Acer Aspire 5570 battery charging problem

Q: Acer Aspire 5570 battery charging problem

I just bought a new battery for my Acer aspire 5570 from ebay. Its only charges for 20 minutes and windows power management detects it as a Unknown battery, and my Acer power management software says the battery is at 0% and does not go into sleep mode anymore.

Is this a battery problem or a software problem ... my old acer battery is at 50% capacity in about a year now and i really hope this problem is solvable or ill be permanently tethered to a outlet ....

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Nephews laptops battery ran low and required charging. When the charger is plugged into the laptop the orange 'charging' light illuminates for approximately 6 seconds then, goes out for a further 6. This repeats continuously whilst the battery remains flat and the machine will not power up.
I have checked the output from the charger which is constant although I have no means, at present , of ascertaining the actual output values.
If there is anyone with any hints or clues I should be most grateful' Thanks.

So the laptop will not turn on at all? Does it act the same if you remove the battery? If not the the adapter may be faulty, the DC jack in the laptop may have broken, or there's a motherboard failure in the laptop.

Testing with a known good and compatible power adapter would be the next step.

How old is the laptop, is it still under warranty?

I shut down my acer aspire 5570 while it was updating, now i turn it on and it either tries to load windows, gets to the "loading windows logo" and stops there for hours then the screen goes blank... Or it will take me to start up repair and says "repairing disk errors this may take over an hour" so i let it repair and after a few hours the screen goes blank... Is there any way i can fix this without losing what was on my laptop?

It would appear that the aspire 5580/5570/3680 are not compatible with Windows 7. That being so some if not most of the hardware will not work.

Wonder if anyone's seen something like this... I just got a new battery for my Acer TravelMate 230, and it seems to be having a wee issue: the battery meter sits at 0% while it's plugged in, until after a couple hours it jumps to 75%, and won't go beyond there. If I unplug the power, it'll run for a good half hour with the meter at 75%, after which it drops to 0% again, although the laptop continues to run for a good hour-and-a-half or more.

The retailer suggested giving it three full charge/discharge cycles... it's on the third charge cycle now, and still sitting at 0% after almost an hour on AC. This doesn't seem right at all. This is the first time I've actually had to buy a new battery for a laptop - is this common?

A:Acer laptop battery charging problem?

I betcha' this is a calibration issue...

I can't find where I read it, just the other day, but I'm sure someone here is familiar with the process.

There's also a possibility that it's a counterfeit battery, even coming from a retailer...

Good Day! For 2 days now, I'm having a problem when it comes to charging my laptop. I'm not sure if the problem is the battery or the ac adaptor, itself. But I think, it's the ac adaptor. Because I have to disconnect and connect again the socket(you can take it off) in my ac adaptor for a couple of times before it start charging continously. I get the same problem everytime I charged my laptop and there is an orange blinking happening when you know it's not yet charging. So I might be correct that the problem is my ac adaptor? How much do you think is the cost of a new ac adaptor?  Thanks!

I have an acer aspire 5920 laptop and have had a problem with the battery not holding a charge from within a few months of purchase. Also, and I'm not sure if this 2nd problem is related, but the machine is unable to keep the time and date - it keeps reverting to a date (and incorrect time) in April 2007 (possibly the date of manufacture). Is there anyone else out there who is having similar problem(s) and if so, any solutions. The technician I took it to was very vague. I'd appreciate some help here

I have an Acer Aspire V5-473P laptop. Originally it was Windows 8 then upgraded to Windows 10. Couple of days ago the hard-drive suddenly died. We put in another hard drive and did a clean installation of windows 10. Now it works fine, except that battery shows as plugged in, not charging. So it can only run with adapter and can't use battery at all. We tried reset the battery (use the reset battery pinhole and disconnect/reconnect battery). Also tried delete the battery's driver. After reboot the driver installed by itself. But neither of these methods work. Any suggestion on how to fix it? Thanks!

