    I have bought 2 new batteries, and it will not detect either one. Both look like new factory replacement battteries. It still detects and charges the original battery, but when I put in one of the new batteries, neither one is detected or charged?

There are several reasons why a laptop battery woiuldn't charge:

1) if your replacement battery isn't oem, on few occassions it is known that your replacement wouldn't be compatible and therefore wouldn't charge.
2) your ac adapter is defective...eventhough it supplies power to your laptop and you could work on it normally.
3) the new battery replacement battery you just bought happens to be defective but you assume since it's brand new it should be working.
4) and i saved the worst for last since it happened to me twice..the charging unit on your laptop mother board is defective and will not charge any battery new or old any longer...this requires you to replace *********** board which is sometime more expensive than buying a brand new laptop. unless you are still under warranty.

one tip that saved me from buying a new laptop is that my dell warranty ended after 1 year but since I bought my laptop on my visa, they double your warranty for free as part of their visa member benefit. make sure you have a copy of the purchase receipt and the warranty ( usually you could download the product warranty from the manufacturer website)

Zeki tablet 10.1 will not charge

not familiar with that tablet but most charging problems are either the cord or battery needs replacing. If light does not come on when on charge then you need a new cord. If light comes on and it won't hold the charge then it's time to replace your battery.

My rca tablet wont charge

Either the power converter (wall Pack) has no output of voltage....Or the battery has run its cycle of life. Symptoms of bad battery are,will take no charge,or not hold a charge for very long, or will not charge fully.I have an IPOD that I charged fully,and then put it away for a long time, when I got it back wouldn't take a charge at all. These kind of issues are common with batterys . Hope this is helpful.

Tabeo tablet battery not charging will work if plugged in

Hi! Hope this may serve as a hint. When power problem dooms to any electronic device needing battery operation we sometimes least assume that the battery life is near to its end. I mean its charging life has come to end. However, you can sometimes recycle it's life cycle by discharging fully and recharging fully without using it. Battery utility softwares can help monitor its life but cannot revive at all. Charging also using fast charger and or slow charger can help reactivate the battery cells. I personally experience, a gadget of mine its charging life is almost come to end and when I accidentally plug it on my laptop with 3.0 USB offline charging capability it somehow raise its life but not as good as it is. If the above doesn't work at all, it's time to change the battery pack. Goodluck!

Why so long when i'm charging my lenovo a1-07 ideapad

Frequent Charging Shortens Battery Life Frequent charging shortens the life span of a Lithium ion battery. Batteries should be charged only after they expend all their power. b> Switching Batteries Switching batteries helps preserve battery life: If a cell phone or computer user puts in a spare battery while separately charging the primary Lithium ion battery, that helps extend the life of both batteries. b> Removing Batteries Most laptops charge the battery when a user plugs in the AC adapter. Users can adjust this setting by changing the power options. Windows places this option in the Control Panel, while the Gnome Linux desktop places power options under "Administrative Tools". Cell phones incorporate their own power-saving features that the user usually cannot control. b> When to Replace a Lithium Ion Battery If a laptop battery does not hold a charge for more than a few minutes, a user must replace the Lithium ion battery if he wants to use the computer without an AC adapter. Other Ways to Extend Battery Life Storing a battery in a cool, dry environment causes a lithium-ion battery to last a little longer and reduces the frequency of needed battery replacements. Hope this helps.

When I go to use wi-fi, it keeps saying wi-fi is disabled. Yet, other laptops in the house work off the wi-fi

Do not expose the <a href="">apple A1280 battery</a> to high heat or freezing temperatures. Do not leave your <a href="">apple A1281 battery</a>in your car in the summer. Hot <a href="">Sony BPS8 battery</a> discharge very quickly, and cold ones can't create as much power. 6. Fully charge new <a href="">Sony BPS9 battery</a> packs before use. New pack needs to be fully charged and discharged (cycled) a few times before it can condition to full capacity. 7. For laptops that work as Desktop Replacement, the <a href="">Toshiba PA3534U-1BAS battery</a> should be re -installed every 3-4 weeks and allowed to fully discharge. 8. Leaving the <a href="">Gateway Nv52 battery</a> in a laptop while using an electrical outlet for long periods of time will keep the battery in a constant state of charging up and that will reduce the life cycle of the battery.

The charging circuit doesn't seem to be working. The charge indicator LED is lit red (and has been for a long time). It sometimes goes out for a few seconds but then comes back on red. It does not seem...

Unfortunately, as far as I know, there is no "Replacement" part for this. It will have to be fixed by the Manufacturer. It isn't a "Part" per-say, but a circuit on the motherboard itself. If it is no longer working, then it is a hardware issue, and since it is a "Laptop" style computer, there is no way to simply fix it.

Battery is not charging

Let the battery go all the way dead. You may have to adjust the settings in your bios so that the laptop will stay on until the battery goes completely dead. Then charge the battery. Do this a few times if it does not fix the problem you do need a new battery.

Acer Travelmate 2200 laptop

Try taking the laptop battery out. You can remove the laptop battery by turning it over, you'll usually see some sliders at the bottom, slide them to the unlock position and you should be able to wedge your battery out. The battery usually comes in a very tall and thin rectangular shape. Once the battery is out, plug the laptop in through the mains power - this may solve your problem, if it does, you'll need a new battery if you wish to use it on the move. If it does not solve your problem, it is either a faulty power adaptor, or a faulty power supply on the motherboard of your laptop. A faulty power adaptor or battery is the best case scenario, as it's the cheapest to buy a replacement (although it's still expensive - $120 worth in the UK roughly). A faulty power supply on the mainboard generally means you'll need a replacement mainboard which is totally uneconomical, especially with the labour cost to fit it professionally. If the battery and power adaptor is not faulty, you might as well scrap it and get a new laptop. Good luck Tina!
