Although both could be the culprit, it is far more likely that the battery has gone dead.

My acer battery is not charging


Laptop battery problems are quite common among owners of all brands of notebooks. On average, laptop batteries last one to three years. Their exact lifespan depends on several factors, such as how much you use the batteries, the number of charge-discharge cycles and the quality of the batteries. Lithium-ion batteries begin to lose the ability to hold a charge over time. Before you replace a laptop battery, consider that there may be other reasons that the laptop is not working properly. You may be able to recharge the battery instead.

1.Determine if the laptop battery is defective. While less than 1 percent of batteries are defective, the possibility is still there. If the battery is new and only charges some of the way, it may just require a BIOS update to charge fully. New batteries that refuse to charge at all may be defective. Purchase a new laptop battery to replace the defective one.

2. Test the acer power adapter to see if it's faulty. Run the laptop directly from the laptop power adapter and without the battery. If the laptop does not work with the adapter plugged in, the adapter is dead and you will need to replace it. The laptop battery may refuse to charge if the adapter is faulty. Charge the battery with the laptop turned off.

3. Insert the laptop battery into another laptop to test it. If the laptop battery charges in another laptop, the laptop's motherboard may be bad. Replacing a motherboard in a computer can be very expensive. If the cost to fix the computer is not worth the cost of replacing the motherboard, consider purchasing a new laptop.

4. Reinstall the battery to ensure all connectors latch properly. The latch mechanism that holds the laptop battery should click into place. If the latch does not close, remove the battery and examine the compartment for signs of damage.

5. Troubleshoot the BIOS to determine if there is a hardware problem. Turn on the laptop and immediately enter BIOS setup by holding down the "Del" and "F1" or "F2" keys, depending on the make and model of the laptop. When the BIOS screen appears, see how long it takes for the battery to charge down. If the battery does not last as long as the BIOS setup, a hardware failure may be the problem.I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Acer 5742 will not charge the battery


Before you replace the Mobo, test the battery and try another cord/charger of the exact type/power specs. If the AC jack is damaged, due to a pull, yank, tug....etc. on the cord, the AC jack may need replacing. It's difficult to say for sure, without eliminating other factor, the ones I mentioned. I assume a QUALIFIED computer tech told you the Mobo needed replacing??? Is the battery a replacement? Is the cord original?

My IBM Thinkpad T22's battery doesnt last. can i fix that?


Basically you need a new battery. Recharageable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and they lose their full charge capacity as the get older. The batteries will have less capacity over time ie less available battery time, and when it is worn out, it won't charge at all.

Problem with the battery.


Laptop batteries are notorious for having short life spans if not 'babied' correctly. Similar to car batteries, discharging and recharging can only last for so long, until they, without notice, stop holding a charge. This is for batteries acroos the board, whether Acer, IBM, Black or White, they just don't last very long. They are made as a consumable. The BIOS trick may be true for some, but not for all issues. To update the BIOS, one has to visit their respected Notebook manufacturer's website, usually under 'Support' or 'Downloads' section and check to see whether you have the most current version. If one does not have the most current, download either the floppy version (if floppy disk drive available), or the executable one to your PC. The floppy type will automatically (usually) format and created the BIOS or 'firmware' update disk of your choosing. Full instructions are usually on the support site.
