Laptop won't charge when plugged in

Q: Laptop won't charge when plugged in

My Laptop won't charge when plug into the adaptor, the battery icon on the desktop says it's not plugged in but the light next to the computers charging point is shining white. I have managed to get it charging in some positions but I fear this is beacuse the computer's interior chargin point is loose

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.

I have my latop plugged in, but it won't charge. I've tried turning it on, but all I get is a orange light, which I understand is the indication the battery is low. What I don't understand is, if it's plugged in, shouldn't the laptop come on? I have a Dell Latitude D620. Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

My laptop is a Samsung RV510, i purchased it brand new and upgraded the ram to 4GB.

Everything work's fine, apart from when i pull out or plug the charger in, it will re boot itself ?

If it's a fault i will just have to put up with it as the first time it was supposed to be delivered, it went missing for 2 weeks.

Help appreciated, thanks.

My laptop is plugged in, but won't charge.I didn't get any messages, it's like nothing is plugged in. I've tried another charger that works, but it also doesn't work on my laptop.So the problem isn't my charger. I also tried taking out the battery and starting the laptop, but then the powerbutton and capslock light flash, and it won't start.When the battery was out, I pushed the power button for 30 sec. and put the battery back in, but that didn't help either. What can I do?

I have a Inspiron 17R SE-7720.  The battery is no longer charging, even when it is plugged in with the AC adapter that came with the laptop.  The blue light on the plug is on when the adapter is plugged in.  Unfortunately the battery is now completely dead, so I am no longer able to turn the laptop on.  Before the battery died, I checked the BIOS and noted that it was not registering the AC adapter.  Not sure where to go next with this issue.  Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

A:HP 2000 won't turn on/charge when plugged in

Hey Ctfields,  I'm sorry you're running into this issue. If the light is turning solid red/amber and not blinking, that means it is charging the battery.  What happens when you press the Power button? Does the light on it come on at all, blink or remain on? Do you hear any spinning sounds from the fan and/or drives in the computer? Do you see any image on the screen, whether it is just an HP logo or a black screen with a blinking cursor or anything at all? Do you hear Windows' startup sounds? Do you see the Caps/Num lock lights blinking? If so, please let me know how many times it blinks.  I would suggest trying a hard reset, if you haven't already. A hard reset will drain all of the residual electricity out of the unit and give it a clean boot state. This can solve a lot of mysterious no-boot situations. 1. Disconnect the AC Adapter and battery.2. Press and hold the Power button for about 10 seconds, then release.3. Reinsert the battery and AC Adapter.4. Press the Power button to turn the computer on.

Hi,I have a Lenovo Z50-70 running Windows 8.1. The laptop is relatively new, bought in Jan. 2015.Some time ago, the original battery suddenly started to have a problem where it would say 45% available, plugged in, not charging. No matter what fixes I tried (after looking through a lot of articles, posts, comments, etc.), nothing made the battery start charging again. It always stays at 45%. Also the battery light/indicator on the front of the laptop is always blinking white.So I got a new battery, put it in hoping that it would work and charge up to 100%, but the new battery is having exactly the same problem as the original old one! It will only charge up to 45%, then it says plugged in not charging. The battery light is again always blinking white.What do I do? How can this be fixed? What's going on?Appreciate any help. Thank you very much.

A:Lenovo Z50-70 battery plugged in not charging, won't charge no matter what I do

Sounds like it may be either the charger or the charging port at fault here.  However, I have a couple of questions...1. Does the battery charge increase at all if you leave the machine turned off and plugged in, or does it still report 45%?2. Does it power on when only on battery power?3. Was the new battery a new, genuine Lenovo part?There seem to be a lot of people reporting similar issues with this model unfortunately.,156537.0.html

I purchased a used Toshiba Satellite L305-D, it did not come with a power adapter. I purchased a new power adapter but soon learned the battery wasn't very good so I purchased a new battery. I shut the laptop down, put in the new battery and let it charge overnight. In the morning, it showed 100% charged. In an effort to "condition" the battery, I let it run on battery power until it shut down, then plugged it in to recharge. It first charged to 40% when I noticed it was not charging any longer. I unplugged it, plugged it back in and it started recharging again. It stopped again at 62%. I can't get it keep charging to 100%.

