DJonesDoes anybody have any suggestions on how to diagnose/fix a laptop charging problem.  I've got an Asus A52F laptop which runs fine on mains supply, but the battery light was flashing red and not charging, replaced the battery and seemed ok, still a red battery light, and when booted into windows 10 or Ubuntu 16.04 shows 0% charging, but it never takes any charge.  If left switched off, its still got a red light and still doesn't charge. The ...12:32
DJones... battery was replaced with new manufacturer one, but that has the same issues. In Windows, I've deleted the ACPI battery driver and let that reinstall without any success12:32
foobarrywhat if the battery is removed?12:33
foobarryand left out?12:33
DJonesWorks fine on mains no matter what12:34
davmor2DJones: new laptop?12:39
DJonesdavmor2: No, its about 5 years old12:39
davmor2DJones: okay so not something that would be fixed by a bios update then so I can only assume a dead circuit board somewhere12:40
DJonesIts had a replacement power brick about 2 years ago which doesn't seem to have any issues/frayed cables etc12:40
DJonesThat was the thought I'd had about a motherboard fault12:40
davmor2DJones: no in the laptop there might be a small power board that is fired12:41
DJonesThe battery gets detected ok in both windows & ubuntu12:41
DJonesAH right, might open it up to have a look to see if there's anything obvious then12:41
davmor2DJones: yeah the battery gets hot under charge so 5 years of that and it might just of unsoldered a capacitor or something just follow the path from the power in to the battery12:43
DJonesCheers, will see what I can find12:43
Shaggy_does anyone here use mint?15:44
SuperMattI gave up on it a long time agao15:58

foobarrybrake lights were'nt working (top one was), side ones weren't16:17
foobarryjust pulled off the M1 after a long journey, 200 yds from hotel room16:18
popeyi once stopped a police car because his brake lights weren't working :)16:18
popeyHe wasn't impressed :)16:18
foobarrygot it fixed today, but then the guy told me he wasn't an MOT test station so i need to take it to a test station and ask them to stamp the form16:18
foobarrypc plod was telling me he checks his brake lights once a week in his garage16:18
foobarry"i live i london , i don't have a garage, only the reflections on other parked cars" i said with my inside voice16:19

diploI always keep spare bulbs in the car, ever since having to travel to france16:24
diploJust replace them when I use them16:24
diddledanthere was something that the EU mandated for the continent that you had to have at least one of them in your car and you can only use them once so to be sure of always remaining compliant you had to have at least two of them so you still had one once you'd used one16:26
diddledanI can't remember what it was though. maybe breathaliser?16:26
Seeker`diddledan: why do you have snow in basingstoke? Haven't got any here yet :(16:30
