Default Doesn't turn on...no lights at all. Is this a brick? - 07-21-2011, 01:04 AM

My 10v doesn't power on at all...is this because I'm in need of a new battery, or is my box hosed?

When plugged into the ac adapter, it doesn't turn on at all...no lights flickering, nothing. Shouldn't i at least see the orange, low battery light flicker on?

Are you sure the adapter is good? What happens if you remove the battery and plug it in?

Tried it with no battery, and just the ac adapter...no dice.

It is more likely that your adapter/charger is dead, not the netbook. This happened to my wifes 10v.

If you know someone with a similar charger try theirs. A replacement can be purchased for under $10 on eBay.
