SOURCE: The toshiba laptop a505 S6980

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

It shuts off all the time. Battery meter says....0% available (plugged in, charging) all the time.


If your computer stays on with the charger you might need a new battery. I had a similar problem with my Acer PC, it turns out all i needed was a new battery. After i purchased the new battery and the new charger my laptop work perfectly. Hope this helps. Good luck

My Fujitsu AH512 A series laptop which is brand new, the battery will not charge, just shows 0% available(plugged in, not charging), can you help?


Is your power cord (power brick) outputting the necessary voltage and most importantly amperage? If not, your laptop should still be under warranty. Take it back for a replacement.

NEW Battery not properly charging


Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

It is very rare that a new battery would no give proper backup. Ensure from your operating system (XP, Vista, Win7) etc that the battery is charging properly and it gets 100% charged.

If it is not chargerging, the issue could be with the charger

Let me know if any further clarification is required
Hope this helps

If the Acer is brand new then it is under warranty. Take it back to where you bought the Acer and get it fixed under warranty. if you attempt to fix it yourself you will most likely void your warranty.

Charging issues with a toshiba A215


Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.
