laptop won't work when connected to the battery.

Post by djottard on Thu 16 Feb 2012, 19:46

Hi!

When my laptop is connected to the battery, it crashes after 10 min or so. I can't even move the pointer on the desktop. The only thing left to do until now is to press and hold the power button
for 30 seconds to make it work properly again. What can I do to solve that annoying problem?

Thanks in advance :-)

Hello,

What if you take out the battery and connect the power cord? (Without the battery in the laptop)

I am going to check both your suggestions and tell you what later. Thank you guys!

//EDIT

Hi!
So, I doublechecked the settings regarding the power management
and I also tried the laptop without the battery and connected to the
power cord but none are working. Moreover, my laptop hasn't any sleep
mode.

Hello,

Well, since you say taking the battery out doesn't solve the problem either, I don't think it's the batter.y.
When was the last time you reinstalled Windows? (If you ever did so) And which version of Windows are you using?

Hello,

You might want to format your PC and reinstall a clean, fresh installation of Windows 7. You'll thank me for it later!
