A friend of mine had a bad battery. I advised her to buy a new battery, which worked fine for several months. Then she called and said her laptop would not work on battery or even plugged in. I had her buy a new charger. A week later, she called and it was not working again. We tried several things (she is some distance away) and finally I had her go get the cord from her old charger (luckily the trash had not been picked up yet) and it worked fine. So even new things can go bad - it sounds like the battery charger or the cord might be at fault.

Plugged in not charging

If the laptop shows it's on AC when plugged into your card adapter, then it's the charging circuit on your laptop. But if the laptop shows that it's running on battery when plugged in, then the problem is with the car adapter.

If you happen to have a voltmeter/DMM, check the adapter to see what voltage is coming out of the barrel connector.

2001 mercury grand marquis reading code p305 misfire, spark plugs and coils changed

If you changed the #5 Coil then the code was wrong

You get lots of wrong codes on a ford, as a bad coil
spikes the pcm when grounding out to fire the coils
secondary side

Try putting the old coil back & walking the new one to
another cylinder,may take many days & many miles of
driving to get it fix,but better than a shop guessing, because
they hate fords

I have a satellite p305 s8814 & have no power -

Not much info to go on, but I'm guessing either a bad battery or a bad power cord. Make sure all connections are good first. Unplug battery, and cord. Put them back in then try again.

Hi i have toshiba p305-s8830 i have new battrey but battrey cant be detected from the computer ?

If the original battery can be detected (even if it no longer holds a meaningful charge), and If the "new" battery is a 3rd party manufacturered one - and most of them are - it (the new one) may very well have been dead to begin with. Now please realize that these notebook batteries are not just a bunch of cells connected or wired together - it's a lot more than that, as there's also a circuit board between the battery contacts and the cells, and this circuit board almost always contain some form of propriety stuff that 3rd party battery manufacturers have to "reverse engineer" to be as close to the original specs as possible, and this reverse engineering stuff ain't always perfected or tested fully.

If I were you, I'd return it, get a replacement, and if the replacement is still not detected, I'd go with some other brand /manufacturer. This kind of stuff happens quite often.