The system shows that it's plugged in, but not charging. When I unplug and replug back in the battery charge light will come on for a short time, then go out. Any suggestions?

My cousins laptop had some issues with the os, so I installed windows 7 ultimate 64-Bit, but the issue is when I plug it in it will not charge, the battery LED says it is but the battery icon says it isn't.
Or sometimes it says its plugged in (The icon) for only a while then it says its unplugged, once I re plug it it will back to say its charging and then so on.
It actually says its charging and have done the power button hold, the Microsoft ACAPI thing in the Device Manager and nothing works. I have no clue what this is and if there is something that could help.
Thanks for the help and If you need more details feel free to ask.

A:Laptop Battery Doesn't Charge if Laptop is off

a bios update is often needed when using a different battery than what the laptop was designed to use, and since you bought a generic battery, i highly doubt that Sony will provide support of any kind for it.

Check Ebay for actual Sony brand batteries (not another generic), you can get them on Ebay for 1/2 (or less) the price that you would pay in a store or from Sony

Hey everyone. I have a Gateway p7805u FX and over the last couple months I started having a problem with my laptop being plugged in, but not charging. I noticed the plug into the computer itself seemed a bit worn down and heating up (imo a little too much). Just recently I went and bought a new ac adapter, thinking that might be the problem, but it is not. Now when it's plugged in, it says it's "plugged in but not charging" and I can see the screen flashing, going from "plugged" to "unplugged" mode. It seems that the problem is the computer side, and not the adapter side, I think. Any help or suggestions that do not include sending it to gateway? (or maybe that's the only fix!)

Sounds like your laptop battery is failing. How old is the laptop? Is it under warranty? If so, call HP support to get a replacement.

The power connector piece on the computer seems loose on the inside.... I called HP help and the warranty ran out 2 weeks prior! They said the power connector is attached by a pin to the motherboard and it needs entire motherboard replaced $350.00. Anyone with any experience with this and is it true. Thanks any input appreciated.

A:Cannot charge my laptop

Try removing the battery and see if the comp works OK without it. Modern batteries must be used, so if you haven't been using the laptop with just the battery then it is possible the battery has died.
If it works Ok sans battery then reinsert it and if you get the same symptoms as before you might have to buy a new battery.

I know that there are probably a hundred other posts about this, but I cant seem to find an actual solution to the problem. My laptop was working perfectly fine for about the first year that I owned it, but now it won't charge. I thought the problem may have just been the battery, so I went and got a new one. The new battery that I got still won't charge. I know there's probably a simple solution to this, any information regarding the problem would be a huge help.Thanks.

I have an Acer Aspire 3680 laptop.

Problem is, it won't charge. This just started a bit ago but I want to possibly nip the problem now before it gets worse. I have it running off of the power cord now but as soon as I unplug that it says you have 4% remaining.

I've restarted the computer and all that trying to get it to charge but it just won't.

Any suggestions? I've looked into updating the driver but I am kind of leery about that and don't know where I would find the proper driver.

A:Laptop won't charge


1. How old is this laptop (approximately)?
2. How often do (did) you run it with both battery attached and power-cord plugged into the computer?
3. Which OS are you running on the laptop?

You see, a very common problem with laptops is that people leave the cord attached most of the time, putting unnecessary charge on the battery. Eventually, the battery gets too exhausted to recover itself (the electrons are frozen in place) - which eventually results in symptoms very similar to yours.

As for the OS-question, charging is mainly done by the ACPI-codec IF driver-related at all. There are (many) laptops which rely fully on mechanical solutions for charging the battery. Although some, especially those from Toshiba and HP, rely on ACPI for charging, shutting off, restarting and so on - properly. If you're running Linux, then this might be driver-related. If your running Windows, then this is presumably not driver-related.

