SOURCE: Dell Inspiron Battery problem

Try this trick. Remove the battery from the laptop and make sure the ac adapter is not plugged in also. Hold the power button for 30 seconds. Place the battery back in and see if it powers on. If not let me know.

Hope this helps.

Most likely you have a problem with the battery or electric circut in your laptop. Unfortunatly there is not much you can do, except taking it professional repair service.

SOURCE: I have a Dell XPS

this is either a motherboard, AC or battery problem. Isolate it by removing all attached devices, then emove the battery and power on the computer with just the AC adapter. If that does not work, remove try to use another AC, and another battery. if using another AC and another battery does not work, run the diagnostics on the dell laptop. press and hold the FN key, then press the power button. see if that will give you any error and take note if any of the lock lights will come up and/or blink.

SOURCE: Battery fully charged, icon says fully charged but

sounds like you "MIGHT" have a bad battery. But before you go shopping try to reset you battery..

  1. I have had the same problem and emailed Acer. You need to upgrade your BIOS settings and it will be fixed. www.acer.com.au/helpdesk

    This was acers response:

    Dear customer,

    Recently it was identified that a small number customers were experiencing a problem with the battery where it would not hold a reasonable amount of charge. We have released an update that should be applied to your computer to resolve this issue. Please complete the processes below and should you have any problems please do not hesitate to contact Acer support on 1300 365 100 or log a service request online at www.acer.com.au/helpdesk.

    Thank you, Acer Support

    THey also sent me a word doc with the process and a zip file with the BIOS update. I can not upload the up on these forums but if you go to acer they should respond within 1 hr. I sent my request at 1700hrs on a Sturday afternoon and got a response within 40 mins.
    ** if you need help with that then, this is how you do it. **** After download Acer Aspire one – battery not charging.
    Solution: Update the bios as follows:
    1. Go to www.support.acer.com
    2. Click on Driver & Downloads
    3. Select Product Family “Netbook”
    4. Select Product Line Aspire One
    5. Select your Product Model i.e.: AOA150 (located after MFG.Date:xxxx AOA 150 – xxxx)
    6. Click on the BIOS tab below


  1. Just a little more information on the Acer Aspire One Battery not charging issue:

    BIOS revision 3309 (and later) has a fix for battery charging particularly the 6-cell batteries, however if you have the latest BIOS and your battery still isn't charging a good solution is to power down the computer, remove the battery and unplug the AC power cable then push and hold the power button for a whole 2 minutes (nothing will happen, we're trying to completely drain all residual voltage from the mainboard to reset it), then release the power button, install the battery and power up the computer, it should now recognize the battery and begin a normal charge cycle.

    I have read other posts that claim to hold the power button in for 1 minute which I tried and it did not work, you must hold it in for the whole 2 minutes. (which is probably what you were advised to do,as you mentioned.I just like to cover all the bases,)
I know it is a lot. But I hope it helps

Laptop won't start-up


Can you tell me if the status lights on the power adapter and/or the battery turns on? Because you are telling me the status lights only stay on for 30 seconds, this should be a power connection problem.

One other possibility: can you tell me the climate environment of where you use your laptop?
