Compaq R3000 and new 12 cell battery

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I have Compaq Presario R3000 with 100% working 8-cell battery.
I bought around a year ago (no more than 1 year) - a new 12-cell battery,
100% original,
and I tried it yesterday and it... Does not work.
After inserting this battery into laptop, and connecting to the adaptor, the
orange power led lights only for about one minute, and than it turns off...
It doesn't charge.
I have written to HP, and they told me to perform steps:
Please perform these steps and let me know the result: 1.Disconnect the AC
Adapter. 2. Remove the battery 3.Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds
to 1 minute. 4.Reconnect the Battery and AC adapter. 5.Turn on the notebook

I did it, and nothing has changed.
I have probably the newest BIOS - F35. (after update)

Does anybody now how to make this battery work?

Please help.
Thanks in adavnce,
best regards.
