Re: Pluged in but not charging
Hi Lisa, The laptops only four weeks old and you experiencing problems already!!!! The best advice that i can give you is to remove the AC power from the laptop and run the battery completely down to the laptop shuts itself down, then try to charge the battery to 100% charge, if it charges to 100% then all's well and there is nothing to worry about. If it only charges to 95% again then i would recommend that you back up any data that you have on the machine to a flash drive, external drive or CD/DVD and take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for HP to deal with, it will cost you nothing as its covered for at least a year.

I have had the same problem with my toshiba p55t-a5202 from best buy took it in 2xs then was without a comp for weeks. The 3rd time I just took out 14 screws on bottom(do not loose them) carefully removed bottom cover (push in and up at sides to remove) then found battery. I followed the wires to the middle slightly larger white plug. Then took a very small screw diver and pushed down gently in the flat spot while pulling gently to disconnect the plug. The side lights went out. Then pluged it back in the same way I took it out. I put all screws back on the bottom cover. Pluged it back in and turned it on and whallaa! My lap top was working and I didn't have to be without it for weeks!! I like this comp but will NEVER buy another one with an internal battery. I guess til the next time it not responsive! Ugh! Goodluck!
It can run off of batteries alone, or the ac adapter alone. There is a rechargeable battery pack (think laptop battery) that is available. With this pack you would plug it in to the wall, charge it up, then play. Otherwise it's one or the other
My iphone's battery died and i plugged it in to charge it and left it there. Then plugged it into my computer then tried to turn it on and it wont turn on.. I don't know what to do. Does anybody have any ideas
ive tried charging and holding both buttons but nothing that means it is a hardware problem or the motherboard
try resetting it by pressing and hold the Sleep/Wake button (on the top right of the unit) and the Home button (circular button on the iPhone?s face) simultaneously for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
The first tip worked for me too, just try resetting it... Here's the logic: When your iPhone dies, the internal RAM shuts down after the reserve battery power is used. This in turn sleeps the motherboard, which is why it appears dead. Resetting the RAM on the motherboard will juice the very small amount of energy out of the battery to re-boot the motherboard. If resetting your iPhone doesn't work for you at first. Lay it in your cradle for approx. 10 minutes then try resetting. Although it doesn't appear so, you will actually be charging the battery, just without waking the motherboard.
Hold down the home button then plug the usb lead into the back of the computer at the same time. see if that helps!
I found out how to solve this problem...first power down your computer. Then take out the battery, remove the power supply, and then hold down the power button for 30 secs. Put the power supply in only (not the battery). Start your computer after everything is done loading up put the battery back in. Give it a min. and then you should be able to roll your cursor over the battery life indicator in the lower right corner of you computer and is should say charging. I have found that other people have had this problem and it has worked for myself and for them.
It could be one of three things. It could be a bad battery, a bad ac adapter, or the recharging circuitry could be bad. I would try pulling the battery out, and see if the laptop will startup and run strictly off of the ac adapter. If that does not work, you have a bad ac adapter. If that works, and the battery has any charge left, try running it strictly on the battery. If it doesnt work, you have a bad battery. If it does work, the circuitry is bad and you will probably need new motherboard. One other thing you can check is where the ac adapter and battery plug into the laptop, and make sure there is no corrosion that could be causing a short.
