed and just the AC power source and it turns out and makes it past the Lenovo splash screen but loses power before getting to the windows loading screen. Any other suggestions? Or should I just assume the charging circuit on the motherboard has failed and I should rescue my data while I can?

Greetings all, Shaun here, new to the forum.
Thought I would post this, so someone somewhere may see it one day, and it may help them. Also, maybe someone here has an idea as to what may be causing this, as I don't believe i have fixed the underlying issue, just allowed myself to continue using my machine for the time being.
So, got up this morning, made my coffee, went to the desktop - Dell Dimension 9150. Hit the power button, NOTHING. Looked at the button, and it was flashing amber, probably once every 4-5 seconds.
Great. Opened it up, checked all connections. Unplugged, held power button for 20 seconds or so, until the green LED on the MB went off. Unplugged all peripherals, plugged back in, same deal.
Opened up spare, non working PC, that has a known good power supply (700 watt), threw that into the Dell. Sane deal. Started reading different forums. Decided to try jumping the green wire on the main power cable (24 pin), WHILE PC IS PLUGGED IN. I found, that as long as I would hold the jumper into the green / black wires, it would start the fans up, everything sounded like it was starting up. Problem is, I was nervous, as I didn't know if this was going to damage anything, so i didn't want to sit there and hold it for any longer than I needed to. Well, as soon as I took out the jumper, the PC would go right back to being OFF, indefinitely.
Original power supply back into the Dell.

I have an HP Compaq 6515b laptop that if the power cord is plugged into it, I will not get a display. I guess it IS booting up, but I see nothing. I have to unplug the cord from my system, hit the on button and then I can plugged the cord in right away and it will boot up. (The power cord doesn't have to be plugged in, but if it is it won't show a display) It is also running pretty slow booting up.....I run Avast and nothing shows up....just tracking cookies.

Hi, I've just purchased a refurbished Dell E6400 laptop a couple months ago, OS is OEM Win7 Pro. It is

working fine with no service affecting problems. There is one issue I've been unable to find a resolution for,

when using ac power the laptop powers up immediately when the power cord is plugged in. I've looked and

looked through the choices for power options, plans, etc... and haven't found anything about this particular

setting. I'd like it if when I plugged it in it would wait until I pressed the power button, I haven't found

anything indicating this is default with no option to change it, if it is I can live with it but would rather use

the power button to turn it on.

Hi, the old girl is generally still going. My issue is now that when the x1 is powered up and plugged in it does not permanently recognize that the power cord is plugged in and alternates every second between battery power and cord power. As a result it does not charge sufficiently and runs out of battery at some point. When powered down and plugged in the battery charges over several hours and the laptop can be put back in use. The cord seems fine and the green light on the side of the computer when plugged in does not flicker.. Thanks for your ideas.

Further if power cord is plugged in after booting, the system hangs / shuts down. It runs fine on safe mode. I believe it is a driver updation problem but not sure.

My computer has turned on fine for the past year and a half. I was playing Counter Strike Source recently and the computer turned off.

-When I press the case power switch, absolutely nothing happens.
-The fans do not turn on,
-the LEDs don't light up.
-Nothing changes.
-shorted power switch pins, didnt work
-Power Supply is set to 115V.
-The 20-pin ATX and 4-pin ATX and IDE power cables are all plugged in properly.
- removed the motherboard from the case, reattached it (properly grounded as it was when it used to work).
- removed and dusted the video card, RAM, sound card, motherboard, processor fan, case fans, everything.
-power switch cable from my case succeeds in turning on my brother's motherboard when I plug it in (exact same motherboard, MSI 865PE Neo-2).

My power supply seems to work, at least in powering the ethernet cord that is plugged into my motherboard (the cord blinks orange). But nothing else lights up. But that did not solve the problem.


If anyone has a solution, please let me know soon. Thank you.
 

A:No Fans, No LED, No power on...but ethernet cord blinks orange when plugged in.

Any chance your brother would let you borrow his PSU for a few minutes?

I know this sounds crazy but I've seen it work once - flip that 115 switch to 230 (probably leave it there for a second or so - no idea if time has anything to do with it or not) and then flip it back to 115. BE SURE TO HAVE THE UNIT UNPLUGGED WHEN DOING THIS. Then plug it back up and see if it will fire up for you.

I have a 3-4 year old Compaq Presario SR2017CL desktop and recently (maybe a month or so ago) the power-on button (green) began flashing when the computer goes into hibernation. I saw this a year or so ago and there was usually an update to Adobe, Microsoft, iTunes, etc. that needed installing. I've checked all those and can't find anything to explain the infernal blinking! I even downloaded an update to the BIOS and that didn't do any good, either. Can you think of any reason for the light to blink? It's actually the lighted power on button and not an indicator inside the box. Other recent changes I've made to the system: removed Norton Antivirus using the registry since there was no uninstall for the program (also a puzzle to me????) and uninstalled my Kodak printer for reasons I won't go into right now. Would appreciate and help you can give.

