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

Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall.
ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

If you want to make sure of its state, be patient and give it enough time to charge. It might take 3-to 4 hours withe the computer is turned off, and a dozen hours if the computer is beig used. If after a significant number of hours, it is still at 0mAh then either the charging circuitry is defective or it is the battery that is defective (cannot hold the charge).
