Question about Computers & Internet
My lap top is approx. 4/5 years old, it has two batteries, I tried charging the one that was in it when my daughter-in-law gave it to me, when I unpluged it from the ac after about 24 hours (she had not used this for a year or so) it would not come on after unplugging it from the ac, so I assumed it is a dead battery, the unit came with two batteries, my question is: do I just put the battery in leave it plugged into the ac and turn the machine off and the battery will charge (providing it is good) or is there some other procedure I must do to get it to charge, I haven't tried the second one yet, but wanted to know if there is a button I push or just shut it down with it plugged into ac, thank you
As soon as the AC is plugged in, the battery will start to charge. The battery light located somewhere on the laptop should indicate you that it is charging. It does not matter if the laptop is turned on or off.
What you explain here about the first battery is very common for a 4-5 y.o. laptop. The longevity of the battery mainly depends on the number of charging/discharging cycles it encountered. If the second battery you want to try spent more time in a carrying case than in the laptop, it may still be usable. But do not expect to go over 1 hour of autonomy with it.
