NEW DELL BATTERY NOT DETECTED WINDOWS 10

Q: NEW DELL BATTERY NOT DETECTED WINDOWS 10

Hi All,
I have an older Vostro 2420, my battery finally gave up the ghost, and I purchased a new one.
The old battery had a problem that it was not detected, whatever, it no longer held a charge, so I bought a new one.
I have the latest version of Windows 10, version 1607, X64. The laptop has been updated with all of the latest Dell drivers. I've uninstalled and installed the battery driver and charger drivers. I've also done a power hard reset.
Good news, is my new battery holds a charge. That is, I can charge it up, and its good for many hours without being plug-in... Great! its a new battery!
Bad news, Windows 10 can't detect the battery.
I trolled the interweb looking for youtube video's and other hints, done everything.
My trusty multimeter shows that the connection to the battery works, and has continuity.
Any ideas?

I just bought a new replacement dell inspiron 1545 laptop battery,and works with power supply disconnected from computer,however it shows x in battery icon,and reads no battery detected,this is a windows 7 system and a dell laptop,any suggestions on how to get my pc to read or recognize this new battery? it also shows that it cannot read model number of battery during startup so no charging can be done??
 

A:new dell laptop battery,not being detected

1. If it is a non Dell battery it is quite common that some cheaper alternatives are not detected
2. Go F2 setup on post (think it is F2 on a dell - enter BIOS scroll across to power options look for battery learning function or something similarly worded
Enter that and see if there is a choice for enable etc.
If so select, save and exit
Reboot and test

I was given a 7-year old Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop to do a clean reinstall of Windows XP.

The battery in it is Dell-branded and appears to be the same one that came in it.

The charger works fine and kept the laptop powered during the entire setup/install/update process.

After I was done, I discovered in the power options and in the taskbar that the battery isn't being detected.

I examined the battery and the contacts and didn't see any damage or corrosion.

I wanted to update the BIOS, but I couldn't because of the "no battery detected" issue.

I realize a 7-year old battery likely no longer holds a charge, but why isn't it being detected?

I've never run into this issue before, so I'm stumped.

Anyone have any ideas?

My Inspiron 17R just had a Windows 10 update.  Immediately afterward (by coincidence or ??), the battery would not function.  If I do not have the adapter connected, it is dead.  According to the BIOS, it is not a Dell battery.  Well, yes it is, original to the machine.  Meanwhile, the battery meter shows at 100% and plugged in.
Any ideas?

I've installed Windows 7 RC on my old Acer TravelMate 4001 notebook. Installation went fine, all drivers are working, but only one is missing - ACPI driver. In other words, Windows doesn't know, that there's a battery in the computer and that's quite a problem for a notebook. It's problem with drivers, not with the battery. If drivers are fine and battery us dead, there would be an icon in toolbar saying 'battery is dead'. But i got no icon, no advanced power options, no 'time reamining' indicator, nothing.
In windows XP everything was OK, but since I started using Window Vista and Windows 7 - no battery found and one unknown ACPI device in device manager.

I've searched for help many times on internet without any success, I'm asking here, maybe somebody experienced the same problem and found some solution. Thanks any advice

A:No battery detected with Windows 7

Hi Necroman,

If there is an 'Unknown' ACPI device in Device Manager has it got a yellow tag/exclaimation on it? If so try right-click then Update driver software to see if anything gets detected on Windows Update.

Hope this helps

Hello!

I bought new original Toshiba battery for my M800-107, since my old one has lost a half of its capacity. The problem is, when I plugged this new battery in Win7 says "Battery connected, No charging" and after that "No Battery Is Detected". When I unplug AC, laptop works, but when I plug it in again, still no charging (no existence of the battery). The red battery charging led is blinking, when AC is unplugged, lighting when AC connected. I have tried everything I found on the internet to solve this problem, but nothing worked :-(

I also tried Ubuntu to see if Win is the problem, but the same problem occured.

I have bios v. 5.00.

Don't you know any solution? Maybe - new BIOS if there was any newer?

Thanks in advance.

