Acer Switch 10 :: Won't Turn On Or Charge Battery After Changing Power Plan
Nov 20, 2014
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.
I am restoring a donated XPS M1210. It will not turn on with power switch, when plugged in to power adapter, with battery installed. If I unplug power supply and plug it back in, the laptop turns on by itself. I replaced the power switch board, assuming the board was shorted out, but it did not change the situation. I can turn off the computer by pressing and holding the power button until it shuts down.
I have performed a clean install and checked bios but find no settings that could affect this.
Vista's defafault settings for "Power Saver" sets the minimum and maximum processor state as ZERO percent for battery. I don't understand this. If I open performance monitor the processor is shown as 80% max on AC power. If I disconnect the AC power while on "Power Saver" the monitor shows 40% max frequency. Why ZERO percent as default settings, to me that would mean it wouldn't even run.
Certainly for running light stuff it runs a lot cooler, the fan hardly cutting in at all.
My laptop doesnt want to turn on at all while pressing the power switch. When this problem occured, i dont know how the laptop automatically powered on without me touching it. THe second time it turned on, i tried to pressed the power button, the laptop didnt go to sleep mode, which is supposed to happen normally. I tried holding the switch for more than 10 seconds, it didnt powered off. When i hit restart from the charm bar, the laptop shuts down and turns back on without problem.. But then i hit the shutdown, it turned off... But, i cant get it back on, i even tried holding it for a minute. I even took the battery out, tried it with the AC, but no luck..
1. When I plug charger in to my SL510 lights don't turn on. If battery are take out - laptop is impossible to turn on; 2. If I plug same charger to my second (old r60 thinkpad - lights is turning on and all boots normally); 3. I take charge from my second laptop and test on SL510 - lights still not turning on; 4. If I try to boot without charger (on battery) laptop is working fine.
Is it possible that - when my battery be empty I can never turn on my laptop?
I cleaned and reinstalled Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 (don't use HP Recovery). So I don't have the HP Recommended Power Plan. I want to add it into my OS or learn to create a new Power Plan like it.
I have a HP Compaq 2230S business laptop, but this question could be put to any HP laptop. The fan is constantly running when the laptop is plugged into the power outlet, but as soon as I pull the plug to run on battery power the fan powers down and stops. I re-plug the laptop back in and the fan kicks up again.
This is not good as I almost burned myself when I picked up the laptop after an hour sitting on the table on battery power. The hard drive is right beside the processor, so the laptop gets really hot.
Vista x64 Ultimate is what I'm using at the moment and my power scheme calls for 1% minimum and 100% maximum CPU on battery power.
I have a 12'' sony vaio with a 16V power adapter. My battery is not good anymore, it was not even holding for 20Min, but my problem now is that the computer does not turn on without the battery at all. I have to leave it charging for hours, then it will go on, but in the middle of the windows loading process it shuts down and does not show any signs of life until you leave it charging for another hour.The voltage output out of the power supply shows 14.70 ~ 15.20 never gets to 16V. Now, comes the questions...
This particular laptop needs a good battery to " buffer" power and the AC adapter only charges the battery but does not have enough Amps to run the computer without the battery?
Do i have a Bad power adapter that is not even charging the battery properly?
Working on a dell Inspiron b130 laptop. The power is plugged in, and battery is in. The power will not turn on at all, no fan or CPU. The main power light comes on when button is pressed for a moment then goes off. The battery light flashes slowly. The power cord adapter has a light on it and that says its working. I have tried taking the battery out and that does nothing.
I had assumed since its an older laptop that maybe the power was so drained that it needed it to be charged a little to have enough power to turn on. But it's been awhile an nothing yet. Is it trashed? We do have another hard drive around to try would that matter at all?
i have a compaq presario c500 i have a problem that it wont charge and it wont run without the battery ...i know its not the charger and not the battery at fault as i have two of the same laptops and tried both parts from the other laptop with no sucess . is it more likely to be the motherboard or the actual mains plug on the laptop ....when i plug the adapter into the laptop it shows a charge light on front and the battery icon on screen shows as charging but it still dies the only way to get round it is it to charge it in my girlfriends laptop then put the battery back in mine ...is there any setting in the bios that would change how its charged
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.
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?
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.
My battery icon keeps on displaying that my battery is not depleting, which is weird since I've been using my laptop for several hours now and it is still at 100%. When I plug in, it registers that it is plugged in but says fully charged. Not sure if this is a magical always - full battery - or a problem?
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?
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.
Acer 5253 - Will not power on, battery or on AC power. Have tried all the suggested solutions but none have worked. Is it possible to get maintenace instructions (disassembly, where certain items are located, etc)?
I purchased a Dell Venue 11 on 12/24/13 and received it this past Saturday, the 28th. I ordered the $499 version. I was very satisfied with the item and found it comparable to the Windows Surface 2 Pro. I took my time to install all my apps that I needed and to adjust my security settings so that I could log in remotely to my work servers.
Yesterday while I was doing work on my tablet, I noticed my battery was low. So I plugged it in and continued to work. However, the tablet turned off on me about 15 minutes later. I thought maybe it didn't charge as fast as it pulls energy. So I plugged it in to charge while it was off for almost 3 hours. It still would not turn back on. I was using the Dell charger that came with the tablet. I tested the charge with other items that take the mini USB port and it charged them, fine.
In addition to my tablet being a brick, I also ordered the Mobile Keyboard with it. I received an email stating that I would not receive the keyboard until the end of January because it is'in production'. Very bothersome because had I known this, I wouldn't have even bothered purchasing this item from Dell, altogether.
My Dell Inspiron 14z (Reg Model: P35G, Reg Type no: P35G001, won't turn on and won't even charge.
I used it to show a video to my mom then closed the lid (I programmed it so that closing the lid will lead to hibernation). When I tried to open it again after a few hours, it won't turn on. Even though I know it wasn't low in battery, I charged it. I then noticed that the light that was supposed to indicate that it was charging was not turned on. This incident happened a few months back but resolved itself after I let my laptop rest for 2 days.
