Question:"Every time i try charging my laptop to 100%, it always stops at 80% and then says "plugged in, not charging." Why does it do this and how do i fix it?"
Answer 1:"The first step which I would recommend is to perform flea power. Remove the power cable and the battery, now hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds and then put the sony vgp-bps30 laptop battery and the adapter back in and start the computer. Check if it works.
Connect the AC adapter to a known good power outlet and check the status of power LED on Sony AC Adaptor without being plugged into the laptop. If there is no light check that the AC power cord is correctly installed.
If the LEDs on the AC adapter is on, check the AC adapter and system power port for any damage.
Ensure a compatible AC adapter is being used.
Check the status of the AC adapter in BIOS. If it is not recognized in the BIOS, may be the system doesn’t know if there is sufficient power available to run the system and charge the Sony VGP-BPS13/S battery. In this case verify that the system has the latest BIOS available.
To go to BIOS, shut down system and once you power on keep tapping F2 key. On the Main screen you will find the present BIOS version. You may update BIOS from manufacturer’s website.
Note: Plug your computer to a good, working UPS before you update the BIOS. If you experience a loss of AC power or a significant voltage sag/spike during the BIOS flash, you will either have to buy a new BIOS chip or buy a new motherboard."
Answer 2:"This issue will occur if the Sony VGP-BPS13/Q Battery Care Function utility, which is disabled by default, has been enabled. This utility limits the amount the battery will be charged. Follow this procedure to disable or reconfigure the Battery Care Function utility settings.
Click the Start button, click All Programs , and then click VAIO Central or VAIO Control Center .
NOTE: If prompted for an administrator password or a User Account Control prompt is displayed, type the appropriate password or click Continue .
In the VAIO Central or VAIO Control Center window, click the List tab.
On the List tab, double click Battery Care Function .
In the Battery Care Function window, to disable the Battery Care Function utility, click to clear the check mark from the box next to Enable Battery Care Function .
To leave the Battery Care Function utility enabled but change the configuration settings, in the Battery Care Function Settings section, click to select the desired setting.
There are three different options in the VGP-BPS13/Q Battery Care Function Settings section:
Battery Care Function - The battery charge level will be about 80% of a fully charged battery, however, this mode prevents battery degradation and is more effective if you usually use the computer with battery power.
Super Battery Care Function - The battery charge level will be about 50% of a fully charged battery, however, this mode prevents vgp-bps24 battery degradation and is more effective if you usually use the computer with the AC adapter.
The settings for Battery Care Function on each replacement sony laptop battery - This selection gives you the ability to customize the battery settings. If this option is selected, the battery charge level can be set to either 100%, 80% or 50% by clicking the down arrow and selecting the desired charge level.
When the Battery Care Function utility is enabled and configured to any setting other than 100%, depending on the selection made, the battery will only charge up to the 80% or 50% charge level.
Once all desired configuration changes have been made, click the OK button.
In the VAIO Central or VAIO Control Center window, click the X in the upper right corner to close the window.
Restart the computer."
Question:"My inspiron 14z battery light is flashing red and the battery icon says that my charger is plugged in but not charging. So when I unplug my laptop it automatically dies. It's been like this for a couple of days and i've tried to just see if it'll go away but nothings happening."
If the issue is occuring even after the BIOS update it might be an issue with the dell AC adapter or the system board where the adapter connects. I would advise you to try another adapter to see if it is charging the battery. Also, check in the BIOS screen if the AC adapter is being recognised.
Please follow the steps below to check the laptop AC adapter in BIOS.
Restart the system and tap F2 key on the Dell logo.
On the system setup screen under the Main tab, look for AC adapter type, it should be listed as 65W.
If this is not listed, you can try loading the BIOS to defaults and check again.
Press F9 key to load defaults and press F10 to save and exit.
Once this is done, please check whether the AC adapter type is listed.
If it is still not listed, then the system is not recognising the AC adapter and certain components need to be replaced.I am adding you as a friend; please accept my friend request and send me a personal message with the system Service Tag so that I can check the system warranty details and help you accordingly.
I would also like you to check the dell inspiron 14z battery health, to make sure the battery is working properly. To check the battery health please follow the steps mentioned below:
Click on the battery icon on the bottom right side
Click on the option 'battery health meter'
Click on Battery Health tab on the top. You will get a message "Your laptop battery is performing normally". If you get any other message, the battery might need a replacement too."

