It seems that you battery is not taking a good charge any more that is an indication that you may want to invest in a new battery for your lap top I usually get mine they are way cheaper than the factory ones. Make sure that you get the right match exactally for it. If this does not do the trick then purchase a new power supply unit also start with the battery first they are cheaper both are not that expensive if you go online I use amazon.com and then type in the model of your computer. Thanks for using fixYa! John

Lenovo Ideapad Z570: Battery indicator shows the Power is plugged in & charging. But the Battery charge percentage doesn't increase. How to fix this?


The battery might be nearing the end of it's useful life and needs to be replaced. The battery only lasts for so long then it has to be replaced.

Buy a battery on ebay base on your computer's Make and model, not the model of the battery.

My laptop shows red cross sign in battery and says consider replacing a battery!!what to do does it have any solution and battery life has decreased to 50 min. from 2 and half hour,i bought it just a year...


Hi there,

If the message says consider replacing the battery, I guess the battery life is about to end.

Its good to replace the battery if you have used to laptop for more that 3 years now. Normally that is the max battery life.

However, if the laptop is new and still under warranty, you need to contact your vendor for possible free replacement, since it is abnormal for the battery to wear in such a short time.

Also make sure the replacement battery is perfectly compatible to your laptop. Your vendor can guide you more.

I have replaced batteries in the past. Remove it from the laptop and get the number off of it. Then you can go and Google the number to find a reasonably priced replacement.

Hope this helps you.

If the laptop is still working when it is plugged in , then the ac adapter is good and the battery is just bad. If the laptop will not work when it is plugged in then more than likely the ac adapter is bad.

Don't worry just replace the battery of the laptop and your problem will be fixed.
It is because your laptop's battery has become old.

I have a new e627 used only once before today. Battery connection was partially out and screen indicated low battery. After five minutes screen went black and now I cannot power up.


Maybe your battery is totally drained.

Try to connect the AC adaptor of your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet and let it charge for 3 hours or more. When you plug it on the wall socket, it won't show the laptop's led blinking since it was totally drained. But after 3 minutes or more, it will start to show the blinking led to indicate charging. When blinking stops led light disappears, it is fully charged and ready to use.

Remember: Do not use your laptop while it is plugged in to save your battery life. When at home, remove the battery while it is fully charged and plug the AC adaptor directly to the wall outlet. It will still work without the battery as long as it is plugged directly to the wall socket.

Inspiron runs on ac power but not battery


Sounds like you have a faulty ac adapter or jack on the laptop and its not charging the battery fully. More like a trickle charge. I would recommend leaving the laptop on default power settings or the best power settings and see if their is a differance in life or either shutdown the laptop and let it charge until the light shows fully charged.
