I need a new battery to my SYLVANIA netbook 7 It has folowing spesifications; SP-IN-1800mAh GB/T 18287-2000 How to buy?

Apparently this is a pretty common battery and is for sale on the internet such as the following site.
You can find other sites just by listing your battery requirement model number in the search window of your browser. You also can visit a "Battery Barn" if there is one near by and they would probably have your battery in stock, however ordering it on the internet takes about five days.

I have to take out the battery then put it back again before my Thinkpad will start up. Battery is not holding charge also. Are both of these problems due to a worn out battery, if so where in Ireland...

Yes, if the battery voltage is low, due to a dead cell in the battery, it could confuse the Laptop.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers and Driver downloads as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

My computer alerts that the battery is low, then goes to hibernate. Even though it is plugged in to AC, AND/OR the battery is at 99% power seconds before? What's wrong?

1. the battery wasn't charged properly the first time that is it didn't get a full 24 hour charge.
2. The battery is defective and is giving an incorrect reading.
3. Usually the batteries are Lithium Ion batteries and have what is called "smart
technology and have electronic logic built into the case which is read by the computer to
give indication of status of the batteries.
4. I suggest that you contact the manufacturer for a replacement. Some Lithium batteries
from that manufacturer are in "recall status".
5. check the manufacturer site for the recall list and if your model PC is on the list request
a replacement battery.

I have a compaq laptop that I use as a desktop, battery light came on and now computer doesn't work

Useage does not change the charastics of the computer . It is still a laptop.

I presume your laptop is plugged in to the wall. I presume your power supply is still working. Many times I find I can operate a laptop in this manner until the battery is really dead. In my experience, there has to be some capability in the battery for the power supply to be able to power the computer. You don't mention the model of this computer and you don't mention the age of the battery. If it is more than 3 years old ... you probably need a replacement. The replacement will probably be $100.00 or more. It may not be ecnomical for you to replace the battery.

Check or you can check e-Bay or Craigs list. It might make more sense to grab your data and sell the computer at either of those sites.

Yeah, computer batteries though they look fancy, they just have fancy covers. If you were to open one you'd find a bunch of what look to be perfectly ordinary rechargeable batteries all soldered together in trays. Lots of them are made with AA and AAA rechargeables. Just like any rechargeable battery they are only good for about 300 cycles before they start to loose some of their capacity. Just like a cell phone battery they need to be replaced periodically usually every 2.5 to 3 years. Your computer doesn't care who made your battery and there are several much less expensive alternatives to your name brand battery. Take the model number off of your battery and google it you'll find replacement batteries for much less. Just make sure your computer is listed in the 'compatable with' listing on the site and buy from a seller with a good rating.

New battery not charging for ibm z60m laptop

If that is the model of the new battery, then it looks like a compatable battery. It's quite possible it's simple a defective one. I woudl suggest calling the place you got the battery from and let them know it's not working. Check the following link, it has the official supported batteries listed for your model:
