Need help figuring out battery situation
I will post some links to some screen shots, however basically my computer is not able to charge past 0%, turns off as soon as its unplugged, and only charges when in a certain position. This has been going on for a while but with the school year coming up i was wondering if i should get a new battery, or if i need a whole new laptop.

If its an older laptop you need a new battery. This rarely happens on windows 7 laptops and below

The battery is most likely toast. I have the same situation with this Lenovo laptop I got a couple weeks ago.

Need a new battery, when you get a new one. Charge your laptop to complete(with it off) then use the battery til it dies. Never charge the battery while your running your computer. Drains the batter and it will die quicker and less time usage.
