Hi all!

I had a probelm with the battery of this laptop. It wouldn't charge, so I bought a new one.

Surprise: it doesn't charge too!

The system recognize it for a little while and just after 20 second or less the battery disappear into the battery manager.

What happens?

Do you have suggestions?

Possibly there is something wrong with the power supply electronic.
So maybe you should ask an ASP for a check.

Please bear in mind that some retailers sell supposedly 'new' batteries that are really 'new old stock'.

This should not happen with a reputable supplier, but could if the seller is simply redistributing unsold stock from elsewhere.

Hopefully yours does not fall in to this category, but I have experienced this myself, whereby a battery described as 'new' required several attempts at charging before it could be coaxed back in to life. The symptoms you describe are similar to this.

Just a thought.
