The battery on my HP Pavillion Laptop will not charge and is likely dead. I have gone through all of the troubleshooting steps including: (1) uninstalling and reinstalling the batterty driver, (2) reverting back to a previous restore point and(3) reinstalling Windows 10. None of these steps have work so I concluded that the battery is dead. My product is still under warranty but after an hour on this site, I still cannot determine how to get my battery replaced. Please advise me on where I can request a replacement battery.
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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A year ago this month, June 2015, I PURCHASED a M3800. I emphasize "purchase" as the laptop wasn't shipped until July 20th. I have had recurring problems with start up from the get go - Sometimes it would start up, sometimes not. Often times, removing any USB attachments and/or holding down the power button for 10 seconds resolved it. While it was on, it worked like a champ. LOVED IT! By Dec 2015 it died. Contacted Dell support, shipped the M3800 back and within 10 days, received my M3800 with a replacement motherboard. Well, it's now June 21st, 11 days past my warranty and guess what? DEAD ... Well, not entirely, the power button LED lights up momentarily when I press it. I've tried multiple solutions, including removing the battery to eliminate static electricity, and still nothing. Any ideas would be seriously appreciated. Thanks heaps!

my battery recently reported permanent failure, it was under warranty so I contacted Dell support to request a replacement. I've provided all the necessary information and had also ran some diagnostics, the person I was in contact with was happy with all the information provided and informed me that they'll send me a replacement.
Few days later he messaged me the below. I'm not quite sure why they need my whole laptop for this, I'm not really happy to have it collected and kept by them for what I can imagine will be several days if not weeks. Is this a normal course of action for faulty battery?
"I forgot to tell you that the warranty on the system is Collect and Return, which means we have to collect that system and have that fully diagnosed and checked through our repair team. "
It depends on the system you have. If the battery isn't user-removeable (i.e., it's inside the system rather than easily removed by sliding a latch externally),it's not a user repair and you will need to return the system to the depot for service.http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19974885
The computer kept giving an error message that something was wrong whenever I tried to wake it up from sleep.I did a restart and a reset with the same results.However, if I remove the battery pack and run on the power supply it operates normally.I do not understand how the battery can affect it this way when, on battery power, the computer came alive enough to give the error message in the first place.

Howdy, Is it possible to get HP to fix a broken laptop (spillage has broken the keyboard) out of the laptops warranty? Failing that, are there any repair shops licensed/recommended by HP in the UK? Thanks
Is the damage confined to the keyboard? That is not expensive or difficult and just about any computer shop should be able to handle it and it is even possible in many cases to do it yourself. Please let us know if you want to try replacement. If not the best way to go about it is to procure the part and take it and the laptop to a local shop. Where are you located in the UK? See pages 74-77 of the Manual here: Service Manual https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuovxquGRFk The video is also useful. Removal of the keyboard part stops at about 7:50.

I know that a battery not holding a charge can sometimes be a motherboard problem, I don't want to spend the extra $50 on a new battery if it is the motherboard. Is there any way to decipher which one is the culprit.
Batteries are consumables... They should always be changed first if a charging problem appears
On 5/23 I sent my under-warranty T540p to repair a failing screen. It was received by the depot on 5/24. Almost two weeks later, support still has no ETA on when it will be repaired, and the repair status has been stuck on "Hold for customer information" since Friday 5/27. When I first called, I was told this would be a quick repair. Unless I can get this back soon, I'm going to be forced to by a new laptop (needless to say, it most certainly will not be a Lenovo).

Hello. About a month ago I had my Y70-70t repaired under warranty for flickering/black screen problems. The service centre replaced the screen assembly and it was fine for a couple days the few times I used it until the same issue resurfaced. I took it back and they refused to accept it without me paying a fee for them to diagnose the problem. This was the day the original factory warranty expired, which perplexed me as the repair they made that should have fixed the same issue not even a month prior did not fix the problem. What is the warranty period on repairs? Its pretty annoying the service centre won't accept it back without a charge even tho the repairs they made failed to correct the issue.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Warranty-repair-failed/td-p/3475657

