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. I have a Sony vgntz150n, it runs the battery down in a few days when the laptop is totally off, I have a second battery that Sony sent me as a replacement and it does the same thing. This seems to be a chronic Sony laptop issue according to my research on the web. Sony refuses to acknowledge the problem. Anyone know something I don't know?\015
Change original battery. check dc jack charger.