Can someone help me with this problem? So I just received my brand new Dell Inspiron 15 3000 and the battery is not charging. It says it's "Plugged In, Charging" but it never goes up and stays at 0%. At first I thought I just need to plug it in for several hours but it's been 5 hours now and still the battery stays at 0%. I tried running the BIOS Diagnostics just to see if there are problems and there's none. The battery status says everything is running normally and the Battery State says it's Idle. I tried draining the flea power several times, removing and reattaching the battery, but to no avail. I'm getting really frustrated and I'm really close to throwing this laptop back to Dell. 
I read somewhere that I have to update the BIOS but it won't update unless the battery is charged at least 10%. Someone also suggested that Windows 8.1 is causing the problem. I haven't even started using this laptop and it's already giving me a *** ton of problems. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys! :)

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%)

Hello guys,

I recently bought a Dell laptop. Been a month of usage only and on the last use I allowed the battery to be drained fully since i did not have my charger with me. Upon charging and switching on again, the system had a boot configuration error.

I sent the laptop back to the supplier since i was still under warranty. They said this was not covered under warranty because i allowed the battery to be drained and i should not have allowed that and as such would have to pay for it to be fixed.

Are they correct or are they trying to dupe me?

Hi i have a XPS M140 dell laptop, and bought a new battery, wich came charged to 40%, the instructions said that i should discharge the battery to 2% and then chargeit to 100% for first time.

I used the laptop withouth cord until it was 3%, then i plugged it but the amer light that should appear it is not when i plug the laptop with the battery installed, then i check the energy administrator (i have xp and lubuntu, and it both was the same) and it said "charging" but it stayed in 3%, i let it more than 12 hours plugged but never charged the battery, it is still in 3% and the light of the battery doesnt turn on.

I dont know if the battery is bad, because it worked when had charge, or is maybe the laptop that is not charging.

Is there a war to check if this port is charging electricity to the battery? i have a multimeter and i know how to open this laptop. Any information would be helpful as i havent been able to found information on this.

and also is there a way to know with the multimeter if the battery is allowing energy to charge it?

Hey guys,

I've had this Sony Vaio VGN-CS190 for almost 10 months now, and I've recently decided to upgrade it's "Vista Home Premium" setup to the new Windows 7 RC.

I've installed and had the most basic features already supported. I finally decided to attempt to get the "fn" keys and the top "volume/media" control sliders to work (Touch Sensitive).

After downloading the drivers and Shared Library and installing each, restarting, install, restart, etc; I only have the volume part of the the "fn" keys to work. The top sliders light up, but have to no effect on the computer.

The brightness "fn" keys and top volume slider are the only real things I need, as I do not use the volume, network, and monitor "fn" keys.

I've talked to Sony tech support and they've said to wait for October for the Windows 7 drivers to be released, and that there are generic drivers released by Microsoft.

They wouldn't tell me where these drivers are located, and was hoping that a Support Wiz could help me out on this one. I'm considered a nerd, so I know my way around the computer and can do advanced operations, I just need to know how to fix this problem.

Thank,

A Dell customer service advisor recently suggested I buy a new battery to fix a problem with my battery not being recognised at system startup nor charging when the adapter is plugged in.
Despite my AC adapter being the original adapter that shipped with my computer, the new battery still fails to charge. I receive a message informing me that the AC adapter type cannot be recognised (quickset). Furthermore, in what can only be described as an outrageous step, this message informs me that Dell will throttle my machine ("your computer will run more slowly") and then battery will not charge.
Clearly there is an error in the adapter hardware (most likely related to the well known one wire technique for battery verification)  meaning it cannot be recognised by the computer. I was therefore incorrectly informed to buy a new battery that neither solves the problem nor is of any use as it cannot be charged. Is this how Dell treats their customers?
I propose two solutions which Dell could offer me:
1. Send me a new, working 150W adapter compatible with my XPS 17 as a gesture of goodwill following the incorrect sale of a new battery at great expense which failed to solve the problem.
2. Provide a way to circumvent the faulty charger verification process. This is crucial for two reasons. Firstly the adapter is the original adapter that came with my computer so to verify its authenticity is not necessary. Secondly, Dell has zero right (non, whatsoever) to force consumers ...

