Battery Detected, Not Working

Q: Battery Detected, Not Working

My Thinkpad T530 just stopped working on battery power and only powers/stays on when the AC adapter is connected. When it's connected and the battery is in though, the battery is detected and shows 100% charged. The second I unplug the AC adapter, the computer will cut off and it only turns on when the power is connected. Has anyone else experienced or remedied this issue? Thanks.

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.)

Your battery has failed and must be replaced. They're only good for three or four years. Happens to all laptops.

I bought new original Toshiba battery for my M800-107, since my old one has lost a half of its capacity. The problem is, when I plugged this new battery in Win7 says "Battery connected, No charging" and after that "No Battery Is Detected". When I unplug AC, laptop works, but when I plug it in again, still no charging (no existence of the battery). The red battery charging led is blinking, when AC is unplugged, lighting when AC connected. I have tried everything I found on the internet to solve this problem, but nothing worked :-(

I also tried Ubuntu to see if Win is the problem, but the same problem occured.

I have bios v. 5.00.

Don't you know any solution? Maybe - new BIOS if there was any newer?

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 ACPI doesn't detect battery but battery is working

I had a problem similar a while back. Try this
1.Shut down the laptop
2.Take out the ac cord and the battery. Hold down the power for about 10 seconds to remove electric charge in the capacitors.
3.Put the battery back in and reboot.
4.Start windows normally, and See if the battery is recognized.

Hi there I ve been having a problem with my charger for a while now but it wasn t serious until recently A month or two ago my charger went from working completely normally to suddenly not being "no and then is charging battery detected" in/not battery plugged recognised This wasn t a big deal however because by holding the charger a certain way to the left kind of twisted or bringing it underneath the battery plugged in/not charging and then "no battery is detected" laptop it would charge like normally For the past few weeks however a notice has been popping up saying quot The AC power adaptor type can not be determined quot and then that follows up with a message underneath that stating that I should use a dell charger this is the original dell charger we got with the laptop quot This message however didn t matter back then because by twisting the charger a bit it would charge and so the message was irrelevant and would only pop up when the charger was plugged in and not twisted as far as I can remember Over the past couple of days though i ve noticed for my battery sign to sometimes randomly change to an X and when you hover over it it says quot no battery detected quot It will then randomly a second or two or a few minutes later switch to quot plugged in not charging quot and then to quot plugged in charging quot fluctuating randomly and for different intervals of time between these signs This as well wasn t much of a problem as my laptop was still charging at times and therefore I knew it wouldn t run out Now however the quot plugged in charging quot has completely disappeared and it fluctuates between quot plugged in not charging quot and quot battery not detected quot My charge at the moment is on so i m getting worried Ofc when the charger isn t held positioned a certain way it still doest recognise it and therefore works as it normally would without a charger the charge decreasing Do you possible know why this could be happening Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version OS Version Microsoft Windows bit Processor Intel R Core TM i - U CPU GHz Intel Family Model Stepping Processor Count RAM Mb Graphics Card Intel R HD Graphics Family Mb Hard Drives C Total - MB Free - MB Motherboard Dell Inc G Antivirus Kaspersky Internet Security Updated and Enabled nbsp

A:battery plugged in/not charging and then "no battery is detected"

What is the exact model of Dell laptop you have? Look underneath on the label for Model information
For Dells of that time period, you must use a genuine Dell replacement AC adapter or you will get the reduced performance at startup message.... the Dell adapters so I have read, have a chip inside that informs the BIOS of the laptop that they are indeed, genuine Dell adapters.

Read about this issue here- and especially about the little test you can do before your power is all gone- you should do it just once, and I think you will get the "Unknown" message....

Note that there is more than just one thing that can be wrong- the motherboard, the adapter chip, the power jack.... Please do NOT attempt the adapter repair at that site.... The power jacks can be replaced by a good repair shop that does soldering on motherboards.

test yours and if you do need a Dell AC adapter they can still be found but it does take some hunting since a LOT of helpful sales sites claim "Genuine Dell Replacements" but I have tried some of those and they did not work but when a real Dell AC adapter was connected, that BIOS message disappeared.

look on the label of the LAPTOP and see what AC Adapter watt rating ....ex: 65watt or 90w..... yours calls for and purchase the correct model.

