Assuming its working on mains?

Laptop Battery not showing Charging 1. Turn off the computer, 2. Take the battery out 3. Take out the power supply 4. Push the power button down for 30 seconds. 5. Reconnect power supply 6. Then the battery. Should now show 100% charged. This is because sometimes the mother board gets static and this clears it and the reason it showed not charging was because it was fully charged.

Follow instructions again but when it comes to connecting the battery again don't.Just use the power supply and see if it will run without the battery.

Just much of the same.I use Fruit Bat /\0/\'s method with a few laptops and it usually works,Tried it on my grandaughters laptop and it would not work so tried again and after removing the battery and power supply hold on to a radiator and press the start button for 1 minute Put the power supply on again without the battery hold the radiator once more and press the start button,it worked for me a couple of times so worth another try.

I suppose it is over a year old and out of warranty.
