    Hi :)
    im new to this forum, and it looks like a good community :)

    Anyway, there is a problem with my computer. My battery is not charging. It says '(pluged in, not charging) but why isnt it?

    I think its because i tryed to play Bioshock 2 on it. It gave me a warning saying that it may be unstable to play, but i took no notice to this. Im not certain it was this, but im guessing it was because when i exit the game, the battery stop'd charging.

    Please help me out.... i will be very grateful :)

    cheers

    Hi there,
    I believe the make of the laptop is called something like a 'conpact' ever heard Of it?
    And it says the not charging thing when I hover my cursor or the battery icon at the bottom task bar.

    Thank you :)

    Turn the PC off and take the power chord out. Start the PC and see if it starts on battery

    Its probably a compaq presario which are made by HP.You might have to replace the battery or you have a bad a/c adapter or an electrical problem of some sort.
