More than likely. Could be a cpu issue as well. Either way you are more or less screwed. Time to buy yourself a new laptop. It won't be worth repairing unless you can solder.

Are you using it with the PSU plugged to it? I'm thinking it's a battery issue.

I think it is your battery. You get the amperage from the battery to power your system. The PSU alone cannot do it.

I meant the battery as the source of power for your laptop. What you told me was a pretty good indication that it's the battery. The battery holds enough amperage to power your system. The PSU does not have enough to power it on its own. It only helps to feed/charge the battery.

If you could, have your battery tested or try another battery from someone with the like system. I could be wrong but this is a strong suspect.
