Howdie. I recently dragged my wife's laptop out of the cupboard to try and get it working for her (after almost a year of sitting in that cupboard) and found that Windows was giving a battery warning. I bought a new battery but there seems to be A problem with it. For some reason the battery light just blinks orange but the laptop won't power on. I have tried taking the battery off and holding the power button for 10 seconds. The weird thing is that when the old battery is on the laptop it will power on, the battery won't hold a charge though. Any ideas please?
