Laptop not charging (Presairro C500)

My brother's laptop is not charging. Vista says it is charging, but the battery meter isn't going up. It seems that plugging it in only discharges the battery faster. What is the problem? We use his other laptop to chatge this one.

    Thanks. I'll get to it when I can

    Just a couple questions- how much (if any price), and what exactly does it do?

  • ae_7fam Aug 19, 2008

    TFT., but this is obviously a hardware. When the battery's removed, the power light blinks like crazy and something buzzes.

  • ae_7fam Mar 07, 2009

    OK... Sorryif I seemed rude. However, I know it is a HW problem. I have connected 4 different power supplies to it, 2 HP original, and they don't work with it. They are not faulty because they work perfectly well on another one.

Battery on permobil will not charge


First off, a Permobil C500 is not a PC laptop. Next time, please put this in the correct category.

Try charging up the battery/batteries with a auto car charger. Make sure the voltage is set correctly, and charge it on slow or low, 2Amps. Leave it on there for about 4 hours and see if the chair will run and for how long.
This should tell you if its the batteries or charger that's bad.

No power


This sounds like your power adapter is not charging/powering your machine, and the battery is dead. Using a volt/multi meter check the adapter's output. If it isn't what the input listed on the laptop, you will have to replace it. Be sure to test your laptop battery also. Good luck,

It is very rare that a new battery would no give proper backup. Ensure from your operating system (XP, Vista, Win7) etc that the battery is charging properly and it gets 100% charged.

If it is not chargerging, the issue could be with the charger

Let me know if any further clarification is required
Hope this helps

you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

C500 Laptop won't come on power button just flashes


Have you tried attaching an external monitor when the LCD screen is disconnected from the motherboard? this connector is located under the keyboard strip – a piece of plastic just above the keyboard.
If it works, this way, then the video cable isn’t seated properly in the connector on the back of the screen. Plugging the video cable back in should fix the problem.
I don’t know how comfortable you are with taking apart laptops but I think that this information could be useful for you.

Presario C500 Wont turn on


sounds like the d/c adapter was either installed backward or the wrong part was installed, also check the connector on the new power cord to the laptop, you may have gotton an incorrect power cord. because what you describe is the internal power system is shorting out. take battery out and check it with a volt meter , if the is no volts/or negative volts on the battery ,it has gotten internaly reversed , and needs replacement.

Targus ac70u adapter; 0% available, ( plugged in, not charging )


How old is your laptop? It may just be that you need a new battery if it won't hold a charge.

Further, this charger worked previously on this laptop and with this battery? If so, you definitely might be ready for a new battery.
