Given that the battery is relatively new, and that it seems to charge up OK when the machine is not in use, I doubt that this is a hardware problem. It could also be a normal limitation of the battery, I suppose, but I find that hard to believe.
My guess is that the problem is software related, and the fact that the battery does recharge when the laptop is started in ‘safe mode’ or when it is hibernating. Try that.

Regards

There are two supply systems are in your machines. One is for charging the battery, and other is for bypass AC power converted to Dc ; when AC power is present. That is when AC power is present, your machine will work on that power, and charge the battery simoultaneously. When AC power is inturupted, it will automaticaly change over to battery power. But the power consumtion of your machine is high. Therefore battery power will get downed soon. Battery is placed inside the machne only for urgent power faulure use. Not for continous use. Both the power supplies are SMPS [Switched Mode Power Supply] types. We can't prophet the reason for its failure. We are repairing such machens here. Now your machines battery charging circuit is ok. AC power bypass is faulty.

Power supply problems


Hello,

the problem is from the motherboard. One problem with toshiba laptop, is that they overheat too much.

Check if the fan of your laptop is working and make sure you keep your laptop where there is ventilation, so that air can enter into the laptop.

You could also open up the laptop, clean every dust on the motherboard and also the fan and cooler.

That's the area you should concentrate your attention on and not the battery or AC adapter.

Take care.

Power issues on HP DV1000


It is possible you have two dud batteries. Recharageable batteries have a limited life, they have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles.
With the battery removed and only the power supply connected and the laptop powered up, when you touch the connector on the laptop and the laptop does not shut down then the laptop connector is OK.

If you can verify your new battery is OK the the fault could be the power supply adapter, if may not produce enought current to run and charge the battery. Try charging the battery overnight by turning off the laptop and leaving on the mains t charge. Borrow a mains adapter and test it on your computer.

You can also check the BIOS setting for power management, ie. hibernate, low power shut down etc.

One of three things, 1- power supply, check your power supply with an ohm meter to see f it's getting the proper output to the machine. If the supply is starving the machine of power the charging system won't work to it's full potential. 2- the power management system on the motherboard, if this system isn't working properly it can divert power from the charging system. If it's just glitched then a bios download or chipset utility download will fix it, if it's malfunctioning, then motherboard replacement is the only option. 3- the battery itself, I have a Dell, and in the past two years, I've ordered two new batteries. The first held a great charge, more than three hours, but only lasted about eight months. The second only holds little more than an hour charge, but has lasted well. Batteries are just funny that way. Start with the power supply test.

Power issue


Is the new power supply a Dell. Some aftermarket power supplies, especially Targus, will not charge the battery in a Dell. If it is a Dell supply, then it's one of two things. 1- the battery is shot and needs replacing. 2- the power management chip on the motherboard is shot and the motherboard needs replacing. If the battery light is flashing orange then the battery is shot. If the battery light is green, then go into the power settings and see if the machine shows that it is charging. If it doesn't show that it's charging then it's the pm chip.
