Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook
My battery drained down and it won't charge with the cord plugged in. The lightning bolt on front keeps blinking and it won't charge. Bad battery?? Bill
This is usually the case. A small chip inside the battery that keeps tabs on the state of health for the battery is what sends the signal not to accept a charge. Unfortunately that may be bad itself and the batteries near their end, one will fail before the other sometimes, but it does mean the cartridge, ergo the battery needs to be replaced.
It does pay to shop around and not run to HP for a battery, Ebay is a good place to start with this in mind, find a power seller with a high rating who has an agreable return policy and acceptable warranty period. Only then, purchase from them.
Otherwise, you can shop at highly regarded outlets on line such as NewEgg.com.
A Google/Froogle search will yield a return of results that can be ranked by sellers with four stars. Some of these even have Google Checkout. Just use the same common sense for a solid rep and ample return policy with a warranty that makes sense to you. It is your choice where to buy.
Please remember to rate this solution, it is appreciated. Thanks.
