When you say it won't charge, does it charge at all?

1. It indicates that it is charging, but as soon as you unplug the charger the battery quickly or immediately indicates it is dead. If the laptop is off, the LED on the laptop shows it is charging but the battery is always dead,

2. It is as if you didn't have the charger plugged in. No light on the laptop at all when the charger is plugged in.

Possible solutions:

1. The battery has died and is no longer capable of taking a charge. An alternate explanation if you can't even get the laptop to turn on even though the laptop charge LED is on, is that the internal power supply that converts the incoming and battery voltage to all the voltages required has died.

2. The power connector inside the laptop is a common failure point. The solder joints break from various minor shocks over time. This is going to become more common with lead-free solder as it is more brittle. Less likely is that the charging circuit inside the laptop has failed.

Some of these suggestions are way out there. The rule of thumb in laptop support is to suspect the battery and AC adapter first. They are the MOST common failure point if there has been no outside damage. All of these other ideas will result in other symptoms.
My bet is on the battery or the AC adapter - the most obvious and least expensive to try before paying some over-rated tech to open it and ruin it forever.

SOURCE: My laptop will not turn on. It charged all night

The problem might be with the static charges on the motherboard, LCD screen, RAM or with the Hard Disk. Try the followings.

1. Remove Static Charges:
1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.

Still same, remove and reseat the RAM and Hard Disk. Check the below link for service manual.

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01602064.pdf

Refer to page 52 of 134 (Memory Module)
NOTE: If you have more than one memory module, you should test them individually to determine if one or both of them are faulty. Insert each module separately, then turn on the notebook to determine if the inserted module is working. Once you have determined which memory module is faulty, you can replace the faulty module and reseat the working module.
Refer to Page 49 of 134 (Hard Disk)

If still the same, you need to contact HP for hardware repair.

You have a ground fault issue in the DC JACK.

There are escentially 4 circuits in the jack and one is not making contact.

1: Negative Charge circuit (outter ring)
2: Negative Run circuit (outter ring)
3 Positive (Inner Ring)
4: Signal (center pin)

I believe the negative charge circuit (outter ring) is not making contact internally. Typically what happens on that model DC Jack is the tension contact metal becomes fatigued, and does not touch the outter ring.

This could come from Heat causing early fatigue of the metal.
Or normal wear, the metal has simply worn out from regular insert/removal.

That usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced.

Despite of new battery my Asus PRO50 won't charge a 100%


Is it a replacement battery? Are the specs the EXACT match, DC volts and Amps? Some inexpensive batteries do not work well with your laptop, it's a Connector/ pin thing, they don't communicate with the laptop. Try pulling the plug and drain the battery and recharge. Cycle it a 4 times, drain/ recharge. Does your BIOS setup have a Battery Learning section?

Asus 1005HA pc not charging.. The blue light on the charger is on but it wont charge the laptop..


I have a total of 5, yes 5 netbooks and a laptop. My experience has taught me that sometimes, it is the charger not the actual netbook/notebook that is the problem. My barely used compaq laptop sat quiet for 2 years.... wouldn't charge..... I assumed it needed repairs more than I could afford. Meanwhile, with 2 of the netbooks, they stopped taking a charge even with the lil led light on. I ordered new chargers for netbooks- PRESTO-- they took a charge. And eventually got a new charger for the expensive paperweight I had too. Now they are all working again. Not an expert by any means, but have had a lot of experience with them. I would rather pay 15 bucks and be wrong, than assume it's something else- have them fix for 80.

I bought new universal adapter for asus laptop and it charges batery just when laptop is turned off


Problem description: The battery charges only when the laptop turned off. The battery charge LED lights up as normal and the battery gets charged to 100% while the laptop is off.
When the laptop is turned on, the battery charge LED goes off even if the adapter is still plugged in.
Possible cause: 1. AC power adapter failure.
2. Battery failure.
3. Broken/loose power jack.
4. Motherboard failure.
Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution: 1. This problem could be related to a faulty AC power adapter. It's possible that the AC adapter doesn't provide enough power when plugged into the laptop. To find out if this is your problem, you'll have to test the laptop with another working adapter.Replace the adapter if needed.
2. There is a slight chance that you have bad battery. Test the laptop with a know good battery and replace the faulty one if needed.
3. The battery charge problem could be related to the power jack. Maybe the jack is broken or not making good contact with the motherboard. It is necessary to remove the motherboard and take a closer look at the power jack. Resolder or replace the jack if needed.
4. If the power jack is in a good working shape and new power adapter with battery do not fix the problem, most likely you have a faulty motherboard. Replace the motherboard if needed.

Thbattery does not charge.I have installed a new


Hi,
you can try 2 things
1st option
If you get this message that "Plugging, Not charging", don't worry. it may be cause inconvenient removing your battery, well:
1- remove your battery
2- directly connect AC adapter
3- restart or on your laptop
4- after loading windows, put the battery
enjoy...
if it not work, you must flash your BIOS or upgrade to new version can find from your manufacturer company website.



2nd option
Take battery out and use pencil erases to gently clean the contacts. Also clean contacts on laptop battery box.
Sometimes the contacts oxidize.
Then put back in and see if it charges.
