    Hello horrocorian,

    Lets try a few things

    pull out the laptop battery let the laptop sit for a bit then plug in, do you get the same behavior? also, unplug the battery, unplug ac, hold the power on button for 10 seconds, then plug in DC and check what happens.

    Thanks
    Joe

    Hello horrocorian,

    Some claim that it may be a faulty motherboard. Some users have fixed this issue by going into the BIOS and changing---> (some "Power On AC" setting.) See if you can find an option like that in your BIOS. You would want to disable that option. It may take some time finding exactly where it is in BIOS.

    I was wondering does the Laptop power on an off successfully / correctly with only the battery connected ?

    Also is the date an time functioning correctly in other words is the date / time staying set correctly ?

    To get into the BIOS on the machine, I'm pretty sure you restart the Laptop and press F10 to enter setup.


    Thanks

    Hi horrocorian,

    Were you able to resolve this problem? If not, please follow zep516's instructions on how to get into the BIOS. If you can't find which page the "Power On AC" setting is on in the BIOS, we will need the name of the BIOS in order to research further.

    If you have resolved the problem, please share.

    Thank you,
    Donna
