Re: Laptop battery not powering computer, charged 97%
Being full and being able to hold that capacity are two different things.
How old is the laptop? If it's used ALOT and is more then 2-3yrs old, toss it(the battery) and get a new one.
Thanks. I was wondering about the battery because she didn't report deterioration of the battery performance...just the sudden failure of it. My experience with batteries is that they fade with shorter and shorter life, rather than instant collapse.
I do think it's about 4 years old and may need to be replaced. I'm wondering if the mobo may have issues or if battery drivers may have been corrupted with the sketchy software that was inadvertently installed. I noted that several things started to fail all at the same time (see how network adapter settings won't save from session to session).
