Are you sure you want a laptop? And using a laptop with a dead battery can strain the power supply in the laptop to the point it fails.
I'm unsure if laptops with batteries are a good idea for you.
I have an HP Pavilion dv6 laptop. I have already had numerous problems with this computer and my last laptop, and I know how aggravating it is to deal with HP for any sort of issue. Yesterday, I was moving the laptop about 5 feet with the charger plugged in, when it suddenly shut down due to lack of power. The charger was still plugged in and didn't seem to have been jostled by moving it. The power light on the computer next to the power plug is not lit up. The battery is dead (needs to be replaced), so I haven't been able to check if the laptop will function. I tried switching to an extra power cord I have, and the power light on the computer and the one on the spare charger will both light up for about a second when I first plug it in, but then both will dim quickly. I was hoping this was a problem with the power cord, but it now seems like it might be a problem with the connection in the laptop. Any suggestions? Is this an easy problem to fix? If not, does anyone have any idea how much it would cost at a computer repair shop? I can tell you that my next computer will definitely not be an HP.
