My laptop is showing 'charging 68%' problem is, its not charging.

Hi guys hope you can help a newbie here (62 years & counting) My daughters laptop (Toshiba Qosmio X500) battery died, as that's what came up on the screen, so being a good dad I bought her a new battery,(6 cell) fitted it, worked right away, switched on mains power, then switched off, battery was slowly dying so put on to mains again. Left it on for a while, was showing fully charged, took it off mains let it die down slightly, but before I could switch it back on mains the system shut down, re booted the laptop, battery indicator showed 68% available plugged in charging, switched off the mains & the laptop died Switched on again, left this for a few hours still came up with the same reading, powered down the laptop left it on mains overnight, turned it back on still the same reading, long story short , purchased 3 batteries ranging from 6 cell to 12 cell, plus a new power adaptor, still no change except one of the 12 cell bats showed 36% & the other 12% available plugged in charging.
So any ideas guys?

If you need any more info I will be glad to oblige.
