Acer Aspire M startup issue

  wordnew1 19:30 18 Feb 2018

My Acer Aspire M laptop has become finicky when starting up. Even with a full battery charge it will only stat up with the charger plugged in, or will attempt to start up then shuts down after a second or two if the charger is not plugged in. Any ideas, or something I should try to remedy this issue? Not exactly an IT whiz here but I can attempt anything rudimentary. Thanks in advance to anyone with an idea or thought(s).

Take the battery out and try on mains only , a bad battery can pull the mains power down and stop the machine from starting.

Thanks for the tip, but I reset the battery from the back of the laptop and all is well. Thanks
