Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook
This is the 2nd new battery. Probably not the battery.
My toshiba a45-s250 notebook works normally with the original batter with the exception that the battery life is now about 30-50 minutes.
A new compatible battery was purchased. After installation and full charge, the battery ICON shows FULL CHARGE. The notebook will not fully boot when on BATTERY only. It can be booted with the A/C connected but if the A/C is disconnected it abruptly shutdown (no messages) after 3-5 minutes of use.
Swapping back to the original battery returns the functions of the notebook back to normal w/o the benefits of a longer battery life.
Any IDEAs... BTW, I removed and reinstalled the BATTERY from the SYSTEM PROPERTIES->HARDWARE->DEVICE MANAGER without any change.
Your batter may never have been broken in appropriately; Acer, in the fine print, says that to break it in, you must fully charge it, then let it drain completely 3 times! Then you can use it normally. Since most Li ion batteries work the same, this could be a general rule. My notebook tells me when it is fully charged--you don't have to guess.

Better you first charge the battery for 16 to 17 hours and recheck the same. If problem persists, change the battery from where you bought it. that battery is faulty. And yes there is no need to install the battery from device manager. Just open the battery compartment and replace the battery with new one.
