Power schemes battery

Chances are that your battery doesn't / wouldn't hold a charge anymore. The laptop runs off battery power. When it is plugged in, the AC power "goes right through the battery", to support the laptop's operations. When the power cord is unplugged, and the battery doesn't hold a charge, the laptop will shut down, as your battery is (too) low to continue supporting the laptop's operations.

The easiest way around this problem is to get a new battery for the laptop.
If your battery is (quite) new (and a Lithium battery), you may wish to see if you can "revive" the battery's "life" ... first by depleting the battery (completely), then charging it (until it shows it is full, plus a couple more hours), and repeating this process a few times. If you're lucky, the battery will slowly/gradually start to hold some charge, but, don't expect it to be very long.
The (preferred) way to use re-chargeable batteries is to charge it fully, unplug it from the external power source, use it until it is depleted, then plug in the external power source to charge it up (fully) again .... and NOT to keep it on a power source all the time.

I have new laptop how many hour battery charge first time

First Time Charging
  • The amount of time it takes for your battery to fully charge depends on many factors, like your battery type and operating system. Many newer laptops will charge in 15 to 20 minutes, while others can take a few hours.

    When you're charging your battery for the first time, charge it fully before using your laptop. You may have to go through a battery cycle a couple times before your battery begins performing at its maximum capability. To do this, charge your battery fully, let it discharge to about five percent, and then fully charge it again

    This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge.
    Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.

    Compaq armada E500 battery critical condition. How to fix it please?

    Battery critical condition = the battery has aged so much that it can't be used anymore, it has become incapable of holding a charge. The only thing you can do is to replace it but finding a new one for a laptop this old is going to be tough.

    Sounds like your battery is faulty and not charging. Try replacing the battery or just use the mains lead with the battery removed. If this keeps happening replace the system board

    I am seeing the charge light flash orange quickly 4 times, followed 1 longer green light flash. This happens regardless of whether I have it plugged in or not. What does that mean?

    This means your battery charge is critically low. It's also a sign that your battery is no longer holding a significant charge and is a good time to replace the battery.
