Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A45-S250 Notebook ?
Purchased new battery, now NOTEBOOK won't work on battery after full charge
\015 This is the 2nd new battery. Probably not the battery.\015\012\015\012My toshiba a45-s250 notebook works normally with the original batter with the exception that the battery life is now about 30-50 minutes.\015\012\015\012A new compatible battery was purchased. After installation and full charge, the battery ICON shows FULL CHARGE. The notebook will not fully boot when on BATTERY only. It can be booted with the A/C connected but if the A/C is disconnected it abruptly shutdown (no messages) after 3-5 minutes of use. \015\012\015\012Swapping back to the original battery returns the functions of the notebook back to normal w/o the benefits of a longer battery life.\015\012\015\012Any IDEAs... BTW, I removed and reinstalled the BATTERY from the SYSTEM PROPERTIES->HARDWARE->DEVICE MANAGER without any change.\015
Your batter may never have been broken in appropriately; Acer, in the fine print, says that to break it in, you must fully charge it, then let it drain completely 3 times! Then you can use it normally. Since most Li ion batteries work the same, this could be a general rule. My notebook tells me when it is fully charged--you don't have to guess.
Better you first charge the battery for 16 to 17 hours and recheck the same. If problem persists, change the battery from where you bought it. that battery is faulty. And yes there is no need to install the battery from device manager. Just open the battery compartment and replace the battery with new one.

I have a battery charging problem on my Gateway Solo1450 laptop. The battery is new and gave me 30 minutes of battery only run time after taht it would not charge. I set the commands (Enabled) in the BIOS but it did no good. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help Peter

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge. Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger
Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized too ... Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