Sorry I don't know the proper terms, but basically the pin inside the jack where the power cord gets plugged into on my laptop was bent so that it's really hard for me to plug in my power cord and have it stay in place. My warranty with best buy has expired, so I need to figure out how to solve this problem on my own. I can't just leave it like this because the cord comes out really easily and I can't continue to work with such a tenuous setup. Anyway, is this just a matter of replacing the entire unit inside my laptop? I know you probably need more information, but I'm not sure what to provide, so please ask any questions. The laptop is a Toshia M-45, about 3-4 years old. Thanks in advance

I have just bought a Dell 19.5 V 90 W power supply adapter for a Dell from ebay. The PSU turned up this morning without a power cord. That's annoying enough but when I looked the connector needed is a type I have never seen before. The centre pin is slightly longer and wider than the other two so I assume that is the Earth pin. The centre pin is also offset between the other two. Again I suppose for connecting only 1 way. The two outer pins have a distance of just under 2 cms between them. Please can anyone tell me what type of connector this is. If I can get some info on it then I may be able to get one.

The system's fan was very loud so I put in a new power supply and then everything booted up fine. Unfortunately, that didn't solve the problem. It was the Motherboard fan making all the noise.

So, I put the old power supply back in and now the system doesn't power up at all. I checked all connections & I replaced the power cord and tried a different electrical outlet.

I even put the new P/S back in and nothing changed. It still doesn't power up. It's dead!

I would start by dispersing all internal voltage.

Re=attach the power cord
Try again

If it didn't fix then remove all addons, usb devices really anything attached (except screen and keyboard and power cord)
And try again

If it didn't fix then, confirm all internal connections are secure (even detach the dvd drive{s}

If it didn't fix then try disconnecting all fans (what !) for about 10 secs (turning on) I once had a fan of all things, that stopped my computer from turning on (unbelievable, I know)

Lastly, check the CPU for heat damage !

I ask because I think that's what's behind my computer powering itself off from the main desktop today.
Order of events:

- Go to turn on my computer, sees its not powering on after pressing the button.
- No problem, this has happened before, but not for a few months. Reaches back and pushes the power cable back in/ move the wire a little until I can turn the PC on.
-Pc turns on. Clicks the proper user, desktop appears, nothing unusual.
- Walks away for about 10ish seconds, comes back to see the computer powered off with the monitor saying what it usually does when I manually power down the PC.
- I turn if back on and it's been working for the past hour. Nothing in the event viewer, no mini dumps, Already set to not auto reboot on BSOD.

I just want to first see if the events that happened can possibly/likely be the cause of said power cord before I go any deeper to figure out the cause of the reboot. If there is anything you need to know or which I should check because it probably wasn't the power cord giving my PC the power it needs, please don't hesitate to post.

On the power adapter for my new T460 the power cord only goes into the AC brick about 3/8" before it bottoms out.  Another 3/8" of the "skinny" part of the power cord plug is still outside the power brick. As a result, the power cord falls out of the brick at the slightest tug, pull or twist. I'm seriously afraid that one day I'll find I've lost the power cord half of the power supply. Why was the recessed part of the power brick made so shallow?  If the full 3/4" of the power adapter plug was allowed to be inserted into the power brick this problem would not happen. Anyone have a solution, other than buying a 3rd party power supply?

Hello all.  This is an odd one. I have a T430s that I'm cleaning up for our company. I discovered that it would power on fine when on battery without the power cord connected. When the power cord is connected, it won't come on at all. I dug into the BIOS and found a setting that had been disabled for it to power on with the power cord (Don't know why the prior user would have it that way). Now that I've changed that, it powers on fine with the power cord connected, but not when it's on battery. The power cord is fine. When I power it up it shows it's charging the battery. And I used two different power cords. Also, if I press the power button when the power cord is disconnected, nothing happens but I plug the power cord in and it immediately boots as though something had been going on but I just couldn't see it. And lastly, even when this is supposedly completely and absolutely shut down, the green light on the fingerprint scanner blinks slowly.  Does anyone have any thoughts on getting this to boot like a normal laptop and turning off that blinking light? I'm sure that light isn't a huge power drain but I'm also sure it can't be normal for this to be on when it is supposedly shut down.  Many thanks!

A:T430s won't power on without power cord connected ...

If you pull the power cord out while it is running, does it immediately die?  Are you sure the battery is good?  Is it a Lenovo or aftermarket battery?  I have seen aftermarket batteries act like they are good and charge, but really don't work.  As far as the fingerprint reader, go into the BIOS.  Under security/fingerprint, erase fingerprint data.

