It wont come on with power button


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, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods

Tip

Make your Lithium Laptop Battery last longer.


Hello folks,

Although I usually offer advice on backing up files or recovering them, I have been asked a lot lately how my 3 year old laptop still runs 1:45mins on a standard battery when many peoples 1-2 year old laptops can barely last an hour.

Simply put, most people do one of two things wrong. Both are common misconceptions and easy to remedy. First I've heard countless people tell me they pop the battery out of their laptop and toss it in the desk drawer until needed, often months. Second I have been told by more people than I can count that they leave their laptop plugged in 24/7 for most of the year.

Bottom line, although popping it out and leaving it in the drawer is less harmful to it's lifespan, both ideas are wrong.

The shelf life of most unused lithium batteries is shorter when unused than ones being used properly. The lifespan of a battery that is constantly being trickle charged is even shorter.

Most batteries in modern laptops are 4-6 cells, designed to give about 2 hours of charge and should last 3-5 years with charge life starting to degrade in the third year.

A "stored battery" has only 3 years of shelf life due to extended times sitting discharged and one that is trickle charged 24/7 may burn out in as little as a year.

Many laptop manufacturers have taken measures to improve this but ultimately the best thing for your battery is to use it. If you currently run you laptop plugged in 24/7, unplug it every night after you shut it off, then when you start it in the morning, let it run an hour before plugging it back in. This will give the battery both down time and exercise.

If your battery is in a drawer somewhere for safe keeping, put it back in the laptop, run it down then charge it over night and run it down then recharge it one more time. Store it back in the drawer charged and repeat the cycle at least once a month.

These tips will help drastically improve you batteries performance over time. My 3 year old laptop only ever got 2 hours of battery life and still gets 1:45 with no power saving measures, give it a try.

Only 2 months old Samsung RV511 97% available (plugged in, not charging) uninstalled Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery then reinstalled but wont charge? Only 2 months old


ACPI control really has nothing to do with the underlying hardware. If the laptop is not charging or if it's not running off the battery, then you should take it in for warranty service - or have the manufacturer send you a replacement battery first, and see if that resolves the problem.

My Acer Laptop is about 3 yrs old and since the last month the battery has been running down within half an hour while in the past it used to last at least for three hours.

My computer does not charge when on charge display the word "plugin in not charging"


Er this is the dell old problem.
Follow the below steps to fix it.
The Battery didn’t charge or detect being plugged in also caused by four reasons:
  • 1. The Vostro 1510 laptop battery failed
  • 2. The Adapter failed (can not charge the battery)
  • 3. The motherboard charging electric circuit failed (many caused by short damage). You can view more info here: Dell motherboard problem
  • 4. The laptop bios is too old to recognize the battery

Laptop won't charge anymore, it only works with


If the laptop is only a month old, then I would take it to place of purchase and have them exchange the battery.

If the system shuts down when the power is off, then apparently the battery is not being charged. Now it may be the plug, but the battery is easier to test out.

Good luck

Acer Aspire 5580 poor battery


Its time for a new battery. After a period of time of using a battery, the amount of charge it can hold depletes. Even if you always have it plugged in. Usually, batteries only last 18-24 months which is sad, seeing how much they cost. I'm a computer tech and see this problem everyday first hand. The best thing you can do is buy a battery from eBay and save yourself a bunch of money. Local retail stores charge up to 3 times as much for a battery. Good luck and I hope this helps..... :>)

Laptop battery


It does charge until the battery reaches full charge, then charger stops and laptop use adapter's power. The whole system is thought to not damage or wear the battery while in charge. Leave battery safely inside your Dell while using it with power adaptor, it should not make any difference in your battery life.
