Acer Aspire One AO725 :: Battery Not Charging On Netbook?

Oct 25, 2014

I already tried the general fix for this offered by a few folks on Youtube and other sites, where you remove the battery and then uninstall the battery/power drivers in Device Manager.  Then turn off, put the battery back in and start up again, letting the drivers re-install afresh.  But this did not solve the problem for me.
 
Acer forums do not list this battery charging issue for the AO725 model, but they do mention it for a couple of other models of netbooks, saying that the battery will not charge once it reaches a state of complete depletion.  They instruct to update the BIOS.

Acer :: How To Access UEFI With Ao725-0687 Netbook

Dec 16, 2014

I have an ao725-0687 netbook with windows 8.1 (from the factory).  I wish to access UEFI (Bios).  The method at [URL] {Accessing the UEFI (BIOS) setup on a Windows 8 / 8.1 system} does not work on my machine.  My machine does NOT show the "UEFI Firmware Settings" button on the relevant page (but it DOES show the other 5 buttons shown in the video to be on that page).  How can I access UEFI on this machine?

Acer Aspire One AOA110 :: Cannot Charge New Battery In Netbook

Nov 14, 2014

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?

Acer Aspire E1 570 :: Battery Not Charging

Oct 28, 2014

Recently I have had some issues with the battery in my laptop not wanting to charge.  The battery is fine when I have it plugged in but when it is plugged in it won't charge.  If I let the battery fully die out I can't get it to charge at all.
 
I have tried removing the battery and shutting things down and holding down the power button to flush the power but that didn't work.  I have tried putting the battery back in when the computer was still on but that only lasted for an hour or two.  I have tried two different batteries thinking that was it was an issue with the battery but I still had the same issue.
 
I have also updated the BIOS but that didn't do anything.  I will try and update it again and see if there is an update I have missed but are there any other things I can try?

Acer :: Aspire 5100 - Battery/charging

Oct 8, 2008

my Aspire 5100 laptop has ben fully-charged but the ePower icon in the system tray says it's as low as 1% charged, and for the past several months has altogether stopped giving me the warning baloon regarding the impending need to charge or else it'll go into hibernation.

i've had this laptop for one year now.

just tonight, though, i've realized something else too-- the orange 'battery' light on the front of the laptop is blinking steadily instead of a solid green (fully charged) or solid orange (charging). then i scrutinize the ePower battery icon in the system tray and it says the laptop has 15 of battery power left, and in paretheses "plugged in, not charging". yet i can be on the laptop for hours upon hours in this state, and it never shuts down.

Acer :: Aspire 5622WLMi- Battery Stopped Charging

May 8, 2009

I have a 3 year old Acer Aspire 5622WLMi which has caused me no major hardware or software problems until now. About a week ago the battery stopped charging so it has to be constantly connected to the mains. 2 days ago i switched it on and it managed to boot normally, loading windows xp home edition, everything looked fine, including the desktop, without any error messages, but when i went to move the cursor it wouldn't move, then realising that neither the touchpad mouse, keys, usb ports and cd rom drive were completely non responsive. I tried resetting it a few times, and trying to put it into safe mode on initial boot was unsuccessful as the keys are constantly non responsive. I attempted to used the backup boot disk but this didn't work either as the machine refused to boot from the CD ROM drive and just booted as normal from the hard disk.

Acer Aspire 5830TG :: Battery 0% Available (plugged In / Not Charging)

Feb 1, 2015

There is a tiny chance that this slight variation will work. Remove the battery and power cord, and hold the power button down for sixty seconds. Without turning it back on, re-install the battery and power cord and turn it on. If this doesn't work, then it is either a battery failure or a charger failure.

Acer :: Aspire M5-481T-6488 - Does Not Recognize AC Is Plugged In / Battery Not Charging

Nov 15, 2014

Aspire M5-481T-6488 - Does not recognize AC is plugged in. Does not charge battery.
 
Laptop is about 2 yrs old.  Running on the origninal Windows 8 that came with it.  Had the same issue when it was first bought.  Sent it in to Acer.  Came back with no report/ details.  Worked okay. Until recently.
 
Noticed that orange light comes on when it feels like charging and stops charging at 35%.  Charging is a hit and miss thing, mostly miss.
 
Tried:

Sticking a pin in the "battery reset" hole on the back

Uninstalling the "Microsoft API" battery

Removing battery to see if it'll work without it (it has an internal battery)

Acer :: Netbook Slow When On Battery

Jan 7, 2009

I have two Acer netbooks and they both run much slower when running on battery, particularly when browsing the internet. I've changed the power settings to "Always On" and "Home/Office" and it helps, but it's still not as good as when plugged in. Does anyone have any suggestions on anything else I can do? Also, does "Always On" or "Home/Office" provide faster performance when on battery power?

