Having problems with your Acer Aspire 6920 Notebook PC ?

Battery meter is low, even though computer is always plugged in

\015 Whenever I unplug my laptop from the power cord and use it without it being plugged in, the battery meter says that my battery only has 5 minutes left and that I should plug in if I don't want to lose my work. The funny part is that I keep my computer plugged in for a few hours before unplugging it, so the battery should be fully charged (and the meter says it's at 100% when it's plugged in). Also,even though the meter says that I only have 5 minutes left of power, I really have more time than that (it'll shut off maybe 30 minutes or so after the warning).What's going on with my computer? Do I need to replace my battery? My lap top is only a little over a year old.. why would this be happening?Please help!\015

Answers :

My first reaction would be that you have simply worn the battery out already and it can no longer hold a charge. Discharging and re-charging constantly will do that even in a year. Or leaving it plugged in 24/7 for week at a time can hurt it as well.

Sometimes if you run it all the way down to nothing/as dead as possible and then charge it back up it will "re-train" the battery where dead and fully charged are.

In the case of this battery it sounds like it's just worn out. Sometimes turning off extra features like bluetooth if it has it or the WiFI card along with dimming the screen when possible will get a few more minutes out of it.

I'm going through something similar with my laptop right now. I found a "universal laptop battery" and just carry that around now (amazon is a good place for such batteries). It was only about $30 or so. Sorry it's not good news!
Hi,\015\012I recommend you to try refreshing your battery by doing this step for 3 -5 times\015\0121.Make a fully charge it take around 10 Hours.\015\0122.Unplug your adapter and use the battery until it fully finish.Off by itself.\015\0123.Repeat step1-2 for 3-5 times and see it again

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total). I got an error about it not recognizing my ac adapter (the original ac adapter from Dell that it came with) & the battery wouldn't charge. Now the battery is dead. The light on the ac adapter is green even when plugged into the laptop. When ac is plugged in to the laptop the battery icon flashes blue. When I power the laptop up, the battery icon flashes red and I get the low battery warning.

There are several possibilities. 1st and most probable is that the power module has failed, and by that it could have a wire broken in the part from the brick to the computer. It will then give just enough power to let the computer see it, but when i ... Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook
