battery failure, battery test not running

Q: battery failure, battery test not running

Dear HP,From two months ago, the message "The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low." appeared before the startup and the battery didn't (and doesn't) charge. Or it signals that is charging but once I plug out the charger, the battery doesn't even last for a minute or it simply says "plugged in, not charging".I tried to run more than once the battery test in the System Diagnostics,that is described in your tech support, but it doesn't run (it doesn't pass further than 1% and I left it hours for run). I also tried the battery test in the HP Support Assistant, but once I start it, it says right afterwards "battery test stopped working" and it doesn't finish the test.I would like to know your opinion for a possible solution.Thank you for your help

After a round of Windows updates, I went to turn on my laptop and recieved the "Primary internal battery (601)" error.  After this screen, however, Windows would not load.  I have tried taking the battery out and 'draining the charge',  and starting up the computer plugged directly to AC with no battery.  Windows still does not load.  The start-up test in the diagnostics menu said the battery needed calibration, however when I go to run the battery test, it gets to "waiting for battery to charge" and exits out of the test without giving me any results at all.  Currently when turning on the computer I no longer get the "primary internal battery" error, it just goes directly to a black screen with blinking cursor.  Any help is appreciated, I'm completely at a loss here!

Hello, first all the facts: Model: Pavilion TS 11Year bought: 2013product Number: E2V68EA#ABDBattery test result: primary battery failed - replace (42)Error code: 0GF2MR - 6MW8H9 - XD7WXF - C0A503 The problem: I have noticed the very first time the battery did not fully charge up to 100% app. 1 1/2 years ago. Then it always stayed at about 75%. I made several battery tests, yet everything seemed to be fine. Two days ago, I noticed the battery was down to 7% - not charging even though it should be. I run some battery tests again and the error stated above suddenly came up. The HP battery test via the support center sated everything was okay, yet as I googled the primary battery failed message, I kind of got alarmed.  There is no warranty left and the touchscreen had to be disabled a couple of months ago, because it was not working properly as well. I hope for advises - does it actually make sense to try to repair it? Can this problem be repaired - as far as I understand, the primary battery means changing the removable battery won't help at all? Best wishes,Kristina

I recently turned on my laptop after a month and a half to find that the battery is at 0% and won't charge anymore. I ran the HP system diagnostic and it came up with failure ID - QCQ7WJ-7A18GN-MFPWLJ-C0BH03. The battery was working perfectly fine prior to having left for vacation and now will no longer charge and the diagnostic is telling me to replace the battery. I just wanted to know whether there was any warranty or protetion or any solutions to this problem.  Thank you.

My Dell inspiron 3542 laptop had a very good battery life(>6 hours), but today morning it showed an error message saying  "Battery has experienced permanent failure and needs to be replaced." I updated the BIOS from A3 to A10, but it didn't help! The PC starts only if its plugged in and the battery charge is constant at 82%. What should I do?

A:Battery not charging, message says "Battery has experienced permanent failure"

It's quite possible your battery did suffer a failure; the Lithium-Ion chemical reaction may (which produces electricity) have finally broken down.
First thing to try is to run Dell's diagnostics. When you first power it on, press F2 to run the ePSA Diagnostics & see if any failures occurred.
Have you tried powering the laptop on with the power cord and battery, then once it's loaded removing the power cord to see if it stays on?
Another thing to try: remove the power cord & battery from the laptop, then hold the power button down for about 10 seconds. Then reconnect the power cord, power it on, then reconnect the battery.
From here, once it's on, you can try removing the battery again to see if it stays powered on or leave the cord connected to see if the battery begins charging.

Hope this helps!

After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."
Shockingly none worked that I found.
Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.
A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.
To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)
Worked with an off brand battery also.
Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.
Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.
Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!

Hey I have an old Inspiron B130. Seems the battery is bad, or maybe it's just not charging, or maybe it's just not working in some other way? My question is how can I test?
I don't want to just rush out and buy a new battery without knowing if the laptop battery subsystem is working. The laptop came from a person who "claims" that the battery is actually a new one. I can't verify, so I want to see if I can test the laptop itself.
I wonder if there are wiring diagrams or something where I can just test a few of the pins. Or I wonder if the pins are testable at all without a battery plugged in?

How can I make sure the battery subsystem works before I buy a new battery?

A:Test battery and test output from laptop?

