It's also quite common for the poorly designed power pin/socket to fail. the day in and day out tugging and pulling on the cable does the damage.

Here's a video that talks about the problem and a cure. . .

The batteries in modern day laptops are generally State-of-the-art or close to it.. they last much longer than a while back. now that said they seldom deliver much more than a few hours, with a couple being considered good... Also you are right, anything connected to the PC, like the tablet, will indeed draw more power from the battery and quicken the life of it. for a few tips try these... It is beneficial to put the laptop on charge whenever it is not being transported. Also make sure your Battery Charging/Handling software is set correctly for optimal charging etc. Ensure your laptop uses the screen saver & power down the hard drive when not being used. The MOST important thing is actually when charging the battery the FIRST time, ensure you leave it on for at least the time stated in your manual.. this is VERY important to start with a, Correctly, Fully Charged battery .

Do I need bluetooth when talking to my Dr via Mend app? I have an RCA Google tablet 2 in 1. What is bluetooth anyway?

Bluetooth is a network standard that allows accessory devices to communicate with your computer/tablet/phone. those accessories may be headphones, keyboards, mice, refrigerators, car radios, or even medical monitors. Unless you have an external bluetooth device like a headset, or medical monitor, you shouldn't "need" bluetooth though most tablets have it built in. However, with all things medical, you should ask your doctor.

that sounds like a power problem to the mainbaord. I hope you backed up recently. See if you have any clogged fans with dust or bloated capacitors. You may need a new Power supply and mainboard. I would put the hard drive as a secondary in a new machine.
