how old is your laptop? and how do u use it - do u leave it plugged into the wall socket all the time? It's common for batteries to die out after a couple of years. however, if the computer overheats or if you leave it plugged in all the time, it's life cycle will decrease. Charge - discharge cycles. That's how you are suposed to do it.
sometimes a battery will go bad even though it shows 12 volts it hasn't got the cranking amps to fully engage the starter. Try another battery and if you still have the problem you will need to replace or rebuild the starter
Usually the batteries last only a few years before needing replacement. Rechargeable batteries are good for only so many cycles so you've done well to go 8 years. You can replace the batteries if you're handy with a soldering iron - I've done it many times. However, with 8 years on the clock you'll probably want to replace the blades too. The batteries are about $10 for the pair (AA rechargeables with solder tabs) and the blade set is about $30 so you're approaching the cost of a new shaver already. Here's a link - you'll need two.
Lachuaeyes, I have a different model of Olympus and I read that you did not always have this problem and you already have replaced the battery so an old battery is not likely the issue. I suspect you might have something that is draining that was not set in the past. I keep my batteries longer by not using flash most of the time. Is there someone new using the camera that perhaps leaves it on longer than you do after finishing, perhaps uses flash longer? Is there a setting for auto shutdown that has been changed to not turn off as fast as it used to? If none of these I wonder if the flash is requiring more energy than in the past. Could you tell me if the battery is draining even if you don't use it or is it only if you are using it does it drain faster.
Another possibility is that the charger is not charging so well as it used to but I suspect you leave it in long enough and more.
If you have the ability to check the output voltage of the charger with a multimeter you would be sure it is really putting out enough volts to charge fully.
Please let me know if you have further questions. HarryF
