Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

The battery died when the power adaptor was plugged in. The light to show the battery was being charged was not lit but the light on the power supply was. I am guessing its the battery. I have had some problems with the lead but have given it a wiggle and it has started charging again.I have a Packard Bell Easynote M5255 Please help.


Answers :

Just check the Battery diagnostics if you have the software installed...If it is there then it will be in Start - Help & Support - Troubleshotting Tools - Battery Check.......If it shows the battery needs to be replaced contact Packard Bell...Since you told me that the A/C Adapter is not functioning and after you wiggled the lead it started functioning then if the battery test passes you will have to ask for a new A/C Adapter...
