It's possible your battery is in need of replacement. Oversimplifying, but they "wear out" whether they are used or not.

Just a general question.
I have a Dell Laptop and I always have it plugged in instead of using the battery. For a year now, it's been in my living room and I want to use it in the bedroom but wasn't sure if my signal was strong enough as the router is in the living room.
So..I took the laptop on a road trip at the suggestion of one of the great people that reply to our questions on here.
Instead of dismantling everything. I just unplugged the laptop from the power surge and went into the bedroom. I walked away all but 15 minutes to answer the door and when I came back it said the battery was low.
Is it possible for it to get low that quickly? I've never used the battery at all..so shouldn't it be fully charged.
