Laptop shuts down when battery reaches 100%??

Q: Laptop shuts down when battery reaches 100%??

Hello All,

Recently I have been having trouble with my laptop (Vizio CN15). For some odd reason, whenever my laptop
reaches 100% charge on the battery, its shuts off the display and basically behaves like the computer has shut down. The power light remains on and i can hear the fans running but any attempts to adjust brightness or put the laptop to sleep fail. This started happening out of nowhere, so I am a little confused as to what this is.

Any help is appreciated! Thank you

If my battery level falls below 30% the notebook will power off. I used the HP Battery Check in the Support Assistant which said that the battery is working properly. I unchecked the box on the battery saver and it still shut down.

Hi, There seems to be a problem with the power management on my T570. I have two batteries, and I think the main one to be used is the battery 2. Sometimes, I'll be working unplugged, and my computer randomly turns off. Not the usual "Windows turning off" sequence, but an immediate blackout with no feedback. When I turn the computer back on, I see that Battery 2 is at 0% and Battery 1 is now in use. It does seem to be a problem in the power management, no? Thank you,Fred

A:My computer turns off immediately when Battery 2 reaches 0%, even if Battery 1 is 100%

Sounds like power management or battery reporting status wrong.  Are you still under warranty? If yes, call support first.  Can you get (borrow) another battery to try?

Hello guys,
I just got home from a LAN with some friends, and when I tried to start up my PC, it just kept shutting off. It was working perfectly fine at the LAN, and at home before I went there, so something must have happened along the way?

Basically I get to the "press F2 to enter bios" stage where I see that the cpu is at 80c or so, and rising very very quickly, once it reaches 100c it just shuts off, and I can hear it buzzing now and then as if it is trying to boot up.

I've opened my PC up, and the fan is spinning as it should, I also dusted it just in case.
Could something be stuck between the fan and the CPU?

Anyways, I'm running Windows Vista.

Any input is greatly appreciated

My laptop is 2 years old and within the last 2 months, low battery notifications have stopped popping up, and the laptop shuts down without warning. Within the last week it has been shutting off after 10-20 minutes after I take the power chord out, and the battery never goes above 98% juice.  There's no error messages, and when I looked at the power options, it was set to turn off on 7%, as it has been since I bought it. I haven't updated anything on the laptop since then (it's a laptop purely for Word documents but occasionally I used it for streaming TV when my TV broke) and nothing else out of the ordinary has been happening to it.  I'm incredibly bad at figuring this sort of stuff out by myself, and Googlling it only gave me more confusion because it seems there could be a number of things wrong.  No troubleshooting seems to have helped or given an adequate reason for it, so I'm at a loss at the moment.

Hi there,
I have a new inspiron 5559 (bought it about two mounths ago) with an AMD R5 335 4GB switchable graphics chip.
After one mounth the fan that started to become really loud and making cracking sounds and also the laptop started to shut down suddenly when gaming.
Because the laptop is still on warranty I sent it to the lab where they replaced the fan and heat sink.
I recived it two days ago and thought this sagga was over but I was wrong.
The fan is not making any noises but the laptop is still shutting down when gaming.
So I want to dig in this issue myself.
Here are some info:
All my drivers are the latest versions.
BIOS: 1.2.5
Radeon: 16.11.2 Crimson
Intel HD graphics: 29.19.15.4454 - it is a dell customized version.
I performed a GPU stress test but it could not complete because the laptop is shutting down.
What I noticed is that when the laptop is using the AMD GPU its temp is starting from 50C even if doing nothing which is not normal I belive. Also the temp is not climbing to 50C it starts from it as soon as the AMD GPU is on which is not logical, because even if it is heating it cant reach 50C in a second.
I belive there can be two factors here:
1.The thermostat is giving wrong indication.
2.The termal paste they applied in the lab is not enoght.
Any advise guys?

Okay been using a Toshiba M40 laptop for a few years without much fuss, just half an hour ago it shut off unexpectedly when i was moving it from the bed to the table. First time it happened. When I turn it back on, it loads up XP, then when my apps are loading up, and my antivirus is doing a startup scan, it shuts off again, happens 3 times in a row. Looked closely at the lights, there are four blue lights (AC/Power/Battery/HDD), and when it shuts down, all four go out, then 2-3 secs later the AC and Battery come back on (usually when laptop is off, the AC and battery lights always stay on unless i unplug the adaptor or turn off power board). Finally got the shutdowns to stop by taking out battery. Ran MobileMeter and my temps are around 55C which shouldn't be overheating.

