SOURCE: Charging Problem

unfortunatly lap top batery's and all recharge battery's have what is called a charge memery they do not stand the test of time the more they are recharged the weaker they get. fore instance" When cam corders first came out. they were 12volts. if you charged them and took a volt meter to them (after a charge) they would measure 13.6 volts. after as long as 6months. There battery only charges to 9.5 volts after a overnight charge. SUGESTION TAKE OUT BATTERY' TURN ON UNIT IF IT WORKS FINE FOR A LONG TIME ON AC. THEN I BELIEVE IT IS A BAD BATTERY. hard to believe it is a charge problem with unit. REMEMBER the problem with sony battery"s last year that caused fire to lap tops DOCTORDAVE good luck Henniea

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 7720 shut down, no power light,

The laptop's AC power jack is probably damaged. All you have to do is put the fork aside :D, unsolder the old power jack and solder the new one in. If you are not good at soldering you can get it done by a qualified professional. Its a 5 minute Job and a pretty inexpensive repair.

Gateway nv52 won't charge

It sounds like you either have a dead mother board or a bad power inlet. Did the machine work with the new battery while it was charged? If so, then the battery connector was good and the inlet was bad. If not, your motherboard could be dead. I've also seen where a bad battery connector would syphon off enough power to not power on the machine or charge the battery.

I am trying to do this from home have no testing equipment and do not know what iI need to test. I drove the car on Sautrday had not one problem. Tried to start the car on Sunday and I had absolutely no...


Based on your problem, that I read fully twice, based on ALL THE things that are dead, this is positively a battery charging system problem.

Meaning this, Sense nothing works including head lights, which would work most likely, and they don't you are going to find this problem in a couple possible places. It appears your battery is dead. Now, listen if your battery is not dead or is good, the cables (positive or negative could be loose, or bad connection. What could also of happened, to cause this is a couple of things. If you have a bad alternator as you were driving it, it would not be charging your battery and actually draining it, with all your electronics on while driving. So, when you parked it, that battery most likely is completely dead or a positive of ground from that battery if loose or poor connection, allow the alternator not to charge battery while driving.

In conclution. Check good the battery, and connections and then the alternator. Now, sense you have no testing equipment as you stated, hard to test the alternator, all you can do, is somehow charge your battery and get car going and try and drive to closest battery place, even auto zone can check your battery cells and your alternator. I hope this helps. Mike

Hello, My Gateway laptop will not charge. When the power cord is plugged in, there is no purple light, showing that the computer is charging. Do I have a charger component on the motherboard not working?...

Have you tried removing the battery and putting it back in?

Does the laptop boot when the power cord is plugged in? With and without battery?

What does the battery charge icon in the task bar (down by the clock) show?

These are the first steps I use when troubleshooting a charge problem.

If none of these yield a solution than it's time to look deeper. And it *may* be a problem with the motherboard or more specifically with the charger port or board. The next question would be, is your laptop still under warranty? Laptops are not fun to take apart.

Gateway NV5337u Laptop worked yesterday, now only the blue lite comes on when plugged in. No fans or any other sounds.

We might need to talk more, to clarify to solve this promblem. First of all, have you done any update at all to the system? So by what you mean is that when you would go ahead and press the power on button, you get nothing at all... I mean dead, no lights, no fan, completely dead right? But when you have the charger plugged in, the battery light come on only saying it's charging? Is this blue light the battery indicator light, if it is, then that means your battery is fully charged. Try taking out your battery and just using the power adapter and press the power button to see if anything comes on, like fan, lights etc, then try it without the power adapter and only the battery. If you get nothing at all coming at all, I would assume your power button is bad or loose, or the wiring that connects to your powerbutton is loose because i have a gateway Nv series too, and the power button is located where the screen hinges is at, and I'm afraid that when opening and closing, it became loose. This happened to my Emachine, and all I did was took the plastic portion above the keyboard out, and followed the cable ribbon to see if it was loose, or became little disconnect. I kinda just tugged in a little bit and everything worked. I believe it may become loose. Now if the case is that the computer does power on and you get blinking lights, then we are looking at something else.

My computer has a fully charges battery (I checked by seeing the lights on when I press the check button). I also checked by running power check in control tab. When I un plug the power cord the computer...

Sometimes with rechargable batteries such has those on laptop computers the battery develops a "memory". This is caused by the battery not being run completely dead before recharging. The cells in the battery think they are all charged but they aren't and thats why the computer says they are. This is very common in cell phones as well. It is a good idea to completely charge a new battery and run it completely dead for the first 5-10 charges or so to prevent this. It is also advisable to run the battery dead and fully charge it once a month from then on. If there is a batteries plus stone near you they may be able to test the cells. if it is a bad battery the have 3rd party as well has hp brand batteries that are cheaper than going thru the manufacturer. Hope this is helpful to you.

Car won't start. But i know battery is good

you have a red top thats the problem
read the lit on the battery they are not designed for your uses

if you want a battery that can take abuse put in a deep cycle or a reg led acid but the sealed gell cells are not designed for under hood use in the long term look at the charging cycle required on the owners manule it it self is a pain in the ***
