My battery lasts for less than 5 minutes - any suggestions? It is not a part of the recall program and I understand there may be different ideas to get it to restore a partial charge before I incur the cost of a new one...

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. 2.
Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage
of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to
the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop. 3. The DC jack might be loose or broken. It might need to be either re-soldered or replaced. 4. If you
have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try
swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work. 5. The power button could be bad. 6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
