I bought this laptop a couple months ago and since i got it, the battery has just not charged. it just says "plugged in, not charging" i tried another power cable and it charged for 30 seconds then stopped charging but it still said "plugged in, charging" even though it wasn't charging.
I installed Windows 7 Ultimate, downloaded software/installed software the entire time, and browsed the internet).
Anyway, I plugged it in today, and it's been charging for just over 4 hours now and it's only at 78%...is this unusually slow to charge? Should I send mine back? I've never had a proper working battery take this long to charge, even 9 cells.
I've had my Acer Aspire 3050-1905 for about 8-9 months. For the most part I've always left the a/c plugged in. Well a few days ago I decided to drain the battery and when I charged the battery it won't go past 4% charged. It works fine with the battery out and ac plugged in. But when I try to charge the battery it won't go past 4%. I used NHC and the wear level is at 0%.
I have an Acer Aspire V3-771G which I got in 2013. I've had no battery problems before. Earlier this month I noticed that the orange charging light remained on longer than usual. I turned my computer on and noticed that it said that the battery was 98% charged and charging.I have not done the procedure of discharging and recharging the battery three times as mentioned in the manual.
I have not removed the battery since I first installed it (it came with the computer). I don't normally use the laptop on battery power unless it happens to be on during a power outage.I would like to know if I need a new battery or not, as I am concerned as to if the laptop will be continuously trying to fully charge the battery thus wearing it out prematurely.The computer came with Windows 8. I have installed Windows 8.1.
I bought a new battery for my Aspire-One (AOA110) netbook. I flashed the BIOS according to instructions and, after waiting for a day while the netbook was telling me that the battery was being charged, the netbook told me that the battery was 100% charged. I disconnected the charging cable and, immediately, the netbook told me that I had to reconnect it because the netbook was out of power. The battery charge had immediately dropped from 100% to 0%!
I have repeated the same operation several times, with identical results. Is the new battery defective? Or should I do something else?
I have just purchased a new acer aspire and when I plug in the ac the computer starts to beep every few seconds. the message i get is the battery is attached but not charging. The laptop runs fine off the ac without the battery, but when the battery is in ,it beeps and does not charge?
The computer is in dead state the next morning after I switched its Windows power plan to high performance. In order to unlock power plan options, I disabled connected standby via a registry key in HKLMSystemControlSet001ControlPowerCsEnabled to 0.
After investigating, I read that this computer doesn't support normal hibernate wake-up process other than connected standby. I select shut down option in the menu (hibernate option disappeared). It's possible that shut down option in the menu was actually set to sleep/hibernate in power settings by default.
The battery was at 100% before I last turned it off.
The LED power indicator doesn't light on when power supply is connected on either DC or microUsb.
the hole on the laptop where you plug in the charger seems to be broken. the charger itself still has a green light, so i don't think that is the problem. i would have to sit there and hold the charger in a certain place the entire time i was on it. and it seemed to be harder and harder to get it to charge until eventually it stopped all together. what i want to do is download all of my pictures on there to a disc. i don't have a problem sending it to acer and getting it fixed, but i don't want the hard drive wiped clean yet. all i really need is a charged battery to borrow for like 20 minutes until i am finished downloading my pictures. i live in erie,pa. unless there is another way to charge the battery i have? or some other solution.
I have an aspire 5542g which has been working well, however I have noticed it is not charging.When I plu the charger in, the green led on the cord lights up and the Orange light on the front of the laptop lights up, but the blue light which indicates it is charging is pulsing on and off and is very dim. Has been working fine up until now.Is it likely to be the battery or charger that is the problem.
I have tried multiple power adpaters, and I cannot get the power LED to light or the laptop to turn on. It was fully charged when I shut the lid. 15 minutes later when I opened the lid, no LEDs and no power.
Our Acer Aspire One 725-0845 will not charge. It is plugged in with the power cord, but the charging light does not blink and the amount of power left in the battery is dropping. I'm thinking it is:
1. a faulty power cord (Model R33030) or 2. a faulty battery
But do not know how to determine for sure, or if there may be a different issue. I have tried plugging into different wall sockets and playing around with the plug attachment to the computer, to no avail.
My battery has not held more than about a 45-second charge since 2009; however, the AC adaptor seems to work fine, and the Power Management icon always tells me that I have a full (i.e., about 45-second) charge and that the AC adaptor is plugged in. Today, just after I disabled the Acer Tour Reminder, CyberLink PlayMovie, and Microsoft Office OneNote (because I never use them and I wanted a faster startup), I moved some program icons that I didn't need or that were already on my Quick Launch tool bar into the Recycle Bin. Suddenly, the notebook make sort of an electronic squeaking sound and immediately shut down--black screen; no lights.
I unplugged it, checked to ensure the battery was properly seated, felt to make sure it did not feel hot anywhere, plugged it in, saw that the lights were showing on the adaptor and on the front left edge of the notebook, turned it on, and selected normal start; it started up again. It ran for at least three minutes (which, because of the battery, it would not unless the AC adaptor was functioning) and then, after I moved a few more icons to the Recycle Bin, it suddenly shut down again in the same manner.
