With my RV511 it is a hardware issue. Specifically where the power plug goes into the laptop. Check this connection. Twist it, see if the charging light comes on. Faulty connection at this juncture.

THIS IS THE SOLUTION AND IT WILL TAKE 90 SECONDS TO FIX

Power management software in Windows Vista

Understanding battery charging issues
If the notebook battery is not charging or the notebook does not indicate that the battery is charging, the most likely scenario is that the battery itself is operating correctly, but its power management software may have become corrupt. In order to correct the problem, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software by using the Device Manager. This document will explain how to uninstall and reinstall the ACPI Battery listings in Windows Vista, as well as how to obtain and install updated BIOS files, if needed to correct other battery issues.
Uninstalling and reinstalling power management software in Windows Vista
In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.

1. Click Start and type device in the search field, then select Device Manager .

2. Expand the Batteries category.

3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall .
WARNING: Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.

4. On the Device Manager taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes .
Alternately, select Action > Scan for hardware changes .
Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.

Samsung R511 blinking orange with battery in its slot/place. Removing battery results in green light but laptop does not boot...not even bios screen. ..just remains dead. Laptop works normal with charged...


R511 or RV511-a01. use correct model?
R511 is DVR player, so I call TYPO.
answering for RV511 now. ( 8 years old at least)
Notebook NP-RV511 , this? with windows 7 still?
you said it runs normal with a charged battery
is that history past or now.

then you said, remedy, and my socks fall off
what? "without battery and work on AC, no battery)
so you are saying the power pack is dead.
buy one, end this saga., $15 power pack off fleabay.


the #1 cause of bad troubleshooting is Assumptions/.
like my battery is good, you'd need a same PC known good to know that and test the battery there.to prove that. Batteries are the #1 failure mode of all PCs made. period. so.... even 1 year old !!! abused.
no battery lasts 8 years, ok

ECON110 , no tools , no meters, no spare parts to do tests. (am i right)
1: runs on AC ok battery out buy a new battery for $15

2: runs on battery only but not on AC only
buy a $15 AC power pack. (a dmm meter used now will prove its bad, (we test at the mobo jack live)

3: runs on AC but the new battery will not charge,
buy new mother board, the charging chip on board is toast $300

econ 101 wins lacking tools

or get the PC serviced in shop that has tools.

My samsung rv511 wont charge at all even though the charge is on, seems like something inside it might be wrong but I don't exactly know what?


You will need to replace the battery. Laptop batteries lasts approximately 3yrs. This can be significantly reduced if the laptop remains plugged in most of the time.

My Samsung RV511 Laptop isn't getting power.


Most likely problem in this instance is a loose dc socket. it is a cheap fix or you can re-solder it yourself, if you have the ability.

Rdrhow to find recharge componets on a215-s4807 motherboard?


POWER SUPPLY & BATTERY PROBLEM
If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Only 2 months old Samsung RV511 97% available (plugged in, not charging) uninstalled Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery then reinstalled but wont charge? Only 2 months old


ACPI control really has nothing to do with the underlying hardware. If the laptop is not charging or if it's not running off the battery, then you should take it in for warranty service - or have the manufacturer send you a replacement battery first, and see if that resolves the problem.

My Dell Vostro 1500 has a problem. AC adapter turned off when I plugged into laptop while battery plugged. It works either battery or AC adapter. Can't Charge battery. Please help!


Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.

Battery does not charge


Will the old battery (that you are replacing) charge up at all? If the old battery charges but the new battery will not, then it's likely a bad replacement battery.

To rule out the possibility of a corrupted battery meter inside of windows, you may wish to leave the laptop on battery power only, until it dies. A 5% charge will usually only grant you about 20 minutes of laptop life maximum. Since you left it charging all night, you should get a few hours of life before it dies. If you get a few hours of life, the battery meter software is corrupted.

Most likely though, the replacement battery is bad.
