1. The battery probably is not "dead"; it probably is just "discharged" -- needing to be recharged.

Got a friend with a similar computer, where your battery fits into their computer.

Try your battery in their computer, to see if it will recharge.


2. Do you have a Multimeter, that can measure the voltage and amperage output both of your AC adapters?


3. Got a friend with a similar computer, with a compatible AC adapter?

Try that adapter with your computer, to see if it will recharge your battery, and/or give power to your computer.