I've tried different power adapters and still does the same thing
No power makes it to the computer at all, the yellow/ green light on the power transformer just goes out when it touches the computer  is there a safety switch on the mother board ?? I've tried it with everything disconnected
Ram
Harddrive
Processor
The battery
And still nothing
Does anyone have any suggestions ???

Hello,

My Satallite R830 won't turn on.

The power symbol flashes orange 8 times then pauses and restarts. there are 6 quick flashes followed by a longer one on the 7th flash then another quick one. The wireless symbol is lit up (orange) all the time.

If I unplug the laptop and take out the battery and hold the restart button for 30s then without the battery plug in the charger the flashing stops and the power symbol goes green, until I try turning it on, it has a split second where it sounds like it's booting up then stops and the orange flashing resumes.

Same thing happens if I unplug the ac adaptor and the battery and then tried the above but with the battery and no ac charger.

I have tried with another adaptor (same amp and volt output).

Can anyone help?

Many thanks

>6 quick flashes followed by a longer one on the 7th flash then another quick one

If the power supply microcontroller detected an error the DC IN lamp sends a blinking code.
The short means 0 and long means 1.
I your case this means: 0000 0010

Since error code starts with LSB (least significant bit) you have to read it from behind
0000 0010 -> 0100 0000 -> 40 H (hex)
Now you will need to know what 40 H means

According to some details which I found in internet, the 40H could be the S3V output fault. (S3V voltage is over 3.47V)

However, such errors are mostly related to motherboard problem (internal circuit problem) and from my point of few only part replacement would fix this error.

Needing some advice please. I have a HP Probook 6470b laptop which a friend wants me to fix again, at one point he dropped his laptop and had the same power fault and when I discharged the CAPS and turned it on it worked, however this time trying the technique isn't doing it. I've tried with discharging and only putting in the battery, discharging and only putting in the AC adapter, discharging and put in both Ac adapter and Battery, I've tried taking out the HDD and RAM and tried discharging, I've tried taking out each individual component and testing but to no avail. At this point I'm thinking a motherboard issue as I'm thinking that my friend has dropped it plenty more times as I see more dents on it which could have broken a copper track. Does anyone else think this is a suitable diagnostic? I've ruled out the battery as I'm getting 10.55V output and the AC adapter I'm getting 19V as it states it should be. I'm asking if this diagnostics seems correct as I don't want to waste money or time on getting a motherboard if it's not the motherboard but I'm thinking that's the best bet. Cheers

recently bought a Dell Inspiron 14 5459 on June 12, 2016 and first thing I noticed is that to turn on the laptop I need to press and hold down the power button at least for 3 seconds in order for the laptop to boot up, this seems strange, I brought up this issue at the Dell Store where I bought the laptop and the sales people there told me that they noticed this in most Inspiron models.  Is this normal?

After I press the power button, the power chord light changes to yellow, begins flashing and the battery light goes out. Removing the battery gives the same results. Pressing and holding power button down for 20 seconds w/ battery out yields same result as well. Suggestions?

Hello,
After putting my computer into sleep mode last night, I was unable to get it to boot into windows this morning. When i pressed the power buttong, everything turn on and working (all fans are functional, gpu power led is on, all hard drives & cd drives are functional. But the problem is, the screen to my monitor is blank. I also noticed that my usb aren't working (mouse connection light isn't on). I tried a soft power off by holding down the power button but no luck. The system does not turn off no matter how long I hold it. The only way to turn it off is by pulling the power supply cord or turning the power supply switch off.

My pc build:

AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz Socket AM3+ 6 core processor
ASUS ENGTX 560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 Geforce GTX 560
ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard
COOLMAX ZU-700B 700W ATX 12V Power Supply
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2x4GB) 240-pin DDR 3 SDRAM 2133 (PC3 17000)
Prolimatech PRO Panther 120mm CPU Cooler
NZXT Phantom PHAN-001RD case


THE PROBLEM: Computer turn on with everything running as usual, but shows blank screen on monitor. Cannot soft power off by pressing power button.

Things I tried:

Clear CMOS by removing battery and switching pins
Running with 1 4GB RAM instead of 2, move the ram around the slots & alternate which Ram is used.
Check my monitor by testing it with another computer
Tried pulling the PS plug and holding the computer power button for 1 min
Test the GPU with another computer & it runs fine

A:Windows 7 blank screen after sleep mode (unable to power off with power button)

Hello,

Is it possible that you can test with another compatible PSU? I would strongly suggest doing so.

Also try the following steps:
?Make sure that the (internal) speaker is connected to the motherboard
?Remove all memory and attempt to boot the PC
?You should get the no memory beep errors

If the Power Supply is in working order and no beeps are present then it can be indicative of a faulty motherboard.

For troubleshooting purposes it may be a good idea to remove the components from the case and bench test to rule out a short.
