My battery on my computer doesn't work unless I have it plugged in (it will just shut down otherwise).
I got a new replacement battery from the manufacturer but I usually have my laptop plugged in so....
1. Should I put in the new battery even though I can use the old dead one just by plugging it in? (my computer in the bottom right hand corner has an x through the battery suggesting me to replace it)
2. If I don't put in the new battery, how should I store it?
3. Is keeping the old battery in my computer going to cause any harm?

Thanks for the help!

You shouldn't need a battery in the laptop in order for it to work properly, if your not going to use the new battery in the laptop charge it to about 50% then remove it from the laptop. I am guessing you use the laptop as a desktop replacement and don't need the battery very often?

As a commuting college student, I used to bring my laptop to school and use it with the battery but now that I am near the end of school, I just use it at home like I would a desktop so I don't really need to use the battery anymore since I can plug it in.
