Warning battery cannot be identified. System cannot charge the battery.

Q: Warning battery cannot be identified. System cannot charge the battery.

Hi,
When I switch on my laptop today, I got the warning "Warning battery cannot be identified. System cannot charge the battery." If I plugin my adapter, laptop is running on AC power, if I remove the plugin, laptop is turned off. I have downloaded latest BIOS update but still the problem persists.
Details: Dell Inspiron 3521, Windows 10, latest BIOS V14.
Please help!

Thanks,
C.S Harsha

A: Warning battery cannot be identified. System cannot charge the battery.

Is the battery OEM or an aftermarket battery? How old is the battery? I know of Windows 7 OS having issues with recognizing some batteries and were relatively easy to fix. I do not know if it carried over to Windows 10. I will have to look up the article to find any relevance.

Hello DELL COMMUNITY,
I can't believe this is an unsolvable issue...
my Studio XPS1340 isn't that old...
and my battery was replaced by warranty a little over a year ago...
it was charging fine...then suddenly, when I rebooted, I got:

WARNING: The battery cannot be identified.This system will be unable to charge this battery.Press Any Key to ContinuePress <F2> 2 times to enter SETUPPress <F12> and Any Key to enter Boot Menu
Do I just need to replace the battery?

Press and hold the power button of your computer for 10-15 seconds to drain the residual power. 
Release the power button
Keep the battery out for atleast 2 - 3 hours.
Then insert the battery and charge it overnight with the system powered off.
Insert the battery in and connect the AC adaptor.
Then power on the computer and see if it works.

If the issue still persists, you can update the BIOS of the computer.
Note: Make sure the ac adapter is connected and the battery is charged 10% or above to update the BIOS. Also, disconnect all the external peripherals before updating the BIOS. All the programs should be closed and documents saved.

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.
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...
i would love to get this problem solved. I'm using a PA-12 family adapt... Read more

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!!!
Thanks,

Hi

I recently replaced the BIOS battery in my 8 year old PC, which I pulled out the garage after 2 years. When I first switched it on I got the warning - no big surprise given the age of the PC. I did ask how fresh the battery stock was when I bought the new battery, and was assured it should be fine.

Having replaced the battery I'm still getting the message about low battery voltage. I think it unlikely the new battery is faulty (but have no way to check it)...any ideas?

The PC is a Dell Dimension 8300 running latest SP of XP if that helps

Thanks

Rick

A:[SOLVED] low battery voltage warning - new battery!

Googling 'Dell Dimension 8300 low cmos battery voltage warning' gets some historical (and hysterical in some cases) anecdotes about this issue.


I'd suggest you power off, pull plug, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds, open case, pull cmos battery, clean cmos battery socket with a q-tip and some isopropyl (a SMALL amount), allow to dry, wipe battery contact surfaces CLEAN, reinsert battery, close case, plug it in and power up.

Hello. I have a 3yr old Toshiba Satellite laptop that I use every day, on avg. 8 hrs per day for school. The battery used to last about 2.5 hours without needing charging. In the past couple weeks, it only seems to last about an hour before needing to be charged.

Even more troublesome is its action when the charge is gone. I have set the power settings to pop up a notification message at 22% battery level and take no action, then at 10% battery level, pop up another message THEN go in to hibernate. However, last week it would give me only about 20 seconds' notice of a critical battery level, then it would hibernate. It wouldn't give me any notice before the critical level.

Now, it has taken to just hibernating, with no warning notice whatsoever. I could keep it plugged in all the time, but my concern is there's something more at issue that will get worse over time. I don't need any crashes at finals time.

Any suggestions? Could the battery need replacing? Thanks.
 

A:Battery drains in 1hr; No low battery warning before hibernate

Li Ions really start to lose capacity at 2 years. By 3 years, they can easily be at 50% of their original capacity.

I'd go for a new battery.

When I turn it on it says 163 - Time and Date not set - There is no option in bios to set date Non-System disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready - Bios cannot detect hard drive So the question is if the RTC Battery is weak or dead can it cause above issues Thanks Chris

A:Question about RTC Battery (CMOS Battery) and System Errors

CWILLIAM83 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!The answer is actually -- yes and no. A weak or dead CMOS battery will prevent the BIOS settings from being saved when you power off the PC. If the default settings work OK with your hardware, then the only thing you would notice is that the clock resets. But, if you customized your settings to see the hard drive, then the default settings might not see it. After you replace the battery, you would have to go through configuring the settings-- again.Good Luck

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.

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.

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 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. In short I have a new battery and charger and an indicator light that shows charging but it does not actually charge. Any ideas?

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!
 

A:eee pc battery won't charge

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.

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 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. I'm not sure what is though and what I should do.

Not sure if this is a Vista thing or a Dell thing but the computer (Insperon 1545) will not charge the battery when plugged into the pwr adapter. When booting there is a message that says the wrong adapter is attached and to use the correct one. Also in the tray when I mouse over the battery icon it says "Plugged in, not charging". I have tried a second pwr cord without success. I have read forums suggesting that Dell uses a 3 wire cord and that the middle pin is there to tell the computer what adapter is attached. The computer runs fine when plugged in to the adapter it just will not share with the battery. I am trying to make the computer ignore the "incompatibility" and allow the battery to charge. Any suggestions?

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.

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.

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.

