I have a gateway m-6851. I bought this battery 2 months ago. This just started happening today. My laptop is running fine, I unplug it to move it. I assumed it went to battery power, but nope. It turned off. This happens 100% of the time. I've tried reseating the battery twice. Windows 7 reads it at 100% with no problems. any ideas?

I don't know that much about hardware, but is there maybe some setting thats messed up. Such as a setting that tells windows to switch to battery, or try to switch to battery, because windows reads the battery just fine.

Hi! This started about a few days, I have a Lenovo z40 70 with original parts (i7, 16GB, 1 Tb hd) and the computer identify there's a battery connected, but does not turn on with battery only and turns off when AC power cable is unplugged. I don't think the battery is dead since was lasting about 2~3 hours latelly. The notebook  seems even to charge the battery as usual.. but there's no condition to let it on without connecting AC...  Even before entering Windows the notebook refuses to use battery energy (immediatelly turns off) to boot on BIOS, for example. I dont know what's causing this. I recently have re-installed windows 10 on it... but the problems exists even before entering Windows... Any solution for that? I'm afraid of buying another battery without knowing if the battery is the problem.

Hello. About Christmas time I got a new laptop. It's a Dell Inspiron 15r SE (i15Rse-4267ALU). Basically, whenever I unplug my laptop it turns extremely slow. Not slow as in some programs take a while to load, I mean like I can barely move the mouse across the screen slow. My computer's specs are:

Intel Core i7-3632QM Processor
8 GB of RAM
Windows 8 Operating System
AMD Radeon HD 7730M Grapics Card (switchable)
Intel HD 4000 Graphics Card

Since I have had the laptop, I have always had it on plugged in ... recently I unplugged my laptop to bring it in the other room and I could barely even more the mouse across the screen. Its power plan is on High Performance, I have Google'd my issue before, and I haven't been able to fix it. Anyone have an idea as to why my PC is so ... slow unplugged? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

(Also, sorry if this is in the wrong forum section. I'm new to the forums and I don't know where this post would go other than Windows 8...)

Hi, my T440s won't start until i unplug/plug-in the batteries. If i push the power button there is zero reaction (no led, nothing). Then i unplug internal and external battery, plug them back in - and it works very normal. It lasts for a few switch-on/off, then the same problem again and i have to unplug/plug-in the batteries. The longer i leave the T440s switched off the more likely it is that the error occurs again. The batteries seem to be ok, i tested them both. Also if i only have one battery plugged-in - the same error. Anyone an idea what the problem might be? Thanks

Hello everone, I have a problem with my lenovo yoga 900, which is when I plug the charger after some moment it will (unplug) then instantly plug again, this process keeps going until my battery is getting fully charged from to time to time (maybe 20 unplug > plug while single fully charging cycle). I asked a repairer and suggsted to me to change the battery cord but it didnt solve the problem. also the USB charger port works properly for reding USB flashes with no plug > unplug. I wonder where is the problem, is it in the power supply soI should buy a completely new one (power supply with cord) or it is in battery? because both costs too much to test, Is there somebody tell me how can I fixthis problem? thanks...

And when I turn it back on, the orange battery light on the right side flashes quickly. Someone had told me that the battery was dead or I had to replace it but it worked just fine until today. I have been using this laptop for almost 4 years now. Thanks for the suggestions and help.

Hey there,
I've been using my upgraded Inpiron 17R SE happily for a couple of years by now. I've even gone as far as buying an 128GB SSD to futureproof it. This is the only drive - besides the DVD drive - currently present in the laptop. However I've had an issue for quite a while:
Whenever I try to boot the Laptop only using the Battery (even fully charged) it Posts then loads Windows and turns of just before the Login-Screen (I can't see it). When I proceed to turn it back on, it Posts then beeps and says that there is a Real Time Clock Error and gives me the option to proceed booting or to enter Setup.
This however doesn't occur when using the Power-Brick. Moreover it isn't always the case. Sometimes the Laptop boots and works fine just using the battery, but then upon opening a Programm (while under battery-power) it shuts of and gives the same error message again. If it decides to work the battery still lasts for 2-2.5 hours.
I'm really confused to what the problem is. It could be a power delivery problem, but it's still the original battery and laptop with only the HDD changed to a SSD.
I'm aware of it being a rather old machine, but selling it is my only hope for getting a new laptop for college, but I can't sell it in this state. 
I'm at a lost and really really sad because of this issue. I'm sorry for any typos or grammar mistakes, I'm a non native english speaker.

