Question about Acer TravelMate 4150LCi Notebook

1 Answer

Hello i have a charging problem in my Acer TravelMate 4150 model,its 3 yrs old. Its not being charged at all,i mean its battery is nt gaining charge. suppose the charge level is 60%,so inspite of plugging in the AC adapter the battery is nt charging. Though when i connect it the Charging icon is showing in the all related windows/places. But the thing is that the battery is doing '1 way business'. The Laptop is doing fine with battery charge,but the charge its loosing not regaining again. when there was nt this problem the battery was giving 2hrs backup!!! So i doubt its not a battery drain-out problem. Hope you can suggest me a solution.Thank you -shubhayu Datta datta.shubhayu@yahoo.in

Well, this is happening to another laptop i know. if you remove the battery and order a new one and replace it it should work. Its probably just a dodgy battery. While you have the battery out, you will need to use the power cable all the time. This just happens to some batteries. Thats just my advice anyway.

PS: I am only 99.9% sure this is the right thing to do. I would check at a computer repair place too or battery world.

My acer travelmate 4230 is losing power very quickly when it is not plugged in...it seems like the battery is not holding a charge very well. is my battery just old? any suggestions?


If the battery is 2 or 3 years old or more chances are it needs to be replaced. When you charge it and it gives you less than 30 minutes it is time to replace it, ebay is a good place to start if you are considering getting a new one.

My Acer Laptop is about 3 yrs old and since the last month the battery has been running down within half an hour while in the past it used to last at least for three hours.


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.

New 6600 mAh battery won't charge


Is the AC adapter the original that came with the laptop or is it a replacement?
Check the label on the laptop (on the bottom of the laptop) for the voltage and current requirements.
Check voltage output of the adapter with a multimeter, this voltage should be slightly higher that the voltage than what is shown on the adapter's label because there is no load on the adapter.
It could be that the current (amps) that the adapter is delivering less power than the laptop's requirements, whilst it can power the laptop it may not be sufficient to charge the battery fully.
Try charging the battery overnight by shutting down the laptop but leaving it connected to the mains. Then boot up the laptop in the morning and check the battery's charge state. If the battery is at or near full capacity, then the problem is a (part) faulty adapter.
