Hi, For no apparent reason my laptop no longer switches to BATTERY power if you unplug it from a power socket in the wall. I have checked the battery properties and it says that the battery is holding 73% charge but it has been at this percentage for the last 2 weeks. The green light next to battery icon on the keyboard is also no longer lighting up. Just wondering if I need to replace my battery as it may simply have 'conked out' or whether there is something wrong with the settings or the computer itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers and thanks!

More than likely it is the battery. All Notebook batteries have internal circuitry that monitors the battery condition. There is a caveat though. It could very well be the chaging circuit in the notebook. The only way to be sure is by going to a qualified notebook repair center. It is certainly Not settings on the computer. Your best bet is Replace the battery and if that still fails just make sure you purchase it from a source that will accept it back and return your money if the new battery does not do the trick.
