I was having the same issue everyone seems to have with the Asus laptop with the plugged in/not charging. I thought I solved it by getting a new battery. The new battery worked for two months and now it says that my battery is not detected. Considering I have to take apart the entire computer to reach the battery, does someone know how to see if the computer can detect the battery without removal? I tried the battery "fix" that doesn't fix anything (Device Manager/battery/uninstall/search). The device manager shows, after removal and search for new, that the battery is there. This is very frustrating and I need to have a working battery for times when the power goes out unexpectedly.
