Q: Pavilion g7-2292nr will not charge with a good battery and g...

I installed a new battery today and the guy in the store said it wouldn't be fully charged. My computer booted up fine but they I got a warning that the battery was at 14%. I had the power cord plugged in so it should started charging but it didin't. I got my neighbors computer, similar model and I put my battery in his and it started charging so then I plugged in my power cord and it is still charging. So I know my battery is good and my power cable is good because they both work on his computer so there is something wrong with the connection where I plug it in or somewhere else in the computer. When you plug the power cord in the LED should light up but there is no light. Any ideas of anything I can check or do I have to take it in for repair?

After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."
 
Shockingly none worked that I found.
 
Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.
 
A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.
 
To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)
 
Worked with an off brand battery also.
 
Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.
 
Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.
 
Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!

Hello fellow techies,
I have a situation with my Compaq Evo N600c battery or something in that directions, so I need possible solutions. My laptop needs to be plugged in at all times, which makes it frustrating because its a portable laptop. If it becomes unplugged the laptop will turn off within 10 seconds flat. I fear that this will, if it hasnt already done so, mess up my electric circuits among other components. Can any of you suggest or recommend options I can use to diagnose the situation. I would like to find out what the problem is, whether I should buy a new battery or some component or prong that I need to replace? Thanks for the feed back!

A:Battery will not charge or hold charge?!?!

Yup, sounds like a battery problem.

First, make sure the battery has a charge. Most laptop batteries have a button on them somewhere you can push that will give you the power level. Alternativly, there should be a utility in windows or the BIOS that will allow you to check the power level.

If the battery has no charge and isn't charging, then replace it with a known good one and see if it will charge up when the laptop is plugged in.

If the good battery won't charge up, then there is a problem with your motherboard.

If the battery has charge but won't power the system, then there is a problem with your motherboard too.

If this is the case, then the best you can do is contact the laptop manufacturer and get them to replace the motherboard.

Hello.
I've been using a Dell inspiron 1545 from about 3 years now and exactly after 2 years of my buy, the battery failed and it started showing me to replace the battery and always notified me about contacting dell for a new battery.
I didn't take this of much concern so i just ignored the message and kept on using my battery with my adapter plugged in. After 4-5 months of such usage, My battery completely failed and doesn't even offer me even a minute of backup, when i remove the power socket. Then i realized the importance of a new battery and then bought a new battery from Dell.
Its the same battery with the same specs and also the same family type. After i removed my defected battery, I replaced my new bought Dell battery and realized that my battery is working fine. its charging well but at some time, it says "Plugged in, But not charging" Which is rare for any new battery, which is bought brand new.

This is how it looks now after i remove the AC adapter plug and when i depend on the battery backup. it is providing me a backup, but I see a yellow exclamatory mark beside it. Which I think should not be present. it also says "Low battery" when there's already 99% of battery left!
I've also followed some online steps
1) updated by BIOS to the latest  2) Followed some other steps like uninstalling the battery ACI in the device manager and etc...

A:Bought a new dell battery and still my laptop battery doesn't charge!

Hi Utkarsh. I Actually FIXED this problem months back. and I exactly want to help you on this so that you can fix it yourself too..
the problem which is creating your battery to show an exclamatory mark is your power settings.
so follow these steps to get rid of that sign and a perfectly working battery.
1) Click on your battery icon (left click) you should see an option called " More power options" at the bottom of the popup.
click "More power options"
2) Now you will be taken to your control panel where you can see all of your power plans and under each plan, you will see an option called "Change plan settings"
3) Click on "Change plan settings" for your active power plan. Now you will get redirected to another control panel window, where you can see two kind of power options to get adjusted. that is, when you battery is plugged and when your battery is unplugged.
4) Don't touch those options, just click on "Change advanced power settings" at the bottom left of that window. THIS IS THE AREA WHERE WE NEED TO FIX!
5)After you click on "Change advanced power setttings", you will see a POWER options popup, go to the bottom and then you can see something called "Battery" with a plus sign on the left. click it.
6) Now you just have to change the levels for the following values
                   --> Critical battery level ( you can change it to 10%)

Ok this might be easy..it might not (COMPAQ M2105)

I ended up replacing my motherboard for a model with more features (SD readers blah blah).

I took it all apart and put it all back with the new board in...now when i go into windows (and even before while booting)...the orange lights would come on for a second...then beging to flicker

while in windows...it just will either not charge the battery..or flicker from AC to battery

i CAN power the unit on with the battery alone, and i CAN power the unit with the cord alone...

lastly, my old motherboard (which had a HD connector problem)...still WILL charge the battery...so i'm sure its not the battery...i don't think...

i also dont' think its the AC adapter since it is the same piece I used on both motherboards.....

what to do................
 