Who has ever sent their computers in for a repair when it's under warranty to the manufacturer's repair center?
I am having to send mine, because I can't get the shutdown and sleep problem resolved.
Acer says its a hardware problem.
I bought an Acer Aspire T310 desktop machine (the first time I'd purchased an Acer product) in early 2006, which had a faulty DVD/CD burner. I contacted the repair centre and they assured me that if i sent it in they'd replace the drive.
The service centre was (and is) about 80km away, and it so happened that I'd be in that vicinity on business in a few days, so I arranged to drop it off then. I did so, and then went off to conduct other business.
When I returned several hours later, it was ready, with a new drive fitted, at no cost due to the warranty.
Obviously in my case I virtually eliminated any chance of damage-in-transit, but I certainly can't complain about the service I received from Acer.
Interestingly, having owned seven Acers over the years (I currently own three - one desktop and two laptops) that was the only time I've had an issue of any kind, with any of them.
Needless to say, my next machine will probably also be an Acer.
I purchased a new Spectre X360 and the 3 year accidental damage warranty. It claims 3 day turn-around in-home repair. I tried to use the warranty for a cracked screen and I am told there is a 2 month delay for the part to be sent to me. How do I fix this?

I have a faulty 5 month old XPS 13 9350, the laptop is 5 months into a 2 year warranty, the first year is with Dell, the second year is with John Lewis, who we bought it through - we think either the battery has failed, or the motherboard. The laptop is obviously still under warranty, If I open the sealed unit to test the battery, and to backup my hard drive will my warranty be voided if I then take it to John Lewis for repair?
I have spoken to John Lewis and they say that if we take it into them, they will send off to Dell for repair and that, due to the Data Protection Act, whatever the problem is with the laptop they will wipe my hard drive??????
Hello! On most models of computers that Dell sells, they allow you to add or remove parts to suit your needs as long as you do not damage them. You can find the service manual for your laptop here. As for what John Lewis' policies are I'm not sure as I've never heard of them. Dell will do testing on the battery and motherboard as well as other components based on your issues when they receive the laptop.
As for data, its always a good idea to back up your hard drive. There are generic steps that companies take when diagnosing computers and other devices and sometimes that requires reloading the OS and other software components to have a 'clean slate', as such they would wipe your hard drive.

Am more concerned about the Vista setup and other aspects such as Windows Mail. Contacts, Windows Calendar, etc.
Will I have to reinstall all my programs and the like?

I'm trying to find detailed instructions about how to replace the LCD screen on my Toshiba Satellite L305-S5933. Can anyone help me out?
I need to replace the back cover of my Dell Vostro 3460. I have purchased a replacement cover, but I cannot find instructions to do the replacement. I have found instructions for replacing other Vostros (such as the 2412. But not the 3460.) Help and advice needed.
I purchased the Y40 in Sept, 2014. The battery died June, 2015 and was replaced (after a very long wait for a replacement in late August, 2015. Here it is April, 2016 and the battery is dead yet again! I would think a battery would last longer than 8 to 9 months. I have tried contacting Lenovo customer service for a replacement and have had no response. Has anyone else had this issue?https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Y40-battery-dead-again/td-p/3314834
How do you know if yor lap tp battery is dead or not being charged?
What kind of laptop is it?
I have a IBM 600e notebook, with a lithium ion battery. Lately the battery has been dying very quickly, usually within 3 minutes and when I go to charge the battery, it charges very quickly,and says it's full. Is the battery itself dead, or is there some way to bring it back to life? Thanks for your help!
Any help on how to locate and replace battery in Dell Dimension 4600 Dektop Computer
I bought this Y40 around a year and a half ago. Within a year (around 9 months I think), the battery got weak, and wouldn't last more than a half hour. Its been another 9 months, and yes, IT IS DEAD AGAIN. I'm a programmer and enthusiast, I know how to treat a lithium-ion battery. This time, my warranty is up, but my battery should LAST MORE THAN A FEW MONTHS. I refuse to pay $200 for one, and I can't figure out how to contact Lenovo; they make it impossible to actually contact anyone. EDIT: Also, this happened after installing lenovo energy manager and updating some drivershttps://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Y40-70-battery-dead-AGAIN/td-p/3318454

Welcome to the Forum!
Leaving your laptop plugged in the entire time will dramatically decrease your battery life., and so it isn't the best thing to do..
I had to get a new hard drive and when I got the laptop back I find that my new battery now dies out after 20 mins. Any good reason for this?

