I'm assuming you mean the battery of a laptop. Laptop batteries have a shelf life, which is shortened if the laptop is constantly plugged in the wall. By the same token, if your laptop is constantly plugged in the wall, you don't really need a new battery. (They cost upwards of $80)

My Logitech Dinovo Edge is not recharging. When I put it in the charger the battery charging indicator light flashes red instead of green.


Were you having problems with short battery life before this happened? Most of the time if the battery is not recharging it needs to be replaced. Have never seen the red flashing light before though. It may mean that the battery has shorted out.

Aspire one no statring at all


if new, return it to place of purchase for a replacement. if used, the motherboard or internal problems may be the problem such as a bad motherboard, bad internal connection etc.
it may also be that the battery isn't being charged due to a bad adapter or battery. the battery may not be able to take a charge, or the charger may not actually be charging. if you have a spare charger, try it, and the same for the battery.
a green light on the charger doesn't mean it's actually doing anything. nor does it really indicate the battery is good.

My computer would not take a charge, so I bought a new battery, but it still want charge. What else could be the problem.


I'm confused.. you post this question on the pc desktop session... desktops do not have a battery... did you mean the power supply maybe??
if you actually have a laptop and you purchase a new battery please provide details on the lights that appear on the front of the computer when the computer is connected., there's a power light when the computer is plugged and a battery light that when charging is yellow/amber and when fully charged is green or blue.
if you in fact have a laptop and just replaced the battery depending on the lights you see in front it could be the connection on your computer attached to the motherboard right where you plugged your power cord, it's a fairly common problem that that little piece eventually starts crapping out on you. you need to get a replacement (ebay) and have it soldered onto the motherboard.. pay for it if you don't know how to do it.. it's a fairly delicate procedure.
again, depending on the lights you see, the othe problem could be your motherboard and your bios, flashing the bios may be something you may want to try.

post more details to see if there's something else that we may suggest.

Laptop will not charge, the green light on power lead is on but my laptop wont charge it is a acer aspire 5315 with vista


Okay, It can be 1 of 2 problems here:

1. Your laptop battery is completly dead, this can be caused by the overcharging of the battery, You may need to buy a new battery.

2. The battery charger is set at a voltage that can keep the laptop running, but not charge the battery at the same time, try a different charger (universal)

sounds like the battery may be bad. I would first suggest trying a replacement battery and see if it will charge if so problem solved; if however a replacement battery (that is known to be good) still does not work it is possible that your battery charger on your laptop has gone bad, which is possible but very rare.

AC Adapter stopped working


SmitFraud is not capable of doing actual hardware harm. It can be a pain to get rid of it software wise, but it can't do any harm to the physical machine. I think you've just had bad timing with this problem.

If the charger isn't charging, there's one of two problems. Either the charger itself is faulty, and it's not thinking the battery is charged when it isn't, or the battery is faulty. I would personally take your laptop into a shop that sells the same kind, explain the problem and ask if you can plug one of their adapters into your laptop. If the light comes on and immediately goes out, it's the battery. If it comes on and stays on, it's your charger. Either way you can find out which it is before you have to spend money on a replacement. Do be sure to do it with the shops permission, though - they won't like it if you help yourself, and you might find yourself swiftly banned from the premises.
