HI,

this can be either
no power/no post /no video situation
when you push in the power button do you see the power light on
if not follow the following

please follow these steps
1) take out the ac adapter
2) take out the battery and try to start the laptop with AC adapter in (on sate) see if it works


if upper solution works call the laptop manufacturer tech support either your motherboard or battery is faulty

if it doesn't start with solution above

1) take out both battery and ac adapter from your laptop

push and hold the power button down for 15 seconds and then put in the battery and try to start the laptop, (this step release any flee power in laptop)

if none of the above works you have to call your laptop company (this was for no power issue)

if you see upto the limit when windows logo appear then

restart the system again and then keep tapping the F8 key when the manufacturer logo appears

and you will be taken to a menu that says safe mode in one of the option, select safe mode and press enter

check if you are able to login into safe mode if so, that means you have a video driver issue

click start button > run > type in without quotes '%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe'
> ok

you will be taken to a windows where you can restore your settings to a date when all was working fine, follow the instructions on the windows and select the date that was the one when system was working fine, > restore the system

(caution: when you restore a system back to a date any progarm installed after the that date will not work or appear in program menu as all the settings after that date is lost)

and when you will restart your issue will be hopefully resolved

if you are able to see the power LED its blinking or something
call your laptop manufacturer technical support

Further Queries are welcome

If the battery appears to be charging, the drop in the time it sustains power is likely due to a faulty or old battery. Eventually it will appear 100% charged and drop to zero in 5 minutes or less. I would think you need to replace the battery.

If you want to maintain the battery properly, it is best to remove it once fully charged and use on ac power alone. If using the laptop on battery, remove the AC connection and allow the battery to fully discharge before recharging it ( there is some debate on this method, other may disagree)

The initial battery of my Acer Travelmate 2480 packed up and I ordered and installed a new one. However, the laptop remains on "AC Only" power and the battery is not charged, giving a...


RTFM You can download the manual by googling "acer travelmate 2480 manual" (without the quotes). Or just click here

According to the Acer manual:

"Conditioning a new battery pack
Before you use a battery pack for the first time, there is a
"conditioning" process that you should follow:
1 Insert the new battery without turning the computer on.
2 Connect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery.
3 Disconnect the AC adapter.
4 Turn on the computer and operate using battery power.
5 Fully deplete the battery until the battery-low warning appears.
6 Reconnect the AC adapter and fully charge the battery again.

Follow these steps again until the battery has been charged and
discharged three times.
Use this conditioning process for all new batteries, or if a battery hasn't
been used for a long time. If the computer is to be stored for more
than two weeks, you are advised to remove the battery pack from the
unit.

Warning: Do not expose battery packs to temperatures below 0°C
(32°F) or above 60°C (140°F). Extreme temperatures may adversely
affect the battery pack.

By following the battery conditioning process you condition your
battery to accept the maximum possible charge. Failure to follow this
procedure will prevent you from obtaining the maximum battery
charge, and will also shorten the effective lifespan of the battery.
In addition, the useful lifespan of the battery is adversely affected by
the following usage patterns:
• Using the computer on constant AC power with the battery
inserted. If you want to use constant AC power, you are advised to
remove the battery pack after it is fully charged.
• Not discharging and recharging the battery to its extremes, as
described above.
• Frequent use; the more you use the battery, the faster it will reach
the end of its effective life. A standard computer battery has a life
span of about 500 charges."

Battery has been charging to 100%. Suddenly would only charge to 76 percent. Now, after two weeks, will max at 62 percent. Computer is 1 year old. Can battery meter be recalibrated?


Pulled from Gateway's website:
Do not interrupt the battery recalibration process. If recalibration is interrupted, you must start the process over again.

  1. Close all open files and programs.
  2. Connect your notebook to AC power and allow the battery to completely charge.
  3. Disconnect the AC power and restart your notebook.Note: If the power cord plug.gif or battery baticon.gif icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons showhidden.gif button. If the icon still does not appear, verify thatAlways show icon on the taskbar is checked on the Power Options Properties Advanced tab.

