Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

Starting up computer

I have had my computer for about 2 years. Just recently I have had problems starting up my computer. The lithium battery has full power on it but the computer will not start or if it does start it immediately shuts off after 15 sec. Do you have any suggestions because I recently cleaned up the computer with some anti-virus protection software and it had been working until I started having this problem. Any suggestions?

It wont charge the battery, it says its using AC power. I cant use it unless its plugged in..

If the computer is telling you that it is plugged in but the battery won't hold a charge the most likely explanation is that your battery is either spent (if it is older than two years) or it is defective (if it is a new battery).

The Most Important Considerations of Using Laptop Battery

1, when no external power supply situation, if the working conditions at the time slot being less than PCMCIA cards, it is recommended to remove the card first to extend battery life.
2, room temperature (20-30 degrees) for optimum battery working temperature, the temperature is too high or too low, the operating environment will reduce battery time.
3, can provide stable power supply environment, using a laptop computer, remove the battery for extended battery life is not right by. On Asus notebooks, when fully charged battery, the battery charging circuit will automatically shut down, so the phenomenon of overcharging does not occur.
4, the recommended average of three months to conduct a battery power correction action.
5, to minimize the number of NIKON en-el3e battery
The battery charge and discharge is directly related to life, one charge, the battery a step forward to retirement. Suggest that you use an external power supply,
6, the use of an external power supply when the battery removed.
Some users often plug the power several times a day, and the laptop is equipped with batteries, do more damage to the battery. Because each access to the equivalent of an external power supply to charge the battery once the battery life shortened by a natural.
7, after the exhaustion of battery charge and avoid the long charging time
Regardless of your notebook to use nickel-metal hydride or lithium electricity, to power after the exhaustion of a certain charge (charge less than 1%), which is the best way to avoid the memory effect. Lithium also have memory effect, but its memory effect smaller than nickel-metal hydride Bale.
8, the usual precautions
When used in peacetime to prevent exposure to prevent damp to prevent the erosion of chemical liquids, avoid contact with the metal battery contacts, etc. happen.
When you purchase your laptop battery
Laptop battery life - as no more than 3 to 4 years, it may be users of the most likely to replace things. Two years after the laptop, you will find the battery consumption and faster. If possible, you can replace the old batteries for new batteries to ensure the stable operation of the computer.
When the need to replace the notebook computer batteries, best to choose the same type of battery replacement. However, if the old computer using a nickel-metal hydride batteries, to make a longer battery life, of course, can also be specified by the computer user manual or manufacturers recommended models use lithium batteries. Although the nickel-metal hydride batteries for cheap, but there is memory effect, and in the same capacity than the lithium batteries under the weight of large, and lithium batteries have no memory effect, light weight, power supply for a long time, etc., has become a standard notebook computer batteries . Lithium batteries used in notebook computers at this stage because the different manufacturers in the power of time there are some gaps, and friends in the purchase process should be noted that different brands of the difference in the Sony vgp-bsp13/s Battery, the best among several brands compare.
Performance battery power supply in addition to the stated time manufacturers, but also need to pay attention to their capacity. Battery capacity is usually AH (ampere-hour, ampere-hour) calculated with the current laptop is 4000AH most about, and a battery can last for 2 hours or more. In addition to the battery power supply time by the whole power of computers and the impact of factors such as heat dissipation, the screen size (bigger and more power), screen brightness, and the implementation of the work and so will affect the power of time.
Now the price of laptop battery up and down the ocean in 1000, accounting to 10% of overall price notebook - about some of the ultra-thin models or even higher. The battery warranty period, is guaranteed 3 months, and is guaranteed six months, the longest, but also for 1 year; the reason why the warranty time is short battery laptop battery is easy because of consumables, the number of charge is constant, with a little time. Moreover, the laptop battery and other hardware different, there is no room for repairs, can only be a new one. The products of such a long warranty (replacement), intangibles to increase the burden on manufacturers, so buy laptop, be sure ask the battery warranty period and conditions.
Also in the purchase of second-hand laptop computers, they also do not forget to try it inside the battery can continue to work long. Under normal circumstances, the use of one or two years after the laptop is fully charged, the nickel-metal hydride battery can support about 1 hour or so computers at work, lithium-ion battery can support nearly 3 hours, but relative to the terms of this new battery requirements are already very low, and able to meet this target from the scrap to the battery of far away.
Causes of Damage Laptop Battery
Notebook computer CANON nb-6l battery a long time, often charge less for electricity, and even shows the battery is damaged, the specific performance of a larger resistance, the voltage across the charging up faster. So easy to charge control circuit is judged to have been filled, the capacity will naturally decline. Since the battery internal resistance is relatively large, the discharge voltage drop when a large, fast, so the system is easy to mistakenly believe that the voltage is not enough, lack of electricity. Comparison of the discovery of short battery life, should take appropriate measures.

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.

Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

There is an issue with the laptop charging circuit as the machine indicated plugged in, charging. However, it did not charge at all. Laptop work fine with AC Adaptor.

How old is your battery? Lithium ion based batteries normal life is 2 years starting from the date of manufacture, sometimes even less. Try using another battery and see if it will charged properly. You can also use the adapter in a compatible laptop and check if it will charge the battery.

My computer alerts that the battery is low, then goes to hibernate. Even though it is plugged in to AC, AND/OR the battery is at 99% power seconds before? What's wrong?

1. the battery wasn't charged properly the first time that is it didn't get a full 24 hour charge.
2. The battery is defective and is giving an incorrect reading.
3. Usually the batteries are Lithium Ion batteries and have what is called "smart
technology and have electronic logic built into the case which is read by the computer to
give indication of status of the batteries.
4. I suggest that you contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Some Lithium batteries
from that manufacturer are in "recall status".
5. check the manufacturer site for the recall list and if your model PC is on the list request
a replacement battery.

My toshiba laptop computer has very short battery life when it is not plugged in. It will also shut off quite frequently at times and will take a while to restart (it will turn on but it takes a few tries...

How old is the battery? Most laptops and notebooks only have a 3 year battery life, and if you have run it down too far, or never ran it down at all, the life can be even shorter than that. With nicad they say it is best to use them until they stop working. But lithium batteries are best kept topped up I hear. If the batter is over 2 years old, time to replace I think.

Battery with HP Pavillion DV5000 won't work. Do I need to replace the battery or is there a battery charger I could use to recharge the battery? Dianne

You can order a power cable online or pick one up at your local computer store. They should run between $80-150. The battery itself is very expensive to purchase but is rechargeable.

Making a CMOS battery for Toshiba Satellite 2150

first I would recomend that you cut open the battery pack and copy what they did in the arrangement of the batteries if they are a series/ parallel combination without a spot welder a solid connection will be hard to accomplish. but lithium batteries will work your computer does not know the difference or care. if it is not up your allley, I would recomend taking the battery to a battery plus store they can build you a batery that will fit your laptop. They do a good job.
