Answer to "Why does my Laptop only work when the charger is plugged in?"I don’t know why but my laptop did the same thing. Then the hinges started breaking. We noticed that some screws on the bottom were missing. I replaced them and the hinges were back to normal. After than I checked on it and the laptop was working without being plugged in 24/7! I don’t know why it worked but it did. Check your laptop for missing screws!
