Last Modified: 2012-05-10

The battery would only charge to 85%, so I bought a replacement.  Put in the replacement, and plug in the ac adapter.   The battery light is on red for a few minutes, then goes out.  Power management tellss me I got 0% juice in the new battery.

Computer will only run on adapter now.

Help  Thanks