A:compaq M2105 laptop - battery will not charge, flickers from AC/battery

Hopefully you are experienced in working on and repairing laptops/notebooks... and you carefully handeled the replacement motherboard and didn't damage it. Repairing laptops takes considerable skill and caution.

It does sound like the "new" motherboard is bad unfortunately. How did you handle the "old" operating system restore to the "new" motherboard?

HP g6-1b60us Notebook PCHere is the situation and symptoms. Battery not charging. Battery icon indicates battery being charged, but it sits at 5%. Have bought a replacement HP battery and that battery will not charge also (it sits at 50%, which I assume is the initial charge it came with). Run the HP Support Assistant and both batteries fail the test saying that cell 4 is bad (cells 1 to 3 have charge, but cell 4 has a 0 reading, even in the new battery). (Is there a problem accessing/charging cell 4?)When the battery is installed and the AC adaptor is unplugged, and the laptop is turned off, the battery charge LED shows a white LED (red/amber indicates that it is charging the battery); now the only time the LED goes out is when the battery is physically removed. Before the problem began, the battery charge LED would be off when the battery was installed and the charger was not being used. Now the battery charge LED goes off only when the battery is physically removed.What I have tried:Cleaned the contacts.Bought a new HP battery.Tried the complete discharge method of turning the laptop off, removing the power cord and battery and holding the power on key for over 30 seconds.Have done safe restarts.Reset to HP recommended settings.Suggestions/recommendations?

Hi Guys,

I have replaced the battery of my laptop after using it on AC supply for about year after my old battery died.

I get this error message.
"The AC power adapter type cannot be determined
Battery may not charge.
This problem might be solved by:
Connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or higher."

But I am using a 65W Dell Adapter that I got with my laptop.
BTW, I tried the steps for disc AC >> Start>>Uninstall MS ACPI >> Insert battery>> Restart. This process did not yield any favorable results.

Please help!!!

I have a Dell Inspiron B 130 Laptop that I broke the screen on. I used it with a monitor for several months and did not unplug it or remove the battery. I replaced the screen to use as a laptop again and saw the battery would not charge. This was confirmed by the blinking orange light which according to Dell means a bad battery. I replaced the battery and the light showed it charging but the battery meter showed no progress.When I would unplug the adapter the computer would shut off. I bought a new charger hoping that was the problem but It also will not charge the battery.

Hey all, I've been having some issues with my battery for my lap top.  It will not charge at all and I feel the startup is very slow because of it.  If I keep the lap top plugged in, it will run somewhat normally, but the second the plug comes out, everything shuts down. I've ran 2 seperate diagnostic checks, one through the HP Solution Center, and the other through the F2 start up menu.  Both of them are saying that a battery is not detected.  I can assure you, there is one in there. Are there any other tests I can run to figure out the nature of my battery issues, or do I just need to suck it up and purchase a new battery?  Could it also have something to do with the charging cable?  The only thing wrong with the cable is the small, copper pin in the center has broken off.  But, when I plug the cable in, the lap top recognizes it.  Is that small pin even important? Any answers to any of my questions would be greatly appreciated.

My Dell vostro 1510's battery is not charging beyond 92%.What may be the problem

A:battery charge

Hi JITH IN,
When was the last time the battery charged for 100%? Are you using an original Dell adapter for this model? Is the adapter frayed? When the adapter is plugged in to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Does the system overheat? Does the battery get very hot? If so, remove the battery and let it cool down to room temperature for about 2 hours and then try connecting and charging the battery.
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1G6xT8d
Restart and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS and the battery health(if available).
Remove the battery and check the battery health meter by pressing the battery gauge.
If the battery is old and is not durable, then you could get the battery replaced. 
Assuming there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a battery (if in stock) - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
You could also get the battery from a 3rd party Dell parts seller - http://bit.ly/1tq2f31
My personal suggestion, is that, if you are using the system in one place, then you could continue using the system with the adapter plugged in - as a desktop machine and that you could invest your money on a new machine.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

I have an eee pc netbook (Windows XP Home) and can't get the battery to charge. At this point I can't even turn the machine on. The A/C adapter plugs in fine and the blue light on the adapter stays on. Every so often when I plug the adapter in a message box will pop-up saying I'm running on battery mode and sometimes if I giggle the cord, the message box will say a/c mode. My first thought is that there is possibly a short in the cord (?). This is my first laptop, so I don't have a lot of experience with batteries. Could it be possible I need a new battery? I've had this for a couple of years now. Normally when I use it, I run it plugged in so as not to run the battery down.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

Two things come to mind.

