Faulty laptop battery inhibits mains power?

  Trikie 20:03 11 Feb 2010

My Gateway MX6635 laptop signals a faulty battery. Connecting the mains adapter still gives no power to either run the laptop or try to charge the battery.

Could a faulty battery cause this? I don't want to pay for a new battery and find that there is some other cause for this.

Will the laptop run with the battery removed and run off mains power only?

How old is your laptop, take it back if less than 12months
