Laptop batteries typically need to be replaced every couple of years or so.

Much like cellphones, if you overcharge them then you can ultimately kill cells and keep if from holding any juice.

Good way to keep this from happening in the future is by simply monitoring the amount of charge your battery has while its docked at an outlet.
IF it has a full charge simply take it out and use it on ac power and reserve the battery life for when you need to be mobile.

A new battery can be found either on ebay or directly through the manufacturer. Steer clear from off-brand replacements as I have typically seen a high failure rate.

Hope this helps.

ES65 restore firmware


Perhaps you still remember the add from IBM. Where the son says, or we put in the power plug!!! There are more errors with portable equipment caused by empty batteries than all other causes together.
Please remove the battery and charge the battery, before placing it back. And even when the charger indicates the battery is full, it is no 100 % guaranty it is. Even almost new batteries, can lose capacity within minutes. Those are defect and most of the time not to recover.
Be aware, to change firmware, if it should be available, you need a working camera. And a fully charged battery, because if during the update the battery runs out of power, your camera won't work again, without an intervention of the repair shop.
Make it a habit to charge the batterie at least every 3 months, even if you don't use the camera for a longer period.

Check all fuse box connections, battery terminals and leads. Also check age of battery. If it has too much silt in the bottom of it (corrosion) then it may be shorting within.

Check all fuses in your power box. Sounds like could be electrical short. Check connections and grounds to alternator and starter and battery. Also check coils, plugs etc.

Once resolved, try a can of SeaFoam from Canadian tire $12.00..put half in a full tank of gas and the other half in your oil. Do this when the engine is warm, not hot. Let it sit for 30 minutes then take it for a 10 minute drive and see the difference. Save hundreds in injector flushing. This should alleviate the hard starts.cheers.

The issue here could be a capacitor within the power circuit. Also could be a power transistor that is faulty. On the easy part it could be a matter of reprogramming the unit but I doubt it.

I will drive for about a mile with full power with little power lose.then all of a sudden,ill have extreme power loss . within 1quarter mile ill lose all power.something drains the batteries


Batteries do not provide a linear output during usage, but having it die out within a mile or so tells me that one of the battery cells is becoming weaker than the rest. If you're a handyman, you can save yourself a ton of money by replacing only the batteries (try interstate batteries) instead of going to the scooter store and purchasing the batteries and case.

Acer Aspire One PC Notebook- Mini 1GB, WXP


Hi,

This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge.
Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.