About the Batteries
As is common in the laptop industry, an Asus laptop battery uses lithium-ion, though older models are known to use nickel-cadmium or nickel-metal hydride. However, those looking for an Asus laptop battery replacement should stick with lithium-ion as it allows for smaller, lighter batteries that still have a high power output. For many laptop users, portability is a deciding factor, so the lighter laptop is usually the more preferred laptop.
Unlike the nickel-based batteries, lithium-ion is not prone to the memory effect, which occurs when a replacement laptop battery is not fully discharged and recharged regularly. This ultimately reduces the battery’s lifespan, lowering its overall power capacity.
There’s a reason other brands use Asus components. The sense of quality and efficiency can be seen in all of Asus’ products, including its laptop batteries.
As slim and compact as lithium-ion batteries are, they can last about 8 hours given a single charge. The average lithium-ion battery has a lifetime capacity of about 300-500 charges.
However, with regular use over an extended period of time, a battery’s capacity naturally decreases, leaving you with a less efficient battery. Search through Laptop Battery Depot’s catalog by brand or model number to find the right battery for your Asus machine

Laptop battery Reivew:
"For those that are confused about the physical size of the replacement battery, this is an extended size dell latitude e6220 battery. There is the standard size that is flush with your laptop when inserted and there are the extended sizes that protrude out approximately one inch from the back of your laptop. You will find this same protrusion on any extended size battery you purchase directly from Dell; it will stick out the back a little and that is normal. The standard size is a six cell battery and will give you a shorter run time on a charge. This is a nine cell battery; this is how they get more run time out of the battery... it's bigger ;
You can save yourself some headaches though on having to replace your battery more often than necessary:
- If you generally have your laptop plugged in and the dell e6430 battery is sitting there fully charged all the time, unplug it and let the battery run down a bit (about 40%) and then remove it. Your laptop will function just fine without the laptop battery. When you need to use the battery, put it back in, let it charge up a bit, and use it.
Well, a few months down the road has passed by. First, a little background info so you can relate my usage to what I am saying. I am a full time tech college student, I drive a small fifteen minutes both ways to campus, and I attend class four days out of the week. I have the computer on pretty much the whole time as that is where I store my notes, take my notes, and do some of my homework. I use the the battery for latitude e6220 fairly frequently. With all that use my battery still reads 6.5 hours. Not sure if it is reading right or not, but it does hold a charge through all my classes down to about the 15-20% mark at worst (depending on usage). I do keep the battery on power saver settings while in school; display dimness turned all the way down, display turns off in 3 minutes, goes to sleep in fifteen minutes, and WiFi turned off unless I need to look something up. I do occasionally turn the display brightness up, but turn it back down after. One needs to realize that the more you are demanding out of your laptop it will shorten how long your battery will keep the laptop running; I am pretty much using it for Office 2007. I remove the battery on the weekends as I can run it off the power cord at home."
"I have read here and there on superuser and it looks like I could have:
Faulty recharge circuitry
Faulty asus eee pc 1005ha battery
Faulty asus ac adapter
How can I be sure to change the right part?
The netbook is an Asus Eee PC 1005 and it looks like it has no calibration tool in bios. The asus eee cp 1005ha battery died from a day to another (last week it lasted 5 hours, now 0 seconds). The netbook works if I connect the powerplug and battery but as soon as I disconnect the powerplug it dies: laptop battery won't last a single second.
Battery led is blinking like if it is charging. I've tried 2 different operating systems (windows 7 and ubuntu) and I get the same result: Battery in charge: 0% even charging for many hours. I think (if I'm lucky) that I'll get the change to test a friend's asus power adapter during this week end but I still have no clues.
Asus offered me the chance to repair the netbook under warranty but if they find out that parts are not faulty I'm gonna pay money so I want to be sure that something is really broken and I also have the horror they'll keep the netbook for a month, scratch it, lose data (I'll backup it, I know) and other sad things so if I'm sure to solve buying a new battery I'd happily do it... I just want to be sure not to waste money.
