Lenovo G550 battery shows fully charged but when you unplug the laptop, the laptop shuts down and will not start up again until power cord is plugged back in.


Shows a clear indication of the battery to be faulty. So in the first place remove the battery and checck the voltage, now keeping the battery off the laptop, plug the adaptor to the mains, Now checck the voltage in the battery terminals which is in the battery compartment. If voltage is present then the battery is bad as it is not charging.
However if there is no voltage then the main board has a fault in the charging section which must be looked into.

Hi, On my aspire L310 the logo ACER stays on to long (over a min). I checked in BIOS but dont see any way to reduce or to eliminate the logo. Do you have any solution for my problem? Sinerely...


Acer displays that logo to cover up the 'ugly' POST code that runs every time your computer starts up. If it used to do this quickly before but has now slowed down then your computer may be discovering various hardware issues on startup. This can also happen if your CMOS battery (which keeps the internal clock working) is running down.

First thing to do is update your BIOS by visiting Acer's support site and installing the latest one they have for our model.

If this does nothing to improve the POST time and you feel comfortable taking apart your min-desktop. Check for bubbling capacitors.
These can be replaced.

If all else fails, check the CMOS battery. It is a small coin sized battery connected to the motherboard. It is a standard battery you can find at the drugstore.

Pasario 6500 laptop will not charge, charger is plugged in, turned on and laptop is running on mains power but it will not charge the battery


Most likely your battery stopped recharging. Depending on what type it is, and how old it is, it could be dead by now and needs replacing.
Most laptops can operate connected to their power supplies, even when the battery is taken out.
Some batteries need to be fully discharged for them to take a new charge and perform as new, up to a 1,000 times, according to their manufacturer's specs. Others have what's called a "memory effect". This prevents them from taking a full charge, especially when connected to the laptop almost 100% of the time, and using up some of their charge only ocassionally, when they are disconnected from their power supplies.
You can get replacement ones on eBay for less than the manufacturer's advertised price.
Good luck!

Hi, I have the NEC Versa M300 laptop. Today I tried to run it from the battery and it is dead. I have attached the mains and it works fine. The amber battery charge light came on for about 1 min then went...


This problem has been solved. After testing the output voltage on the main board and then the battery, it seems that the battery just gave up. It went from giving at least a 2hour life, to zero overnight without any other indiction of a problem.

I have an Acer 5601AWLMi, when i boot up with the battery, the laptop is frozen and i can't do anything. Also the battery does not charge. Everything works fine when plugged into the mains. Any help or...


You may have a defective battery. It no longer delivers the required voltage to make your laptop work optimally. Some components will not work when those do not receive enough electricity. When you insert the plug to the mains you get the required power to make the components of your laptop work. You may try to remove your battery and plug to the mains. If this works without problems, then you must change your battery.

Laptop compaq presario f500,running vista.Wireless is not working,Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)

I experienced this problem last night, and seemed to have fixed it this morning.

SYMPTOMS: HP Pavilion dv9000, Win Vista x64 Ultimate. Running on battery, battery level became critical; windows went into 'Hibernate' mode. Upon plugging in to mains power, and resuming the Windows session, the Wireless is still disabled, no matter what position the switch is in.


POSSIBLE CAUSE: Critical battery switches off the wireless network card to preserve power. Motherboard seems to log this status but when re-connecting to mains power the card does not receive power again. Uninstalling the driver and getting Windows to re-install automatically upon re-boot does not work.


SOLUTION: Charge up the battery whilst the computer is running. You can charge it to a substantial level, say, above 25%. Disconnect mains power so that your laptop is running on battery only. Set your wireless switch to OFF (this is usually to the left position, away from the orange indicator). Now run your computer down to the critical battery level again (perhaps overnight). In the morning when you press the power button, the 'CHARGE' indicator (looks like a lightning bolt) on the front of the laptop should flash quickly, indicating that there is no charge in the battery. Remove the battery from the laptop's underside. Wait a couple of seconds, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Keeping the battery off the laptop, reconnect mains power. Boot up your PC. When at the Windows desktop and all your startup programs have finished loading, switch your wireless on (to the right position). You should now have a blue light, and wireless should once again be working. You can now re-insert your battery. You might have to setup your wireless network connection again as mine seemed to be 'lost', but at least hopefully the main problem is now fixed.

Acer aspire 4920 charging mechanism failed


Most laptops, as in 99%, have one board and everything is on it. They don't really have a power supply since the AC adpater provides DC voltage already. There is just a voltage divider that take the incomming voltage and changes it to the various voltages the machine needs. The charging mechanism is also on the mainboard. I've very seldom seen a seperate power or charging board in a laptop. Unfortunately since you've already replaced the battery and the ac adapter and since the adapter is powering the laptop then there is definitely a problem with the charging circuitry on the mainboard. This isn't something one can repair unless you start changing micro components and ICs on the board which isn't recommended. Looks like a new mainboard or a new laptop is in your future if you want it to run off battery.

Another option is to get an external battery that mimics your ac adapter but that wouldn't give you a very long run time compared to the internal battery.

Don't forget to rate my solution in your premium thread as FixYa if you think I helped solve your problem. Thanks.

I cannot switch on my Acer travelmate 283XC. The battery went flat and I have now plugged it in the wall but when I press the power button nothing happens...


Try this; Disconnect from the AC outlet rmove the dc plug from the jack. Remove the Battery and wait for 5 mins and plug in the AC? DC adaptor without the battery. If the Laptop runs, then wait for the Windows to totally boot up and while running try to put back the battery and observe if it still charges. If not then try to replace the battery with a new one.


hope this helps.
