Just had the same problem, found solution on another thread

Switch Off

Put side switch to hold

Press in middle button, keep holding in while you plug into usb port and keep pressed for a few seconds after.

Computer should recognise it and will keep charging.

Acer Aspire 4830T laptop battery behaving vaguely

Do you still have the old battery. If so charge it, and see if it charges properly. If so then you have a bad battery.

I have upgrade my pc with asus 7750 processor and also attached nvidia 9500 gt graphic card now when i start playing games.. my computer shuting down every after 10 or 15 min.. pls help me out...

Sounds like you might need to upgrade your power supply, If it physically shuts off then it's probably the power supply's thermal sensor being triggered. place another fan on the power supply form the inside and check to see if it makes a difference. Also make sure your running at least a 400 watt PSU if not higher.

Car won't start

Have the charging system checked out .
Have the battery load tested first.
If you want to do this testing yourself its pretty easy.
a) need a fully charged battery (charge battery 3min charge)
b) you need special equiptment to do a load test so the next best thing is open circuit test. Use a DVM
and hook it up to battery you should have min. of 12 volts. if not charge battery or replace it.
c) Leave DVM on battery start car and measure voltage with all accessories on and off should be between 13.5 and 14.5 volts.
If this is ok you know the alternator is charging that battery .
If you don't get 13.5 to 14.5 turn off vehicle and start looking at battery cables and wires behind the alternator for corrosion.
If cables are good and wires behind alternator are good then replace alternator.

Zen 16 gig won't turn nor charge

hold down the reset button for about 1 min then leave it for about 30 seconds. once you have done that try turning it on, if it does not turn on and it is completely dead leave it pluged in to your computer by using the usb cable, leave for about 30 mins it then might start to charge, if it does start to charge leave it till it is fully charged and then it should turn on. if none of that works then i don't know.

Not charging

I found out how to solve this problem...first power down your computer. Then take out the battery, remove the power supply, and then hold down the power button for 30 secs. Put the power supply in only (not the battery). Start your computer after everything is done loading up put the battery back in. Give it a min. and then you should be able to roll your cursor over the battery life indicator in the lower right corner of you computer and is should say charging. I have found that other people have had this problem and it has worked for myself and for them.
