emachines power problem after new optical drive installation


Standard Member
Hi Guys,

Bit of a strange one here....

I have just updated the standard DVD RW optical drive on my emachines E640G with a Sony Blu Ray Drive. Although this was my first time doing this it has seemed to have gone ok as the blu ray drive is working 100%.

The major problem is that the laptop can no longer be turned on with battery power alone.

The laptop is only 4 months old and I have been using it regularly with the battery so therfore firmly believe that the battery is not dead.

When the battery is in place and the AC adaptor is in it states 100% fully charged yet when I unplug the AC adaptor it dies.

I have updated the BIOS to the latest version from the emachines website and have also done a system restore to a point before installing the optical drive.

Any suggestions because im outta luck.

Thanks in advance :)
