Lap top was plugged in and working with full charge. Turned around and had blank screen and computer would not turn on.
I also leave it plugged in almost all the time, learned that can be bad.
Did this 3-4 times, took battery out and unplugged computer from adapter, held start button down for about 1 minute and tried to restart.
Used compressed air and blew into fans, a little dust came out.
Took battery out and tried to run straight from adapter – nothing
Replaced CMOS battery inside – nothing
Then took it to a computer repair store where they charged me $40 and suggested it was the CMOS battery or charger. So I purchased a new charger.
Plugged it in with new charger and turned it on. It worked and immediately showed the battery was at 98%. I ran a virus scan, disk cleaner, and played on it for about 1 hour. Then it died again.
When plugged in two of the lights come on white, and a third will some times come on orange. You can hear the DVD player clicking, but nothing works.
Was going to order a new battery for it, but curious why it does not work when plugged in to adapter without battery in.
Looking for any suggestions.
