My laptop's had it. A message popped up today 'plugged in, not charging, replace battery'. Oops.
I've had it for close to four years and haven't replaced anything off of it, so I guess it's about time. Does anybody know where I can find a battery replacement? It's the compaq presario CQ56 (don't know if that's a relevant name / number but it's on the laptop :lol:) Dad says you can get them online 'somewhere' for cheap... but he doesn't know where.
I'm sure you can contact the Compaq company, or browse online, people are always selling parts
eBay is your answer! They seem to have batteries for the CQ56 starting at like $20 or so with shipping:
I'm so suspicious of buying computer parts online (but I'm suspicious of almost everything online). I honestly didn't even think about checking ebay though... duh. Thanks Jinx!
The first seller on the link I sent you has sold over 700,000 items with a 99% feedback rating. :)
Pull out the battery and check the details on it. Then look up a local battery retailer in the phone directory or online (preferably the sort that specialise in batteries - everything from motor vehicle batteries to phone batteries or whatever) and give them a call and ask if they have your battery in stock.
