Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
I've figured out that to use my laptop I have to take out the battery and run it on AC, but if I replace the battery, will the problem be solved? And should I get a factory replacement or is there a better one out there? It seems pointless to have a laptop that I'm stuck plugged in to, but if a new battery will make it better than I will be a happy camper.
Most likely it's just the battery. Laptop batteries have fail safes in them that keep a bad battery from damaging the machine. This sounds as if a fail safe has engaged, and a replacement battery will fix it. Keep in mind that there is the possibility that the problem lies with the power management system on the motherboard. The chances are slim, and you won't know until you replace the old battery. I've used both factory and after market batteries, and have had both good and bad luck with both, so I'm going to say that it doesn't matter, and you can save quite a bit by going with an after market battery. Batteries are funny in that you can get two batteries that are the exact same make and model, and they will have totally different characteristics. One may hold a charge better and longer than the other, and one may last longer than the other before replacement, just like flashlight or any other batteries.

Yes. A new battery will help. Know a replacement costs about $70-100. Any compatible battery will do, and a charged spare will give you between 4-6 hours of total run time.
