Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCG-K35 Notebook ?

Charging problem hi, ive had my vaio for 3-4 years, my power jack broke, ive since then replaced it, but its not charging properly, it keeps switching between battery an ac mode, its like its not picking up the charger half the time, i need help please,, could it be my power board,,,,,


Answers :

Hello,
If your computer runs correctly on AC power (without the battery), the power adapter is fine. So the problem may rest with your battery. If you have been using the same battery for 3-4 years, I suspect that it may not be holding the charge (end of life)
Try charging you battery and run the computer on battery alone and see how long it lasts.

Hope it helps

Charge problem! My Acer Aspire 5560 laptop is only a year old. It needs to constantly be on AC power, even when I charge it, the moment it is taken off AC power, it displays the LOW BATTERY icon and asks to immediately be switched to a power source.
