Hi,

The laptop will operate with or without the battery as long as the AC adapter is plugged in. The purpose of the adapter is both to charge the battery and provide power to the laptop. This is of course assuming that everything else works and has no issue.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My laptop will not work on the battery and i need to keep it plugged in although the battery say 100% charged, why


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.

E machine 510 wont charge!


Yes, remove the battery from the laptop.

Plug-in power adapter and turn ON laptop (without battery).

After the laptop starts up and Windows has settled, put battery back in the laptop.

Allow to charge for a few hours.

Pasario 6500 laptop will not charge, charger is plugged in, turned on and laptop is running on mains power but it will not charge the battery


Most likely your battery stopped recharging. Depending on what type it is, and how old it is, it could be dead by now and needs replacing.
Most laptops can operate connected to their power supplies, even when the battery is taken out.
Some batteries need to be fully discharged for them to take a new charge and perform as new, up to a 1,000 times, according to their manufacturer's specs. Others have what's called a "memory effect". This prevents them from taking a full charge, especially when connected to the laptop almost 100% of the time, and using up some of their charge only ocassionally, when they are disconnected from their power supplies.
You can get replacement ones on eBay for less than the manufacturer's advertised price.
Good luck!

New battery will not fully charge


Hi, I have three possible answers!

A.
You're computer may not be capable of charging the full 12 cells. (Its only supposed to have 6). So you will only be able to use half the cells. In this case there is nothing you can do apart from just enjoy the 6 recognised cells.

B.
You computer has not fully recognised the 12 cells so you may need to install drivers from the HP website. Or alternately if you know how to and or have the original windows install disks. Then you can re-install windows and it will probably recognise the new battery properly.

!WARNING THIS WILL ERASE DATA - YOU NEED TO BACK UP YOUR STUFF!

C.
The third option is that the battery is duff, take it back to where you brought it and tell then the problem, they mey be able to help you or give you another battery.

My Hp laptop battery showing red color and the condtion is not good


How old is the laptop? If it's older then 1 year it's just getting old. I recommend taking the battery out when it's plugged in for long periods of time. Batterie's that are being charged all the time will die faster, of course this wont help you now, but for future ref. I hope this helps.

Battery is showing its there and at 82% and charging but not charging and laptop crashes when mains fails ?


The laptop's battery might be weak to hold the laptop. The indicator will indicate the battery is ok, but when mains is removed there, it goes off. Try swtch on with only battery and see if it goes on and then off, it is the battery that is bad.

Laptop battery wot charge to 100%


Please help us help you.....

1. Brand of laptop
2. Model of laptop

Alot of laptop batteries decrease in charge value throughout use. If your laptop is an HP it has a battery restore program with the orginal software sent with your HP laptop. It takes an overnight commitment to let the program run but it usally restores the life of the laptop battery. Another solution would to be buy a new one off ebay.
