Laptop Battery Wont Hold Charge

\015 I have a Sony Vaio laptop and the battery on it will not charge when plugged into the power cord.\015

Answers :

Hi there.
Chances are that one of the cells in the battery is faulty causing it to not charge up, if the laptop runs ok on AC power only then you have to replace the battery, try get a battery that you know works and try that.
