Battery not charging after os installation EVO N160 C

While reinstalling OS in EVO N 160C, the main power through power adapter got disconnected in spite of the warning. Again I tried fresh OS installation. OS was installed without any problem. All the softwares and hardwares are working properly. Battery has the back up for 3 to 4 hours. the same battery is working in other laptop properly. but this laptop it shows only 0%. I think the problem is in laptop only. But laptop detects the battery properly while removing and connecting. Measurment of voltage maty be wrong.
I summarize:
1. battery problem after os installation.
2. Laptop detects the battery but showing only 0%
3. Same battery works in other Laptop of same model well.
4. Suggest me how to carry out the calibration of battery.
5. Pls suggest me if the problem is because of some other reason.
Looking for your reply

Lithium Ion batteries aren't something that you can really calibrate unless the laptop has a utility in the bios to do so (ASUS laptops). You either have a motherboard related malfunction in reporting the battery life as you say it does report in another laptop, or you need to update the ACPI driver which you can get from the manufacturer's website.

Hi swd6,

Just to isolate the issue, could you kindly remove the battery from your laptop and using the AC adapter alone charge the machine. Please let me know if it's charging.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The laptop has not been used for more than three years has no domain recognition so wana get through the password and get it operational again


If you are talking the cmos password (which i would think you are by being off for 3 years) then you need to open it up. starting with the panel behind the keyboard, it just pops off and then the first sets of screws are available. then you will need to find a button cell battery, pull it leave it out for a while 30-60 secs, then put it all back to gether again and try that, if you are talking OS password then you will probably have to re-install or restore or even 'repair' off of the install disc

Compaq evo n610c battery not charging


Hello All;
I used to have these same problems. I replace my BIOS battery, which I know was dead, because all settings get reset when I unplug the power and remove main battery. You might not have to replace it if its still good. Back to the main battery problem, You have a good change of solving this by going into BIOS, and under Tools there is a Battery Calibration option. Do the calibration for the main battery and-or other optional batteries attach and it will most likely solve the problems. This calibration process will take a long time; 1-charge, 2-discharge, 3-recharge, so leave it over night or however.

There was a mention of updating BIOS. This could solve the problem too, because BIOS controls the charging unit. Also, make sure you have Compaq Power Management install on your OS, (download at hp.com).

One note: it will not charge if the battery is about 93% or higher. 93 is not exact, but close to 90%. so test by discharging to below 90% and it will start charging again.

If anyone tries this, leave a post of your success or failure.

Compaq laptop Evo N410c Battery charging


Hi

 

First remove the battery and run only on the adapter... If it works fine then there is no problem with adapter...... Charge the battery continuously for 4 hours without seeing the percentage of charging and remove the adapter..... If the laptop runs on battery for 45 mins then it might be the problem with drivers..... Go to device manager and reinstall the drivers if it is less than 45 mins.... Reinstall the drivers either ways...... If still the problem persists.... Go to HP.com and and select software and driver downloads and give the product number.... select the OS... Select HP battery check.... Download the file (sp32299.exe) and click save.... Save file onto the desktop and close the site..... Run the exe file.... If it passes the battery is fine... If fails replace the battery....

 

The steps might be longer..... But i can assure that it will work
