HP Laptop charging issue.

Q: HP Laptop charging issue.

Laptop quit working. It is currently dead and won't power up. Whenever AC adapter is inserted it blinks white white in quick succession then, orange orange white then it goes out. Same result if battery is removed and AC Adapter is plugged in. I've searched for the meaning behind this indicator pattern but could not find it. Please advise. Thanks. I don't have an alternate AC adapter to try.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Update. Found another HP AC adapter and it generated the same result. white white in quick succession, then orange orange white indicator light pattern.

When I plug in the charger cable, my laptop stops being charged after one or two minutes, (I triple checked the cable and it was connected) and I had to reconnect the charger to charge it again.... and once I decided to remove the battery and work with my laptop like normal pc, this time after minutes it suddenly turned off... and it would only be on again if I disconnected and reconnecter the charger. I also tried wiggling the charger cable but nothing nothing happened.
it couldn't be the battery because other laptops work fine with battery removed but mine didn't, so what could be the problem?
 

A:Charging laptop issue

Almost certain you need a new charger.

What's the make and model of laptop?

What's the SPECIFIC VOLTAGE SPECS of the charger?

This one has had me confused for some time. I am nearly certain at this point that it is the motherboard that will need to be replaced, but I wanted to see if there was anybody here that has dealt with this issue that may offer a little insight on the situation.

Specs:

HP Pavillion DV4-1435dx
4 GB RAM
500 GB HDD
2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
Windows 7 x64

I started having several issues with this machine on boot, so I upgraded the BIOS, OS and RAM. This resolved most of the issues but now we come to the part of the story that has me stumped. The machine is having an unusual charging issue. If I were to remove AC power from the unit while the battery is plugged in, I will not be able to charge the battery again until I completely power the unit off, remove the battery, plug the AC adapter in, and replace the battery. The exception to this rule is if I power the unit completely off (or hibernate it) and remove the AC, I will be able to plug it back in anytime before I power that unit back on and it will function normally. I have since replaced both the AC adapter and the battery, but the issue persists. I have checked all of the advanced power options in the control panel. I have not altered the registry in any way as of yet because I believe this is a hardware issue.

If anybody has any insight into this issue, let me know. I would very much like to know at least what is causing it to justify buying a new mobo or any more parts for the machine.

Thanks,

Don
 

A:Laptop Battery charging issue

The power settings have no effect if Windows is not running.

Has the battery been calibrated so that it reads the correct percentage and the circuitry knows when to start charging?

How do you know when it is "working" or not?

I have a probook 4540s. I recently bought an aftermarket battery as my OEM battery was completely dead. But the problem with it is that, the battery only charges when the laptop is off. But while connected to outlet and on the battery does not take any charge. The laptop starts with only adapter or battery just fine. I checked by reducing processing power to see whether the battery takes any charge but nothing happens. It neither charges nor discharge. I used batteryBar software to see charging rate. Its flat zero all the time when the laptop is on. What can I do to overcome this issue.

We have the same problem as Wintercs. We plug the adapter into the dc jack on our HP Pavilion ZE2000 - sometimes it recognizes the charger, and then without notice it will stop charging and go onto battery. Unlike Wintercs, we have changed adapters 4 times (2 at her college and 2 at home). So we know it is not the adapter.As I was writing this post, the charging light on the laptop turned off .... stopped recognizing the charger.

A little history might help - my daughter, against my wishes, has always kept her laptop turned on even when she is out of the house for long periods. The adapter is always plugged in as well. The laptop was often resting on her comforter on her bed and would get rather warm.

The unit is 3 years old and has never been serviced. I have never cleaned out any dust or checked the status of any fan (is there a fan ?).

Did a little research and found a part called a motherboard DC jack #38. It is cheap enough but needs to be soldered onto the motherboard. Before going through this process and expense of getting someone to do it for me, am I on the right track ? Or have we done damage to the motherboard already ?

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Laptop charging issue

Well the laptop seems to work just fine, internet, network, apps all working. Just the charger problem at this point. Any suggestions on how to determine the cause since it is not the adapters ? Can a professional techie determine the cause ? Or would they be doing a process of elimination - lets replace this ; and then lets replace that ; etc.

I own a Toshiba Satellite P25 running Windows XP SP2.

I'm in a funny situation regarding my battery/battery charging that I've never heard about...I recently purchased a new battery because my old one wasn't holding a charge. The battery WILL charge but only when the laptop is powered off or in standby. When the power cord is inserted, the instant I power on, the charge light turns off. I've checked the power while in Windows and it reads "AC power, discharging" instead of "charging." On very rare occasions, the charge light on the laptop will remain on for a while after I turned off the computer but will eventually go out.

