How come my laptop battery will not charge over 3%?

by on January 24, 2011

Q: I’ve got a 3 year old Dell Inspire and I’m having problems with battery and performance. First off the Battery doesn’t charge, but the laptop powers off AC power from the cable, it says its charging but never actually charges over 3%. I’m Wondering what could be the problem to this? My other concern is the performance of the laptop, recently its been freezing frequently when going online, its a dated laptop, but I’m not doing anything over’lly extreme with it? Any help will be appreciated thanks 🙂

    The first thin to try in this situation would be to buy a new laptop battery. See dell’s website for information on replacement batteries.
