Apparently this is a common problem on these models. You may need a new AC Socket - you can buy oin ebay, but you have to take the motherboard out to fit it. If you wiggle the plug gently to get it connected it may work. If its jammed up - you might try taking out the bios battery on the motherboard to reset - it worked on mine.

My fujitsu wont work without its charger and when the charger is plugged in it wont actually charge the battery itself.

Probably your battery is dead because if there would have been any problem with your charger port, you cant be able to use it on plugged mode. Buy a new battery ASAP.

Worked off the battery but it wont charge or run off power cord adaptor

Check and make sure the power adapter doesn't have a fuse somewhere in it. Then chk the wattage output of the adapter. Watts should be marked on the adapter.. Now see what the computer requires. Computer info is on the sticker on underside of computer.To determine how many watts the computer needs, Note the amps the computer draws(on label) and multiply the volts(on computer again) x the amps. Answer will be your needed wattage.
Use only the adapter that came with the computer. They may look alike, but there is a difference. Make sure the computer is powered off. A full charge is needed now since the battery was dead. Allow time and don't use the machine prematurely.
Make sure the adapter output matches or betters the requirements of the computer.- Good Luck-Ned

Disable anti theft

It sounds like the battery isn't charging. These laptops are famous for breaking the power plug solder joints. If the joints break than the battery wont charge and no power will get to computer to start it. The repair is to take it apart and resolder the plug joints. I would however buy a new one on eBay and solder it in instead of trying to fix the old one. Sometimes they break inside the plug and you cant see it, to find it you need to do a continuity test with a digital voltmeter.

NEW Battery not properly charging

Batteries have electronics data that software has to get to properly charge it. Newer lithium batteries maybe different. But apparently, you have a work around for a lengthy use of the new battery.

My ibm wont turn on unless the charger is in it just wont turn on.

The battery must have gone bad! if its three or more years old you need to get a new battery for the computer. Periodic conditioning of the battery from first use may prolong the battery life. Battery life is reduced by plugging computer with battery all the time.
Conditioning. Periodic full charge and full discharge practice is good for battery. Batteries are better charged when they are at less than 10% power and its better to charge them to 100%. Do not leave on electric power once they are fully charged.
I hope this helps in future but current battery may need replacement!

It wont charge the battery, it says its using AC power. I cant use it unless its plugged in..

If the computer is telling you that it is plugged in but the battery won't hold a charge the most likely explanation is that your battery is either spent (if it is older than two years) or it is defective (if it is a new battery).

Power problems with a Compaq Presario C700

Sounds to me like a broken connector on the socket on the motherboard.check, ,or a broken wire at the plug end, check, or the like, or the battery is not making contact as you discovered. Meter the PSU, and wiggle the plug, and socket and see if it makes and breaks connections.
