You posted this in the desktop section I am assuming that this might be for a laptop? If it is then you might have gotten a bad battery. This does not normally happen, but it is possible.

Another thing that could be affecting it is the power settings. If you have the power settings set to maximum, then they will drain your laptop battery super fast, and about an hour sounds normal.

Another factor that might run a battery down fast is heat. If a laptop is used without proper airflow underneath it, it will drain the battery fast also. To solve this, you can use your laptop on a flat smooth surface, like a desk or table, or invest in a USB laptop cooler pad.

Dell vostro 3500 shows battery connected but not charging and intermittently shoes no battery detected


Instructions

1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.

My Sony PEG-T615C/G works well but the battery will not hold a charge. Can I replace the battery? if so, what type is it?


Hello

Your system definitely uses a lithium ion battery.

Over their lifespans, lithium-ion batteries can lose the ability to hold a charge. After a few years, some batteries will last only a fraction of the rated runtime. Replacing a battery is relatively simple; most pop out from the bottom or back of the laptop.

Many retailers, however, charge hundreds of dollars for a new battery. Sites like batteries.com specialize in discount laptop batteries and can save you money on a brand new battery for your laptop. For example, a Dell Latitude D620 Li-ion battery costs $139 on Dell's Web site and $83.99 on batteries.com, as of press time. (The company even offers a two-year warranty and 45-day money-back guarantee on all laptop-battery orders.)

Your last results is running your comp OK because it is really only running on the 512 stick. When putting 2 different sizes together it will only run on the smallest, with this said here is a website http://www.4allmemory.com it will test your comp to exactly what type RAM you need . I buy for my clients all the time from this website. Very reliable,Try it..and remember about the 2 sizes

Battery not running


Possible that whoever replaced your battery sent you the defective one back. Note the serial and model numbers on the battery, then request another one. When you receive the replacement, do a full recharge. Most new batteries come already half charged. Even in this state, take time to fully charge it (between 4 and 8 hours depending on the type and model). Then try running it on battery power. If the charge holds more than 2 hours on a new battery, youre good; less than an hour new, its defective. If after all of this still not resolved, request the company honor their warranty (usually a limited one year with purchase).

New battery will not fully charge


Hi, I have three possible answers!

A.
You're computer may not be capable of charging the full 12 cells. (Its only supposed to have 6). So you will only be able to use half the cells. In this case there is nothing you can do apart from just enjoy the 6 recognised cells.

B.
You computer has not fully recognised the 12 cells so you may need to install drivers from the HP website. Or alternately if you know how to and or have the original windows install disks. Then you can re-install windows and it will probably recognise the new battery properly.

!WARNING THIS WILL ERASE DATA - YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR STUFF!

C.
The third option is that the battery is duff, take it back to where you brought it and tell then the problem, they mey be able to help you or give you another battery.

Battery on lap top is not charging


switch off - disconnect ac adaptor - wait 3 seconds - connect ac adaptor - repeat about 20 times.
Is charge light blinking when you connect ac adaptor?
Try reseating battery.
If battery is old (over 2 years) or heavily used then it may need replacing. They only last for 250-500 complete discharges.

I need a new battery for my Acer Notebook. I need to charge it all the time. If I leave it uncharge, the battery will failed. Regards


Why in blazes did you ask here? They make new batteries and you can't reforge your old batteries like a sword. Read around a little and you'll learn...what's wrong with this category, for example...that batteries last 2 years max. before needing to be recycled (Acer or a box store can point you to their recycling bins) and a new one bought or made.

Backup you files and documents to DVD then reload Windows using the restore DVDs or CDs the notebook came with. This will solve your space issue as well as your mass storage controller error.

Also sounds like you may need a new AC adapter and battery, both should be faily easy and inexpensive to purchase on eBay. Just search by you Acer model number and both the AC adapter and battery should show up. I would at least get the AC adapter, sounds like there is a break in your cable. I got one for my wife's Acer for under $30.
