Why wont battery charge on laptop

A) The Battery is old, and beyond charging

B) The AC adapter (Charger) may be bad, and/or one of it's cables may be bad. If there is no one to test it with a multimeter, take it to a computer repair shop, and have it tested.

If bad suggest you look around at prices on the internet, before buying one from the repair shop. (If offered)

C) The port on the laptop, that the AC adapter (Charger) plugs into, is the DC Power Jack. (May be labeled as DC IN )

This jack may be soldered directly to the motherboard, in the laptop, or is attached to a cable which plugs into the motherboard.

For the style that is soldered directly to the motherboard, it's solder connections may have received damage.
Normal plugging in, and unplugging, may have cracked it's solder joints.

Bad connection caused by cracked solder joints, could = no power to battery. (Even though the laptop May be receiving power)

If laptop operates fine on the AC adapter, but the Battery will not charge, the problem may be a power sensor chipset, on the motherboard. May require replacement of the motherboard.

{ This chipset senses;
A) When the battery needs a Full charge, or just a trickle charge.
B) When the battery needs No charge, and power just goes to the laptop.
C) When the Battery needs a trickle charge, or full charge, and the laptop also needs power }

I have an acer aspire one aand even though I plug it up it says (plugged in, not charging.) How do I make it charge?

Welcome to FixYa!
Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.

1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

My Acer Aspire 5630 laptop will not charge all the time, even though the charger is plugged into it with the green light indicating its working. Its charges every so often, then stop, and my computer shuts...

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem. The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.
If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Another suggestion is to remove the heatsink and apply new thermal paste or the motherboard may need replacing. Leave it to an expert if you are not familiar.

Hope this helps.

Even though it's plugged in, it acts like there is a shortage in it. It goes to battery. I've even bought a new power cord and it still goes to battery even though it's plugged in. What's the problem?

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

Will not receive a charge


Look at the bottom of your laptop on the Dell sticker and look for a rating like this 19.5 volts @ 4.62 amps if your power brick is the PA10 heavy duty one.

The smaller power brick PA12 is only rated at 19.5 volts dc @ 3.34 amps and you would not believe how many Dells were shipped with the smaller power supply and the laptop needs the one rated for 4.62 amps. I have found this on many laptops I have serviced for folks who just have the wrong power brick for their laptops. This is a common cause of the battery never reaching a full charge or just not charging at all. Also, could be a bad motherboard too! Check out the ratings on your laptop sitcker and then look on the charge for the rating there too. They must match!!!

Hi! When I press power button, the front LED battery blinking for 5-6 times, then no longer happen. If I remove the battery pack, no one LED blink, no one LED light, nothing happens. The output voltage of...

Your battery pack is not charging. By removing the battery pack and trying to run on AC only you have proved the AC adapter is either not working or the power is not getting through to the laptop.
The best way to sort this is to try another adapter and see if the laptop works, if it does then your adapter is broken (this is possible even though it reads 19.1 under no load.)
If the laptop still does not work with another adapter then the laptop itself will heed repair.

Laptop won't power on

A few things to try:
First remove the battery from the laptop plug in the power adapter and see if it powers up without the battery in. If this works there is a problem with the battery or the battery driver. If it works login go to device manager and disable the Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery. If battery works then it was the driver if still fails its a dead battery.
Try with just the battery it is probably dead though as its had no power to charge it.
Check if the power adapter has a light on it some have lights that indicate its receiving power. Also check if the lights on the laptop to say the battery is charging even though you indicated it isnt.
Let me know how you go or if you need further help.

No power

Hi 1trainer2nv,

I have been having the EXACT same problem with my Toshiba notebook (Satellite A135-S4527). At first, I thought it was an issue regarding my AC adapter. But after getting it checked out by a certified Toshiba service technician, he diagnosed it as an issue dealing with the component on the motherboard that corresponds to the power supply. For me, the problem was that the computer's cooling fan was not as efficient/powerful as it should have been for the system. This resulted in the eventual overheating of some of the hardware components. From what I hear, Toshiba is notorious for not equipping their laptops with adequate fans. The technician estimated that it would cost at least $300 to resolve the issue. He also told me that an external laptop fan that slides under your notebook could have mitigated the overheating.

Fortunately, I have still been able to use my laptop even though this problem has been affecting my notebook for the better part of four months. What I have been doing is running the laptop solely on battery power, not from power provided by the AC adapter. Don't ask me how this has been working -- I have no idea. And the good thing is that I am still able to charge my battery when the laptop is shut off. When the system is unable to receive power, however, I remove the battery from the computer and I leave the AC adapter unplugged for at least 24 hours. Then after jiggling the adapter around in the computer's power input hole and/or inserting it multiple times until I see a solid blue light for the power signal, I will reinsert my battery for charging.

I cannot guarantee that this will also work for your system, but it's surely worth a try. I hope this helped and best of luck!