I've got a fairly new Acer Aspire V15 (I think I've had it a month). It is no longer charging at all. A few days ago it seemed the charger connection may have been loose - it was charging intermittently - I could wiggle it and find a spot where it would charge. Today it seems that there is no longer a connection when I plug in the charger. I read somewhere to take out the battery to see if the laptop would run solely on the charger, but it doesn't look like the battery can be taken out. Anyone have any recommendations for me?  Thanks!

My laptop is barley two years old, I got it in Fall 2014, and just today when I plugged it in it would not charge. I took it to Best Buy and after 40 mins of looking at it in the back while I wait the guy comes back out and says I should just get a new laptop...this is ridiculous there has to be a way to fix it that doesn't involve spending anther $300. Up until today I have tried taking the best possible care of my laptop, I only plug it in when it needs to be charged so I don't short out the battery and I keep it in a case so the port won't get damaged. I never had any big issues until today...

hey guys, i am really desperate right now and i need some quick help.

a few days ago i ordered a laptop which arrived on friday and then i started to set it up with windows 10 and some software.

i immediately realized that the laptop is not charging.

in the windows taskbar, when i click on the battery logo, it says "0%, not charging"

i know that there is some threshold that the laptop only starts to charge when it's below a set value, normalle ~50%.

but the laptop is not charging at all, it's stuck at 0% and when i plug out the charging cable it turns off.

i also checked the battery with a program to see if it's broken, but the wear value is only at 2%, so that should be fine.

any help is appreciated!

Hi, Every battery in any notebook has an integrated controller which does not allow charging after a specific voltage has been reached  (this is what you see as 100%). If it would not be like this and you will still charge it it would overcharge and eventually heat up and blow up. Most systems have in place the fact that the battery will charge to 100% and then it will not be charged till it will not reach again 95%. So you can see that the battery is at 98% and not charging. In some other notebooks (not acer) there are special settings which allow you how much you should charge the battery (eg maximum charge to be 70%). The point is that lithium batteries will wear even if you use it just plugged in because the optimal storage of a lithium battery is not at 100% charge. Also heat from the computer itself will cause the battery to wear.

hi there,

I have a Acer Aspire E1 570 laptop that I use for college, the laptop is less then 8 months old. For some reason recently it starting going dead at 40% battery charge remaining. I ran a powercfg -energy from the command prompt and it said that my batterys designed charge is 37000 and last full charge untill the battery read it was fully charged is 36526. If some one would happen to know why this is happening that would be great, as i use the laptop on the battery all the time while i'm at school. I was thinking maybe just refresh the PC from the recovery i made using the provided software with the computer. I'm unsure if that would correct the issue. As well as i haven't found anything on google for this issue on my laptop.

Hello, I have an acer aspire v15 v3-574g-70xl. As I use my laptop a lot at home, I would like to use it without battery, just with AC power most of the time, in order to preserve the battery. How would that be possible? The battery is not removable. Thanks.
Best regards,

A:Acer Aspire 5534 battery won't charge

First check that the laptop works on mains power by removing the battery and having the a/c adapter plugged in.

if the laptop works on mains power okay, you need a new battery.

I have an ACER Aspire 3680 laptop. About 1 year ago, I purchased an OEM battery (compatible based on number match) to replace the manufacturer's battery that had stopped charging. I installed the battery, plugged in the AC adapter and turned on the computer. Once fully booted, the battery icon said "Battery not found". The laptop works as long as it's plugged in to the AC adapter, but powers off immediately if the adapter is removed.

I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue or a software issue. My thought is that it might be solved by updating a driver, but it could also be that the hardware that converts the AC to charge the batter is defunct.

I appreciate all suggestions!

I am looking for a replacement battery for my ACER Aspire 3634WLMi laptop and have noticed one available in Australia which is listed as a replacement for the Aspire 3630 and wondered if anyone could advise if this would be a suitable replacement for me.

Part number for the existing battery is:
Sanyo 4UR18650Y-QC219 Rating 14.8v at 2000mAh.

The replacement however is quoted at 11.10V at 6600mAh.

Anyone have any idea if the voltage difference will cause any problems?

