Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet
We just put a new battery in our E-machine lap top. Sometimes it starts up fine while other times the power light comes on but that's it.

The battery will need to be optimized, make sure you have the power cord in and start the machine, once the battery is fully charged drain the battery completely. repeat this process 3-4 times

It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.

Well it surely shows that the battery is not providing backup to the laptop. There could be few reasons for the same defective and faulty battery is one of them.
However i will give you a step which you should try once and see if it makes any difference.
Method (Power cycle)
You need to remove the battery, adapter and any other device connected to the computer (May be any additional cards or any wires as for Ethernet or speakers or external mouse/keyboard).
Nothing should be connected at all.
Now Press and hold the power button for 25 seconds (It wont show anything). This is a step to release any static charges developed, which may surely caused the kind of issue you are facing.
Now connect the battery and the adapter and check whether it is charging the battery and provides you the backup.
The usual battery life is said to be 1 year. if you are using an older battery, kindly get the same checked as well.
Hope his will help. Please let me know what happens.
