Question about ASI CL51-15 Notebook

2 Answers

Need batteries for my nspire laptop??

Hi I have an nspire laptop model cl51-15. Had it for maybe 5 years or so, and it gets pretty heavy use. I have 2 batteries for it, in case one runs down when I'm on a plane. For the past couple of months, it has been getting kind of hotter than ever before, it starts beeping at me when it heats up if I have the power connected to it. I figure the batteries are really getting old because they don't hold a charge long.

My problem: I can't find anywhere online that even hints that the sell batteries for the thing. Any ideas?

Thanks Steve

It is apparently a Compal laptop (the parent company)
Turns out ASI sells them as a "white-box" re-badged as Nspire but they kept the same model #cl-51
If you have another Nspire laptop you may find your solution looking for a direct replacement changing make from nspire to compal and using the same model# as they are much more popular resellers of parts and driver websites will carry what you need.

Aways, will get you fixed up at a good price, under 70 bux! Lithiums are generally expensive. Let me know if this helped by a rating! Thanks guys!

    How do I determine the battery pinouts for my Dell Inspiron 1526

    the pin outs for the batteries in general are:
    1 +Batt - Battery output voltage
    2 SMB_SDA - System management Bus Serial data
    3 SMB_SCL- system managemant bus Serial Clock
    4 Batt_temp - Battery temperature monitor
    5 battery_present or Battery ID
    6 GND - ground

    the SMB_SDA & SMB_SCL are used by IO controller chip in mainboard to communicate with the battery( battery type , charge level), and you can not use other model laptop batteries because it will not match with the bios whitelisted battery type.
    no way you can fake the battery, instead you can flash the bios by modifying the flashing programs config.ini file so that it ignores the battery

    My compaq presario cq60 will not charge I plug it in and no lights. At boot up here lately it says battery needs to be replaced I have had this computer for less than 2 years

    Good day, please double check your adapter. Maybe your adapter is defective. If not you need to go to the nearest service center. Maybe your laptop has an internal problem w/ the power. tnx

    Need 2 add more mem

    Hi BBrown,

    There is an excellent step-by-step guide here

    However, you NEED to find out what exact model of Gateway laptop you have to make sure that the RAM modules that you buy will work with your laptop since there are physical limitations to make sure you don't install the incorrect types.

    For example, there's SDRAM (associated with Pentium III laptops from 10 years ago) and three generations of Dual Data-Rate memory (DDR for short).

    DDR3 would be used in current laptops (maybe up to 2 years old), DDR2 (2-6 years old) and of course, Pentium4 era DDR as well,

    Hope the helps

    I have hp pavilion dv6000 laptop, problem is that only 10 minutes is working batary after that again i have to connect power

    Hi, It sounds like the battery has come to the end of its life and you will need to replace it.

    Most laptop batteries in my opinion only last 18months to 2 years before they need replacement, this is common to most all laptops.

    hope this helps.

    Hi I have a acer aspire 5720 laptop had it about 1 year the orange light on the front which shows battery charging started to flash and when I moved the charger wire it flashes on and off I bought another...

    Usually when you see this flashinf indicator it is a failing battery. IT maybe that some of the cells in the battery are failing and refusing to accept a charge, in that case the battery will actually damage the charger.
