    This is a v simple question but my pc is really important so I wanted to make sure I was in a knowledgeable place

    My HP laptop is a few years old and the battery has done That Thing where it no longer charges and now it can only be used when plugged in (if unplugged it will shut off immediately). The battery however shows a set charge % on screen that is very slowly decreasing (over several weeks now). When this charge runs out, will my computer cease to turn on altogether? Or do you think it will still work when plugged in? (or can it not be predicted)

    Your laptop should still work even if you remove the battery so I would try that. If you can't remove the battery easily it should work even if the charge goes down to 0%.
