Averatec 3150 charging/bat

So I just bought a 3150 from ebay that wont take a charg....e. Stuck in another fully charged battery (from with a dead 3150 I was using for parts) ant the middle charging lightwont come on at all. on the broken unit the middle light flashes whie charging stays solid when fuly charged (that mobo is pysically damaged SMT chips ,no POST no BIOS but will charge the heck out of a battery)
under controllpanel> power
windows can tell if there is a battery plugged in or not. Always shows "charging 0%". Any ideas? I'm handy with a soldier gun anyone got schems for this beast?

    reread and forgot this:
    if not plugged into ac power, cmos/system time goes to to 11/19/1999 so I am assuming power not getting from battery to motherboard....

    By plug you mean AC adapter? Or dc jack on motherboard? I tried other AC adapter (same voltage/amps/polarity/plug tip) with same result.(powers laptop fine, will not charge battery at all).
    If you mean DC Jack on MB, looked at it looks solid connected to MB. resoldiered (remelted existing solder) all connections to mb incase of micro cracks... thanks for the input. still same situation however I did replace the cmos battery to prevent cmos reset every time I unplug.

Battery will not charge compaq presario v5000


I would try replacing your ac/adaptor (power plug) before troubleshooting any further. It sounds as if the adaptor is faulty. Check eBay, you can get a replacement for less than 10 dollars.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Battery not charging


Your battery is dead and will no longer hold a charge. If it is a newer computer, then it may be defective and covered under your warranty. If it is an older computer, this is the unfortunate thing about rechargeable batteries...eventually they will no longer hold a charge.
