Sounds like the power jack inside the laptop. Check to see if the little pin is loose inside the jack. Depending on your laptop, it could be an expensive fix. I had a Dell 2200 which cost £30 plus the part at £5 done by a pal. Some shops charge £70 +. Good luck.

Why did it charge only 13% all day plugged into an electrical outlet?


The cords go bad, check a different cord and plugin.

My ASUS K52 battery is at 58% and not charging why ?


Is this an ASUS charger and battery? Some ASUS laptops will not charge after a certain charge is reached, but it's usually in the 95-100% range to prevent overcharging.

If you bought an aftermarket charger, it may very well not have the amperage to charge while running the laptop.

LAPTOP NOT CHARGING


With Dell you have to use Dell OEM chargers to keep all the functions. Like charging and use at the same time. Otherwise it wont do both. Look on Ebay for a genuine Dell charger or go to Dells website. Be advised that it might be the jack on the computer though.

Charging problem


Have you tried another charger? Try to take out the battery, then plug in the charger again. There may be something shorting out the computer whenever you connect your charger

Before looking for a replacement charger, try this:

1. Remove charger from power socket
2. Remove battery
3. Hold the Power On button on the laptop about 10 seconds (while the battery is removed), and release
4. Plug in the charger to the laptop and power socket (without battery)
5. Try to turn on the laptop

Check also that all the cables from the charger are connected firmly.

If this doesn't work, you will need to replace the charger. Take the laptop with you, so you can try the new charger on the spot to be sure.

My Dell Laptop syas that my battery is charged. But when I remove the ac power cord the computer immediately shuts down.


Hi there,

I repair laptops professionally and work on many Dells. Here are the possibilities.

1. The plugin connection where the battery meets the charging contacts in its bay where it seats are malfucntioning and the software is reading it incorrectly. To see if this is so, push the small round black button on the battery next to the 5 little dots at one end. If none of those dots light up green, the battery has no charge and the connection I spoke of above is damaged or malfunctioning beyond where you can see. If all the dots light up green, the battery is likely fine but the laptop can;t connect to its charge at the plugin.

2. The basic software (BIOS) is reading the charger/adapter incorrectly and although saying it is charging or charged, the actual charger is ruined inside in the compartment for charging the battery. Dell chargers can actually be incapable of charging the battery but still run the computer on direct current while plugged in.

3. The battery is no longer able to be charged, but is giving a false reading.

4. The DC Power Jack (into which you plug the charger) is only partially damaged and while able to power the laptop directky, cannot charge the battery. (Check to see if it is loose and woobly when you plug in the charger.

The easiest and least expensive way to troubleshoot and fix this yourself is to start with the charger. They can be had on eBay for about $20. Keep in mind that if no green lights show up on the battery, it might be your first choice and it's about the same price.

I hope I've given you enough info the help you determine your true problem.

Regards,

The Selkie

Battery will not charge


Depending upon how old you battert/notebook is, the battery will eventually get to the point where it simply cannot hold charge anymore. You have to replace your battery or keep your computer plugged in.

Charger is no longer working


Oh, believe it or not. My computer use to do the same thing all the time. Just take the prongs on the plugin and bend them outwards slowly. This will make a tighter fit in the outlet.

The battery is probably worn out, or the charger failed. More often it is the battery that is no longer able to charge and needs to be replaced.

The only way to absolutely know which is defective is to try the charger and a new battery, unless you have a DVM and a load tester to be able to test the charger.
