Usually on laptops there is a way to reset the battery in the BIOS. When the computer first starts booting it will usually tell you what key to hit to enter BIOS, or sometimes it will say to enter setup. The most common are F1, F2, F10, and Del. Once you are in the BIOS setup look around for something that says test battery, or clear battery memory. Once you have told it to run it will usually want to completely discharge the battery, then charge it again and that will reset the measurements on the battery charge. If that does not work then the battery is most likely bad and will probably need to be replaced. You can continue using the laptop without the battery but you would need to keep it plugged in when you are using it.

2000 silverado battery drain


Have you had the alternator check for a bad diode it may not put out enough to keep the battery charged after 10 to 14 days. The bridge in the alternator could be weak. Hope this helps.

Can alternator put out 14.2 volts but not enough amps to charge battery and turn off dattery light?


Yes and no.
It sounds like you have a wiring problem.
The alternator output could be 14 volts and only one or two amps, but that would be enough to kill the warning light. Its more likely the alternator is charging but the current is not reaching the battery.

Why wont stay charged..used 2 times


If the lead acid rechargeable battery hasn't been charged for a while (like over the winter) it can lose its "memory". Try leaving it plugged in and charging for two or three days - it might fix the problem.

Battery light stays on


Batteries are difficult to test properly. They must be tested under load to determine the internal resistance... once the internal resistance is too high then you must replace the battery. Using a multimeter test the voltage. Write it down. Then turn on the headlights maybe even the radio and the blower, wipers etc (leaving the engine off) then take a voltage reading again. A charged battery should be near 14 volts readings below 12 volts shows a bad battery.

71 c10 not staying charged... new battery alternator fuses good and new voltage regulator


Maybe it wasn't running long enough to charge up the battery?
Stop trying to jump it, when you are having problems with it dying, take the battery off and have it charged. And/or buy a $20 voltmeter to see what the battery shows. If it says less than 12 volts, it is discharged, and needs charging. A good battery that is not run down should have at least 12.5 volts. A new battery that is charged should have very close to 13 volts, maybe 12.8 volts.
When you have the truck running, check the alternator for charging. You put the voltmeter right on the battery and check it again. This time, with truck running, battery should show at least 13.5 volts. That shows the alternator is working. A good alternator will put out about 13 or 14 volts-the regulator will keep it from going any higher to prevent problems, like a melting battery or electrical parts burning out.
I would say get the charging system working right, then address the problem of dying at stop lights. That could be a carburetor problem, if the alternator is working.

Yes i bought an emachine laptop and had it for a while now, and i was wondering, i always use it and leave it charge all night well now it won't charge at all and it won't even turn on !! Can you please...


Hi,
There could be to reasons , that the laptop is not charging.
1. The battery may have reached end of its charging cycle( Laptop batteries need to be replaced after 1 year to 1.5 Years of use)
2. A faulty ac adapter can also cause the same issue.

The best step forward, would be first try checking it with an alternate adapter.

Thanks for using Fixya

I pulled the battrery cover off and removed the battery. Leaved out for a couple of minutes then replaced and reversed the order. Then I turned it back on, and it still stays at the "Profiling media files" box. What should I do?
