When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.
The battery is dead and needs to be replaced. Batteries only have a useful life then they have to be replaced because they will not accept a charge. If your laptop works fine with the power cord, then the power cord is ok. But the power cord cannot charge a battery that has used up it's useful life.
Your battery is dead. Batteries only have a useful life and have to be replaced. Your power cord is ok because you are allowed to be on the computer with it plugged in. But the power cord cannot charge a dead battery that is beyond it's useful life. Replace the battery.
If the battery shows a red color and it stays red even when the Power Cord is plugged in, then either the Power Cord is not charging the battery or the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced.
The battery only has a useful life then it must be replaced because it will not hold a charge.
If you are able to use your laptop with the AC Adapter and Power Cord without any problems then the power cord must be ok and the issue is with your battery.
How do you know it is charging? What does it do when you hit the power button?
When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.
Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.
Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.
That is a signal that your battery is almost dead or drained. If you have the power cord plugged in and the battery is not charging at all, that means the battery is dead and you need to purchase another one.
In windows xp you should be able to click Start/Control Panel/Power Options. When the power options window opens click the Power Meter tab. It will tell you if your battery is charging.
Now to isolate if it's really the battery that's dead or if it's the Power Cord that's bad. You might really be operating on battery power even though you have the power cord plugged in. 1) Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. Turn it back on with only the power cord plugged in. If it comes and and boots up ok, then your power cord is ok. 2) Turn the laptop off and this time put the battery in, but leave the power cord off. Now hit the power button and see if it boots up. If it does that means you might have a little power still left in the battery, but since it was not charging when the power cord was plugged in, the battery is bad because you verified in step one that the power cord is good.
sounds like your charging circuit isn't working or the adapter isn't putting out enough power or amprage to fully charge the battery, or you battery went bad. if the charging circuit is bad then so is *********** board, time to burry the system and buy a new one
Hello my friend,
Try to check your battery if the is it working normal cause sometimes the battery itself has the problem its either lost contact or the battery is not charging or not normal. also try to see if the the the sensor or that links the battery to the software which is responsible to the update of charging energy is functioning normal but this is a rare possibility try to focus on the battery or the connector or power cord.
Hope this will able to help solve you problem.
