Why doesn't the laptop work on e poer if battery is dead?
I have a T-42 IBM usually work on it at home so it is always pluggged in. the battery has said 98% charge forever then today it said 2% remaining and thenit 5 minuteslater the machine shut down. The laptop will not runat allit foes on and clicks off in <10secs. I took out the battery and tried to run it on elctric only but nothing lights up as if it is receiving no juice/
Is the battery a necessary componenet and if so d o you have to let it run on battery everyso often?
Is this a good question?
