    Hey everyone.
    Im using a Lenovo G505s. My battery is plugged in but not charging. That's what the icon states. I've read other posts about this but none of the solutions in those questions solve my problem. Whenever I unplug the battery cord my laptop dies. Could my battery be dead and how can I confirm this? Thanks in advance.

    If you unplug the battery charger and the laptop literally shuts off immediately, seeing as its not charging as well, you almost certainly have a bad battery. It will likely need replacing. The first sign is issues with it charging. The second would definitely be it shutting off IMMEDIAYELY upon removing the charger.

    No problem. FWIW, I have almost always bought my battery's either from eBay or Amazon, whoever had the best price.
