So my battery, after 2 years died. I ended up getting a OEM from a third retailer that on arrival also failed....ok so i returned it and got a second OEM battery from the same dealer that also failed.
I ended up returning both and purchasing one from an after market dealer...and guess what- the battery didnt work again.
I am starting to wonder if there might be an issue with my laptop. The thing is, the laptop works when plugged in.
when i have the new battery plugged in, it says "plugged in, charging" but the % just never goes up. Another point is, that the last battery came half charged....and when I unplugged the laptop, it ran on battery power.
Things I have tried;
-uninstalled the driver for battery, in hopes when it re-installs it gets picked up
-took apart the laptop to see if there is any loose wires, nothing.
maybe the third battery is also bad? I just dont see how there could be an issue with the laptop, since it iworks while plugged in, and it also works on battery.
does anyone know a test or a method that I can use to check out the battery or test the laptop to see if it is charging?
any other advice or comments?
No, I do not have an ampmeter laying around
