Laptop wont run on battery!

Hi untill yesterday afternoon the laptop was fine in the sense that it used to run on battery eventhough the ac mains is plugged out....but yesterday afternoon as the main power wen off the laptop literaly switched off! no it didn't shutdown, it switched as if there weren't any battery attached to it! And now i cannot power up the laptop from battery( i mean without the ac main ).This laptop is just 3 months old , so i am under warranty period, but the problem is that i am out of station and i am unable to make use international warranty offered because there aint any service center nearby. So thats y i am postin this pronlem here rathaer than taking it to the service center guys( acer service ceneter ). so here goes the main question.....what could be the problem ? is it the battery that's faulty ? why would such a thing happen ? oh almost forgot one thing...this is quite odd, even though the battery is not fuctioning well windows reports that its 100% charged, nd this never drops......

    I have the exact same problem, if i disconnect AC-power, the laptop switches off instantly. Runs perfekt on AC-powering and displays battery power at 100% in windows, but it still dies when i disconnect AC.
    Frustrating

Ok it looks like your battery has run out of power thats why it would not run when ac is off.If it so happens that the laptop runs when battery is connected to ac then battery seems fine by me just flat. Conenect them to ac and run your pc,go to your control panell and power saving options and set to mimimum usage/power saving mode in this way you charge your battery.Remember bright screen consumes more power

The window is suddenly shutting down everytime i open it, eventhough it is fully charged?


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Hi forum, I have been using Compaq N610c notebook and was working fine but was not power ON . on AC adapter but it was working on Battery. From last day, the battery become zero showing battery indicator...


It's possible that the AC adapter "died", and then your computer ran on battery-power until the battery went to 0%.

Or, the socket on the laptop where the AC adapter connects could have broken, or become disconnected from the motherboard, such that the power from the AC adapter was not being accepted, meaning that your computer was running on battery-power.

Take the AC adapter and the computer to a qualified technician, who can test that the AC adapter is working fine, and can disassemble the laptop, to inspect that socket where it connects.

Laptop won't switch on


Your laptop went to sleep mode and could not wake up. Press and hold the power button for about 10-15 seconds. It will turn off and you should have no lights at all unless you have the AC connected.

Turn it on back again and it should be fine.

Check your power options under control panel and see the options for sleep or hibernate and disable it so that it wont happen again.

Hope this helps.

A humming noise when my battery is connected to the laptop.


Hi there.
The problem is battery if the machine works on AC power only, you will have to get a new battery or continue to use it on mains power until you can get a new battery.
