What is wrong when AC Adapter is beeping continuously, and does not recharge laptop battery?


The adapter's Syscon detects a short circuit. It might be within the adapter itself; or with your system. Contact the authorized service centre in this case. If you have an other adapter, load it with. By this way, you can get an idea about the faulty unit. Electro help

Yes it is, seems there is some problem with the power state detection and changing of the load mode. Might by a physical problem, so I am not sure you can fix it.
At least check your power plan details and see if there is any error with the ACPI devices in the device manager.
In general, if you use the laptop when plugged, you should take out the battery to maximize the battery life (prevents useless load cycles).
Also configure Windows to optimize battery usage.

My laptop won't turn on even though it's plugged into the recharg


Try removing the battery and running the laptop just on the p/s. If it works like this the battery is dead. Otherwise the laptop has a problem.

If the battery is dead, buy a new battery or run it on p/s alone.

Laptops should be run on battery alone as much as possible, or the battery dies.

Dead laptop


Check the ac adapter is the proper one for that laptop. Check the power jack is not damaged or loose. let laptop site without battery or power for a few hours. remove battery and retry power. try another ac adapter if that doesn't work, you may have a reset button but not likely to solve the problem. sounds like motherboard is damaged, or something blew.
