Generally yes! That battery may be toast.

One or more cells in the battery cannot take a charge or is shorted..

If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes to many popular brand lap-tops are given. In most cases, yours will be due to a weak battery inside it, which do not take charging current. Check it first by replacing the battery.

Lap top will not turn on. receives power from the cord and power supply, but has no indicating lights on the lower left part of laptop. was able to get the lap top to operate after removing and...


Measure the voltage at the terminals of the battery in the laptop. If there is no supply then the power section in the lap tops main board is faulty and needs a check.
However if there is voltage then the battery must be checked if this has failed to charge and is defective. check if the cord from the adapter is not short as it will result in DC power cut off.

Why does the battery light keep flashing?


The battery is failing to recharge itself.
Contact Dell -- a battery should last longer than that.

Dropped lap top now wont boot up


press the fn key on laptop hold it down and then press the power key on the laptop. once u see any display on the screen you will get some tests running on the screen. The system will show you the error message which u need to note down. else you can do a Flea Power on your laptop. Remove the adapter and the battery and then press the power button and hold it down for 30 seconds then connect the battery and adapter back and try to turn on the laptop. See if the magic works for you

Laptop Not booting - No Screen


Clean your memory card, or reseat it. Clean the edge connector with soft eraser if reseating doesn't solve it. Do this when battery is disconnected, completely turn off and no other power supply is connected to it. If not maybe ram failed already. This is the first step before going to anything. For additional instructions try to find it in youtube. Post us some update.tnx

My Compaq Presario C500T lap top won't start


Generally speaking, an orange power light indicates problems with the power. You also described to a "T" how a bad battery behaves. To test this theory, take out the battery and plug in the laptop. It should power up and run. If so, it's time to invest in a new battery.
To be doubly sure, if you have anyone with the same laptop as yourself, plug in their battery to your laptop. It should work if their battery is good.

I have ibm t23 or 2647


Try removing the backup battery for the bios and the main battery. The bios battery is a small little lithium battery usually located under the memory access panel. Killing the bios backup power causes it to lose its memory and go back to default, AKA No More Password. If this does not work you must find the security eeprom located somewhere on the motherboard and short pin 3 to pin 6 with a paper clip and power up. This will set the security eeprom back to manufacturing mode and once again, no more password.
In the most extreme cases the eeprom actually has to be replaced, this only occurs on very high end units. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Good luck.
George
Ps. you can find the location of the eeprom easy just google for your model laptops security eprom.

Lap top wont work


Hi

You may need a new battery. I would download software to check the battery.

Does the computer start with the AC plugged in and the battery removed?
