Hi,

Most if not all laptop manufacturer also sell batteries for the model they carry/sell. You need to go the the website of your laptop manufacturer and look for an appropriate battery to your specific laptop model.

Alternately, there are available aftermarket/generic/replacement batteries that will also fit your laptop. You can try here, here or here. Additionally, there are some versions that has a higher capacity which translates to longer usage time.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My battery won't charge even if I replaced it with new battery.


If your battery will not charge, you need to run a test on some components on the laptop. The battery, the charger and the laptop itself. Once you detect the faulty conponent then you replace it with a new one.

To test the battery:
1.Power off the laptop,
2.Take out the battery,
3.Insert it in another laptop,
4.Check of it will charge,

If the battery holds a charge there, then it means the problem is not from the battery, but if it does not hold a charge, then it means the battery is defective and need to be replaced with a new one.

To test the charger:
1.Unplug the charger from the present laptop,
2.Connect it to another laptop to see if it will charge.

If it charges the laptop, then it means the charger is alright, and if it does not charge the laptop, then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.

To test the laptop:
1.Turn off the laptop,
2.Disconnect your present charger,
3.Remove your present battery pack,
4.Insert a well tested battery into the laptop,
5.Connect a well tested charger to the laptop.

If it powers on, then it and charges, then it means the laptop is working fine, but if it does not charge, then it means the connection port of the laptop is bad.Hope this information was helpful.

I bought a brand new 170.00 battery for my Dell studio 1737 laptop. It continues to say plugged in, not charging. What can i do? I've tried plugging in and replugging in the charger.


For a new battery, we advise that you update the BIOS of your laptop, and open the hardware automatic identification port of your laptop.

When you use it firstly, you need to discharge till 5%, then charge it about 11 hours. Usually, new battery need to fully discharge and charge for three or four times, which can achieve the best performance.

About the new battery, please set the power management of your laptop: Property -> Screen Saver -> power -> Power scheme -> Portable / Laptop -> please cancel about low battery alarm and serious shortage of battery alarm when use the battery.
For some laptops, you could try to close your power management tool to test your new battery.

You could try to take out the battery from your laptop, and put it back again, repeat several times. Make sure that it isn't a poor contact problem between the battery and your laptop.

If the battery works in higher temperature, the battery protection plate will work and the laptop restart program will make a termination order. You can take out the battery, put it back again, and avoid work in high temperature.

In order to avoid some damage to the battery, please note:
Please don't take out the battery when the laptop is in run status.
Please don't pull out the ac adapter frequently when the battery is charging.
Please use high quality and reliable laptop charger, not to use the universal laptop charger.

Are there something wrong with the new battery can not charging?
That's not usually the case. When equipment for the first time to recharge the battery, the instability of the voltage and current may cause the battery charge to 50% (sometimes more, sometimes less), and equipment stop charging the battery.
If this happens,don't worry. You just remove the battey from the equipment, recharge again. First charging a new battery may need several repeated process. Please be assured that this is normal.

Will not charge a new battery.


You have the isolate the cause of problem. If the unit is still under warranty, it is best to have it check by your supplier or service provider. If that is not possible, try the following, note that you will need a similar model laptop to do this.
1. Install the new battery in another laptop and see if this charges. If the battery charges, then possibly the problem is with your laptop, if not then possibly the new battery is defective and in this case you should claim it for warranty replacement.
2. Try to connect another battery in your laptop and see if it will charge, if the battery was charged then the new battery is defective, if not then there is problem with your laptop. Try swapping the power adapter if this will work. If still not, then you need to have your laptop check by a computer technician.

Computer does not recoginze the ac power supply and will not charge the battery


Dell laptops are notorious for wanting the exact model of charger they are designed for. Simply, they will not run on a non-genuine Dell chargers as far as charging is concerned.

IF you are already using a genuine Dell charger, for that models amperage and voltage, there is an issue with the charging circuit on the motherboard

Acer travelmate 5620 Have new replacement battery It does not recognise it


If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Laptop wont power up with Battery Installed


When you don't have the laptop battery plugged in, the power routes directly to the mainboard of the laptop. When the battery IS plugged in, it reroutes to the battery, then the battery powers the mainboard and charges at the same time.

It's likely that the route between either the power board and the battery or the battery and the mainboard is broken somehow. To fix it, you would need it professional stripped down and some soldering may be required and perhaps new parts such as capacitors.

To get someone else to do this would prove quite expensive. Might be worth checking up on your laptop warranty or considering the worth of your current laptop against the cost of a new laptop.