So, I've had my computer for approximatly 2 years, and it wtill works really well with almost everything. However, about a month ago, my computer stopped charging. Meaning that to use it, it would have to be plugged in CONSTANTLY. After a while I got tired of this (and I know it's not great on my computer, either.) So, I bought a new battery, which worked for about 2 days, then had the exact same problem. I'm really irritated because my computer says on startup that "my battery isn't holding maximum capacity," and that I should replace it. However, this has obviously not helped, and I'm beginning to think that the battery isn't actually the problem. Has anyone dealt with this in the past, or know what is wrong with my computer/battery?

Hello,
I have an Acer Aspire 5534-1096, and the battery will not charge, no matter what I try. If I plug the charger in without the battery inserted, the laptop will run perfectly fine. But, as the battery will not charge and is now dead, if I insert the battery with the AC adapter plugged in the laptop will power on for a few seconds, then will just die. I have tried replacing the battery; the issue persists. I know that the AC adapter works because the laptop will run solely off of it, and it will charge the battery of another laptop perfectly fine. I've tried reinstalling the BIOS with the latest version and holding the power button to release excess power. Nothing seems to fix it.
Do you think this could be a motherboard problem? I have removed the keyboard and shell, and there seems to be a cable in front of the DC power jack which says "TO I/O". Could it be an issue with that cable? I'm all ears, so if any of you has a suggestion that might work, that would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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.

It's the Lenovo Energy Management settings.Go to Control Panel >> Power Options >> Change plan settings >> Change advanced power settings >> Lenovo Energy Management >> Enable Lenovo Energy Management.Change the battery setting from "Optimized Battery Health" to "Maximum Battery Life." By only partially charging the battery, the software is prolonging the lifespan of the battery itself.  This is true of all laptop batteries.  If you often leave your computer plugged in, it's best to keep this setting enabled.  If you can anticipate your mobile useage in advance, you can just turn off the feature at appropriate times.It would be nice if the setting was easier to change.  If somebody knows an easier way, feel free to post it.I suppose you could always put a shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\Energy Management\Energy Management.exe" on your start screen, taskbar or desktop.  Alternatively, you could put a shortcut on the desktop, assign a hotkey to it, and super-hide the shortcut (a little more advanced).

Just bought a Surface Pro 4 on sale but Christmas is 6 weeks away. Is there enough charge on the battery to last that long in the box (draining li-ions below 20% is not supposed to be good for them) or should I open it charge it and then pack it up for Christmas?

Hi,
I recently bought a new battery for my laptop Inspiron-15 N5010. But the battery stops to charge after about 89% and in the notification i see that it says "89%available(plugged in, not charging)" . What could be the possible reasons?? I set the settings in POWER OPTIONS to default also.
PS: I bought original battery only with original dell seal and packet. But I bought it in Snapdeal online E-commerce site.

A:My new laptop battery does not charge after 89%

Does the system correctly identify the AC adapter (F2 at powerup to check) or does the adapter show "unknown"?

Good evening.
The problem with the battery of my XPS 17 L702X started some months ago. My house lost power 3 or 4 times in 2 minutes while my notebook was connected to the electricity grid. Since then my notebook doesn't recharge the battery. The message is: "plugged in, not charging". I've bought a new battery, but the problem persists.
Thank you for any help.

A:Battery charge problem

Hi ROADMAP,
Are you using the original Dell adapter for this system model? Is the adapter frayed? Does the adapter stay in firm when plugged in or does it fall off easily?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter connected. Also, wiggle the adapter jack at the end and check if the adapter status changes at any point.
Test with another power adapter if possible.
If the port is loose, then the DC port needs to be replaced otherwise, the adapter needs to be replaced.

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).

Any ideas? I feel like it is a software or driver issue since I've been experie... Read more

I just bought my new battery for my laptop and can't get it to charge.  I am working on Windows 8.1 system on the computer and I am getting frustrated that the battery is not charging.  I have found settings on the computer for battery which states when it charges and when it doesn't.  The options to choose are do nothing, sleep, hibernate or shut down.

X1 Carbon, gen 1.Windows 7 and Debian.Battery won't change past 60%. In windows, it shows the battery as 100%. The Battery Manager software says that the battery is in poor condition, and can only store 60% of its original full charge capacity. If I charge it to 100% in windows, and boot Linux, it shows that the battery is actually charged to 60%. 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%. It only runs for about 2 hours (being 1.5 months old). In the beginning, it could run for 4-5 hours. I suspect that a software/firmware update has put a limit on the battery charge level. Is there anything I can do to get the battery back at full capacity? 2 hours simply isn't enough for an ultrabook...Martin

I have a Chromebook that won't charge and the battery is dead.  When I plug its power adapter in, the charging light does not come on and I've had it plugged in for 3 days and the Chromebooks battery is still dead.  I tried using another power adapter from another Chromebook of the same model.  The charge light did not come on and it did  not charge the battery.  When I plugged the power adapter from the Chrombook with the dead battery into the other Chromebook, the charging light came on and it appeared to charge that Chromebook, so I'm pretty sure the problem is with the battery.  I had this same issue with this Chromebook last fall and I believe I had to replace the battery.  What would be causing this Chromebook to be going through batteries like this?

A:Chromebook Battery Won't Charge

if you are using the chromebook with the ac plugged in without removing it .. thats cause the battery damage .. you need to charge the battery at 10%  and you can take the ac off when the battery charges 95%   thats the safest way to charge the battery

As the title said, my dads ASUS A52F refuses to charge. It dosen't charge anything. I bought a battery some months ago on eBay, didn't work. I bought another one from eBay(not the same seller) and the same result happened, it didn't want to charge. Note that it dosen't charge the original battery either. Is this a problem with the computer or the batteries?

A:Battery not wanting to charge

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.
