Charging battery compaq presario c700


If you can reach inside the computer and rub the battery contacts gently to remove the corrosion ,which is invisible , this will help greatly. Sometimes even a new battery will suffer the same. Clean the battery contacts also turn off the laptop and charge it fully do this on a regular basis. Say once every 2 months

I have a mini 7 inch epc netbook. I first turned it on and it worked fine. Then a message box appeared saying the battery was too low and it shut down. I plugged in the adapter but it still won't turn on....


The battery is low on charge or shorted inside and won't take a charge dragging the voltage down so that even the battery charger won't start your computer.

Change the battery with new and charge with a known good charger.

try removing the battery and removing the adaptor press and hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds then let got this will power drain your system board noy turn the system on using the battery only without any adaptors to charge or power the system, try turning the system on if the system turnes on leave it turned on for a couple of hours then conenct your sysem adaptor monitor if the battery light and the battery indicator on the lower right of the screen in windows woll indicate that the system is chargin if it is then I believe everything should be fine the blue indicator is for your system if it is blue then your system is turned on and has power if it turned orange and blnking then the battery will be more likely be almost out of juice or may need charging.

Keeps shutting off even though battery is charged?


When was the last time your system was cleaned? Physical debris and dust accumulates in the vents of the internal fans of some of the laptops we repair. The overheating will cause the laptops to shut down withing minutes (seconds sometimes) of turning on the system.

Once the system was cleaned, everything was fine.

Good luck

HP 530 Notebook will shut off by its self and when you restart it and will show you that windows was not shut down properly. Could it need a new battery?


The problem lies with the power supply system either in the power adopter or inside the laptop. When AC power is plugged in, the system shows that the battery is being charged (Yellow Light Indicator switches ON) but practically niether the battery is usually being charged nor the computer is being run by the AC power. Its a little bit of energy left in the battery that keeps running you computer for some time and as soon as the battery is discharged the note book shuts down by itself.
However, the Taskbar battery indicator gives the correct picture of battery charge and the charging process. Better rely on that.
Its a hardware problem pertaining to power supply and charging system and doesn't have to do any thing with Mother board, RAM, Hard disks or other hardware installed in the PC.
Do tell the above details to a repair workshop man to rectify the problem.... Best of Luch

Laptop turns off when power cable is taken out even though battery is 100% charged


Hi,
sounds like the system has a problem taking power from the battery, but is able to send power to it for charging purposes, or the battery indicates a ful charge, when in reality it is bad.
If there's a way to borrow a known good battery for testing purposes, you might narrow it down.
I'm sorry, I'd need to see this one to offer any further advice.
Good luck
