The battery can be replaced under warranty. Contact the manufacturer and they will process the replacement, usually cross-shipped for free with good manufacturers.

Won't Charge

If it's not a recognized charger it'll stop charging the battery and try to run on the charger alone. If the peak draw of the laptop is higher than the charger output, it'll go right back off.
Try removing the battery and see if it'll boot on the charger alone.

My laptop wont start up but led's do Acer Aspire 8735z

It sounds like your power button could be stuck, or shorted out. Try cleaning your buttons with rubbing alcohol to remove gunk. Stuck keys can cause all sorts of problems.

Does this help? Let us know.

If your battery is six years old, it has done very well and you have looked after it. I would think that a new charger will fix your problem.

Dell Xps 15 Laptop Battery Not Charging

If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

It sounds like your charger is not working. If you can check the voltage out of the charger or if there is an indicator on the charger that would be my first place to look. Only do simple checks as the and it should still be under warranty being only a month or two old. If you have another charger that would fit then try swapping it out to get you going in the short run. You can always warranty old charger. Or if you bought it locally consider returning it to the store.

Tochiba laptop wont turn on. 4 months old. I brought a new charger charger light on battery light on. Push on off it flashes and turns straight back of/ any suggestions. Need it for presentation...

Not the best time to try and use a laptop you've been having trouble with. Go to to get their phone number or tech support chat because your laptop should still be under warranty.

Seems to be a problem of not enough power.

First check the voltage output of the charger(adapter) and match it with its specs.

Also try to reset the hardware using the following steps:

1 Disconnect battery and the charger
2 Let it sit for 1-2 minutes.
3 Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
4 Reconnect battery and charger and try to start by pressing the power button.
