    See title. I tried unplugging and replugging the battery; no good. Currently I'm at 0% battery power, running only because I'm plugged in.

    Why won't the darn thing charge?

    The charging seems to be on-and-off-again. Right now the light is on, and it's charging just fine. What's weird is that the battery has clearly been used, even though I've had it plugged in the whole time. Stranger still, I have the display set to be dimmer when on battery power, yet during battery-power use (while plugged in, remember), the display stays fully lit.

    About a year old.

    HP with Windows Vista Business. Do you need more specifics?

    OK nothing of this nature has occurred in awhile. Perhaps it has corrected itself. If the problem recurs, I will start a new thread.

    It's back. :(

    I wonder if it has something to do with the physical connection of the battery. When I set it on a hard surface, like it is now, it charges fine. But when it sits in my lap, the problem often occurs.
