Make sure your charger is still working,if so then if the battery continues not to charge,your battery is bad,you need to get a new one.

Won't charge


Not really enough info here but I'm assuming you have a laptop that won't charge?

If the laptop runs while plugged into the AC power adapter but will not charge the battery, the battery will need to be replaced.

If the laptop will not run with AC adapter AND it won't charge you should test the AC adapter to confirm operation. It may be faulty. If it's not you likely have a bad system board on the laptop and should replace the laptop.

Microcenter.com has very good refurbished laptop deals that may suit your needs.

Gateway model mx3228 laptop will not turn on power supply seems to be okay and when i try to hard boot all I get is a pink light by the battery could it be just a problem with the battery


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Have a Gateway Laptop Computer Model #MT6708. Previously computer had blank screen and no power. Currently purchased new battery and power cord. Computer now operating screen and power is on. However, when...


First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

My laptop will not charge


Even if it's new it doesn't mean that it works. Either get another charger or power supply, or check the battery. But I'll go with the "new" charger.

via usb is not possible to charge it because the usb voltage is 5 volts and the laptop input charger at the connector is 18 volts. so no, but there is a way to charge the battery externally.

Acer aspire 3050 new battey will not charge


Sometimes batteries need a full 24 hr initial charge before they will work. You would be advised not to use the M/C during this period. Also it will take several charges before the battery reaches it's optimal performance.

This could be the problem so it's worth a try.

Charging Problems with FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PRO V2055


SOunds to me like the charge board inside the laptop has gone bad. If it will not run off of the mains supply without the battery and will not charge the battery, this is your problem. AS far as where you can get the parts or have it repaired. I am unsure of because I would need the full model and make of the laptop which didn't fit in the listing title bar above If you could send me more info, I would be glad to try to help.

Jack is loose where charger plugs in


This same thing is happening with my acer laptop. I sent it to the company about 3 months ago, and it happened again. I really need my laptop and cant take a month without it. I advise sending it in to be fixed to your laptop company.
Good luck (:
