Is the charger kicking out enough power to charge the machine. I've never
really liked aftermarket chargers. Whenever anyone I know has started using
them they've ended up with dead batteries very quickly. I can't honestly
say if there's any connection as I've never used one.

The other possibility is that the charge port is damaged on the machine, or
the charge circuit. Does it boot with no battery installed, I can't
remember if you told us this or not.
