Question about Computers & Internet

Plugged in, not charging

My lg R500 notebook, just died on me while running on the battery (without any warning whatsoever). When restarted, with cable cord connected, the indicator in the toolbar says "0% available (plugged in, not charging)". --> I must now have the cable cord connected all the time for the computer to run.
I've tried to clean the battery, start without the battery in place, uninstall/reinstall the MS ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery.
None of the above has worked?!
Help much appreciated!

Running on vista.

You may have a DC connector problem:

Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

Computer just died.. no lights whatsoever. power


Take out the battery and try to start from the charger - if it's the same then you had a major hardware failure , most likely your motherboard has died. You need to take it to a repair shop for a precise diagnose and repair.

No power whatsoever, but...


Try taking the battery out and running the laptop with just the AC adapter.

Also you should use a multimeter to test your AC adapter for voltage. If there is voltage from your AC adapter and the unit will not turn on with the battery removed then you have a faulty motherboard or another component in the laptop.

If it works without the battery all you need to get is a new battery or live with it without battery.

Battery life is very short


Not really. What happened is you shorted the life of the battery by always having it plugged in and in a charging state. The battery has a memory and since it's always been plugged in, it will never charge fully. There are products out there that will drain your battery down and reset the memory issue. But it would be cheaper to get another battery. If you are going to keep it plugged in the majority of the time, charge up the battery and remove it.
