Can the ideapads 100s without battery

The battery began to swell.

I removed the battery thinking I could continue to use the laptop plugged in but it won't start up.

Is this laptop capable of running just on AC?

thanks in advance!

Re: Can the ideapads 100s without battery

Same problem here. The battery swelled up so much that the keyboard was almost unusable. After removing the battery for safety sake until new one arrives, found out the laptop will not run WITHOUT BATTERY & on AC power!! Tried the old reset (holding power button 30 sec while unplugged) several times & still nothing. Any ideas?

I went ahead and ordered a new one off of EBAY.

Apparently is has to have the battery to run.

 

cheers!
