Q: my laptop battery drained out while doing updates, now it wont boot

hi,

i have a dual boot laptop dell insperion 1710. dual boot xp and vista on a partitioned disk
last night my battery ran out while it was doing an update for xp.

tried to boot into xp but it would get stuck on the xp emblem.

if all else fails i guess i will have to reinstall XP again. and i know that is a pain cause i have to go into dos commands an mess with the bootlaoder.

evrtything is backed up on a external drive.

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.

This first time it occurred when I was browsing websites for a school project. The laptop suddenly turned off. I did hard reset by holding the power button and everything but it won't turn on. The backlight key and fan still working but the screen is black.I let the laptop there for some hours. Then it was able to turn on normally. I then charged the laptop to 90% and turned it off. This time the problem occurred again. It won't turn on correctly unless the battery is completely drained !!! I contacted Microsoft and they had me reset my laptop, but the problem still occurs! I've tested many times !!!I was frustrated so I took the battery off with some screwdrivers. So now I only use the AC adapter. However, the freaking thing still happen! I can't identify what is the problem !! I need help !

Dear forum users,
I have a big problem as my Dell Inspiron15 3000 series laptp started to behave strangely since I updated the bios from the version on the dell drivers and support website. 

I upgraded to the V12 version Dell Inspiron 3442,3542,5748 System BIOS Version: A12 ,A12, when originally the laptop came with version A06. 

However, since the upgrade, my laptop battery drains after I have switched the laptop off. Therefore I'm having all kinds of issues starting the laptop in the morning and I am afraind this behaviour will lead to a disfunctioning laptop rather soon.
Downgrading the bios version to version A06 is not possible as the utility exists with the message that Dell doesn't recommend downgrading the BIOS version.
What can I do?

First off I have a IBUYPOWER 101 batalion turbo laptop or its also a uniwill 259en1 notebook as well. Just recently (past 3-4 months) whenever I restart my computer and it gets to the login screen it instantly shuts down and begins the startup again, and this process continues. However, when I remove the power cord (running on battery) it starts up fine. So basically i have to remove the power cord until it reaches the login screen and then i reconnect it. What would be causing this? Hardware? Software? Thanks for your input everyone.

A:Laptop wont boot with ac on, but only with battery.

Have you got a multimeter to check the voltage from the power supply?
The output voltage should be listed in your power supply.
If your power plugs directly in to the laptop (without a transformer then your on board power supply may be going bad.

 My G700 has had this issue recognizing its own OEM battery since I got it, and there is a long drawn out way of trying to resolve this, but the core problem I believe is that when the battery is Fully Drained it can't Self Identify as an OEM battery, so the laptop won't charge it.  Without charge, it will never get out of this state. Problem:  Battery not recognized correctly as OEM, so won't chargeFix:  Charge battery at least a little bit Yes, I know it won't charge, so how do you perform fix? Plug into power and take battery in and out 5-10 times, leave battery in and remove and replug power cord in side of laptop 5-10 times.  Then leave for 15 minutes, then boot normally. Battery will now be recognized!  Why because you managed to get just enough juice in there while trying to identify the battery 10x or so, for the battery to be able to successfully identify itself when you did start it up. This is a HACK fix, but way better than uninstalling, reinstalling power software, BIOS software and device drivers a number of times (which does not work all that well, I have found). Hope this helps you, let me know! OHHH, and keep your battery charged at least a little to prevent this from happening, and turn power off when not using.  I am not sure if this is just some faulty batteries or all batteries, let me know if other batteries behave better than mine. Best,Mark Eckdahl

Hello,

I own a Dell Studio 15 laptop, usually I get about 3 1/2 to 4 hours of battery life on powersaver mode, depending on what I have turned on and stuff. But when i checked my battery a day ago, I only had 1 hour and 45 minutes of battery life at 100%!! I know that battery life drains over time, but this was so sudden! I lost 2 hours of battery life overnight! Could anyone explain what has happened and how I could go about fixing this problem?

Hi,

I've a problem with my Z930-164 : The battery loose around 8% every 12 hours while it is off.

I've the latest bios (6.80) and the latests drivers. I'm with windows 7 64 bits.

By trying many things, I've founded that it is the option : "Sleep and Charge" in the bios. By default it is on Auto mode (1.5 A), there is a 2.0A mode too. If I turn it off, the battery only loose 1% every 12 hours while it is off.