It may be the DC socket connector that you plug the charger into. (especially because you say it changes when you wiggle it)

Also, have you tried running the computer without the battery plugged in, with just the charging adapter, to see if that works? That would resolve a faulty battery question.

Hi.

I've bought Dell Xps 15,9550 and it's amazing, but the problem is I can't plug off the battery, and I use my laptop all the time "literally" and I was a little bit disappointed because I want to keep my battery in a good condition,untli I knew about Dell Command Configure Wizard, which gives you an option to change the way your battery is charging, and there are 5 ways: Standard Charge, Express Charge, AC Use, Auto Charge, Custom Charge, but I really don't know what's the best for my condition.
Like I said I use my laptop all the time and I'm afraid that if I kept the laptop charging while using it all the time, the battery may get in a bad condition.

Hi there, I have had my computer for about 5 years, and so when the battery finally stopped working, I figured it was time for a new one. I bought a new battery, and it works, however it won't charge. The port to charge my comptuer recently broke and I got that fixed, but now the new batterty won't charge. Are those two things related, or is there something I can do?
 

A:Battery Won't Charge

I would say it is possible that the power port is broken again, or not fixed properly the first time, if the battery puts out its charge it should be able to take a charge, meaning the circut boards onboard the battery should be good.

I recently purchased two battery's for different dell laptops. One laptop has a flashing red battery sensor light on the laptop. It keeps appearing but with the old battery it did not appear. I don't know what this means.
this laptop is a Dell XPS M148


The other laptop was working fine and then one day it did not detect the ac adapter so it would not charge. Then we believed that the battery had died because every time I unplugged the charger the laptop would instantly turn off. So I bought a new battery hoping that was the problem but it wasn't. The laptop still wont charge and every day the battery percent keeps decreasing. My dad thinks that the charge card is the problem, and it is the reason why the laptop won't charge.

Hi, my hp pavilion 15-n270sa won't charge, it wont even turn on unless i have the charger in. I checked hp assistant and it said my battery was undetected, I have reinstalled the battery driver many times, I have changed the battery 3 times, i have updated my BIOS and nothing seems to work. Please help

The SMART chip inside the battery is like other electronics...it can fail for no apparent reason. You have a dead, dead battery that needs replacement. Are you under warranty?

Recently my Pavilion 10-n000na x2 has refused to charge when the device is powered on. When I attach the charger to the USB-c port the LED indicator light stays white and does not turn orange (charging) and the power indicator in windows task bar shows battery power only and no AC power. When the device is powered down and plugged in it does appear to charge, albeit with increasing reluctance. Occasionally when attaching the power cord when the system is running I will get a windows device popup advising the the USB device I have just attached could not be recognised. This device is still under warranty and both the device and powere cord seem to be in good condition. I am unable to contact HP support as they are only available during hours when I am at work.

My HP pavilion does not take charging after 80% and sometimes the charging light starts blinking. It shows plugged in , not charging.

A:My HP pavilion 15 notebook does not charge after 81%

Have you tried a battery diagnostic either in the UEFI diagnostics (F2 as you power on) or in the HP Support Assistant running from Windows? Stopping at 81% seems like it may be a dead power cell in the battery. Can we have the full model number of the laptop and an idea how old the battery is? Original?

I have a Acer E5-575G Notebook. I read instructions of charging the battery in User Manual , but I was confused. User Manual says that "Not discharge or charge the battery to its extreme". On the other hand says that "Use AC Power whenever possible, reserving battery for mobile use". These two statements are antithetical. Because If I use AC power whenever possible, in fact I am charging the battery to its extreme.

Okay so I have a 6 month old G51-35 Laptop that I've been using for gaming. Then earlier this morning when I was playing, the battery went down to 25%. I plugged it in and it didn't charge. I wondered why, and then I thought the power in the outlet was just not flowing so I'll just plug it into a different one later, and as soon as it hit 10% I panicked. I kept searching up solutions, but nothing popped up. So I then told my brother, by the time the laptop was at 1%, and he did some tests on the laptop. A couple hours later he told me that he doesn't know what the problem is, and so I started really freaking out. I searched up the prices for a new battery pack, but there wasn't anything for the g51-35. I then looked at the laptop prices, and it was a whole load of bull because the laptop itself cost $559. My parents would kill me if they found out, but I don't know what to do next. I think the laptop is overheated, but I don't have the tools to be able to clean it. Please help. Thanks.