toshiba may have a utility for calibrating the battery
I have an ASUS Eee pc 904hd - it just doesn't power up at all - the lights on the charger light up - but there is no power to the laptop.
1.Should this run on mains alone ?(thus indicating a dc jack problem)
2.Or is it more likley to be the battery ?
Any ideas how I can test - or if there is a guide to replacing DC jacks ?
When I was in RS I use take the multi-meter and test the AC/DC adapter to if it was reading the correctly. The jack should be soldered in the motherboard. I know my ASUS Eee PC has tiny slot of the power. Got to handle it gentle. You could fix the issue but replacing the motherboard. I
Look at these pictures of your unit inside of it. Everything is on the MOBO soldered.
Hi everyone nbsp Just wanted to report a problem I've been having with my Thinkpad Yoga core i U GB RAM - EMCTO WW nbsp After only days of light use and a BIOS update to v I found that the laptop would only start when connected to the charger In Windows the battery gauge would show not charging permanently Importantly the system does not seem to recognize that the charger is connected and thinks it is on battery If I pull dead? 460 - Thinkpad battery the charger the laptop dies instantly Also when I plug it back in the charge indicator light flashes orange a couple of times for ca half a second and then stays off even when the laptop is on nbsp First I suspected a software fault and tried a lot of different permutations of uninstalling re-installing and disabling the battery driver in the system manager as well as the different Lenovo-branded system programs The Lenovo Solutions app does always seem to display the same information about the battery importantly with the charge cycle counter unchanged None of it seemed to help nbsp Growing desperate I tried a different power supply no difference I also unscrewed the back plate and unhooked the battery cable While then the system Thinkpad 460 - battery dead? did not recognize the battery anymore everything was back to the old unrecognized state after it was hooked back in I tried resetting the battery as recommended in nbsp this thread but to no avail I tried to downgrade to the BIOS version the one the laptop had been delivered with but it turned Thinkpad 460 - battery dead? out that even when booting from a BIOS-update USB stick the system would think it was on battery and thus refuse to upgrade the BIOS nbsp I think that either the charging circuitry or the battery itself have some issues I suspect a hardware firmware fault now since neither resetting the BIOS nor Windows nor live-booting Linux seem to help All report that the laptop is running on battery with charge but do not recognize that the charger is connected nbsp Is anyone else experiencing the same problems Other battery-related issues are discussed here and here but those might well be different faults nbsp nbsp Any help is appreciated nbsp

Ive got a 450WATT PSU and EP43-DS3 MOBO
i was having networking problems so i then took out the PSU power cable then took the little motherboard battery out. Waited 10 seconds then put it back in... the computer wouldn't load at all.. no fans no leds lighting up NOTHING. So then i disconnect the PSU power cable again and then take the battery out again for 5-6mins. Tried flicking the switches , Put it back and also got nothing like before.. no fan spinning NOTHING
WHATS THE PROBLEM? i didn't touch the motherboard when i was taking out the battery i didnt disconnect any cables except the power supply cable...
i accidentally didnt notice the POWER SW cable was not connected into the motherboard
is this now solved ?
IF not would you click on the button at the top of the post "mark unsolved"
taking the battery out of the motherboard has reset the bios- it may need reconfiguring for that motherboard
i bought a dell E1505 laptop about 1 year and 2 months ago. i used to get good battery life and now my battery lasts about 20 minutes if i get lucky. i know that batteries degrade over time due to the half life, but does it occur that quickly? does not seem right that i have to buy a battery that costs over $100 every year. does anyone else have this problem? are there any solutions to this? thanks
Yes, it happens. It depends on the battery, and whether you cycle it from full to dead often or not. The e1505 is also a budget model that eats battery life. If you want battery life, I would suggest that you get get an ultralight, not a low-end dell. =/
Sometimes freezing the battery will help... but make sure it's in a sealed bag with no moisture if you try it. You don't want to short it.
I currently have an APC UPS as a backup for my VOIP home phone. The UPS's battery is a 7Ah 12volt. I have running off it a typical cable model (not sure of the watt draw), a typical wireless router (which draws about 5 watts), and a PAP2T phone adapter (which also draws about 5 watts).
Anyone have any idea how to figure out the run time off the UPS (perhaps assuming not a total battery drain so it doesn't kill the battery)?
Hi guys, i need sone help with my battery....
I left my laptop on hibernation mode for 3 moths because i had to travel and i forgot to shut it down...
When I returned and used it again the battery said that is 0% connected and charging, but it isnt charging actually.
I try a few things I saw on youtube like:
Uninstalling the baterry drivers and turn it on again.
Unplugging the battery and plug it again.
Freezing the battery for 1 one covered in a plastic bag.
Nothing has worked yet and i dont want to buy a new one because i am sure i can save it .
My laptop is hp-dv6 and I am running windows 7.
I hope you can help me....thanks.
I would imagine that the battery is really dead. The firmware inside it does not like it going that flat.
The only thing I can think of is to keep trying it unplugging and re-plugging and hope to force enough charge to wake up the firmware, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Freezing will actually do it more harm than good - that trick only works for disks where the bearings have different expansion rates.
At first, I must say that I have spent more than one hour on this website but cannot find a service phone number or online chat link! I replaced my battery last November (case No. 8005949736) and my PC has become out of warranty after that. However, the "new" battery dead within less than one year! I could not remember when I found the system message "The battery is weak and needs to be replaced". Is there anyone take care of my case? I need to know how Lenovo gonna do to reply this! I must got a "problem" battery because I have used lenovo laptops for more than 10 years and even the battery of my first laptop is still alive.

