Try to calibrate the battery.
Start your laptop, and let it die (don't plug in the wallet) Reload (off course with the adapter) and do this at least 2 times.
Hope it works.

2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it

SOURCE: Advent 7113 doesn't detect mains

It is highly posible that the jack in your laptop where you plug the main dapter is making a false contcat due to a problem in the welding of its connectors to the main board or to corrosion. Check if the rentral plug is not loose or if the plugs seems to be loose when you plug it.
If it is so, you need some expert technician to solve the problem by re weilding it or replacing it.

Battery does not seem to hold charge on Advent 9115 laptop. 18 months old. Charged overnight. Switches off within half hour of switching on.


Sounds like your battery is dying.

Laptops should not be run on mains power all the time, it kills the battery. Should be run on battery until battery warning occurs, then plug in to recharge.

You'll need a new battery at this stage.

Advent laptop wont charge up or switch on


Hello

This is a battery problem.But first try charging your laptop with another power cord to see if it works

If it doesn't,remove the battery from the laptop and plug the laptop directly into power if the laptop comes on,that means that the battery is dead and you should get a new one

Your battery cell unfortunately seems to have run dry. The most favorable solution is usually to get a new battery for your computer.

It was the BATTERY all along !!!!! Incidentally the new battery bought mail order from China was no good as it would not boot-up the laptop. The curious thing was that if the laptop was booted-up using mains power, the Chinese battery would then last long enough to play an entire feature film and more! The "Tech Guys" test battery was also no good and the technicians at that well known computer store claimed that the laptop was faulty, WRONG! Eventually I bought a scrap laptop of a similar type with a view to swapping the power controller board. The scrap laptop happened to have a battery fitted so the "scrap" battery was tried. Voila! all came good! After THREE dud batteries (including the test battery at the computer store) the problem was solved.



One can surmise that during the boot-up, computers take a heavy power draw. One can also surmise that the Lithium Ion batteries have current limiters built-in in order to prevent them from catching fire. If the current limiter is set too low the laptop will not boot. Those 2.8 GHz Pentium 4s were always renowned as hungry power-guzzlers and that was the problem.



The sad thing was that once it was all fixed-up, defragged and memory maxed-out, it got stolen in a burglary. Shame as it was a really good machine. These days I ONLY buy crappy low powered computers as why donate an i5 or i7 machine to your local drug addicts?
