Laptop will not charge battery. Issue with internal power converter, etc.

The motherboard has charging circuits built in to regulate the charge to the main battery, in rare causes it fails leaving a choice to attempt a repair or replace the motherboard. I suspect this is what has happened to your system.

Acer aspire 5935g battery problem

Many users do not use their notebook/notebook batteries correctly. The battery in a laptop/notebook/netbook is a rechargeable battery, like the battery in a Cellphone, a Digital Camera an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player. This type of battery needs to both charge and discharge, if it is to perform to its maximum capacity and have a full, long life.

You would never dream of using a Cellphone, Digital Camera, an eReader or an MP3/MP4/MP5 Player only with the devices permanently connected to the mains electricity, because they are all devices that are designed to be used while the user is moving around whether indoors or outdoors, powered by their rechargeable batteries. the batteries of such devices are only recharged when the charge in their cells is depleted and then only for as long as it takes to restore full charge to them.

As with the other devices mentioned, a laptop/notebook/netbook's battery is designed for mobile use and the user should charge it to 100% full and then stop charging it to then use the device on battery power alone, until the battery is low on power, when the recharging cycle can then be repeated.

A notebook/netbook has more flexibility than the other devices mentioned because, unlike the other devices, it can also be powered directly from the mains electricity, without the battery installed.

If your laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used away from the home or office, it is fine to leave the battery permanently installed. If, however, it is mainly used indoors at home or at work and always or almost always on exactly the same desk or table, then it makes little sense to use it either on battery power alone or with the battery permanently installed.

Charge the battery up to full charge and then disconnect the battery from the device and keep it safely for when you next need to use the laptop/notebook/netbook on the move (if the battery is stored for long periods it may require additional recharging to both maintain the battery's condition and to keep it fully charged because low level power dissipation takes place in a disconnected battery). Then connect the device to the mains electricity without the battery and continue using it like that.

If the laptop/notebook/netbook is mainly used in a single permanent indoor location, then charging has to stop when the battery has reached 100% full charge and should only be resumed when the device gives a low battery charge warning.

It is also important not to let rechargeable batteries drain completely by ignoring the low battery charge warming and continuing to use the device until the battery runs out of charge and the device powers down suddenly. Sudden shutdowns like this are neither good for the battery nor the device and can shorten the lifespan of both.

Continuing to charge any rechargeable battery when it has already been fully charged damages and shortens the life of the battery. It can even damage the internal Power Management System of the device if done over a sustained period of time and/or for prolonged periods of time.

When your notebook only shows 75% as the maximum charging level, this is an indication that one or more (probably two) of the individual cells that make up the battery are fully depleted, damaged and probably no longer capable of storing a charge, for the reasons given above. You should stop charging this battery after it has reached 75%, otherwise more cells are likely to become damaged and so on until the entire battery is dead, unresponsive and useless.

Does not work without battery, recognizes that its plugged into charger and says its charging but its not

Hello, Thank You for using
Many times the case would be with the battery itself. A replacement battery could help your case here. A battery not being charged means the cells inside the battery are damaged from age, overcharging and other common issues.
I would first replace the battery, if the battery is new and its doing this then the charging unit inside the Toshiba is defective and would need a motherboard swap out. Mother boards for this unit could be crazy expensive. So it would be wise to replace the battery if that has not been done first.
Please update me with what you find.

Is it alright to keep the battery in the battery compartment even if it's fully charged or I have to remove it when using AC power?

There is no need of removing the battery from your notebook. Only thing you have to remember is dont use your notebook so much in ac power it can reduce your battery life. Use your laptop in battery till the battery power gets drained and then connect to ac power for charging and at the same time use your notebook in ac power. But avoid much connecting your notebook in ac power. It helps in maintiaining your battery stable.

HP Pavilion DV5000 battery charging problem

Sounds like you need to calibrate the battery, it is supposed to be done every 3 months. If it is not done, your battery will display the same symptoms are you describe. Yes, this holds true for adding a new battery also.

Here is HP's instructions on how to do it. You want to scroll down to the section called "Calibrate the notebook PC battery".

Use a voltmeter to check your charger. If it is producing what is marked on it, then the charging circuit in the Dell motherboard has gone bad.

Replacement of the external charger is easy, the motherboard needs to be done in the shop.

Keyboard and Touchpad not working

When the batteries on that laptop no longer hold a charge it will cause teh problem you indicated. Remove the battery and restart from the AC power to check. If that fixes the problem you need to go into the devive manager and turn off the Microsoft battery manager. This will allow you to reinstall the battery without the problem.

Battery not charging

How old is the battery? If this laptop is a couple of years old, you may need a replacement, depending on how many recharge cycles have been done.
