Why is my laptop unable to run off battery power, even though battery shows fully charged and AC is unplugged


It's time for you to replace your battery.

how old is your laptop? and how do u use it - do u leave it plugged into the wall socket all the time? It's common for batteries to die out after a couple of years. however, if the computer overheats or if you leave it plugged in all the time, it's life cycle will decrease. Charge - discharge cycles. That's how you are suposed to do it.

I love my Bose Soundlink Mini 2. But, I faced a few issues sometimes.

Speaker not turning ONSpeaker not charging with the battery LED blinking.Speaker not getting connected to the bluetooth devices.
But all were fixed by reading through the Manual a bit. To help others, I actually made a video, to show some troubleshooting tips for the Bose Soundlink Mini 2. Checkout the video, if your speaker is not turning ON / not charging / bluetooth not getting connected:

This seems like a very common issue for the soundlink mini 2. This is due to a firmware bug. Gets foxed with a hard reset.Check the video for details and other trouble shooting tips.

Will a laptop battery become damaged if you use the computer while it is plugged in? I do a lot of photo editing, and leave the computer plugged in for long periods of time, so that it doesn't di


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.
Laptop batteries vary from laptop to laptop. i suggest you Google the Internet for a battery for your model laptop.

No matter how long I leave my computer plugged in, the battery won't charge more than 80%.


OK, I had the same problem as you have, except the battery wouldn't charge beyond 0%.

Sounds like you need to buy a new battery for the netbook.

Have you recharged the battery many times since you owned it? Did you leave it alone for an extended time and it completely discharged and died? Rechargeable batteries sometimes only last 3 years.

Is it ok to leave the laptop plugged in all the


Excess of anything is bad. Drainage works the best for the functioning of all batteries - even Humans :)

If it is a work laptop then you probably shouldn't care because first, you need the laptop working and fully charged always and second, the employer pays for the battery replacement anyways.

If it is a home computer, please try to fully charge it and then unplug, use and then charge again. This will ensure optimum battery performance and increase it's life.

Battery won't charge on my ryobi 14.4v cordless drill yellow and green lights stay on


I had the same problem and found a solution on another forum...
Plug the battery into the charger. The yellow and green lights come on. Leave the battery plugged into the charger. Plug and unplug the charger power cord from it's power source a few times until the the red charger light comes on..... problem solved!

I think the "smart" circuit in the charger that is supposed to trickle charge before the regular charge cycle needs at least some battery power to test and start the cycle. If the battery is totally discharged, the test can't deternine the battery status and will not charge.... Plugging and unplugging the charger seems to bypass this teat and charge the battery normally. The charging process should work normally after this method.

Charging Black and Decker Simple Start


okay people... this is a long one, but I just did it for two units that were having this problem and it worked both times.
The problem is the unit sat on the shelf and doesn't have enough power to operate its charging cycle.
Take an extension cord and plug in the outlet charger while you also plug it into your cigarette lighter... now attempt to charge it (you will hear the familiar alarm). Now, turn on the LED light... after a short time, turn off the light and the unit will begin to charge regularly. You can then use one of the chargers to finish the job.
By doing this you are providing plenty of power to the battery while the light drains it at a slower rate... kinda forcing the battery to condition/cycle; it's just allowing the battery to take the charge. Hope this helps.

I don't know how to charge my battery


Its ok. Um just leave the battery plugged into your laptop and the power cord plugged into the laptop as well and the laptop will charge it for you. If it won't, the battery is no good and get a new one but you don't need a external battery charger to charge your laptop battery.