If you can't find any diagrams, just get a multitester, and with power off and pc unplugged, take out the battery and find pos / neg terminals on the computer against the chassis (unless they are labelled on the battery by chance?). Once you know which terminal is which, put the battery in the computer, let it charge (does the charge light come on? I should have asked that before). for a couple hours, unplug it and check the power. You may not see the full 11 volts (at least that's what I think the battery is on that model), but if it's charging, you should always have at least some residual power...

Is there any program (free or trial) that can test the battery life of my laptop?
BTW: I have a Dell 700m with 65 Whr battery.

A:Laptop Battery Test

Use it until the shutdown, record the time. BTW, if this are Li-Ion, read this:

Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)
This is the current "latest and greatest" technology for batteries. Li-Ion gives exceptional capacity for its size and weight, and does not suffer from the memory effect. This means that you can top up the charge whenever it is convenient. The only real drawback of Li-on is that they are expensive. You should avoid completely discharging Li-Ion batteries

Been suspicious of laptop batteries performance for many years. Purchased Dell Studio17 and booted first time on 8/26/2010. Performed the recommendations for charging the battery and a 2 week break in period. Performed a discharge calibration and battery lasted 3.5 hours. After 10 months started receiving battery warning messages. Messages have progressively become more dire. On 8/26/2012 at exactly 8 A.M. received the dreaded "Battery Dead Will Not Charge" message. Installed third party battery manager, uninstalled the ACPI, and booted without the battery. Set all battery notifications, actions, and reserves to zero. Shut down laptop and charged battery overnight. Next morning booted, installed ACPI, inserted battery, unplugged power and started stop watch.

Battery monitor sez (sic) zero charge and battery lasts for 3.5 hours.

As I have suspected, the ACPI is calendar driven, not physical calibration of the battery. All of its warnings are bogus.

Now I am trying to figure out how to wipe clean the ACPI to reset the monitoring for the specific battery. Advice will be appreciated.

A:Long Term Laptop Battery Test

The battery may be defective. Modern laptop batteries have a chip inside them that reports their condition. If that chip is damaged or defective it will not report correctly.
You might want to check that possibility before playing with your critical systems.

Hey Guys I have a problem with my Laptop. HP Pavilion zv5120us Notebook PC.

It cut off one night when I was asleep. I'm assuming maybe the battery died. The Power Chord was pluged into so I dunno. Now it won't turn on, but when I have just the battery in and I hit the power button. If you listen closley you can hear something inside the Laptop Turn on. Not sure what it is, maybe HD fan? Now when I plug the Power Chord into the Laptop the noise Stops. And when I unplug it, the noise starts up again. Also when I take the battery out the noise stops. And I can put the battery back in and the noise doesn't come on until I hit the power button again. Is there Something Wrong with my Power Jack? Is my battery just not accepting a charge? I don't really want to go spend 150 dollars on a new battery. Anyone have an idea of whats wrong? Thanks in Advance.

A:Battery Failure??????

power chord? (does it play a tune?) I assume you mean cord!

Laptop batteries need to discharge. Don't leave a laptop plugged in all the time. Discharge your battery fully at least a few times a month. If your computer runs without the battery on AC, the battery is most likely dead. Leaving a computer plugged in all the time "cooks" the battery and shortens battery life. Laptop batteries are meant to be exercised.

You can buy generic batteries cheap. (although it might void your warranty if you still have one.)

I have an Asus X550L laptop. Recently my battery life went from four hours to roughly two hours only. I did not like it so I ended up ordering another battery. 

Link of where I got the battery: www.newegg.com/.../Product.aspx

After I got the battery, the instruction told me to calibrate it, so here is what happened.

>Charged to 100%.
>Used my laptop until it automatically turns off.
>Charge again.
... Repeat.

Here's a few problems.
1. After my laptop died and I plug in the charger, I started using my laptop as it's charging.
2. The first two times, when it hit low battery status, it actually warn me about the low battery.

HOWEVER, starting the third time, the laptop just shuts off on its own. Then new problems arise.

1. The battery won't charge up to 100% anymore.
2. Automatically shuts off at around 35-40% battery.

I tried to change the battery plan settings and such, but nothing worked. I then tried my old battery again. I realized that although the battery life is short, but my old battery actually charges up to 100%, and it gives me low battery warning at 10%, instead of shutting off randomly.

I don't think it's the laptop overheating or too dirty since my old battery works perfectly fine. 

