Hi Tracy!

Okay, there are a variety of reasons why this might happen but the best way to find out is to simply take out the battery but leave the AC adapter plugged in then turn on your computer.

-IF THE COMPUTER TURNS ON: then youre in luck. kinda. your new batter is a dud and you should get a free replacement from whomever you purchased it from.

-IF THE COMPUTER DOES NOT TURN ON: it is most likely the A/C cable. These can be bought online from the HP site or cheaper on Ebay. Although the AC cable is the most likely reason, please keep in mind it might also be a number of other not-quite-so-easy to fix problem.

Keep us updated!

Telecom r100 battery


It could be one of these three things.
1. Bad port. Often in laptops these ports become loose.
2. Bad battery.
3. Bad charger.

Borrowing either a universal power charger, or the charger from someone with a similar laptop, can eliminate some of the possibilities unless it is indeed your charging port.

If after plugging it in, the battery charges you know you had a bad charger. If the battery fails to charge, you know its time for a new battery. Again this only if the port itself is not bad.

Universal chargers can be expensive. You can find batteries and chargers on Ebay for a decent price.

OS WON'T LOAD


test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE SATA

MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty if its a flat ribbon 40pin ide

this will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure dust free connections

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have a finishing point so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure the CPU has a secure dust free seating with thermal paste

make sure your ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope this helps

My laptop will not work on the battery and i need to keep it plugged in although the battery say 100% charged, why


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

ALIENWARE DESKTOP LOST ALL POWER


In a laptop, you can lose power in three ways.
1. Dead battery 2. Dead Power cord. 3. Bad motherboard.
ther first two should be rather obvious, as the battery won't work or it won't hold a charge, but if it won't turn on at all, even while plugged in, chances are that you're going to need a new motheboard. This can be expensive in the M--x laptops, unfortunately.
Sorry for the bad news, mate.

Aspice 4580 low batry shutdown


Depending on which Windows OS you are using, do the following;

1.) Click on Start menu, right click on Control Panel and select Power Options. Choose the power option that allows the computer to remain ON when the battery is charging. The 'Home/Office Desk' scheme is one using AC power while the battery is charging.

Be sure the battery is snapped into the proper place on your computer and does not have visible damage. Although your post is under PC Desktop, I decided to give you instructions for a laptop. If your problem is a CMOS battery there would be different steps to follow. Please let me know how well I helped you by leaving a comment. Thanks,

I have an acer 4050 Travelmate, it has just suddenly stopped charging the battery. The machine works with the battery out and on 240v. If you put the battery in and on 240v it wont turn on. The battery has...


Sounds like the battery and how the system is wired (circuits)
Some systems require the voltage reg chips to run through the battery before turning system on. When the battery fails, the system will not boot, the dead battery interrupts the circuitry.
Once the Battery is removed the open circuit then is allowed to go to a new path.

Try this. boot up system and go into set up utility. plug in the battery, if it shuts down, get new battery. If it accepts it, save settings and reboot into OS.
