I'm confused.. you post this question on the pc desktop session... desktops do not have a battery... did you mean the power supply maybe??
if you actually have a laptop and you purchase a new battery please provide details on the lights that appear on the front of the computer when the computer is connected., there's a power light when the computer is plugged and a battery light that when charging is yellow/amber and when fully charged is green or blue.
if you in fact have a laptop and just replaced the battery depending on the lights you see in front it could be the connection on your computer attached to the motherboard right where you plugged your power cord, it's a fairly common problem that that little piece eventually starts crapping out on you. you need to get a replacement (ebay) and have it soldered onto the motherboard.. pay for it if you don't know how to do it.. it's a fairly delicate procedure.
again, depending on the lights you see, the othe problem could be your motherboard and your bios, flashing the bios may be something you may want to try.

post more details to see if there's something else that we may suggest.

    in general you get the software and the update file or both rolled up into one installed from the laptop manufacturer... I can try to assist you looking for one (if there's one avaliable). post details.. make and model.



    I would also suggest for you to rule out the posibility of a hardware problem FIRST because once you flash your bios.. there's no way back and if done wrong, that could render your computer useless.

Instructions

1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.

Hi, I have eMachines E640-N833G25Nnks, P/N: LX.NA102.059, Model: NEW85, S/N: LXNA10205902804E2A1601. It is: proc: AMD Phenom II X3 Mobile Processor N830, graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250, mem: 3GB,...


I Googled to see if there was any problems related to battery sensors, seems eMachines laptops don't have that problem, the laptop runs well while plugged in, so it's not internal circuitry, I believe it's a battery problem, as you say charging level has been decreasing progressively, try your battery on another laptop to see if the battery is the problem and just in case try a friend's battery on your laptop to completely eliminate doubts about battery sensors, if you don't have a friend with a similar laptop I would go the safe way and send the battery for replacement, if the store where you bought it is in the same country you should get the laptop there so they check out what's going on, if you live in a different country read the manual or click "eMachines customer support" to see if there's any tech support near your city, I still believe it's a battery problem.
Not I'm gonna give you some advice on taking care of your laptop's battery: - When you get new batteries make sure you charge them at least 12 hours before using it. - If you're not going to use your laptop in a while (one or two weeks) get the battery to full charge and then deattach it from the computer, put it back in if you're going to use it. - If using your battery periodically get it to full charge and deplete your battery's energy completely by using the computer until it turn's off itself and then recharge it completely again at least once a week.
If you have any questions, I'll be glad to help. Have a nice day.

To whom it may concern, My name is heather. I have a Toshiba L505D. That I purchased last March 2010. It is still under warranty and the computer is no longer charging.I even bought a new charger for it...


Hello.

With the cables disconnected, remove and reinsert the battery. Also, try to power on with the battery removed to see if the battery is faulty.

If still a problem, and since your computer is still under warranty, I would strongly suggest to contact Toshiba for a repair.

Since Toshiba is world-wide, look in your documentation for a tech support or customer support contact for Toshiba.

Hope this helps.

New battery will not fully charge


Hi, I have three possible answers!

A.
You're computer may not be capable of charging the full 12 cells. (Its only supposed to have 6). So you will only be able to use half the cells. In this case there is nothing you can do apart from just enjoy the 6 recognised cells.

B.
You computer has not fully recognised the 12 cells so you may need to install drivers from the HP website. Or alternately if you know how to and or have the original windows install disks. Then you can re-install windows and it will probably recognise the new battery properly.

!WARNING THIS WILL ERASE DATA - YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR STUFF!

C.
The third option is that the battery is duff, take it back to where you brought it and tell then the problem, they mey be able to help you or give you another battery.

Hi Tracy!

Okay, there are a variety of reasons why this might happen but the best way to find out is to simply take out the battery but leave the AC adapter plugged in then turn on your computer.

-IF THE COMPUTER TURNS ON: then youre in luck. kinda. your new batter is a dud and you should get a free replacement from whomever you purchased it from.

-IF THE COMPUTER DOES NOT TURN ON: it is most likely the A/C cable. These can be bought online from the HP site or cheaper on Ebay. Although the AC cable is the most likely reason, please keep in mind it might also be a number of other not-quite-so-easy to fix problem.

Keep us updated!
