Hi, My name is Spencer and i have a Acer Laptop. Now for a year now, my computer would randomly blue screen. not often though. friends told me it was a power failure. But now i am experiencing other problems. Sometimes there would be an X through my battery icon, and it saying "consider replacing your battery". My computer also is been very slow. And when i set it down on a table sometimes it would just shut off. I think my battery is loose or broken. what do you think?

Loose connection possible.  Power cord firmly plugged into power brick?  Is there a power-cord "s-t-r-e-t-c-h" from outlet to laptop, maybe causing so-so connection?

No, everything seems fine fine with the power cable. everything is plugged in nicely. even if it wasn't, i think it's with my battery since the error says it's something wrong with my battery and my laptop can stay on when unlugged from outlet.

Test what?

 My internet blew away my earlier comment, so I sent "test," and it worked, so I quickly re-wrote the original comment/question set.

Are you seeing the error when you turn on/restart your laptop?

My HP laptop, when turned on/restarted, currently gives me a battery alert which says

"HP Battery Alert

The system has detected the storage capacity of the battery stated below to be very low. For optimal performance this battery may need to be replaced

Primary (Internal) Battery (601)".

If you get the same or similar then it is your battery and you need to replace it if you do not want to be tied to the power cord.

For me it isn't a big deal since I generally have always used the power cord. I will eventually buy a new battery but it is not a priority for me right now.

The "Consider Replacing Your Battery" with the X through my battery icon error only happens occasionally, and when it does, it usually lasts a day to a few hours and i can still use my computer as normal.
