Presario 700uk battery issue

Got a 700uk traded to me by a friend for an old ps1.. anyways the battery doesn't hold a charge so was advised to get another.. the replacement doesn't hold one either despite the battery reading 100% in power management. So the thing will only run on ac power. Also the DVD-ROM/CD-RW plays dvd's and runs data CD's but not audio's. Any ideas??

Re: Presario 700uk battery issue

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. Follow the below link for a step by step on how to build your own battery As far as the audio problem I would suggest re-istalling the drivers. Good Luck L8R

Yo! i think you should try something.get a friend that uses your type of adapter, try charge it with that and see if it responds.if it doesn't charge, you will have to replace your battery which means its spoilt.

You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

I bought a new acer aspire 5630 laptp battery but it is not working when fits into, whereas when I put it on the old battery it works on the power as the old battery is fully exhausted. Someone told me to...

What I believe they were mentioning is Flash the BIOS to the most current version, which should on the Acer support site ( or such)
If the old battery wasn't charging and the new one doesn't either then there also may be a hardware issue with the charging circuit if the BIOS flash doesn't resolve, at which time you discuss that issue with Acer if under warranty.

"battery doesn t charge how do I know if the power cord or the battery is bad on my Presario M2000

If the battery is over a year old then it could be dead.Anything over two years I would bet on it. Usually the power bricks are very reliable. To check it you just need to put a power meter on it and check the voltage against what is printed on the brick. It should be slightly higher.

Without a meter it is pretty hard to check. You should get some indication that it is plugged in. It may have a power light on the brick or the laptop that shows it on even if it wont charge.

Compaq presario battery charging

All you can do is to leave the battery out for a few days or longer. It will completely drain and then you can try charging it back up again. Im suspecting that the battery is starting to go bad anyway but at least this way you can verify this. If it still doesn't charge completely then the battery needs to be replaced.

Compaq Presario needed a new battery was installed labtop will not charge up!

When you install a new battery and remove a battery always make sure the laptop is completely shut off and have the power cord removed so that you avoid any possible power surge.

Batteries generally don't last much longer than a year and I have found removing the power cord or battery when it is off to be a good practice.

Before you charge a battery make sure it is run most all the way down. Recharging a battery when it is not run down can give it a memory and you may only be able to charge it up to the point you started charging it.

Anyway, if the computer won't charge a new battery then you could have a bad motherboard. To be sure try another battery.
