Battery charge light flashes 5 seconds then nothing

Q: Battery charge light flashes 5 seconds then nothing

I have a Gateway w730-k8x, running XP. I ran the battery down, then plugged in power cord, but got no action. Took battery out, still wouldn't turn on with power plugged in. Waited a day (traveling). Tried again and am getting only 5 seconds of flashing battery charge light then nothing. Again with battery out, no response. Any ideas?

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 just started happening recently. The power indicator light (near the power plug) does not turn on and Windows does not recognize when the adapter is plugged in; the power icon and cusomized power saving "on battery" behavior reflect that. HOWEVER, the battery does charge. The "lightning bolt" charging light on the front between HDD and system power lights comes on and the battery recharges if not at 100%. Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this? Is it more likely a Windows or hardware problem? The BIOS does not have the power adapter test mentioned here, and I could not find the software download for the Smart Adapter functionality (this laptop was installed with clean, non-OEM OS, so any OEM software had to be added manually). Thanks in advance,Kyle

Hello people...>!

I think I had been trying to fix this laptop for the last few months but was really stil not finding the root of the problem. Basically i had a problem with being able to charge my laptop when on or off. When it is on, the charge light will keep blinking but when it is off, it will flicker every 7 seconds. I had remove the battery and tried with the ac only and it does the same thing.

I also had replaced the dc jack and problem was not solved. My only guess is the ac adapter but I wonder if anyone have had the same issue like I am and hoping it was the ac adapter. I really do not want to buy an ac adapter and later on to find that it was not it but the motherboard so it will be a waste of money.'

Any suggestions or inputs will be appreciated.
 

A:Compaq R4000: charge light flicker every 7 seconds

You are definitely right...! Finally, it works again after I bought a new AC adapter. So the real culprit is the AC adapter. Anyone who has the same symptoms as I did, please make sure you suspect your ac adapter first before tearing apart your laptop. Good luck!!

A:B50 - Won't Power On, Battery light flashes

Hi Mike_Aych,
 
Welcome to the community,
 
We'd like to clarify is the laptop still turning on while the battery is on the laptop? Is the light from the battery blinking? Have you also tried using a different charger? We'd like to isolate the issue. Are you using a B50-70 or 80? Looking forward to your reply.

Hi, Guy at work gave me his vaio to fit a new keyboard, its a vgn bx51xp. Keys were missing and some not working.
Iv had it for months now as they keyboards are very expensive! but he decided to pay the 60 gbp for one.

Now the laptops been turned off for months, but it worked fine, so i just replaced the keyboard, and when its plugged in, the battery light flashes twice constantly. Will not power up, charged for couple of hours, and no charge is in the battery. There is charge coming out of the charge pins and adapter etc have been tested and are all outputting correct voltage. I opened up the laptop to have a look at the power board and couldn't see anything but i was out of options.

When i put it back together i couldn't get a light, Which turned out to be the faulty dimm socket, Lights back on now after resetting (how annoying when 2 things go and you have no idea).

My question is, shouldn't the laptop turn on off a\c without battery? as i get no response, which is annoying, as i don't wanna buy a new battery if the laptops kaput! (Already put 60 of own money in the keyboard and can't charge him if it doesn't work!)

If anyones got any advice? or knows if this particular laptop doesn't run off a/c without the battery would greatly help!

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

I have recently gained a Tecra A7 but without a battery or power adapter.
I purchased a power adapter (15V, 6.0A) and plugged it in.

Whenever I try to power the laptop, the only response I receive is the battery light flashing orange 11-12 times.
Note: I do not have any battery plugged in.

Could this be the problem?

Does anyone know a solution for this problem I'm experiencing?

Kind Regards,
Cheers,

A:Tecra A7 - battery light flashes amber many times

Hello

If there is no hardware problems notebook must run with AC power supply only and without battery.
Of course we don?t know if this notebook is defective or not but fact is that you use, according Tecra A7 specification, right AC adapter.
If you can see flashing power led only it can be that power supply electronic is defective and need to be checked by authorized service provider.

