IBM T60 running LMDE 201109. As the battery was not charging I thought it had reached the end of its useful life. So I purchased a new battery this week and had it charging through the power lead for 8 hours yesterday and again today but the meter still records no charge. This is confirmed, because when I unplug the power lead the machine stops.
Can someone please help me as to what steps I should take to determine which part of the laptop charging system may be faulty.
