I'm not sure if this would be a hardware or a software issue as I have never come across an issue like this before.

 

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7, created my own recovery drive using Grub4dos and set up my computer just as I wanted it, installed some basic software and installed Deep Freeze. (why I took such security and backup measures, I just wanted too)

 

And then for the first time I booted my laptop without being plugged.

 

Log in with laptop plugged in: Everything works fine

Log into windows with laptop unplugged: The screen displays as if the graphics card was going out for about 2-5 minutes.

 

I have no clue what can cause this. At first I thought something was corrupt or the graphics card was going out but then it fixed itself after 2-5 minutes and when I log in with my laptop plugged in it works fine. So neither make sense to me and if it were the graphics card wouldn't it display poorly from boot?

 

If anyone can help me get to the bottom of this it would be greatly appriciated!

Hi cruzer250,

 

If you only used your laptop when its plugged in, It will damage your laptop battery. The battery if not discharged after changing  over a long period of time will cause the cells in the battery to die. 

 

Many battery manufactures recommend changing to 80% battery life and to recharge around 10%  battery life.

 

Hope this helps

It might also be good to note that when the laptop is logged into it starts up within a snap of a finger. It doesn't lag any
