Run A BIOS UPdate For Your Make/ Model...
Your Laptop Doesnt want to recognise it because it is not an OEM part... BIOS Update should have a fix in it for that.

No Power on Hp 620 Laptop

If the battery does not charge then the problem is likely the charger.
If you can borrow a charger instead of buying a new one you can find out for sure if the problem is the inside the laptop its self or the charger.
Remove the battery and hold down the standby button for a whole minute to drain any remaining power in the model. replace the battery , attach the new/borrowed charger lead and see if any activity happens ie, sound, lights...ect. This is the first thing someone does in a repair shop and its to diagnose where the issue is comming from.

I have toshiba satalite A300-20T and when i connect it with charge it restart but when i use battery only it work good

HAve you tried with another charger? before changing motherboard i suggest you to check your laptop with other charger. if it'll work then you don't need to pay huge amount to replace mother board. If it is with mother board then surely it;ll work if you change it but be sure before doing it. so check with other charger.

Why is my hp dv7 overheating and turning off frequently?

Several reasons are possible.  1st, it could be the socket on the mother-board where the adapter plugs into it - these are known to loosen and short out.  The mother-board cooling fan could be plugged with lint and stuff preventing cooling!!! Disassembly is required to remove lint and dust.
Finally - if some of the cells in the battery pack are bad, the charger will have to push more juice to try and bring the battery up to snuff and things will get hot.  These cells can be replaced but is a tricky job as they arent' meant to come apart easily.  If you do, remember that if you remove any batteries from the circuit board inside the battery the memory will be lost and that battery will never charge again.  The thing to do is have a trickle charge from  a 1.5v battery with wires and alligator clips soldered onto it to keep power to the circuit board while you replace the batteries.  If power is completely removed from board - throw it in proper disposal unit.  Usually can tell a bad cell by a clear or white-powder substance on the battery, or leaking around the edges.  Replace with the same mh value (milli-hours).  Individual batteries can be purchased from a battery-house, or just solder in some rechargeables, perhaps.

Another final possiblity is if you don't have the proper mother-board drivers and are just running off the Generic XP drivers this may cause things to heat up.  Be sure that all drivers in your system are up to date.  Don't know the best site to tell you to go to there however.  Maybe ???

Good Luck - hope this helps some.

Flashing Lights On My Computer?

You've changed the batteries, but are they fully charged?

I usually leave my charger in all the time when using the laptop as Advent laptops have bad battery life.

Try charging it for max 8hours. If the problem stil persists,then i guess its something internally wrong with the laptop?

Or even, the charger wire may be a bit loose which is preventing it from charging the laptop either completly or partly.

Hope that helped

Acer aspire 3500 wont hold charge or turn on

I had to buy an new ac/dc plug piece off of ebay (cost only like $3 bucks) to sodder onto the mother board of my Acer. Somehow the little plastic/metal piece you plug into your computer comes off the mother board really easy. Acer wanted me to purchase a whole new mother board (at frigging $350), which, frankly wasn't an option. So I bought the little plug gizmo, soddered it on, and I'm doing good now.
