This repair would be needed if the laptop is no longer turning after being plugged in for an extended period of time, resulting in the battery being unable to hold a charge. When removing the battery, be sure to be very careful as it is very fragile. Also the wires that connect the battery to the laptop itself are very fragile, therefore it is crucial that they are handled with great care.
