Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook

My battery is not charging and i just replaced charger

My computer is not holding a charge, so I thought that maybe it was the charger that needed replacing because it would work with my roommates charger. I bought a new charger and it worked fine for about a month. Now the computer is not holding a charge, it seems like the charger has a short in it. I don't know if I should buy another charger, a battery or if there is something else that might be causing the computer to not be receiving any power. Does anyone have a possible solution?

There is probaly a loose connection from the input for the charger.
but sometimes thats not the problem.
This happenned to me before , and I just called the company that made the laptop, and they said to just buy a new battery instead of going through the trouble of trying to repair it, which would take about 15-$ and 2 weeks. I would just buy a new battery for about 30$.

My battery won't charge even if I replaced it with new battery.


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

Battery not charging


Is it a replacement battery ,you purchased, with the EXACT same specs? Some aftermarket inexpensive batteries do not work well with your laptop. How do you know it's not charging, by the Icon in the Tray Notification Area? Again sometimes aftermarket batteries don't have the ability to communicate with the software. The pin-outs are not the same.

My aspire 5100 wont hold charge without charger


If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Battery will not charge.plugged in not charging


Does the computer start anyway, but it's just that the battery won't charge? If that's the case, it's probably a bad battery.

A procedure to do before assuming a bad battery is to (1) remove the battery, (2) disconnect the power supply from the computer, and (3) press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. This resets the logic circuits in the internal power handling section. If that doesn't help either, then the battery is probably bad.

If the computer isn't starting, however, it could be that the power supply has failed. Check the voltage output on the power supply.

Hope that's helpful.

I had a similar problem with my Acer Aspire after I got a replacement battery about 6 months ago.
I was told to disconnect the laptop, turn it off, disconnect the battery, then press the power button for 30 seconds to reset the charging circuit.

I did this, but it didn't work any better. I thought that since my charger seems to run the computer, but it says 0% Available (plugged in, charging) that there was something wrong with the battery.

So, I contacted the manufacturer of the battery and they said they would refund my money within 7 days after receipt, and they gave me an RMA number for the return on the address label.

I, also, got the battery from Ebay.
---
Since your problem is that the battery icon with a red X over it says 0%, I would say that maybe the battery is bad, or maybe the battery is not connected very well at the contacts. Maybe blow the contacts off with compressed air in order to clean any dust which may be on it.

I would maybe try another battery to try to see if the charging circuit is bad on the laptop.

If another battery doesn't work, then the charging circuit between the laptop and the battery may be faulty.

Good luck on this repair.

Not charging battery


Find a person (or a computer-store) with an identical (or very similar) Sony computer.
Try your 2 batteries in the other computer, to see if that computer can charge your batteries. If so, then either your AC adapter is is not functioning (but, it probably is, if you can run your own computer with the battery removed and the AC adapter connected), or something else is wrong, such as the "charging" of the battery does not happen.

My c500 presario won't charge and i think it's the charger. But when my battery went dead other times and i try to turn it on the lightning bolt indicator would always blink for a few secs. But now it just...


You probaly have a broken DC JACK on the motherboard. Therefore, regardless if you have a good power adapter. The power is not making a connetion to the battery because the DC JACK throught which the power flows is broken.

Try another adapter and remove the battery. If the computer is powered up using the new adapter then the old adapter is bad and the DC JACK is good. Replace the battery and if the batter charges, you can identify the old power adapter as the culprit. If the batter does not charge but the laptop powered on. Then both the battery and the charger is faulty-battery not holding charge.

Good luck

I have to agree that the battery is defective or maybe it is NOT the correct one for your system, although it may be similar.
Did you buy the battery direct from HP a third party?
The AC adapter charger could be defective as well, maybe the defective battery ruined the charger.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.
