Question about Umax ActionBook 333T Notebook
Hi, well i'm having this problem with my Targus ac70u adapter to charge my laptop, and when i hover the mouse over the battery in the corner to see how much percent my laptop is charged[i have windows Vista] it says; " 0% remaining, plugged in not charging. " When I unplug the charger, my computer immediatly shuts off, and i have to plug it in, in order for my computer to turn on. I have a Compaq C500 Presario, and Windows Vista. This charger has worked before.. so i don't see what happened. Please don't tell me to unplug it because i have done that enough already..
Thank you ^.^
How old is your laptop? It may just be that you need a new battery if it won't hold a charge.
Further, this charger worked previously on this laptop and with this battery? If so, you definitely might be ready for a new battery.

Is the Tagus adapter your original adapter?
Check the adapter wih a multimeter to see if the voltage output is or slightly greater than what is printed on the label.
The adapter may not have sufficient amps to charge the battery and run the laptop, check the current rating of the original adapter and compare it with the Targus, it should be the same voltage and current rating or higher current rating.
If the adapter is OK then the battery is worn out and needs to be replaced. Recharageable batteries have only a limited number of charge and discharge cycles, when this is reached they just don't work any more. Buy a new battery, not a 2nd hand one because of the reasons I've mentioned.
