My laptop battery will not charge with my original adapter so I bought a new one, along with a new battery.

Right now the laptop is running with no battery installed per a question from 2007: "If it's not giving you a good connection, it won't allow the laptop to charge the battery. Try taking the battery out and powering the computer only through the power adapter.", proving the power jack is ok.

Now what else could it be? I replaced the adapter cord. This laptop has been without a working battery for a while. The original battery was a 14.8V and this one is an 11.1V, could that be the problem??? ***That is not the problem because the battery was partially charged from the factory and the laptop ran off it but now that it is low, it will not charge again.***

TIA for any and all replies,
Chyann

Yes, that could be the problem. You need to have the same voltage and other specs per the OEM's requirements.

Your system requires 14. 8V and 11.1V is NOT enough to run it.

You need to get yourself the correct battery and charging unit.
