Laptop Power Failure

  Linds 19:35 12 Apr 2006


My laptop has gone mad

The charger appears to be working ok (ie the light comes on when it is plugged in), but when I connect the charger to the laptop, the light on the charger goes crackers and starts flashing away and does not transfer any power to the laptop.

The battery has been knackered for a year or so and does not hold a charge, but this is VERY frustrating

Any ideas ??

Will it work without the battery connected?