Hi there! I've been having a problem with my charger for a while now but it wasn't serious until recently. A month or two ago, my charger went from working completely normally to suddenly not being recognised. This wasn't a big deal, however, because by holding the charger a certain way to the left (kind of twisted) or bringing it underneath the laptop, it would charge like normally. For the past few weeks, however, a notice has been popping up saying

"The AC power adaptor type can not be determined" and then that follows up with a message underneath that stating that I should use a dell charger (this is the original dell charger we got with the laptop)"

This message however didn't matter back then because, by twisting the charger a bit, it would charge and so the message was irrelevant and would only pop up when the charger was plugged in and not twisted (as far as I can remember)

Over the past couple of days, though, i've noticed for my battery sign to sometimes randomly change to an X and, when you hover over it, it says "no battery detected." It will then randomly, a second or two or a few minutes later switch to "plugged in, not charging" and then to "plugged in, charging"; fluctuating randomly and for different intervals of time between these signs. This as well wasn't much of a problem as my laptop was still charging at times and therefore I knew it wouldn't run out.

Now, however, the... Read more

What is the exact model of Dell laptop you have? Look underneath on the label for Model information
For Dells of that time period, you must use a genuine Dell replacement AC adapter or you will get the reduced performance at startup message.... the Dell adapters so I have read, have a chip inside that informs the BIOS of the laptop that they are indeed, genuine Dell adapters.

Read about this issue here- and especially about the little test you can do before your power is all gone- you should do it just once, and I think you will get the "Unknown" message....

http://www.laptop-junction.com/toast/content/inside-dell-ac-power-adapter-mystery-revealed

Note that there is more than just one thing that can be wrong- the motherboard, the adapter chip, the power jack.... Please do NOT attempt the adapter repair at that site.... The power jacks can be replaced by a good repair shop that does soldering on motherboards.

test yours and if you do need a Dell AC adapter they can still be found but it does take some hunting since a LOT of helpful sales sites claim "Genuine Dell Replacements" but I have tried some of those and they did not work but when a real Dell AC adapter was connected, that BIOS message disappeared.

look on the label of the LAPTOP and see what AC Adapter watt rating ....ex: 65watt or 90w..... yours calls for and purchase the correct model.

Hi everyone,

My laptop battery seemed like it had loads of life left in it, but one day it just suddenly stopped working and my laptop started saying "no battery is detected". I contacted the insurance people and they came over to check that the battery was dead and that it wasn't a problem with my laptop itself. They confirmed that I just needed a new battery and sent me a new one. Now with the new battery in it is saying the exact same thing ("no battery is detected"), and only working off power from the charger. If I take the battery out and then put it back in again, the laptop says "plugged in and charging" for a few seconds before switching back to saying "no battery is detected" and completely ignoring the battery.

I know that the problem must be with the laptop and not the battery, so does anybody know how I can fix this problem?

I have a Dell Vostro 3650 running Windows 8.1 The battery was giving me about 30 minutes battery life so I bought a new, 9 cell, OEM battery.The "Probl

It will not give me a notification of when the battery is going to die (Except the physical red button lighting on the front of the computer).

In terms of battery life, the battery works fine. I get hours and hours of battery life so I know the battery is functioning properly. In the BIOS, it is detected as battery performing regularly. I don't know why it is not showing the time. I tried uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI drivers in device manager and rebooting but nothing changed. I was a able to SHORTLY borrow a similar laptop to mine, but running windows 7. The time remaining was being displayed.

Check the pins on the battery as well as the laptop to see if any are bent. one of the pins will be used to measure voltage from the battery to the mobo, if its bent it may cause this issue as its not detecting any voltage.

I bought a new ProBook 4530s less than 2 weeks ago. It is running Windows 7 64 bit. I was using it today on battery power when it shut down unexpectedly.  Apparently the battery was low.  I was listening to music and did not hear any low battery warning.  Certainly, there was no popup message.  I plugged in the charger and restarted the computer.  Now I see an icon on the bottom right of the screen that apparently means No Battery is Detected.  The yellow light on the left side of the laptop next to the power cord is flashing.  I did some research online and tried removing and replacing the battery several times.  No change.  Originally, I was unable to start the computer from the battery at all.  Now I find that I have enough power that I can start from the battery, so it must be getting some power in spite of the icon.   I have now restarted several times, plugged in and on battery.  I always get the No Battery message and the flashing yellow light.   I have looked at Device Manager, and it says that the battery is fine.  Please help!!

