Laptop Power ?

  EARLR 09:08 25 Feb 2008

My wifes lappy thinks that A/C power is plugged in when it's not.
Battery goes dead when its turned off.
Any ideas ?

Hmm, it is obviously not charging as it should, it would appear to me to be a faulty AC connection needing repair.

Lappy charges fine when A/C adapter is attached but when it's not lappy thinks that it is.
Power icon says "on ac power".

But you said, 'battery goes dead' - so it must be either a dud battery or faulty connection.

Will tick resolved