Now I admit i do keep the battery in at all times, i realize this might shorten the battery life but one time after a power shortage caused me to lose a document that i hadn't saved, i always keep the battery in as backup protection from when the AC power goes out. But these shutdowns i experienced are like my laptop suddenly passes out. I googed and a thread came up and someone said something about voltage and overloading problems, the mobo couldn't draw enough power or something and that causes shutdowns but i had no problems up until now, could a faulty battery be the cause of this problem?

A:Laptop shuts off when battery is in bay

Just found it it may not be the battery after all, i have taken the batery out and used only AC power, ran an antivirus scan (Cpu intensive task) to test, and after a minute or so it shut off again. Seems like it shuts down whenever it tries to draw a lot of power.

Could it be a dying motherboard? It's a Toshiba Satellite M40, fairly old laptop, definitely out of warranty but i'm not sure if i can even replace the mobo as its pretty old now (3-4 yrs old).

A:Laptop shuts down without warning on battery

You need to run a battery status test which you can do by tapping F2 as you power up to get into diagnostic mode. If you are out of warranty and the laptop is over 2 years old the first thing we think of with battery problems is that the battery is old and needs replacing.

Despite having my system set to give me a warning when the battery is low, if I forget to plug in my laptop and the battery gets low, it just shuts down completely. (I don't even have it set to shut down when it's low...it's supposed to hibernate.) As a result, I've lost work several times. Also, when I plug it in and start it up again, it says I still have 24% battery, which is more than even the first alert or action is supposed to kick in at. I've read a bunch of articles about this and checked all of my Windows notifications and battery action settings and they're correct. (The HP thread I was looking at had a link to some kind of Windows 8 utility to check the battery's health, but, since I'm running Windows 7, that won't help.) I know this battery is rather old, but I usually use my laptop plugged in, so it's not worth spending the money to replace the battery, especially since this laptop is so old. (And, no - I don't want to get a new computer at this time, either). Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? It's happened to me several times -- I don't think I ever see a low-battery warning ever, anymore.  (As noted above, I'm running an HP Pavillion DV6 notebook, with Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit. I use it with wi-fi and haven't made any recent software or driver changes, other than the normal Windows updates, etc.)

My Asus X44H often shuts down (immediately) when unplugged, even though the battery monitor (Battery Bar Pro) I use shows that there is maybe 70%plus battery power left. It will run on battery OK for a while, then sometimes I get an audio warning that power is low, but often, as I say, not, the laptop just goes black.

The battery is now getting old, but before I buy a replacement, is this definitely a problem with the battery itself, or could there be some other issue here?

I don't have any problems when using a/c power..

Thanks

A:Laptop shuts down with no warning when on battery

Hello martinlest. I'm Brian. Definitely sounds like a shot battery. Will the laptop power back on after the blackout or does it do nothing? After it goes off, reattach the AC, boot up and see what percent the battery shows. I am having one of my old units do the same and the battery is 2 or 3 percent when I bring the laptop back up on AC. It'll charge to 100% after a couple of hours and repeat the same exact thing 30 minutes after I disconnect the AC.

I have all settings configured for laptop to hibernate if the battery reaches critical level, but laptop just lets it go to absolute zero without any warnings and actions and then abrupt shut down happens, like if you take the power plug out when using a regular PC. This is my power settings:
I have hibernation enabled and hiberfil.sys (5.9GB) is present on my C drive.

A:Laptop shuts down abruptly instead of hibernating at 5% battery?

Is hibernate working correctly when you click it from the Shut Down choices on Start Menu?

Will it time out correctly if you set it to 2 minutes and Sleep to 1 minute to test it in Power Options?

If Hibernate otherwise works correctly I would restore default plan for your chosen plan to see if that helps.

I would also try Balanced Plan which seems to work better as I've never seen problems with it before while we see problems with High Performance.

