Customer Question

Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. This usually always means the battery is bad, unless the battery's connector is loose. That is normal; any battery loses charge overtime, and will eventually die. Can I provide you the instructions how to disassemble the laptop and check? And can I provide you the website link where you can purchase a new battery online?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.
