Yes, as long as it's connected to the mains
Do I need to close all before I shut down?
Also, when I knock off the mains power the laptop shuts immediately and when I restart I get the message that My machine wasn't shut down properly.
As before, laptop starts OK when plugged in but the moment I remove the mains lead it shuts down immediately. No life whatsoever unless plugged in. Battery Icon is showing 0% available (plugged in, not charging) I really need some reassurance that a new battery will resolve the problem before I purchase one.
I gave a rating of excellent but would still like to know why the laptop wouldn't work off battery alone when it showed over 60% full. As soon as I disconnected from the main it shut down? I haven't bought a new battery yet. Still not 100% sure that will sort it!
