What is wrong when AC Adapter is beeping continuously, and does not recharge laptop battery?


The adapter's Syscon detects a short circuit. It might be within the adapter itself; or with your system. Contact the authorized service centre in this case. If you have an other adapter, load it with. By this way, you can get an idea about the faulty unit. Electro help

ALIENWARE DESKTOP SHUTS DOWN AND BEEPS


* Make sure the laptop is using the AC adapter
* Turn on or restart the computer
* When the Dell logo appears, press F12 immediately. If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop, and then shut down the computer and try again
* Select Diagnostics from the menu and press Enter
* If a failure is detected, the computer stops and beeps, press Y to retest the component that failed :)

My Acer Laptop battery shuts down completely at 40 - 30


Go to Power Options --> On the plan you are using select change plan settings --> Change advanced power settings --> Scroll down till you reach battery and click the + next to it to expand the settings --> Where it says Critical battery level and Critical battery action (on battery) make sure that the level is at 5% and the action is to hibernate. If it's set to do nothing, it will keep running until it's out of battery and completely shut off. Plugging the AC adapter would give it more power. If that isn't the problem, check your battery's connection and consider replacing the battery.

NEW Battery not properly charging


Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

Toshiba sattllite a 60 has heat problem


You have an option here to check what the problem is....first I would like you to get a can of compressed air from an office supply store that is used for blowing the dust out of electronics. Blow the dust and dirt out of the vents on the side, bottom and rear of the laptop. I then would like you to run the laptop on the AC adapter only to see if the ac adapter is the problem. So take the battery out and run the laptop just on the AC adapter. If it shuts down, put the battery in and remove the AC adapter....if the machine continues to operate, the problem is AC adapter. It is most likely failing after a period of time causing an unstable power source and sgutting the laptop down....or if it fails on just battery too, then I would take off the panel access door to the processor and heatsink, remove the screws to the heatsink and carefully remove it and check that there is a layer of "thermal grease" on the two processor chips. If not, get some thermal grease and apply a very small amount and spread it evenly on the chip surface. Replace the heatsink and try to power it up.

IBM T30 - power issues


You might try cleaning the battery compartment. Makeing sure there are no damaged pins. Often times even a single messed up pin will cause this. Also this is a very good indication of adaptor failure. If you haven't allready I suggest getting another ac adapter specific to you machine. Even a substitute will casue the same issue you are now experianceing.
