Battery/ Powering on my PC

I think my battery crashed but I'm not %100 sure. Is there any way possible to turn on my PC or to figure out why it wont charge or turn on? Thanx!!

Hello MrsM and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you didn't give any info about your computer I'm guessing you have a laptop. It's OK to run a laptop with the battery installed and using the AC adapter. Are you saying with the battery installed you can't power up the computer with AC power?

It's also OK to remove the battery and use just AC power. Will the computer start with the battery removed? If yes, it's likely you have a bad battery.

Sounds like you might need a new AC adapter. This just happened to me with my Toshiba laptop. Found a replacement online for 15 bucks. So far so good.
