It would seem the battery is dead, however, before buying a new one, check to see if it is charging as it could be a motheboard problem.

My battery do not keep any charge, but its condition was diagnosticated as "excellent" with specialized programs. The laptop works only with an automatic multi adaptor (Woxter brand). The system reports...


"plugged in, not charging" could a symptom of incompatibility between the charger and the battery.
If this is the case, once you unplug your ASUS ac adapter, the laptop goes off.
Anyway, it's still Ok to use the charger but you need to plug it in all the time.
Here is a little trick that I found that works.
1. Power up the Notebook with the battery installed,if you can.
2. Turn the computer completely off and remove the battery.
3. Power up the Notebook with AC power only (no battery installed).
4. Turn the computer completely off and re-install the battery.
5. Power up the Notebook.
6. The message no longer appears (at least for me it has disappeared).

Nc6000 multibay battery does not recharge


Perhaps remove the multi-bay battery, and let main battery charge all the way. Then reattach multi-bay battery, and see if it's recognized.
(Will charge)

That is AC adapter (Charger) removed, then remove multi-bay battery.
Plug AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug AC adapter into power.

[You do Not want to unplug an AC adapter from a laptop, with the AC adapter plugged into power. Could be a power surge/voltage spike. Unplug AC adapter from power, when plugging into laptop, or unplugging from laptop ]

Main battery charged, unplug power to AC adapter, unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug multi-bay battery in, then AC adapter.
(Then plug AC adapter into power)

Battry di pasang lampu carger langsung nyala dan laptop tidak bisa hidup


google translated
battry in pairs directly carger light turns on and the laptop can not live

If your laptop works fine while plugged in but stops working while unplugged it's likely that either your laptop battery is bad or your laptop is not charging the battery properly.

Below are steps that can be taken to help identify the cause of this issue.

Leave power plugged in


Make sure the computer has been charging from the power plug for at least two hours before attempting to unplug it.


Remove and reconnect battery


In some situations the battery can become loose.
Removing it and then put it back into the laptop.

Third-party utility


Use a third-party battery utility to determine the total capacity of the battery. For example, BatteryCare is a free software utility capable of doing this.


Replace battery or AC adapter

If your computer is still in warranty we suggest skipping to the next step.


If the above steps have been completed, we suggest replacing the battery in the computer or AC adapter. In most situations it's a bad battery.


hope this helps

I have a Compaq Presario R3000 with Windows XP OS. Until recently it had been working fine. Suddenly, the power went off while still connected to the AC Supply and the Laptop just went off. The battery...


1. Remove battery from the laptop. 2. Unplug the power cord from the computer. 3. Let the computer sit for a few min. 4. Leave battery out. 5. Connect power adapter to computer 6. Push power button to turn computer on. 7. If computer powers on shut down again, and put battery back in. 8. Push power button to turn computer back on (at this point battery and power adapter should be connected to the computer)
If computer powers on with power adapter with the battery out. You are having a battery issue. You would want to look into replacing the battery. If computer does not power on with just the power adapter. You are most likely having a power issue. Depending on how old the laptop is. You will either want to contact the manufacturer. Or take the computer to a computer repair shop, or consider replacing the laptop.

Dell 2650 DC wont work


make sure the charger you purchased has the correct voltage out and amperage(in millivolts) as requested by the laptop computer, if not you risk the chance of damaging your laptop. although they fit in the power plug, it does not mean theyre compatible. The specs should be located at the bottom of the laptop or inside the battery bay.

Battery maintenance


you should charge fully then remove power once it is charged.
use it with battery till battery is discharged.

leaving it plugged in all the time will kill the battery.

Travelmate 2300 won't power on


The problem could be your bezel.  Remove the 3 screws from the hinges from the rear and you will be able to remove the black strip above the keyboard (after removing the screws, make sure laptop is layed wide open)  once removed, press the button on the motherboard under where the power button is.  If the unit still does not power up, then your motherboard is bad and needs to be replaced.  If it does power up, you need to replace the bezel.
