CAN'T REMOVE THE BATTERY

I HAVE A PRESARIO C500 LAPTOP AND NEED TO REMOVE BATTERY

1/2 AN INCH). HOW DO I RELEASE THE BATTERY, IT'S NOT COVERED IN MY OWNER'S MANUAL

You need to disconnect the laptop battery from the computer and also the ac adapter so there is no power.

Then you will need to unscrew the generally 2 screws on the memory cover to get to the ram. I will have to get a service manual for your unit and confirm how its done.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would appear that what you have been doing is correct. It is just that something is preventing the latch moving fully to the open position. If this assumption holds true then, it could be the battery itself is not seated properly. Might I suggest that instead of pressing on the latch, press on the battery to allow the latch to lock fully, then when it has done so, slide the latch to unlock. The hook/lock has not settled into its proper place (locked position) and the pressure is keeping the battery in place but all the same also keeps the latch from moving freely. In some instances, a drop of WD40 oil could also help stuck locks. It is electrically safe and therefore could be used.

Pls post back results. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

My m2000 battery is not working


The possible causes are as follows:
1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.
