Laptop Questions? Ask a Laptop Technician for Answers ASAP!
Hi there, I am Cris and will be glad to assist you with your question.
The laptop can still run even though the battery no longer works as long as you keep it plugged to the power adapter. Your battery seems to have gone dead with use over the amount of time you have had your laptop.
I can locate a battery for you to purchase, would you like to find one for you?
