IBM R40 problems

Hello,

Need help with my IBM R40 laptop. I was using it when suddenly the power went off. I took out the battery and use the power outlet charger instead but after awhile it turns off again.
What does it mean? Do I need to replace my charger and battery?

  1. So, does it run on the battery at all, i.e. with or without the charger? I suspect that if it isn't running very long with either, it could be an over heating issue. Have you noticed it getting quite hot of late?

    I use it with batteries if it is fully charge and I also use it with the charger if its already running on low batt.
    Funny you ask because I noticed that it gets quite hot when I use it for long period of time.

    Any tips? BTW Im not using it now because im afraid that it will cause more harm if I use it again.
