Laptop battery causes jitter in laptop-response
I've got an older laptop (Acer Aspire 1640) that responds terribly when the battery is actually inserted. The mouse-movement is very jittery, and it seems though the entire system is sluggish too. When the battery is removed, and the laptop is operating off of the adapter, it works just fine. Does anybody know what may cause this, and whether or not I can remedy it? At the very least, if I could have the battery inserted without the laptop detecting it, that would be sufficient - without the battery the laptop doesn't sit flat, and wobbles like a bad wal-mart shopping cart.
