I have a three-month-old Toshiba Laptop with a battery already installed at the time I purchased it. I keep it in my house plugged into an electric outlet. My question is this: If my battery dies out can I still use the Laptop plugged into the electric outlet? Would I have to remove the dead battery or can I keep the dead battery in? Would keeping the dead battery in cause any damage to my Laptop? Thank you for your response. Murrar

If your not using the battery its best to store it out of the laptop at 50% charge. If the battery does die on it you can use the laptop off the power cord without the battery. If its bad I would remove it to prevent damage to the laptops charging system and from potentialy leaking cells.
