HELP! My laptop won’t charge!

If your laptop isn’t charging, you’re experiencing a problem that plagues many users. To fix this, you might consider finding a reputable laptop repair service.

The top three most common problems: Broken power jacks, broken power adapters and bad batteries.

Follow these steps to diagnose:

  1. If you unplug the battery and plug the power cord in, does the laptop power on?
  2. If YES: it is likely you have a faulty battery, replace it!
  3. If NO: your laptop is not receiving sufficient power – or possibly any at all.
  4. Do you have another power adapter (or one from another laptop with the same voltage)?
    Try connecting it – does the laptop power on now?
  5. If YES, your laptop power adapter is faulty, replace it!
  6. If NO:
    The power jack is damaged, or there is a more severe problem.
    You can try sending your computer into a laptop repair service,
    expect to pay anywhere between $50.00 and $150.00 dollars to
    have your power jack replaced.

(If you feel comfortable, you can also repair your laptop’s power jack yourself.)

    You forget that your laptop may not charge if you are at 100% battery life.

    This is very short and uninformative because I never have an extra battery or power supply for my ONE laptop. I KNOW that the battery is going bad because windows tells me it is. and the charge light blinks yellow….

    But what we could talk about is: HELICOPTERS! Actually:

    SO if my battery is still working, but dose not keep a good charge for as long as it used to, there should be something I can do to help bring the laptop battery back to life.

    I don’t want to put a charger that I don’t know is rated into my laptop.

    Can you describe a deep cycle charge or how to extend battery life using a freezer? My grandma puts batteries in the freezer.

    Anyway I found that my laptop wouldn’t turn on without the battery being in the computer. SO some computers will not be able to follow your stuff.
