Battery not found in power management screen charge light goes out

This issue has been posted on here before but no answer thtat fixed this issue was ever posted. AC adaptor, bios update and new battery all do not fix this problem

I replaced the battery but my charge light will go out after a few seconds.

If I remove and reinsert the battery the charge light will come on but then just go out again.

The battery meter doesn't see the battery but if I unplug the AC power the laptop stays running so it is being power by the battery.

I cleaned the contacts on the battery and laptop but it didn't help.
Comment by xlh1460, posted on Jan 20, 2008 I thought that might be it so I updated the BIOS. 9.30 was the newest I could find (I created a bootable CD) but that didn't help.

Power management software in Windows Vista

Understanding battery charging issues
If the notebook battery is not charging or the notebook does not indicate that the battery is charging, the most likely scenario is that the battery itself is operating correctly, but its power management software may have become corrupt. In order to correct the problem, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software by using the Device Manager. This document will explain how to uninstall and reinstall the ACPI Battery listings in Windows Vista, as well as how to obtain and install updated BIOS files, if needed to correct other battery issues.

Acer Laptop Black Screen


Just to be clear this is not a fix for screen problems, this is a fix for a problem that prevents the laptop from booting at all. The laptop would not even attempt a POST and so would not even get as far as trying to output anything to the display.

I'm no expert but just wanted to share a fix that worked for me. For me it was a problem with the laptop not coming out of hibernation properly and completely freezing, the only option was to power off. On reboot nothing would happen, the screen would not even be initialised so it is nothing to do with the screen.

I can only theorise what the problem may be. As the solution is to remove the power lead, remove the battery and hold down the power button it would seem to be an issue with the laptop retaining some residual charge which is preventing the laptop from booting. I've heard of other poeple who have managed to fix this by simply letting the battery run out and then leave it overnight, this will again dissipate any residual charge but is just a much slower way of doing it. Holding the power button down with no power sources attached will dissipate this charge and allow the laptop to boot when a power source is reattached.

Unfortunately if the laptop boots and the screen is blank then it is a different issue, if the image on the screen is faint it is most likely a problem with the backlight and in these instances this fix will not work. Before posting this I thought this was an isolated incident but there have been so many replies it would appear to be a more common issue than I thought and works on many different models, not just the DV6599 that I've tried it on

Strange ac cord/power issues


Hello my friend, Try to check your battery if the is it working normal cause sometimes the battery itself has the problem its either lost contact or the battery is not charging or not normal. also try to see if the the the sensor or that links the battery to the software which is responsible to the update of charging energy is functioning normal but this is a rare possibility try to focus on the battery or the connector or power cord.
Hope this will able to help solve you problem. If you need more assistance just reply to this post. Thank you

You have not clarified that its a new one or a second hand one. In any case If it has a problem, Please inform ebay about the problem and they'll make the seller pay for cheating you in selling you a defective piece.
Now your problem part .Its true that it can only be established in a repair shop that which one is the culprit the battery or the charging board.But there is one more thing ,i.e. the charger. Borrow from some of your friend just to check if it is charging.Exchange both Laptop and chargers. Then at least you can establish the charger is defective or not. You can also check the charger using a multimeter.
I have got something on net regarding this
Try removing the battery and reinserting it. Make sue it is properly inserted.

If computer is working OK while plugged in, then battery may be faulty. If computer is having problems then maybe power adapter is glitchy.

Clarification added 4 days ago: Another tip I found:
1) Turn off the laptop
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for ~1minute
Then everything should work fine.
Clarification added 4 days ago: A similar tip:
(1) Turn on computer w/ AC plugged in like always.
(2) Remove battery (keeping AC adapter plugged in).
(3) Shutdown computer.
(4) Replace battery.
(5) Wait a few minutes, and the lightning bolt icon which has usually been only flashing is now a steady blue while it charges the laptop, then turns off when the battery’s at 100%.


Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.
