Battery Depleted Hi, Even though I am plugged into the wall outlet, the computer keeps saying that my battery is depleting and I should plug in or risk losing data...I am already plugged in! Do I need a new battery so that this doesn't keep happening? I don't want to lose any data! Thanks, Sheila

Are you able to run the laptop with no battery installed but the power cable plugged in? If not, there's a good chance your power jack on your laptop has broken (or almost broken) and will need to be replaced or the power adapter isn't working.

If it does run, your battery is probably bad and can't take any charge. It will need to be replaced.

    There's also a chance the AC adapter is not working. Most have a green LED that lights when it's working. If not, you may have to check it on another (similar) laptop or with a meter.

    Yeah, the problem is either with the power connector on the laptop or possibly with the battery (although less likely). You can replace the power connector yourself, although I must admit, it's not the easiest thing.

I left my computer and when I came back it was off and the battery was plugged in the outlet. I restarted it and it worked for a minute or two and then closed again. When I pressed the power button again,...

It might be possible that your power adapter died. But before reaching this conclusion remove your adapter from the outlet and the laptop. Examine for any broken connections and if none, try plugging it back in. Also try using your adapter on a different outlet.
Hope this helps.

Battery only charges upto 7%

Chances are the battery itself has been damaged. These batteries have several cells linked together, and if any of the cells fail then capacity drops accordingly. You may want to look to replacing the battery.

Try another outlet in your home. Or if it is plugged into a surge protector remove it for the surge and plug it directly into another outlet

Computer won't turn on though plugged into wall

Make sure you have power at the outlet. Take power cord off and remove battery. Hold power button down for 10 seconds, plug just power cord. Try to turn on. If dose not work , you have a hardware issue.

Battery won't charge

The reason the time won't 'stick' is that the CMOS battery, a coin-type cell, is depleted. They last at least 3 years but anything beyond that is gravy. The most expensive of that type will still be under $10 US.  Radio Shack and even Wal-Mart carries a variety of them and there are only a couple of types used in PCs.
