Hi there, I own a lenovo n100, which is around one year old, and for 95% of its life I have always run the laptop from the mains.
Today, I ran the laptop from the battery, and after 5 minutes the system went dead, and now I can only run from the mains, doesn't even charge.
When I plug the laptop into the mains, the battery light shows as green for 5 seconds, and then disappears.
If the battery has blown (which seems strange), obviously there isn't much I can do, but there could there be any other reason for this problem?
I am not too keen on forking out £200 on a battery, if this is quite common as I have no issue running the laptop just from the mains - windows seems to think the battery still has 90% life when i click the power meter.
Anyone here got any suggestions or advice?
