my advent 7113 laptop wont charge up. I have had a power tester on the mains charger and it shows 20.2 volts so i know thats ok. when i scroll the mouse over the battery symbol on the task bar it says plugged in and charging but 0% available, and the battery symbol normally falls and rises to indicate chrging but just stops at the bottom. i can leave it charging for several hours but as soon as i remove the mains lead it bleeps and goes off within 5 secs,has anyone any ideas,,thanks peter

new battery?

Sounds as if your battery is kaput-dead-expired.

Does your laptop work ok from the Mains?
