  1. I have purchaed a new ac charger, battery, and changed the dc power cable and my laptop will not power on unless the battery is fully charged in which i have to charge elsewhere. When it does operate everything is normal it just wont charge the battery. Ant suggestions on what to do next??

    That model has some reported problems with the power jack coming loose... does it appear to be firm?

    Beyond that, 12 percent of new batteries arrive dead or go dead quickly...

    Since you changed all those devices, can we assume you were having problems before you made those purchases?
