HP Pavilion G7 - battery plugged in, not charging

This is the exact same problem I'm having with my Pavilion g7.  I've bought 2 new batteries for it.  They work correctly for a short period of time, such as 3 months, then the same problem appears.  0%, Not charging.  This cannot be a case of bad batteries.  There is something going on with the battery charging system.  I did not test the batteries to see if they were still good on another system as I don't have another Hp laptop.  It is possible the charging system is damaging them, or some trigger set within the software is too tight.  None of the procedures mentioned so far worked on my system including replacing the batteries.  This defect pretty much degrades this HP laptop to a desktop, as it now always must be plugged in.

HP Pavilion G7 - battery plugged in, not charging

I tried this suggested procedure several times with no change in indications.  I'm hesitant to buy yet another battery for an older labptop like this one.  It does cause me to question the reliability of newer HP laptops as this problem continues to remain undetected and unsolved after all this time.
