I have a compaq laptop and whenever i plug in the charger to the laptop, it says 'Plugged in,Not charging'..My battery has 0% charge left..Whenever i plug it out,the laptop shuts down.I just need to know how to fix it and if buying a new battery would solve the problem because i have been having battery issues for years..

    A laptop battery and charger doesn't last forever and has to be replaced if you have the laptop long enough.

    What's the exact part/product number(P/N) on that Compaq laptop?

    Yes the battery is likely dead.
    Look for a battery utility for the Compaq and that will give you details.

    That's not the answer to the question that I asked you.

    According to that model number laptop battery, you have one of these laptop models:

    Compaq Presario CQ32, CQ42, CQ43, CQ56, CQ62, CQ72, CQ430, CQ630; HP g4, g6, g7, G32, G42, G56, G62, G72; Pavilion dv3-4000, dm4-1000, dv5-2000, dv5-3000, dv6-3000, dv6-6000, dv7-4000, dv7-6000; HP Envy 17-1000, 17-2000 series

    You can buy that battery much cheaper elsewhere instead of paying $120.00 for it at HP.