I've tried playing with the amount of plug I insert into the laptop, but it makes no difference. I'm suspecting it's a hardware problem with the actual port inside the laptop, like maybe it's loose? But that doesn't explain (IMO) why it only charges when the power is off. Or is it likely to be the power cord itself?

I'd love to hear what you pros think. Thanks in advance!

Hi there!

I have an Asus laptop running Windows 7 that is about 4 years old. Recently it stopped charging and would just die. Tried a bunch of things (using a different charger/ using a different battery from the exact same brand/series of laptop etc) to no avail. I took it to a guy to fix and it turned out to be the motherboard - which had to be replaced (ouch ).
Anyway, while this did fix the initial problem it unfortunately caused another.

My laptop thinks it is constantly plugged in and charging even though it is running on battery and losing charge. Because of this issue, I no longer get the notifications that my battery is low and it has caught me out!
I spoke to the guy who fixed my laptop to begin with and he has no idea why it is doing this, and also informed me that it's not great for the laptop either (which I was worried about).

I have played around with the battery options/notifications in settings but this does not help at all. I use my laptop a lot for full screen things (gaming, movies etc) so I'm unable to keep an eye on the battery level.

I'd rather avoid having to pay out again, so does anyone know of perhaps a software program that I can download that would create a pop up on the screen when the battery reaches low levels? The Windows 7 one was great for that as it would pop up over whatever you had playing in full screen.

I've searched google and forums and I'm running out of ideas. I've checked some of the threads h... Read more

I have had my Dell Inspiron 5520 Laptop since late 2012. It has been a great computer, and although I have recently upgraded to a new Dell laptop, I still use my 5520 for writing and entertainment purposes. The only reason I upgraded at all was because I had a hard drive go bad and didn't realize that it was only the hard drive at the time. I restored the computer with a different version of Windows 7 after I replaced the drive and everything is working great - except the battery charging. It is sporadic. What happens is I plug in the charging cord at times, the computer detects it for a second or two, and then it no longer charges. I ran a complete PC health check and it showed everything is working properly and the battery is healthy, but it did not detect it being plugged in even when it was. I also flashed the BIOS, and it had no real affect on the charging issue. WHAT DID WORK was shutting down the computer, removing the battery, and pressing the power button for 30 seconds and reinstalling the battery. After I do that, it does detect the charging cord is connected and the battery charges properly - but only for a week or two, and then I usually have to do it all over again. Any thoughts? Is my battery going? Charging cord? Any other thoughts? It's not a HUGE deal that this is happening. I love this computer. If I can correct the problem, I will. Thanks!

Hi...

I am having a problem with my laptop computer. I figured out that my laptop, when being charged or using the Power Outlet, runs at 100% CPU at times, and slows me down when running and working on some open applications. At first I thought I had tons of spyware or even a virus, and even posted a Hijackthis file here. Nothing was found.
I figured out that my cpu runs at 100% when using the power outlet, or when my computer is chargnig. When I unplug the powercord and use the battery life, everything runs GREAT!!!!! my cpu drops to a normal 4-8% usage with multiple applications running. WEIRD huh? Can anyone relate to this ?? Is this and indication that my battery is going bad???? Can someone help me with this or suggest what is going on? I am running windows XP home edition, and have a compac presario 1500 series.

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.

A:Charging Issue

Is the issue that the original adapter isn't recognized (enter setup -- F2 at powerup) -- if the adapter shows unknown, the battery will not charge.
If that is happening, try a new Dell adapter (third party adapters will run the system but not charge the battery).  If that doesn't solve the issue, replace the DC jack:
www.parts-people.com/index.php
... and if that doesn't get the adapter recognized, the issue is with the charge circuit on the mainboard.

Hi there.

This morning i was checking some things before i left home for the day, my cat jumped on my laptop, after he got off i straightened it back up on my lap and heard a click as the laptop screen turned black, the power lights over the button and the red power light were still on.
i held the pwer button down and rebooted, the screen lit up and showed a 'rtc battery low error' i pressed enter and went in to what it was telling me too i immediately pressed exit cause i had no idea what i was doing, the computer rebooted and went to windows normally i signed in and conneted to wifi then i noticed it wasnt charging, i put the charger in and it flickered then went dull, i realized it wasnt charging, so i restarted again, it was a little slow but when i went in to windows it took forever to recognise my Wifi and it would not charge no matter how i moved the cord. I decided to leave it until i got home (am not there yet) before i worried but when i sat it on the floor on its side it was charging, i laid it down and it wasnt then i tried it back in the previous position it wouldnt charge.

I know this is kind of an essay of a post but if anybody could give my any ideas or tips on what could be wrong, it would be much appreciated, thanksss
