It most likely needs a new battery, but you could try giving the battery a full charge first:

1. Power off the laptop and disconnect the power adapter.
2. Re-seat the battery (remove/reinsert)
3. Reconnect the power adapter and let it charge overnight. (6 hr+)
4. Disconnect the power adapter.
5. Power on the laptop (run under battery power only)

If it doesn't boot up and shuts down immediately, it's probably time to see about a replacement battery.

You say it isn't charging, but will it run off of AC power? If it isn't getting *ANY* AC power, then it might be the female end of the power jack on the laptop. If it will run on AC, the culprit is likely to be a battery that needs replaced.

try removing the battery and just use the mains power. If the laptop works you may need a new battery. If it doesn't your charger is faulty.

My laptop won't hold a charge. have a new battery


Is the battery a genuine Dell battery? 3rd party batteries can be high quality or crap, just depends on the maker. Regardless, when you attempt to charge it, does it at least take a charge even though it won\'t hold it? Or does the battery refuse to accept a charge at all? When you plug in your laptop, does the charge light come on? Does the the battery level icon on the lower-right corner of the screen show it\'s plugged in? I know, lots of questions.

Built in battery wont hold its charge


If the recharageable 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 and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Why won't my mp3 coby player won't charge


Your coby is not charging anymore..The battery probably needs to be replaced with a new one..Please check your connection when you charge it..There should be an icon that shows your battery is charging. If it does so that means your coby is charging but your battery cant store the energy anymore.

It wont charge consistently. In other words, its plugged in and the batter icon only shows a partial charge.

My storm battery icon was yellow then went to all red. I have it turned off and charging right now and indicator light is blinking greenish red? Is there a problem or does it just need charged


Battery icon goes yellow when charge is low, red when about to go off, yes, that's OK. Recommend give it more time after all the bars are full-white, to trickle more into the battery. Lithium batteries don't seem to like being flattenend and left flat in my experience.

The light blinks for all sorts of things, might also have pending messages, etc. Can use the Storm OK while it's charging, just hold down red button to turn it on again.

After turning on, sometimes the cellular receiver does not turn on until battery is more charged. Wait 10 mins and then try to make a phone call, you may get a message saying it's off, do you want to turn the receiver on - just say yes.

That should keep you going. Nice phone.
