There is a button on the battery itself next to 5 LEDs. That is your test button. (mainly lets you know how much of a charge is left).
BTW, if this is an older battery (3 Years or more) it may need replacing due to a safety issue.

Hi Kenneth,
Have you checked to see if the charge connector on the laptop is loose when you plug the charger into it? You can see if it is by plugging it in and wiggle it around a bit. The charge light on the laptop might stop blinking if its moved and contact is made.

Thanks,
Gary

Hi

Can you please try to leave laptop switched off
plug in laptop and leave until the light on front goes green or at least 2/3 hrs

then unplug power cord
switch on laptop and use it or leave it until it looses all power and switches off

then recharge until green

when battery is fully charged always un plug and use on battery power
until it reaches about 10% before recharging

some people even remove their battery to preserve it if they always use power cord

if this does not sort the problem please come back to us

many thanks

Let the battery power down, plugged back in and now computer will not come on at all, took battery out, nothing, not even the little battery flash light, even tho power cord in and blue light around cord


Need to check the power cord to see if it is running at 19.5 fisrt. The power cord may be your whole problemand it cheaper than the other problem I see.
If power cord is ok take battery to the battery store to check it's cells. it sounds like to battery is bad. but the power cord should still bring the unit up. If the battery is ok and the power cord checks out the charging unit is bad and is costly.

Laptop Battery Wont Hold Charge


Hi there.
Chances are that one of the cells in the battery is faulty causing it to not charge up, if the laptop runs ok on AC power only then you have to replace the battery, try get a battery that you know works and try that.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi there
Take the battery out and start the laptop up on AC power only, set the correct date, time and time zone, shut down the PC and remove the power jack, wait about 30 seconds then power it up on AC only again, If the date and time has changed the the cmos battery has run out and needs replacing. If it keeps date and time the problem is the battery or the powerboard controller that charges the battery is defective. If the battery is getting a charge, run the battery completely out of charge, then try to charge it again.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
