Toshiba satellite c655-s5132 the laptop, charger and battery work well, but did not charge the battery


If they all work well, then the battery would charge. The most likely fault is with the battery. Try to run the laptop without the battery. If it works then replace the battery.

Batter wont stay charge


Most laptop batteries have a life expectancy of two years or 400 to 450 charge and discharge cycles. After this time, the battery may lose the ability to charge or to hold a charge for substantial periods of time. When this happens, it's likely the battery needs replacement. However, troubleshooting can narrow the problem and ensure you are not wasting money on a battery replacement.

Check Power Adapter Turn the laptop off. Remove any power cords or power sources. Separate the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Slide or press the locking mechanism to unlock the battery. Slide the battery out of the battery compartment. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Insert the opposite end of the adapter into the charging outlet on the side of a laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not turn on, the power adapter is not correctly working. If the power adapter is not working, the battery can not charge. Replace the power adapter. If the laptop powers on, the power adapter is properly working. Clean Battery Contacts Turn the computer off. Remove any power cords or sources. Take the battery out of the battery compartment. Dip a cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Rub the dampened swab on the battery compartment and battery contacts. Dust and buildup can prevent battery contacts from properly charging. Slide the battery back into the battery compartment. b> Charge and Test Battery Plug the power adapter into the laptop. Charge the battery for six hours. Remove the power adapter. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on and stays on for at least 30 minutes, the battery is holding a charge. If the laptop doesn't turn on or the battery doesn't power the laptop for at least 30 minutes, the battery should be replaced.

Laptop not charging battery plugged in but


Hi,

You can try taking out your battery and use only the charger (AC adapter only ) to see if the computer works. If your battery less laptop works fine that way, it is most likely that there is a problem with your battery.
You can also try testing your battery by substituting a battery that's functional from another laptop of the same model. If the substituting battery works fine then you may need to replace your battery :(

I recently used this company to purchase a new battery fro my laptop. I have HP laptop and my replacement battery only cost about $40. If you are looking for a low cost replacement, this might be helpful. Here is the link for the company I used.

Battery light on dell latitude d410 continously flashes yellow/orangish. Does this indicate a bad battery. Works fine with cord plugged in.


There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.

My dell xps M2010 laptop is not working with the battery but it comes on when i plug in the ac adaptor charger. when i checked the bios setting it says battery not recognized and later, when i turned on...


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Your power adapter is bad and is not able to charge the battery at all (which is why the battery is dead). Yes, this is common with laptops because of the constant plug in and plug out. Yo can purchase a new adapter for less than $25.00 on eBay. Anywhere else it will cost three times more.

Once you replace the adapter, the battery will get a full charge and you will be up and running again.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I will assist.
