Question about Computers & Internet
This issue has been posted on here before but no answer thtat fixed this issue was ever posted. AC adaptor, bios update and new battery all do not fix this problem
I replaced the battery but my charge light will go out after a few seconds.
If I remove and reinsert the battery the charge light will come on but then just go out again.
The battery meter doesn't see the battery but if I unplug the AC power the laptop stays running so it is being power by the battery.
I cleaned the contacts on the battery and laptop but it didn't help.
Comment by xlh1460, posted on Jan 20, 2008 I thought that might be it so I updated the BIOS. 9.30 was the newest I could find (I created a bootable CD) but that didn't help.
The Charging circuit on the motherboard is bad, and the motherboard will need to be replaced.