So I have 2 audio recording rigs I built, one is maxed the the other I've been recording with for about 6months now. The maxed out rig has an Asus motherboard and the Comos battery is probably dead by now. It wont power on because of this. I need to replace it so badly but what Im wondering is will I lose the memory on it? I definetely assume that the harddrives are not affected by the battery but Im not 100 percent there.
ok i need to know if my battery or ac adapter is dead. When i have the battery in my laptop and plug in the ac adapter the charge light goes on for a second then goes away.
a little more details would be nice. if the only issue is the light then it's no big deal.
One simple way to check if the AC adapter is ok is the run the PC without the battery. same thing goes for battery.. does it hold a charge? how long will it run without the AC adapter plugged in?

THe charger is working properly but wont charge the dead battery, just will run off the AC Power instead the battery. Any Ideas?
I have never had to replace a UPS system before. I was just wondering can a battery actually be replaced or is it just the done thing to go and purchase a new UPS system?
Any replies here will be greatly received.
I've replaced them before. Depending on what you paid for the unit, it may be more cost effective to buy a new one. I took mine into a Batteries Plus type of a place, and they even installed it for me My APC UPS 650 was around $35 I think.
If it's still under warranty, APC will ship you a new unit, and you just put that one back in the box and return it to them. I did that a few years ago as well..not sure what their policy is currently.

Can a dead cmos battery slow pc , because my pc is just 5 month old and it's slow.
3 cpu 2.10ghz
512 mb ati radeon ?
If the internal battery on my desktop pc is dead
could this cause my pc not to start?
And if so, by replacing it will I be able to start my
pc normally or do I have to do something else?
Reason I'm asking is my pc has power but no splash
screen shows up. The light indicator that shows
activity goes on briefly and the dvd light indicator
turns on briefly. But nothing happens, black screen.
The most common MB battery is a CR-2032 Lithium. Usually found at most Drug stores, WalMart, etc. Arround $2. That would be a cheap test to try first.
But also double check all your other power connections, but it could be the PSU failure , also.
Due to my own personal retardation, when I was replacing a fan, I put the power lead on a Fujitsu HDD *backwards*. Yes I somehow managed to force it on backwards. I booted and of course it failed, then after that the machine would not POST with the drive attached.
I plugged it in the correct way, and I noticed the interface card (the circuit board underneath the HDD) got extremely extremely hot on poweron attempt, even though the disk itself didn't power on.
Do any of you know a place I could go to get it repaired, or a way I could repair it myself?
The HDD is a Fujitsu 8.4GB 5400RPM MPD3084AT
Thanks for any help,
its gonna cost you less to get another 8gb drive then to get that one fixed, if thats even possible. I have heard of hard drives being fixed before, but I have never done it or seen it myself. I would recommend searching around on Google for a harddrive repair company.
You may just want to cut your losses and pick up a 20gb drive for around 100 bucks or so..
A SONY Vaio laptop is rarely used away from its docking port, but its battery is dead. Apart from he risk of fire can I continue to use it, even though it will only "run on the battery" for a couple of seconds? (I have no need to use it away from its mains adapters.)
I don't see any reason why you can't run it on mains power forever, although if the battery is known to be no good I would take it out.
I did this on my old Fujitsu Seimens laptop when the battery failed and it ran for ages without a problem, as long as it was plugged in
Inspiron 8200 laptop, XP.
On startup I am getting an error message directly after POST:
Primary HDD not found. Optical drive not found. No bootable device found.
The OS does not load.
The BIOS does not list any primary drive or optical drive. BUT I can run a drive diagnostic from floppy and it says the IDE drive is working fine. After I run the diagnostic the drive will show up in the BIOS for a short time. But the computer still will not boot. I can sometimes boot with the XP setup disk but it stops before I can get to the repair screen.
Does this sound like a dead CMOS battery? I unplugged it overnight. When I plugged it back in this morning the BIOS saw the drives for a very short time but still had the same boot message. Now it doesn't show them anymore.
BTW: I flashed the BIOS to no avail.
I've had it for 4 whole weeks and my XPS13 9350 seemed fine. But now:
- it won't turn on unless it is connected to the main power supply- while plugged it to the main power supply the battery meter is stuck at 37%- if I pull out the power cable while it is turned on it switches off immediately
What is wrong with it ?

