Re: Battery life...
Most people don't realize that if you work on your laptop all the time, and leave it plugged in, this will eventually damage the battery, and cause problems such as what you are experiencing. About the only choice you have now is to purchase a new battery. Keep in mind that you want to take out the battery if you plan on using the laptop plugged in for an extended period of time. You should only plug the laptop in when charging the battery- or if the battery is full, take out the battery while it is plugged in.
