This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities. 1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge.
2.- Battery is bad.
3.- Battery charger board is bad.

Solutions:
1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge
Verify that the AC and or DC cable is not bad by testing the computer only with the power plug connected and the battery out of the laptop.
2.- Battery is bad
It is possible that if the power plug is good that the computer battery is bad. Leave the computer connected to the power with the battery connected in the computer for at least one hour; if the battery does not charge, consider having the battery and/or the laptop serviced or repaired.
If the computer and/or battery is not in warranty consider just replacing the battery as it is very likely that it is just a bad battery.
3.- Battery charger board is bad
If the battery has been replaced or new or an alternate battery from an alternate identical laptop does not work in the computer, it is likely that the power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.

    I have a Samsung P30 laptop with the same problem. I have replaced the battery and there is no change. The battery is shown as not present within Control Panel and the computer shuts down immediately when I disconnect the mains power. I think I need to replace the Corona Power Board, which is available on the internet. Is it difficult to replace?I have previously installed extra RAM chips without problems.

NEW HP Spectre 13T-3000, 13.3" Touch will not run with the battery and shuts down randomly


you can use the unit without the battery. Remove the battery, plug in the charger/power supply and turn on the unit and wait for the result. if the problem persist?..... maybe the fault is in CPU fan. check the fan...overheating the processor. Cleaning the heat sync and reapplying silicon compound on CPU's can cure the problem.

New battery HP g61 is fully charged but not working \


Maybe the AC Adapter Power Cord is not working. If you can't get on the laptop with the power cord then it is bad and the battery might be drained so you have no power source to power up the laptop.
If the laptop works only off the Power Cord and the batteryis not charging, then the battery is dead.

To check to make sure the Power Cord is working remove the battery and let thelatop run for 10 minutes or so.

To check to see if the battery has any charge left in it put the battery in andremove the power cord. If it won't boot or shuts down then the battery is deadand needs to be replaced if the power cord is ok.

My computer shuts down and I have to unplug the ac and remove the battery to get it to restart


Cold start issue. Your computer likes to be warm.

This could be because it has run too hot for a long period of time. Some damage is possible.

What you need to do is let it breath, airflow is important. Clean the intake and exhaust vents with a vacuum cleaner.

Always remove the battery from the notebook if using the AC power adaptor, unless you need to charge the battery. Maybe it's the battery that likes to be warm. Makes sense because a warm battery pack outputs more energy.

Power your notebook only off of the AC power adaptor, this may be the solution you are looking for.

Take care!

New battery in Acer laptop shuts down computer at 44% power ?!?


In the power options at the control panel you can set the battery options there to shut down at a lower percentage. Also within the software for your battery as well. At the task menu lower right hand corner tick the battery settings. John

Battery will not charge.plugged in not charging


Does the computer start anyway, but it's just that the battery won't charge? If that's the case, it's probably a bad battery.

A procedure to do before assuming a bad battery is to (1) remove the battery, (2) disconnect the power supply from the computer, and (3) press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. This resets the logic circuits in the internal power handling section. If that doesn't help either, then the battery is probably bad.

If the computer isn't starting, however, it could be that the power supply has failed. Check the voltage output on the power supply.

Hope that's helpful.

HP 530 Notebook will shut off by its self and when you restart it and will show you that windows was not shut down properly. Could it need a new battery?


The problem lies with the power supply system either in the power adopter or inside the laptop. When AC power is plugged in, the system shows that the battery is being charged (Yellow Light Indicator switches ON) but practically niether the battery is usually being charged nor the computer is being run by the AC power. Its a little bit of energy left in the battery that keeps running you computer for some time and as soon as the battery is discharged the note book shuts down by itself.
However, the Taskbar battery indicator gives the correct picture of battery charge and the charging process. Better rely on that.
Its a hardware problem pertaining to power supply and charging system and doesn't have to do any thing with Mother board, RAM, Hard disks or other hardware installed in the PC.
Do tell the above details to a repair workshop man to rectify the problem.... Best of Luch

Dell d410 laptop won't charge battery charger doesn't like the ba


There's a problem with the motherboard.

I would say try a bios update, but I believe it requires both battery and power adapter to be present before it will flash the rom.

The above probably won't work but it's always good to try the easy stuff first.

More than likely you'll just have to replace the board.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
