    Hi all,

    I have a A7 battery which works fine on another laptop but will not power up my A7. I have tried another battery and that will not power it up either.

    The laptop will run ok from the mains lead and if the battery is replaced while powered up the charge indicator comes on to signify it recognises the battery.

    But if you pull the lead out, it goes instantly off.:mad:

    Any Thoughts

    Unplug the AC and take the battery out then hold down the power button for about 30 seconds.

    This will drain the charge in the capacitors. Now place the battery back in and try to see if it powers up.

    If not, you may need to check the connectors the battery makes contact with and may even need to crack open the case to make sure nothing is loose.

    If none of the above works out it may be a board issue.
