Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-FJ270/B Notebook ?

Laptop Charge troubleshoot

\015 I am having a Sony Vaio VGN NS20Z_S. When i plug in my lap for charging, it goes up to 80% and after that it shows "plugged in but not charging". IS this any kind of system settings or any prob with the battery???\015

Answers :

Hi there
Basically the battery was not fully discharged when it was brand new and now the battery thinks its fully charged at 80%.
In some laptops a cell may have failed but usually causes the battery not to charge at all.
Fully discharge the battery and see if it will resume a full charge, if not your stuck with it like that.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
You might have erased the Cells memory to be able to charge it to full capacity... this happens when it is constantly plugged into power source and has battery in as well.... even though you're using AC power, the battery drains and eventually it's cell memory thinks that 80% is full....
\015\012Try doing a bios update ... if it's not the battery itself, a bios update might have a correction for it...

Annoying beep When my laptop is plugged in to the power cord, it beeps often, sometimes up to 40 beeps per minutes. It is not the battery, as when I remove the battery, the beeping persists. I hear no beeping when I use the machine on battery only, but the battery does not seem to be holding a charge, so I think it must not be being fully charged. Is this a common problem? Can you help me troubleshoot it? Many thanks. Blue skies, Lark
