Laptop will not power up from battery only. No indicator lights either.
Powers up normally if I remove battery and plug in AC . Everything functions normally. Battery charges, indicators normal.
Except for power up, laptop works fine on battery.
Is the problem with the battery? About $175 to replace
Is there a problem with circuitry on the motherboard? About $1250 to replace.
I found a very small amount of moisture between battery and laptop contacts before (at least a week before) the problem started.
I have been unable to find a substitute battery to troubleshoot.
Appreciate any suggestions you might have.
