You don't have a real serious problem. Just use the Power Cord. Now if the Power Cord does not work, that's a real problem. If your power cord is good and you can use your laptop with it, then the problem is your battery is bad if it will not take a charge. It's time for you to buy a new battery.
Have you seen inside a laptop battery, it's not just a battery. It also has control circuitry inside, could be that. Not usually repairble but you can do some makes of battery. See here:Circuit. Personally I would buy a new battery.
do you constanly sit with the machine on the charger. if so you will have drained the battery. the only thing you can really do if this is the case is keep the charger unplugged from the laptop as much as you can. and as long as you havent took the battery too far down it will start rebuilding its charge time, however dont expect it to happen all of a sudden you will have to rebuild it over a period of a week or so. then in future stay off the charger untill your battery is very low and then charge and unplug the charger once charge so you dont do this again. if your wanting to be on a charger all the time to save the hassel of reaching for the charger all the time. you may want to consider buying a second battery and have one for when you want to be on charger for a long time so you still have a good one for if you want to take your laptop out etc.
Remove the main battery and power supply charger adapter from the laptop, wait a few minute to get rid of any residual charge, now install the battery, power up! if no change remove battery, next plug the power supply back in, power on, if yes! the main battery is bad and needs replacement. If no change reply to this message so I can help you further. If you having low memory issues, the ram needs to be upgraded.
Hi,the reason why your laptop is telling you to replace Battery is,you have killed your battery without knowing by Charging it always,since you have constant power supply,you should at least after getting a new Battery,discharge it four to five times a week longer life of battery,by these i mean,unplug cord from mains let power drain to 5% or 10% before charging again while working and if fully charged and you are not making use of it disconnect and if you want to make use of it use battery instead do not connect immediately to mains until power drains from battery.Just like your mobile phone,you only charge it when need be(ie. when Battery is Low).
check to see if your power cable is bad. if it went bad your computer would go to hibernate to save energy, then shut down all together. see if when you plug in your power cable if your computer shows that its charging. if it does maybe its a bad battery.
Since is shows it as charging then your power cable should be working. So it looks like a battery issue but batteries just don't die unless a cell inside dies then they will stop working. Try taking the battery off and making sure that the connections are clean then put it back in. If that doesn't work give the battery a good full charge then bring the battery and laptop back to where you bought it and get them to test the battery to see if a cell died.
