    Problem: Just two days ago it had stopped working properly. It's only one huge headache right now. Anyway it's not charging the battery anymore.



    The battery is "on". and attached on the bottom. Power line (or whatever) is connected to my laptop. On the process corner of my desktop (right beside the clock) it shows that it is charging!


    Could it be that my laptop battery is kaput ?

    Ps. Would appreciate any help. Thanks !

    Did you try poping the battery out and putting it back in again?

      Yeah. I have tried that. Right now I took it off, cause I'm afraid it might damage the laptop, having a "dead" battery connected while it's powered by AC/DC power plug ???

        Could be the battery, charging system, or an error in Windows causing an incorrect info display. Iíve seen all three on laptops were I used to work.

        I assume you've tried to turn it on when not plugged into AC power. If the battery is dead, then that rules out a Windows bug.

          Are my eyes playing tricks on me or did you come to an aviation photography website and then ask for geeks?

          What did you expect? People with lives to frequently troll this site?

            6,500 posts... What exactly do you class as a 'geek'?

            Just buy a new battery or take it to a local computer shop.
