Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

3 Answers

Battery loses charge witin one minute.

After a number of months of trouble-free use, a computer battery charge problem developed. When the Sony Viao computer was first unplugged from the AC adptor, the battery indicator read 99%. Within one minute's use, the indicator read 0% and the computer powered down. I bought a new Li-ion replacement battery which first seemed to solve the problem, but the same problem returned within two months. This is the second battery experiencing the same problem, so the problem may not be the battery. Any suggetions?

    This solution does not seem to take into account that both times the problem only manifested after a few months of trouble-free use.

    Hey super-guy,



    Your diagnosis is correct. I thought that the computer/Li-ion battery had a built-in safeguard to protect from over charging. Is my only soution to purchase a third new battery, or can the current battery be reclaimed?



    Thanks,



    Mike

The battery is most likely faulty. If the pc works when plugged in but battery won't charge, then battery is dead. If the unit does not charge or power on, then the power supply itself is faulty. You can get both at amazon.com or newegg.com

Curious. Is the computer plugged in all the time with the battery in as well? If it stays plugged in while on the battery, the life of the battery is drastically reduced because the computer is continually charging the battery the entire time it's plugged in.

I HAVE SONY WALKMAN NWD-B103F- BATTERY DOES NOT LAST FOR 10 MINUTES-AFTER CHARGING ON COMPUTER


The battery does not hold charge. It is weak. Replace it with same type number. Brand name of the battery isn't a matter, check its type number printed on it.

Rechargeable lithium battery goes off after 3 minutes


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Sony Viao laptop just started shutting itself down while I was working on a word document. Laptop will not stay on more than a minute or two after booting up even if nothing is open. Battery is charged


Disconnect external devices. Remove battery and power cord. Then reposition them again. Be sure battery is locked with the switch at the bottom of the unit. Keep charger connected. If issue continues it may require service.
If you can see VGN-CS on the upper left corner of the lid (your unit's model number) you will need to call Sony as this is a known issue

Our Super Gaucho 24volts is 2-years-old and barely used. Now the battery is not lasting to long. Is this normal? I mean, with a more frequent charging/use will its performance be improved? Thx ahead &...


Unfortunately the batteries just lose their holding power after awhile, and if you don't keep them charged every few months (like during winter if your child isn't riding, you still need to charge / refresh the battery every 2 months or so, if it isn't charged for a few months, it'll lose some of it's holding power), that's a very common problem. Our 24V Perego batteries for our Gaucho only seem to last like 30 minutes of constant riding (my son rides non stop sometimes for 30+ minutes). If you check out the site modifiedpowerwheels.com , people convert them to use non Perego batteries that run for much longer!

My Sony Viao wont stay charged and when i try to power it up, it shuts down by itself at the sign in screen. It wont let me get past the sign in screen,


Are you using a Sony Battery or an aftermarket cheaper version?
If your battery has been changed to a different brand then thats your problem and a whole problem in itself.Not saying there is anything wrong with that, but the Sony ISBmngr.exe file will stop the charging of any battery exept Sony's and put the system into hibernation mode. ( website with Info below)....
If you have the original manufacturers battery then go on.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the typical charging-plug, jack, for laptops. Many times the plug itself is bumped over time and pushes on the pin in the center. The charging time becomes very short, if at all, because the connection is broken.Some are completely or because of the position of the wire holding it just right long enough to give a short charge.

32917b9.png With a Voltmeter ,check the output of the charger itself to be sure it is working properly.
Although VIAO has been out for a while & because the model was not listed here the age of the battery may also be in question. If the battery has shorted out and the charging unit & jack are fine then a bad battery that has shorted will cause you symptoms also. Try removing the battery and running on the charger alone.
Here are a couple of sites that I found that deal with Sony VIAO's

When powering up just shuts off


you should have let it dry completely before powering it up, eventually the Power supply card(voltage regulator) got wet and stopped working, you need to have it replaced, it's not a battery problem even though the ps card might have damaged the battery a bit.
