Check by connecting the adapter to another plug point.

Please check the light on the AC adapter. If there is no light then it is better to replace the AC adapter.
Check the laptop with another AC adapter of the same type. if the laptop works fine with the other AC adapter then replace the adapter

If the light on the AC adapter is on visit the manufacturer's website and try to update the BIOS. If this does not work. check by juggling the connector at the laptop's end. If the laptop charges intermittently or if there is no signs of charging, it is advisable to contact the manufacturer for having the motherboard checked.

SOURCE: Dell Inspirion 1526 Laptop Battery is not charging

Sound like the battery. Take the battery out and there should be a power meter on it, press it, if there are three lights that flash, the battery is shot. Not all batteries will flash if they are worn out, but they are supposed to. Try a new battery, I believe this will coorect the issue.

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.

SOURCE: The AC Adapter makes a beeping noise and doesn't charge the batt.

I would verify that the battery will take a charge. If the battery is bad, the charger will tell you that it is not charged. It will not tell you why, just that it is not charged. If not plugged into the computor,again, battery is not charged. Hence, the beep.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Acer aspire laptop won't charge

Hi,
First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.



Regards.

AC power adapter is plugged in. The laptop works fine on battery power but as soon as you connect it to AC adapter, the laptop turns off.


So your saying the charger will charge the battery, as long as the laptop is off...But when it is charged, you remove the ac adapter, start up the laptop, running on battery power alone, then hook the ac adapter to it, and the laptop cuts off..???

Probably the AC Adapter is no good....Go to e-bay and purchase a new AC Adapter for that model # notebook. But if it shows charging then try first by taking out the battery and see if the AC adapter will run the computer without the battery in it (if so, then the adapter is good, the battery is actually bad, so replace the battery instead).

Good Luck.

Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same power specs as the original. Has the AC jack in the laptop been damaged, loose connection, due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Try to wiggle it when plugged in to see if there is any connection. The AC jack may need replacing, if your lucky.

Asus ASUS A53U-ES21 wont power on


In order for the AC adapter to work the battery must be in good condition, why? Because the system runs of battery the AC adapter just keeps the battery charged up while in use, if the battery is open or defective the computer will not run on just the AC adapter.

My sons Dell Vostro 1500 has a problem with the AC adaptor. It will run the laptop but wont charge the battery. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks,David


If it will run off the AC Adapter but won't charge the battery then odds are it is the battery that won't take the charge and not the AC Adapter's inability to charge anything.


Google "dell vostro1500 battery" and change to shopping. You will see many available knock off battery's starting at 20 dollars.

Although AC Adapters go out too. They last a lot longer than batteries do. Today's batteries just don't last. I would say average life span is a year to a year and a half.

I had the battery not recognized on boot up. then


the Dell AC adapter has a sensing pin so the bios can determine the wattage of the adapter. If the system cannot ID the adapter, the battery charger circuit is disabled. You'll need a functional DELL ac adapter to get the battery to charge

Laptop battery not charging wanna know how to run without battery


The problem you described here shows that, the case is not likely to be a battery problem, but the laptop AC-Adapter (Charger) problem, because, the red light you are seeing shows that your battery has rundown, and even when you plug-in the adapter to AC, it still blinks red, showing that the AC-Power is not charging it. I would suggest that you get another Laptop AC-Adapter (The Charger), or try it with a friend's own first, then you'll see that the problem might not be with your battery but your AC-Adapter

Battery won't charge


Hello,
This is true, you will not be able to charge the battery without the correct charger. For mostly all laptops, when the charger is not maintaining a charge, it is time for a new one. However, it does not have to be the manufacturer's adapter, but I recommend purchasing the battery made for the Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook.
NextTag.com has decent deals on these adapters. http://www.nextag.com/ac-adapter-compaq-presario-m2000/search-html

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank You, Raph30