I can help you find a genuine Dell if needed but test things first. Hope you can do this before the battery is all gone.

my laptop just recentyl started saying no battery detected while im using battery power. no idea how to fix

A:no battery detected?

Could be a lot of reasons why it's not being detected.

First, what brand and model laptop and battery are you using? Also, when you charge the battery, does it get really hot really fast?

If the battery is heating up too fast, the battery is faulty, and you will probably need to replace it. But the problem could be a faulty sensor, bad connection, faulty connectors, or a faulty motherboard.

dont use vista much but will have a go: start, type device manager, open it up and see if battery is detected there or if you have any yellow question marks, if you do its a driver problem, double click the one with yellow mark and try reinstall.make sure battery is prooperly clicked into place and or terminals are clean , no sticky fizzy drinks for example: try start contrrol panel, in there is options for battery use, make sure settings are for how you want them, also if use laptop a lot battery could be cream crackered

50c isnt hot, so i wouldnt worry, leave it in a car in the summer and it will easily beat that.
Check the pins on the battery as well as the laptop to see if any are bent. one of the pins will be used to measure voltage from the battery to the mobo, if its bent it may cause this issue as its not detecting any voltage.

A:No battery is detected!

Could be the battery has failed, seldom is one given more than a year warranty. A couple other variables would be whether the AC adapter is the proper one or that the charging circuit or socket on the motherboard has a problem.

Hi Ahayaza,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
To resolve this issue start the system connecting ?Power Adapter?. Wait till the system to boot completely and then go to ?Device Manager? then uninstall ?Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery? under battery option.
After uninstalling shutdown the system, remove ?Power Adapter? and then connect the power adapter, let the system boot completely and check if it is charging.
Hope this helps.

Welcome to the Community. I suggest you try reseating ( take out the battery and put it back ) your battery once and restart your computer. You can also try updating your Bios using the below link. Make sure you have the battery and the AC adapter connected to the system when performing this step.
I also suggest you check Dell Quickset on how your Battery is performing. If you do not have Dell Quickset, use the below link to install it.

Also, I would suggest you to run the test on Battery on the system.

My local computer store let my swap the old and defunct battery in my Dell Latitude e6420 for a brand new one, but windows 10 doesn't detect the new battery. When I plug in my charger the battery light on my laptop alternates between flashing amber and a (not flashing) blue light. I have tried my best to troubleshoot this issue, I have tried to hard-rest the computer, I have uninstalled the Microsoft ACPI entries in Device Manager and I have shut the laptop down and removed the battery several times, but nothing has worked so far. I can't update the BIOS because the system doesn't detect the battery and without battery you can't update the BIOS. Is there anything else I can try?

I've installed Windows 7 RC on my old Acer TravelMate 4001 notebook. Installation went fine, all drivers are working, but only one is missing - ACPI driver. In other words, Windows doesn't know, that there's a battery in the computer and that's quite a problem for a notebook. It's problem with drivers, not with the battery. If drivers are fine and battery us dead, there would be an icon in toolbar saying 'battery is dead'. But i got no icon, no advanced power options, no 'time reamining' indicator, nothing.
In windows XP everything was OK, but since I started using Window Vista and Windows 7 - no battery found and one unknown ACPI device in device manager.

I've searched for help many times on internet without any success, I'm asking here, maybe somebody experienced the same problem and found some solution. Thanks any advice

A:No battery detected with Windows 7

Hi Necroman,

If there is an 'Unknown' ACPI device in Device Manager has it got a yellow tag/exclaimation on it? If so try right-click then Update driver software to see if anything gets detected on Windows Update.

Hope this helps

Hi im using a HP elitebook 8440p and the wrong battery is constantly detected. I only have 1 battery for this system but for some reason windows insists that Battery 1 is not present ad Battery 2 is. This leads to the battery not charging for some reason so I have to keep the notebook plugged in all the time. I tried a hard reset unplugging the battery and AC and putting it back in and everything and it worked, for a time. Unfortunatley though that seems to have been a temporary fix. Anything more permanent out there? Thanks

I have a Dell Vostro 3500 and just changed the battery (a non-dell item) and this is shown as not being detected. I have tried using the device manager, uninstalling the MS ACPI Control Method and then scanning for new hardware, then rebooting but this does not solve the problem.

