hi, my laptop uses battery power when plugged into mains- i would have thought it would run off the mains when plugged in. is this normal? it was 100% when started but two hours later its at 25%. its been plugged into mains all this time.

are you sure it is plugged in and switched on and do you see the charger light on the lap top?

mine shows a charger light when it is using mains power and plug in socket and switched on

It may be lying to you.

try removing the battery,see if the laptop still runs on mains cable,posibly faulty charger/mains lead

hi, the battery can run for over 2hrs when it isnt plugged in to the mains. if i plug it in without the battery connected it runs fine.
