    Not turning on bellow 30% with keyboard dock attached (T100TA)

    I have been using my T100TA for about 14 months already.

    But now, when the battery is about less than 30% and the keyboard dock is attached, and I try to turn it on, the white led turns on + the HDD starts to spin and then it turns off, then it tries to turn on automatically again, and then turns off. The process of turning on, spin and turning off takes about 3 seconds.

    BUT, when this happens, if I take off the dock, it starts normally.

    Then after the login screen comes on I can attach the dock again and it works normal again.

    Maybe bad battery?

    I suspect nothing more than normal battery degradation over the life you have had the device and now you have a faulty battery level reading. Add that to the mechanical HDD you are trying to power in the dock & there isn't enough power to do it and the device will not start.

    Try the conditioning tips in the battery guide sticky and see if the readings improve, at least. But trying to power a HDD with low battery levels is never likely to happen. If you had charged your battery in the optimum way, you probably wouldn't be in this situation now...