In default mode, why it does not power the USB while sleeping ONLY if there is a device ? Not to drain the battery !

It is a huge problem no ?

null

A:Satellite Z930 : Battery is drained while off

The enabled Sleep & Charge function affects the battery working time.
Sleep & Charge allows to charge external connected devices (like smartphone) even if the notebook is in sleep mode.

Furthermore enabled ?Wakeup? options (Wake up on LAN, etc..) which are available in BIOS would lead to battery discharging.
Therefore disable these options if you don?t want to discharge the battery.

Hello there,
I have a Dell Inspiron 3542 and for the past few weeks I have found that the battery drains after shutting down the laptop. The following is a step by step explanation of the issue :
1. After charging the laptop to 100 %, I clicked Start > Power > Shut down.
2. After waiting for like 5 minutes and ensuring that the laptop is, like "dead" ( no sounds, vibrations or anything ), I closed the lid and kept it on the table.
3. Next day, switch the laptop on and it does not turn on. The battery light flashes for a second and goes off. I connect the AC adapter and the laptop switches on. It shows 0 % battery.
I have run a full diagnostic check up of the laptop and the results do not display any issues related to memory, hard disk or the battery. Lid sensor also works perfectly.
However, I found something interesting. I checked the Event Viewer and I found the following logs :
1. Information 10-09-2017 21:16:51 User32 1074 None :

Hi

When I do a suspend to ram during the night, battery can lost 20%... don't think is really normal.

How much charge do you lost during the night?

Thanks

A:Satellite Z830 - Suspend to RAM -> battery drained

Even when notebook is OFF battery will lose the capacity so it is ?normal?.
How many percent will battery lose is different and not the same on all notebook models.

To be honest if you use notebook on battery power supply it is logic to me that during the night you use hibernation and not stand-by mode. Stand-by mode is for short period of time only.

The lap top has been working with no issues since purchase, but last week it was being used and the battery was completely drained and it switched off. As it was not needed at that point, it was left until the following morning. When it was plugged in, it woudl not start. So we left it charging and still nothing. When you push the start button the keyboard lights up for a few seconds and then goes off and that is it. I have read through numerous other similiar issues and have tried all of the following with no success: 1. Pushed and held power button for times ranging from 20 seconds to 1 minute2. Tried reset button3. Opened up back and pulled plug out of battery, then tried various combinations of pushing power for extended periods, with no power cable etc, and then plugging back in again So now at a bit of a loss as tried everything I can read on line with people suggest, the only other but I have read is about removing RAM, but not sure where they, I think below the battery. So not sure if I need to completely remove the battery etc, but wanted to see if anyone else had any better / easier ideas before I try that. Thanks for any help and guidance Model number - Lenovo Yoga 2 13, Model name 20344

I have an old Dell Inspiron 2200 laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit, and I recently replaced the battery that originally came with it.

The new battery is good, it lasts about 4 hours on a charge, but Vista seems to be reacting to it very strangely. Immediately after I take it off AC power, Vista will alert me that my battery power has reached 99% and is critically low.

After that it'll run fine for about an hour, then when it hits 75% or so it will put itself into sleep mode automatically as if the battery was dead. After it's asleep, I can turn it right back on and it will run for an additional 3 hours before shutting down again (this time because the battery really is dead).

I've tried full-discharging the battery to calibrate it a couple of times, but it made no difference in the behavior. As far as I can tell the battery is fine otherwise (the percentage and time remaining that Vista tells me seem to be accurate), and the computer has no problems when it is plugged in to AC power.

This strange behavior happens exactly the same way every single time I run the computer on battery. Low Battery warning at 99% and false shutdown around 75%. After that it's fine. Any ideas what could be causing this problem?

Hello Chefgon, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Double check your advanced Power Plan Options (Control Panel) settings under the Battery options for what levels it should warn you at. You can adjust these settings for what it should do when it reaches the level you set.

