Compaq Windows Vista Laptop Not Charging

  MogsyDude 21:37 12 Nov 2007


I have a Compaq Windows Vista Laptop that will not charge, Every now and again it charges! (about 25% of the time)

When I plug it in it says "(0% Available) Plugged In, Not Charging"

Can anyone shed any light on this please?

If the machine is under a year old I would take it back.

If you do take it back , please make sure you back up EVERYTHING , it's not unknown for a repairer to completely wipe the hard drive clean even if you ask them not to , they are only responsible for getting the PC working again , not the data stored on it ' and of course , if it is replaced then you'll lose everything anyway .

I am taking it back to PC World tomorrow, I'll tell them whats happening with it and see what they say about it.

I took it back, I now have a brand new laptop, and it was the upgrade from the old one as the old one i had was end of line sale.
