My original charger came up missing. Looked everywhere no luck. I bought an off brand,charger that had the right specs and was a 2 prong ac cord. It would turn on the charging/power indicator light, but would not power on the laptop after being on charge all night. Returned it after remembering my original charger had 3 prongs. Got a 3 prong ac/dc charger that claims to be compatible with the charging specs on my laptop. The led on the dc half of the charger is on but now the charge/power indicator light doesn't come in at all. It's the only laptop I have.

I don't use my computer for maybe a whole year.
Now, I wanted to use it but it's not working. My battery is addicted, basically, if I don't have a charger I won't be able to turn on the computer.
So when I plugged the charger on the wall, the light on the box charger was solid (it didn't blink); However when I plugged it in the computer the light blinked.
I don't know what's the problem and I would like to fix it, if possible.

Whenever I plug in the charger the screen blinks black for a second, but goes back to normal afterward, and lags the computer for a few seconds (i figured that because my music or videos skips on WMP). The same thing happens when I unplug the charger.  I didn't used to have this problem, it started happening when I reinstalled windows xp pro or updated to service package 2.  But the previous times when I reinstalled windows, it never gave me this problem.  The first time my brother reinstalled Windows he had this problem, and recently just reinstalled windows and he doesn't have this problem.  Also, we have the same exact laptop and we used the same Windows XP Pro. disc.I don't know how to bring up all my information, I'm guessing its called BIOS, but I have a Dell Latitude D531, it has AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56, 1gb of RAM, using SP2, using an OEM battery and charger(I highly doubt the battery and charger are the problem, but I thought I should mention that).If you need anymore information I'm more than welcome to get it as long as you'll willing to tell me how to find it if I have trouble.
Any help will be well appreciated. Thanks

While on AC power, Desktop>Right Click>Properties>Settings>Advanced>Monitor. Here, under Monitor settings, set the Screen Refresh Rate to 50 Hertz. After applying these settings, the blinking problem gets fixed.

I ordered some new stuff, sound card, headset. So, i wanted to clean up my

computer before it got to the house. so i cleaned out everything, looking nice. i

put in the new Asus D2X and connect the Roccat Kave headset and the computer

only started for a split second. at this point only the fans and such connected

directly to my PSU would jitter / light up. So i took out my g

GFX card and...waaala. It worked, so i messed around playing with the cool Asus

software listening to 5.1 demos. Anyway I Talked to one of my friends who told me

to reconnect the video card into the primary slot instead. So i tried it and it did the

same thing again. Also i tried my backup video card with nothing doing. blinked

and stutterd for a millisecond and stopped, as it did before. Now, it is clear, i felt

relieved all it was, was the video card. so i can just use onboard until i find a good

deal, because my audio setup cost me 260$. Basically the question here is

why does it not work now as it did before i tried to setup the GFX card again. It

acts like the graphics card is still in there shorting it out or something.

please help, Thank you,

fter connecting the AC power supply to CPU and on pressing start button , CPU light does not blink spontaneously ,It took 3 to 5 minutes to start blinking and window start immediately as light start blinking on start button .Reliability report does not show any error.Pl suggest me some remedial action

A:CPU light does not blink spontaneously

Ehm, CPU is "central processing unit", a computer component. It does not have a light linked to its operation. If by CPU you mean the whole machine, call it "computer".

If that led is close to a symbol that resembles a lightbulb, then it's the power led, and tells if your computer is actually getting power or not. It should go on when you press the power switch and remain on until you shut down the computer.
If it is close to a cylinder symbol, it is the memory usage led, and tells if your computer is reading from its main internal memory device. It does blink randomly when in normal operation and if you don't experience other issues you can safely disregard it.

Other leds can indicate the wifi connection or whatever the maufacturer thought to place there, if it's not one of the above, try to describe it or find an image of it from google.

Please follow this tutorial to fill your system specs (step 7 to do it automatically), so we can know what is the thing you have in your hands. Without knowing more, help provided will be limited.

