Computer laptop closing drank himself and the battery goes from fully charged low battery in a short period of time?

Hi I have a question about my laptop Toshiba Satellite. I've had it for almost 2 years and it worked fine up until just recently, my laptop stops itself and I thought before that this could be due to a heating problem but when it stops my laptop is not yet hot. I have installed new programs or anything again for that matter so I'm honestly confused? What's wrong with that? I also keep my laptop on a laptop computer fan to keep over heating.

Hello

It might possible that the battery is going bad.

However, try the following steps:

Method 1:

See the link, then run the Fixit.

  • Your laptop is plugged in and the battery won't charge. __

    MY LAPTOP WILL ONLY START WHEN CONNECTED TO THE UNIT FROM THE WALL BUT NOT SE LOAD AT ALL. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO LOAD A NIGHT & STILL NO CHARGE WHAT SO EVER. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THIS? WHAT IS MY HARDWARE?

    The battery would be my first guess that the PC works directly on the charger - but it could also be the program to load the battery and connections.  Remove and replace the battery to make sure that the connections are solid.  If you have another battery (or access to another battery, you can try to see if the problem persists or if he disappears - then you will be very well known.)  In any case, if this is not possible, I recommend that take you it to a repair shop computer (or return it to the manufacturer) for the diagnosis, repair or replacement.

    I don't know any way to test this situation without special equipment or replacement parts.  You can always try to re - install the operating system to rule out a software problem (if you want to do business with what this implies in terms of data backup and reinstall applications and reconfigure the settings and others).  Without info on the manufacturer, brand and model (and operating system), I can't help you more in this option.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Computer laptop dv5 off suddenly when the battery charge reaches46%

    First of all, thank you in advance for any help possible.

    Of heres my portable computer Spec

    Intel (r) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU P8400 2.26 GHz 2.27 GHz

    3.00 GB RAM

    Windows Vista.

    Problem:

    Well my laptop around 1 year and something weird started happening a few days back... whenever my laptop unplugged and reached 46% battery charge it suddenly turns OFF... after that whenever I try to start to just the screen where it tells u whether to start windows normally or not... and turns off again... the only way to pitch it up is to plug the adapter sector and then it starts normally. I tried to calibrate the battery using the bios, but this option is not there in my laptop... try manually is not useful because it disables always when it reached 46%... so I can not entirely drain my battery.

    someone has an idea of what is my problem?

    No its is no longer under warranty may be 1 year and a month I think.

    Then replacing the battery is what you need to do. You should be able to get a replacement battery has a reasonable price online. There is no obligation to buy an original HP battery.

Once done, insert the usb key into the laptop, you want to fix, start by using selected peripheral USB device as MBR, follow these steps on screen, you can repair a corrupt Windows Vista it or restore to a previous restore point.

  • Computer laptop closed? Fan overheating?

    Hi all.

    I have read many topics on this forum about on any laptop fan not working not, laptop computer overheating or the laptop apparently randomly stopping.

    I had this problem for about three months. I tried supporting the laptop so the fan (stupidly positioned in the middle of the base of the laptop!) could get air. He was not arrested, but it was ridiculous to have to raise my laptop everywhere wherever I was going, and fan was also ridiculously strong.

    I took my laptop to a doctor and it turns out that there was a fault with the chip on the motherboard that controls the fan. It caused the fan not work properly, causing overheating and computer laptop closed.

    I set myself and my laptop is now nice and quiet and I don't have to support it and it is not closed.

    Sorry if this is bad news! Hope you can get your laptop fixed!

    [Edited by: admin]

    Bad news. Anyway thanks for the info.

  • New laptop password AC power to the battery when you play a game.

    I got an IdeaPad P580 (i7, HDD 750 GB, 8 GB of ram, nvidia gt 630 m) a few weeks ago. A week ago I started having this problem where whenever I play a game, he's going off the AC power and the battery or vacillates between the two.

    He did this in Grand Theft Auto IV, Fallout: New Vegas and same Minecraft. Sometimes even outside of the games, but this is rare. After closing a game once, he would be off AC for a few seconds every time I opened a new tab in my browser!

