MEDION MD96640 - plugged in, not charging

\015 I am running Windows Vista on a MEDION MD96640 laptop. My problem is that my battery does not charge. It has 0% and when it is plugged in to charge the status is ''plugged in, not charging''. I have looked through all my power settings and have found nothing that should cause this. I have tried turning on with cable plugged in, turned off for 5 minutes and restarted. I have left it turned off but plugged in for a few hours, also i have tried leaving it on and plugged in for a few hours. None of these resolved the problem and i am begining to believe it is a hardware problem rather than a software problem. Help?\015

Answers :

There is a possibility that the battery is defective.

Turn the laptop off and remove the battery and AC power. Clean the brass contacts on the battery and the laptop.
Plug in AC power only, boot the laptop up without the battery and go into the BIOS and set the BIOS to default settings. Save the changes and let the laptop boot into Windows. Once in Windows power down the laptop again and remove the AC power.
Reinsert the battery and AC power and boot the laptop up. See if that has helped.

Good luck.
Switch off the laptop computer. Remove the battery. Throw it as far as you can. Then buy a new one. Bingo. Problem solved.
