Yes Its okay, if your laptop shutdown by itself when you use the battery, it may be because the battery is not charge enough or it may not be working properly

Laptop Won't Boot


You'll need to troubleshoot your laptop in order to know what the exact problem is. First try to plug it in with the battery on and try turning the laptop on. Next would be to remove the battery and plug the computer. If this doesn't work then it's definitely the AC Adapter and you'll probably need to call toshiba to purchase a new one from them or if you're still under warranty then have it replaced. They also have some qualifiers on whether an AC adapter or battery is qualified for replacement even if it's under warranty. Just call them on 1-800-457-7777 and ask their technical support reps about this.

If you want a more durable battery, you should choose 'Max Battery'. This option will save battery usage because it only requires a minimum processor speed such as to read the documents or check e-mail. Max Battery will affect the speed of the laptop in the sense of a laptop's performance will decrease.

Do not let any device 'parking' on the laptop when not in use

Often, allowing laptop users have the device plugged in the laptop - whether it's cable digital cameras, USB memory stick, PC Card - though such devices are not used anymore. Make sure the appliance is unplugged from the laptop when not in use because it will drain battery power.

Notice the use and recharging of the batteries

Do not half-hearted when to recharge the battery. Charge up to full 100 percent. If the battery is running low, the rechargeable battery back up to full but do not wait until the battery is completely empty. This will make the battery capacity to work well.

To note again, remove the battery from the laptop if you do not use the laptop for a long time. Would be better if the laptop plugged directly into the adapter if you will work in a long time.

Reduce the brightness

Webuser.co.uk launch that the LCD will eat battery power. Therefore you are advised to reduce the brightness of a laptop as minimum as possible but still comfortable to the eye.

Use the Screen Savers 'Blank'

On the drop down menu there are a lot of screen saver options, including FlowerBox 3D, 3D Flying Objects, 3D Text, Blanks, Marquee and so forth. You are advised to choose 'Blank' and set the time waiting (Wait time) up to 2 minutes and then click OK. This step will make the battery more efficient.

Reduce resolution

Another way to make the battery last longer is to reduce the screen resolution and number of colors used in laptops. To reduce it, you can right click on the Windows Desktop and select Properties. In the Display Properties dialog box select the Settings tab. Then set the resolution slider by pulling it to the left to reduce the resolution. Then in the drop down menu select the color quality (color quality) is lower, and then click OK.

Turn off Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi certainly participate actively consuming the battery consumption. If it does not intend to take advantage of wireless access, or to the Internet, make sure the Wi-Fi in the dead so that batteries last longer.

Battery can be used to power computer. Plug cannot. Tried a different power plug from a different computer with around the same voltage and whatts, but still didn't power. This is a DC in power plug...


The problem is most likely the DC connector in the computer. I have replaced many of these. Normally what happens is the connector is stressed by moving the computer while plugged in stressing the connector. It could also be the DC converter board but .... that would probably affect battery operation also.

To replace the connector, you have to completely disassemble the system down to removing the main board.

The initial battery of my Acer Travelmate 2480 packed up and I ordered and installed a new one. However, the laptop remains on "AC Only" power and the battery is not charged, giving a...


RTFM You can download the manual by googling "acer travelmate 2480 manual" (without the quotes). Or just click here

According to the Acer manual:

"Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a
"conditioning" process that you should follow:
1 Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.
2 Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
3 Disconnect the AC adapter.
4 Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
5 Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
6 Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.

Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and
discharged three times.
Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't
been used for a long time. If the computer is to be stored for more
than two weeks, you are advised to remove the battery pack from the
unit.

Warning: Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0°C
(32°F) or above 60°C (140°F). Extreme temperatures may adversely
affect the battery pack.

By following the battery conditioning process you condition your
battery to accept the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this
procedure will prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery
charge, and will also shorten the effective lifespan of the battery.
In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by
the following usage patterns:
• Using the computer on constant AC power with the battery
inserted. If you want to use constant AC power, you are advised to
remove the battery pack after it is fully charged.
• Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as
described above.
• Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach
the end of its effective life. A standard computer battery has a life
span of about 500 charges."

My hp pavillion was no power, please give an advise.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.

possible when the old AC adapter blew it took part of the power management circuit with it, This is the circuit that detects and charges the battery, I'm not sure whether this a seperate replaceable daughter card or whether it is part of the main motherboard. you will need to investigate this (or send it for a service)