Clearly there is something that only detects Dell originals but there must be a solution to finding alternatives

Anyone any ideas?

Purchased an Aspire V 15 Nitro( VN7-571G-50VG) and as I soon as I started it up it had "No battery is detected" on the battery icon and as soon as the power cord is disconnected it turns off so it can only stay on when its connected. I tried resetting the battery but it didn't work. Any ideas how else to fix this?

A:Aspire V 15 Nitro "No battery is detected"

Hi, First you can try to update your BIOS to the latest version if you don't have the latest one. BIOSAcerUpdate KBC to V1.171.148.8 MB2015/03/20Download But I don't expect it would help. If you just purchased the notebook just bring it back because I don't think that it has anything to to with the software side. It could be that the battery is just not connected (just by mistake they forgot to connect the battery connector) or that the battery is defective. Either way I would bring the notebook back. I don't expect that you can turn on your notebook without the charger plugged in and if this is the case it clearly means that the issue is not software related.

I have a recently purchased ASUS laptop as mentioned in title, and there seems to be issue after issue.

As mentioned in a previous thread, I had problems with my sound card popping a crackling. After updating my BIOS drivers, this fixed the problem.
Now I have a new problem.

Since updating the BIOS drivers, I've noticed that my battery icon shows an 'x' on the battery and says 'no Battery Is Detected' on mouseover. If I turn the computer off, disconnect the AC and try and turn it on again, it wont turn on at all.

I have tried going into Device Manager and uninstalling the two drivers under Battery and then reinstalling them, but this hasn't worked. I have seen solutions online that involve removing the battery and then adding it back, but the laptop I have has a non removable, built in battery.

What other options are available to me?

I took apart my laptop to fix something, and I connected the battery the the naked motherboard to test something, but I put it in backwards.
It was brief, but it caused an issue nonetheless.

I'm almost positive the battery itself is fine as it wasn't connected long enough to get any significant short-circuit damage and it reads fine on the multimeter.

Any idea what to do?

I would suspect a needed Dell driver was not installed. There is a long list of applicable drivers listed on the Dell site. Not sure what you need, that you may have not installed.

Hi All,
I have an older Vostro 2420, my battery finally gave up the ghost, and I purchased a new one. 
The old battery had a problem that it was not detected, whatever, it no longer held a charge, so I bought a new one.
I have the latest version of Windows 10, version 1607, X64. The laptop has been updated with all of the latest Dell drivers. I've uninstalled and installed the battery driver and charger drivers. I've also done a power hard reset.
Good news, is my new battery holds a charge. That is, I can charge it up, and its good for many hours without being plug-in... Great! its a new battery!
Bad news, Windows 10 can't detect the battery. 
I trolled the interweb looking for youtube video's and other hints, done everything. 
My trusty multimeter shows that the connection to the battery works, and has continuity. 
Any ideas?

Hello I recently bought a Yoga 900S and it was working fine for a day or two, but suddenly the battery symbol had an 'x' and it kept saying BATTERY NOT DETECTED. When that happened, my laptop would only stay awake for a few minutes or seconds then shut down. When I put it on charge, the 'x' was still displayed over the battery symbol but it wouldn't shut down, until a few days later when it would shut down even if it was on charge. So I didn't use my laptop for a day or two and then started using it again. For a few days, the problem was gone, but now it's back. I did recently update to Windows 10, but I don't know if that's what's causing the problem. Can someone please tell me what's wrong with my laptop? The problem is really annoying. Thanks

A:Equium A300D-13x - No Battery is detected


Did you have the same battery problems with the old, original battery?

From my experience there are many batteries from 3rd party suppliers but not all meets the standards even if the part number is the same?

But it looks that the battery is detected because the notebook can be powered on using the battery power? also the orange battery indicator show you that the battery would be charged.

However, I would recommend you checking the BIOS version.
From my knowledge BIOS update could help to solve problems with battery.

