Your battery could be old, therefore doesn't hold any long term charge.
Every time you add the battery it probably doesn't charge 100 percent therefore it discharges within 5 minutes, shutting down your laptop.

Won't turn on

Please check the following :
- Is the battery inserted correctly? (Try removing it and putting it back)
- Is the charger working? (Plug the charger cable into the laptop, see if the light that shows when it's charging is flashing. ) If not, Either your charger is not working, or the DC jack on your laptop needs to be replaced.
-If you have or can find another laptop with the same power jack, try your laptops charger on it to see whether or not it works. If it charges the other laptop, your charger is fine, and the DC jack on your laptop is broken and needs to be replaced. Please go to your nearest PC repair shop and tell them this. The actual part that needs to be replaced will only cost ~$2-$5 online; but they will likely add on ~$50-75 for labor.
-If it doesn't charge a different laptop with the same connector, your charger is not working, and you'll need to replace it. These cost a maximum of $20 online in most cases.
-There is a possibility in some laptops that your battery has malfunctioned, and the laptop won't power on without a working battery. The chances of this however are very slim; most laptops don't do this.

WX 435 Motorola was working fine a few minutes ago then it just off and won't come back on or charge. What happened?

Sometimes if the battery is dead you need to leave it plugged in for 5-10 minutes before it will "come back to life"
If that doesn't work, unplug it, take the battery out, wait a few minutes, then put the battery back in and let it charge for a while.
Also try another charger.

Booting up issue

Does it do this with the mains charger connected or only on battery power?

The plugging in the mains charger if not already, wait a couple of minutes and then try switching it on.

If the boots up fine you more than likely have a battery problem.

If it still doesn't start then you either have a power supply problem on the laptop itself or your main charger is faulty and not charging the battery.

You can also remove the battery and try booting it with only the mains charger connect.

Please provide the results of these queries

Try this:
1. Remove battery
2. Plug the charger or the USB Cable if you have it.
3. Place battery back in.
4. Let it charge (if it charges) all the way til you see green light.
5. Turn it on.

I hope that works.

Will a 60 watt mag safe ac adapter used w/ an A1212 17" Macbook Pro (normally uses an 85 watt adapter) harm either the adapter or the Macbook? thanks

Yes, I have used it this way.
It takes MUCH longer to charge the battery, especially if you are working on the machine with hard drive and cd drive spinning etc.
Also, if you run the battery out, it can take several minutes to get the machine back running after you reconnect the charger.
It was quite a relief to finally get an 85W charger, but your 60W will work fine.

Battery indicator keeps fluctuating to 4hrs to 6hrs back to 4hrs then 8hrs every 5 mins or so i have acer A0532H with windows 7

first of all let me ask how old is the battery, if it`s new-discharge the battery until pc shuts down itself because of low battery, remove the battery , unplug AC charger from laptop, wait for 5 minutes, then hold power button for 5 full seconds, wait another 5 minutes, then put battery and ac charger on , don`t turn on laptop yet, wait until battery indicator shows that battery fully charged, then remove AC charger, and turn on laptop. P.S. you can try this on old battery too, but usually worthless, because old batteries are not recognizable by system currectly ..

HP Pavilion DV5000 battery charging problem

Sounds like you need to calibrate the battery, it is supposed to be done every 3 months. If it is not done, your battery will display the same symptoms are you describe. Yes, this holds true for adding a new battery also.

Here is HP's instructions on how to do it. You want to scroll down to the section called "Calibrate the notebook PC battery".
