Hi folks thanks for all the help i got with the 1st post about the password .But i was wondering if anyone could help me with another problem that has arisen since then ,when i got this notebook/laptop there wasnt any power adaptor with it so i bought one for £12 and its running perfectly but one thing ive noticed is that it doesnt charge up the battery so i can use it without the power lead and ive went onto YT to check there videos out about the matter and everyone has a battery on the bottom that can be just clicked out easily ,but with mine its just a flat base and to see the batterry youd have to take the whole bottom of to see the battery but as i said i`m not to great with computers and was wondering if this is the right way to take the battery out ? hopefully someone can help me here as i`m totaly baffled by it thank you in advance to anyone who can help me .

If you give us the make and model of this notebook we can look up the manuals / data sheets to see how or if the battery comes out. And how old it is.

 

Two possibilities come to mind. One is the battery could be 'cooked', ie too old to hold charge. The other is one I have seen on multi-voltage multi-computer chargers, chargers which are designed to work with a wide range of different laptops. This type of charger has a 'select voltage' switch on it and as a safety measure the manufacturers set it to the lowest level. Again, the manual will tell you what the input voltage should be and if the voltage is significantly below this it may run the computer but not have enough volts to charge the battery.

 

It is a sad fact of life that after a while all batteries lose their efficiency and if this notebook is over three years old this is a real possibility.
