Question about MSI M510C Notebook

Battery overheating during recharge

I have an MSI M510C laptop computer with an ongoing issue of overheating the battery when recharging when the laptop is still powered up. Here's the scenario;
I charge up my battery overnight, it will then last about 2 1/2 hours. I get an indicator on screen saying I need to switch to alternate power. Fine, I plug in my AC adapter (I know it's the right one too PA-1650-02). Now, if I don't put my laptop in standby mode or shut it down it will begin overheating within about 1/2 hour and the yellow indicator flashes on the box. I lose so much time every day waiting for my silly laptop to recharge I'm about to throw it in the trash heap. Is there something wrong with the battery, the AC adapter or is this a normal condition for this type of laptop? I know the lithium batteries have a history of overheating, can they be replaced with something safer? Thank you!

I think these MSI a6200 are a piece of junk. It constantly overheats. I changed the fan but it still overheats just watching a youtube video too long.

It sounds to me like there may be a problem with the charging circuit which is usually on the mainboard.

I went to MSI but was unable to find any information that on that model.

I believe there are two solutions:

1. Contact MSI to see if there is a BIOS update to repair that problem.

2. If there is not BIOS update and the computer is still under warranty I would send it in to have the mainboard replaced.

My msi windnotebook is always 0% charge


If the laptop 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.

Overheating whilst on charge


The problem sounds like the battery is the issue, if it works normally without the main battery plugged in, then the rechargeable battery is suspect, go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop, refine search to battery.

My laptop is overheating


The rechargeable battery is at fault and needs to be replaced. This will occur even when the laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet. As, the battery is trying to recharge.

To avoid damage to your laptop, stop using it until the battery is replaced.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Battery cannot be recharged.


OK, Batteries have cycles and these get depleated by recharging thus once there all gone well the battery will not charge. The facts here 9 timeso ut of 10 it would be the battery but I will not holdthat over your head. Take it to a camera shop and discover it for yourself as what you going to end up doing anyhow. If it where the charger I would reckon it would not even try the first time.

Thanks and please be considerate when leaving a postive rating and feedback

When I turn on my MSI M510C notebook - I get this message "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key" and cannot do anything else. Can someone t


I've read this problem due to new hardware interferences with desktop computers, all they had to do is change a few pins around on the harddrives.. since this is a laptop, and is quite difficult and dodgy to access the hardware, the only other suggestion is to reinstall windows with a recovery disk, or windows CD-ROM.

Hope this helps :)
