To answer your question "will laptop work if battery is dead, even when its plugged in to an outlet"...the answer is yes. you can even remove your battery and run it off outlet power. As far as your dead laptop...not enough info to diagnose.

Wont turn on

1.Plug the Inspiron's AC power cord into a power outlet and try to power on the laptop again. By far the most common cause of a laptop's not powering on is a dead battery.
2.Plug the AC adapter into a different outlet to check for a "dead" outlet. If you have the cable plugged into a surge protector, plug the cord into a different slot on the surge protector or "bypass" the surge protector by plugging the cable into an electrical outlet. If the Inspiron now powers on, replace the surge protector or have an electrician examine any "dead" outlets in the home.
3.Open the battery bay on the underside of the Inspiron by sliding the battery bay latch release lock upward and the battery bay latch release to the right. Once both latches are released, the battery bay should open.
4.Remove the battery.
5.Purchase a compatible replacement battery for laptop. Be aware that using an incompatible battery can cause damage to your computer. If you have any doubt as to compatibility, the best option is to purchase the replacement battery directly from your laptop's manufacturer.
6.Install the new battery by following the battery-removal procedure in reverse order. Once the new battery is installed, try again to power on the laptop. If there is still no power, seek professional repair advice.

I hope you find it very helpful.

For the past three weeks i recognised that my laptop would cut off without being shut down and takes a while when i try to start it up again even though its plugged in the the power outlet. Can you tell...

I believe that it might be because the laptop is overheating. Just like a car, when something is worked too hard it will shut itself off. Considering that the battery is dead, I suppose that it's over 2-3 years old. Which can be a prime candidate for overheating.

This can be remedied by getting a laptop docking fan. They are inexpensive. Usually about $20-25. This reduces heat, and will give you a better user experience. Including, not shutting off on you.

  1. Remove the battery for 15 seconds, and make sure the contacts are clean and free from dirt, dust, etc.
  2. Reinstall the battery and try to turn the netbook on.
  3. If it still doesn't work, replace the defective battery.

If your laptop has a bad battery, will the computer still be able to turn on when plugged into a power outlet?

If your battery is totally drained or dead, your laptop will not turn on even when plugged in to power outlet. The power from the charger don't have enough power to pass through the battery that is trying to charge. Remove the battery and you will be able to turn on your laptop when plugged in directly to wall outlet.

Hello, I have an averatec lab top. it wont turn on. I do know the battery is smoked because it wont hold a charge when it did work. does the battery come to a point were it wont allow the computer to turn...

try to remove the battery. Then connect the power cord (Adapter) to your laptop and plug it to the wall outlet. Now turn ON your laptop. It should boot well without the battery and you can conclude that the battery caused the problem. You can then replace the battery.

3. Try removing your battery and plugging it in, and verify that your AC adapter is working (somehow, if it has no indicator light)

4. Then unplug it, put the battery back in and see if it will start.

Let us know what happens after you try these.

Laptop wont turn on

Try removing the battery and plug in the power adapter and then power on your laptop. If this doesn't work, put the battery back in and plug in the power adapter and try turning it on. If that doesn't work then take the power cable out and try with only the battery. Try in this order and see if it comes back up, if not, you may have some dead hardware.

Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.

Toshiba Satellite 2410-PS241L laptop does not start.

Plug it into the electrical outlet and then turn on your laptop. if it comes on and works fine, then your battery is just simply dead, and if it will charge, just needs to charge. If not, then you are going to have to replace your battery. But assuming all of this is true, and your laptop will power on when using your electrical outlet, then yes, feel free to use it whenver you like when plugged in.
