purchased a new battery from a third party vendor on eBay and am
testing it out now. The battery seems to charge, but when I pull the AC
plug out a buzzing emanates from around the battery compartment, and
Windows does not indicate that a battery is present. The computer seems
to stay on, but with intermittent "flashes" where the screen dims for a
split second and the buzzing stops. Pressing the test button on the
battery shows that it is fully charged.
Any ideas what is going on? Is there some part which I can replace on
the motherboard (inverter?) that can make this problem go away? The
only thread I found which seemed relevant is this one:
Help much appreciated!
