What would cause the battery not to charge?
My laptop works when plugged into the power source. Battery shows that power source is connected, but will not charge. If I unplug the power source, it will run from the battery. But since, I cannot charge the battery--if I do this for long, it will obviously go dead (and I cannot charge it). Replaced the battery, same problem with new battery. I took battery to Batteries Plus. They said it should charge. It was at 30% and I did get it to charge up to 40%. I tried to shut down, remove power source & battery, then held power button for 5 secs, then connected battery & power cord before starting. After this, the battery charged to 48%, now it has stopped charging again.
Please help, I cannot afford a new computer. Since computer runs with power cord, I am thinking this is not the problem.
Is this a good question?
