Battery meters at 12.5 volts but won't run laptop when ac removed

I have two PA3451U-1BRS Li-ion batteries that won't run my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2001 laptop when ac power is removed. Power meter says both batteries are dead but one battery meters at 12.5 volts and the other at 11.5 (yes I opened the cases). When one battery is installed with ac power on the charging light (amber) is on and never goes out. With the other battery installed the charging light never comes on.

Some batteries have a reset button on them. If it doesn't then the battery needs replacing. Most only are good for a couple years then stop charging properly, if at all.

Upgrading RAM and Batteries

For batteries, my advice would be to stick with the brand of the unit (Toshiba, in this case). Toshiba lists a 12 cell battery on their website under the "laptop accessories" section of For the A60, the part number is listed as PA3382U-1BRS and costs $152.99. You can search google for another place to buy (perhaps where you bought the laptop) but be careful that you don't get a generic in place of the original (OEM). With memory, Kingston and PNY are the aftermarket leaders and you can't go wrong with either. Kingston's website lists a whole slew of specific A60 models. Some with 256MB on board (not removable) and some with 512MB on board. So, a 512MB chip may give you 768MB or 1024MB depending on the exact model. Max memory seems to be either 1.25GB or 1.5GB depending on how much is onboard (and not removable). Installation is usually easy on any laptop and typically requires only a small screw driver to remove the memory cover on the bottom. The owners manual for the laptop likely gives the steps to add memory.
