    Hi new to this and in need of simple help. I have a Sony Vaio about 3 years old. Last time I used it it went dead apparently due to needing a recharge. But as I plugged it in, it wouldn't charge and therefore wouldn't turn on. I removed the battery, nothing. I switched to a different charger to see if that would work, nothing. Before I go out and spend money to buy something, I just want to know what to buy. Is it my battery or is it my charger?

    If you are in the US of A, a company called Batteries Plus advertises that they will test the battery.

    Without a device specific to testing laptop batteries & chargers, the only way I know to sort it out is to try to charge the battery in a different computer that is compatible with your laptop's battery.
