Will not power on without charger plugged in

My Acer R11 R131T won’t charge, or power on without being plugged in, but tells me the battery is there and gives me a percent. It says “40%, Plugged in, not charging” at the moment, but it’s been going down slowly.

I’ve tried the power reset by pressing the button on the bottom and waiting a few minutes (overnight). I’ve also tried other chargers, including new chargers. Any tips or help would be nice. Thank you!

There was a button that is inside the computer that needs to be pressed down. I drilled a hole in the laptop, and taped a screw in it to hold the button in place.

The battery has got to be the prime suspect. As for the 40%, it’s clearly having you on.

You could try running BatteryInfoView from Nirsoft.net, which gives more detailed information, but it doesn’t have a battery lie detector.

Sounds like a battery problem to me, so let’s try a new battery. I included a link to get a replacement battery and a guide on how to replace the battery.

The battery was not the problem, I figured out $20 shorter than I was a few weeks ago. The power delivery was the issue
