    Why are you needing to update the BIOS?

    I read that it will fix my battery issue, I can't get my battery to charge. Should I just replace the battery?

    Where did you read this? 

    I'm not seeing it in any of the descriptions on the BIOS downloads.

     

    There are more components to the power system than just the battery, including the AC adapter, the power board and the mainboard of the system.  I'm unable to tell you specifically why the battery is not charging.  Additional information may make it more likely for a reasonable recommendation.

     

    Does the system power on AC Adapter without issue?

    Do you have any lights for the battery on when the battery is plugged in?

    Does Windows detect that there is a battery connected?

    I read this: If you own an aspire one and have noticed that your battery is not charging it is a problem with the bios on the acer it is not a bad battery. Once your battery has gone totally dead the netbook will not re-charge the battery and you will get a 0% indicator on battery charge. The bios in these needs to be updated to version 3310.

    My netbook won't turn on unless the power cord is plugged in, but when it's off and I plug it in the light comes on that it's detecting the battery when its on and off. How would I know if windows is detecting it? The computer is around 4 years old on original battery.

    The bios is for these models
    AOA110 or AOA150, mines a 532h maybe that's why the bios doesent come up.

    That article specifically states it is ONLY for those two models mentioned in the article.

     

    It does NOT apply to the AO532h.
