Having problems with your Gateway M-1625 Notebook ?

Gateway m-1625 battery won't hold any charge? Laptop/battery less than 2 years old... Thanks


Answers :

Laptop batteries have a lifetime defined in charge cycles. The unfortunate thing is that running a battery down to 80% is the same as using it down to 10% as far as a charge cycle is concerned. The average battery life is in the neighborhood of 300-400 cycles. In short, time for a new battery. You may be able to wring some more life out of this one, though: try letting your laptop drain the battery COMPLETELY by leaving it on until it goes dead, then recharging fully.

Bought new battery for dv9000t but monitor says "Charging, 0% available" And indeed after several hours still no charge. There's probably a trapdoor disconnect as part of the complex electronics inside a Lion battery to prevent charging when cells are out of acceptable parameters. I would not be surprised if there isn't a way to perform a reset from the 6 external pins. Agreed Lion charging is not for the begining level of understanding. Any guru out there on this matter?
