Why does my laptop only work when plugged in?

Hi,

i have a Lenovo ideapad 320S laptop which only works when the power adaptor is plugged in. When I remove the plug, the laptop will remain on for about another 5 minutes before shutting down quickly (despite the fact it shows 100% battery). I recently took it to currys pc world in which they claimed to have fixed it yet when I took it home the problem arose again (I’m guessing they plugged the power adapter in straight away to investigate the issue rather than seeing how the laptop worked on battery alone)

wondering if if there’s anything I can do myself or whether the laptop just needs a new battery ?

many thanks

Most of the time, when a full charge only lasts a couple of minutes, it means that the battery is dead and needs to be replaced. With the information given, it sounds like this is the case.

To prevent batteries from dying faster in the future, try not to keep the laptop plugged in after the computer has been charged to 100%.

If your laptop is no longer holding a charge for long periods of time or always needs to be plugged into a power source to work, use this Lenovo IdeaPad U530 Touch Does Not Hold Charge problem page for possible causes and solutions.
