The battery charging failure above indicates that either the AC adapter or the laptop itself has a problem. In order to

isolate the faulty one, first you need to test the AC adapter with a voltmeter. If the AC adapter has a normal output

voltage, then probably the power jack of the motherboard is defective. In this case, you need to replace or just resolder the

power jack of the laptop motherboard.

* Trouble: After the laptop battery arrives at vital period, it discharges very quickly

Possible Causes and Solutions:

The battery charging failure above indicates bad battery. Due to old age, laptop battery sometimes act abnormally, like for

example, the symptoms above. Laptop battery manufacturers believe that a typical life span should be somewhere between 2 to 3

years. If your battery already reaches this stage, the only solution is to replaced that battery.

located in the system tray the remaining battery charge and the computer shows that it is charging. But when you unplug the

AC adapter, the laptop turns off. The probable causes for these trouble are maybe the battery is not seated properly or the

battery contacts got dirty because of some of dirt or something. If these might be the fault, try to use a toothbrush and

scrub the battery terminal that connects the battery to the mainboard of the laptop and reconnect the battery and make sure

that it is properly seated. If these methods doesn't help, most likely the battery is already busted due to old age, try to

replace the battery with a working or new one. If replacing the battery still doesn't solve the issue, obviously the trouble

has to do with the motherboard. Perhaps the battery charging circuit of the motherboard is damaged or not working. In this

case, you'll have to do a component level repair on the motherboard or replace the whole motherboard.
