Lenovo N100 battery wont charge

By shpatel1 ·
My N100 is a little over a year old and suddenly yesterday, my computer just stopped charging my battery. The battery was working fine until now and had almost a 3 hour battery life. Now when I plug in my computer it no longer charges. Why?

Also the laptop itself works perfectly fine and I have no issues with it as long as its plugged into the wall.

Any suggestions of where the problem may lie? Is it the battery?

Most likely

Batteries are funny. I have had laptops where they last forever and others where they "wear out" after a year or two. Its probably under warranty, call IBM/Lenovo up.

The most common thing to happen to a NB Battery

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Lenovo N100 battery wont ...

Is that it lasts less time as it gets older till it eventually stops working all together. If they go from working properly to not working it defiantly sounds like a faulty battery.

The first option here is to contact IBM/Lenovo and see if they issued a Recall Notice on the Battery, if they did they will replace it and if they didn't it should still be covered by IBM warranty depending on what is involved and if you purchased an extended warranty.

If you can not get the maker to replace the battery you can get it repacked by one of the many Battery re packers which tends to be slightly cheaper than buying a new battery and the repacked batteries tend to last longer as they have a bigger capacity much of the time but before having the battery repacked check out the prices involved for repacking and buying a new one.

Battery won't charge

by eggestad In reply to Lenovo N100 battery wont ...

I saw your posting, and I would like to add that the exact
same thing happened to me a couple of weeks back, and
other similar mailings have had a follow-up suggesting
that it has to do with an operating system setting;
however, my machine is running CentOS 4.4, and all other
postings seem to indicate a windows environment - well, I
suspect that it may be either a host hardware problem or
the battery itself?

any other suggestions?
