Hi and welcome to FixYa!

There could be a few reasons for this.

You may want to try another charger for the computer. It may be your actual cord.

Your soldering may have come loose to your and you may have to resolder the power receptacle to put it firmly back in place again or take it to a technician to have it professionally done.

If the whole receptacle is damaged, you will have to know the make/model of your computer and order a new part.

Hopefully, you still have the manufacturer warranty on your computer and you can just send it in to be repaired if it 2 or 3 solution.

I had a Toshiba that did the same thing and i used another cord. It wouldn't stay charged very long when unplugged though and i had to replace the power receptacle. In any case, you should get your receipt and take your battery back in where you purchased it and try one of the solutions provided.

Please rate this solution if it was helpful!

My Acer Aspire 5542-1011 will not charge the battery how do i fix it? The Battery is at 90% and won't charge.

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-661L I shut it down and it won't restart

do you get any leds when charger is inserted? if yes, try to remove battery, insert charger and press power on. also, i would recommend you test the output of your charger using a multimeter to rule out the possibility of a faulty charger.

I think your charger(battery) is not giving the right amount of charge and most probably its not of the same type which you should exchange from where you bought it for a compatible battery. Best would be to take ur Laptop and physically check that its charging because I doubt your laptops charging capacity has gone because it was charging your old one................sodeep

Battery doesn't stay charged

The problem is with the battery. All Lithium batteries last for around 1000 charges or so. Since the laptop is 2-years old the battery needs to be replaced.
I Hope this solves your problem. Kindly Accept my solution.

Lap top battery dead?

Probably the extreme heat and dryness out there drained it out, and or not being able to recharge it to full capacity. Did you charge it the recommended hours to charge when first used as stated in the manual the battery?. If you have access to a freezer put the battery in a ziploc bag seal and leave in the freezer overnight then take out and charge your battery overnight it might come back to life and hold it's charge once again.
