Why will my adaptor not work on my Windows 7 Samsung notebook ?

 

 

 

If the notebook battery is not charging or the notebook does not indicate that the battery is charging, the most likely cause for this is that while the battery itself is operating correctly the power management software may have become corrupt. In order to correct the problem, you will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software by using the Device Manager.

In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below:

1. Click Start and type 'device' (without quotation marks) in the search field, then select Device Manager.

 

 

 


2. Expand the Batteries category.

 

 

 

 


3. Under the Batteries category, right-click the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listing, and select Uninstall.

 

 

 

 

 Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.

4. On the Device Manager Taskbar, click Scan for hardware changes.

 

 

  

 

Windows will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.
