does the laptop run if you remove the battery and then just use the AC adapter? If so, your battery may be dead.,
You never said the brand and model of your laptop so you can google to see if there is a battery recall for that product.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Hi I have a Gatway NV78 it's about a year old. It has been working if I remove the battery and just use the AC adapter. I guess it is the battery... Is there a way to test the battery to confirm that it is dead and not an issue with Windows 7 ??
Thanks

check with gateway there may be a glitch with the win 7 and battery sensor, if you leave the machine on power and switch to battery does it still work on battery alone?
