Lap works but the battery does not charge

The lap top is less than 12 months old, has windows vista on it. When you reply please use the KISS theory I'm not a big user of computers.

1. There can be a lose contact - Turn around the laptop and reseat the batteries. 2. Vista usally takes lot of battery resouces, resulting in fast draining. You may make use of Battery Saver (http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/tamir/archive/2007/05/14/Vista-Battery-Saver.aspx) 3. If none of the above help, you may have either replace the battery/trans switch. Call Toshiba if you are under warranty or seek help from a local technician
let us know the results, thnx

Oh

maybe your power IC is broken
or something about your power connection

you said The lap top is less than 12 months old,
it's mean it still has it's warranty

if you lost your warranty card
don't afraid
if seal(s) above your laptop is not broken
you still have your warranty

I upgrade my lap top which was on vista pro to win 7 ultimate and some of my my device don't work properly like the webcam, the audio speaker...


Install DriverMax 6.41.0.363 or driveridentifier http://www.driveridentifier.com/desktop.php
and drivers choose to present it requires inscription on site.

I had the same problem but once I installed these two could find the drivers it needed. You can also go to the asus website and search for the model name of your laptop.

I have another problem: after install win7, the batery not charge.
I bought the laptop with Vista, but I installed XP, now installed Windows 7, everything is working perfectly but not charge the battery, I've tried everything: calibration, tested various power plans, I ended up buying a new battery but no result . I think it must be some kind of driver or change something in the BIOS that I lack despite having returned to install XP and Vista and battery re-charging without problem. if you can help me send email jubatrakdc@hotmail.com
good luck

¿ tiempo de carga de la bateria en lap top por primera vez?


Hello,
Sorry, espanol no hablo

You must let the battery cargar completemente maybe 4 o 5 horas if you are not using the computer (OFF) , and 12 a 13 horas if computer is ON. Don't leave it charged in the computer while computer is connected to the power socket, unless you also charging the battery.
Before charging it a second time, make sure it is completely drained. Some manufacturers (Toshiba) recommend to cycle the battery (charge, discharge) 2 or 3 times before using it.
Every month you should allow it to be drained.

Tu dois laisser la batterie se charger complètement. Cela prendra 4 à 5 heures si l'ordinateur est éteint, et 12 à 13 heures si l'ordinateur est en marche. Ne laisse pas la batterie dans l'ordinateur s'il est connecté à la prise, sauf si la batterie est en train d'être chargée. Certains constructeurs (Toshiba) recommandent de faire subir à la batterie 2 ou 3 cycles charge-décharge avant de pouvoir l'utiliser de façon autonome.

Chaque mois tu dois la laisser se décharger complètement.

Hope it helps.

My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start


Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.
