I have a Dell 1525, bought in April 08, about 3 months ago time started to get out of sync and multiple problems with battery "plugged in not charging."
So today after charging the battery from a friends external battery charger ( friend had same problem) I was updating the BIOS to A16 from A06 and when the laptop was restarting with the bios update I get a message saying "Time of Day Clock Stopped."
My question is if I replace the CMOS battery will this solve the problem? Looking at dell documentation from http://support.dell.com/support/edoc....htm#wp1179839 looks tedious and time consuming but not hard .....
Recently replaced the CMOS battery ourselves after getting the 5 beeps. Put everything back together but a couple of screws were loose and came out. Regardless the computer booted up fine and worked for a week. Yesterday it would not power on, at all. Unscrewed everything, opened it up, found some loose connections and tightened up, then replaced missing screws, seemed that they were tight and not spinning in place. Computer powered on fine. Next day, computer powers on again. Then, after a brief power down, it won't come on. AGAIN. Opened everything back up and saw the hard drive was loose so tightened that up via external screw. Put back together and made sure all connections were tight and re-screwed. Still will not power on.
where my laptop would shutdown randomly and give me a real time clock error. I googled around and found that replacing the cmos battery would fix the problem. I tried it out but still i am getting this problem.
But all the batteries I find online say they are only 11.1v?? So is there a wrong battery in here or are battery sellers just faking buyers out by upping their advertised Wh/Ah by listing a lower than actual voltage?
This is a common practice one sees all the time in RV battery manufacturer ratings - but a 3.7 volt difference is a lot if the system requires 14.8 to operate and it's only getting 11.1.
It certainly isn't a bargain to get "higher Wh/Ah" by starving the system's voltage because then all your getting is sluggish/strained performance for a longer period of time, and if they put out the required voltage than sellers are lying about the actual caqpacity...
I bought a Inspiron 1525 in March 2008. As of today the battery is not charging. I called Dell and they told me that I needed a new battery. After spending nearly $135 for a new battery, I am still having the same issue. Unfortunately my laptop is out of warranty. I have read the various forums on here to find a solution, but still nothing. It seems this is a pretty regular issue with the Inspiron 1525 and other Dell laptops. I've updated the BIOS, I blew into both recepticals, and yes, even tried a new battery.
I just bought a brand new battery for this laptop, it came with 53% battery life and because it has been plugged in it hasn't dropped a percentage but will not charge. it says in the battery info that it's plugged in but not charging.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. It was not booting, seemed like it had some issue with the motherboard. Got it changed. It worked fine for one day, then again the next day it was not booting. Then I tried removing the battery and kept the adapter on and it worked. Now is the battery faulty? Do I have to change that, or could it be some other issue?
My laptop is unable to start up fully. I press the start up power on button and the computer loads the Dell Intel screen and sometimes makes it to the microsoft start up screen. I end up recieving a warning of the battery cannot be identified and this system will be unable to charge this battery. strike F1 to continue, F2 to run the setup utility, Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics.
I have had the laptop and the same battery for almost 5 years. the batery life has been degrading over the last couple years and was to the point of only having 20 minutes of life. I left my laptop in the car for a couple days when it was very cold. I brought the laptop in to back it up onto my external hard drive and notced in the lower right hand corner that the laptop was charging yet their was a red X displaying near the battery. The latop shuts down if i disconnect the power supply.
Inspiron 1525 - Battery will not charge with plug connected. Upgraded to current version Bios with no change in error.. Upgraded from 65W to 90W adaptor with no change in error. Swapped known good battery that had 55% power left and it would not re-charge. Put "suspect" battery that had 0% charged into another machine and it is now charging. My laptop will work on cord power and will work on battery as long as I charge it elsewhere. I suspect that something is wrong with the laptop power interface and it is not allowing the power to transfer to the battery charging function. Is this a software issue (I thought the BIOS upgrade might fix this) or a hardware failure. If it is a hardware failure, can I fix it?
My dell inspiron 1525 wont charge and it only comes on when connected to the charge, the battery says charging normally, then on the home screen it says connected not charging. On the outside the battery flashes back and forth going from blue to Orange.
I've been losing date and time recently. I update files, then take them home on a USB flash drive and they appear to be older than what's at home. Turns out my date and time are maintaining. I have to reset date and time when I boot up now. Pretty sure I need to swap out the CMOS battery (maybe a CR2032?) how to find it once the case is opened?
i've currently got the back off my laptop and can't realy see the CMOS battery or anything to reset it such as jumpers, the closest I can see is a yellow thing under some casing I cant get to, can anyone supply me with some information with how to reset it on this chassis? i'm not going to have to take the front (keyboard etc) off am I?
i am attempting to replace the CMOS battery in my presario; however, i can't seem to find it. i have tried to search for the service manual for this model but could not find it. i looked at the service manual for the C300 series and it indicated that the CMOS was under the memory module, but it isnt in the same place in mine.
Get a blank screen on the first reboot after disabling the secure boot following the procedure in this link: URL....
Laptop is Product- F5Y33UA#ABA
Model - 15-d017d (Thats all the info on the back, no product line eg... pavillion, envy, etc)
Tried a hard reset but no joy. Looking at some other posts on this forum, it seems that the next logical step would be to reset the CMOS. Trouble is I can't find any documentation to do with this laptop anywhere, so am unsure of the procedure.
I have a HP G60-126NR laptop. One day, it was stone cold when I press power button. I discharged the mothboard. I then installed a new CMOS battery . I am using the power adapter to power unit. When I press the power button , I get nothing toally dead, except to show the power connection light. If I remove the CMOS battery, then discharge the motherboard again, then plug in , and the laptop powers up without touching power button, and goes into setup screen to enter time. After entering time , it boots into Windows without issue. Windows SFC scan shows no error. If I shut down, not sleep, the laptop is dead again unless I discharge motherboard and start from square one. Also, I want to say that while Windows is running, if I close the lid to put to sleep, you can see that the screen is still active despite changing "what happens when I close lid". My diagnostics tells me it needs a new motherboard. PS: I did flash the BIOS off of HP Website thinking it would resolve my issue, but it did not ....
I have T140p with bluescreens, I've replaced the harddrive, the voltage regulator and disconnected almost every peripheral. but still - have bluescreens. Is it possible that the Cmos battery is responsible for it
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 battery alert system detected battery capacity to be very low error 601 (internal battery). So I changed the cell to a new CR 2032 battery. Showed the same error. I changed to another new CR2032 battery. The second time I did this I had a new 502 CMOS error along with the 601 error. My clock reverted back to 2009, I lost some of the icons on the lower right, and my wireless internet disappeared.
Now I have two things that need to be fixed.
I turned on, immediately hti ESC, hit system diag. F2, Battery Test: Battery Test Primary FAILED (on the first battery I put in, didn't check on the second)
Control - Device Mgr. - HP - Batteries - Microsoft AC Adapter, Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery, and Microsoft Composit Battery all show that they work.
System CMOS/realtime clock says its working.
Microsoft System Mgmt. - BIOS Driver v. 6.1.7601.17514 from 6/21/2006 says it's the latest version.
I've manually updated my clock. I'll figure out the wireless and icons later I guess. Just need to know what to do about the errors.
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?
All of a sudden the battery is showing 8% and not charging with the power pack plugged in, took a power pack from another
Dell and it showed same not charging, am i correct in figuring it is the battery because if it was the power pack it would probably shut down, which actually it did when i booted up without the battery pack plugged in