  4. Completely discharge the battery by doing the following:

    1. From the desktop, right-click on the power icon, then select Adjust Power Properties.
    2. Click the Power Schemes tab.
    3. Click the arrow button to open the Power Schemes list, then click Always On.
    4. Click the Alarms tab.
    5. Click to remove the check mark from the Low battery alarm and Critical battery alarm checkboxes. Let the battery drain until your notebook automatically turns off.

  5. After the battery is completely drained, reconnect your notebook to AC power.
  6. Charge the battery completely until the yellow battery status indicator goes out.
  7. When you are ready to use your notebook again, do the following:

    1. From the desktop, right-click on the power icon, then select Adjust Power Properties.
    2. Click the Power Schemes tab.
    3. Click the arrow button to open the Power Schemes list, then click Always On.
    4. Click the Alarms tab.
    5. Click to select the Low battery alarm and Critical battery alarm check boxes.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

Charging Problems


Try a different known working outlet just to make sure that its not putting out to much voltage and making the ac adapter to hot.

You also may want to try a different battery to make sure the battery isn't affecting the ac adapter.

If you do this and you are still having this problem then it could be a problem with the cells inside of the battery and you'll have to replace the ac adapter.

Toshiba satellite A210 11-P crashes when i disconnect the power lead


From Toshiba, try step-charging the battery or Battery conditioning procedures:

Batteries don't last forever. All types of batteries gradually lose their ability to hold an electrical charge as they age. Eventually, the computer's battery charge indicator may show that the battery contains less than a full charge, even though the battery has just been fully charged. The computer will then not run for as long a time from the battery as when the battery was brand new.
You may prefer to simply replace the battery if this happens, but you may also wish to try 'step-charging' the existing battery per the following instructions.
This procedure should work for the battery in any Toshiba notebook. Follow it only when you find that the computer will run from the battery for just a short while.
Check the User's Guide for more specific information about charging the battery in your computer .

Procedure

Step-charging the computer's battery

  1. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer, and turn ithe computer on. Let the computer run from battery power until the computer turns off, indicating that the battery is fully discharged. Time this interval, but not with a software clock running on the same computer.

  2. Remove the battery pack from the computer.

  3. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  4. Wait at least 30 seconds. The first time through this procedure, use a soft cloth to wipe the battery pack's contacts and the AC adapter's plug.

  5. Re-insert the battery pack.

  6. Plug into the AC adapter into the computer again and check the fit of its plug in the wall outlet, making sure the connection is secure.

  7. With the computer turned off, let the battery charge until the battery status light or icon glows green, or otherwise indicates a full charge.

  8. Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

  9. Remove the battery.

  10. Wait at least 30 seconds, then re-insert the battery.

  11. Plug the AC adapter back into the computer.

  12. Let the battery charge again until the battery status light turns green or otherwise indicates a full charge, again.
Repeat this procedure, starting from step 1, at least three times. Each time, check to see if the computer runs longer from its battery than the previous time.

Battery Conditioning:
IMPORTANT!!
Interruptions in the charging cycle can be responsible for an issue called "memory effect" which may reduce the battery's charging capacity. Whenever you suspect the battery performance is not at it's optimum you should try using the following "Battery Conditioning" procedure.

Before you start: Turn off your battery saving features temporarily.

***IMPORTANT*** Repeat the following steps 2-3 times!

  1. Unplug the power cord from the computer
  2. Turn the computer on and let it run until it shuts itself off.
    Note: Using the CD-ROM to play an Audio CD will speed the discharge.
  3. Plug in the power cord (While the system is off) charge the battery until the battery light changes from flashing green to solid green
  4. Remove the battery for 30 seconds and then replace it.
    Note: If the battery light isn't lit, wait a few moments, if it still does not light check your power connections.
  5. Continue charging the battery until the battery light turns solid green once again.
    **REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE 3 TIMES**

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Power problem with dell latitude.


This is a failed power management system on the motherboard. The power management system regulates the power input, usage, allows the machine to switch from AC t battery, and controls the charging. When this fails it can cause problems ranging from battery not charging, power on battery only, power on AC or battery but not both, no power at all, and more. You will most likely have to replace the motherboard, however, there are a few places that do circuitry and component repairs on motherboards. Google motherboard repair facilities, get an estimate, and compare the price to a new board.
