Why won’t the battery charge on my Acer laptop?

Pearl October 12, 2014

Hi I have an Acer laptop. I replaced its battery a month ago and it was charging without problems until a few days ago when It just stopped charging. It will charge for a few seconds, then the power button will bling several times and then it will stop charging. What can I do? Please help!

    There may be damage to the battery (manufacture defect), especially if the battery is not an OEM battery. The flashing power light means that there is a power issue. I'd ask for a replacement through the warranty provided for the battery.

    1) go to device manager and find Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery
    2) right click and choose uninstall (do not delete)
    3) Reboot and let windows to reinstall a new one (check in device manager)

    or first remove the battery, uninstall Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery, boot on AC Power, let windows to re-install the new driver, then insert battery.
    see if this will work for you
