Question about ASUS 1025C-BBK301 Eee PC Netbook Computer / 10-inch Display Screen / Intel Atom N2600 1.6 GHz Dual-core Processor / 1GB DDR3
Battery went dead, bought new one. WOuld not charge. Replaced adapter. Still nothing. Orange light blinks normal because battery at 8% and holding that charge through 4 charge cycles. HPCUID says battery wear at 3%, but gradually decreasing charge voltage. Need to figure out where voltage is getting pulled: looked at motherboard, no damage, did the ACPI compliant uninstall/install method, nothing changed, updated BIOS, chipset, and all possible drivers, nothing. It still says on battery meter that it is "Plugged in, charging 8%" and the only thing changed through 4 overnight charges is the charging voltage went from 8.9V now at 7.4. Charge current/W =0. Power settings set to minimal usage/power saving. Only solution I found is DC-DC converter but not sure how to go about replacing it without having to replace entire motherboard. Again, the only thing wrong with entire setup is that battery wont charge beyond 8% and it shows 46000 of 48000 charge capacity with 3%wear. Any suggestions are helpful.
Hi gelly, unless the battery you have purchased just happens to be faulty (can you test with another) then i would suggest that the mainboard is faulty (charging circuit is not working as it should) and unless you are good with a diagram & soldering iron i would recommend taking to a good local tech. Hope this helps.

The problem you described here shows that, the case is not likely to be a battery problem, but the laptop AC-Adapter (Charger) problem, because, the red light you are seeing shows that your battery has rundown, and even when you plug-in the adapter to AC, it still blinks red, showing that the AC-Power is not charging it. I would suggest that you get another Laptop AC-Adapter (The Charger), or try it with a friend's own first, then you'll see that the problem might not be with your battery but your AC-Adapter

I would say that a new battery should fix your problem.

Maybe try cleaning the battery contacts on the netbook. If it happens with both batteries, then it may just be bad contact between the battery and the laptop. An emery board, or a small piece of fine sandpaper can be used to clean the contacts on the netbook. Clean both sides of the contacts - do it gently as you don't want to sand down the metal, you just want to clean off any oxidization or corrosion on the terminals. If this doesn't help, it may be a bad charging circuit on the board (new netbook). You could also try charging with a different a/c adapter and see if the problem persists.
Hope this helps!

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.
If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it
