I have an Advent laptop battery that won't charge up. I've tried a different chrger but get the same problem. At times the battery starts to charge, then stops after a few seconds.
Apart from needing a new battery, could it be anything else? The laptop doesn't switch on when plugged into the mains either. Does that mean a more significant problem, or does it need a good battery to be able to work off the mains?
Thank you for this. I've tried getting inside the case and it's a real bugger. Too many tiny screws everywhere. I've taken out all the ones I can see but the back still won't come off. Perseverance I guess?
Make sure that the screws go back in the right positions. You'll find some that are longer than others. Can't give you any instructions as I'm not familiar with the Advent case. Post back as to how you fare.
