    Same bug: DELL is defective battery=

    When you replace ONE cell in the Dell Laptop battery pack, and

    certify that now all battery cells charge well and quickly, the,

    DELL battery pack, now upgraded,(repaired), with new cell=DOES NOT

    WORK at all in the Dell computer.

    I heard there is a secret to zap few terminal in the battery pack,

    or twicked to, to start the triac conducting, to be active.

    Which terminals are to be energized, to ACTIVATE the

    Dell battery pack?

    Once the pack is activated, it WILL charge in the laptop, not before.

    and, then, you have a "NEW" battery working for you 4 more years.

    (untill next time for another exchange, so save your OLD battery

    pack, as there is some very good cells in it)

    THE Pack contains 8 cells, only one may short, 7 are good.

    When one shorts, it shuts down the entire pack.

    Power drill packs, are the same problem.

Very bad DELL battery pack, now NEW.
Dell pack contais 8 cells, one may short. Save old packs.
Open it and replace the shorted cell, verify all cells are good
and charging. NOW your pack must be ACTIVATED by
zapping the triac to turn it on. Two terminal must be zapped.
Afterwards, charge pack in laptop.
Now you are good for another 4 years.
Save your old Dell battery packs, many cells are like new.
Power drill's have like battery arrangement, one cell may fail.

Try entering the system setup at startup, usually pressing the Delete or F2 key, it may also indicate whick key to press. Once in the setup look for a battery utility. Running the utility, if there is one, will calibrate the battery.

Battery failure. The power cells in your laptop are a set of 6 batteries inside of a long battery pack case. Inside the case, any one of the 6 cells can die or no longer charge. A replacement is the only option.

How to Open a Laptop Battery & Replace the Lithium Ion

Laptop batteries, like all rechargeable battery packs, lose their charging capacity over time. Because new Laptop batteries are expensive, replacing the individual cells inside the battery casing can save a lot of money. However, rebuilding a battery sometimes does not work as expected, so it’s important to be willing to purchase a new laptop battery if the procedure fails.
HP Pavilion DV1100 Battery 12 cells
1、Allow the laptop battery to run down completely. Turn off your laptop, then remove the battery. Write down the model number located on your battery to help identify the type of Li-ion replacement cells you need to purchase.
2、Split open a small section of the laptop battery pack (at the seam) with a screwdriver or craft knife. Continue to pry the plastic case loose moving around the outer edge until the entire top is free. This may take a bit of force.
3、Note the number of cells inside the case (usually four to eight). Write down the part number and voltage information printed on the cell casings. Draw a diagram showing the arrangement of the cells and how they are connected, or take a few photos to help with reassembly.
4、Purchase the correct number and type replacement batteries from online shop such as, based on your battery model and cell specifications. Six Li-ion cells typically cost around $30 to $40.
5、Carefully remove each cell using a craft knife and wire cutters as necessary. Each battery pack is different, but the cells are usually wrapped in a plastic casing with metal contacts attached to one end. Lay the metal contacts, wires and casing material aside.
6、Use double-sided tape or a solder gun (only if necessary) to attach the metal contacts to the cells and circuit board. When finished, the old cells should be completely stripped (naked) and the new cells should look like the old ones as much as possible.
7、Place the new cells inside the case, referring to your diagram or photos if necessary. Glue the battery(Compaq DV6000 Battery) pack top back on. Charge the new battery for at least 24 hours before using it.
Tips & Warnings
Keep an eye on the new battery while it charges for the first time. If the contacts are not connected properly, the battery could overheat and cause damage to the laptop.

Why is New Samsung computer battery not detected?

Step 1:
Computer Won't Recognize a Battery While desktop computers are plugged directly into an electrical outlet to obtain power, laptops rely on a battery and power cord in order to be charged. If your laptop suddenly stops recognizing this battery pack, however, it could jeopardize your ability to charge your computer and ultimately work on it at all.

