Hi,the reason why your laptop is telling you to replace Battery is,you have killed your battery without knowing by Charging it always,since you have constant power supply,you should at least after getting a new Battery,discharge it four to five times a week longer life of battery,by these i mean,unplug cord from mains let power drain to 5% or 10% before charging again while working and if fully charged and you are not making use of it disconnect and if you want to make use of it use battery instead do not connect immediately to mains until power drains from battery.Just like your mobile phone,you only charge it when need be(ie. when Battery is Low).

PROBLEM TURNING ON A LAPTOP


First of all charge the battery with the original charger.
30 Minutes later Then Just Presss the power switch at the upper right side of the keyboard.
If not, Replace the battery with the same code, and number part lacated at the battery printed label.
If the Laptop do not turn it On is a battery failure.
If it have more than two years of manufacturated just replace it.
Batteries without charging about a lot of time get batteries in failure.
Always you have to charge batteries to stay ok them.

Batter wont stay charge


Most laptop batteries have a life expectancy of two years or 400 to 450 charge and discharge cycles. After this time, the battery may lose the ability to charge or to hold a charge for substantial periods of time. When this happens, it's likely the battery needs replacement. However, troubleshooting can narrow the problem and ensure you are not wasting money on a battery replacement.

Check Power Adapter Turn the laptop off. Remove any power cords or power sources. Separate the battery from the bottom of the laptop. Slide or press the locking mechanism to unlock the battery. Slide the battery out of the battery compartment. Plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Insert the opposite end of the adapter into the charging outlet on the side of a laptop. Power on the laptop. If the laptop does not turn on, the power adapter is not correctly working. If the power adapter is not working, the battery can not charge. Replace the power adapter. If the laptop powers on, the power adapter is properly working. Clean Battery Contacts Turn the computer off. Remove any power cords or sources. Take the battery out of the battery compartment. Dip a cotton swab in isopropyl alcohol. Rub the dampened swab on the battery compartment and battery contacts. Dust and buildup can prevent battery contacts from properly charging. Slide the battery back into the battery compartment. b> Charge and Test Battery Plug the power adapter into the laptop. Charge the battery for six hours. Remove the power adapter. Turn the laptop on. If the laptop turns on and stays on for at least 30 minutes, the battery is holding a charge. If the laptop doesn't turn on or the battery doesn't power the laptop for at least 30 minutes, the battery should be replaced.

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.

Batteries have a mind of their own!
Turn the laptop on and let it run the battery down completey. Don't worry about losing data as laptops, when set up properly, have a small sector on the hard drive that stores an image of the hard drive in machine code.
Run the battery down, re charge it with the laptop and repeat the routine at least 4 times. This should increase the likelyhood of an extended life of the battery.
When batteries are left charging permanently, they lose their charge life.
Hope this helps.

Yes i bought an emachine laptop and had it for a while now, and i was wondering, i always use it and leave it charge all night well now it won't charge at all and it won't even turn on !! Can you please...


Hi,
There could be to reasons , that the laptop is not charging.
1. The battery may have reached end of its charging cycle( Laptop batteries need to be replaced after 1 year to 1.5 Years of use)
2. A faulty ac adapter can also cause the same issue.

The best step forward, would be first try checking it with an alternate adapter.

Thanks for using Fixya

My Batter is never fully charged , I am always on mains. HELP PLEASE


Unfortunatly, laptop manufacturers dont usually tell you that running your laptop on mains, after the battery has fully charged, damages the battery. This is especially true of LI-ON batteries.
You are supposed to charge the battery, then either disconnect and use on battery, or remove the battery and stay on mains.
This is not of much help to you if your battery now no longer lasts more than a few minutes.
You will need a replacement battery if you wish to use it on battery again.
Looks like they start about £45

My hp pavilion dv 6000 does not stay charged even when plugged in


Batteries fail alot, and what they dont tell you is that modern Li-on batteries get damaged if you leave your computer plugged in all the time.
You need to charge the battery and then run it on battery power.
Sounds like your battery is knackered, you can get replacements. I googled your model and found 1 for £23

Toshiba satellite m35 power issues


Hi !
While power off, disconnect the power adaptor.
Take off battery.

Plug the power adaptor back and try to start !
Is it running?

If yes, than the power adaptor is OK.

Now shut down and disconnect the power adaptor.
Put back your battery and start!
Leave it untill you 'empty' the battery.
Do not start your laptop.

Plug the power adaptor and do not start your laptop yet.
Is there a led idicator showing that the battery is charging ?
Does it shows when the battery is full charged (e.g. red/yellow=charging, to green/off charged)?
If not, leave it for at least 3 hours. After that, start your laptop (adaptor is plugged) and see if you still have an icon saying charging 99%.

If that is the case, then something is wrong with the battery.

Check your warranty, and replace it.
DO NOT OPEN the battery - nothing interesting you will find inside - nothing you can do !

Regards.
