i've had my netbook for little over a year (barely over warranty) now the battery won't charge but shows icon of plugged in and charging (but not charging at all). so i thought the battery was dead so tested it on a diff mini and sure enough the batter was dead. bought new non oem battery, plugged it in and it charged half way and stopped. now it's not charging anymore and will only work while plugged in. I take the battery out of mine and put it in another mini to test, it charges just fine. so it must be my mini not charging the battery. now the battery is completely gone, it seems like it doesn't run while plugged in either. it'll turn on while plugged in and work for a while and would shut off after a few and won't turn back on. i'd leave it for a while and try again, with the same thing happening. works for a few then off.
