My advent battery might need changing

I bought 2 laptops for the kids about 2 years ago and we have since replaced the charger because it wouldn't charge them anymore. Now the charger doesn't work again but a friend thinks that I might need to buy a new battery for each one?? Do the batteries need changing already and how long is the battery life for? I don't want to buy new laptops. Just want to fix 2 perfectly working ones.....

SOURCE: My laptop battery won't charge

possible when the old AC adapter blew it took part of the power management circuit with it, This is the circuit that detects and charges the battery, I'm not sure whether this a seperate replaceable daughter card or whether it is part of the main motherboard. you will need to investigate this (or send it for a service)

Unforutnately there is no way of telling if it is the battery or the charging board in the laptop. However, 98% of the time, it is the battery because the battery life in a laptop is very short.

Did you find this message helpful? If so, please give a good rating of fixya. Thanks.

Sounds like you might have a bad dc power jack. ifyou wiggle the jack around where it plugs in on the computer, does the powr light come on?

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop battery isn't charging, I think :(

Debby
Try booting without the battery installed. You probably will have no change but this eliminates the battery as a source of the problem. If it doesn't boot and you are sure that the external power supply is ok, you probably have a bad motherboard. At that point, the unit needs to be checked out by a pro or a really competent amateur.

SOURCE: laptop is not getting charged

you need to buy new motherboard, it is a hardware problem
if you still on the warranty, take advantage of that because i believe they going to replace the parts for free

I bought my Zune 2 years ago and thought I had lost it, but found it. So I have been using it for only 1 year. About 2 weeks ago even after charged, it will only play off the charger for about 45 minutes....


Debbie,
Zune batteries are replaceable. They can be purcahsed for about $10-$15 and with a little knowledge can be replaced by anyone. Check the internet for both the battery and replacement instructions. eBay is a great place to find the battery and most places even include the needed tools

IT sounds like you need to replace your battery. If your laptop (notebook) is working properly while plugged in with Ac power we know it is not your power supply.

I would visit the manufacturer's website for replacement batteries. One complaint I have read about over and over on these particular systems is that the battery life is very poor.
