I recently bought a new battery, thinking my old one which was a refurbished battery just packed up as it was on the way out. When i put new battery in the power meter reads 52%. The battery is not charging however! When the power plug is pulled out the battery light does not come on! The battery is a brand new 9cell, so im sure it is not the battery. I suspect this is why refurbished battery died, or has it? Any thoughts suggestions would be appreciated as im not so savvy at the tech stuff!
The computer has been running abit slower recently after upgrading memory 3 months ago to 2gb, so wondering if its caught something! I have avast protection. Cheers for ya help!

What a lot of laptop users are not aware of is that if the battery and charging unit are not compatible with each other, the battery will not fully charge or charge at all.

You already have a charging unit. That's what plugs into the laptop and into the wall outlet.

You need to check the ratings on the battery and the ratings on the charging unit to see if they match.
