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.
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,
Well the battery is dead. I don't understand your question. You have always been using it on AC adapter, but today you tried using it on battery and the battery was dead? Use the AC adapter and watch the battery and see if it charges. If not take the battery out and then put back in and make sure it is snug so the contacts are touching..if it still does not charge then you need to notify Acer, its under warranty and tell them the battery does not charge and you want a new one..if you have any questions let me know..
pls rate this with 4 diamonds then you can still ask any questions you like.
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
In order to correct problems with the battery's power management software, follow the steps below.
in the search field, then select
Under the Batteries category, right-click the
Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery
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
will scan your computer for hardware that doesn't have drivers
installed, and will install the drivers needed to manage your battery's
power. The notebook should now indicate that the battery is charging.
