|Netbook powers on with AC adapter, and battery charges just fine.|
However, once the AC adapter is removed, and the computer is running on the battery, it will no longer detect the AC adapted when I plug it back in.
Thus, even with the power cord plugged in, the netbook will run off of the battery until it eventually shuts down due to low battery status.
In order for battery to charge, I need to shut down the PC, remove the battery, turn on the computer with the AC adapter plugged in, and then insert the battery.
I tried a different AC adapter, same result.
I replaced the power jack (solderless), same result.
When the computer is running off of the battery and I plug in the AC Adapter, it should switch over to AC power, but it doesn't. And the battery does not charge.
The Netbook is about a year old. The battery has been losing a little bit of its longevity, but seems to be working just fine.
Battery issue? Motherboard issue? BIOS issue? any ideas?
A new battery is $30, and I don't want to buy it and waste that money if its not the problem.
