The laptop's battery might be weak to hold the laptop. The indicator will indicate the battery is ok, but when mains is removed there, it goes off. Try swtch on with only battery and see if it goes on and then off, it is the battery that is bad.

No battery is detected in dell 830


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. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Lenovo G550 battery shows fully charged but when you unplug the laptop, the laptop shuts down and will not start up again until power cord is plugged back in.


Shows a clear indication of the battery to be faulty. So in the first place remove the battery and checck the voltage, now keeping the battery off the laptop, plug the adaptor to the mains, Now checck the voltage in the battery terminals which is in the battery compartment. If voltage is present then the battery is bad as it is not charging.
However if there is no voltage then the main board has a fault in the charging section which must be looked into.

Not switching on


Hi, Disconnect your ac adaptor from the laptop and remove the battery for about 30mins. Then keep power button pressed for about 10 seconds. Now fit install the battery and the power lead, wait for the mains led to liight which should also show the battery led as being charged, after 20 seconds, power up the laptop.
It should now power up, if not check if any flashing leds are present and if the lcd screen tries to light up.

I have had my computer about 10 months now and it has suddenly won't charge i have tried everthing what shall i do?


Hi SofaSW !

Is this a laptop we are talking about here or a desktop PC ?

If it is a laptop, they you might have a failing battery pack. Batteries will of course fail over time but as yours has occured with only 10 months, I would imagine that you are still covered by a warranty of where you purchased the computer from.

Give them a call and see what they say. Chances are they'll need information like how long does it stay on for. Does it stay on if the main cable is plugged in. Things like that.

If the battery is failing then they should be able to issue you with a replacement, and that replacement should be covered by another warranty, but be sure to ask if they do replace it for you!

Hope this helps!

possible cause.... check to see if there is a voltage on the connector of the power connector to the laptop.

try disconnecting the battery from the laptop, and connect the power connector, if the laptop works then you know there is a problem with the charging circuits or the battery itself.

You may have a defective battery. It no longer delivers the required voltage to make your laptop work optimally. Some components will not work when those do not receive enough electricity. When you insert the plug to the mains you get the required power to make the components of your laptop work. You may try to remove your battery and plug to the mains. If this works without problems, then you must change your battery.

Acer aspire 4920 charging mechanism failed


Most laptops, as in 99%, have one board and everything is on it. They don't really have a power supply since the AC adpater provides DC voltage already. There is just a voltage divider that take the incomming voltage and changes it to the various voltages the machine needs. The charging mechanism is also on the mainboard. I've very seldom seen a seperate power or charging board in a laptop. Unfortunately since you've already replaced the battery and the ac adapter and since the adapter is powering the laptop then there is definitely a problem with the charging circuitry on the mainboard. This isn't something one can repair unless you start changing micro components and ICs on the board which isn't recommended. Looks like a new mainboard or a new laptop is in your future if you want it to run off battery.

Another option is to get an external battery that mimics your ac adapter but that wouldn't give you a very long run time compared to the internal battery.

Don't forget to rate my solution in your premium thread as FixYa if you think I helped solve your problem. Thanks.

sounds like the battery may be bad. I would first suggest trying a replacement battery and see if it will charge if so problem solved; if however a replacement battery (that is known to be good) still does not work it is possible that your battery charger on your laptop has gone bad, which is possible but very rare.

Power supply will not charge battery on lattitude d 510 laptop


It may not be the power supply. The Battery can only take 500 charging cycles in it's lifetime. the battery could have failed or the chip on the motherboard that regulates voltage to the battery may have failed.

Easy test for power supply is with battery removed if it still powers up the laptop than the voltage and amperage are sufficient.
