There is no setting to change, Thinkpad batteries work and charge automatically.

If the battery does not work, either the battery is faulty, or there is a fault in the battery charger contacts , inside the battery slot.

the most likely is a defective battery.

Go back to the shop and ask to test the battery on a different thinkpad, if battery works, then there is a bad contact in laptop battery slot. If it doesn't, then the seller must replace the battery.

SOURCE: batterie

There is nothing to change , should start charging automaticlly.....I would recommend installing the new battery , plugging in the laptop and keeping it off....see if that gets it charged up. It could be that it is just fully drained.

Also , did you have problems with charging with your last battery? It could be possible that your charger is shot , thats why none of the batterie's charged.

Battery not charging, need to find extra voltage load?


Hi gelly, unless the battery you have purchased just happens to be faulty (can you test with another) then i would suggest that the mainboard is faulty (charging circuit is not working as it should) and unless you are good with a diagram & soldering iron i would recommend taking to a good local tech. Hope this helps.

Gateway nv52 won't charge


It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

Samsung N145 Plus battery charge failure


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

If polarity is OK in battery section, then I think you have faulty mouse. Unless user manual states otherwise, I would return to seller for replacement.

Sounds like you should try a regular Dell factory refurbished battery. Or if not that, try a battery that you knows works for sure. Then try charging it up, if it doesn't charge up then you know its a situation with the motherboard.

My HP zt1170 Laptop's battery isn't charging; I bought it today (used) and he said that the battery did charge properly. I plug the AC Adaptor in, the batt. light turns amber for 1 minute then shuts off....


Sounds like the battery was on it's last legs to begin with. The charger appears to be working correctly. Try to reach some agreement with the seller over replacing the battery (not cheap!).

Charging or battery


With the battery in and the machine running on plugged in power, let it sit for fifteen minutes and then open the power properties panel and click on SHOW DETAILS FOR EACH BATTERY if it is not already checked. If the battery level reads 0%, and the laptop shuts down when you disconnect the AC power adapter, you have a battery that has failed (one of the cells inside the battery has "inverted" and has shut down the charging cycle). There is nothing you can do about this problem except replace the battery. I have a very similar HP laptop, and can say the batteries are so bad and unreliable it might not be worth getting a replacement anyway. Try to get the person who sold it to you to replace it for free, though. :>)
