Dell :: Battery Not Charging
My E1705 battery refuses to charge. I had a bum power adapter which I had replaced. Got the new one today and it still won't charge my battery.

What occurs is that I plug in the power and the battery icon in Win7 indicates it is charging. The charging animation in Win7 continues until your battery is charged. But in my case after about 30sec the animation stops, and show a quarter charge and never fully charges.

This indicates a faulty battery I'm assuming? It wouldn't be the power port would it?

Dell :: 1525 Battery At 92%, Not Charging
I just bought a new Dell 1525 from Future Shop. I currently have ac power plugged in, for the battery it says 92% available but it's not charging? Will it eventually go up to 100%?

Dell :: XPS M1730 Battery Not Charging
I have a two years old XPS M1730. A couple of months ago, the battery stopped charging even when plugged in. The battery light flashes red the whole time.

I have been told this may be a charger issue - do you guys agree? I'm out of warranty, so could do with the cheapest options first

Sony :: SZ Battery Not Charging
We purchased my wife's Sony SZ680NWC back in May 2008. Used it mostly tethered to the wall for 10 months. We then used it on and off with battery until early June 2009 and packed it away.

Yesterday, I turned it on with the battery in and tethered to the wall so I could back up some data.

The battery light was blinking and Windows XP shows that it was charging. It remained at 0% for hours. I turned it off and left it plugged in so the battery could charge. I woke up this morning and found that after 10 hours, the battery light was still blinking. Turning it on, I found it was still at 0%! There's no power to even run for 1 second unplugged!

I've unplugged the battery and power adapter. Held the power button and put the battery and power adapter back in. Still doesn't charge.

I'm stumped. It indicated that it's charging so I assume the charger and battery connectors are ok. Can't imagine how a battery can go south while in 6 months of storage.

The battery is the stock battery I got with the system, a VGP-BPL9 6 cell Sony extended battery.

Not sure if it's the same problem as adamcirillo (without a solution in the end) or this one from danS_GER (though his did not blink to indicate charging status, mine does).

HP/Compaq :: Battery Full: Charging Cut Off
I just recently bought a 12-Cell battery for my DV2730.

My original 6-Cell battery fails to charge anymore so my laptop would not power up just on battery power.

I'd like to know more on how to take better care for my new battery, and so my question is; does HP laptop, cuts off charging when battery is already full? Because i noticed that the "charge/lightning LED" does not stay ON anymore when battery is full. Is this a correct indicator? Or should i remove my battery when running on external power?

HP/Compaq :: Battery Not Charging While Plugged In
i have my computer (win 7) set to high performance. I also keep it plugged it but it hasnt been charging my battery, its down to 35%. Does it have some sort of a cycle function where it waits until the battery is drained and then charges it back up? I dont want it to do this because when i need to use it on the go i would like a full battery.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Plugged In, Not Charging
I've got an HP Compaq nw8240 and when I move the mouse over the battery icon it says Plugged In, Not Charging. It only shows a 40% charge too, and if I unplug the AC adapter the battery will drain and then recharge back to 40% again.

I'm running the latest version of Windows 7 also.

I've also tried updating the BIOS but when I download the file from HP's support site it and run it all it does is restart my computer and nothing changes.

Acer :: Aspire 5100 - Battery/charging
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.

HP/Compaq :: Battery Not Charging --HP Pavilion Dv5000
Battery will no longer take a charge. I can use a different adaptor and I have the same problem. I can take the battery out and re-charge it in my Presario v5000 without any problem using same power brick. ergo no battery or power brick problems.

HP will only run on battery power. When power is plugged in green lite flashes and battery icon says it is charging, but it is not.

It will not run on AC.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV6-1160en Charging/Battery
I bought this HP Pavilion DV6-1160en laptop about 4 months ago and it was working wonderfully until recently. The problems started a few weeks back when I was playing NBA 2k9 and the screen started going dim and back to fully lit and back to dim every 20-30 seconds...

I rebooted as I expected it to keep doing that even with the game off.. and when it came back on it worked just fine. There are no problems with it until I start playing a game (any game, not just nba).

When playing I kept an eye on the light next to the charger connector and that was blinking along with the screen... so when I got annoyed I just changed the battery settings to keep the screen fully lit while on battery.. until a few days back the laptop went to hybernate in the middle of me playing a game because the battery died (although the charger was plugged in and the light on). The battery charges to 100%, holds a solid hour and a half, HP battery check rates it at 'good'..

Apple :: Aluminum MBP13 Battery Not Charging
My battery is at roughly 50% charge and I only have 7 cycles through it, yet I get a (Not Charging) message when I plug it in to the wall.

I've tried a few other bricks that other people own, all of which work to charge their MBP13s, but it doesn't work on mine. I even tried booting to Win7 and it still doesn't charge.

I tried shutting down then holding the power button for a long time, but didn't work.

I tried shutting down then holding shift-control-alt and hitting the power button once, then waiting 5 seconds before turning it on and that didn't work either.

Dell :: Inspiron 5100 Intermittently Stops Charging Battery...
I know about the DC Jack problem the 5150 has and I don't think this has that it works great with the AC adapter plugged in.

I have already tryed another battery and same results. I ordered a new AC adapter and I am (albeit impatiently) waiting for the arrival. So in the meanwhile I thought I'd ask here if anyone has any ideas (And if the AC adapter doesn't work)????