Are there any more details beside the questions above?

Hi there,

I recently had my charging port on my laptop fixed because I dropped my computer with it plugged in, and it completely broke. My laptop was able to work when I plugged it in, but slowly the battery completely died. I thought because I had the computer for almost 5 years, the battery was not good anymore, so I bought a new battery. However, now the computer indicates that it is on "AC" power, but it will not charge the battery. I can't use my laptop as a portable computer because now it has to be plugged in all the time. Anyone have any ideas of what might be going on?? Thanks!!

you mean your cable charger for your laptop is working when u insert it to your friend hp laptop and it's charge. if so there is a lost contact for your power adaptor.. check it out if there is leakage...the adaptor leakage can prevent current to flow into the adaptor and thats the case your laptop wont power up.

Some people recommend to keep the ac charger always on ,so that battery charge count remain less,Where as some people says to disconnect the charger after 100% and then use it till 20% or less and then charge it again till 100%.So there is little confusing regarding these matter.

Hi guys!
i recently purchased an used NC4400 laptop for work....

i chose that model because i have several years working with it and is one of the most rock solid laptops i ever have tried...

but this time i think the seller sold me a defective one...

the seller sold me this one without battery and without charger, its ok for the price (70bucks) i already have couple of those batteries around there and some chargers...

when i receive it, i plug it to the ac and after 20 minutes notice the laptop don?t charge the battery, i tried another battery and the same, i decide to try the battery in another nc4400 i have and it charge it fine.... so is not the battery, and is not the power adapter...

i checked the BIOS and it is exactly configured like the others nc4400 i have here.

what is wrong here?

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if I'm putting this in the right place, but I suppose it will work. I have an HP pavillion notebook that's a little over a year old. I was playing a game on it last night when the screen just went to black. It sat there with a black screen for about 10 minutes before I did a hard shut down. I tried to turn it back on about 20 minutes later, and it wouldn't turn on. Assuming it was dead, I plugged it in, but the charging light wouldn't light up. I'm really not sure what's going on, I've read some places it could be the mother board, or the charger needs to be replaced. My warranty conviently ran out in August, and it would be great to know what's wrong with it.

A:Laptop won't turn on or charge

Hi sklassen,


I saw your post regarding the computer not turning on. It could several things that are causing the problem; the motherboard, battery or power cord. I would start with a hard reset, remove both the battery and the power cord. Then hold down the power button for 60 seconds, this will drain any excess power in the unit then start by plugging in the power cord first and try starting up the laptop. Then try it with the battery.


Are the Num and Caps Lock key flashing at all? If so how many times? Do you hear the fans turning on at all? It will be hard to diagnose this issue without the laptop turning on.

I have had this problem for a while now, my laptop hasnt been charging very well if at all, but luckily my mum has the same laptop so I used her charger for a while which seemed to work. But now it won't charge on either and my laptop went completely dead last night.

But today I tried switching the battery from mine and my mums laptop, and that worked fine. My battery charged in her laptop, and her battery worked fine in mine. But when I switch them back, I can no longer charge it.

What could be the problem here?

Funny thing, first it won't see my primary battery (which is probably normal, the dumb thing only held 5 minutes anyway, it most likely died), second it will not charge my select bay battery (which holds 3.5 hours of charge) if the laptop is off, it only charges it when it's on. If I have it plugged in when it's off to try and charge it the Power LED is green and blinking and the Select Bay Battery LED is amber and blinking and no charging happens. I tried removing the primary battery to see if it was causing this and it still did the same thing...anyone know what causes this? It's a Tecra 8100, PIII 750, 512mb ram, Windows 2000 SP4. I checked the manual, it's says nothing about the power light flashing green and nothing about the battery light flashing amber. Thanks for anything guys.

Last night I was using my laptop and out of nowhere my screen went blank but the machine stayed powered on. I rebooted and about 15 mins later the screen went blank again and the power turned off. I tried to turn it back on and it wouldn't respond. The charge indicator light won't respond either when I plug it in. The computer never told me the battery was running low either. I've tried plugging it in a few different outlets. Does this sound like a battery problem or something internal with the computer? The laptop is about 2 years old.

