Usually laptop batteries lasts about 500 cycles with good performance. If your battery last than a year old and used less than 500 cycles you can look for warranty replacement. Also BIOS update will be good option to enhance battery life and charge capabilities. If you need further assistance please post your question.

Good Luck

Battery not recognised/not charging


Turn the computer off, unplug it, take the battery out. Then hold the power button down for 10 - 15 seconds. Plug the ac adapter back in, but do not put the battery in yet. Boot the computer, then shut it back down. Put the battery back in then boot it again. It should recognize the system now.

Gateway NV5378u lap top, brand new battery installed and status says 100% charged. When I unplug the computer it shuts off as if there is no battery. Could the new battery be defective?


There are a few things to check. The LED lights can tell you a lot. This will tell you more about the battery:
  1. On the taskbar, double-click the power cord icon or battery icon to open the Power Meter dialog box. Note: If the power cord icon or battery icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons button.
  2. Press Fn+STATUS to view the power status box, which opens in the upper-left corner of the screen. The power status box shows the current power source, the battery charge level, and the power management mode.
  3. Look at the battery charge indicator (if applicable).
    • LED green - Battery is fully charged.
    • LED orange - Battery is charging.
    • LED blinking red - Battery charge is very low.
    • LED solid red - Battery is malfunctioning. Note: This LED only lights up when the notebook is connected to AC power.
  4. Press the battery meter button on the battery. The battery meter lights indicate the percentage of battery charge remaining.
  5. Wait for a Low Battery warning message to appear.
If your battery charge indicator displays what looks like an inaccurate charge, you may need to recalibrate the battery.

To recalibrate the battery as mentioned, try this:
  1. Connect the AC adapter and then turn on the notebook.
  2. As soon as it starts and you see a startup screen, press the F2 key.
  3. In the BIOS Setup utility, use the TAB key to select the Advanced menu.
  4. On the Advanced menu, select Battery Auto Learning, and then press the SPACEBAR to select Enabled.
  5. Use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu. On the Exit menu select Exit Saving Changes, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the Setup Confirmation prompt, select Yes, and then press ENTER.
  7. The battery recalibration process begins and a screen opens showing you the progress.
  8. When the recalibration has finished, and the message "Press [Esc] key to exit" appears, press Esc. The battery charge indicator now displays an accurate battery charge.

Hope this helps!!

The rechargeable battery needs to be replaced, the old one is just about exhausted. Go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop, refine search to battery, and I recommend sticking with new genuine.

Hiiiiiiiii......my hp dv6-2165tx battery does not charge properly.......when i plugged in it shows charging but after some time it shows not charging &plugged in.........why


Hello,
You may need to diagnose the status of your battery.
Press control+Shift+Delete to do so. Make sure it is plugged in.
If it reports the health is good, then it is the heat sink responsible for the problem. Get your laptop serviced at the service centre.
If it says primary battery not detected and health 'Replace', your battery may be old enough to be replaced.
If the battery backup has reduced drastically within past few days, then you need to get the battery replaced.
your battery may be covered in your HP warranty.

One thing you need to know is that, plugged in & not charging is a safety step taken by HP to ensure that your computer doesn't get overheated. So, you don't need to worry much unless it is persistant.
Again, kindly use your laptop while keeping it on a hard surface so that the processor fan & exhaust doesn't get blocked.
Reagards.

Hello i have a charging problem in my Acer TravelMate 4150 model,its 3 yrs old. Its not being charged at all,i mean its battery is nt gaining charge. suppose the charge level is 60%,so inspite of plugging...


Well, this is happening to another laptop i know. if you remove the battery and order a new one and replace it it should work. Its probably just a dodgy battery. While you have the battery out, you will need to use the power cable all the time. This just happens to some batteries. Thats just my advice anyway.

PS: I am only 99.9% sure this is the right thing to do. I would check at a computer repair place too or battery world.

Usb problem


Often this is an electrostatic charge problem on usb hub.
To solve it:
On PC disconnect power cable for 30 mins or so from power outlet.
On laptop, disconnect from power and remove latop battery for 15 mins or so.
If it still does not work, then it may be faulty root hub on motherboard.
