Re: battery not recharging
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.

This means it's not getting a charge. I've just experienced this problem myself. I followed instructions online regarding cleaning lint from the charging port of the phone. Still no charge. I bought a charging cable that came with a car charger made by Belkin, this worked in the car, also allowed me to charge the phone from the pc, but wouldn't charge from the original plug. So I purchased an original Apple branded lightning cable today and it works. At last. So it turns out that my cable was faulty and another branded cable would not work with the Apple plug. So you need to try a known working Apple cable and plug and failing that clean out the port on the phone as lint is a common problem.
I'm inclined to think that your power cord is bad and you have drained your battery. When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.
Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.
Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.
You do not need to unplug the large 9 pin beau plug in the rear or the smaller 3 pin molex plug when you charge the chair. Do not unplug them or you will not charge the chair.
Use your charging cord as you describe "plug it into the front, plug it into the wall and charge, then unplug the charger cord and GO". Hope this helps.
do the hard reset again .. hold the power button down while operating the reset in the back .. keep the power button down for a few seconds .. that should bring up a display "delete all" .. you can choose to do so .. that will be a hard reset .. now if the battery is dead and the charger is not working then nothing will work for you .. you might have a bad charger .. often the end that plugs into the unit develops a broken wire inside the cable ..
the m515 wont charge from the sync cable (shame) it needs the external power adapter .. make sure the connections on the charger and palm are clean .. the power adapter is 5 volts and i think about 1 amp .. )(center pos) if you want to try another adapter .. the tip is rather standard ... also you can get a universal power adapter from radio shack that will work on just about anything .. you just plug in a suitable tip .. the tip for your palm is an "A19" .. the power adapter is "IGO" wall adapter 23-1401 model PSM08VADJ ... that seems to work nicely and it plugs directly in to the palm .. so you can work with it plugged in .. when the charger is working there should be a lightning bolt thru the battery symbol .. it sounds like you already know that .. if the battery has gone open then it may not indicate a charge .. but the unit should still work while on the charger if that is actually working ....
This sounds like a battery problem. The best way to test this is to remove the battery and then power the laptop up with just the power cord plugged in but no battery. If the computer boots then the battery is bad you will need a replacement. Also try letting the battery charge for a day. Be sure that the charging light is coming on when you have it plugged in.
