Hi, It is possible that many of these answers are overkill! I spent several hours on this. Buy a USB current monitor for a few $,then when you plug in PSU's and Leads you can see what is going on.Any USB Current monitor Basically, if you lose your charger, or use a 'charge only' USB cable, it will not charge. The PSU may say, 10W, or 1A 5V, but the T100 seems very tetchy about havinga compatible charger. For example, I have not found a single Apple one that works. Go all around your house, work and wherever else and find a pile of PSUs (don't bother with Apple) and Micro USB leads. Once you get the thing to charge and boot than you can play around with Install BatteryBar and find the best PSU/USB Cable. My T100 IS WORKING a treat now. Install BatteryBar v3.6.6 Have a look at it and you will notice the charge rate. I bet that this solves most T100 charge problems??1 Fingers crossed!
WELL I AM SO IMPRESSED WITH THIS THREAD THAT I TOOK A PHOTO OF MY LATE 2006 DUO CORE 2 MACBOOK, ITS AS PER ADVISE ABOVE. JUMP STARTING IS A CONFUSING WAY OF SAYING SHORT THE 2 PADS TOGETHER, AS SHOWN IN THE PHOTO. TOP CIRCUITS WITH THE KEYPAD AND TRACK PAD ARE COMMONLY AVAILABLE AT LOW COST AT THIS STAGE! - THIS WORKED FOR ME, NEW KEYPAD ORDERED! FOR SOME REASON IFIXIT HAS ROTATED THE PHOTO!
look at the picture, you need to short these 2 connections together, a small flat screwdriver would do it, just short out the connector, and that would act like the power button, i guess it tests whether its anything to do with a sticky on off button. my macbook has the same problem, i will try later today!
