Question about Toshiba Satellite L25-S121 Notebook

Open Question

My laptop does not run on fully charged, new, battery.

I want to replace or fix the internal battery connectors that I am told might be loose. This loose connection is preventing me from using my laptop on a fully charged battery.

How to fix acer 5735 battery not found?


Will the laptop stay on if you unplug it from the electrical outlet? Try letting the battery die completely, and then charging it fully and then switching it back on? You could also take the battery out and wipe the connectors down.

Battery not charging dell inspiron 630m


1
Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new dell inspiron 630m battery to replace the defective one.

2
Test the laptop power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3
Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4
Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5
Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.

Acer 5742 will not charge the battery


Before you replace the Mobo, test the battery and try another cord/charger of the exact type/power specs. If the AC jack is damaged, due to a pull, yank, tug....etc. on the cord, the AC jack may need replacing. It's difficult to say for sure, without eliminating other factor, the ones I mentioned. I assume a QUALIFIED computer tech told you the Mobo needed replacing??? Is the battery a replacement? Is the cord original?

Battery light flashing amber


Is the battery a exact spec.? Some aftermarket batterys, inexpensive replacements, do not play-well with your laptop. If you purchased from a computer store, return for a replacement. That said, It may be that it's not fully charged or need to be drained and charged, cycle it a few times. Some batteries have to go through a "learning" process. It says fully charged in windows software, right? again, some replacement batteries don't play-well with windows.Its a "pins" thing in the battery connector.

If you wiggle the connection to the laptop and it feels a bit loose, then the power connection on the laptop itself probably needs re-soldering. This is a common problem with laptops. Unfortunately unless you can do it yourself or know someone you can, then it will cost quite a bit to get fixed outside of warranty.

Battery not charging!


If the battery is 2 years old, then buy a replacement battery, see if it charges. Portable batteries are good for roughly 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before they begin to fail roughly 18 months. Dell warrants the Battery for 1 year, so there is no warranty on the battery. If a replacement battery doesn't charge, then the motherboard will need to be replaced. If under warranty, Dell will fix it, if not, motherboards are $100-150 on Ebay.
