Laptop battery is not charging

My mother plugged the laptop with the wrong adapter. Then suddenly it smells that there is an electrical fault. I've unplugged it. I try the laptop after few minutes. Everything seems okay but the charging of the battery is not working. There is always a need for plugging the adapter for it to work. I am hoping for your favorable response. Thank you very much.

You need to repalce the battery, it will only work on AC power only now as the power surge damaged the battery, thank your lucky stars that the surge didn't blow the whole laptop because 98% of the time it does!

HP 425 laptop does not charge


The first steps you could apply are-

1. Check the plug points. Test some other charger on the same plug point. If it's working, then go for the next step.

2. Use an alternate charger. If you have a friend with the same laptop / same charging adaptor, borrow it and see whether the laptop is being charged from that. Or you could go to an electronics
shop and see whether they have a spare charger just for checking purposes. If no adapter works, then it's not the adapter's fault, it's the fault of the laptop charging port.

3. To be sure, you could attach your adapter to an extension cable (a spike guard would be suitable. It prevents sudden peaks in current, thereby protecting your laptop from damage) . If it doesn't charge still, it's a fault within the laptop.

To check the charging port within the laptop, you'll have to go to a hardware specialist (assuming that like me, you're not adept at hardware!) . The specialist should guide you properly.

If the laptop is within the warranty period, you could try the service centre. Hope I've helped :)

Gateway nv52 won't charge


It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

I previously had a problem with my Netbook power jack on the side of the computer, but it seems to be fixed now. When I plug the adapter into the computer, the orange light comes on showing that it's...


I guess it depends on why your power jack was dameged at first.
If the old power jack was replaced after any electric accidents, this current problem can be caused by your damaged motherboard.
(After shock, the motherboard can still perform ok for a while. I've seen it.)

Or sometimes, rarely the battery can cause it. I don't know why but, that's what I've heard from laptop manufactuers.
To find out, please, take out the battery and plug in AC power adapter and try it again.

I hope it helps you.

I recommend you send it to an authorised Gateway repairer for expert advice but it may require a new mother board by the sound of your description.

Toshiba m35-s456 no power


To test if the adapter is faulty check it with a multimeter.
Test the output voltage on the connector that plugs into the laptop. The voltage should be 19 volts (the voltage is printed on the label on the adapter) or slightly higher because the is no electrical load on the adapter.
If there is no voltage or if the voltage fluctuates when you flex the power connector, then the adapter is faulty.

If the adapter is OK, then plug it into the laptop and the jiggle the connector a observe the charging LED light and if it flickers the fault is the power connector on the laptop. This can be repaired, it needs to be resoldered or replaced.