Solution 1: Since all of the parts are from Asus it is Asus hardware that is at fault. In this situation, I wouldn't even test he parts individually. Asus is better equipped to test for what is wrong then you are. Just make sure to do the basic troubleshooting steps given to you by Asus support. They can certify that it is not operator error and help you process the warranty service.
I would always expect that laptop warranty service to take upwards of a month. Always ask the service rep for an expected timetable to replacement/repair. Ask if they can send you a replacement laptop battery once they verify the problem. That is the fastest way to get a system back.
Always backup your data before sending out your system and always delete any personal data on the laptop. While the techs probably don't care what is on there, you never know.
Since the notebook works when plugged in, I would think it is not the asus power adapter.
The adapter is the easiest component to test in isolation. Use a Volt-ohmmeter and see if it is putting out as much DC voltage as it says on the boilerplate.
By using different operating systems, you seem to have reduced the likelihood of faulty software.
Can you swap out your battery with a friend's Asus laptop battery? Or buy a cheap replacement asus eee pc 1005 battery online? That would eliminate "Faulty Battery." An extra Asus UX50V Battery would come in handy and you will probably need to replace it before your HDD goes.
If it's still under warranty, by all means, send it in and let Asus diagnose."
The primary advantage of a laptop is that it allows the user to bring her computer with her wherever she goes, possibly bringing Internet access as well. However, as computers become more compact and faster, one thing seems to stay constant. The computer will more than likely outlast the laptop battery that powers it. If the battery dies, then the computer isn't as useful, because it will need to be plugged in at all times in order to function. The way to solve this is to purchase a new battery for the laptop.
1 Look at the bottom of your laptop and write down the laptop's model number and brand. Then remove the battery from its slot and write down the model number of the battery itself and the type such as lithium-ion or nickel metal hydride. The documents that came with the computer, such as the invoice, warranty card or information document, might provide other useful information such as an order number and/or customer number and proof and time of purchase.
2 Check the website of the company that made your computer. If your dell inspiron 1520 battery died before its time, or is still under warranty, you might be able to get a new battery free direct from the manufacturer. If you can't order it online, locate the company's customer service phone number and call.
3 Go to the store from which you purchased the computer. Tell the store clerk the information about the computer and see if the store sells replacement batteries. If you purchased an extended warranty plan, it might cover a replacement inspiron 1564 battery.
4 Go to a computer service business with the information about your computer. The clerk or technician might be able to locate one for you or have them in stock.
5 Stores that specialize in electronic services or batteries such as Radio Shack, Batteries Plus or Interstate Batteries might have your laptop battery as well. You can also find some battery companies online.
The battery in a laptop, will usually last anywhere from 18 to 36 months. This span is the expected life of a battery with no extra steps taken by the user. But if you take a little extra time and care of your power source, you might be able to extend the life of your laptop battery or at the very least, improve the performance of the day to day life of about battery.
1 If you are not going to use the laptop for several days, take the vostro 1200 battery out of the computer.
2 Keep the laptop and the battery in a comfortable temperature. Exposure to high heat or extreme cold can damage the battery; not to mention the laptop.
3 Once a month, allow the battery to drain completely. Make sure you have saved all your work and leave no programs open while draining the battery.
4 Be sure to have the power adapter plugged into a surge protector, not just a wall outlet.
5 Do not constantly leave the power adapter plugged in. When the adapter is plugged in, the sony vgp-bps21 battery is constantly being charged. This is taxing on the battery's life span.
Condition the battery When you purchase your Dell Inspiron Laptop Batteries, charge the Dell battery to 100 percent, discharge it completely, and then fully charge it to 100 percent again to help the laptop battery computer dell laptop remember exactly how much electrical charge it can hold. From then on, you'll never need to completely discharge the dell vostro 1310 battery again, but always make sure when charging it that you let it reach 100 percent. DeHoop told us to "remember to plug in the dell AC adapter (or dock/port replicator) whenever you get a chance. Most notebooks will recharge quickly." Salinas had another tip for your batteries: "Keep them cool. Exposure to high temperatures can be a dell xps m1530 battery 's worst enemy," he said.
Decrease hard drive activity To minimize the frequency with which your hard disk has to spin up to access data, Salinas recommended defragmenting your hard drive regularly. This optimizes the placement of data on the drive so that it can be found more quickly. You can find the Disk Degfragmenter in the Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools menu. Beyond that, he advised optimizing Windows' paging file, which is an area of the hard drive that serves as virtual memory whenever your RAM is full. To change it, go to the Control Panel and click through System/Advanced/Performance Settings/Advanced/Virtual Memory Change and set both the initial and maximum paging file size to 1.5 times the capacity of the installed memory.
