I have a lenovo ce 0700. When i plug it in there is a picture of a battery with a lightning bolt. The home page comes on but freezes. Do i need a new battery?
Thank you.

"When i plug it in there is a picture of a battery with a lightning bolt."

This generally means that the battery is charging...

"The home page comes on but freezes."

Not really sure what you mean by that. The opening screen for Win10? Your browser? You need to elaborate further...

"Do i need a new battery?"

Probably not. Sounds like a virus/malware scan may be in order though...

Windows doesn't have a "home page" (web browsers do however) so I don't even understand that part.

You know the battery needs replacing when you plug laptop in to mains socket and says in Windows system tray "Plugged in not charging" when you hover the mouse pointer over the battery/power icon.

What are you plugging in? The battery or the charger?
If the laptop works fine without the battery plugged in, changes are high that the battery is the problem.
