I have tried 3 new batteries and each will not charge. The PC runs on AC and the battery is listed as 0%, but windows indicates its charging but its not. I suspect it has to do with the firmware on the T23, but I can't update it without a battery?

I have a new gateway laptop with windows 7 and today it said plugged in not charging 8%. I tried everything and nothing worked so I turned it off and unplugged it and took the battery out and put it back in and it started charging...hopefully this works.
I would check to make sure the AC adaptor connection on the motherboard was not damaged when you opened the pc. ( I have done that a few times.) I'm uncertain of what you have done to solve the problem. Since you have the new battery, again try to charge the battery. when it show the charge is complete, let the pc run until it goes off, when it does, keep powering your pc on until it will no longer power on. (You want to make sure the battery is completely drainned.) Once complete, try plugging the AC to your pc and monitor the charge. You may need to let the pc charge for at least 2 hours before powering the pc on.
Hello, This problem has arised because your motherboard hasn't identified your battery. So, this is motherboard problem. next time when you chat with the dell representatives, tell them that your motherboard is not recognizing your battery. They would arrange a pickup and would have it repaired in their center. Good luck,
From HP website- worked immediately for me. This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with Windows Vista.
Understanding battery charging issues
the notebook battery is not charging or the notebook does not indicate
that the battery is charging, the most likely scenario is that the
battery itself is operating correctly, but its power management
software may have become corrupt. In order to correct the problem, you
will need to uninstall and reinstall the power management software by
using the Device Manager. This document will explain how to uninstall
and reinstall the ACPI Battery listings in Windows Vista, as well as
how to obtain and install updated BIOS files, if needed to correct
other battery issues.
Uninstalling and reinstalling power management software in Windows Vista

Under the Batteries category, right-click the

listing, and select
Do not remove the Microsoft AC Adapter driver or any other ACPI compliant driver.
On the Device Manager taskbar, click
Scan for hardware changes
Action > Scan for hardware changes

installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's
