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.

AC Adapter issues Q & A.


<p><b>Laptop switching to battery while connected to AC adapter</b><br /> <p><b>Q.</b> While turned on, the laptop will switch to battery power even if connected with the AC adaptor (sometimes during boot-up, or after a while) until the battery drains out, he then goes to hibernation (the battery light is off). If no battery in the laptop, it will shut down, and the AC light will blink very fast. The battery (li-ion) will only charge up to 10%, where it then jumps right up to 100%, and will discharge from 100% to 90% then jump to 0%, go to hibernation, and fails to complete the process, shutting down. The adaptor makes a small "camera flash charging" sound, stabilizing at 19v. When charging, it repeatedly makes the "charging sound" Faulty AC adaptor? Or Faulty battery? Or Both?<br /> <p><b>A. </b>First problem: The laptop switches to battery power even with connected AC adapter. Most likely you have a faulty power jack. It's either broken or loose. It's a known issue with laptops and you can fix it by replacing/resoldering the power jack or relocating it outside laptop case.<br /> <p>It also could be a problem with the power cord. Find a multimeter and check the AC adapter. See if the power cuts off when you jiggle the power cord. If it does, replace the adapter.<br /> <p>Second problem: The battery will discharge from 100% to 90% and then jump to 0%. It sounds like a bad battery.<br /> <p><b>Battery charging light is on even when power adapter is unplugged and laptop is stitched off</b><br /> <p><b>Q.</b>The yellow light for battery charging does not go even after switching the laptop off and power jack is disconnected. Battery does not charge at all with power source connected. <br /> <p><b>A.</b> First of all, try reconnection the battery if you haven't done it already.<br />The battery plugs directly into the connector attached to the motherboard. If the battery charging light stay on even when the power adapter is unplugged and the laptop is switched off, it's either bad battery or something is wrong with the motherboard. The only way to find the culprit is testing the laptop with another known good battery.<br /> <p>Also, you can try this. Remove the battery and plug in the power adapter. If the battery charging LED lights up even when the battery is removed, most likely you have a problem with the motherboard.<br /> <p><b>Battery charges only when the laptop is off</b><br /> <p><b>Q.</b> Bought a Laptop without AC Adapter. I noticed it would charge the battery OK when the laptop was off but once in windows it would not charge the battery.<br /> <p><b>A.</b> This is very important to choose the right AC adapter for your laptop. The output voltage MUST be exactly the same. If your laptop requires 18.5V you must use 18.5V adapter. The amperage should be the same or higher. If the laptop requires 4.74A adapter, you'll have to find an adapter which provides 4.74A or MORE. <br /> <p><b>While using AC adapter alone or battery alone, laptop works. While using them together, I am getting a problem.</b><br /> <p><b>Q.</b> While using AC adapter alone or battery alone, laptop works. However while using them together, laptop LED lights blinks and the power meter for battery drops down immediately to 0% critical level, whereas the battery LED indicator says it's full. I tried to unplug the AC adaptor while it went down to 0%, then the power meter for the battery came back to normal 85%.<br /> <p><b>A.</b> There could be a few different reasons why it happens:<br />1. It might be an issue with the BIOS. Make sure the laptop has the latest version of BIOS installed, update it if needed.<br />2. It might be a software related issue. If you have some kind of power management utility installed try uninstalling it and use Windows power management utility instead. Also I would try reinstalling the operating system if upgrading the BIOS or removing the power management utility does not help.<br />3. If you still experience the same problem even after upgrading the BIOS and reinstalling Windows, most likely you have a problem with the motherboard. Apparently the charging circuit is not working properly. I assume it's not a problem with the battery. You'll have to check the motherboard in this case. <br /> <p><b>Problem with my battery. 100% to about 40% the battery discharging normally then suddenly from 40% it drop directly to 2%.</b><br /> <p><b>Q.</b> When I use only on battery, from 100% to about 40% the battery discharging normally (last about 1 hour) then suddenly from 40% it drop directly to 2%.<br />When I plug the AC cord, it won't directly charge (the charge LED is still not on). After 10 to 20 minutes it then starts to charge the battery (the indicator say that it can be charged to 100%).<br />If I turn-off the laptop and then charge the battery, it won't also directly charge but the delay is much shorter (maybe just about 1-2 minutes).<br />Is this the sign of a bad battery (when hot it can't be charged?) or maybe a bad AC adapter (not enough power to charge the battery when the laptop is turned on?)<br />Note that this symptom is always repeating when I use the laptop.<br /> <p><b>A.</b> From the first part of your complaint description I can see that you have a bad battery. The percentage might vary, but the process of discharging is the same - the battery discharges fine until some point and then the remaining charge suddenly drops to the minimum. You'll have to replace the battery.<br />I'm not sure about the second part. Probably it's a battery related problem too. Just in case check if there is a newer version of BIOS available for your laptop. If you find one, upgrade the BIOS. <br /> <p><b>The battery is 100% charged but it will die within a few minutes as soon as the laptop is unplugged.</b><br /> <p><b>Q.</b> When I unplug the power it will run off the battery, the battery icon says it is 100% charged and I have 2+ hrs remaining, but within a few minutes I get the "critical battery level" message and it will die. When I plug it back into AC power the battery charge light comes on (and will remain on for over a hour), but I will have the same problem with it dying as soon as it is unplugged. Do I need a new battery?<br /> <p><b>A.</b> It looks like you have a bad battery. Here are some behaviors typical for a dying laptop battery:<br />1. The battery charges normally (according to the battery icon) but as soon as you unplug the laptop, it dies almost momentarily.<br />2. The battery charges normally. When you unplug the laptop, it discharges normally until some point and after that point starts discharging very fast.

