Faulty Battery ¶ 

To check if the battery is faulty, try to charge the netbook battery using the power adapter. If the blue LED light on the power adapter is on but the netbook will not power on after a few minutes of charging, then the battery is faulty. Consider replacing the battery using our Battery Replacement guide.
