SOURCE: power supply works and new battery but machine

Given that the battery is relatively new, and that it seems to charge up OK when the machine is not in use, I doubt that this is a hardware problem. It could also be a normal limitation of the battery, I suppose, but I find that hard to believe.
My guess is that the problem is software related, and the fact that the battery does recharge when the laptop is started in ‘safe mode’ or when it is hibernating. Try that.

SOURCE: new battery incorrect - power supply no longer

If indeed you have connected a 20V battery to a 16V system you may have damaged your system to the extent that it is unecomomical to repair.

Hi power supply whent pop. PC worked on battery for 20 mins. got new power supply but will not charge. Is there any voltage protection inside and how do I get inside My Eeee900

It is very important to check the power output produced by the ac adapter. Make sure that the output voltage and ampere of the new power supply is the same with the original power supply provided with the laptop. The new power supply you purchased may be producing lower or higher ampere than the required power to turn on the unit and charge the battery.

I suggest to purchase ASUS Eee recommended power supply or ac adapter for your laptop before it gets damage by incorrect power voltage or ampere used.

Good luck!

My laptop only stays on with power supply attached (Battery Charger) If it is unplugged or powered up without the battery power supply. It will just blink, and if I try to power up it has the orange light...

I would say that it's highly probable that it only needs a new battery. As far as troubleshooting goes, that would be the first step. In many devices the power supply is not enough to power the device alone; but, the battery just has to be able to hold a residual charge to be able to run the device. This usually means that the powersupply is 'trying' to charge the battery. If replacing the battery doesn't work, then it's possible the regulator inside the device is not charging the battery properly. It's also possible, if it only needs a battery, continuing to use it like this will eventually burn out the regulator as it's always running on high. So, step one: Buy a new battery, should be fairly inexpensive nowadays. You could try alternate suppliers on the internet, you take your chances when you buy on eBay, however, the cheapest batteries are often found in Asia, but can take a month or more to arrive. But, it is the first step. Often, you can find a reputable repair company, they'll fix the regulator for a small charge above the cleaning charge, say $25-$50 + cleaning and shipping and handling. But, try a new battery first, as it appears that what little is left in the battery is failing, and if you keep doing it you can cause the power supply and/or regulator to fail too.

My pc shows power supply but states no charging

Replace the battery, or find a company (there's one in Seattle) that will "open" the battery-case, remove the dead batteries, and install new batteries, close the battery-case, and ship the "refurbished" battery back to you -- they are less-expensive than buying a "new" & "factory" battery.

Battery not getting charged-power supply on ac power

hi thanks for using fixya!!

Is your laptop is brand new? Try to remove the battery. Then, try using your laptop and AC adapter without the battery, you will get the power supply directily from AC adapter. If it works properly, then its okay. Now, try to install back your battery then try to charge it. If not charging, perhaps you need to buy a new battery. However, I suggest you bring your laptop to a service technician to further check the error, before you purchase a new battery.

If you need further assistance, let me know!

Need new LG AC Power Supply Model H-P 220

I had a similr problem It turned out that the power supply cord was not the problem, it was the main battery. Luckily, in 2000, I bought 2 extra main batteries. I took out the old battery and put in one the 2 new unused ones and my machine is working and charging perfectly now.
