Sounds like a defective battery to me ...or perhaps a faulty charging system. Least expensive solution is run on no battery, AC only. Second cheapest is replace the battery. Third option (note I didn't mention "cheap") is to replace the motherboard. Last option is to replace the laptop (might be cheaper than fixing the laptop, if you factor in age, warranty, time, effort and headache involved.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

My ASUS K52 battery is at 58% and not charging why ?


Is this an ASUS charger and battery? Some ASUS laptops will not charge after a certain charge is reached, but it's usually in the 95-100% range to prevent overcharging.

If you bought an aftermarket charger, it may very well not have the amperage to charge while running the laptop.

I bought a brand new 170.00 battery for my Dell studio 1737 laptop. It continues to say plugged in, not charging. What can i do? I've tried plugging in and replugging in the charger.


For a new battery, we advise that you update the BIOS of your laptop, and open the hardware automatic identification port of your laptop.

When you use it firstly, you need to discharge till 5%, then charge it about 11 hours. Usually, new battery need to fully discharge and charge for three or four times, which can achieve the best performance.

About the new battery, please set the power management of your laptop: Property -> Screen Saver -> power -> Power scheme -> Portable / Laptop -> please cancel about low battery alarm and serious shortage of battery alarm when use the battery.
For some laptops, you could try to close your power management tool to test your new battery.

You could try to take out the battery from your laptop, and put it back again, repeat several times. Make sure that it isn't a poor contact problem between the battery and your laptop.

If the battery works in higher temperature, the battery protection plate will work and the laptop restart program will make a termination order. You can take out the battery, put it back again, and avoid work in high temperature.

In order to avoid some damage to the battery, please note:
Please don't take out the battery when the laptop is in run status.
Please don't pull out the ac adapter frequently when the battery is charging.
Please use high quality and reliable laptop charger, not to use the universal laptop charger.

Are there something wrong with the new battery can not charging?
That's not usually the case. When equipment for the first time to recharge the battery, the instability of the voltage and current may cause the battery charge to 50% (sometimes more, sometimes less), and equipment stop charging the battery.
If this happens,don't worry. You just remove the battey from the equipment, recharge again. First charging a new battery may need several repeated process. Please be assured that this is normal.

Dell inspirion 1501 laptop, not charging battery light showing red, have bought a new mains adaptor but still not charging


Does the back dc jack seem loose when you have the ac adapter plugged into it? Wiggle the cord right where it plugs into the laptop. If it moves around then most likely the dc jack on the inside has one of it's 3 points of contact broken. This means that someone would need to re-solder that contact or put a whole new jack into the laptop. Another thing to try is replacing the battery. Sometimes they won't charge because they are bad. Another thing to try is take the battery out, plug it into the adapter, turn it on, get into windows, shut down, put battery back in, turn on. See if that resets the battery and makes it charge.

If your computer won't charge the battery, but the battery charges fine in another computer, and you are sure that the charger is good, then your problem is probably the DC power jack. If you wiggle the end of the power cord where it attaches to you laptop, and it starts charging properly, then the DC power jack is broken.

Give Fremontek a call (I have no affiliation with them)
They know Averatec's better than anyone else I know, and can frequently diagnose via phone.

My bet is that youmight be able to "reset" or may need a power management board.

Hello, SONy Pcg-FRV37,Power problems


Clean the metal contacts on the Battery and in the compartment. Then, reset the BIOS to its default settings.
Next, plug in the AC Adaptor to charge the Battery.

If the issue persists then the problem may be related to the power circuitry.
