Before I spend exorbitant amounts of $$ on commercial repairs.... is anyone aware of a (?simple) reason why a Compaq Presario 1650 LapTop (with a new and tested battery, now twice replaced) wont charge the battery. The laptop operates, displays the 'charging' LED (though this intermittently blinks as if just started charging) but on unplugging you have a flat battery and immediately the laptop has to save and shut-down. Doesn't matter how long the laptop is plugged in for, whether in use or not. All the LED indicators are appropriate.
My Laptop is no longer portable ie. not much bloody use!! HELP.
