Re: can i use only the plug without battery
Hi there Laptops work fine on AC power only and won't bother it at all, just make sure you do have charge in the battery and that you don't leave it turned on while you go out or to bed as a power surge could knock it out altogether

Hi! Well for this one let me ask you first . Is the battery is beyond 1year? If it is then consider replacing your battery is the answer of that. But if not you can call your manufacturer as all the battery has it 1 year limited warranty. Just to let you know all the battery is consumable, sometimes it depends on how you use it .Hope this will help you. God Bless.
If the battery is dead, you will need to replace the battery if you plan on going portable. Yes you can use your laptop with the power adapter without the battery installed or on. You need to treat this as it was a home computer with a power cord, and becareful not unplugging it until system has fully shut down to avoid surge, short circuit.
You have to check your battery meter. Then try to remove the battery and plug-in your laptop directly to adapter without the battery. Just to make sure if its going to start up when you power up your system using your adapter.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
if you can use your notebook without the battery with the power cord attached, then the battery ist defective. If your notebook doesn't power on at all without battery, then the power cord is faulty.
It sounds more like the large portability battery has been 'messed' i recommend getting a new power cord. Whist you may have repaired the cabling and it may have appeared to work, the escape circuit for charge may have been broken but it is not required for the laptop to work, but is important when recharging the battery. I recommend getting a new adapter and then if that doesn't work a new large battery also.
Laptops can run without battery with the AC, and it's fine, does not harm.
But however, I do not recommend you removing the battery and using the notebook with AC adapter only. The notebook is designed to be portable and with battery plugged in. In addition, using AC adapter only may cause the system to overheat since it is getting and using direct power from the power outlet.
Sometimes when you take out the battery your laptop doesn't work. But that issue usually is related with some problem with the connectors of your motherboard.

Hi Sony battery,
did you mean to say that you battery only remain at 50% and never exceed this amont ??
Normally all the notebook if you keep charging it should come up to 100%, but only a few case that will face the problem
1.problem with battery itself.
2.problem with ac adapter (I face very much problem here not continues power suplly)
3.problem with motherboard the module that deal with charging battery.
Power down your laptop. Remove the battery and power for about 2 min. Plug in the power only. Boot up your XP. Right click on My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. Click on View>Show hidden devices.
If it lists a battery catagory, click on the + , right click on your battery, and select Uninstall.
If it doesn't show, don't worry. Now plug in your battery, without powering down. That should cause XP to redetect your battery. Reboot and your Battery icon and powersaving settings should all be ok.
