    No the notebook should be working with the battery in or out as when the AC adapter is attached.

    I hope this helps. What type of notebook is it.

No Laptops can run with out the battery in. I would say make sure everything is plugged in securely and all that. If you still have problems feel free to ask I will be glad to help.

Hope this helped.

The battery never fully charges anymore. I've bought a new battery and it still didnt work.


Are you using your computer to charge or your charger that came with with phone? I was using my computer and my phone would last 8 hours. I took it to ATT and they sent me a new Batt but had the same problem! Come to find out my computer was not charging it fully. Maybe be cause it was going to sleep mode? Anyway I can get to 3 days on it now.

I think that if it's 100% it should say that it's fully charged.There could be something wrong there.

My computer blinks with a red icon on the printer saying that the it's recommended the battery be replaced when the battery goes bad. It shows 100% charge as well.

I just got a 9 cell battery off of Ebay for my Acer Aspire that lasts 3 or 4 hours and is a little big, but fits the contacts and locks on.

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.

Battery test shows that it is fully charged, but


There is a possibility that the battery has a damaged or faulty surge protector. This will make the battery work at random times. This is not a fixable issue outside of replacing the battery again.

Return the battery and get them to send you another if possible.

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.

My computer won't boot up when I install my new DVD burner


Hi,
your armada can support optical devides as of dvd burners, but you will erase your bios/cmos memory in order to work.

locate your cmos battery, remove it for a few seconds turn on your laptop, this will cause your cmos memory clear out. then turn off and reconect your cmos battery, you will to set up your dates. If this didnt work maybe your optical drive does not function well, if you disconnect any optical device and your laptop startup well then you will to send it back to the vendor, because of a faulty in your dvd burner.

If you wish we can fix this, contact me if you are interested:

Battery


I can't forsee a problem but I'd backup my system and buy a backup battery if it were my system.
There are so many computer parts/battery stores online these days but I can't recommend any particular one. Shop around and do some price comparisons. I've had luck buying batteries on ebay, but use caution there or you might end up buying a battery that's deader than yours.
Cheers,
Rick

Doesn't work without cord! Battery switch is not responding at all.


There's a "hidden" switch on the lower part that makes it not use the battery. You can switch it with a pencil or pen.
