Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R60 Notebook ?

I bought a notebook and it works fine on a/c power, but the battery is at 0% and no matter how long I leave it on charge it will not move from this. Have had the battery replaced by store I bought it from, but same problem. Try to charge battery for the first time and it doesn't charge. Checked on the computer if battery ok, it says it is. How do I charge the battery? I bought the computer overseas, so can't go back to store again. Thanks


Answers :

Sounds to me like the charging circuit is fried but the power circuit to the motherboard is intact . It is a motherboard problem or a circuit in the power structure.
It would appear that your charger is at fault. See if one of your friends might have the same laptop and try his/her charger.