Hi there My new (day old) HP Envy Notebook won't recognise the battery.  It's the model with the inbuilt battery so can't get at it. Nothing I do in the settlings changes anything and the test battery thing comes back with not detected. Have charged the laptop for over a day but still no joy. Please help, I took a gamble with HP and I'd hate for this purchase to have been a waste of money. ThanksSharron

A:No Battery Detected

Not much to be done other than calling HP for support. We can't advise you to try to open the laptop. Can you still take it back to the place you bought it?

i have gateway laptop, with windows vista sp1,, i got a new battery and plugged it in, got x on battery status and shows 'battery not detected', battery is working as i can unplug ac line and computer still runs. did some research by google and found i should check device manager thur properties on computer, did so and found i couldnt open device manager, well, i have been thinking of doing a clean reinstall for some time now so i went ahead and did it. i am still having the same problem, so i did some more research and found that i should check bios to see that battery calibation is enabled and did so ,, it was disabled, when i switched it to enable, it went to the calibration and showed it had nothing to do and battery was showing not detected there as well. any ideas

Running Windows 7 pro, 64-bit and for some reason my laptop won't detect the battery. The laptop is just over a year old so hasn't been used that often, but it would be interesting to know why it won't detect the battery all of a sudden?

A:No battery is detected!

Could be the battery has failed, seldom is one given more than a year warranty. A couple other variables would be whether the AC adapter is the proper one or that the charging circuit or socket on the motherboard has a problem.

My PC only works when plugged into an outlet. I tried both the HP Diagnostics windows program and the UEFI (Bios level) diagnostic tools -- both just report that there is no battery present -- it is as if the internal battery just disappeared. I updated bios and other drivers; tried deleting and reinstallingthe Microsoft ACPI battery driver as well.  No fix. Took it to a local repair guy; he said just replace the battery but that doesnt make sense -- probably less than 200 hours of use on the PC and no noticeable battery problems or degradation before this abrupt stop.  And he would have to order the battery ($150) -- I don't want to pay for a new one just to find that wasn't the issue. Computer out of warranty; I called HP to find out how to send to HP for servicing but person on phone said "not a hardware Issue; this is a common problem" and wanted to charge me for phone support.   I dont mind paying for expertise but I don't want to pay for someone to walk me through fixes I've already done without fixing it... Any ideas?  Last think I want to do is spend hundreds on a non-fix.  While the PC is in great shape, it is a couple of years old at this point.  Has this laptop become a stationary desktop??? Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi,

From your statement above there only appears to be a couple of options: -

Replace the battery.Install the Dell Recommended Vista Power Management Settings software this could re-establish the battery status.Look here for it: -

A:no battery detected?

Could be a lot of reasons why it's not being detected.

First, what brand and model laptop and battery are you using? Also, when you charge the battery, does it get really hot really fast?

If the battery is heating up too fast, the battery is faulty, and you will probably need to replace it. But the problem could be a faulty sensor, bad connection, faulty connectors, or a faulty motherboard.

Hi,
I am writing this as I have hopelessly tried all methods found online without success.
I have an XPS 15 bought in France. I move to Singapore and my original DELL AC adapter was spoiled. So I went to the nearest store and bought a third party adapter. Everything works out fine for a while... Now, my laptop won't charge anymore (stuck at 90%). 
My laptop only turn on if it is plugged under ac adapter. When I unplug the ac adapter, my laptop turn off.
When I turn on my laptop it says "this battery charging is temporarily disabled, press F2 for entering BIOS Menu". In BIOS, under battery health it is said "this battery is temporarily disabled, please turn off the computer and try again when the unit is back to operational temperature" I have this problem systematically, my laptop is not heated.
I even bring it to a repair shop here in Singapore; but they do not even have the parts to test. 
Please help. 
I am willing to buy a new battery or new adapter, but I am not even sure if that's the problem.

Thank you

Hello,

Sorry for being away from posting on the forum since a long time, though I have been visiting the forum lot many times, without logging in - mainly through Google search. That shows how effective the website really is.

