Yes. Than check Compaq's web site & download any updates that have to do with your battery. Wouldn't hurt to check other updates listed on the site. Than update windows....

Have a Great day!

I have bought a new charger for my laptop, compaq presario cq56, and it is still not charging


Other expert is right--if not charger may be a loose socket where it plugs in or even a bad battery is possible.

When i boot up, my Compaq CQ20 displays the message that the battery has low storage capacity. Battery time is now down to 15 to 20 minutes at full charge.


If you laptop is more than two years old then it is possible that the battery is faulty as many of the compaq laptops have poor back up battery orr quality retained.
Check the adapter on the PC , check if the adapter charges the battery to full capcity , now if this charge wont lat more than 20 minutes , you might need a new one.
Discharge the battery fully and charge few times as the last resort.

I bought a replacement battery for my hp pavillion 6775us, and charged it and discharged it then charged to full and the battery check said i needed to replace it. it wasn't an HP original equipment...


Hello,

First of all, disconnect your battery from back of the

laptop, then try and get a friend or a technician that

uses the same type of laptop, and try to swap the

battery just to check whether it works and charges

it properly. Also do the same thing with the

Adapter/Charger and charge it with it.

This is because, there are two diagnostic possibilities

here:

1.) It is either the battery that you bought is not good

and you need to return it quickly before its too late

or;

2.) The charger that you are using is bad, or not

supplying enough current to charge the battery

cells...and this might even damage the battery after

a while, or make the battery not to charge to its full

capacity and as well discharge quickly.

Try this out and let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck and thanks for using fixya.


Kindly Let me know how it goes.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck!

My lab top wont charge the battery its new


Your laptop does not charge the battery, the charger plug charges the battery. Could be a bad charger or battery, just because its new does not mean it works.

Original battery


New batteries usually have to be FULLY charged and discharged several times before they reach their true Amp hour capacity (it depends on how long they have been sitting on the shelf).
Your replacement battery should have the same or greater Amp hour rating than the original battery. This is printed on the labels on the batteries.

Laptop won't turn on, battery won't charge


I had a similar issue with the Armada M700 from Compaq. Never did figure it out exactly. But I do know this. When you unplug the power chord and take out the battery and plug the power chord back in while the battery is out usually for some reason it turned on allowing me to replace the battery which would then begin charging. Your problem interests me because I can really relate!

How to charge up my new battery


Let it charge for a good 12 hours before running the machine, basically overnight. The power management system will recognize that this is a new battery, and is programed to start the initial charge sequence for a new battery. It is supposed to do this whether the machine is in use or not, but I recommend 12 hours just to be on the safe side.

My laptop battery won't charge


possible when the old AC adapter blew it took part of the power management circuit with it, This is the circuit that detects and charges the battery, I'm not sure whether this a seperate replaceable daughter card or whether it is part of the main motherboard. you will need to investigate this (or send it for a service)