Clearly something wrong with the battery on my Acer Aspire 7740 laptop. Preloaded with Windows 7, 64-bit o.s. [would love to get rid of that]. Battery, which is always fully powered, allows only 1 1/2 to 2 hrs use off power. Transformer is functioning, connection to laptop is good. I have a lousy battery, right? This product is under warranty, was purchased about 4 months ago.
Lots of problems. Have attempted to work with Acer support, but the communication is not only difficult, but virtually useless. Most of the time they can't understand the problem.

You don't need to take out the battery as there's a built in mechanism to turn off charging once the battery fully charged, if you insist on removing the battery, you need to take off the back cover and removing the battery similar to the model in the link below.

Yup, that's it. So the battery is internal, but I'd like to go over a power reset just to make sure.
It will be a bit tricky, but hit the battery pin hole reset with a paperclip or something similiar. You should feel a pretty definitive recession when you push on it. If you can, hold the power button for 10-30 seconds and then try.
If that fails, I'd recommend contacting your local service team as I can't think of any other troubelshooting and I suspect that the battery has failed.

A:Sound wont work on Acer 5570

Hi BabyShamu

This should be an easy task for System Restore to fix, and since Windows Updates appear so often, you should have a fairly recent restore point that will do. You can simply type System Restore into the Vista Search box at the bottom of the Vista Start menu (if your Acer is running Win7 the instructions are the same). And follow the instructions that appear. Choose a restore point from before the sound started misbehaving.

Alternatively, you can visit the Acer support website for your model, & reinstall your sound driver. They'll have an exact-match driver for your model.

Best of luck

Hi Battery charging problem: in, Plugged not there I have a Samsung NP uc that seems to have a dead battery The machine is about years old or thereabouts Just want to see if anybody has any tips for me before directly trying to replace the battery Basically it was working fine and then suddenly I got a message saying quot The battery is not operating under normal condition Replacing Battery problem: Plugged in, not charging the battery pack is highly recommended If the adapter is removed in current state You may lose your data Please save your data immediately The battery pack is consumerable device This pack is not working correctly or life is ended Please stop using the battery or replace it for your safety quot Now naturally that error seem pretty damning However I had battery bar installed and also downloaded batteryinfo tool and it indicates that the battery wear level is only and further the 'rate of charge' under battery bar indicates mw - perhaps leading me to think it is a problem with the charger itself I did some searching and a few suggested solutions were unplug and clean everything which I did to no avail I also uninstalled the batteries under 'device manager - batteries' and scanned for new devices however this did not solve the problem Windows itself doesn't give the 'considering replacing your battery' warning either but just says 'plugged in not charging' stuck at If I unplug the power cord the machine dies completely And I can't start it without the cable in either The battery light itself is ominously flashing orange blue I guess tomorrow I might try find a different charger in case that is the problem and then if that fails I guess I'll have to try a new battery Would anyone have any suggestions prior to that Unfortunately it's not covered under any warranty anymore Thanks in advance

A:Battery problem: Plugged in, not charging

well if it runs with the charger plugged in and dies when unplugged I think it would be the battery causing the issue, seems to be a common issue for all laptops.

I was having problems with unexpected shutdowns and the laptop was operating really slow and sometmes the operating system froze.

I have checked for viruses etc but it appears clean, also have norton installed.

yesterday the battery stopped charging and I can no longer use the laptop as it just will not power up when plugged in.

someone suggested it may be the charging unit, is this the part right where the power cable is plugged in because this part was getting very hot.

The battery worked until it stopped charging up and the battery could be used for about an hour before needing recharging.

going to check the cable on a friends laptop to check if that is the problem and may be able to check the battery.

currently on an old tower to contact you, any help would be great thanks in advance

I used to get this, but re installing ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery would normally solve this problem. Now after i remove ac, the laptop shuts down. I also got a screen once that saying my battery can now store less. When I click on the battery icon, it says plugged in and not charging.

Please help,

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications. At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series. Pent 4..


A:CPU runs at 100% when charging laptop battery, when not charging its fine. HELP!!!