Since some time a very persistent error has been bothering me and I thought it best to come here and post the issue.

After my original battery for my Dell Studio 1555 32-bit computer died, I replaced batteries thrice, one after another (the computer is five years old).
The three replacement batteries were:
1. Dell - exact replacement 56 Wh
2. LB1 - matching specs but 48 Wh
3. Dell - exact replacement 56 Wh

Since the second replacement battery, the Low Battery Alarm has been disturbing me each time that:
1. The computer is restarted with the main power disconnected.
2. The main power jack is removed after a 100% charge.
3. The main power jack is removed anytime.

Since in the first place I never set this alarm manually, I am assuming there could either be a Dell specific registry issue with after-market batteries, though I don't understand why. Either way the irritant must go.

I checked Advanced Power Options under Power Scheme but found nothing that would give me a hint of what's wrong.

The alarm screenshot is attached.

Any help would be welcome.

A:False "Low Battery Alarm" with after-market battery - Dell Studio

Rule out the OS and Drivers by downloading a Linux LiveCD and booting from that See if you get the same errors/alarms/warnings.
If you do it could be a faulty charging circuit in your laptop. Check with Dell and see if they have a battery calibration tool. Sometimes completely running the battery flat a couple of times does a "reset" kind of thing.
Sorry I can't think of anything else just now.

To resolve this issue start the system connecting ?Power Adapter?. Wait till the system to boot completely and then go to ?Device Manager? then uninstall ?Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery? under battery option.
 
After uninstalling shutdown the system, remove ?Power Adapter? and then connect the power adapter, let the system boot completely and check if it is charging.
 
Hope this helps.

Hi,
My Satellite Pro C850 was purchased in March 2013. By December 2015 the battery would not hold a charge long enough. In December 2015 I bought a new genuine Toshiba battery from a reputable company cclonline.com. Now only 3 months later my laptop shows a red cross over the battery indicator. Unplugging the power lead still allows me to use the laptop but seemingly randomly the laptop hibernates/shuts down without displaying the reason. After this happens I have to plug the power lead in again to restart the laptop, although I can unplug it again later without the laptop dying. For purely personal reasons my power options are set to Never for all choices. All this does not stop me using the laptop, but it can be annoying when the laptop suddenly saves everything and shuts down.
Are Toshiba laptops susceptible to battery changes and not detecting new batteries?
Regards
Davy.

Hello,

I recently thought that it would be time for me to buy a new laptop battery for my Toshiba Equium A300D-13x since the current one is so old I roughly get 5-7 minutes charge out of it.

So I looked online and shopped around and the official Toshiba ones were ?140!, So instead i settled for a replacement that was roughly ?20 (cheapskate).

Anyway, the battery is the exact same model number to the official toshiba battery I have and is the exact same voltage 10.8V. However the battery will not be detected within the laptop?

Whats interesting is though the battery does power the laptop it just wont indicate to me how much remaining charge I have left. Also when plugged in to the AC it doesnt detect it, but looks as if it is charging the laptop as the light signifying that the AC is plugged in is on, and the battery indicator is orange (charging)

Does anyone else have this problem or know what I can do to fix this as i dont have the ?140 to buy a new battery.

Thanks.
Jamers

A:Equium A300D-13x - No Battery is detected

Hi

Did you have the same battery problems with the old, original battery?

From my experience there are many batteries from 3rd party suppliers but not all meets the standards even if the part number is the same?

But it looks that the battery is detected because the notebook can be powered on using the battery power? also the orange battery indicator show you that the battery would be charged.

However, I would recommend you checking the BIOS version.
From my knowledge BIOS update could help to solve problems with battery.

If it does not help you, I would recommend testing other batteries which you could order directly from an Toshiba ASP in your country? in such case you could be 100% sure that your battery is compatible and would work.

I took apart my laptop to fix something, and I connected the battery the the naked motherboard to test something, but I put it in backwards.
It was brief, but it caused an issue nonetheless.

I'm almost positive the battery itself is fine as it wasn't connected long enough to get any significant short-circuit damage and it reads fine on the multimeter.

Hi

I have a Sony Vaio SVF15N17CXB Fit 15A Flip 2-in-1 15.5" Touchscreen Laptop.

