I have a Samsung laptop. When using it once - Computers & Internet

I have a Samsung laptop. When using it once without battery (only charger) it sudenly died. I let it rest for a while as it was hot and turned it on, some blue lights came on then it died again. I tried with the battery, and it powered on... although, it did not charge so it shut down after 1/2 hour. The charger light is blinking yellow, I can power it on, but after 1/2 minute it shuts down. I tried to let it charge for hours, but the batery indicator on the batery still shows 0. Taking out the battery the charger lights goes green, but if I turnes it on it goes weak, then dissapairs and the laptop shuts down. Sorry if there is some bad spelling, my native language is not english and I am writing on a cellphone.

Sounds like your charger is not working properly, find a charger with same output properties to make sure.

    Yeah. I ordered a new charger (I did not have any with the same output) so I hope it will work.

SOURCE: blinking AC light with/without battery, computer shuts down

I want to try a very simple thing, cause it happened to me, while I am working on my computer , it shut down unexpectedly... cause the processor is working with its full performance and no enough cooling around the laptop. so while I move to other place and also I raise the laptop a little bit from the back to let the fans (bottom of the laptop) works perfectly .
try to open it again and do so.... may be it is a so simple thing that was far from your mind like I was before... good luck

SOURCE: I have a toshiba laptop,

Change your AC charger.
It's NOT charging "When the laptop is plugged into the AC, the power meter in windows tells me that the power source is still batteries, and the battery level drops by about 1% every few hours"
That's the reason why: "battery has completely died"
If you do not change it you'll continue to "still it gives me the same low battery indication and will not turn on. "

SOURCE: Dell Vostro 1000 shut down and won't turn back on

nope, it is your dc power regulator board. you will note this happens if the battery is in or out of the laptop. that is the key test. some regulators are on the main board and some are seperate for this reason. I think the vostro though is on the main board. A little board re-work will resolve this issue after replacing some components, but this is way beyond a home user's ability.. trust me on this. Sorry for the bad news. Thanks!

My samsung laptop charger gets hot and starts to melt when pluged in and powered up and does the same if i take the battery out please helptried a new battery and new charger could it be the jack on the...


I'm unclear however
Does the new charger get too hot? If so the problem is not the charger or the socket.
Does the laptop work with the new charger plugged in but no battery? If so the socket on the laptop is probably ok
Is the actual charger melting or is it just the plug that goes in the laptop that's getting hot, if it is the plug on both chargers then the socket will need repairing or resoldering, they are a weak point, the soldered pins go high resistance and can generate a lot of heat around the plug and socket. Its usually obvious if the socket is faulty because as you move the plug it makes contact intermittently.
DONT USE THE CHARGER THAT'S MELTING and if both are getting hot have the socket repaired.
If only the one charger getting hot the short is probably in the plug on that charger but read on
On a different note the genuine chargers should be over current protected and overheat protected, they should never melt.

My Samsung R580 laptop shuts off a few minutes after it is unplugged from the power cord. Battery is fully charged when unplugged. Thoughts on what the issue could be, and how to resolve? Thanks!


Could be a fried battery, could be overheating. Without knowing more about the laptop, I am going assume it's old and go with battery is fried.
Batteries in laptops are generally ni-cadmium and suffer memory loss. Tis means when your laptop is like 2 years old it won't hold a charge the way it used too. Buy a generic battery online for about 30GBP, or leave the battery out, and charging cable in.
If you get a new battery, once it's at 100%, don't use laptop and keep charger in, that's one way of damaging the battery.

Keep getting message that my battery in low, also laptop goes dead if not connected to cherger.


atteries have a limited life and most need to be replaced every 12 to 24 months. If that amount of time has lapsed since you've replaced the battery, or if damage was done to the battery, such as a spill or overheating, the battery may be dead Unplug the laptop from the wall charger. Remove the battery from the laptop. The battery is located on the underside of the laptop and usually slides out, or can be popped out by sliding the battery release buttons next to the battery.2 Dip a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Rub the cotton swab into the battery contacts to remove dirt and dust. Use a cloth dampened with water to wipe dust from the rest of the battery and battery housing unit. If dust is on the connectors, it can block or impede charging. Snap the battery back into place on the laptop.3 Plug the laptop wall charger into the wall. Plug the other end into the laptop. Allow the laptop to charge for 24 hours.4 Disconnect the laptop wall charger from the laptop. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop does not turn on, the battery did not charge, indicating the battery is dead. If the laptop turns on, but the battery lasts for a short period of time, this is a good indication that the battery is damaged or dying.

    Hi m529,

    I see you are having issues with you G550 charging.

    You mentioned that the light on the charger is lit up but then it suddenly switches Off, and you also mentioned that the charge still has a light but the power is somewhat low despite of a fully lit up charger Light.

    Have you tried draining the power from the system?

    • Remove the battery and the Charger or AC Adapter as well call it from the G550 then press and hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds to drain power from the system motherboard.
    • Once drained connect the AC adapter but do not connect the battery yet, then turn the Laptop ON to see if the system will power ON using the AC adapter/Charger if it powers up then there is no problem with the AC adapter/charger.
    • After testing the AC adapter if it is working power down the Laptop doing a normal shut down.
    • Once shut down or turned Off insert the Battery back in the Laptop then turn the Laptop ON using the battery only without the AC adapter/charger see if the system will turn ON using the Battery only.
    • If the Laptop powers On using the battery alone with out the AC adapter then the battery is most likely working as well on the issue.
    • Now power down the Laptop then connect the AC adapter to the Laptop with the Battery in the Laptop as well then turn the system ON again see if the problem will Occur again having the battery and the AC adapter/charger if the Problem happens with both Battery and AC adapter on the Laptop then the problem is the Motherboard, most probably the motherboard is having issues relaying power from the AC adapter to the battery and may be sent to the Depot for repairs.
    I suggest that you call Lenovo for further information about your system, if you still have warranty and is still in the one year period then your system will be covered for any repairs needed - you can call @ 1 877 453 6686 for troubleshooting, you will be asked for a serial number Located underneath the Laptop on a small white sticker that states s/n meaning serial number.

    I hope that this Helps.

    Have a nice day,

    Hot laptop and battery charger


    It may well be that the battery that's being charged is getting past its sell by date. They only last for so many charges. easy way to find out is remove the battery, connect the power supply, and if the charger power supply doesn't get hot (usual to get warm) then its your battery. It is perfectly okay to use the laptop without the battery installed on the mains.

    Hp pavilion dv6000 battery not chargering


    First try to reset the battery to see if it helps any by doing the following: Turn off all power saver settings on your laptop, disconnect the laptop for the ac adapter. Then use your laptop and run the battery down ignoring any low battery messages until it dies. Then let it fully charge for a night without turning it on, and see if it has saved any charge. If it still hasn't saved any charge, it seems like the only option is that its a dead battery and needs to be replaced. Best of luck!