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?

I bought lenovo y500 two days ago in INDIA.  In the lenovo energy management system 8.0, I found a battery calibration option and decided to do it.  The steps mentioned there were as follows. 1. Full charge2. Full discharge  The process performed full charging followed by complete discharge of the battery which caused the laptop to shut down.   When I tried turning on my laptop, it could not start.  The battery charging indicator LED wasnt switched on even though the power cord was inserted into the laptop.  I could start the laptop only after removing the battery.   Once the laptop was on, I inserted the battery back in and it began to charge.  After about 50% of charging, I removed the power cord and inserted it again.  Now the battery couldnt resume charging.  I again had to shut down the laptop and repeat the above steps of inserting battery after switching on the laptop without battery.  Only then the battery would resume charging. After this, I decided to allow the battery to charge to 100%. But, the charging remained stuck at 99% and could not fully charge the battery.  When I removed and reinserted the power cord, the same problem persisted of battery not resuming charging. Please help me with this problem.  I read on few forums about uninstalling microsoft ACPI which supposedly solves this issue.  However, ACPI returns back after I restart my laptop.I also tried switch...

A:LENOVO Y500 BATTERY NOT CHARGING AFTER USING LENOVO'S BATTERY GAUGE CALIBRATION

 
 
ADMIN Edit - While the original post below is marked as the solution, because service will be required if the battery will no longer charge after performing a battery reset, I am adding a Lenovo update here to confirm.   Normal operation will allow the battery to relearn its capacity characteristics when using the battery reset function.  Typically this is not needed in normal use..   Batteries are equipped with a safety feature that will permanently disconnect them (like a fuse) if cell imbalance or an internal short is detected.   This tends to be statistically infrequent, but also normal, and would require a battery replacement.  (Batteries have a 1 year warranty).   This battery feature can also  produce similar results to what is being discussed in the thread, so it should first be considered by service.   This particular  forum discussion also involves a situation that could affect a limited number of systems, and could lead service to replace the system board during warranty.  
 
If your system experiences these symptoms, please contact service during the warranty period.

Battery Issue - Lenovo V570 (Laptop) - Battery Model L09S6Y02

First off I for the most part do not use the battery. It is normally detached from the laptop. I only attach it to periodically charge it and test prior existing charges' performance.

O.K. here is the problem. I attach battery attachment, computer does not make it to the window screen more often than not. When it does, it freezes at the please wait loading screen.

I rarely use the battery at all, but I want all my equipment up and functional. It's life should still be good for I periodically recharge it. I think since I've had the laptop I've only recharged it a total of 6 or 7 times and that's been a year or so.

I, for the moment at least have the battery working power adapter attached. What did I do? I uninstalled Avast (freeware version) ?

I learned from prior experience that running two of any system utility software can cause problems, but it normally restricts itself to what it is protecting. Then I remembered: "If you remove the possible whatever is left however in probable must be the truth."

Next phase of testing is test the battery on it's own.

The battery status toggles between not charging, not used, and unauthorized battery after it was calibrated using one key. Before that, the battery was working perfectly, lasting close to 5 hours. Now the laptop shuts off when unplugged and the battery status is constantly changing. I've had this laptop for approximately a year now and it was unused and left in an unopened box for the first 8 months.

So HP laptops have a tendency of overheating... and when they do, they power off immediately. This is NOT that issue. When I'm working solely on my battery (no AC charger) My laptop will turn off in maybe 45 minutes... I keep an eye on the battery level and it never drops to below 20% when this occurs. The laptop isn't burning hot and no error/warning messages are displayed (and no beeps).... Just poof power off. Ive downloaded the newest HP support assistant and ran the battery test and it said it was fine.I've tried to the manual calibration (since Support assistant isn't giving me the option to calibrate it) where I do the diagnostic logic (F2) and run the Hard Drive test on Battery until the laptop dies... Plugged in the charger and restarted.. what do you know, battery was at 40%... on the battery battery level button is showing half-charge.... So what do I do when the laptop is saying battery is good - not replace... How do I force that calibration? Something is wrong in that the power is dying half-way through the power cycle. Apprecaite any advice!