I have already done a search and the only relevant item I found was something about the LVC14A chip issue and was wondering if it could be that?

Acer :: Aspire 5622WLMi- Battery Stopped Charging
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.

Apple :: Unibody Macbook Battery And Charging Time
Two questions:

1) Is it normal for the battery to take several hours, i.e. 4+, to fully charge after being mostly depleted? For example, my battery says it's like 95% charged, yet has 40 minutes to go.

2) Is it normal for the battery time-left indicator to jump all over? When I run it on battery, the amount of time remaining constantly changes. It goes from 5 hours to 3 hours to 4 hours, etc, etc.

The first time I ever used the computer when I got it in December I charged it up fully, kept it plugged in for several hours, then let it completely die out overnight and fully charged it again.

I am now wondering what the optimal driver(s) are for my SLI config of 8800GTX.
My other question is how do I uninstall the previous drivers in a correct matter?

Dell :: M1210 Motherboard Trouble
Has been soo long since I post anything on this great forum! I appreciate everyone's time here, and thank you all for taking some time to help me diagnose this problem. Anyways here is the problem:
I bought a "broken" Dell M1210 from ebay. The cosmetics of the laptop looks very good: no dents, few scratch marks, and almost no blemishes. It did not came with a hard drive, only an AC adapter.
Currently, I am trying to transfer ownership to me and will be trying to buy warranty for my m1210 once the transfer is complete. My m1210 is a little more then 1 month out of warranty coverage period.
I have completely disassemble the laptop and examine the motherboard, it looks and smells new. Internally, everything is very, very clean. The motherboard model of mine is HN110, the one that has the geforce 7400gs in it.
However, the batter is bad because it holds no power. I have tried on my friend's m1210 and checked it through Dell utilities and it gave a thumbs down.
I cannot confirm if the LCD, speaker, sound card, processor, system fan, heatsink, and camera are fine, or not.
I am able to confirm the ram, wireless card, and the CD drive are perfectly functional. I have yet to test those under performance conditions.
The main problems is:
I am unable to turn on the laptop.
I have tried 5 different adapters: 2 Dell m1210, 1 E1705, 1 E1505, and 1 Targus universal adapter. All of them do not work on the laptop.
When I plugged a Dell adapter into my m1210, the AC adapter shuts off. The green light on the Dell AC Adapter shuts off.
I tried my friend's charged battery to power up my laptop;however, my m1210 still will not power on.
I have not find a way to test the circuit board on my m1210 and my friend is very, very wary of me opening up their laptop. So anything that involves me trying different parts on his laptop will be almost impossible for me to ask for, he is a noob.

Dell :: WiFi Trouble (1515)
I've got a problem with a brand new SXPS 1340, and I can't figure out if the trouble is in the hardware or the software...

On Vista, the wireless keeps dropping out and loosing connection... or fails to establish connection. This laptop is the only computer in my network that's affected; all other systems run fine (including a really OLD Dell laptop with an equally old external MS WiFi card... oh, the irony!).

Also... you know how when you search for WiFi networks it takes a while? Well, when it starts to go haywire, it seems to search for networks instantly, as if the card were off.

But what makes me think this is a software issue, is the fact that when I installed Windows 7, the WiFi worked flawlessly (and seemed to have better signal strength) with the built in drivers... and went haywire AFTER I had installed the drivers from Dell's site. (I'm in the process of confirming this right now; setting up W7 again and I'm going to run a "ping router /t" for a while.* )

Dell :: Having Trouble With Display On External Monitor
I was getting frustrated with my external monitor because the screen color was turning dark purplish at times, so I went into Device Manager and deleted both default monitor entries instead of just one under Monitors in hopes that it would've gotten rid of the purple haze so to speak.

I tried unhooking the monitor and unplugging everything before I deleted the default monitor entries in Device Manager, but it didn't get rid of the purple screen.

I have a fairly old notebook Dell Inspiron 4000 with WinMe installed and the display is no longer working assumed due to a bad or broken LCD, which is why I'm using the external monitor.

The external monitor has been working fine for months until it started turning purple on me when it was being used with the notebook. When the monitor is hooked up with my desktop, the screen color is just fine.

The notebook has got a lot of storage on it. During the boot process on the notebook, the external monitor lights up at one point (no longer purplish), but goes blank/dark after a few seconds and says it no longer is getting a signal from the notebook

HP/Compaq :: Graphics Trouble With Pavilion Dv9548us
this evening she shutdown out of the blue. i figured it was odd and turned it back on and what a surprise i got.

grey, red, blue and white pinstripe vertical lines across the entire screen. i watched it for a time and it took a few seconds but i noticed that in the lower right hand corner it was more faded then the rest of the screen.

then the fade began to grow the grow before it encompassed the entire screen. the lines were still there but the screen was much lighter. it almost looked like celluloid was burning through on an old projector.

i shut it off, let it cool for a few minutes and tried it again.

this time the top 4th of the screen had the white lines and below that it was simply black.

she's never been dropped. never had a spill. so i figured id do some searching and this does not seem to be a common problem.................

Dell :: SXPS 16 Not Fully Charging When Turned Off
My SPXS 16 will not charge to 100% unless I have it turned on.

When it's turned off and charging, the lights on the hinge of the screen will go off, meaning it's fully charged, but it's only charged to about 90% when I turn it on.

I'm assuming this is happening because the battery is not calibrated with the BIOS correctly..
