Question about EliteGroup G320 Notebook

1 Answer

Hi' I have a G320 laptop, which will not charge the battery. It does not register charge on the indicator light, or through a check on power options. I purchased a new battery, believing that my battery had failed, but this did not solve the problem. The computer operates normally on mains power, but is useless away from a power source. Can you solve this problem, Thank you . Malcolm.

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
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.

My toshiba satilite L305D-S5940 Wont charge has new battery new power cord It comes on acts like its going to work then shuts off and sometimes wont come on What could it be please


Hi there,
1st : you can check from the power cable charge
2nd : check the adaptor charger if there is a light indicator or not, or you can check with multimeter to check the voltage on charger adaptor, does show the proper voltage for your laptop, you can check at the end of the connection that leads to the laptop.
note : Remember use DC current at Multimeter
3rd : if the adaptor running well, just plug on the adaptor charger to the laptop, dont turn on the laptop power, just see the light indicator with battery / lightning image on laptop, its explained that there is or is not the power current running to the laptop.
3rd.A : if its no power goes to the laptop then your adaptor charger is failed
3rd.B : if is there, there must be a problem with your motherboard, section power / power plugs, why do not want to charge with a new battery.
Conclusion :
- if the problem on number 1 & 2, then you can change the power cord and the adaptor charger.
- if there is problem on the 3rd.B then you can go to the toshiba services center for your problem.

thats all, hope its help.

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

Laptop not starting, no lights except small blinking orange light in cd drive drawer


It sounds like the power socket on the laptop is faulty and needs replacing or resoldering. To check this, power up the latop with the power adapter, wriggle the plug in the power socket and check if the battery charge indicator flicks on and off indicating charging and not charging. If it indicator flicks on and off then you have a faulty power socket.

This can be repaired but required the laptop to be completely dismantled to access the power connector.

How do you know when the battery needs charged or is charging


there are a couple of ways to check, if your battery has a test light indicator you can press it will tell you about how much power is by how many lights light up, if it doesn't have one, you may have to trust the windows power indicator. if you go to control panel you can go to your power options and one of the tabs should have a power reading. Also some bios versions have a battery section which tells you how much battery life there is. until they make a charger that automatically shuts off when the battery is charged this is the only way to tell

Though your observations are explained well, I just want to clarify once again.
If you leave the adaptor plugged on for charging does the battery get charged up to display or show on display in the power options when switched on that the battery is fully charged.
Now if the adapter is removed does the laptop last much on the battery or does it drain off easily? If so the battery is bad and must be replaced.
Also if you are able to check the voltage on the battery terminals of the laptop and it shows a good reading then the battery is a suspect.
please check the link below for some tips on the power adaptor.:

Battery light dosent work during charging or fully charged. Light comes up at times. battery level is either not indicated properly


In most models the battery light is displayed when it is charging with a possible blinking when it nears charging and it cuts off when the charge is full.
So if your laptop shows that the battery is charging in the task bar- bottom right, then you can ignore the issue unless your laptop is in warranty and it can be done free of cost.
If you open power options in the control panel the charging will be displayed , if this show Ok then the fault is the hardware circuit issue on the mother board power section.

I have had this issue with a few HP laptops.
Does the lighning bolt light up on the laptop to indicate charging?
Maybe try unplugging the power adapter and battery, press and hold the Power button for 30 seconds, pug in the battery and power adapter. In Windows click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Power Options. Click on Power Meter Tab and check the startus of the battery (i.e. Charging, not present etc)
