Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Actually, will updating my bios really do anything? The laptop seems to have no charge after it instantly dies. What is even more strange is now it is only happening when i play games. But my laptop is a gaming laptop, so it should be able to handle them. is there maybe something wrong with my mother board that if i push it too far it just loses charge? idk. anyone got any suggestions/advice?

A trip back to the manufacturer would be the best bet, wouldn't trust some fat sweaty guy in the local computer shop checking out capacitores and what not on a pcb if it were me

Hi there
To go back to a standard scientific premise which can be proved to work

"When you have a number of possible outcomes the simplest one is likely to be the correct solution".

I'd suggest you got a duff replacement battery -- either it wasn't EXACTLY the correct model (possibly a copy version of the original manufacturers model) or it was defective.

Sometimes faulty products DO get shipped and possibly for low turnover on these types of items it might have passed its "Shelf Life".

If you've had 3 -- then I agree it's almost unlikely they would all be defective --unless you bought them from the same place which had a bad batch -- then I'd simply "Toss" the laptop.

These days a brand new laptop would probably cost less than 4 or 5 replacement batteries -- may be only as much as 3 !!!!!!.

Did you check your charger? Is your laptop working good on charger and with battery and without battery?

Sometimes chargers go bad and they don't recharge properly. Try to swap the charger.

If someone you know had similar laptop, you can try your batteries on their laptops. Or their charger on your laptop.
