It is VERY difficult to break a wire or connection internally dropping, shaking, or otherwise damaging the laptop. But I'm going to try and give you an answer without just telling you, "the batteries bad get a new one."

That said, typically batteries either are good and hold a charge or they are bad and they don't. There isn't a lot to a laptop between the battery and power-supply. So, assuming the laptop is in fairly good condition, you will probably just need to replace the battery.

A lot can make the battery fail faster than it should. I've been told for example that running on a car phase converter all the time to charge your batteries, no running on batteries very often so that your always charging, etc. can lower battery life.

The only other problem I can think related to batteries is where the contacts have become corroded on the battery itself or in the laptop where the battery connects, which is something you should be able to visibly see.

If this is the case however and they are rusty, you can clean them off with a pencil eraser, cotton swab and sprite, or alcohol.

You can also use an ohmmeter to check the voltage both from the machine and in the battery itself.

Hopefully something here will help you with your problem.

Charging light is going on continously. what should we do?

Sounds like battery is not accepting a charge. Take your mouse and "hover" over the battery icon in the lower right corner of your desktop and see if it says "charing". If not, you may need a new battery.

Hello, use the charger on another laptop and use another charge with your laptop. By so doing, you would now if its a charge fault or not. If its not a charger fault, it means the charging socket or the power board of the laptop is defective. You need to disassemble the laptop to get to the root of the problem. Regards.

Acer 5315 wont turn on and wont chare, no lights at all on laptop but charger fully working.if i eventually get it to turn on it turns straight back off

If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Battery is not chared while laptop is running with a.c. power

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.

Battery not chaging, light flashs 4 amber and 1 blue.

You have had a flat battery for a long time hence the cells tend to be dead. Make sure the power adapting is remitting the right voltage with the use of a multimeter set to dc voltage at 20V. Most power adapters are within the range of 13 and 19.5V, so 20V dc should be selected for a correct reading ok. Having comfirmed that to be ok, you should just power off your pc and have it connected to a power outlet for a least 2hours. If there is still no sign of battery life, then it should be changed as it might have exceeded its life span. Most of such batteries have an average life span of 5 years depending on use though. Good luck
