    I just got a used 2003 Sony Vaio laptop (Model PGC-FRV27) and after cleaning up a messy hard drive, it seems to run nicely, except I can only use it while plugged in to the power adapter/charger!

    I bought a new battery thinking this should be an easy solution, but no go. The battery charge light blinks, which indicates the battery is recognized and being charged-right?
    I just returned the new battery to the Ebay dealer (explaining it won't take a charge) and they will only replace it with another one
    I think it's a problem with some connection or other hardware issue.
    Can anyone please help me with this?
    THANKS!!!

    >>>> I also tried increasing the memory, but it isn't being recognized either. (See seperate thread post above)....
