Having problems with your Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook N3520 Notebook ?

I have a Lifebook N3520 and just replaced my battery but is not charging. MAchine is about 3-4 years old. Do I need to update my Bios?


Answers :

I assume that the battery you referring is the main battery pack. If I am correct, I am sure that your problem is the battery pack itself. These are usually Lithium Ion battery and they only have a life span of ~3 years. There is no need to replace your BIOS if your PC is working when it is powered by the AC adapter.

I own a 1 year old Dell Studio 1535. Its original battery died, so I purchased a generic one online. When I turned on the laptop with the battery only (not plugged in), it said battery not recognized,but still the laptop continued to run. The battery was only 47% full. When I plugged in the adapter to charge the battery, it said "Plugged in, but not charging." What should I do to get it to charge? Or is it impossible to charge a generic battery with an original dell adapter?