Help please!

Thank you!

I have owned my HP Pavilion 13 (J3T78EA#ABU) for a little over two years. At the beginning of this summer it was working perfectly with a good battery life - I could watch entire movies without the need for external power. It then didn't get used for 2 months, I come home and it won't load up without being plugged in. Now it no longer charges and only works connected to a power source. Given it was just sat on a desk for 2 months, I don't see what could have cause this sudden change in its working ability. Also, when I do turn it on it says there is a battery failure and the system must reboot. So loading up my laptop, a process which used to take 30 seconds, now can take up to several minutes. This has also caused my date and time to often be wrong. Since I can't replace the battery (it's internal) I don't know how to solve this, so would be grateful for any advice! Thank you,Annie

Failure Id. RGBTSX-6Q8886-MFGJWK-C08Q03My battery was working just fine until all of a sudden it stopped charging fully; it would stop roughly around 79% and it would take forever to move up just 1%. However, once off the charger, the battery would run out normally and not run out within minutes. It just doesn't charge fully. I ran the battery diagnosis over and over again and one time it would say the battery was fine, working normally, and immediately after it would say it needed to be replaced. Through HP Support Assistant the error presented as REO0W, but when I did the diagnosis through the HP System Diagnostics it was RGBTSX-6Q8886-MFGJWK-C08Q03. My computer is fairly recent.

I have a Dell Dimension 5100 in which new clock batteries only last for a few days if the computer is turned off at night. Restarting requires resetting the clock, which then functions properly with the existing battery till the computer is turned off and later restarted. Is there supposed to be a trickle charge going to the battery while the computer is running that might be malfunctioning? Or, is there perhaps a voltage drain when it is off? I'm baffled.

I read somewhere that I have to update the BIOS but it won't update unless the battery is charged at least 10%. Someone also suggested that Windows 8.1 is causing the problem. I haven't even started using this laptop and it's already giving me a *** ton of problems. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys! :)

Hi there,

I'm having dell inspiron 3521 laptop. My battery is 4 cell (40WAh) and recently it was permanently failed. So, i decided to replace it with new one. The question is if i replace my 4 cell battery with 6 cell battery, will it leads to any problems? Can some one please help me to resolve this.
Thanks in advance.

A:What will happen when i replace my dell 40WAh battery with 60WAh battery for Inspiron 3521?

As long as the battery is otherwise compatible -- and you realize it will increase the weight AND the size of the notebook (while the 4-cell likely fits entirely inside the system, the 6-cell will protrude from the back of the system), you will be fine.  There's also a big reason (safety among them) why OEM batteries cost more than third-party knockoff units, if that's a consideration.

My Dell laptop will charge and operate for several hours off a new 6000 MAh battery but the icon in the tray inidcates that it is always on line power. Although both the CD and floppy drive work when installed in a bay the system not indicate that they are present. I have updated the bios from Dell but that does not help. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Still under warranty, isn't it? Call Dell for a repair trip.

Just received a new Dell battery for my laptop.  The battery icon starts out at 100% and time remaining at about 3. 5 hours left, then within 1 minute the time remaining levels off to about 2 hours left.  The battery showing time remaining is jumping up and down.  I am only using the computer for the internet.  No CD or DVD or gaming.  At best I get 1.5 hours out of a charge.  Is this normal?  Or did Dell send me a bad battery?

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.

I have an XPS 9550 6th Gen running Windows 10 (Just over 1 year, out of warranty).
The issue is when the charge plug is plugged in and hovering over the battery icon it says that battery is charging.  However the battery is not charging but discharging until the laptop switches off.  The only way for the battery to charge again is to deplete the battery until the laptop is unresponsive when the power button is pushed to switch lap top on.  Once there is no residual power in the battery it will start charging again to 100% after which the cycle repeats, discharge.
Things I have tried.
Latest Bios update - no change
Another A/C charger - worked ok for a few days
Replaced battery - no change
Bios settings - reset to default (info related to battery and A/C charge reports all good)
F12 - Dell diagnostics, reports all good
When Battery is disconnected the laptop works normally
The laptop charge socket seems tight and secure
I have searched the internet exhaustively but have not found this same issue reported.  The only feasible way I can use the laptop is to disconnect the battery.
Can anyone suggest anything?
I would also like to disable the battery instead of having to open it up to disconnect, is this possible?
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks
