This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge. Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.
Yes it is, seems there is some problem with the power state detection and changing of the load mode. Might by a physical problem, so I am not sure you can fix it. At least check your power plan details and see if there is any error with the ACPI devices in the device manager. In general, if you use the laptop when plugged, you should take out the battery to maximize the battery life (prevents useless load cycles). Also configure Windows to optimize battery usage.
Normally the life time of a laptop battery is 300 cycles. that is 300 discharges and charges. Since your laptop is almost 2 years old, the battery could be at the end of its life time, and again depends on how often you use your laptop in a day. Better goto a service center or get a similar battery from any of your friends just to make sure it is not a motherboard issue. Then you can think about which part you've to replace.

All the laptops I have seen since the 1980's charge the battery, if it is installed, while the laptop is running. They charge at a slower rate if you are using the computer, and faster if you just plug it in and leave the computer powered off. Most have a 'charging' led [green or amber] indicating that the battery is being charged when you plug the laptop in and leave it turned off. If you don't see any indication, check that the battery is connected firmly and that the connectors are not damaged. If possible, try the battery in another machine or a different battery in your machine. tom
Try removing the battery and see if the laptop works with the AC adaptor. If not either the AC adaptor is bad or the motherboard is defective. If your battery LED flashes (yellow or Amber) or is solid Yellow or Amber color, this usually indicates battery is beginning to go bad. Eventually it will not hold a charge and will need to be replaced. As for the error message “failed DST short test 1000-0146”, this is flagging an error on your hard disk drive. This could be caused by a bad hard drive or just needs to be reformatted. Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

How old is the battery? The battery is considered a consumable product. It really has to be replaced usually after a year or so. You may try updating your computer's bios software though to see if it will correct it. Updating this software is a bit risky and if not done correctly may further damage your system's motherboard.

Click this to start the update. It can only be run though if the battery still has 30% charge. If you get an error during the update, you must replace the battery.
