Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
New asus x200ca laptop will work with adapter cord plugged in, and SAYS battery is charging, but it always says 0% available, and pc will shut off as soon as unplugged. 'Charged' battery overnight, still nothing.
Sounds like a dud battery, or possibly a poor connection. As it is new, get back to your supplier to fix it.

1) Could be the battery is bad.
2) The charging port could be damaged
3) The adapter charge cord could be damaged
4) If not too expensive, I'd try a new battery first or better yet, if you could find someone with a like model to test their battery in your pc and see if it charges in your machine.
5) Ask a local shop if they'd be able to troubleshoot it for you.

Chosenone, Even though the battery meter shows it fully charged I doubt it?s correct. Over time rechargeable batteries loose their ability to store power. How long depends on the battery manufacturer and how well you treat it but you can consider yourself fortunate if your battery lasts three or four years. Beware of people who suggest you take apart your batter to bypass the safeties or replace old battery cells. Defective or improperly handled batteries can overheat and cause fires when you least expect them. Let us know if you have any more questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Is the Tagus adapter your original adapter?
Check the adapter wih a multimeter to see if the voltage output is or slightly greater than what is printed on the label.
The adapter may not have sufficient amps to charge the battery and run the laptop, check the current rating of the original adapter and compare it with the Targus, it should be the same voltage and current rating or higher current rating.
If the adapter is OK then the battery is worn out and needs to be replaced. Recharageable batteries have only a limited number of charge and discharge cycles, when this is reached they just don't work any more. Buy a new battery, not a 2nd hand one because of the reasons I've mentioned.

SOURCE: no charge on laptop
I agree. Batteries have a limited life. Also--once you have a new battery installed, be sure you let it discharge all the way (until the computer tells you it has to be charged--about 3% remaining) at least once a month. This will ensure you get the maximum life out of a battery.

Had the same problem, My other Dell charger would work fine but the original one that came with this laptop would throw an error message that the Charger wasnt recognized. None of the suggestions on the forums worked.
I held the chord by the circular flex thing at the end, and pushed in the power pin with force into the laptop, held it for a few seconds and now it works fine. If you push the pin slow and gently into the laptop, it doesnt recognize the adapter. I think the problem is either with the power chord connections inside or with the adapter inside the laptop. Try it!