Despite the manufacturer's claim of 7 hours battery life on my Lenovo Ideapad 320S-14IKB - 81BN (S/N: MP1CHQTJ), I only get around 3-4 hours. This is with light usage, Reddit, a little bit of youtube etc. CPU usage was mostly around 0-5% the entire time. This was with the max CPU state in power settings reduced from 100% to 85%. However, I do have the screen at 100% brightness. As a different test, I tried doing (almost) nothing (apart from keeping the screen bright), and got 6 hours out of the battery. Is there a simple solution to increase this? It's only a 30 Wh battery (2 cell). Maybe in the future, a 60 Wh (4 cell?) one will come out for this model?

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.

1. Laptop turns off without any warning, when the battery is low. There is no "low battery" indicator or anything of that sort. The laptop just turns off. This has been happening for over one and a half months now.2. The battery also lasts lesser time than what the battery indicator indicates (MUCH lesser). It has been a little over 2 years now since I purchased this laptop. Ofcourse it depends on my usage. But the battery indicator should suggest reasonably sensible "lasting" time right?

My laptop keeps turning itself of when it is on battery. It lasts about 20 minutes, but is getting shorter everytime.

The battery is not running out- when I turn it back on it has 50% charge normally.

It turns off as if it has no power- no warning, and when I turn it back on it reloads and everything is new, with documents and Internet sessions needing restoring.

How can I fix this? I don't think it is the battery, as it has charge when I turn it back on, and it only has 20% wear.

Thanks!
 

A:Laptop Randomly Turns Off When In Battery

Welcome to TSG!!

If it's truly random, it won't be the Power Management settings. Some laptops have a utility that enables you to "calibrate" your battery. It will fully charge, then fully discharge the battery, perhaps more than one cycle, to allow the laptop to "learn" the battery's capabilities and characteristics. Check and see if you can find such an app. Different manufacturers will give it different names. Also, check their Web site to see if it is a separate download.

Whenever I unplug my computer from its charging cord it automatically turns off. I was having this problem before, but replaced the battery with a brand new one. It was working fine and I broke in the battery by charging and discharging it fully for the first 3 cycles and the laptop was working well without power for the past week since I got it, other than taking a minute or so to respond to me pushing the power on button before working when it was not connected to the cord. Now this morning it switches off whenever I unplug it even though the battery says it is at 100% charge and still charging. But, the light on the side of my power port is on red/orange when I have it plugged in, but only when it's lid is closed and it is fully booted up. I checked on other forum answers and tried changing to different power saving plans and even switching all options to 'never' but nothing has worked.I also looked at the pins underneath my laptop where my battery should go to see if they are damaged. Two of them are on a different angle to the rest but I think this is how the laptop was built anyway? I dont want to move them incase it just makes the situation worse.What should I try next? I would like this fixed ASAP as I need this laptop for school and often don't have access to a power plug in class. Thankyou.

It DOESN'T do this when the charger is connected to the laptop and mains electricity. If the charger is connected to the laptop but not to the mains then the laptop will also turn itself on.
Any bright ideas?

This problem started 3 weeks ago.

When battery charge reaches 100% the AC LED indicator is turned off and the laptop runs from battery (decreasing it's performance even selecting High Performance power plan).
If the AC plug is disconnected and reconnected the AC LED indicator is turned on until battery is fully charged again, as soon as the battery is fully charged windows battery notification icon changes from "99% available (plugged in, charging)" to "Fully Charged" and then the AC is turned off and the laptop starts to run from battery again.

I didn't update any laptop specific software nor BIOS.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I want the laptop to run from AC when AC is plugged in, even if the battery is fully charged.

Thanks!

If there is not a setting in the advanced power settings, pull the battery out when not using it mobile...my laptop battery stays charged and on the shelf...

Hello, Two weeks after my one year warranty was up my laptop started shutting off when the battery was around 30-40%.  I checked the battery using the HP Support Assistant Diagnostic Check and it continues to say the "Primary battery is OK."  I've also noticed that since this started happening the battery won't fully charge.  It only charges to 90-94% then shows "94% available (plugged in, not charging)."  I used to unplug the battery until the battery saver (set at 20%) would turn on then I'd fully charge it and repeat.   I use my laptop for work so I'm usually plugged in 8-14 hours a day for five days a week.  I shut it off every night as well.  Am I missing something or is this the battery life I should get?  Did I use it too much?  I purposefully got a long life battery because for work. I found the article below which sounds similar to my situation and wanted to ask anyway. https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-Pavilion-15-notebook-sudden... This is my first HP and I didn't have battery issues like this with any previous laptop doing the same amount of work/usage for at least 2+ years.  Is this the way HP's are?  Am I supposed to expect this type of performance out of my laptop? Thanks for any help/suggestions/words of wisdom.

