Q: Z50 laptop only charges when in standby or off

Hi, I have had amy laptop for a few years and it has always charged well - after using it whilst I was away it sudenly stopped charging when in use. It still charges when in standby mode or when turned off but not when I am using it. When the charger is plugged in I get this error message "the power adaptor does not matchup with the computer and cannot supply power Buy" it obviously works to charge and is the original power supply supplied with the laptop so I am reluctant to replace it. I wonder if it is a software issue - Any suggestions and ideas greatfully recieved. many 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.

Great laptop that Ive been using for 1.5 years. Recently I've noticed my battery is showing signs of an error other Dell users are reporting.
Laptop charges fine to 76% then it starts alternating from "plugged in, charging" to "plugged in, not charging". Charging after 76% becomes really slow.
What I've done so far:
1. Updated BIOS
2. Updated Dells Power Management tool
3. BIOS can detect the adapter (45W). Im using the adapter that came with the laptop
4. Battery settings in power management and BIOs are set to Standard
5. Completely drained the battery and tried doing a full charge
6. Uninstalled Microsoft ACPI compliant control in device manager then re-installed
Battery diagnostics show the battery is in EXCELLENT health.
Any ideas?

Hi,

I have been running my laptop off the charger for a few months now (the laptop does hold some charge when running off the battery, but only 30 mins tops before the battery is empty - need a new one).

Today I turned the laptop on with the charger plugged in but the laptop wasn't charging and running off the battery. On the original charger, it neither charges (light comes on) when its off or on.

So I bought a new charger but again the laptop doesn't charge when on. When the laptops off with the new charger plugged in the port lights up (I'm assuming its charging) but when I turn the laptop on, the light goes off and the laptop runs off the battery.

Is this because the battery is knackered and needs a new one? Or could this be something else?

Thanks for any help.

A:Laptop charges when off but not when on

Yeah it sounds like you may need a new battery. My brother just had a similar problem with his laptop. It would not charge at all when on or off. They switched out the charger, that didn't work. Then they switched the connector that was in the laptop, that didn't work. Turns out it was the battery, doh!

Hi all, My laptop is new, i've had it for just about a month now. There's usually an orange charging light on the side of the laptop that illuminates when the charger is plugged in. However recently, whenever my laptop is on and i try to charge it, the orange light illuminates for a matter of seconds and comes up with the message "plugged in but not charging" and then the light just turns white and the laptop continually runs as if nothing is plugged in. However, when the laptop is turned off, the orange light will iluminate and will  charge to 100%. The charger is completely fine as it appears to charge the laptop when it is off. I have even purchased a new charger and that has made no difference. It appears as though it's some type of settings problem, but i have checked settings and nothing seems to be different. Any help would be appreciated, as i'd hate to have to keep switching of my laptop just so that it will charge.

Hey there,My laptop only turns on if the battery is charged in another laptop then put into mine, then while turned on it will continue to charge the battery and work normally.But it will not turn on with just the charger plugged in OR with a flat battery, it will also not charge the battery if it is turned off.Worst of all if the laptop is turned off for more than 5 minutes then the battery instantly goes flat.So I again must charge it in a different laptop to be able to turn mine on.It's not the battery nor the charger as I have tried my friends of each which work perfectly fine in his laptop but I still have the same problems with them.Any ideas?

Hi everyone.

My laptop is giving me issues. About 3 days ago it started to only charge to 84% while plugged in. So last night I went to sleep and left it plugged in while the laptop was off. I woke up and it is still only charged to 84%.

It's a gateway and it's only 6 months old. The last laptop I had was an Acer and it never did this once in 3 years. Is the battery defective or could this be something else?

Any help is appreciated. thanks

Hey There.
I have a problem with my laptop. It started off working fine but recently I started having trouble.
When I plug in the charger, it charges fine but then after 2 minutes the charging led goes off then on then off then on for 4 seconds, as if im taking off the charger, and putting it back on. Then after those 4 seconds or so are up, it starts charging normally again.. then does it a few mins/seconds later.
What is wrong? can it be a driver issue?
Due to this, it never reaches 100% only 10%
I know for sure its not the ac or battery.

Hello!A few years ago I bought a HP ProBook 450G1 and I've been using it for a while. Last month I had to get it fixed because it wouldn't turn on, somethings were damaged by a faulty charger. Since then, I bought a new charger (Hama, universal charger) and the voltage matches the original one.Since I got my laptop back from the service, I have this problem: when it's plugged in, it charges for a few seconds and then it says "Plugged in, not charging" and after a bit more time it starts charging again. The battery level stays the same. I've never changed my battery.I have also tried reinstalling the ACPI-Compliant Contro Method Battery from Device Manager. I have also tried unplugging the charger, removing the battery and all the peripherals and afterwards holding the power button for 20-40seconds. I updated the BIOS aswell, I got the update from HP website. The problem was there before the update, and it still appears.Please note that if I remove my battery, but the laptop is still plugged in, it will shut down after some seconds.