I started it again and it has now been running long enough for me to look up my Acer Forum registration information and update it after resetting my password. I am writing this on another notebook. The Acer is still running, but I want to ensure it doesn't shut down on me when I am in the middle of a project.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. The 6-cell battery that came with it stopped holding its charge, so I bought a new 9-cell battery. Now that one won't hold a charge. I figured it must be the cord, so I bought a new one. It still won't hold a charge. When I run my mouse over the battery icon, it says XX% (currently 37%) available (plugged in, not charging). I know just enough about computers to be dangerous, but not enough to figure out what is wrong. Can anyone help me trouble shoot?
i've had my Z for for a couple weeks now. previously i had a vaio FW which has been used for a good year or so. by now, the battery on my FW is pretty much useless because it cannot hold enough charge to keep the laptop running for 10 min without the charger being plugged in. however, i notice that my brand new Z isnt able to hold the charge 100% either. this was the case for my FW as well, and it progressively got worse to the point where, as mentioned, i couldnt run it without it plugged in. what's can i do about this? i'm trying to prevent this from happening to my Z since i will most definitely need it to run on battery life for a couple of hours during classes. when using my Z at home, i normally keep it plugged in (it have not let it reach 0% battery life yet). i've been keeping it plugged in even when it is off..that is the only way i see 100% battery life upon start up. if i leave it unplugged, when starting up, it will only display 96-98%. the longer i leave it unplugged, the lower the charge is when i start it up again (after about 8 hours unplugged and shut off, it'll show 92% at start up).
A while back I booted up the notebook and my battery light began blinking rapidly. The battery icon says the battery was at 100%, but it wont run or start up on the battery alone. I took this as being a battery issue and I've just been running it of the wall.
Just recently I bought a new battery and it ran off the new battery, which still had some juice (about 40%). I plugged the charger in and to my dissmay, watched the battery level decrease. So i'm thinking this is more of a laptop issue and not a battery issue....
My dv5t won't take a charge. The charge indicator light does not come on and the battery charge indicator graphic in windows doesn't show it is charging (plus the AC adapter isn't getting warm). My laptop is now out of charge and I have no way to use it. I think the connector at the PC end might be loose or something, but perhaps it is just the AC charge adapter.
The reason I say the conenctor at the laptop end might be loose it because I can wiggle the charging plug around in the socket quite a bit when it is plugged into the laptop power socket (the round socket at the rear of the right side). Sometimes the charge plug has weight on it when in my lap since the darn things sticks out so much, and I am wondering if I have caused the socket to malfunction internally (loose lead or something?).
I just bought a HP netbook for my sister for christmas and we got it all set up today fine. Only problem is that the battery (it's the extended battery - not sure how many cells) just will not charge. It has been plugged in all day so far today and it still reads as 0%, and when you unplug it, the computer will just die (because no battery power).
Granted the unit WAS an "open box" when I bought it so perhaps this is the reason it was originally returned, even though the unit looked brand new. What can I do to resolve this problem other?
I have replaced the battery. A computer repairperson has had me run the battery down and then charge it completely before I turn the computer on again. That would work sometimes. It would sometimes recharge if I unplugged it, shut off the computer, took the battery out, then replaced the battery and plugged it into the power cord. The computer had sometimes run on the power cord other times it would continue to run on the battery when it was plugged into the power cord. The computer battery has run down, even though plugged into the power cord. It will not recognize the power cord and charge. I have put the old battery into the computer and turned it on, so I know the computer will work with power. It does not charge the old battery either. I left the battery out for about 12 hours, replaced it, plugged it in and it still doesn't charge. There is not enough power in the battery to turn the computer on at this time. I would like to be able to charge it long enough to be able to get any files off the computer that haven't been backed up.
This seems to happen fairly often. Yesterday I had my computer on standby and plugged into the mains for several hours in the afternoon. I turned it on, shut it down (without looking at the battery status) and went somewhere and when I turned it back on the charge was at 6%.
Today I was using the laptop and the charge was at 70%, I shut the computer down and put it in my bag. Turned it on again in a couple of hours and the battery again is at 6%.
My initial thoughts were that I had a battery issue the Ion battery. So I went to dell and purchased a new battery 2 weeks ago. Plugged that guy in and my theory was a bust.
Next, I turned to the ac adapter and decided it must be the problem. Back to dell to drop some more $$$ - just arrived and...well, let's just say I wouldn't be writing to this post if that solved my problem. I have surfed through various other posting will no avail.
The laptop can run fine on just the ac power - just no juice is getting to the battery to recharge it. I went into the BIOS set-up and it stated that it did not recognize the ac adapter -
can't figure why that may be the case, but none of the less I've got nothing but Dell products here - no knock-offs. Any suggestions or theories? I just can't believe I could have a bad motherboard here - the laptop works great otherwise.
