You should be able to run the computer without the battery. There may be a problem with the internal power switch. The computer should automatically switch to AC power when you plug it in, and also charge the battery. Your laptop may run of the battery continuously and when you plug it in charges the battery and doesn't switch. Just a shot in the dark others may have more suggestions. I am not sure if replacing the battery will solve your problem.
