Is it a replacement battery ,you purchased, with the EXACT same specs? Some aftermarket inexpensive batteries do not work well with your laptop. How do you know it's not charging, by the Icon in the Tray Notification Area? Again sometimes aftermarket batteries don't have the ability to communicate with the software. The pin-outs are not the same.
Your battery charger/adapter connects to the DC Power Jack to power your laptop and charge the battery. Since the charger/adapter does 2 things, there are 2 "cells" inside it to do those 2 different things. It's not uncommon for one or the other (but not both) to fail. So, often just purchasing a new charger/adapter solves the problem you're having. It appears that yours is continuing to charge but has stopped "adapting" AC current to DC current to power the laptop directly.
Try taking a closer look inside the whole where the tip of the adapter slides in.. Make sure that the Pin that slides into the middle of the adapter tip did not break off or missing. If it is there, make sure that your battery is not the issue instead and/or you are purchasing an incorrect ac adapter.. Good Luck!! Lucky4lynn2
Hello Jake, To be totally honest with you (as a repair technician), it sounds like you may need a new charger. It will be rather costly for you to take it to a repair place (unless it is under warranty) to have them fix it, because they are going to charge you anywhere from 25-75 dollars labor (depending on the difficulty of your problem) then charge you for parts (which again could be costly depending on what they have to replace). If I were you, I would consider cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser first then replacing the batteries as this is the cheapest alternative and if that did not solve the problem then buy a new charger. Either way you will more than likely save money by purchasing new equipment vs paying someone to repair it. If you decide to purchase new equipment make absolutely sure that they are compatible with the system you have, because it should not fall out of the charger and it should not matter what position you have them in because everything should fit snuggly and properly.
If you do not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks. And please let me know if you need further assistance.
