Default Laptop Battery Problem

sponsored links

 
I was going to turn my laptop on without the charger connected to the laptop, but it wouldent turn on. So then i put the charger on and the laptop turned on! And now i have to always use the charger to turn the laptop on and run it from electricity.

Why is it not working with the battery on its own. Is the battery dead or something, if it is, I never knew a laptops battery would die....

thx, Kev

They do, and depend on the battery type, some will last longer, they are rechargeable batteries after all.

Or you may have a bad battery connection.
