This generally signifies an issue with the battery and that it is shorting out which causes it to discharge like this.
How old is the battery? And whats the make and model of the Laptop?

I bought it a few months ago & it has had the problem right from the start. I have forgotten the model, can you tell me where I find it please.

Usually on a label Maxine on the bottom.
But if it happened from the start, the battery is faulty and is covered by the warranty.
I advise you asap to return it to have the battery replaced as this is done at no cost, while the warranty is valid.
But the battery is faulty and will need to be replaced.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Could I just return the battery or do I have to return the whole laptop as I am unable to do this until the end of October as I am going away tomorrow until then.

They will usually want the entire laptop Maxine, but you need to check with the place of purchase for their policy.
