Netbook Battery Ticking sounds

#1corex3dPosted 4/8/2014 8:14:06 AM
a couple questions about it:

1. the battery for my acer aspire one d250 ticks for some reason when its almost fully charged any idea why?

2. I have another battery from a similar netbook a acer aspire one aoa 150 (netbook itself is no longer functional) but the battery seems to fit in the d250 just fine would it be safer to use instead of the ticking one?

I enver heard of a battery ticking before. It could be a bomb... Joking aside if the batter from your old netbook fits fine then it should work fine.
We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

thanks I was kind of afraid to use the other battery but I will try it and see if it ticks or not hopefully it doesn't and it seems to only do it when its almost fully charged for some reason

are you sure it is the battery? It could be the battery or maybe the HDD or the disk drive, which when failing are known to cause ticking/clicking. I would backup your important files on your HDD just to be safe.

It does it when the computer is off charging so it can't be the HDD can it? and its a netbook so no disc drive

Maybe it's heating up so much that when you turn it off bits of it start contracting (after thermal expansion) so it makes that cracking noise that you're mistaking for ticking.

OR, if you're positive like 1000% positive that it's the battery, maybe it's defective and the sounds you're hearing is gasses venting from the battery. Laptop batteries have been known to explode from charging in the past.

Tell, Acer, and try to get a new battery out of them

its a 2009 netbook that I put 2gb ram in to help it out some it use to have xp till I managed to mess it up (long story) I was going to put Linux on it and I only charge it when its off but now that you mention it the battery does get rather warm when charging
