Hi,
Having some trouble with my brand new HP 6735s.
Starting yesterday whenever I plug my AC charger into the laptop the power icon says: plugged in, not charging and that the battery it at 0%. If I take out the power cord a warning comes up saying battery is at 0% and to save any work. I have tried changing my power plan and still nothing.
Thanks.

Pull the battery and plug in the power. Does it run? Charger is probably OK but battery may be faulty. Plug and unplug the battery a few times to clean the contacts and try charging again. Won't start with the battery out? Faulty charger. It is under warranty, take it back.
