My laptop starts to shut down within 20 mintues being on it. my battery don't hold up either, it gets to hot. i've tried a cooling pad also


Good day.
You haven't mention how old is your laptop. Laptop battery operating hours diminished as it gets old. This is just normal for the type of battery being used in our laptop (also in cellular phones). If your laptop is really that old, there is a need to buy a new battery pack, Just be sure of the brand/model before your buy.
In some cases, the cause of your problem is in the charger or the charging mechanism. You may test your charger/adapter using voltmeter for the actual voltage reading and comparing this to the rating stated in the outer case of the adapter. If you observed a discrepancy in the reading, then buy new adapter.

Just let me know if you need some more help.
Good luck.

Laptop died suddenly and is not charging


Take the battery out and discharge the capacitors by holding down the power button for 15 seconds. plug in the charger without the battery in to see if you get a charge light. If you do, replace battery and plug in charger and power on laptop. If this does not work, you may have to pull the cmos battery for 15 minutes and try it again.

Sounds like the charge socket is not properly seated on the motherboard. I would call customer service on where you bought the laptop and tell them the situation. But by all mean DO NO continue to use it. You may do damage that they say "Is your fault"

Trust me I have had clients that have "Been there .. done that"

Good luck

My laptop wont charge when you plug the charger in it stil heats up but the light indicating that it is charging does not light up and it does not charge


What is getting hotter your power supply adapter or your battery, avoid very hot things - get it replaced with new one.

Caution - If your battery is getting hot there is a chance of explosion. dont keep it connected long time it can damage your computer motherboard

Hi,
Thanks for using the fixya forum, but could you be more specific with the model and make of your system and how old is the battery. Generally the battries last not more than 18 months on a laptop.

Gateway MX8711 CHARGER IS OVERHEATING.....NOT CHARGING FULLY NOW CHARGER HOT TO TOUCH...CAN'T LEAVE NOTEBOOK CHARGING TOO LONG


how old is this charger?? might be time for a replacement, also im sure the battery is no longer good either

take the batter out see if the computer stay on and gets hot.

if it does still get hot check if the CPU fan or the fans are spinning, if not, the MOTHERBOARD could be shot.

check the fan make sure they are free moving, no dust.

Bettter have it checked on the nearest service center if the unit is still under warranty. There might be a problem with your batteries based on our description (very hot).