If it sounds like a battery, I'd have no problem buying a new one and trying it. If this sounds like an internal one though I don't want to waste my money on one and would like to put that towards a new one.

A:Laptop shutting down at 50% charge

This happens because your battery is giving incorrect information about its remaining charge to your computer. Don't worry, this is a pretty common thing with batteries that have been in use for a while. Their performance degrades aswell as their capacity. Your battery is the culprit, not your laptop.

Replacing the battery will probably fix your problem.

I have a two year old Acer 5735 laptop (bought new in 2009). When I plug it in, the charge indicator never goes on. The laptop simply runs off the battery. I tried using a different AC adaptor (known to be good). There was no difference.

The DC jack was replaced about a year ago. Thinking that the problem may be the jack, I disassembled the laptop, and tested the resistance between the DC jack terminals and the connection of both wires to the circuit board. Both connections look good (resistance near 0). I also replaced the battery, on the outside chance that it could be the battery.

So I ruled out the battery, and AC adaptor, and the DC jack. Any ideas on what to look at next?

It could be the battery charging circuitry on the main board. This would not be a user-serviceable repair, other than to replace the main board. Some systems may have a plug-in module between the main board and the battery contacts.

A:My laptop wont charge!!! =(

It could be the charger, replacements not that expensive (try to stay away from universal adapters, they are often really poor quality)

It could be the DC socket (the hole where you put the charger in) Does it wiggle around a lot when you put the charger in?
has it still got the PIN inside that hole? Does it look damaged?

Try taking the battery out and plugging the charger in - see if that fixes it? It may be a faulty battery causing the issue.

I ve got a laptop that out of the blue stopped taking a charge This is the third fourth time this is happening and since I m not under warranty anymore doubt I ll be able to send it in When I first got the computer a gateway cx s it was broken and gateway refused to replace it a taking Laptop charge not They would only fix it They ended up replacing the entire motherboard Later from this point there were several occasions where it would stop taking a charge I sent my computer in it was sent back and it would work So I don t know the exact details of what happened to it in the past I was on my laptop last night with the charger plugged in and all of a sudden it stopped charging I took Laptop not taking a charge it to someone today and they said the battery was bad since my charger was still putting out a charge Yet from my previous experience w this problem I checked and if I put some pressure on the part that plugged into the laptop it would start charging It isn t a reliable charge So I called gateway I gave him my number and he said that the female port was loose I m assuming this is what was wrong the last few times since he told me that was the problem so quickly confidently So now I m here for a third opinion What do you guys think it is I m NOT going to send it back to gateway Because of the utter piece of crap they ve sold me I ve probably spent the same amount of money in repairs as the computer cost Additionally my warranty is now up so yeah Thanks a ton D nbsp

A:Laptop not taking a charge

From your clues, I deduce you have a bad connection as opposed to bad battery or charger. It is either the plug that is the computer end of the power supply/charger or it is the female connector soldered to the main board. The former is a cheap fix; but, the most likely is the internal female connector.

In my area, this is a 75- to $150 fix--at a competent shop.

So I just got my brand new Acer TravelMate P2 laptop, how long do I need to charge it for the first time? Is there required number of hours it needs to be charged? I mean most phones need to be charged at least 6 hours for the first time, I'm wondering if it's the same for laptops because I really don't want to damage the battery. Please reply ASAP thank you!

I recently bought a new battery for my laptop Inspiron-15 N5010. But the battery stops to charge after about 89% and in the notification i see that it says "89%available(plugged in, not charging)" . What could be the possible reasons?? I set the settings in POWER OPTIONS to default also.
PS: I bought original battery only with original dell seal and packet. But I bought it in Snapdeal online E-commerce site.

Does the system correctly identify the AC adapter (F2 at powerup to check) or does the adapter show "unknown"?
