Panasonic CF-30: While plugged into a/c the

\015 Panasonic CF-30 I think this is happening: While plugged into a/c the battery discharges and the system hangs or freezes while the battery charges. I recently added a Canon LiDE 100 usb powered flatbed scanner. Could adding the scanner be the cause of problems while charging the battery? It will freeze now plugged into a/c power (home or vehicle) and with or without the scanner. I have to hold the power button for five seconds and then it may boot and work. I think the problem is the battery doesn't recharge while I am using the laptop. I have used the battery recalibration application and was able to stay on for a while but it finally froze up again. Is the battery not taking a charge until I reboot? Is it the battery or the system?\015

Answers :

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power\015\012adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop,\015\012remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop &\015\012see if it works.
\015\012If the laptop works directly from the power adapter\015\012with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case\015\012we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.

For me, it looks like the Canon LiDE 100 USB powered flat scanner was drawing extra power than your laptop's power adapter could handle properly. As time passes, this might have caused some damage to either the system, the A/C adapter or both. Rightnow, your laptop's adapter's output might be no longer capable\015\012of supplying enough power to charge the battery & operate the\015\012laptop simultaneously. Please try a replacement adapter & check if\015\012it resolves your problem.