I can run it only plugged in to the wall. The battery icon in the taskbar shows a red X and has the words "No battery is detected" when you hover over it.

I have replaced the battery 2x (one was a used battery, the other new) and it has not fixed the issue.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Hello I recently bought a Yoga 900S and it was working fine for a day or two, but suddenly the battery symbol had an 'x' and it kept saying BATTERY NOT DETECTED. When that happened, my laptop would only stay awake for a few minutes or seconds then shut down. When I put it on charge, the 'x' was still displayed over the battery symbol but it wouldn't shut down, until a few days later when it would shut down even if it was on charge. So I didn't use my laptop for a day or two and then started using it again. For a few days, the problem was gone, but now it's back. I did recently update to Windows 10, but I don't know if that's what's causing the problem. Can someone please tell me what's wrong with my laptop? The problem is really annoying. Thanks

Purchased an Aspire V 15 Nitro( VN7-571G-50VG) and as I soon as I started it up it had "No battery is detected" on the battery icon and as soon as the power cord is disconnected it turns off so it can only stay on when its connected. I tried resetting the battery but it didn't work. Any ideas how else to fix this?

Hi, First you can try to update your BIOS to the latest version if you don't have the latest one. BIOSAcerUpdate KBC to V1.171.148.8 MB2015/03/20Download But I don't expect it would help. If you just purchased the notebook just bring it back because I don't think that it has anything to to with the software side. It could be that the battery is just not connected (just by mistake they forgot to connect the battery connector) or that the battery is defective. Either way I would bring the notebook back. I don't expect that you can turn on your notebook without the charger plugged in and if this is the case it clearly means that the issue is not software related.

I have a Lenovo Flex 2-15. It operates with or without the AC adaptor being plugged in, so I am quite sure it does have a battery. I could not determine how to display a battery level indicator or icon which is a common feature on most laptops. I just couldn't find such a thing on this machine. I loaded an app called "Lenovo Settings" (version 3.111.0.0). When I click on the Power Status tab, I see a battery icon with three dashes, a status messages "No battery Installed", and "AC adaptor is attached".  [ When I unplug the adaptor, it still says it is attached! ] So, several questions:   - Does this "Lenovo Settings" app really do anything? Is it compatible with the Flex 2-15?   - How do I see the battery status?   - Did I accidentally uninstall a utility? Thanks for all the help in advance.

Basically, my laptop's probably about 3 years old now, and as expected, the battery that came with the laptop reduced itself to a state of no charging. As a result, I bought myself a new battery because the laptop itself works perfectly fine. The first day I got the battery, I had the issue of the battery being not detected, but I fixed it through going into Device Manager, uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, and then scanning for hardware changes, and it worked an absolute dream, percentage and time remaining were spot on. I then didn't use the laptop for about a month, and when I turned it on, it will either give me "Plugged in and not charging" or "No battery is detected" and there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to which one appears... I thought it might just be a simple fix again my doing the uninstalling and scanning for changes, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything at all! It's an Advent 9915W that I'm running, with all the specs below.
Thanks in advance,

A:No battery is detected/Plugged in not charging

You may want to dust the connection between the comp and battery. The same process you did before may just might work again.

I have a recently purchased ASUS laptop as mentioned in title, and there seems to be issue after issue.

As mentioned in a previous thread, I had problems with my sound card popping a crackling. After updating my BIOS drivers, this fixed the problem.
Now I have a new problem.

Since updating the BIOS drivers, I've noticed that my battery icon shows an 'x' on the battery and says 'no Battery Is Detected' on mouseover. If I turn the computer off, disconnect the AC and try and turn it on again, it wont turn on at all.

I have tried going into Device Manager and uninstalling the two drivers under Battery and then reinstalling them, but this hasn't worked. I have seen solutions online that involve removing the battery and then adding it back, but the laptop I have has a non removable, built in battery.

What other options are available to me?

Try a new one and make sure it is installed correctly with printed info visible. If a new cmos battery doesn't work, the motherboard could be defective.

