Batteries not charging.

The laptop runs when using the power cable but not on batteries. The laptop is docked. In control panel-power options -advanced, it shows the battery is 5% charged and keeps constantly toggling between battery and ac power. Also the power icon on the task tray keeps appearing an disappearing every second.The charging is not exceeding 5%.
Can you please reply me back urgently..

tried draining the battery fully and then charging..but the problem persists..

Re: Batteries not charging.

My laptops model is HP COMPAQ NC4200. I dont remember the battery model. The battery % is always 5% though I have added an external battery as well. So can I expect the problem with both the batteries?? Will it work fine if i change my batteries??
