Question about IBM G41 Monitor
Becker Germany say I need the wall adaptor or the cigar lighter yet the manual says I can use the USB cable.
I am in New Zealand but travelling to Europe later this year. They tell me to ring UK but we are 12000 milesa away!
PS Once charged, how long should the unit stay charged as we will be away from a car for up to 10 days
All usb cables if you have the correct mini usb end for your phone will charge the battery
now for your next question phone batteries are good for about 60 hours if not used or if just for calls may be 8 hours or if downloading data may be 5 hours
In other words it all depends on the use
the good news is that you can buy from most battery supply shops a small booster battery that will recharge the cell battery up to 4 times and it is about the size of a packet of cigarettes and is designed for what you are doing

SOURCE: new laptop battery not charging
Normally, charging cicuit of the laptop which is part of the Motherboard has the problem. This happens if you keep the old battery installed even if the battery is already futile. Best solution is to bring it to the nearest shop.
Hope this helps.
Please vote if it does. Thanks!

there is a switch in the plug end to the back of your comp its like a little swinging door that when you unplug out of back of comp this switch engages battery now if you unplug just from wall its going to see these 2 things the doors not shut but i have to keep working so it sets aside the plug still recognizing it of course but running off the battery trying to still find out why the powers not there but the plug is still plugged in and it will continually search until it reaches its falt point of dead battery
its like a battery backup for your system it gets unplug but wants to know where the power is
now in reference to the little swinging door i call it its a power over relay in your comp for some reason its not closing properly to allow battery to run by self
this is usually just a switch that needs adjusted in the motherboard configuration

There are several possibilities. Let's start with the easiest two. First the battery, take it out and try starting up only with the power supply. Then the memory chips. If a memory chip fails it can cause a no start in IBM's. Take the memory out and try it. Then try it, putting them in one at a time. If these don't work, then I'm afraid your problem lies within. Namingly the power management chip on the motherboard. The pm chip controls the power input, and allows such functions as switching between battery and AC, and battery charging. The pm chip can go without warning, and just because it lights and shows charging doesn't mean this chip hasn't malfunctioned. I've had several IBM's come through my shop that have experienced the same problem you're describing. I've also had them with problems like; it will only power with the battery, won't charge the battery, will charge battery and only run with battery shuts down while charging, only power under AC, etc... all pm chip related issues. Unfortunately, the only solution is motherboard replacement.

This could be a couple of things. Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. 1 volt over or under will need a supply replacement. The system could have glitched by being ran with a bad battery. Go to IBM's support site, download the bios or any updated bios version, and flash the bios. If this doesn't correct the problem, then it's going to be a failure with the power management system on the motherboard. You can take it in for a diagnostics to find the exact problem area, but most likely they will tell you motherboard replacement. Motherboard replacement is generally the only option with a failed power management system
