Hi everyone, it's been a while since I have been in a forum- But I'm having a battery problem with my laptop... I lost my charger for about 3-4wks while I was drafting my fantasy football team- I finally completed the draft but in doing so, my laptop battery died- Since then I found my charger but there are no lights showing me it's charging? If someone out here can suggest me some advice I'd surly appreciate it, I'd even pay you if you lived near by ;-) Please, I really need some help, this laptop is still fairly brand new...

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Kiki G.

Please post the make and model of this computer.

 

Is the computer LEDs indicating action with the hdd/ssd, power from the adapter?

 

If you have a multimeter you could read the output voltage of the power adapter to see if it is functioning properly.  The voltage is printed on the power adapter.  It will be listed as DC volts.  The outside of the male power plug is the negative potential, the center is the positive potential.

Hi, and thank you for the reply- The laptop is a Asus X555LA- There are no lights coming on at all? The last time I tried to turn it on, the LED lights came on, but shut off quickly, and that was about a week ago? Can the battery just die by itself if It wasn't charged?

Remove the battery and power adapter.

 

Press and hold down the power button for thirty seconds, replace the battery and power adapter and restart the computer.

 

Do you have a voltmeter?

Does the laptop power up if you remover the battery altogether and just plug in the power lead?
