My laptop suddenly started having this problem yesterday. Because I've been extremely, I had not used it in several days and it had been closed/hibernating during that time. I opened it up to use it just for a couple minutes yesterday and it seemed to be working just fine. I shut it down. Then I turned it back on, and after it had fully booted, I unplugged the AC power to move the laptop away from my desk... but it instantly shut off. It did not shut down, as it usually does when the battery is low, it just went black and then it would not turn back on unless it was plugged in.
I would really appreciate ANY advice on this!!! Is there something wrong with the battery pack? Why isn't the battery being recognized?
Thank you for you help!
