HP nc4010 charges battery, doesn't see it though Tags: Battery Laptops Hewlett Packard Last response: December 7, 2007 3:11 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share villadrive November 19, 2007 7:06:39 PM I have a used HP nc4010 laptop that successfully charges a battery but it will not recognize it for use. Laptop only runs on AC power. Any ideas? NOTE: there are no bent pins in the battery or battery bay. Everything looks normal.

I had a used Fujitsu Siemens that charged the battery to full capacity and died the moment you take the AC power off. villadrive December 7, 2007 3:11:57 PM Exactly! Hmmmmm... that's strange, but worth a try. I can get another one from a friend. Thanks for the tip! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