I have received my new X260 laptop a month ago (also my first Lenovo), I did a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro and a bunch of drivers. It has been working well until now. Two days ago, I used it all-day with original adaptor plugged in. At the end of the day, I unplugged it and close the lid to put it to Sleep mode before I left work. The day after, I came to work and found my X260 battery was at 5%. I thought I have mistakenly set the Power Option so I checked and it was set to Sleep when I close the lid. Yesterday, I did the same, put it to Sleep before leaving work, but this time I clicked Start > Power icon > Sleep to make sure it entered Sleep mode and I watched the red LED on the lid blink slowly. Today I came to work and the battery was at 5% again! I am suspecting that X260 woke up at some point during the night. I don't know how, no cables connected. Please guide me if I need to update any driver or check any settings on Windows/BIOS. Thank you.

Power it on.2.1 As soon as you press the power-on button, imeediately start hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).This should open a HP Startup Menu which may look similar to this one 3.

I looked at the Event Viewer and it appears it entered sleep, and then resumed from sleep two seconds later (I'm guessing right after I shut the lid).  How do I stop this? I have the power options to "sleep" I have tried to turn off all the "Allow this device to wake up th computer" - no matter what I try, it seems to not go to sleep. It does *sometimes* but the vast majority, it doesn't if I just shut the lid.  My BIOS is updated.  Is there any lesser known fix?  EDIT: Oh yeah, and sometimes it won't wake up from sleep when pressing power, or opening lid, or pressing fn + 4.

Hi,

I have the following big problem with my Satellite Click Mini L9W-B - this happened already two times.

I suspect that this may be connected to some Windows 8.1 setting. It also may be it is BIOS related.

PROBLEM: if I leave the laptop in a sleep mode (by just closing the lid), then If I do not use it for some time (>10 hours) then after that I could not switch the laptop on - it simply does not respond to any keys including the power on button. It does not matter whether I connect the power or disconnect it, I still can not power on the laptop, also it does not matter whether I try it with or without the keyboard attached. BUT: the battery on back on the screen is warm ,so obviously the laptop has not been switched off completely and something (i.e. windows sleep mode or bios or something else) is preventing me to power it on.

The solution I have so far is to leave the laptop for a very long time disconnected (to drain the battery completely - it will not be warm any more!) and then connect the power and then it will be able to switch on. Alternatively, opening the screen cover and manually disconnecting the battery and then connecting it again also work. After that the laptop can be switched on and works fine.

Obviously it is not very good because to wait very long (several days!) or to open the cover is not really a good option when you need the laptop!

Can you help?

May be it is something to do with some power-saving features of Windows?

Many thanks!

A:Satellite Click Mini L9W-B - could not switch it on until battery is fully drained

There is a quick workaround instead of waiting for the battery to drain...

Hold down power button for around 20-30 seconds. That should hardware turn off the power completely allowing you to turn it on again.

Update the bios to the latest version and apply all windows updates after that, that may solve the sleep bug issue

A:win10 battery drained so fast unexpectedly, Dell Inspiron 15-5559

Turn off Fast Startup. Under Windows 10, your computer does not totally shut down with Fast Startup on. It can actually be running processes when you think it is "shut down". If you leave it off AC power for any length of time, it can drain your battery. With Fast Startup off, your computer will boot slightly slower, but it should not make a big difference.

I have a Toshiba A75 since 2 years. The original battery had become weak and running only 30-40 minutes. One day it just died. Charge showed 100% but as soon as power went off the computer immediately turned off. So I got a 3rd party battery (I have got battery for another laptop from them before).
But the problem was same. Battery charged to 100% but as soon as power cord removed, the computer just turns off immediately. Interestingly, if the power cord is left in and the power is switched off from mains, then the computer runs for 3-4 seconds and then turns off.
Sometimes while working, for no apparent reason, the ac power light turns off and the computer goes on battery. Then it works on battery and the battery discharges. To get it back on ac power, I have to remove and replug the power cord (of course as soon as I do that the computer is off )
I dismantled the laptop to check the DC jack connection but these seem ok. I resoldered them just in case there was a problem, but there is no chenge. PLEASE HELP ON THIS. Do I have a problem in battery or laptop??????
 

A:Laptop wont run on battery

I have not received any replies so I am posting a followup. I have got a new battery but the result is the same. As soon as I switch off the power, the indicator in system tray changes to battery icon and after 3-4 seconds the machine is off. The battery was 0% when I put it and it charged to 87% and then I tried to switch off the power. The battery is charging ok. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM????

brand new battery, it shows as plugged in and charging but when you unplug it the power shuts off automatically... so the battery is fine and charging it just wont run on it!

