BreeMacAdams, i guess it may due to the memery effect of a battery. you should fully discharge a new battery when you first buy it from a store.if you don't do this,and charge it 100% full directly, it may remember the original capacity as the full condition, that means no matter how you charge your battery, it won't has the really capacity as the standard.if it is true ,you should discharge the battery 100% empty and over charge it for 4-5 hours, and the memery effect will disappear.

You could try the battery in another laptop of same age to see if it is the battery itself, or check the laptop and see that the battery is getting any of its power to the motherboard.

    for that you'd have to see the power status icon in the status bar at the bottom, or use a power meter.

Packard bell easynote M5284 - black screen after installing new RAM

Sounds like the memory is incompatible with the laptop. Remove the memory and install orginal memory and boot again to see if every works correctly.. If so then either a memory module is bad or motherboard wont support the new memory (size or type)

My Acer Aspire 5810tzg won't start, I've check the power cable and battery and they work fine on other machines, it just won't turn on

There is one thing you can attempt before seeking repairs. You should try a power reset.

1) Unplug the AC adapter
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for 30 seconds and then release it
4) Insert battery
5) Plug in AC adapter and see if the laptop can power on

If it does not power on, you may need to seek support with Acer.

Hi.. my acer battery shows charging upto 72%, as shown on the screen when I take the pointer over it... beyond that it won't charge

It looks like your battery has bought the farm.

Batteries have a finite life, shortened if you've use your laptop while mainly plugged into the mains.
If the batteries are not charged and discharged on a regular basis, their life becomes much shortened.

Certainly if you laptop is over 2 - 3 years old, you're looking for a new battery.

My battery is not will i know if this is damaged??

On a laptop? Does it work with the adapter plugged in to laptop but when it's unplugged the laptop won't work? Battery won't hold a charge any longer. If it's plugged in all the time and never allowed to discharge correctly before being charged again the battery will go bad. If it's an old laptop the battery may just be worn out. My buddy wrecked his battery by never unplugging it for like a year, called HP and they sent him a replacement. Told him to start charging/discharging correctly to preserve the capacity and the life of his battery. Hope this helps.