Is the battery original? The knee-jerk here is to blame the "universal" adapter. Have you tried the diagnostics on the battery by tapping esc or F2 as you power up?

My laptop only charges when in sleep mode or when switched off. I have tested my charger properly and it is fine. When I charge my laptop when it is on, the charging area goes orange for a few seconds then white which is what should only happen when your laptop is fully charged. However my laptop does this even with 8% of battery left. It seems like the laptop always thinks it's fully charged when on. How do I fix this?

Hi if anyone can help i would be so greatful!!

I have a laptop which slows down as soon as i plug it into the mains. When running on batteries it is as fast as it should be and is perfect. I could comprehend the problem if it was the otherway around but this is too wierd.

I have rebooted the wholes system, it is clean as a whistle, over 30G of space, Virus checker / Firewall / ADaware remover / Registry cleaner / Defraged / Disk Cleanup - everything is in working order to keep this machine clean and healthy and it is.

The problem is most apparent when watching movies or clips, as the image goes out of sinc with the sound, freezes or goes super-slow, yet as soon as i remove the plug, and it's running on batteries it's fine again.

I know someone out there must have a solution.

A:Laptop runs slow, when i plug it in & it charges

Doesn't quite make sense as far as the battery vs. plug -- but otherwise the symptoms may fit an IDE controller in PIO mode.

> If you open the Device Manager (run devmgmt.msc) and select the entry for IDE ATA/Atapi and select the Primary IDE > Advanced Settings, does it say the "current transfer mode" is DMA or PIO?

If it says PIO, first ensure "Use DMA if Available” is selected, then select the driver tab and uninstall the driver and reboot. Then check again.

Hi @Kashiffc154,

 

Good day .and thank you for choosing the HP community. ! It is a great location to find resolutions.

 

I reviewed the post about charging issues with the unit. It charges only when the unit is turned off. I?ll be more than happy to assist you here.

 At the outset, you?ve diagnosed the issue perfectly and performed great analysis of the situation before posting the query on HP forums.

 Excellent job on that score. Kudos to you. It is always a privilege to work with technically savvy customers.

 I take it as a privilege to share this platform with you. We value your relationship with HP and wish to serve you better.

 

It looks like a hardware issue with the unit. The battery controllers that supply charge to the battery are not functioning while the computer is powered on and work only when it is powered down.

 

For better clarity and to assist you better I would require more information regarding this.
Did it this begin after any update like windows update, bios update or any other update?
Have you tried with a different battery or charger if you could get hold of one?
For now please follow these steps.
Uninstall the ACPI drivers from device manager for the battery.
 Then test and calibrate the battery.
Then change the power plan to the windows default plan.

Hi guys, I have a problem with my laptop battery. It refuses to charge unless it's completely drained to 0%.

The battery contacts could be corroded by the spilled water. It takes time for this corrosion to develop so that's why the time that the laptop worked. The water could have affected other internal circuits too over time. The laptop needs to be opened up and inspected

I have a HP stream x360, and it is having battery problems. First of all, it drains even when I shut it down completely. I shut it down with approximately 90% battery and about a day later it wont turn on. So I go to charge it, which leads to my second problem. It charges insanely slow. It has been plugged in for 12 hours, and when I press power, the button lights up for 5 seconds and then turns off. It isn't a kink in the wire because I store it properly, and it is unravelled when charging. It isn't the outlet because ai have moved 3 times, which means totally different outlets, but all with the same charge speed; SLOW. Finally, it is actually fully plugged into the computer because the little red light IS on, indicating it is charging. So what do I do? What is wrong? I can't take out a battery because it is internal. And currently, I cannot do anything with the computer because it is still dead, and it has a habit of taking 2 days to charge. About. Please help. I got it about 9 months ago. It isn't even a year old.

Ever since yesterday I've had this problem, I tried several solutions and none of them worked. Basically the problem is: The laptop only works on battery now. When the battery is at 0% the laptop turns off even if the AC is plugged in. To make matters worse, when the laptop is on I get this message "plugged, not charging". So basically the AC no longer works by itself and only charges the battery when the laptop is off. Here is what I tried so far:- Changing the settings on the Lenovo Energy Mangement tool- Uninstalling the Lenovo Energy Mangement tool - Taking off the battery and AC, pushing the power button for 30 seconds, putting them back in and turning on the laptop.- Starting the laptop on safe mode- Praying to God None of these things worked.

