My brother has an old laptop that he consistently plugged in when
using. Today it wouldn't power up. I know from reading at a battery
website that laptop batteries can only be charged about a 1000 times.
And that you should charge the battery full and remove power when
My question is, if the battery finally failed as I believe it has,
would the laptop then fail to boot? Or would it still boot, but only
with the power cord plugged in?
