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.

When the green light flashes quickly while charging what problem can I consider looking into? Would it be that I need a new battery or a battery charger?


Hi Carmen- I am experiencing the same issue with my 2 DIgilux 1 camera, after a long time of not using them. In fact, One of them had a broken lens motor for the longest time and that seems to have fixed itself. I have 2 new batteries on order to see if thtat resolves.

THIS IS THE SOLUTION AND IT WILL TAKE 90 SECONDS TO FIX

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.
Uninstalling and reinstalling power management software in Windows Vista
In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.

1. Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .

2. Expand the Batteries category.

3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .
WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.

4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes .
Alternately, select Action > Scan for hardware changes .
Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.

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

DS will not turn on.


How can you tell if it's fully charged if it wont turn on? If your answer is that the light wont come on try to charge it, you're a few IQ points below average.

It's likely that the screen is either dead, or the battery is dead. Not just drained, the batteries inside the DS can die after awhile. There are plenty of sites that sell replacement batteries, use google to find them

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

HTC S710 - Battery issue


Hi,
it could be either battery or charger, If the charger isn't supplying enough power it will fool the phone..
some 3rd party batteries and cheapo chargers can cause all sorts of problems like this.
best way to test is charge your phone by usb, it takes longer but will give you some idea of weather its the battery or charger.
Make sure that the box at the bottom of the power management window (dont charge by usb) is set to off. Also for best results remove any other usb devices from the computer this will leave more power for the phone.

Best of luck