Hello, For the past couple of weeks I have seem to be running into an issue in which the laptop that I am using would shut down unexpectedly when around 30% battery life and unplugged. This as led to a host of other issues such as work not being saved before it decides to shut down and similar issues. I am not that much of a computer person, so the only thing that I could think of to find out what the problem may be was doing a battery diagnostics check through the HP support assistance, which states that the battery is in working order. I have no idea what is causing such an issue and I am badly looking for a solution, if anybody has had a similar problem and/or knows a solution to this issue please provide some light to the issue. Thank you.

Greetings to everyone.

I recently took an HP zv5000 laptop from a friend to help repair an issue they are having.

A couple months or so ago, the aging 14.8 volt 6.0Ahr HP battery was replaced with a new 14.8v 6.6Ahr unit. About a month afterwards, the unit began shutting down right after turning it on.

On A/C power only w/ no battery, the unit does not power on but instead a faint clicking noise accompanied by a very faint high pitch is heard from the area of the a/c jack/cooling fans. The LEDs blink dimly with this noise.

On battery power only w/ no a/c, the unit turns on long enough to engage both cooling fans, blink the LEDs, then shut down. The faint clicking is not heard.

On battery + a/c power, the unit usually turns on long enough to display the HP logo, activate the usual LEDs, engage fans, and then shut down. Again, the unusual clicking sound is not heard.

From my recent research into the problem I have checked the A/C jack for melted solder points, tried with both the old and new battery (I think both are now discharged - I have no options regarding this), removed the hard drive & tried with no difference, and looked for debris buildup near heatsinks, cooling ducts, and fans. I've also verified the PSU by plugging it into a compaq laptop with similar voltage input specs, it worked.

While the information I have gathered in the last few days seems to indicate the issue is on the mainboard itself at this point, I would still like to d... Read more

You should only use a battery that is specifically designed for a particular model.

Unless you have experience with the workings of such a laptop - each make and model has its own design - it looks to me as if you should send it in to HP for repairs.

welcome to the forum....

its been seen at ours with several makes and as the batteries are new and branded, this narrows down the possibilities to points and the new battery short circuiting the laptop.

power down the machine, unplug the power supply. power the machine back on (battery). once its fully up and running plug the power supply back in....this should reset the power plan software.

now unplug the power supply and see if the machine stays on, which would be and sorted. if when you try to power the laptop back on and it doesn't light up.. then it is either physical damaged, such as a connector or a trigger within the system os.

Dear readers,

as the title states, my laptop randomly shut down twice so far when the battery was inside, but the AC power cable was in the computer. The battery icon bottom left indicated that it was 100% charged, running on AC power on High Performance and when I was in a game it randomly went off. Rebooted quicker than usual, skipping some of the startup processes it usually does when I manually turn it off.

The first time it did this the battery was very hot, even though it was running on AC. This time it is not, it is barely warm.

Another thing to mention is that both times, after being back in desktop, the battery would be "0% available (plugged in, charging)", but it would not charge, it stays at 0% until I remove it and put it back in.

I am having a problem while playing games as well, which we are discussing in another thread here:

Hi,
Some batteries can't take the electricity constantly flowing threw them i suggest you take the battery out when you plug it in the wall and put it in when your on the go. You battery does work still when you unplugg it from the wall right? And im guessing when your battery starts to fail it switches to "power saver" mode instead of "high performance" mode.
so take out the battery and plug it into the wall, store the battery until well until you need it. Hope this helps.
Also could be the result of a faulty battery..How long have you had your laptop?

Before installing/upgrading, my battery was working fine, up to 2 hours of watching a DVD movie on it. Now, while the battery shows as 100% charged, whenever I disconnect the power cord from the laptop, the battery power instantly shows up as 10% charged within seconds and automatically shuts off. I have to replug the power cord onto the laptop in order to have power. Is it possible that the battery went bad overnight? I have been trying to figure this out for a week now and am nervous about taking the laptop to a repair shop, only to charge me $100 just to tell me to buy another $100 battery.

Actually call afew of the shops in your area including battery vendors and ask if they can test the battery for you. Most will not charge you to do this.
Unfortunately with batteries there's no rhyme or reason to their failure, ive seen them go both ways; gradually over time and just plain dead overnite.

My dad has a big problem recently, and is with his HP Pavilion DV6 -1280us.
Its AMD Turion X2 ZM-87 @ 2.4 GHz is Overheating, and reaching mid 80?C temperatures.

I've checked this with Speccy.

Eventually the computer either freezes or Shuts Down (No BSD yet, AFAIK)

Motherboard seems to also get a temperature increase.

