I was going to do all the reseating, but thought I'd ask away before doing that. Anyways, I did that and wierd enough, theres a green light on the machine now instead of red. Maybe I've had it plugged in long enough for a red light to turn green.
Also maybe I will check dealextreme for some type of a battery thats universal.
Have you heard of a universal battery? I have ordered a universal laptop ac about a week ago.
But it's obviously not really worth it for me to order a battery for every laptop I encounter. I have 7 laptops here I've collected over time, most about a min pentium 4, various brands, and never of the batteries are interchangable. The voltages and amps are quite +3 / -3 voltages different, even the connectors have more slot/pins and the location of the connectors, varys computer to computer.
Do I absolutely need a battery to see if it will boot up. Even my oldest laptop 11 years old, can boot with no battery only AC.
