Any techie guys out there that could help me .
The missus has a Sony vaio and for a while now it's being popping up on screen that no battery can be detected. The laptop only works if it is plugged into the mains.
So do I just need get the battery make and buy a new one on amazon?
Any advice would be appreciated thanks

If it works could save ye a few bob. vgp-bps2 is the seriel no. pm me. Check and see if it is compatable with the model of laptop, yer more than welcome to it.

Slightly off topic, but a great tip. If you need to charge any smart phone or tablet quickly, go to settings, and turn on airplane mode. It shuts down most of your applications, but watch it charge back up in 3 times the speed. You won't get calls/texts etc during, but no big deal.

Also at night you can switch to airplane on your mobile and the alarm still works next am if you use it, and very little battery used, again it won't take calls or recieve texts during the airplane on mode, but still good tip.

Seen as we've gone of topic and hopefuly this is within the rules of the forum-
i've recently got my 73 year old uncle on-line,long time DFC fan,go's to nearly all games and loves the thowwnn.Problem is he's using an old machine of mine which i cant update beacuse the disc drive wont open and i cant update the system and he's using a mid-band dongle which is desperate slow.If anyone has an old pc thats running xp or better i'll be willing to lay the shillings into your hand providing its not €50 or more.We dont need any keyboards or monitors.Friend of mine willing to pick up any week day in town.Also no problem with the memory storage on this,just a yoke for browsing the net but that can pick up wifi.
Thanks

Lads thanks for the advice and offers of assistance . I managed to order a battery from Amazon and it seems to be working and holding a charge . The missus is happy and I can stream the footie now which won't work on my iPad
