The problem is with my battery/adapter. I recently bought a used fujitsu siemens E8010 lifebook laptop. I was told about a problem where I have to keep the adapter in when I use it. If I even slightly dislodge the adapter the laptop cuts out. Is it the battery or the adapter causing this? And, how do I solve the problem? Get a new battery/ adapter or both? Help would be much much appreciated.

New battery. It probably just means that the battery has been used so much that it has a really small charge.

You'd think a new battery should fix it. It's just not holding it's charge and uhh not really doing what a battery's supposed to do.

The battery's worn out. It happens all the time, a new one should sort out the problem. They Do you know how old it is? They usually wear out after a year or two I think. Laptop batteries are labeled as consumer products now, so you can't go and demand a new one from the company unfortunately.

thanks for the help I had slight suspicion it had to be the battery. Have a free e-cookie. I'd put a pic up but I'm on my iPod touch *hands over e-cookie*

either the battery is completely fucked or it is the pwer control circuitry inside the laptop. Does the machine recognise the battery? I think it should say somewhere in the power bit of control panel if it has a battery or not, if it 'sees' your battery then it probably just needs a new battery, if not, it would probably cost more than the machine is worth to repair it.
