This indicates that your battery isn't functioning properly or is going bad. You need to replace the battery. Bateries are batteries, some are better than others and some wear out faster than others, even though they may be the same brand, eventually all batteries need replacing.

I HAVE A IBM THINK PAD MODEL T 42 AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN THE LIGHT KEEPS FLASHING LOW BATTERY AND I KEEP IT PLUGED IN AND THE BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE


Normal 0 If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all.
OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I guess your charger has very low power (low wattage). That is why it charges the battery when the laptop is off. But as soon as the laptop is on, the charger can't keep up with the power dreained by keeping the laptop on and eventually the battery runs outr of juice.
According to the user's manual (http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/manuals/acer/0000/userguides/AS5600_3680_UG.pdf)
I suggest you get a charger with at least 90 W.

This is directly from the User Manual:
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the Battery light operates as follows:
• Solid green: The battery is charging.
• Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
• Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).
• Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.
• Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.

Continuous alternating one green and three flashing red battery


note.gif NOTE: Battery operating time (the time the battery can hold a charge) decreases over time. Depending on how often the battery is used and the conditions under which it is used, you may need to purchase a new battery during the life of your computer. Check the battery status light — If the battery status light flashes orange or is a steady orange the battery charge is low or depleted. Connect the computer to an electrical outlet.
If the battery status light flashes green and orange, the battery is too hot to charge. Shut down the computer, disconnect the computer from the electrical outlet, and then let the battery and computer cool to room temperature.
If the battery status light rapidly flashes orange, the battery may be defective. Contact Dell _I found this on : http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd820/en/ug/index.htm Hope this helps and good luck. if i "fixed ya" please rate me. thanks-jmattes

Hp530 turn off suddenly


Get a power charging adaptor from HP (if a smart adaptor) or a generic anywhere that matches your spec. Your device is doing what mine did, but in addition mine beeped softly as a warning of failure. Being a smart adaptor, I had to order one from HP, a generic won't work.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon


If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

My battery won't charge - Toshiba P100-188 laptop


AHA!!! You are lucky for I just diagnosed that same problem for a friend of mine. Would it surprise you if I told you it was the cord? true the pc work when connected but charging and powering are two different things, and technically its not the cord but the box thats in the middle, sorry to inform you that they do not sell that part separately and its not cheap either, Your best choice would to be buy a universal one which is what I did for about $30 compared to $60-$90 are the real one :-( Anyway Hope this was helpful

Good Luck =)
