Plug ac in...turn on pc...wait for boot then press and hold power switch(on pc)down until you hear shut down .restart.
if no luck remove battery and do the same precedure(without battery )
if/when pc startup and is in windows replace battery anytime.

    sounds like you need to reinstall windows but at the moment this may be difficult.

    make sure os is cd drive and start from cd .if system informs of no disk(this refers to hd)let me know if it dont you can reinstall windows.need any advice on this let me know.

    If you do have hd problem I can mail software to correct it.

    but try install from cd first.also wouldnt hurt to enter bios and reset to default first.

NEW Battery not properly charging

Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

I have a Dell Inspirion 1525. I have a fairly new after market replacement battery which I have only had now for 4 months. I am using Vista. As soon as I unplug, computer shuts down. I go to power settings...

The adapter is working correctly. The battery is either slow to charge or in need of replacement.

It's possible your battery isn't charging at all so to test this boot into bios -> battery status and watch it run overnight.

Turning on problems..

Is the power source a 15v 5a or a 15v 8A? You more than likely have a Dead system board. The blinking amber AC power led usually means a power failure due to improper voltage or amperage.
More than likely caused by a 3rd party (non-Toshiba) adapter.

Sorry for the bad news. :(

Compaq evo n610c battery not charging

Hello All;
I used to have these same problems. I replace my BIOS battery, which I know was dead, because all settings get reset when I unplug the power and remove main battery. You might not have to replace it if its still good. Back to the main battery problem, You have a good change of solving this by going into BIOS, and under Tools there is a Battery Calibration option. Do the calibration for the main battery and-or other optional batteries attach and it will most likely solve the problems. This calibration process will take a long time; 1-charge, 2-discharge, 3-recharge, so leave it over night or however.

There was a mention of updating BIOS. This could solve the problem too, because BIOS controls the charging unit. Also, make sure you have Compaq Power Management install on your OS, (download at hp.com).

One note: it will not charge if the battery is about 93% or higher. 93 is not exact, but close to 90%. so test by discharging to below 90% and it will start charging again.

If anyone tries this, leave a post of your success or failure.
