If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

    Does the laptop work when it is connected to the mains adapter?

    If it boots up properly then the charging circuit in the laptop is faulty. This is a motherboard problem. I would suggest you get this repaired under Warranty even is it is slightly out of Warranty.

    In my country we have a Trade Practices Act which forces manufacturers to fix/replace faulty products.

Lenovo z570 not powering on


Measure the voltage at the AC Adapter plug, and see if it is within 5-10% of the rated voltage. If the voltage is not correct, then the battery will most likely not be charging, and the system will drain the battery and die in the middle of what it was doing...booting in your case.

You can tell how much voltage is remaining in your battery and if it is charging by checking the blinking of the battery status light.
Download the Hardware Maintenance Manual here:
http://download.lenovo.com/UserFiles/UserGuide/en/User%27s%20guides%20and%20manuals/Z370&Z470&Z570/Lenovo%20Z370Z470Z570%20Hardware%20Maintenance%20Manual%20V1.0.pdf
and go to page 30 and look at item 7 under battery status for blinking light meaning.
1. Blinking amber: (500ms off/1s on)
The remaining power of the battery is less than 5% of
its capacity.
2. Blinking amber: (100ms off/3.2s on)
The battery is being charged with the remaining
power between 5% and 20% of its capacity.
3. Amber: The computer is operating on battery power with the
remaining power between 5% and 20% of its
capacity


With the AC Adapter plugged in, and giving the correct voltage, If you are getting 1. Blinking Amber (light on for 1 sec, off for 1/2 second), then the battery is not being charged. Could be AC Adapter, Battery or Battery Circuit on motherboard. If the light is solid on 3. Amber, then the battery is not charging, and is draining.

Also make sure the power socket on the laptop is not loose or damaged. If it is, then it will need to be replaced.

I hope this gets you in the right direction.

Laptop will not charge


Step 1:
Windows 7 Laptop Battery not charging b> Careful management of battery charging and power consumption settings on your laptop computer is essential if you spend a lot of time away from home or the office. To stop your Microsoft Windows 7 laptop from running out of juice at a critical moment, you can change the battery and power settings for the device. Select the battery meter icon from the desktop toolbar to change the laptop's power plan.
Click the battery meter icon in the notification area on the right-hand side of the computer's desktop taskbar. This launches the battery and power plan options dialog box. Find the battery status display at the top of the dialog box. This shows the remaining charge in the laptop battery, and indicates if the battery is currently plugged into a power supply and charging. Click the check-box beside the power plan option that best matches your current activities. Select "High Performance" if the laptop is connected to an external power supply and the battery is charging. Choose "Balanced" if you don't need to save power and you want Windows 7 to optimize the laptop's power settings. Select "Power Saver" if you need to run the laptop on only battery power for as long as possible. Click anywhere on the desktop screen to exit the battery and power plan options dialog box.

Evrytime I unplug the charger on my lenovo S10-2 ,it automatically turns off. a little help please! :((


Sounds to me like you may have a problem with your laptop battery! It may be time for a replacement. You can find some on ebay that work fairly well; I have bought and used several different laptop batteries from ebay with success! Or, you can always purchase from Lenovo themselves.
  1. eBay: Here is a link to batteries that will work with your laptop.
  2. Lenovo: Black battery is here. White battery is here.
A little information before you decide to fork out some money:
  • Keep in mind the color of your laptop; don't buy a white battery if you have a black laptop and vice versa, unless you want that kind of look, of course.
Hope this helps!

Sir, my laptop CompaqEvo610C can not charging i check my battary on other same model of Compaq it is working and good condition and give backup more then 1hour. when i put the battary in my laptop again...


Since you tried your battery on another pc, then try a different charge power supply on yours. You may have a bad power supply adapter or your battery terminals on your pc may be dirty and need to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.

Why my battery status says 1hr 30 minutes remaining only to say next minute that i have 5hr remaining, than it says 3 hr, only to say i have 4hr 28 minutes remaining?


Hello,


90% of the reason is that ,depending on the working condition the backup of battery varies . What I mean is , if you are running a software which need high resources (example nfs games) then back up reduces and on the other hand if you are running a simple program like ms word ,paint etc maximum backup.

Hope you get the answer.

Total battery power remaining: Unknown


Well you can try a system restore.

1.) start
2.) programs / accessories / system tools
3.) system restore

follow the on screen instructions too restore the computer to a few days before it started having problems.

Chances are that the battery is shot if system restore fails.

My monitor will remain black when notebook is powered up


Black uses much less power. It's a device for automation, so you really should not lavish the watts and attention on it unless it has to perform something truly novel.

If you really want to use the monitor though, you can use the function-key combination used to switch the display between internal and external displays.