hi, my dad has an old compaq armada laptop, M700. all of a sudden, its battery wont charge. it actually drained straight from 70% to empty. its a li-ion battery, and its supposed to have a negligible memory effect. well since the battery cant charge, its pretty much useless to my dad now. not much different from a desktop for him... the computer does detect the battery though. anyone shed any light on this one?
Sounds like a typical laptop battery failure to me. Dell only warranties its laptop batteries for one year so it sounds like you got plenty of use out of yours. Try buying a new battery if you want to use the laptop without the ac adapter. Lots of places to get them on the net.

I have HP Pavillion Laptop xl255. The battery is dead (3 in 4 years) and I have moved on to another laptop. I stil have a bunch of things on the hardrive I would like to retrieve. Is there a way to bypass the battery and just use the power cord? If not who has the best prices on batteries?
There are several posts on this topic, but none seem to address this question.
Can I keep using my laptop, which has been 'nagging'me for quite some time to replace the battery. The laptop is really old and is obviously out of warranty, but I have found it still suits my needs well enough. currently however I cannot get it to run for more than 10 seconds as it seems tot draw its power from the dead battery and not directly from the adapter (which works fine). In all its infinite wisdom the designers decided that the laptop can only run with the battery in the laptop, so taking it out is not an option.
Can I keep using my laptop or do I really have to buy a new battery?
Does anyone know of a workaround?
I thought I had this problem licked, but obviously I don't. I noticed tonight, when the battery was allowed to go completely dead, I plugged the machine into AC - and when it booted up, it did so but not to where I was before. Instead, it just boots up to Windows.
In the Power Options / Critical Battery Action, I have it set for Hibernate (for batter) and in the Low Battery Option, I have Do Nothing. This is where the Default takes me and it worked a couple times, but the last couple times it is not.
Any idea as to what might help me overcome this unhappy snag?
It could be the battery itself is worn or faulty. Usually when it goes into hibernate it saves enough power to keep files in memory. But if you lose power completly it will just shut off.http://www.vistax64.com/general-discussion/275262-battery-goes-dead-system-does-not-boot-up-where-before.html

I've never had a laptop before. How does it normally behave if the battery is dead?
I opened the Sony Viao FX215. Turned it on. Got initial startup screen. Pressed F2 (wanted to check out the BIOS before anything else). Moved right to "Advanced" and down to I/O, then moved to Parallel Port.
At that moment it turned itself off. Using the power button does absolutely nothing. Don't have a charger here so I can't check to see if its the battery.
Is this the way it acts when the battery has gone dead?
The laptop will not charge unless the battery goes completely dead and the laptop turns off. If I plug in the adapter it will then charge. If I remove the adapter it will not charge.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Will-Not-Charge-Unless-Battery-Goes-Completely-Dead/td-p/5789139
i have a Toshiba Equium P200D-139 and for the last year or so the battery seems to be dead (so i think).
the laptop will only work with the charger plugged in and if the charger is pulled out then the laptop shuts off.
in windows it says its plugged in but not charging and the charge level is zero %.
the ac power light is on to say i have it plugged in, but the battery light does not come on.
if i pull the battery out and reinsert it with the laptop plugged in, the battery light stays on for about 2 seconds then goes back out again.
is this just a dead battery because before all this happend the battery use to drain from 100% to 0% in around 2 minutes.

Yes, this looks like the battery needs to be replaced.
My 6 years old battery is dead too.
It charges and indicates that its fully charged but after about 1 min of usage the battery is fully empty?
That?s nothing unusual?
I finally hooked up my new laptop to a router so I could "unplug" it and go wireless. Well I did it all successfully. My computer came up for about 10 minutes then it went off... When I tried to restart it the little light for the battery flashes. It says my battery is 100%. So I don't understand. I thought it it was using power via the router why should the battery power matter? I am very confused. If anyone could explain this to me I'd appreciate it. Meanwhile, I just plugged everything back in and things are working fine. Could my battery be dead (even though it's never run on the battery?)
