Laptop battery litium Ion batter not charging.


I own an Acer Aspire 5810T (Windows 7)
Not the greatest laptop, but does the job.

The battery had the potential last for 6 hours due to the low energy consuming components in the laptop (I think). One day it just stopped working, when I plugged out my laptop to move it...the laptop shut off entirely. Basically, I have to keep it plugged in, in order to use it (which is very annoying).

It's nothing to do with the charger, as I've tested it out with another one.

I took a screen shot as you can see below, it stays at 48% and doesn't increase or decrease.



I am thinking of using the "Freeze revive" technique on the battery but I am wondering....is it possibly something to do with the motherboard or something? that the battery is actually completely fine? this is the extent of my knowledge by the way.

I have also removed the battery and just left it plugged in and it works fine without the battery.

If anyone can advise any troubleshooting techniques I would be grateful.

My battery did that as it was nearing the end of its' life. Is yours a few years old?

It's 3 years old now but it wasn't running on empty, it would last about 3 hours which is pretty good after 3 years of use...it seems to sudden to have given up!

That's how batteries often die.

I've found that any rechargeable battery starts dying when recharged too long. If this is not the problem, the next place I think I'd look is the power options: control panel, performance & maintenance, power options. Maybe you have a bad battery, hopefully it's still under warranty. If not, purchase another battery. There's a latch on the bottom that will allow release of the battery. I hope this helps.
