After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."

 

Shockingly none worked that I found.

 

Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.

 

A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.

 

To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)

 

Worked with an off brand battery also.

 

Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.

 

Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.

 

Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!