Acer Aspire One ZG8 :: Netbook Won't Load XP

Dec 14, 2014

5 years ago I purchased an Acer One ZG8 Netbook.  I have gotten alot of use although now I am facing a crash with Windows XP not loading.  I wanted to do a factory reset and see if there is any hope to keep this older Acer as a back up netbook.  After powering up the Acer One,,,Windows XP will not load.  I am faced with a black screen offering options:

1.Safe Mode
2. Safe Mode with Networking
3. Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Or Last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked). Lastly, Start Windows Normally

Finally, it prompts me to use the down arrow keys to choose with a 30 second countdown ticker.

I HAVE tried all the options for weeks and weeks.  Just as Window XP loads a blue screen with word flash so quickly I can not possibly read it.  I am very very close to letting this older version Acer meet its maker --- although through my ignorance I have realized just maybe I could do some sort of factory reset.

Acer Aspire One AOD257 :: How To Use External Projector With Netbook

Jan 12, 2015

I can't get the display configured to support using my TV as an external monitor. 
 
There is an option under Control Panel -> Appearance to "Connect to a Projector".  That brings up a display "Computer Only", "Duplicate" or "Projector Only".  If I select Duplicate I see "1|2 Multiple Monitors" in my Screen Resolution selection.  But if I hit Identify it shows "1|2" both on my netbook LCD display.
 
After playing with this for a while I now can't even get the built-in display to work when I attache the VGA cable to my TV.  That causes the LCD display to go black.  I've played with toggling the display using the F5 key (also tried 6, though the icon on the F5 key seems to be the one I want).  That doesn't work.
 
There's a different way to display the Display Devices settings - by right-clicking on the desktop area and selecting Graphics Properties.  That brings up a different window which shows Operating Mode and Display Selection.  I've been able to get that to indicate a Multiple Monitor choice under Operating Mode and appear to allow me to choose what to display in the "Primary Device" and the "Secondary Device", but the pull-down choices for both of these only show Notebook.

Dell Inspiron 6400 :: Battery Not Charging But BIOS Shows It Charging Normally

Jun 19, 2012

I have an older Inspiron 6400 (looks like the 1505) that isn't charging the battery. The bios indicates that the battery is charging, and that it is performing normally. There isn't a red flashing battery indicator, but when the laptop is powered on there isn't any "green light" indication of the battery, either. The AC adapter performs normally ( Charger is a PA10 (90watt) and it works fine on my D800, and charges that battery normally).

What I don't understand is why the BIOS indicates the battery is charging and that the battery is performing normally. However, when I have the system up and running there isn't a green battery indicator light on the button strip. Let me clarify that statement. During the initial boot phase of start-up there is the green indicator light on the button strip, but as the OS finishes loading this light goes out and the battery doesn't charge.

Could this be caused by a faulty Bios update, or is it something with the battery charging circuit of the motherboard? The laptop operates normally when using the AC adapter, just no indication of the battery charging when the OS is fully loaded. OS is Windows XP Pro (SP3).

Dell XPS L502x :: When Charging Reaches At 86% It Stops Charging - Orange Light Is Blinking At Battery Icon

Nov 17, 2012

My Laptop is 1 year and 5 months old. There are 2 problems I am facing with my battery:

1) When it is charging, at around 86% level, it stops charging and I see an orange light blinking at the battery icon and it continues to blink unless I turn the power off and allow the battery to discharge for a while.

2) at around 45% to 50% level, the battery level suddenly drops to 7% level and then I have to charge again.

Because of these issues I now use my laptop as a desktop. It is always plugged in and I use the option of "Stop Charging" in the windows power settings. how to solve the problem.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Plugged In Charging But Battery Not Charging

Oct 12, 2010

I have had my Dell Inspiron 1525 for around two years. For the past month, when my power supply is plugged in, the battery does not charge. It has been stuck on 3% and will automatically shut down when unplugged.

I have seen that this is a very common problem, however, when hovering over the battery icon it says: plugged in, CHARGING, where as all of the other posts that I have seen say: plugged in, NOT charging.

I have tried taking the battery out and restarting but this did not work. I also drained my battery and tried to recharge but again, this did not work. My initial thought is that I may need a new battery but I just wanted to check first.

HP/Compaq :: HP Netbook Battery Will Not Charge

Dec 25, 2009

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?
