Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
Compaq Presario Labtop will not stay charge up was on when I install the new battery plug up cord AC and DC Adapter would not recharge up the computer.
When you install a new battery and remove a battery always make sure the laptop is completely shut off and have the power cord removed so that you avoid any possible power surge.
Batteries generally don't last much longer than a year and I have found removing the power cord or battery when it is off to be a good practice.
Before you charge a battery make sure it is run most all the way down. Recharging a battery when it is not run down can give it a memory and you may only be able to charge it up to the point you started charging it.
Anyway, if the computer won't charge a new battery then you could have a bad motherboard. To be sure try another battery.