    It doesn't matter what mode of energy that I use. The latest graphics drivers are installed. No matter if I use the Nvidia card or disable it in the bios and use the integrated Intel graphics card. I have tried everything I can think; I plugged the AC adapter into a wall directly instead of a surge protector, etc..

    When the laptop is, there are three lights on the front under the touchpad. The two left are usually, but sometimes when it produces in the Middle it turns red.

    If I remove the battery and just use the AC, the laptop just shut off after a second or two in the real game.

    Someone at - it ideas? Nothing at all, even if you think it's a long shot. It of frustrating to buy a new laptop and then happen, especially since the problem with my old laptop has been playing games would cut (which was overheated, which appears not to be as it is not hot).

    Hmm. you have no overclock your right to gt630?

    cutting like that usually means not enough power is supplied by the power brick, or the connection is loose.

    How many watts is the power brick?

    If the power is firmly connected, first thing to do is call lenovo and ask them to send you a new power brick.

    If the problem persists, you may have a bad mother power connector. It could be opening itself, or the connector on the motherboard.

    How many times you plug and unplug the power cord? and you do it with force? If you are not sweet, the brackets that hold the power port may crack.

  • Windows 7 and the battery error "consider replacing your battery".

    In Windows 7, I received an error message saying "Consider replacing your battery" "there is a problem with your battery, so your computer might suddenly turns off".                                                                   Any Solution for this

    Hello

    The battery may actually need to be replaced.

    -----------------------------------------------------

    References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

    Check with support from the manufacturer of their books online and the drivers and their forums system
    (as applicable) for known issues. Some manufacturer issued BIOS and other updates to help the battery
    problems.

    =================================================================

    Other information that might help:

    Control Panel control - plan change Options - power plans - power - advanced settings
    Parameters for the drainage and the use of parameters (this is how much to use and not how much or how)
    long to load).

    In fact, what causes a lot of wear on a battery empties it too low on several occasions. With today
    systems overload are not a problem.

    Here are some tips to help and troubleshoot battery issues.

    Old battery? Unplug the power to the computer - remove the battery and clean the contacts with a pencil
    eraser (do not use this, if your battery is fine slots - just clean up the edges of the knife which fit in)
    them and be careful). Batteries are old, or it could be a problem with the computer.
    Check with the support of the machine system, and many of them have on line forums.

    New Lithium-Ion type battery usually last longer if you do not unload their less than 30%
    However on a laptop that not extend their life a lot. Best is to use the a/c adapter
    When this is possible.

    I use the free version of BatteryBar to monitor my battery. Click on the green button on the
    Yellow box on the right side of the page to download the latest stable version.

  • Satellite L755 - suddenly then turn off blinking of power and the battery LEDs

    In recent weeks, when using the laptop (Satellite L755 psk2ye) he died suddenly and the power and the battery leds start flashing simultaneously.

    It also takes place when charging the battery when the unit is off... then l must cut off the power and he'll be back... Although the problem sometimes occurs again after a few minutes hours or does not...

    Remove the battery and check if the same problem occur when you use laptops with power running.

    Please post comments.

  • My satellite phone battery does not light and the battery won't charge (rest on 2%)

    Basically, my laptop is 3 months old and I don't know why it's acting weird. First of all, when I bought the laptop in June 06... the first week the laptop has no power in battery mode. So I stopped using the battery mode and still had to use my power adapter to power my laptop.

    Now 4 weeks later, I removed the battery to the rear and put again. Guess what the battery started working. Now 2 months later the same problem occurs, only that this time after removing the battery to it still turn on and the battery says 2% and also fails to load.
    So I m stuck with my son again... can anyone help?

    Hello

    In my opinion the best solution is to confront your local dealer with this problem. If I were you I wouldn't waste time. Unit is fairly new, warranty still valid and unit should operate.

    Perhaps is there some problem with electronic supply power.

  • Unable to determine the type of AC power adapter. Your system will run more slowly and the battery won't charge.

    I get the error message is: AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will run more slowly and the battery won't charge.

    Hello
    (1) when you receive this error message?
    (2) what is the brand and model of your computer?
    (3) did you change on your computer before this problem?
    It seems that the adapter has gone wrong, I suggest you to connect another card and see if the problem still occurs.
    You can also contact the computer manufacturer for assistance on this issue.
