If the battery is OK then there may be an issue with the contacts that connect the battery to the motherboard or the regulator on the mother board has failed due to a previously faulty battery, in which a motherboard repair is required.

Battery not holding charge and power lead has to be held in position for charging to take place


Use an ESD wrist strap with it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.
Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

Disassemble the laptop, remove the motherboard.

Replace the DC Power Jack. http://www.laptopdcjack.co.uk/product/Advent_6411_DC_Power_Jack_Socket_DC-ADV-6411

Advent 4211c battery flashing orange


The MSI (manufacturer of this product) website has very poor product support - the only download is a BIOS upgrade for MSI-labeled units only. I could not find a user's manual to download, so I will give you a generic answer based on customary practice:
If the charge light is flashing orange, when previously it was green during charging, then the computer has detected a fault in the battery.

Battery does not seem to hold charge on Advent 9115 laptop. 18 months old. Charged overnight. Switches off within half hour of switching on.


Sounds like your battery is dying.

Laptops should not be run on mains power all the time, it kills the battery. Should be run on battery until battery warning occurs, then plug in to recharge.

You'll need a new battery at this stage.
