Is it plugged in while it crashes?

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

UPDATE: i took out the battery last night and shut it down. then this morning i left it on while i was at work, ive been on for about an hour now and it hasn't skipped a beat. this is my first laptop so i'm not too cluey on them. might it be a faulty battery?


INFO:
Model: Toshiba Satelite A200
Age: Baught it roughly 2.5 years ago
Previous Problems: Extremely short "unplugged" life-span (about 2 hours on lowest settings)


I know its not PP related, but i've had troubles in the past and this forum has been beyond great with helping me fix my computing issues. and i wish i remember the people that helped me so i can thank them again.

Taking out the battery solving it really means the battery is broken. Never use it again, defective Li-Ion batteries can go boom.

Unless that message is consistent even after you charge it for a good few hours, it should be fine. Otherwise, I would get a new battery.

in my experience w/laptops, i've come to find that if you let it charge completely before actually turning it on for the first time, it will be for the better.. apparently from what i've read/heard is that if you let a laptop battery charge to halfway then you turn it on for the first time the batter thinks 50% is actually 100%.. if that makes since, it happened with my friends iPhone as well, i told him that he didn't let it charge enough..

also, when on your laptop, instead of plugging it in when the battery is about to go dead let it die, then plug it in. it's better for the battery than letting it constantly being charged..
good luck with your current issue, but if i were you i'd just "properly" dispose of your old battery and buy a new one.

So it's reporting 0% no matter what? Sounds like a software issue not in OS but more primitave. Not fluent with the NTLDR of vista and up, I know there is a new boot loader but have not found cause to read about it. This could be the time then. I wouldn't buy JS without trying that bat on another PC (if possible, if store bought take it there and try on another they have in stock. Bribe them personally with 10 bucks and say lunch (always sounds good) if they are sketchy) and trying new chipset software.

Get SpeedFan (google it) and see if temps and other specs are being reported correctly.

100% correct. Lith Ions have 'memory' and remember the how nice you were to it the first charge. Hehe.



But in this case I think his bat is fine it's just reporting 0% and it's starying on, correct senor?
