Remove the battery and let the computer sit for about 5 minutes. Replace battery and plug in AC cord. Try to start computer. If the computer will not turn on, then chances are that your battery is fully uncharged. Check to ensure that the AC charger is working properly (voltage test with multimeter). If the AC charger is not working, you need to replace it. The laptop should work without a charged battery if the AC adapter is functioning properly.

SOURCE: laptop not getting charged

Take it back to someone else. SMOKE is bad. Electronics tend not to work when you let the smoke out of them. Even tho the operating system may say its charging or that it is running off of mains power it may not be getting current to the battery to charge properly because the some has been let out of the components in the battery.
If you have troubles returning it simply tell the manager on duty that this is a Lithium Ion battery that may now be DANGEROUS to you and your loved ones. And is considered a letheal device according to the TSA that looks for Batteries that have been compromised.
Do not expect much from ACER, sorry, used to work in tech support here and ACER has not been known for quick helps. but complain to the manager where you got it and he may take it back in order to avoid a lawsuit from an EXPLODING battery.

SOURCE: Laptop comes on for a few seconds then nothing

Sounds like you may have an overheating issue with the processor. If it has gone on for some time, there could be damage to the processor and that is accounting for the short turn off time. If the system powers up on the battery alone, does it still shut off?, if you take the battery out and just attach the ac cord, does it shut off just as fast? If the unit has run hot for some time and not shut off there is a good chance it has dried the thermal grease on the processor or it has done irreperable damage to the processor itself and they may have to be replaced. First get some compressed air you would get at an office supply chain and using short bursts of compressed air, spray it in the vents, ducts, pull the cd tray out and blow air through the cd drive, open the bottom of the case and blow air in all the compartments. Blow air across the keyboard, but pay close attention to the heatsink, and it vent grills.

SOURCE: My laptop wont charge, why????

sometimes the heavy cable to the actual transformer becomes loose, it looks connected but isnt, try shoving it in firmly, maybe also look and see if its power light is on, if not change the fuse in the plug.

SOURCE: Toshiba Laptop not charging

So confusing...Laptop AC Adapter nowadays has AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE, meaning it doesn't matter if it is 110v or 220v. Maybe you've got a FAULTY BATTERY. Remove the battery and plug in your AC Adapter to outlet and to your laptop and try to power-on.

Asus 1101HA battery isn't charging


Hi,

Is the battery a Nicad or Li-ion type, if Nicad, then that is the culprit.

Nicads are notorious for retaining memory from last charging, therefore the next charge starts from the last time it was charged. Li-ion batteries don't have a memory issue, so they recharge fully.

I hope this has been helpful.

Regards,
Peter

My sanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 Player will not charge anymore. At least not on the computer I'm on. I have had it hooked up to charge for 2 days now and nothing. Why is this and how can I charge it?


This is direct from the sansa FAQs at http://www.sansa.com/support/sansa_clip/faqs 02. Why won’t my Sansa Clip charge when I connect it to my computer? USB Cable
Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable.

Computer in Hibernation mode
Make sure that the computer isn’t entering hibernate or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be on in order to charge your player.

USB Port 2.0
Make sure your player is connected USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).

USB Port location
Try plugging in different USB port (i.e. USB port in the back of the computer); sometimes the front USB ports have problem charging up the device.

Battery
Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Latest firmware
Make sure to update firmware by downloading and installing the Sansa Firmware Updater.

I hope this helps, and don't forget to rate the answer.

Car was running fine all day yesterday. Went to


check your battery cable connections. Remove cables from post, clean with post cleaner, $3 at Kmart, Sears, auto store.
If that is not it, have auto store test battery (for free) after you charge battery. You could have a shorted cell in the battery.
Check to see if battery is being charged by alternator this way:

  • Test battery voltage with volt meter. It should read about 12 1/2 volts. (Engine off).
  • Test battery with engine running. It should read about 14 volts if the alternator is putting out.
Hopefully it's just dirty battery connections.

If this solves your problem, please rate as fixya. And, good luck. Report back results.
