Why does my Laptop only work when the charger is plugged in?

My laptop only turns on when the charger is plugged in and even then it fails to charge. As soon as I remove the charger from my laptop, it completely shuts down and I have to once again turn it on by plugging in the charger, pressing the power button and continuing to keep it plugged in until I stop using it....

Replace the battery, they're cheap: http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keyword...

"I have the same problem, it was fixed after I bought a new battery, it was saying before I booted it up that the batter wasn’t working properly anymore, so when I got a new batter the problem was solved. This happens because of 4 reasons

# Battery was physically damaged (like your computer fell or something)

# Battery has reached it’s full potential and the lithium-ion has died, so it can’t be charge anymore

# You keep your computer plugged in when it doesn’t need to be charged so the battery overheats and after too much over heating the battery basically dies.

# Your computer has been hacked or infected with a virus, and when the motherboard blocks connection with the battery it cannot receive power from it. I don’t know how hackers do it, but somehow they can block connection from your battery to the motherboard.

The only other way you can get this fixed without replacing the batter is calling a technician and seeing what they think about the situation.Hope this helps. :)"

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!
