If the system is in warranty, contact Dell and get a replacement Battery. If system is over a year old you most likely need to buy a new battery. If replacing the battery doesn't resolve, then it will most likely require a motherboard replacement.

Battery won't charge


Sounds like a dud battery, or possibly a poor connection. As it is new, get back to your supplier to fix it.

Lenovo battery 0% available( plugged in, not charging)


Your battery is probably dead, the only way to fix it is by taking it to a battery repacker (it will cost you more)

or you can simply buy a new one

My laptop says its plugged in but not charging, what is the problem?


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.

Hi there. Your problem seems to be the battery. Usually when the battery is at the end of its life the indicator stays at 0%. If you are still unsure you can go to download.com and get free battery testing software. Good luck...

My Gateway MD2419U laptop will not charge after it reaches 87%. It says "0% remaining" when unplugged and "0% available (plugged in, not charging)" when plugged in. Why does this...


Its an issue with the BIOS code.
Updating the BIOS will fix the issue.
Update it to Version 9A30a for Windows 7 and Version 9A10h for Windows Vista.
You can find the BIOS update on the Gateway website.

If the Acer is brand new then it is under warranty. Take it back to where you bought the Acer and get it fixed under warranty. if you attempt to fix it yourself you will most likely void your warranty.