Run the HP Battery health test in the HP Support Assistant. It will read the data in the battery like the number of cycles...like odometer on a car and also the health of each cell. The most likely thing is that the battery needs replacement. They do not last forever.

I have a Vaio VGN-NR120E, it's about 3 years old and it's been a while since the new battery started to die (it lasts about 15 minutes when working on just battery). I got a new battery just yesterday, and it was working OK, but when I went to plug the computer to the AC for charging, it reads "plugged in, not charging". I've been looking around the web and see a lot of people have the same problem, but their solutions haven't worked for me. I've tried uninstalling/installing the ACPI compliant control battery thing, shuting down my laptop and taking battery out/in in many different combos, but nothing's working.

When I put the old battery in (which still charges, but as I said only lasts about 15 minutes), it charges normally.

Hello,

I've looked through the archives a little and haven't found anything about this topic, so I thought I would ask. The battery charges just fine with the computer off, but with the computer on, the little battery icon flashes on and off once the battery gets to a lower level. What that level is I don't really know. Also, and I'm afraid of the response to this, but I have to position the A/C adapter cord to a certain angle to get a good connection. I've tried cleaning the contacts to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
 

A:Battery will charge with computer off only

Perhaps two problems. The positioning of the cord means something wrong with it or the plug on the laptop. The charging problem might be a problem with the charging circuit in the laptop (MB). Would be nice to blame it all on the laptop plug, but not sure we can do that.

Hello Laith mate sounds very much like the charging circuitry has gone south. First up I would check the terminals for signs of wear or arcing or straight forward damage. If there are no visible signs extrenally you may have to go looking inside the machine to see if there are any signs of scorching on the PCB's or dry joints.

You may need a multimeter to test the rails in that circuit too.

I sent it back and got a new one and also bought a new power chord. The battery and new power chord worked fine for two months. Last week the battery drained completely again (while plugged into AC chord).

Again I bought a new battery (extended life this time) and bought a docking station. I am now faced with the new battery drains everytime I use it. The power chord does not charge it. The docking station does not charge it either. I would like some questons answered:

Is it normal for the pc to have to be ON for the battery to be charged?

Does anyone know if there is any indication that the power chord is plugged in while the battery is installed? When on AC only, it shows plug - When battery installed (on battery only or with AC chord) computer shows on battery power.

Do the external battery charger units really work? this may be my only way of recharging my battery if not through the pc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop. Just yesterday, I was using it on battery, which was at full charge when I took it off AC Power.

About a month ago, I had the battery replaced, because my old one provided me with a charge lasting only 30 minutes, and for a college student, it is not easy to drag around the power adapter everywhere I go.

It has been running fine until today. From what I can tell, the light that goes on when the battery is charging does not come on when the computer is on, but when it's off it comes on.

Everything I've checked says my laptop battery is "performing normally" and what not.

I highly doubt It's the outlet that I am using, as I've been using it for 3 days with no problem.

The last thing I have to check is my power pack, but I don't just have another one lying around.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi all !
I apologize, as I'm sure there are quite a few similar posts, but I haven't had success with some of the standard remedies, so I figured I would start a new post.

Computer:
Asus laptop running windows 8

Problem:
Laptop powers on and runs fine, but the battery will not charge. When I initially boot up, the battery icon looks like it is charging, but then stops. At any time when hovering over the battery icon, it says plugged in, charging, but it never charges. It is currently at 0%.

Things I have tried:
I have tried a different charger.
I have tried to uninstall the windows acpi drivers
I have tried to uninstall asus branded battery drivers
I have tried rebooting, shutting down and pulling the battery, and hot swapping the battery.

Details and things leading up to this:
My battery has been functioning fine, and has been holding a charge nicely, it is about 2 years old. I recently had my laptop power off unexpectedly a couple times (probably due to heat), which led to me to not being able to power it on at all. I disconnected the battery and power cord, held the power button down to discharge it, and then it powered back on just fine. In the process of tinkering around, I accidentally wiggled the RAM chip loose, which caused the laptop to not boot up, but that was resolved by getting the ram chip back into place (probably irrelevant, but i figured i would call it out).

Actually, this happens to me on occasion with a similar laptop. Try unplugging the power cord from the outlet and from your computer for about thirty seconds and then plug it back it back in. If it doesn't start working after doing that three times, restart your computer. That usually fixes it for me.

