Question about Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook

1 Answer

I bought a new battery, laptop won't boot

The battery looks the same as the old one except it is a 4800mAh instead of the 4000 that came with the unit. The "made in china for ACER" label is on it. It will sit in the bios screen for more than an hour, untill the battery is dead. when i turn on the laptop it says charging, unknown remaining and the yellow light never turns green. when I pull out the power cord the laptop shuts off almost immediatly. but if I restart it and go into the BIOS screen again, it will stay on for an hour or more. This problem started with the new battery, the old battery still works even though I only get 9:00 with it, at least I can walk from one room to the other without shutting my laptop down.

    I bought a new battery and when I install it, the battery light is flashing. When I boot up my pc, status of the battery is 255% remaining but only will last 10 mins at most. When i remove the battery, i reinsert it and within 5 mins, the battery light flashes.

The new battery is defective - It needs to be repacked. If you're still close enough to date or purchase(even for an ebay purchase), you should be able to do a swap.

Dell inspiron 6000 error mesage permament battery failure detected. Replaced the battery and still get the message. Computer won't boot up

Tons of people have this problem with dell computers sadly, the motherboard is refusing it's new part. The reason they do this is so you send in the computer to their tech dept so they can make more money pretty much :p Remember, most new tech is meant to break like this, and usually leaves the tech dept in beta.

The only real fix is to replace the motherboard, or buy a new laptop.

Or you're having really bad luck and the second battery you bought is a dud too.

I have a Satellite A215-S4807. The original battery went completely dead (possibly from this problem), so I just went out and got a new one with a 4800mAh, which is slightly higher than the 4000 it came...

There is something wrong with the "recharger" components on the computer's motherboard.
Instead of charging the battery, and then stopping the charging process, it is "draining" your batteries.

Take your Toshiba to the nearest qualified Toshiba service location, to get it fixed.

Gateway MX3231 won't boot and I just bought a new power adapter

Based on what you have stated, it looks to be your AC connector that is loose or broken from the motherboard. This connector just needs to be soldered back onto the motherboard. Have a technician look at this before you start spending money on a new battery.