I recently opened up my new acer nitro v17 to install a SSD to move my OS onto. After placing everything back in order. The laptop will not turn on without the charger connected. When the charger is connected, the laptop turns on and indicates that the battery is at 88%, but once the charger is removed, everything shuts down. If anyone can help that would be great thanks. TL: DR - Battery detected, battery not charging, only runs off of charger

Hello,

I have an ACER Aspire 3680 laptop. About 1 year ago, I purchased an OEM battery (compatible based on number match) to replace the manufacturer's battery that had stopped charging. I installed the battery, plugged in the AC adapter and turned on the computer. Once fully booted, the battery icon said "Battery not found". The laptop works as long as it's plugged in to the AC adapter, but powers off immediately if the adapter is removed.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or a software issue. My thought is that it might be solved by updating a driver, but it could also be that the hardware that converts the AC to charge the batter is defunct.

I appreciate all suggestions!

I would not have bothered making an account here if I could have found a fix otherwise. The battery is not charging AND it is not detected. I want to stress this because I have seen a million and one webpages for batteries that were plugged in but not charging. Mine is not detected. I have checked my power settings, I have done a power drain (take out batter and adapter, hold power button), I have restarted, I have looked for updates, and I have uninstalled the two battery things in the device manager and restarted again. I did NOT do battery gauage reset because the battery is not detected (I have Windows 8, so Energy Manager rather than Power Manager). I have not touched the BIOS because I'm wary of anything else going wrong. I bought this laptop in December. It is quite new, still under warranty, and even though I use it every day, it is still good and not bogged down or worn down in any way. I have had multiple problems since buying it, even a few right out of the box (shame on you, Lenovo), all of which I was able to fix myself. I can't imagine why I would have whatever problem I am having right now. For a short while after this problem initially occurred, I was still able to unplug the laptop and move to another outlet. So it's like the battery was actually detected. But once the battery charge ran out, I couldn't unplug anymore without immediate shutdown. Considering everything I have already tried, is it possible that the battery is bad? Can anyone help... Read more

Hello,I know there is a few post on this particular issue and I will list what I have attempted to do.1. Deleting the charging driver (and also AC Adapter)2. Pulling the plug using windows+b+power3. Updating bios to latest.4. Checked all the wall outlets in my house.5. Used Hp Assist Center/Bios to check battery status.I keep hitting error 601 mainly and have hit error 502 on boot.  In the HP battery checker the both batteries are not detected which is weird.  It's like the battery is not plugged in because both batteries are grayed out, is there any reason why this should be?  I'm really hoping I dont have to replace the  battery or it is covered under the "battery recall" I saw on the hp site somewhere.  This laptop is hardly used by my mother as she really has only been using it for work for the past year-year and a half, I would say nothing over 200 charge cycles.Thank you!

You should have a warning displayed in Device Manager if the driver is not working right for battery detection. Try firing it up to see if you have any exclamation points or red Xs.

A:No Battery Is Detected error on ASUS Laptop

The laptop not being able to turn on from the battery is a hardware issue. There may also be a software issue in Windows, but missing drivers etc, will not stop a laptop from booting up from the battery to the BIOS. You can boot to the BIOS with no OS installed. The battery has likely failed and needs to be replaced, or its fully discharged and not being recharged. It should charge even if the laptop is off, as long as the power pack is plugged in. My ASUS and my ACER laptops will charge the battery when powered off and plugged in. Is this a new or second hand device? If it's new, I'd return it.

Hope someone have seen this and found a way of fixing it. The Thinkpad Yoga 14 was bought new from BestBuy, with Windows 10 already installed. A few days ago, after I finally allow Windows 10 to install the "update", the battery started to "disappear", ie the power icon has a "X" and with a message "No battery is detected". The battery driver has a June 21 date, a months after the purchase. So this must be the driver brought in by the Win10 update (note: this is not from Win7, Win8 etc to Win10, but an update of Win10). Removing and reinstalling battery driver did not fix the problem as the same driver is installed again. I also cannot roll back the version as Windows does not show any previous version. I also cannot "restore" as Windows does not actually restore the system: Windows shows the update still installed even after it was "restored" to a state prior to the "update". I also tried to install Lenovo's new power management driver. No help either.  Any suggestions, other than to returning the computer? This is for my son. He'll start his school right now! Thanks!