The computer was recently cleaned, since it was thought that the vent had been blocking the air flow.

I've tried putting the PC to Power Saver, but nothing.

A:Laptop CPU Overheat. Reaches Beyond 80C

Wait... I've found the CPU usage is around 90%. I've just killed WD Management engine, which was using 64 - 70%.

I thought, that it was need of thermal paste (which I don't know if the guy who the computer was sent to applied it or not).

I'll post back if that was the main problem.
Edit: Seems I've sorted out the problem. It seems that the WD was the main cause of the Processor Overheat.

Now the CPU has dropped to 55?C which is the normal temperature for the laptop.

Anyways, thanks for the help

Good Morning Experts! While watching online videos my laptop will reach 149 degrees and the louder fans kick in. All other times it operates at normal operating temperature. Thank you!

A:Laptop reaches 149 degrees while watching online video

That is likely the most demanding thing you do and maybe the only thing that kicks in the switchable graphics. On big strong laptops like yours it is often necessary after a few years to open it up and clean out around the cooling fan, reseat the processor and apply new thermal compound. 149 degrees fahrenheit is 65 Celsius, which is not excessive. That fan is there to keep it cool and it can be loud but it is normal during gaming or demanding tasks.  #HPEXPERTDAY

This started a few day ago and so far as per now i charge it almost every after 2hours but with 45% still remaining on battery.

A:My dell latitude battery shuts down at 45% of battery power remaining and on plugging it into ac, it starts from that same % so am not sure of what is happening to it.

Hi,
Thank you for writing to us!
Kindly boot the system into BIOS and check the battery health and Ac Adapter.
Also private message the service tag and email address.
Thanks

Hi all,

Laptop is a 5 years old HP Pavilion DM4-2153ca.

Issue started a few months ago when laptop was shutting down at 63% battery, and when I plugged it it would charge until 9x% and then say "plugged in, not charging".
In the meantime I upgraded to Windows 10 and the issue wasn't solved.
I formatted and did a clean install of Windows 10 and still not solved.
HP advised I revert back to Windows 7 as this is the "original" OS for my somewhat old laptop.

So I just re-installed OEM Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 that came with the laptop, and the issue got worse, now it shuts down at 96%.

I also uninstalled and re-installed battery drivers, didn't work.
I tested the battery in the HP UEFI Support environment and it passed, so I can't calibrate it.

At this point I don't know what to do, and I don't think it's a battery related issue because it never fully discharges. The laptop just shuts down before! Help!!

A:Laptop shuts down at 96% battery and "Plugged in, not charging" issue

This is battery issue, nothing relates to windows &or battery drivers, if any.

If you leave the battery plugged in all the time, with the main power on.
Sooner or later, battery will not be able to charge properly, as you encountered now.

The percentage you see may not be real, hence it may force the laptop to shutdown without warning.
There is nothing you can do, unless either get a new battery, or use it as home with main power on.

Hey, I really need help. I'm having problems with my laptop. It's a dell inspiron 7559 and was bought around January. Recently I have seen that the battery has no longer been as hot as it used to be when I first started using it. Along with the sleeve on the tip of the screen power adapter (below the part where the adapter lights up) has started to come off, exposing the wires. The battery has continually dropped down its percentage rate ever since I bought it, and it won't go back up. It is currently at 0% battery life and it says when you highlight over the battery icon ( plugged in, not charging). It also happens to show the BIO setup when I start the computer and shows that the batteries wattage and type cannot be determined. In the BIOS setup, the ac adapter type is unknown. The battery has not been through any harsh conditions along with the laptop. I have tried removing the battery, starting up the computer with the ac adapter (which is 130 watts), then adding the battery back, and ac adapter, then turning it on, but it had no effects. If I remove my ac adapter while my computer is on ,it instantly turns off. If someone can support me with this issue, it would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Laptop battery not charging, battery not identified, 0% battery life

It sounds likely the charge circuit on the mainboard is damaged.  Contact Dell to have the mainboard replaced under warranty.

Hi, my Yoga 720 decided that it should shut down when in battery mode. According to the windows system logs Kernel-power had a critical error. I tried to update BIOS to the latest version, but that failed as during the installation it stated that the battery is missing. Anyone have any tips, or should I contact the store where I bought it? RegardsAnders
