Trouble with my laptop

  1. Apr 21, 2008 #1
    The strangest thing happened to my laptop. I can turn on my laptop with the battery outlet attached to my laptop. But, even though my battery outlet has been attached to my laptop for an hour or so , and I unattached my laptop, I am no longer able to turn on my laptop. A battery is attached to my laptop.

    Could battery laptops stop functioning?

    Is the battery charging when your laptop is plugged in, or is the laptop simply running from the mains? It sounds like the latter. You should have some battery light somewhere that will tell you.

    Sounds like the battery or the charger is bad.
