I have had this laptop for nearly 5years with no trouble at everything. Abruptly I remarked my poweradaptor acquiring warm at the end inserted into the machine and thebattery was not charging. It finially reached zero and the laptopdied. I purchased a novel power lead and attempted to do an overnightcharge.
The battery charge red light remainedwith for nearly 8 hours and then started to flash as if the level wascritical. I switched the machine with and it worked alright for about3 minutes then it died again. I presume that my battery has expiredand have ordered a novel one.
Only to fulfill my curiosity while cansomebody please confirm that this specific model will not operate ifthe battery has no charge/is faulty or has been separated fully andthe machine only has a power lead adaptor like the single source ofsupply.
