Lower replcement laptop battery and adapter

Something I had not heard was to take out your battery when you are plugged into a wall outlet. If you are working on AC power, then it’s not necessary to have your battery in the laptop. Overcharging can also present problems for your laptop battery.
Another problem I know is that the cords on the dell inspiron 5160 battery packs get damaged causing the user to have to purchase a replacement cord. Make you purchase the correct wattage cord because using a higher wattage than what the laptop calls for can damage the battery and possibly the motherboard.
Keeping your battery contacts free of dust and debris is important. When you remove your battery, take a little rubbing alcohol on a cloth and clean your contacts real good. Make sure the contacts are dry before you insert the battery back into the laptop and you are good to go!
Where laptops are concerned, I have always heard dell inspiron 5150 battery one question asked by owners. They want to know how they can increase the life of their battery. Having a full day charge in your laptop is difficult, but here are a few tips to extend your batteries life.
Try not to let you laptop get hot. This is a main cause of battery failure. The fan inside your laptop is designed to keep the inside of the laptop cool. Do not sit your laptop on a soft surface like a pillow or a blanket, better to have a cooling pad for your lap.

F-8 is the key, Try to "cold start" the computer, meaning remove the power plug from wall outlet or uplug from computer, remove battery, now replace battery and plug computer into wall outlet. Push the on button while "TAPPING" the F-8 key repeatedly Tap, tap, tap, until you hear a beep or it load the black menu with safe mode options. IF THAT DOES NOT WORK: shut down the laptop,remove AC supply, remove battery. Plug the AC power back in,DO NOT INSTALL BATTERY, Start the machine, without battery installed, and tap F-8 repeatedly. If it still fails, PULL THE PLUG OUT OF THE WALL OUTLET WHILE THE COMPUTER IS STILL RUNNING. NOW PLUG THE LAPTOP BACK INTO THE WALL AND START, THAT SHOULD TAKE YOU TO A BLACK PAGE WITH WHITE SCRIPT WITH OPTIONS YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

have acer one message says to plug into ac adapter


Check the AC adapter and power cord. It sounds as if either one end of the cord near the transformer box is loose, or the end that plugs into the computer is loose/not connecting properly.
Failing that, make sure the wall socket you have the cord plugged into has power (try plugging something else into it). If everything I mentioned checks out, there could be something wrong with your battery.

inspiron 2305 power cord doesn't turn the desktop on


After connecting the AC adapter to a wall outlet and to the computer press the power button the right side of the inspiron. The button itself should then lite up white if the power adapter is good. If not, check the power outlet you are using. Plug in something else and see if it works on this wall outlet. Some outlets are connected to a wall switch. If its still a nogo you may need to replace the AC adapter.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

dv6120us power button dont work


None of the buttons will work untill the power is turned on and no sound will be heard.
You might want to try charging the battery by connecting the AC adapter to the laptop and plugging it into the wall outlet.
With the AC adapter connected, try powering up the laptop.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.