If it does not help you, I would recommend testing other batteries which you could order directly from an Toshiba ASP in your country? in such case you could be 100% sure that your battery is compatible and would work.

My Satellite Pro C850 was purchased in March 2013. By December 2015 the battery would not hold a charge long enough. In December 2015 I bought a new genuine Toshiba battery from a reputable company Now only 3 months later my laptop shows a red cross over the battery indicator. Unplugging the power lead still allows me to use the laptop but seemingly randomly the laptop hibernates/shuts down without displaying the reason. After this happens I have to plug the power lead in again to restart the laptop, although I can unplug it again later without the laptop dying. For purely personal reasons my power options are set to Never for all choices. All this does not stop me using the laptop, but it can be annoying when the laptop suddenly saves everything and shuts down.

1. If it is a non Dell battery it is quite common that some cheaper alternatives are not detected
2. Go F2 setup on post (think it is F2 on a dell - enter BIOS scroll across to power options look for battery learning function or something similarly worded

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!

A:No Battery Is Detected error on ASUS Laptop

The laptop not being able to turn on from the battery is a hardware issue. There may also be a software issue in Windows, but missing drivers etc, will not stop a laptop from booting up from the battery to the BIOS. You can boot to the BIOS with no OS installed. The battery has likely failed and needs to be replaced, or its fully discharged and not being recharged. It should charge even if the laptop is off, as long as the power pack is plugged in. My ASUS and my ACER laptops will charge the battery when powered off and plugged in. Is this a new or second hand device? If it's new, I'd return it.

I was given a 7-year old Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop to do a clean reinstall of Windows XP.

The battery in it is Dell-branded and appears to be the same one that came in it.

The charger works fine and kept the laptop powered during the entire setup/install/update process.

After I was done, I discovered in the power options and in the taskbar that the battery isn't being detected.

I examined the battery and the contacts and didn't see any damage or corrosion.

I wanted to update the BIOS, but I couldn't because of the "no battery detected" issue.

I realize a 7-year old battery likely no longer holds a charge, but why isn't it being detected?

I've never run into this issue before, so I'm stumped.

I have the exact same laptop and I'm encountering the exact same problem. Have you gotten anywhere? Will flashing the BIOS help? I'm about to return my new battery.

My Inspiron 17R just had a Windows 10 update.  Immediately afterward (by coincidence or ??), the battery would not function.  If I do not have the adapter connected, it is dead.  According to the BIOS, it is not a Dell battery.  Well, yes it is, original to the machine.  Meanwhile, the battery meter shows at 100% and plugged in.
Any ideas?

Ever since the update I can no longer use my computer without the cord plugged in.  the battery is internal so it cannot be removed.  i had a new battery professionally installend but no change.

Hello and welcome to TSF, playful_cyanide!

I snooped around Google and found this link, as it seems useful.

Also, you can use this program to give detailed analysis of your battery for reference.

I noticed you're in Sacramento, that's like right by me, I'm in Paradise.

Hi there,
I have a Dell Inspiron 15R 5521. Since a while now my laptop is given me messages explaining my battery has a fatal error and needs to be replaced. I have been searching for a different solution than simply replacing the battery/adapter and I've seen that a lot of people had to update their BIOS. I currently have BIOS A07. When I try to update using the driver I've gotten from your site this window pops up and tells me I have to plug in my battery and adapter. Both are plugged in but I can't seem to manage to start the update. 
I hope you guys can help me,Dries Vanden Broecke

A:Battery not working

Hi Dries Vanden Broecke,
Download the A14 BIOS here -
Now, for the BIOS update to run, it is required that the battery be connected and battery should contain a minimum charge of 10% and the adapter needs to be detected in BIOS.
Having said this, Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point. Check the battery health in BIOS (if applicable).
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

I replaced the battery of my laptop ( Inspiron 17R SE 7720) with a new one.
But the Old one is 48 Wh and the new is 60wh.
When the laptop has started, this message appears " Warning, this battery is not recommended for this system use. It may only have limited features and non optimized performance. " .
What shall I do ?

After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."
Shockingly none worked that I found.
Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.
A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.
To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)
Worked with an off brand battery also.
Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.
Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.
Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!
