I am at a loss to understand what can cause this.
I have a toshiba laptop, model: Satellite Pro L450-13M.
My son has a toshiba laptop, model: Satellite L500-1XC.
First of all my son told me his lappy will only work on mains adaptor only; message from
battery icon is 'plugged in not charging'. Googing presents a lot of info from forums on this problem, with some suggestions working for some and not for others. So no conclusion reached so far.
My lappy is used only infrequently, every 2 months or so - to keep it updated mainly. So I thought I would just check it today and was aghast to find that it would not charge! - 74% charge and going down. When the ac adaptor is switched on the charging light only comes on for 1 sec. Battery icon says 70% with xxx time remaining.
Surely both laptops can't have bad batteries? Is there a clock inside batteries that counts down to the day it expires?