Sorry but on this virtual way it is not easy to say more than that.

MY laptop is a HP Touchscreen. It is only 1 year old. The battery warranty just ran out. The red light constantly blinks, and the battery hold no charge, and will no longer charge. This was after it was always getting very warm. I had to purchase a stand that had three fans in it so that it would not shut itself down every hour. Since then it seemed to be working ok, however now I am getting emails to pay 120.00 for an extended plan, a battery costs 98.00 , and a new laptop with the same and better features only costs 249.00. Why have you made disposable laptops?? It is cheaper to buy a brand new one and use the new battery, and have an entire extra laptop. My Compaq overheated and I replaced the hard drive. That laptop was only 2 years old, and now it will not turn on either. I am out two laptops. I am not sure if my battery is on the recall however it seems to be fitting the bill. Can you please help me. What are the first steps that I need to take to answer the recall as I need this work conputer to run my small business assisting Veterans with business development and contracting with the Federal and State Government entities through the VOSB and SDVOSB programs.

I acquired a used HP Compaq 8701w laptop a few months ago.
I recently noticed that the battery charge light doesn't come on. (I didn't notice this initially because I set it up as a desktop with exterior monitors and never unplugged it from the dock...I wanted to use it in my bedroom last night so I became aware of the issue then)

I ran a check on the battery and it tested good.

The software shows charge is 100% but when I unplug the laptop from the docking station it will not run off battery.

I tested the battery with HP Battery Check and it tested good.

I tried the following solution I found on HP forums:
shut down
pull battery
hold power for 30 seconds
plug into AC
power back up
re-insert battery
Didn't Work.
I tried an uninstall of the ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery driver with no change at reboot.

I also tried using a different battery that I know to be discharged and the software shows it at 0% so it's not my software incorrectly reading a full battery.

The charge indicator did not come on for either battery I put in.

Laptop runs fine off AC power plug

A:HP Laptop won't run off battery/charge light not coming on

Hi kannmoore and welcome to TSG.

It looks like there's a problem inside the laptop. To check try charging a known working battery overnight.

If the above doesn't work can you power the laptop directly without using the Docking Station ? If you can try that as well to see if it makes any difference.

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!

Anyways, i got a pentium 4 support psu hooked up, and some pc-800/8 ram (it takes pc-800, would it work with pc-800/8?), and powered it on, and it just makes some strange beep code, followed by 1-1-1-1 beep code, but it dosen't post or show the bios, just a blank screen. So i reset the bios by taking out the battery for about 8 hours to ensure there was no charge left, and powered it back on, now it does not beep, but the power light just blinks, and still no screen.

RELEVANCY SCORE 58

Need REAL Tech Help.
Was struck HARD with Virtumonde Malware after cleaning, both CD-RW Drive Quit.
When disk is inserted DRIVE light flashes 25 to 20 seconds then goes out - clicking on drive indicates "no disk". No Clicking sound from drive. Simply will not read disk.
RE-installed Both and my HP Drive started working but my Sony DRU840A RW (Reads/Writes all formats) is showing up in My Computer and Windows Explorier as DVD-RAM (F) were it should be DVD-RW (F). Runing Windows XP SP3, HP Media 3Ghz Intel, 1G Ram, HP DVD-RW 640, Sony DRU 840A.
Tried Re-Install of Drivers, System Power off can not find problem. Both drives use standard Windows Driver (same) since HP is working drive is apparently OK.
Screenshot included as screenshot.jpg file attached.
This appears as same unresolved problem as: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/662012-dvd-rom-rw-showing-up.html

Hi there, frustrating problem of Lenovo not being able to boot up. The light will flash, but no action. - If I can hold the power button for 15 seconds the fans will spin for a few seconds.- I've opened the back and removed the battery- checked all connections- I've tried running of AC adapter- tried removing ram Anyone got any suggestions? Removing the battery did work the first time (thought problem solved), but it happened again on next boot and it hasn't worked this time. I was advised to reset the bios but can't find the battery, seriously hidden little sucker... Thanks.
