Hello,

I am working with a friend on resolving an issue. They have a IBM X20 laptop and if it is not plugged in it will not work. It does not work off the battery.

The specs say that laptop sports a 600MHz Pentium III, a 20GB hard drive, and Windows 2000, so I'd say it had a pretty good run if that battery is just now dying!!

I once had a battery completely die on me when the laptop itself was less than a year old. Something went wrong with the circus inside the battery. Replaced the battery and all was well.

Well, as you can see from the other posts, a rechargeable battery does not last forever. It will eventually die. In addition, a bettery can stop working from too much overcharging too.

I do not know the technical reason. I read it in the battery charging section of an owners' manual. There was no explanation why the battery would deteriorate.