What could this be?

also it runs with the battery out and just wall plugged just fine..
 

A:Laptop wont use battery?

It is of course possible that the battery is fried, and simply isn't holding charge for any length of time at all. However it is also possible that the charge sensors have set themselves incorrectly, such that it holds an hour or so of charge but registers (and reports to the computer) as flat. The computer then hurriedly shuts down to avoid losing power and damaging itself. You may have to recalibrate the battery by completely charging, discharging, and recharging it.

Hi,
I am using a HP Laptop, 6314tx. It has been 1 year and 9 months since I am using it. In the past couple of months, I have experienced a battery problem. My laptop battery doesn't charge more than 33%. It was 67% first, then came down to 43% and now 32%. Sometimes, it shows '100% available (plugged in, charging).' But, when I click on the battery icon, it again shows as '32% available (plugged in, charging).'

Is there any solution to this?

Hey, im using an acer aspire. I think I dropped the laptop twice yesterday by mistake when it slid off the bed whilst I wasn't looking.

The charge light comes on, but it doesn't charge. I really need help, and im not experienced with computers. My charger connects to a small hole on the right hand side of the laptop.

Acer 3680
Model number : ZR1
I really really need help, this is the 3rd time my laptops failed me. My dad bought it and he'll be dissapointed in me a lot and i'll have to go through a hard time if he finds out again that I messed it up. =[

-Thanks in advance, Shafski

My Elitepad will boot on the AC adapter but as soon as I remove it the device shuts down. I thought it might be a battery problem but have ran some tests and even purchased an additional battery jacket and it still wont stay powered up when I remove the PSU.  Both batteries are showing 100% charged. Thank you in advance for your help or ideas.

I have a Dell 7737 laptop and from time to time it develops a firmware glitch where random keys stop working for both BIOS Setup and Operating Systems. After such thing happens neither shutdown (Full shutdown / Fast Boot disabled) nor restart get the keyboard back to a normal state. At this point the only workarround is to disconnect the AC power cord and then either drain the battery or physically remove it.
This laptop's battery cover is not designed for daily removal and it is starting to get loose because of this BIOS bug.
I am running BIOS version A14 but this bug was present since I purchased the laptop with BIOS version A07. Sometimes I cannot even type my password because the random keys that stop working match those it uses.
Please Dell could you provide a BIOS hotfix for this annoying issue?

After reciveing a security update from MS about 8 days ago my computer stopped booting, in any mode. I Contacted MS tech support and was instructed on how to do many things, (for some reason I could not get it across to them that the computer would not boot). After reloading the system, without the updates, was when I tried MS's tech support recommendations, none of which cured the problem. The only way to get the computer to boot was to reload the windows XP program, with SP2. at that point everything worked fine. until i downloaded the security updates. Then the machine would not boot in any mode... I have done this so many times I'M SICK OF THE COMPUTER.
QUESTION: Assuming that i need the security updates, what can i do to find out which update is causing the problem. 2. After installing the updates (without MS Internet Exporoer update 6) and booting in the normal mode, I get the BSOD and a dump to the disk. What can i use to get to the hard drive to copy the dump and send it to MS tech support.
 

A:computer wont boot after updates

You can take out the hard drive from your desktop and send it to MS by mail. They should take it in and repair it without deleting any of your files. I haven't tried this so I don't know if they will except the file. Call MS before doing any of this.

Good Luck!

Hi all,
I'm new here and have a problem with my laptop...it wont turn on! When you plug the power lead into the laptop, the battery light is lit but when you try to turn the laptop on it goes off- there's also a small clicking sound each time I try to turn it on. I've tried running the laptop without the battery and still no success. Also if you leave the power lead in the battery light goes off within a minute...I'm absolutly stuck with what to try next- I've used compressed air etc to try and clean everything out...still nudda.

Any help much appreciated!
 

A:Laptop wont turn on- dead battery?

Sounds like a failed HardDrive (if it is you will need it replaced)

Just in case though:

Remove all power (battery and adaptor)
Hold down the power ON button for 30secs (dispersing all internal voltage)
Plug the power adaptor in only (for the moment)
Turn on

If it still doesn't work, I think the HardDrive has gone (ie clicking noise)
