Hi, My laptop is currently 4 years old above. Something just happened. After charging it to full, the orange led indicator suddenly just blinked. I dunno what happened. Is it the battery that's damaged? or the laptop itself?

Just a while ago I was trying to turn it on with just the uncharged battery but it won't turn on. Then I've tried to plug it in and it started without me trying to press the power button. The time and date in bios got reset btw. embarrassed.gif Please help.

Hi,
I'm going to guess that you might want to get the battery checked. If that's not an option it might be time to replace it. Most batteries don't last much over three years without a lot of TLC.
The time/date reset indicates that the CMOS battery isn't holding it's charge. Taken together it's beginning to sound more like a component has failed and is shorting things to ground.
If that's the case then I seee your options as fixing or replacing. My recommendation would be to replace, if at all possible.
Keep us posted
