Sony Vaio VPCF126FM running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit


- When the OS is started, it says plugged in and charging and even shows a percentage. The percentage goes up VERY slowly (maybe a few percent in an hour or two).

- I've purchased a new battery, and it still will not turn on unless power is plugged in.

- I've tried a different charger (universal).

- The battery light DOES light up when the computer is plugged in and off.



Is it worth opening up to see if it's a dc jack problem? If it was, would it still show as charging and light up? I'm stumped.