It charges up to 60.15%, then discharges to 60%. acpi -i shows that the battery is only being charged to 60% of its full capacity, as well. However, it Windows, shows this charge as 100%.

Won't charge either battery. Will run with battery in or out. Ran fine many months ago with NiMH battery. Didn't use it for many months. Now the above problems. Any suggestions?
 

A:ThinkPad won't charge battery

You have to use the same type of laptop battery as the original battery. You might have damaged the charging circuits

I have two Lenovo Y40-70 computers that I purchased within a couple weeks of each other.  They came with Windows 8.1 but I upgraded to Windows 10. A few months ago, I noticed that my computer battery meter was reading 100% for an hour.  I continued to work unplugged until the battery died while still reading 100%.  I recharged and the battery again read 100% for more than a couple hours, then died.  So the battery lifetime is as good as always, but the reading is not right.  When I reboot, it still reads 100%. Strangely, the second system, whcih I had not used for a while, was OK, but a few days later, it started doing the same thing (though it was reading 87%, the charge when the computer last worked right.  I suscpect that this happened after a critical update, which the second system went through later. Recently, I downloaded from the Lenovo website the newer power management software on both computers, and it did not help. Then I noticed the Battery recall so downloaded the "Lenovo Battery Utility 2015" to see if my system was afffected by the problem.  When I run the utility, I get the mssage "No Battery Detect."  So it would appear that there may be an issue with the software detecting the batter. Since I can't know the state of the battery (it appears to not want to recharge until it's empty, I gues because it thinks it's 100% charged), I cannot count on this computer when it's not plugged in. Now I ...

Hello! I have a question that has been bothering me for a while, my dad just bought a Toshiba Laptop Satellite A-135 with Celeron M (basic entry level) which the battery only last about 1.5-1.75 hours, is that normal?, I've seen some Toshiba with Centrino last over 4 hours (maybe more, not sure). I heard the centrino CPU's are much more efficient with the Battery duration, I believe is not a brand problem but my questions are:

1-The charge of the battery depends on the low energy consume CPU or the cells on the battery it self? or both?

2-In case the answer is just the battery, can I just upgrade my dad's battery Laptop to make it last longer?

3-If CPU matters, which is the best on that matters? C2D? Turion64x2? CentrinoDuo?

Thanks!
 

A:How long does Battery Charge last?

This all depends on how many cells it has , and how the computer is used. It can be 1.5 to 4 hours, but 1.75 of steady use is about average.
There are a bunch of tricks on the website for reducing the power consumption, thus lengthening the time that the battery provides power. Look for battery power management.
This is, however, why the Toshiba Satellite is a lower cost laptop, than the Toshiba Tecra and other Toshiba laptops.

A 9 cell battery will give much longer power life than a 4 cell or 6 cell... but the cost is remarkably higher.

This is on a Dell Latitude C600.

The problem is that the battery suddenly just stopped working. It will no longer charge at all no matter how long I leave the computer on with the battery inside.

I know that when a battery is dying it will show it by not holding the charge for a long period of time. The problem here is that one day the laptop was working fine on the battery and then the next day it was completely dead. Which is odd because the battery is about 7 months old.

Any ideas?

I don't wanna spend money to fix the laptop because its just not worth it, this thing is old.
Replacing a battery seems like a better idea because its only 30 or 40 bucks on ebay.

This is a dell battery that I bought from ebay about 7 months ago. The first battery slowly died but it still holds a 10 minute charge. I assumed all batteries crap out in this manner.

Also what is battery reconditioning and can that be done on the laptop itself or is that done with special hardware for charging and discharging batteries.

Hey guys,

I need your help, i bought a genuine battery for my laptop Toshiba Satellite A500, but it doesn't say much information on the manual so I want to know how long I need to charge up the battery for the first time?

Do I need to put the battery on my laptop and switch on the adapter to charge it up without switch the laptop on?

When I am using the laptop, do you know what is the per cent when the battery get low that I need to charge it up?

Is it ok to charge the battery when the battery goes to near 10% or more when I'm using the laptop?

And do I have to charge the battery 4 times in one day?

I need to be careful as I don't want to damage the laptop battery that wont last to a year if i am not being careful.

Thanks in advance
 

A:Charge a battery for the first time

All of my laptops have a icon in the navigation area that shows battery status including charging.

I would just install the new battery, connect the power supply and run the laptop using power for a day or leave plugged in and on over night.