Disable startup items Startup items load into memory every time Windows boots up, which causes other open applications to spill over into virtual memory and adds to the CPU load. You can disable the startup options by opening the associated programs and going to the Options or Preferences menu. You can also remove them from the Start/Programs/Startup folder or by clicking Start/Run, entering C:MSCONFIG, and clicking OK. Select the Startup tab and clear the checkbox beside any unnecessary background items, like qttask (QuickTime).
Don't use any external devices. USB and PC-Cards (aka PC-MCIA) use your dell xps m1330 battery to function, even when you aren't using them! Have an EVDO card or maybe a USB mouse? Remove them if you can. Even a memory card reader in your PC-MCIA slot uses power just by being in there. The effect varies based on the type of device, but even a few minutes here and there (as you'll see) add up significantly.
Power down the display "You can often yield up to ten minutes of dell laptop battery life per level of brightness lowered," said Salinas. DeHoop added that lowering the brightness "may give you as much as an extra hour of runtime." In addition, lowering the screen resolution and color depth decreases the workload on the GPU, thus extending the battery runtime. You can change these by going to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Display and clicking the Settings tab. Disabling extra features like ClearType fonts and fade effects will cut down on the CPU's power consumption. You can find these in the Control Panel under System/Advanced/Performance Settings/Visual Effects.
Single-task, not multi-task. The more you are doing at the same time with your PC, the more memory and CPU usage increases. Both of which directly use up dell inspiron 1525 battery. Close any applications you aren't using, even the small ones. When doing some experimentation, I found it more efficient to run a single application at a time, then close it and open a new one when ready to move on. While your hard drive uses the battery too, if you are doing anything 'productive' you are probably hitting the drive on a regular (even if infrequent) basis anyway.
Turn off unused devices Both of our gurus mentioned disabling unused devices. Many new notebooks provide a hard-wired On/Off switch for the Wi-Fi radio for this reason. Beyond that, you should go to the Control Panel, select System/Hardware/Device Manager, and disable the Ethernet adapter, infrared transceiver, and Bluetooth radio (if your notebook has one). It was designed for mobile devices, but having Bluetooth enabled actually consumes quite a bit of power.
Keep it cool. You can take a page out of the extreme gamer's handbooks, and have your system perform more optimally by keeping it cool. Make sure your air vents (inflow and outflow) aren't blocked by anything, which often occurs by poorly positioning your notebook on your lap (which is known to have some other side-effects too, by the way). Heavy CPU and memory use all contribute to heat as well, hence my comment on multi-tasking above.

According to Dell, the battery in your notebook should last somewhere between 18 to 24 months before you see a drop in its performance. After that, you'll likely notice that the battery's charge won't last as long as before. When this happens, you should consider switching the old battery out for a new one. The process is simple and should only take you a few minutes to complete. Read on to learn how to change a Dell laptop battery.
* 1 Make sure your replacement Dell studio 1535 battery is ready to go by taking it out of its packaging and placing it somewhere nearby.
* 2 Save any open files on which you're working. Since turning the system off isn't required when changing the battery, this is more of a precaution than a necessity.
* 3 Plug your Inspiron AC adapter into a nearby wall socket. Then, connect the end of the adapter cable to your notebook's power socket.
* 4 Turn your notebook over and find the dell xps m1530 battery latch. Slide the latch into the release position and pull out the old battery.
* 5 Install the new Dell battery by simply popping it into place. The alignment of the studio 1535 battery should be easy to figure out, since there's only one side of it that connects to the receptor pins in your notebook's battery bay.
* 6 Make sure the battery latch pops back into the locked position. If it's jammed in the unlocked position, gently wiggle the battery back and forth to pop it back.
* 7 Keep your notebook plugged in to the wall socket in order to charge the new laptop battery. You can check the status of its charge by clicking on the system tray icon shaped like a battery.
Tips & Warnings
* If you don't have access to laptop power adapter, stand your notebook by or shut it down before removing the old battery.
* Don't remove the old battery when it's still in use.
