Contacts looks pretty good, nothing loose or bended

So you think that they are making contact when the battery is inserted. Well sorry mate I think your issue then is the charger built into the lappy and that means repair or replacement.

i think yes, they are making contact, the board its kind of cheap, (28-44us dollars) but i was wondering maybe something disconnected inside, some wire some connector... i dont know its weird, because if it were a connector, then it should be able to use (discharge ) the battery, it even shows "charging" the battery in the system...
the board definitely have a problem because the wireless does not work neither, and the card is good, but it does not work under any OS

At this point it sounds above my pay scale. I would try to get those contact pins pulled out slightly as maybe the charging pin isn't making contact. That's all I have besides replace the mobo with the other working one and if that solves then you know.

I just cant believe this.. now was when i had time to purchase a new board and to install it.... and i just cant believe it...

i have handled more than 20 of these little great netbooks and no issue at all, of any type...
and could it be possible to buy a board with exactly the same problem!?
i just cant believe this, after hours of meticulous installation... THE PROBLEM STILL PERSIST!

HOW?

if i changed the motherboard, what remain the same, the ram the hdd and the cpu...
i also thought it could be due 64bit operating system and the laptop not being full compatible wiht 64bit (although hap says it is )

i tried with a linux version running from a usb, without ram, without hdd, so i discard ram issue, hdd or 64 bit OS...

whats left? the cpu!?
can the cpu cause that?

help please

yep.. me too. i cant believe i am running this luck... two motherboard with the same very odd issue (i should play lottery or something)

the last test i performed (10 minutes ago), was with amperimeter, the laptop turned off, connected without battery, uses 25ma, with battery 25ma and the numbers didnt move a bit ... i was expecting at least the battery to receive current for at LEAST one or two seconds.. but no, even a trace a of the slightest smallest current .... its something physically broken damaged.. but God.. two boards with the same problem...?

i even test it with both boards outside the laptop's plastic (to discard something from the board i dont know a bended plastic or something that could affect.. [kind of desperate test] but nothing at all

If the laptop works using the AC adapter & works using a charged battery, then the CPU is not the problem. So the problem has to be the battery charger, either it is faulty or there is a broken wire or connection.
Randomly removing items & replacing them could easily end up causing the laptop to stop working.
At present you can use the laptop with a fully charged battery or using the AC adapter, so at least you can use it.
Buying 2nd hand items is always risky as often the reason they are sold by someone is because there is a problem with it.