I've an Inspiron 15 7560, it's just just 3 months old. The design capacity of the battery in this thing is 41,998 mWh but windows batteryreport and hwmonitor are showing a full charge capacity of 39,079 mWh. That's 7% less. But the strange thing is that batteryreport as well as hwmonitor show a charge level of 107% when the laptop is full charged. And that's not on one occasion, every full charge is shown as 107%.. The thing that's even more strange is that according to battery capacity history of powercfg batteryreport that drop in capacity happened just around the time I changed the battery charge setting from "Adaptive" to "Primarily AC Use" in Dell Power Manager Lite. What's happening here?

The lowering of the threshold is what is intended.
This link will give you more information on the charge options.

Laptops have 2 Power settings, one for Plugged In and one for Battery

Most default settings for Battery are to turn off or suspend within a few minutes. Make the changes there.

There is also a setting in the BIOS, which needs to be accessed during Startup. When you first boot the system up, you will see something that says "press F1 key to enter Setup" or something similar. That is your Bios settings.

I am on Win10 Pro x64, 1709 (Creators Update)

Everything was working fine, until one day my laptop started to have problems coming out of Standby. Instead of waking up, it would hang with a black screen, and the only way out is to reboot. This would not happen every time I tried to wake up, but it reached a point where it would hang more often than not.

I tried to bypass the problem by Hibernating instead of Sleeping, but when restarting after Hibernation, I had the same result - hung machine. I tried changing some Power Options, but to no avail.

I restored Windows from an image (Backup A) created shortly after The Creators Update was done, and my laptop was OK again. I re-installed some apps that I considered to be safe, and all was still OK.

Now I created another image Backup B.

I then re-installed the rest of apps that I had before the Restore. These were things that I thought could have a greater chance of being problematic, like Intel Chipset, Intel MEI, etc. Still, after all my apps were re-installed, everything was OK.

Until it wasn't. After a few days, the problem came back. After a few futile attempts at finding a solution, I restored Windows from Backup B (which was created while the machine appeared to be OK!). But the problem is still there! I then restored from Backup A (which resulted in a working system the first time), but the problem is still there.

Without know the make/model of your laptop, the best answer I have from recent experience is to update the BIOS of your laptop.

Go to the manufactures website and download the newest BIOS update for your laptop..

Or boot into safe mode and remove SP2 and set automatic updates to 'OFF'.

A:how to start laptop from standby

hibernation is one of the biggest area of pain on this site, if you do not have to have it on hibernation then dont use it, corrupts files, knackers HDD, ram etc etc especially on xp

Hi there, i'm having a very frustrating problem.


My laptop Keeps going into standby mode.


I have set the Power Options to "NEVER" go into Standby etc, but these seem to do nothing.


Sometimes, i can't even boot the laptop up because it goes into standby straight away!

But other times when it is on, it goes into standby every so often, which is very annoying! Because i can't get it back on after that!


Ok:

Tried: Changing Power Settings to Never etc...

Tried: On battery, and with power cable...


Please do not suggest scanning viruses etc because there is none.


I'd really really appreciate it if you can help as im doing some work on the web and i keep getting shut off!

A:Laptop keep going into standby mode

Lets first see if it can be some software issue.

Does this laptop have any kind of power management software with it?

ie:Acer's some with a software called Acer Power Management

My computer is not hibernating or going to standby every time I close the lid. It does shut down initially when I close it, but less than 2 minutes later, it will start up again. Especially overnight, it will generally restart (when the lid is closed) about every 2 minutes the entire night. I've tried manually putting it into hibernate/standby and the same thing happens (goes to it, then restarts after a bit). This is draining all of my battery so I really can't take my laptop anywhere without my charger and a power outlet. Anyone know what's wrong? Thanks!
 

A:Laptop will not Hibernate/Standby

It sounds like you have some service running that wakes it up. First stop would be to check the perferials in Device Manager and make sure that the power option "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is enabled.

Next, I'd review the running processes to see if you can identify something that would be waking up periodically. You could also try disabling the wireless connection when you put it to sleep to see if the network activity is waking it up.

I have set the Windows XP (SP2) power options to go into standby mode when I close the lid on my laptop (HP Pavilion ze5715ca). However, when I open it up again, the screen is black (maybe the monitor is off?) and nothing will happen (windows won't start up again, even if I use the touchpad or press any keys). What's going on and how do I fix this?

Something wakes my laptop from standby and i don't know what. I get these at the same time and see them in Event Viewer:

Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection
Network link is disconnected
gupdate

The description for Event ID 0 from source gupdate cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

Service stopped


Any ideas?

A:Why My Laptop Wakes Up From Standby Without My intervention?

Hello Borisyo,

It appears that it's your network adapter that is waking the computer. You could use the steps in the tutorial below to uncheck the Allow this device to wake the computer box to hopefully stop this.

Devices - Allow or Prevent to Wake Up Computer

Hope this helps,
