Having problems with your Medion (40010998) ?

Laptop crashes shortly after boot, power light rapidly blinks red.

\015 I'm having trouble booting my laptop. It's a Medion Akoya EX. I'm sure that the problem is my battery. Is this repairable or do I need to buy a new one? All my symptoms are below. If I pull my battery, all symptoms below disappear. I can sucessfully boot and use my system. \015\012\015\012The left light below the screen on my laptop describes whether the laptop is running from the battery. (Green = laptop is running on battery, off = laptop is not running on battery)\015\012The middle light below my screen describes the battery state. (Green = fully charged, off = running on battery power, amber = charging, slowly blinking red = 10% battery power or less remains.) \015\012The right light below my screen describes whether the laptop is running on AC power. (Green = laptop is on and plugged in. Off = laptop is either on and powered by battery, or laptop is off.)\015\012If the power is off, and the power cord is unplugged, the middle light is off. This is normal. However, if I plug in the adapter, but keep the laptop power off, the middle light starts rapidly blinking red, two times per second. This is far faster than the "Low battery" blink that I've seen before.\015\012\015\012If I unplug the adapter, then turn on the laptop, the left light turns green as normal. The laptop starts to boot. After 20 seconds, the laptop shuts down. The leftmost LED turns off, the screen turns off, the fan turns off. After this, the middle LED blinks red 12 times rapidly.\015\012\015\012If I plug the adapter back in, then turn on the laptop, the middle light and the right light both light to solid green. This would generally mean that my laptop is on, powered by AC, and fully charged. However, I experience the same shutdown as above. The laptop stays on for 20 seconds. I can go to my BIOS or start booting from either my linux or windows partition. I don't experience any problems or error messages. Everything works normally, for 20 seconds.\015

Answers :

Its late, so just to make sure I'm not brain-dead basically your laptop runs fine as long as its powered by the AC adaptor but dies fairly quickly while running via battery. \015\012\015\012This is very typical of a battery that will no longer hold a charge, not normally a user repairable item. It could also be that the charging electronics (in the laptop) isn't charging the battery, again not a typical user repair job. About your only option short of taking it to the repair shop is buying or borrowing a battery as a test.
