Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery failure I've had my laptop for 11 months now and about a month ago the battery stopped holding power. If it's fully charged and I unplug it the computer is down to 25% in less than 20 minutes. Is there anything I try first before just going out and buying a new battery?

Yes perhaps you can be sure if you BIOS up to date. latest version of BIOS is v1.20. This version has several important fixes including critical battery wake up. You can obtain the BIOS from Toshiba support website. I am adding the direct link for your convenience.

BIOS update is a critical process that you should close other applications and make sure computer is on AC power. the update process takes few minutes.

If the Issue persists after BIOS update you can think about replacing the battery, Just to remind you that usually brand new laptops warranty covers the battery for a year. So you have said that its only 11 months, you can think about using warranty.

Sounds like a loose connection where the laptop opens and closes hinge there are wires that run from the main screen to the main board. If you know how to take the unit apart it maybe a cheap fix if not then a new laptop maybe the way to go the prices have really dropped from 4 years ago

Then, it should be FULLY covered under WARRANTY, either from the store from where you bought it, or from ACER.

It's probably 100% fine; it's your laptop that is the problem.

Exercise the WARRANTY to get the laptop repaired/replaced, at NO COST to you.

Lithium batteries mustn't be fully discharged or it can loss the possibility to recharge it: only every 2-3 months you have to dischage it until the pc shuts down and then recharge to preserve its capacity. Is normal that in the battery remain some volts but ther's no sufficent ampere to make works the pc, listen if someone has different ideas but I think you've to buy another one.

Acer Aspire 5738Z won't hold charge


Sorry. It seems that your battery is dead.
If your laptop is working fine on AC power only (with the battery disconnected), then your battery will need to be replaced.

BATTERY FAILURE PURCHASED JUNE 2007


Your battery pack has a typical life-span determined more in hours of use than by length of time owned. When they're near the end they won't hold a charge. This happens with cordless phones, cell phones etc. Batteries also come in different sizes (capacity/lifespan). People also use their machines and batteries differently - so it's hard to compare with someone else. When you get a new battery, get a higher capacity and use the power cord to keep the laptop charging as much as possible. - hope this helps :)
