Battery not recharging

Hi..

Having trouble with my battery. The computer will not recharge it.

When plugged into power the battery recharging icon 'moves up and down' 2 or 3 times as if charging, then stops. If I hold the cursor over the icon it says (Plugged in: Not charging)

When using the computer on battery power the battery icon indicates that it is full...but will only power the computer for 7 minutes.

Has been working and recharging just fine until recently.

All batteries die sooner or later. I believe you have a dead cell.

1) Find another machine that uses the same battery and try it or
2) try another battery or
3) Give up and buy a new battery.

Good luck.

How long do I leave the recharging cart on for to recharge my computers?


You have to unplug it if you want to make sure that it will serve you well. Plugging it forever will cause it to become defective.

Battery has been charging to 100%. Suddenly would only charge to 76 percent. Now, after two weeks, will max at 62 percent. Computer is 1 year old. Can battery meter be recalibrated?


Pulled from Gateway's website:
Do not interrupt the battery recalibration process. If recalibration is interrupted, you must start the process over again.

  1. Close all open files and programs.
  2. Connect your notebook to AC power and allow the battery to completely charge.
  3. Disconnect the AC power and restart your notebook.Note: If the power cord plug.gif or battery baticon.gif icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons showhidden.gif button. If the icon still does not appear, verify thatAlways show icon on the taskbar is checked on the Power Options Properties Advanced tab.

  4. Completely discharge the battery by doing the following:

    1. From the desktop, right-click on the power icon, then select Adjust Power Properties.
    2. Click the Power Schemes tab.
    3. Click the arrow button to open the Power Schemes list, then click Always On.
    4. Click the Alarms tab.
    5. Click to remove the check mark from the Low battery alarm and Critical battery alarm checkboxes. Let the battery drain until your notebook automatically turns off.

  5. After the battery is completely drained, reconnect your notebook to AC power.
  6. Charge the battery completely until the yellow battery status indicator goes out.
  7. When you are ready to use your notebook again, do the following:

    1. From the desktop, right-click on the power icon, then select Adjust Power Properties.
    2. Click the Power Schemes tab.
    3. Click the arrow button to open the Power Schemes list, then click Always On.
    4. Click the Alarms tab.
    5. Click to select the Low battery alarm and Critical battery alarm check boxes.

Hi

Can you please try to leave laptop switched off
plug in laptop and leave until the light on front goes green or at least 2/3 hrs

then unplug power cord
switch on laptop and use it or leave it until it looses all power and switches off

then recharge until green

when battery is fully charged always un plug and use on battery power
until it reaches about 10% before recharging

some people even remove their battery to preserve it if they always use power cord

if this does not sort the problem please come back to us

many thanks

Is your AC adapter working correctly?

If it is, then removing the battery should allow the computer to use the AC line to power the computer.

If it is not, then your battery is drained, and needs to be recharged.

The power adapter MUST BE a Dell brand power adapter.
If it is, then the socket that was replaced is not the right part.
Of course, the laptop can work just fine with the power adapter, it justwon't charge the battery.

Toshiba Satellite A35 S159 AC PROBLEM Can a laptop run just on the ac without the battery? I just watched a video on youtube and the guy said if you want to save your battery you can take it out and run on...


Yet you need to set up what is called a hardware profile so that you can use the Laptop on either AC power only or on AC Power and Battery. Although it is normally used for docking it can still be used for the battery.

One profile for the office where the laptop is docked and the network adapter enabled, and a second profile can be created for use when you are working away from the office that disables the network adapter but enables the modem.

To set up hardware profiles in XP, complete the following steps:

  1. On the desktop, right click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
  2. From the Hardware tab, click the Hardware Profile button.
  3. Under the list of available hardware profile, select Docked Profile or Undocked Profile and click Copy.
  4. Type in a new name for the profile and Click OK.
  5. Select the new profile and click Properties. Select the check box beside This is a portable computer. Select the docking state for the profile. Click the option to Always include this profile when Windows starts. Click OK.
  6. You can now use Device Manager to enable and disable devices for a hardware profile.

Some people do say that if you totally discharge a rechargeable battery and then fully recharge it you will get a greater AmpHour from it but this will be negligible as all batteries have a standard number of Amps that it will deliver built into it, it may fall with age. Although rechargeable batteries don't just fail like normal dry cells they tend to fail over a period of time and fool us a bit.
