    This is very helpful. Any ideas on why I cannot get the charger to charge the battery? I have replaced the DC jack with a new one as it was broke. I put the battery back in and put cover back on. Plugged in the charger and nothing. The computer still won’t charge. Because the battery is dead, I cannot do any BIOS updates or anything like many others talk about.

      Renae, it’s likely the battery is dead and has to be replaced. Does the laptop turn on at all? Does it turn on with the battery disconnected?
      Try reconnecting the battery just in case. Maybe the connection between the battery and the motherboard is bad.
