1. the battery wasn't charged properly the first time that is it didn't get a full 24 hour charge.
2. The battery is defective and is giving an incorrect reading.
3. Usually the batteries are Lithium Ion batteries and have what is called "smart
technology and have electronic logic built into the case which is read by the computer to
give indication of status of the batteries.
4. I suggest that you contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Some Lithium batteries
from that manufacturer are in "recall status".
5. check the manufacturer site for the recall list and if your model PC is on the list request
a replacement battery.

Plug in not charging


There are several factors why this situation happens. It could be improper use of the power adapter or because the battery is not being cared correctly. On the other hand, exercising the performance of battery sometimes by draining it completely before charging it again is a good method of prolonging the battery life. If you noticed that the battery is not charging, always check first the power outlet if it is live or not before doing serious investigation.If the wall socket is not the cause of laptop battery charging failure, the following troubleshooting tips might help you.
1. Check if the AC adapter is bad or not. Detach the battery from the laptop and turn on the computer with the power plug connected. If the laptop does not turn on, try using another power adapter to verify if the first one is defective. If the second trial does not work as well, the problem might be the power circuit of the motherboard. Look for a certified computer technician to help you solve the issue.
2. If the computer does turn on, the power adapter is in good condition and not the cause the problem. In this case, try placing another battery that meets the technical specifications of the laptop for proper testing. If the second battery works well, it can be concluded that the first one is defective.
3. Determine if the problem is not caused by a software related issue. If the notebook battery status is not being displayed correctly though software, it can be considered that the software is causing the problem and not really the battery.
4. Power reset the unit by unplugging it and removing the battery. After doing that, hold the power button down for a minute. Then, attach the battery and power adapter, and start the laptop again. This method is being done to ensure that the motherboard is not holding power anymore when the battery went down causing a "hiccup" in the system. This may solve the charging failure of the battery.
5. If the battery stops charging every time the charge indicator reaches 96-98%, the laptop may need to be recalibrated for a new battery. For proper notebook recalibration, the Windows power management should be configured to prevent the system from going into sleep mode or hibernation when the battery reaches the low level. For Windows XP users, navigate to Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Power Options. Set "Power Schemes" to "Always On". Under "Alarms", uncheck "Low battery alarm" and "Critical battery alarm". Under "Hibernate", uncheck "Enable hibernation", and then click on Apply. Doing this procedure, the laptop battery can now be drained fully until the computer system shuts off. Then, put the adapter back into the power jack and let it charge completely. Sometimes the cycle must be repeated 2-3 times before it actually reaches the 100% full charge. The charging process should last at least around 14 hours.

Unit shows low battery and immediately goes into hibernation, even though it is plugged into A/C


When plugged in does the battery charge, and do any charging lights on the laptop illuminate. If not then either the charger or charger circuits have failed. The former requires a replacementm charger, I suggest e-bay. The latter requires an expensive motherboard replacement. If all lights are as you expect them to be, and the battery charges, then there could be some obscure setting, or software, that causes this but hardware would be my first suspect.

Please take a moment to rate my solution.

Toshiba satellite M55 not turning on


Either the battery is faulty, or the charger is faulty.
Check the fuse in the mains plug, or even the power point you are using could have a bad connection.
Test using a lamp that you know works or a radio or something and try the charger in another outlet to find the fault.

Looking for the New battery


There are really only two things to do. First, look into a replacement battery. A search on Google of "Satellite m105 battery" usually yields one or two sources of after-market batteries for around $50.

The second is only if your battery is a NiMH (nickel metal hydride) battery. In that case, you can create a power profile in the power or toshiba controls control panels where the computer does not go into hibernation or sleep. Go into the bios and make sure that the computer will not shut down on low power, and you may want to turn off the low power alarm. Then, making sure the computer is not plugged into the AC adapter, let it run until it actually shuts down from draining the battery. Then, don't leave it that way, get it back to a full charge. From then on, if you are working with the computer plugged into AC power from a wall socket, take the battery out.

A good source of info, though it's mainly about NiCd batteries, is: http://www.batteryuniversity.com/

Inspiron 1000 keeps going into hibernation when plugged in


Does your laptop really shut down or is it going into hibernation mode. The way you can check is to enter the control panel and click on the power options. You will find power options for both battery and AC operation. Listed there is the time that the computer will run without any input before it goes into hibernation mode. If you wish to increase that time, just enter a different time. Or you can choose the "never hibernate" option.
See if that works for you. I'm assuming that your computer is just sitting there with no activity when this happens. If this is not the case, then we have to do a bit more troubleshooting.

Battery appears charged, but computer will only run when plugged in


does your battery have one of those charge indicator panels on bottom?

also, it's possible that the connection from battery to the internals is shot..if that's the case, then you're looking at a major motherboard swap

Screen on Acer laptop keep going off


First of all are you running on battery or ac ? It sounds like you might have a bad charger and your battery is low, so your laptop goes into screen off to conserve battery, and then hibernates. Let me know if this resolves your problem or not.
