My battery needed to be charged since it had 40% charge left so i shut off the computer. I let it full charge. About an hour and a half later tried turning on the laptop and it would not turn on. I plugged the computer in and it turned on without a problem. It says the computer is running on ac power and it says there's no battery in the computer and the light indicating the battery is charging does not turn on . PLEASE ... help me.. I really need the computer for school any help would be appreciated!

Hey Mike, I can't find a Sears model #1960 charger, so I don't know the specs on it. If it is a typical old school 2 / 6 amp charger or any other that does not automatically shut off or switch to trickle charging, you may be in trouble in a day or two or longer - depending on the charge rate you picked and the percentage of full charge battery was before you connected it.
From what I've experienced, repeated restarting, and frequent shut downs, can be traced back to a defective power cord, and/or a low battery state. Garmins operate best with a full battery charge, regardless their connection to external power.
If you can get it to connect to your computer, and can see it as a device with removable storage, right clicking on it's icon, and select "properties" to show you the battery-charge state detected.
Mine won't charge when connected to the computer for some reason, and won't boot even if left for a few hours, but if I connect it to a dedicated usb charger, (the kind that plugs into an A/C outlet with a USB port) it will begin to charge. After fully charging it returns to normal operational state. If it still can't charge it may need a new battery...
I had the very same problem with a HP Pavillion DV4 laptop and the problem was inside the battery - one of its cells became defective and the charge did not last more than a few seconds - it also showed a 100% charged icon but the battery was depleted in seconds.
Before buying a brand new battery you could check with a friend that has a similar laptop if he/she can lend you his/her battery for a few minutes and check whether the laptop keeps on or not with that other battery. In the case it remains on, it is the battery for sure, and you will need to buy a replacement one. Check the link below, for one option.
This is the procedure for solving consider replacing
your battery problem. Start by running the command prompt with administrator privileges.
This will give the full control over the command prompt. There are those
commands that can only be executed when you are using the command prompt with
administrator privileges. Change the destination path showing on the command
prompt to be set to C:\ then type the command POWER -ENERGY( to change destination path to C:\,
type CD\ ). This command will make the computer scan the battery status and
after 60 seconds, a report will be generated and saved in C:\. Simply open the
energy report and scroll to check the battery information. Look for the design
capacity and the last full charge, note the difference in this figures.
For my laptop, these were the details Battery Information
Battery ID: Hewlett-PackardPrimary
Design Capacity: 88800
Last Full Charge: 36467
To remove the message consider replacing battery fully charge your laptop battery then unplug the charger to use the laptop on
battery power. Use it until the laptop
to automatically shut down. Still with the charger unplugged, power on the
laptop again. Do this until the battery is totally empty. Now plug in your
charger and charge the battery fully. Then perform the commands steps again by
running the POWER -ENERGY command. Make sure you note the differences in the
last full charge details. Continuously perform these steps until the figures in
the last full charge are more than 40% of the design capacity.
you got new a/c adapter or new battery? If you got new a/c adapter then you need to replace the battery... thats what it sounds like:)
Batteries wear out over time and usage. To get the best use out of your battery try to always charge when little power is left:) Thnx
New batteries are shipped partially charged. Before you start using
your device, it is recommended that you charge the battery. Some
batteries perform best after several full charge/discharge cycles. You
can charge the battery in two ways: • Charging the device’s battery by
connecting the power adapter. • Connecting your device to a PC via the
provided Mini USB cable. Note: Only the AC adapter and USB cable
provided with your device should be used to charge the device. Charging
is indicated by a solid amber light on the left LED indicator. As the
battery is being charged while the device’s power is on, a charging
icon will be shown on the title bar of the Today screen. After the
battery has been fully charged, the left LED becomes green and a full
battery icon appears on the Today screen’s title bar. Warning! Do not
remove the battery from the device while you are charging it using the
AC or car adapter. As a safety precaution, the battery stops charging
when it overheats.
When the low-battery warning appears, do the following: • Immediately
save your current data. • Synchronize with your PC or connect the power
adapter to charge the battery. • Turn oﬀ your device. Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. JimmyC
