Elaborate "can't get battery to charge ?", what battery? Assuming it is a Laptop's , is it not even turning on when AC is plugged out, or does it say "plugged in, not charging" or does it turn off quicker than before?

5 years? Sounds about right, that's when most laptop batteries completely wear out and die. You'll have to replace your battery.

Some tips on increasing battery longevity:

1. If you are on AC power all the time, discharge your laptop battery to about 50-60% and take it out of the laptop and store it somewhere safe.
2. If you absolutely want to keep your battery alive for a LONG time, put your battery in a cold environment like a fridge. Just make sure you leave the battery out for several hours if you do leave it in your fridge (when you want to use your battery), so condensation has a time to escape into the air.

Sorry for the ambiguity. 1st off its a 5 yr old Toshiba Satellite P845t-4310. It "opens & charges" ; but not past 8% or so. Works fine if plugged in w/AC adapter( which is actually a rectifier Changing incoming single phase AC to DC). I guess it's time for a New battety. Staying plugged in sorta defeats the purpose of a wireless laptop.
