Could provide more information about the system and the problem. System information - Notebook Model name and model number - Any upgrades - Model of the external power supply - Model number of the battery - the age of the system Steps to reproduce the issue.
If I understand the issue when you unplug the power cord the system goes to sleep almost immediately.
The first thought that comes to mind is a worn out battery. There are applications you can download that can test a battery health.
If the battery is ok the other possibility would be power settings while on battery power.
Try this and report back

My compaq c 581WM notebook pc won't start at all. A while ago it got pretty banged up but I got it fixed and it worked fine untill like 5 months after and from then it wouldn't charge or turn on...


Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Computer wont charge the light comes on every few mins for about a min then goes off i can turn it on but only stays on a few mins i have a compaq presario r3000


The lithium batteries that laptops use have a 3 year lifespan. If you have had the battery for that amount of time then you have reached the end of it's life cycle. Most manufacturers build in a warning message that will pop up to let you know that you have reached that time frame and it is time to change the battery. If your battery is not that old then you have an issue either with the battery itself or the charging system built into the laptop. The only way to identify what the problem is would be to switch out the battery to another laptop and see if it would charge properly. If you do not have any access to the same model of laptop that you are currently using then the other choice would be to take your unit into your local HP-Compaq repair center. Usually the batteries are warranted for as long as the original warranty period on your laptop. The warranty would not cover the life cycle. If age is the problem then your only recourse is to buy another battery.

Acer travelmate does not battery charge but pwr jack, battery ok


First power drain your system take the battery out unplug the acadapter and then push the power button on the laptop and keep it pressed for 2 mins without connecting any power souce this will drain the static power from the syteme after few mins connect the battery first and then connect the ac adapter that should take care of the issue.

My Compaq R3000 does not charge up


The problem might be the battery itself. Four years is a long time for rechargeables. Also, check if the error ocurs when the battery is not in the slot.

It sounds like a mother board problem since you upgraded the bios and got different results. Try plugging in the adapter and warming it up. Will the computer run without the battery? that will also let you know if it's the battery.

My initial thought was that your AC adapter may have a heat problem or failing after a while. Wrap it in plastic and put it in ice and see if it lasts longer. If you have the same problem there are other issues going on in the computer power system.

Power problem


All batteries lose their ability to store power after every recharge. I would say the problem is the battery so get a new battery soon but don't forget to charge the new battery. If the problem is still there after replacing the battery, then my next guess is the laptop.

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