I had previously hooked this up to my big screen via the hdmi.  The next morning I went to turn it on and got nothing.  Holding the power button down with power plugged in, not plugged in any combination for 1 - 120 seconds produces the same exact result.  The little light on the " i " lights up for exactly 4 seconds and then nothing.  I have tried a different power cord and get the exact same result.  I have tried using the emergency reset with a needle on the back of the device...same result. Any help would be great.

I upgraded my HP Pavilion a1540n Desktop to Windows 7 a week ago. Ever since, my hard drive light constantly blinks. After looking at the disk activity in the Windows Resource Monitor and doing some research I am leaning towards the page file as the problem. I am not sure if that is in fact the problem as there seems to be quite a few processes creating high disk activity, including Firefox profile cache, $Logfile, and MpWppTracing.bin. I only have 1GB of RAM. Would I be better served to add RAM before doing anything else like using Cacheman?

My Yoga 3 was bought 3 months ago at a local retailer. It had been an open box model. A couple of nights ago while using it, my wife got a Blue Screen of some variety. Since then, the machine doesn't work at all. When I push the power button (or the reset button next to it), the KB backlight comes on and power light comes on for about a second and then they both shut off. This cycle is repeated indefinitely until I hold down the power button at which time everything goes off. That is the only response I get from the thing. This machine is only 3 months old but I cannot find any way to get in touch with Lenovo for any kind of support, so I thought I would try here first. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My Samsung laptop charger has the light coming on however it is not charging, the charger is heating up so is this the charger or the laptop? have ordered another charger from coywood.co.uk as they had universal one's and i rang a couple of local computer shops but these wanted 65 to even look at it so advice would be welcome incase this does not work?

A:Charger Light On, Not Charging?


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.

Hello,I have had my HP dv2145 for years without using it. The screen is just black when I power it on, but the Caps Lock and Scroll lights blink continuously... Anyways, I just bought a universal adapter for it, it is 90W. From reading past forums about the adapters, this should be fine. However, I just want to know one or two hopefully simple things.When the laptop is NOT powered on, but has the adapter plugged in- is it charging if the light underneath the lightning bolt sign is NOT blinking?I am just asking because when I have it plugged in while powered ON, the lightning bolt light blinks continuously. I would just like a glimmer of hope with this. If this is a bad sign, I would like to know what I should do to get my screen to turn back on. Please and thank you for any information you can offer me.

Hi there,

I am new here and have following problem;

Four Months after buying the PC (Satellite Z930-103) I had a bettery problem. Suddenly the orange led was flashing and the notebook couldn't be started anymore. Toshiba service replaced the battery and everything worked well for about two months. Then the same thing happened again. Because I was working in China I opened the notebook and disconnected the battery and could use it with the charger connected.

The PC was sent to a service point when I came home, where they again stated a battery problem and proposed to change the battery. Because the guarantee was expired I had to pay for it. I refused, because the price they were asking was 300 Euro.

Than the big surprise..when I received it back from the service point, they reconnected the battery and the service report stated "no defects found, computer is working well"........

Since than, I started my fight with Toshiba support and tried to find a solution myself. The problem however was not solved until today and still I have to disconnect the battery and reconnect it after waiting a day whenever I forget to disconnect the charger when shutting down or when it goes in sleepmode) I became a real expert in opening and closing the notebook....

Anyway, maybe someone has the same problem and found a solution, I guess it can only be a software problem but Toshiba hasn't solved it until today.

To describe the problem again:

The orange (power) led starts flashing... Read more

A:Orange light flashing after shutdown with charger connected.

Satellite Z930 is very nice machine designed for mobile usage and I’m really sorry to hear that you have such problems. I presume you didn’t find some identical thread on this forum so I hope it is not some “general problem” with this machine.

I’m not a technician but I cannot imagine that described problem has something to do with software settings. In BIOS you cannot change much and in Windows there are standard Windows power settings and several advanced Toshiba settings.
Power supply electronic placed in the mainboard has some “standard” functions and switch automatically between battery and AC power supply.

I cannot say for sure but I presume there must be the problem with power supply electronic. It is not easy to say what is wrong there and I’m really wondering that Toshiba service provider was not able to identify the reason why all this happen.

Let’s see what the other forum members think about described issue.

