Red light even when plugged in.

Postby roystonlodge » Tue Jan 05, 2010 7:25 pm

I get a red light even when the power supply is plugged in. Also, if I try to boot with the power supply plugged in but without the battery, nothing happens.

I assume this means I need a new power supply. At least, I hope that's the only problem.

What do y'all say?

It was definitely the power supply. When I plugged in with a generic 12v power supply from Radio Shack, the laptop charged just fine.
