    I hope someone could help me. My battery won't charge and without the
    battery my laptop does not power up.

    I thought the problem was the battery and I bought a new one and now
    it is working but the battery is still not charging and I am sure it
    will power off shortly.

    Can anyone tell me what might be the problem? Can it be something
    internal?

    Sounds like your charger/adaptor is bad.

    The old battery wouldn't charge. The new battery won't charge. The LT
    wouldn't come up when it had an uncharged old battery but connected to
    the charger/adapter. Let me see; what can this be?

    The good news is that when you get a new adapter, you will probably have
    a extra/spare battery for traveling because the old one is likely still
    good. The bad news is that it usually costs a lot to replace both a
    battery and the adapter, unless you get a good deal somewhere. Some
    laptops aren't worth replacing a battery and an adapter.

    I have such a love-hate relationship with laptops that so far I have
    refused to buy one. I even put together a rolling desktop computer
    which accesses my router with an 'extra' access point to avoid buying a
    LT to use in another part of the house that doesn't have ethernet for
    the LAN.

    Damn. Could've culled a Google Grouper, right there.
