Question about Toshiba Satellite A75-S206 Notebook

Lost Manual How do you turn off computer so battery recharges properly? I bougt a new battery since the one that came with the computer was old. I do not know how to switch to ac power when I get a warning that battery is low. Also, how do I turn off (leave the computer overnight by either turning off, hibernating, or what) so the battery will be recharged when I turn it on again in the morning? Is there a manual online that I can print? Thank you very, very much.

How long do I leave the recharging cart on for to recharge my computers?

You have to unplug it if you want to make sure that it will serve you well. Plugging it forever will cause it to become defective.

I got a hp pavilion dv 2500 i assumed had a bad charger port because the light would not turn on when it was plugged in. so i went ahead and bougt a new component for it, but still no charge. any othe

How old is the battery. It may not be holding a charge because it is so old. Try holding down F12 during boot up to see if it offers you a battery recalibration option. If it does, follow the on screen instructions to the letter. Best of luck

Inspiron 1000 doesn't save cmos settings


As you said that you haven't used the computer for long time then it could be the motherboard which has gone faulty not the HDD or DVD.
Try to use the new HDD with this old motherboard.
Or else you can seek help of Any Geek Squad or computer vendor.

In case if you have any more trouble do contact back in Fixya.
Thank you

My acer aspire 1 wont charge at all

Take a stiff toothbrush and clean the laptop battery terminals and the battery itself, sometimes dirt buildup will prevent proper connection. If this fails you may need a new rechargeable battery, especially if it's one to three years old or more, go to Type make and model of laptop, refine search to battery.

Sony vaio vgn-nr285E battery won't hold a charge

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Presario CQ62 notebook pc charge problem! when I plugged charger its light always turn to flash and it says not recharging. But when I off my pc the orange light always show. Plz help

How old is the battery? In what year was it manufactured?
Batteries _DO_ wear out, i.e., fail to recharge.
You can either buy a new battery (eBay is a good place to look),
or find a company that disassembles the battery, and replaces the cells that take/hold a charge,
i.e., like replacing the batteries inside a flashlight, instead of totally discarding the flashlight.

With a fully recharged battery my computer battery only last a few minutes. Should I buy a new battery?

Seems like the battery is just old and leeking power. I suggest you take it to a computer shop nearby, ask them if anything can be done about it, and buy a new one if they can't fix it. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Have an acer aspire 5002WLMi laptop bought second hand. no manual. old battery. If I bought a new battery, how long of a charge would I get. Is it ok to continually use my adapter/recharge cord when I use...

I use the adapter plugged in all day long, it will not do any damage to your battery. You can leave it plugged in a work as long as you want. Just make sure you get the lithium ion battery as that is the fact I would get it off of the Acer home page if possible. As for as how long a battery last, depends on the usage and how many times you recharge it. Lithium are good for over 1000 recharges so again depends on your usage. Its the recharge that wears it down. Hope this helps. Pls rate this solution.

Battery will not charge.

Computer companies like to sell you expensive batteries. You must always remove your battery while you are plugged in, or you will greatly reduce its lifetime of about 300 or so full charges. Also, to break a new battery in properly, charge it for at least 15 hours, then let it completely drain and recharge 3 times.

Now, however, it sounds like your computer's charging settings are messed up. Go to device manager, open batteries, open microsoft AC adapter, see if it says that it is working properly. perhaps it somehow got turned off, or the files are corrupted. if all ok, open the microsoft ACPI-compliant control method battery--if that is what is in your laptop--otherwise check whatever else you have. If nothing appears wrong, update or replace the drivers from Toshiba's website. let me know how it goes.
