Not charging

Recommended Posts

I have an acer Aspire E5-475, bought at Lazada (maybe not the best idea, but I am 71, and not that mobile anymore). 

 

It only works with the power cable, shows it is charging but doesn't. 

 

I am at 50% now, bought it in April. Use it daily. 

 

Can it still work with the power cable when battery shows 0?

 

Or will I need another battery or maybe better a new laptop? 

 

Please be concise and not technical. 

 

I am Belgian, and English is my 4th language. 

It was mandatory when I was young to first know the 3 National languages (Flemish-French-German) before learning English. 

 

Thank you.

Thanks KhunBENQ for your concrete answer.

 

I checked and I have a warranty till 20 march 2020, however I stupidly lost the invoice from Lazada ( If there was one ).

 

But if it still work after the battery is 0, I am happy enough with this.

 

Thanks again.

I have a Samsung laptop, the battery life is at best 45 minutes when not plugged in, I have it plugged into the mains when I switch it on and is left like that until I hit the sack at about 23.30 hrs.

 

I have been using it like this for about 7 years.

Otherwise you have to take laptop and charger to a some repair shop.

Most likely you will have to pay for a battery exchange.

(they can usually exchange even if the battery is built-in)

Give this a try:

The battery is not easy to take out, inside the laptop with different screws. 

Not something for me, being totally unhandy.

I don't even have any kind of work tools. 

 

Thanks anyway.

Buying on Lazada is same as buying on EBay, third party sellers , copy / fake products. Have had lots of refunds via paypal on Ebay over the years. If you’re going buy from 3rd Party make sure payment it is secure through a 3rd party !

Farangwithaplan, with all respect, this is too much for me.

 

I clicked on the icon and don't even find where to type "cmd".

 

And that is suppose to be the most easiest part.

 

I appreciate your input, but please let us keep it simple (for me).

 

I have now 37% left from 50 a few days ago.

 

Soon it will be 0 ( I assume )

 

Will see then.

Just start typing after you click the icon. Keep persisting if you can Luke. If not, ask someone to help you.

 

Or just keep asking questions. I know these things can be difficult.

 

EDIT: I just found this You Tube video. It is only 3 minutes long. At 2 minutes 15 seconds he does something a little different to me but you will get the same result.

 

Look here:

You keep trying to help me, and I don't want to do what you tell me.

I assume frustrating for you, sorry.

 

i have received a concrete answer  to my question, it seems my laptop will still work with a power cable when the battery indicate 0.

 

I will let it know here if it is the case.

Thanks again to everyone, sorry again if I don't do what some expect I should do.

 

A forum is a place where one can obtain answers to questions, and that is great.

It is up to each one in particular to decide what to do with those answers.