I have an XPS 15z. About a month ago the battery stopped charging and after some quick googling I determined it was likely a charging jack problem. So I ordered a new one from Dell via Amazon (my laptop is several years old and no longer under warranty), and in the meantime used another laptop. Today finally had free time to install new charging jack.
Good news - the new jack works! Bad news - the laptop will only turn on if the battery is disconnected. If I try to power on with the battery connected, the charging light on the laptop flashes red (usually signals low battery/not plugged in), the laptop makes a brief startup noise, and then dies. This happens even with AC adapter plugged in. With AC adapter plugged in but no battery the laptop turns on normally. I've tried discharging static (unplugging battery and adapter and holding power button for 10 secs) but this does nothing.
Any ideas? Would a connected dead battery prevent the laptop from powering on? Did not using the laptop for several weeks do something to the battery? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi Whatthebattery
Thanks for writing to us. 
Please try another battery if possible.
Without the battery, with the ac adapter connected power up the machine, post powering on connect the battery, let us know if any changes with this procedure. Also check if the battery charges. If yes, then update the BIOS from support.euro.dell.com and let us know how it goes.  
Check in BIOS the status for ac adapter and battery as well and keep us posted.
Do try this battery on another machine if feasible.
Do provide us your system tag#, email address and name via private message,by clicking on my name in blue and then select send a private message
Regards

Hello,  I've had a problem with my 500-14ISK where the screen will instantly turn off when running on battery. This happens in the bios and withing the OS.  As far as I can tell it is not just dimming the screen/backlight. It is slowly driving me mad not being able to move around with a laptop. So far I have tried the following.  Reinstalled Windows 10Updated Intel and Nvidia driversUpdate Intel ME softwareReinstalled latest bios (D3CN35WW)Rolled back to all previous available bios versions (D3CN28WW, D3CN34WW, D3CN35WW)Downgraded Intel & Nvidia driversDowngraded Intel ME SoftwareBooted to Debian live disk to test same behaviour. Tried a different chargerSearched the many forums posts with people that have similar issues, saying to try a linked Intel ME version or trying new windows profiles even though this happens outside of windows. Let the battery die completely Turned on conservation mode for the battery with the AC plugged in. The screen then turns off as it tries to run off battery.Ran the Lenovo system update toolsRan the Lenovo diagnostics tools. All OK.Searched the Lenovo Reddit subreddit to see other people with similar problems and no answer. Have I missed anything?  I can't believe support for a product can just blankly end like this when it can be seen that a continued number of people are having a problem with the laptop which still falls within EU warranties.

Hello guys and girls,

I have an issue since some times that I really don't know how to solve.
In November 2013 I bought in Poland, where I live, a nice TOSHIBA SATELLITE L50-A-16Q (PSKJNE).
On this computer, although, something is constantly causing me problems: *very often the power shuts down suddenly while on battery*, even if the app "TOSHIBA PC health monitor" which also monitors CPU temperature, does not show any sign of criticality.

However, there is something abnormal going on: I have noticed thanks to this software that, every time I unplug the charger, the fan speed goes to zero, apparently putting the system cooling at risk. And I know from the manual that if the processor temperature reaches a critical level, the system automatically shuts down.

Is there anyway to fix the problem in order not to shut it down suddenly, making me lose data while on battery?
Maybe turning on fan speed, somehow, while on this mode?

Thank you every one very much for your contribution, in advance.

Kind Regards,

Matteo

Hi Matteo

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. It would be interesting to know exact battery capacity when this happen.

Using advanced power options you can change many important values so I recommend you to test all this. Try to use notebook with power saver power plan and lower CPU activity.
I don't know if the CPU or any other hardware component reach critical temperature level but please be careful how do you use your machine. Cooling fans must be free and your notebook must be able to ?take a breath?.

Try to test usage with different power plans and using it on the desk only, not placed on the knees or your bed.

By the way: cooling fan activity can be defined in advanced power settings > Toshiba power saver > cooling method. Check it out.