Inspect the Battery With the battery unplugged, carefully examine your laptop's battery, both the battery unit itself and any cords or plugs attached to it. Make sure the battery's case is not cracked or damaged. Look for fraying cords and bent prongs on the plug. Any of these issues could cause internal damage to the battery itself, the cable or the plug, which could interrupt the flow of electricity between the battery or electrical outlet and your laptop. If your laptop is still under warranty, you may be able to get a free replacement for a damaged battery or cable. b> Check The Port b> Damage to the port on the back of your laptop the one into which you insert the power cord could cause your laptop not to recognize your battery or any cables attached to it. Turn off your laptop and turn it around so you have a clear view of this port. Using a flashlight to illuminate the port, inspect it for any dirt or debris that may have become jammed inside; gently remove any debris with a small cotton swab. A bent prong could also interrupt the circuit, making it difficult for the battery to transfer energy from the power cord to the laptop; straighten a bent prong using needle nose pliers. Avoid making invasive repairs, especially if your product is under warranty; any damage you do to the laptop in an effort to fix it could nullify the terms of your warranty. b> Wrong Kind Of Battery b> Some brands of laptops, such as Dell, will not recognize a battery that wasn't manufactured by the same company. To make sure that your battery is compatible with your laptop, consult your laptop's user guide for battery specifications (these will vary based on make and model of your laptop). b> Dead Battery b> Laptop batteries have a limited lifespan. After so many charges, they may be unable to transfer enough power from your electrical outlet to your laptop. When your battery reaches this point, a replacement may be your best option. b> Laptop Update b> Updating the "BIOS" on your laptop can help the unit better detect and recognize external hardware such as a battery. BIOS which stands for Basic Input/Output System assists in booting up your laptop, and helps run every function until you turn it off. Computer manufacturers release BIOS updates for their products routinely; these updates can be downloaded from the company's website as ".exe" files. Run and save this update on your laptop, then restart it to see if your laptop now recognizes the battery. Mac users can reset the laptop's System Management Controller (SMC). Apple reports that sometimes, otherwise unexplained errors pop up in the laptop's system, including problems with the battery's ability to charge. To reset the SMC, turn off the laptop and remove the battery. Hold down the "Power" button for five seconds and release before plugging the battery back in and turning the laptop on.

I have a laptop acer aspire 6935g that its battery charges for a while and then stops & after it says 100%charged charger is logged off then it remains about two minute and shut down , help please&...

Hi , Laptop batteries deteriorate with the passage of time and upon every charge and discharge cycle, the battery looses some of its charge holding capacity and thus the backup time reduces. Eventually, the battery comes to a point where it can not hold charge any more and requires to be replaced. So, it is recommended that you replace the battery with a NEW and GENUINE one, which would give you good back up time. Also, don't discharge the battery completely as it damages it the most and whenever the AC power is available keep the AC adapter connected to your laptop. In this way the battery lasts longer and serves you when AC power not available.
First, make sure that the battery you have is the original not any replacement. Replacements usually don't last much due to the quality of the individual cells inside the battery pack. You can google a bit to find out the details such as photo, number of cells, Amps etc, which would help you assess the quality and specifications of the battery. Furthermore, as I stated earlier, battery suffers damage when discharged completely and on every charge-discharge cycle. Therefore, it certainly depends upon the make, number of cells and how many times the battery was charged/ discharged. Thus, needs replacement
Hope it helps! Good Luck!
Thanks for using Fixya!

The battery does not get any charge, it looks as it is.


This is an indication that the battery pack has shorted out and is not functioning. The batteries in laptops have a thermal fuse inside that blows if the pack gets to hot to prevent exploding. When the battery cells die sometimes they will short out and pull to much current, this causes them to quickly overheat. The fuse blows and the battery cools down but is dead because of the shorted battery cell. The laptop can see a battery but can't charge it because of the blown cell and fuse. Its time to replace it.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Hi there, im having a problem with my compaq laptop, its not turning on. the power pack (extention cord) is functional as it works in a friends laptop but it isnt working in mine can you suggest something?

If the power adapter is not charging your laptop but it chargers a friends, then that means the DC input jack inside your laptop has either broken off, gotten pushed in, or has otherwise been disconnected. Unfortunately you will need to have the machine serviced. Your best bet would be to call Compaq support.