Nc6000 multibay battery does not recharge


Perhaps remove the multi-bay battery, and let main battery charge all the way. Then reattach multi-bay battery, and see if it's recognized.
(Will charge)

That is AC adapter (Charger) removed, then remove multi-bay battery.
Plug AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug AC adapter into power.

[You do Not want to unplug an AC adapter from a laptop, with the AC adapter plugged into power. Could be a power surge/voltage spike. Unplug AC adapter from power, when plugging into laptop, or unplugging from laptop ]

Main battery charged, unplug power to AC adapter, unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug multi-bay battery in, then AC adapter.
(Then plug AC adapter into power)

I was just kind of chilling on my laptop most of the day. And it kept like running outta battery like it normally kinda does every now and again. I kept it plugged in most of the day but it wouldn't...


Make sure the ac adapter is correctly plugged into the notebook and into the power cord.


If everything is plugged in correctly and it still will not power on, follow these steps to complete a 'power reset' of the notebook.

  1. Unplug the ac adapter. Keep ac adapter unplugged.
  2. Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
  3. Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
  4. Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
  5. Normally power on the notebook.
  6. If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
  7. Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up.
    If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.

My Acer Aspire 5735z battery won't charge!


Your adapter port might have been improperly adjusted. Jiggle the cord around in there while it's plugged in to see if the plugged in light comes on. If it does then that's your problem. You can prob things under it to keep it at that point for a quick fix but I'd recommend a local computer shop for repairs.

No power. Adapter light flashes when connected to laptop


thanks for using fixya!!

Please do and observe the following:

1. Uninstall the battery pack.
2. Then, connect the AC adapter, we will try to use the power coming from the AC, then turn on your laptop.
3. Observe what will happen.
4. If still doesn't work, install again the battery, then connect the AC adapter, check if its going to work.
5. If not, perhaps you have a problem neither with the battery or the AC adapter.

I suggest that you bring your laptop to a service center. Good luck!

pls rate me positively! thanks!

I CANNOT OPEN!!!


Hi, Try running you laptop with the battery and the AC adapter. If by plugging in your adapter there is no light indicator likewise or no powering up, then presumably there is a problem with the power supply circuitry in the motherboard. Normally the laptop should work with just the adapter, just the battery or both the battery and the adapter. If it will not perhaps your best bet is to seek professional repair service since this would require opening the motherboard. In most instances, this involves an smc fusible link, regulator transistors or even just cold solder or loose connections. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
