I'm confused.. you post this question on the pc desktop session... desktops do not have a battery... did you mean the power supply maybe??
if you actually have a laptop and you purchase a new battery please provide details on the lights that appear on the front of the computer when the computer is connected., there's a power light when the computer is plugged and a battery light that when charging is yellow/amber and when fully charged is green or blue.
if you in fact have a laptop and just replaced the battery depending on the lights you see in front it could be the connection on your computer attached to the motherboard right where you plugged your power cord, it's a fairly common problem that that little piece eventually starts crapping out on you. you need to get a replacement (ebay) and have it soldered onto the motherboard.. pay for it if you don't know how to do it.. it's a fairly delicate procedure.
again, depending on the lights you see, the othe problem could be your motherboard and your bios, flashing the bios may be something you may want to try.

post more details to see if there's something else that we may suggest.

    in general you get the software and the update file or both rolled up into one installed from the laptop manufacturer... I can try to assist you looking for one (if there's one avaliable). post details.. make and model.

    I would also suggest for you to rule out the posibility of a hardware problem FIRST because once you flash your bios.. there's no way back and if done wrong, that could render your computer useless.

Packard bell netbook nav50 battery stopped charging properly. bought a new charger and battery and it still wont charge it up.

LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

Dell 9400 wont show AC power icon

If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the about10.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Solid green: The battery is charging.

  • Flashing green: The battery is almost fully charged.

If the computer is running on a battery, the about41.jpg light operates as follows:
  • Off: The battery is adequately charged (or the computer is turned off).

  • Flashing orange: The battery charge is low.

  • Solid orange: The battery charge is critically low.
Looks like the AC adaptor is faulty.

Not charging

Try connecting directly to USB port on your computer, NOT a hub. It needs power to charge.
