Battery fully charged, or is it.

Re: battery fully charged, or is it.

Good Day Blunty, It's one of two things, the more likely of the two is that that battery is totaly shot, laptop battery's are usually only good for 1.5 years then loose there ability to retain a charge. It sounds like that one's just done. Unfortunatly that those batterys cost more than there worth, 100 bucks or more. The second possibility is the power cord, is that the original power cord for that? Or was on that was bought aftermaket, some aftermarket chargers will only power your laptop and not charge. Also remove the battery and check for corrison. You can build your own battery fot a a laptop if got a few hours time, and are good with a soldering gun. You get the litium ion cells you need for about 40 bucks. Good Luck L8R

Full charge the battery first so that it can contain enough power to boot your laptop. Because it is a new battery it should fully charged for the first use.

Dell D500 Laptop will not boot up. Lights light up on power board, power light comes on, then all off after a couple of seconds. Fan does not spin. Battery is very nearly fully charged, and charges...

it seems like that there is a power issue with your laptop. It is more than likely that your laptop is fully charged, but the charge is not enough for the laptop to operate. You can always try a different battery if you have (which is, let's face it, usually rare).
If this happens only when your laptop is not connected to the plug, than you will have to replace the battery.
check also if the laptop gets too hot. if it does. it will shut down automatically, just like a car.

Sounds like the Battery or Battery contacts, You should figure it out from there. Its up to you to decide the best way to sell or trade your laptop if you desire.

Battery Not Identified.


I suggest you a few steps to solve your problem.
  • remove the charger and press the power button till all residue power is radiated.
  • then connect the charger and charge the battery fully and try booting the system.
  • if this don't work check the output of your charger and see if it is working fine.
  • if it is working fine then remove the battery and connect the charger and try starting the system.
  • if it works then there are two things possible.
  1. battery gone.
  2. IC responsible for charging is gone.
i hope you can figure out the problem through this.

Thank you

This should have a "battery check" button on the battery itself. Remove the battery and press the button. If it reveals that the battery is not fully charged, or you cannot get it to take full charge, perhaps all that you need is a new battery. If the battery is failing the check the system makes on it at boot, it won't.

Acer Aspire 1640 power problem

Will the unit work without the battery? The new Lithium Ion batteries can be overcharged and then cause all kinds of strange problems. Take the battery to a reputable electronics shop or Batteries Plus and have them run a voltage and current test. The current test being the most revealing. If either of these is higher than the level printed on the battery, dispose of it. Also, check ACER's web site for battery problems. All the computer manufacturers have had battery problems.

Good Luck

Booting issues...i guess

you are in shutdown with battery. try it without battery to eliminate one issue. Then, you may need to recharge battery fully, for around 12 hours.

got backup for that Acer?
