    It means no power. First to check, is your power adaptor if it is good or bad. Is that an oem adaptor or a replacement one that was made in china?

    Are you referring to the brick in the power cord? yes it has a light. my dell is plugged into the same socket and is working fine, i have tried different sockets and each time the brick light will light up but the toughbook, nothing. i can buy a multimeter if needed and my dad knows how to use it so im good there. thankyou for all the help!

    "I keep trying different sockets"..... Something tells me that there is a loose nut somewhere.... J/k

    If you got into the BIOS... You can't do anything to fry the BIOS by changing things..... HOWEVER.. Changing charging tips if you have a universal charger that may be the wrong voltage CAN fry your laptop.....

    We all live and learn... Some with smoke.... Some without...

    The light means the power is getting from the wall to the brick; a multi-meter will verify if the power is getting from the brick to the end of the cable (unless of course you want to stick your tongue to it, but that is NOT ADVISABLE hehehe). If we determine the power IS getting through the brick to the end, then we begin at the A/C connector on your laptop and keep working our way inwards until we find where the power stops. If the power is not getting from the brick to the end, then we condemn the A/C adapter and get you a new one. Follow us so far??

    May I know the rated voltage and current of the brick that you are using? it is printed on the brick itself.

    edit: output side.
