Eee pc 1000HE Ac Power/Battery flashes on screen nonstop

My girlfriends netbook, stated above, keeps flashing between "ac power" and "battery" over and over. I'm wondering if her battery is going bad. Or if it's perhaps her charger. The charger seems unlikely as it was just replaced not but two weeks ago. Thank you for your help.

I suggest that you remove the battery from the computer and use the charger only to power up the computer and observe if it does the same thing. If yes, then you might want to update the drivers in her computer. Try using RadarSync.

On the other hand, if the computer turns off with the charger only, then you need to buy a new charger. You can also try using the battery only and check if it goes off.

What you have to try is to isolate the part which causing the issue by trying them one by one.

SOURCE: laptop wont boot and the battery and power lights flash

" beeps and it is a 3rd party charger for this model of laptop."

That 3rd party adapter could be the problem. Also, try to take out the battery and power it up from AC adapter only.
Ideally, try to find original AC adapter just for testing.

SOURCE: AC Power supply overheating for ASUS eee PC

If the pc is fully charged, dont leave it plugged in. Mine gets hot but I've experienced ones that were hot to-the-touch...I'd say be careful leaving it on charge when you are not at home.

I have Asus Eee 1005AH. Only starts up if I remove than replace the battery. I have to do this every time I want to use the netbook. Please Help!!

Take out the battery, and unplug the AC adapter, so there is no power to the computer. Then, press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds. This discharges small capacitors inside of the computer, which are like mini batteries that keep things running smoothly when your power source isn't the highest quality, like from the wall. Hopefully this solved your issue!

Can i use my asus netbook while charging it or plugged in with the battery?? will it affect the battery or not?

Hi dimarananjom,
That is fine as long as you will be using the machine like for watching Movies or playing games ON line or OFF line or maybe playing audio for 30 mins to more than an hour, but if you will just be using the machine for typing in a document or or maybe creating a resume using word then I suggest that the AC Adapter be unplugged this is to maintain Battery Life instead of having continuous power which can exhaust the battery cells faster.
Again if the usage will be something that may require more power like watching a move and highend stuff it is OK with the adapter plugged in but if the usage will be something basic use the battery alone this will be better for the battery life to last longer.

Unplug the computer and take out the battery.
Hold the power button for ten seconds.