Hi I recently got a no battery detected message on my Dell Inspiron 17 5000 (5759)  also dell power manager lite started telling me "system will power down when ac adapter is unplugged" the battery charger light started flashing an orange light aswell but when I unplug the AC power the battery seems to work perfectly however the charging light still flashes orange I ran diagnostics from bios and other tools on dells website they all said that there is no problem.

A:No Battery Detected, Orange Flashing Charger Light ?

Hi DAVE23181,
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?
Does the adapter charge the battery fine when connected?
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.
Has the battery been replaced since you got the system or is it still the same battery that was shipped with the machine? 
It might be such that the battery might have reached the end of its rechargeable cycles, indicating the end of its durable life. I would suggest you to test with another battery and check.
You could contact our team to get a quote for a battery - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
Alternatively, order the battery here - http://bit.ly/2lKjitM

I have a Latitude 7350 with Win8.1 that has an official charger. Despite this, Windows says Battery 1 is charging but Battery 2 is "plugged in, not charging". Also, when I plug in my charger instead of the normal steady white light, I now get a blinking light that alternates between white and amber. This does not happen when I detach the tablet and charge the tablet. The tablet will then give a steady white light.
I have tried using Windows 10 and I tried doing a factory reset but to no avail.

Hello! Yesterday my laptop was working just fine, and today when the battery was about to die I plugged it in. After it was done charging I unplugged it, but then the whole laptop shut down (despite the battery being on 100%). I tried turning it back on, no luck, gave it a couple of minutes and tried again still to no effect. I plugged in the charger again and only then did the laptop switch on, and I now notice the light where the cable is blinks super fast and is red. If i unplug it, it shuts down again.I read that I might need to change the battery, but the laptop is pretty much brand new - maybe a little over half a year old. I've also been told that the warranty might not cover issues like this, but I couldn't find anything in the actual booklet, so... is that really the case?

My Dell Inspiron 17R 5720 doesn't recognize charger any more. And unfortunately my warranty expired 2 month ago.It was plugged in and working in the morning, but then in the afternoon I noticed that it was running on the battery only. It wont start without battery (just charger plugged in).
1. So here what I have done to debug. Me and my brother, we have purchased the same Dell laptops at the same time a year and a bit ago. This is why for a debugging purposes it was good.I took my charger and plugged in to his computer. And it works. Definitely not the charger issue I guess. And when I plug charger in to my computer, green light is still on the charger. And I have the original charger that came with the laptop.
2. Now, laptop works on the battery only, so this means that motherboard is working. I guess.
3. Next thing I did was unplugged charger and removed the battery from the laptop. Then I pushed and hold "Power" button for 45 seconds to discharge a flea charge. Plugged charger back in but laptop wont start.
4. Next I started laptop on the battery, went to BIOS and checked if the charger is recognized in the BIOS. No, it doesn't recognize charger. So, if it is not a charger then what else can it be?
5. Laptop doesn't have any strange smells so I'm not sure if anything happened with the motherboard, but I would assume mother board is ok because it works of the battery.

Hi CJ777,
Thanks for reaching out with your query. You pretty much figured out all points of failure. Good job.
If the adapter is not detected in BIOS, it most likely is an issue with the mother board. In the BIOS set up, AC adapter should show up as 65w or 90w. If the adapter status is 'None' or 'Unknown Device Installed', it indicates that the mother board is not detecting the adapter for which the battery is not getting charged. Once the battery charge drains, I'm sure the adapter will not charge it again. Replacing the system board should resolve this issue.

Hi. Tonight I had a problem with my laptop. It was in sleeping mode, and when I open the lid there were no mouse function and no touch screen function. So the only thing I could do was to press the power button for 3 seconds to turn it off, but it didn't completely, because the screen turn off, but the power button light is blinking just like when it is on sleep mode, and I'm not sure if the hard drive light was on, off or blinking before this, but now is blinking. I press the power button and nothing happen, I press it for 3 seconds and nothing happen. I even did the HDMI connection to another monitor, but both monitors don't show anything, not even recognize that something is connected to the HDMI port in the new monitor. There is no sound, nothing, just the 2 blinking lights. What should I do? Thanks PS: I'm not sure if it's Windows 10 32-bit or 64-bit. It was upgraded from Windows 8
