Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I can't charge my batteries. When I plug in with the batteries, it says "0% available (plugged in, not charging)" Any ideas?

Answers :

Sounds to me like a problem with the charger. That would be your best bet anyway is to check and see if the unit that charges the batteries (or if its a power supply that plugs into the laptop) is putting out the correct voltage. The voltage is on the power supply or charger. You will of course need something that can check DC voltage.
