Battery Will not charge on G71-340US

My laptop all of sundden stopped charging, the laptop will operate if plugged in but it dies as soon it unplugged. Also windows 7 reconizes that it is plugged in and not charging the battery. Nothing has been dropped or abused in anyway.

Re: Battery Will not charge on G71-340US

I wrote last week that I would update the bios, since this was the first anyone has suggested it in any web forum. After I did that I did all of the usual recommendations, and nothing worked. This laptop is a little over a year old, bought in march 2011, and I should not have problems like this. Any other suggestions??? I think it may be some circuitry that went bad and maybe the mobo needs replacing. Please let me know. Also, I am using a new battery. Thanks!!!
