How do you know the battery is good? does the multimeter really read more than the battery should give, according to what is printed on it?
A 3,7 volt battery, should give at least 3,8, wham not connected. A 7,2 at least 7,4. Because the printed voltage should be on the connector, when you are discharging the battery.
When your charger is blinking, it could indicate the battery is not well. The Ri can be to high or something else, is wrong, and that is ht the charger won't or can't charge.
Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then -
The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty.
Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.
The tablet buttons can be disabled to stop your screen from rotating. Go to Control Panel > Tablet and Pen Settings > Tablet Buttons > select the rotate button and click change > select "None" on the drop down menu.
You can actually short out the on/off circuit with a flat head screw driver. I have to do this until I can find somewhere to purchase a replacement sliding switch to attach to the new motherboard which I have waiting to be installed. Alternatively purchase a cheap docking station off ebay
Please let me know whats the OS you are using. If you are using XP it is a relatively simple reset procedure. However if you are using vista the easiest way to get rid of it would be to re-install the OS.
When the Batt is inserted and you are on AC power do you have a lit charge light? It's the one in the center of the three at the lower right when you are in landscape mode.
If your batt is at "end of mission" (**** up) then it's ability to hold and take a charge may be very limited. Calibrating the batt might help. You will need the toaster style charger.
If this is the issue, then the charge light may only stay on for a few seconds at a time when you first attach AC power, so be watching.
I could recommend a new batt (e-bay) if thats your only trouble. Nothing lasts forever. I'm in Missouri and will calibrate your batt if you want to mark it and ship it. Let me know.
Let the battery go all the way dead. You may have to adjust the settings in your bios so that the laptop will stay on until the battery goes completely dead. Then charge the battery. Do this a few times if it does not fix the problem you do need a new battery.
