    If PC D.O.P. is 3-5-2005 and always plugged in and never used on battery only, how do I tell if battery is burned out, and if it is, is it best to remove it if burned out or even if not since never use except on AC power? Gateway 7320 G laptop XP SP3. If I unplug power cord like I just did it says Low Battery Warning-change battery or switch to AC power immediately.

    If you are receiving a low battery warning immediately after unplugging it, it means it's not taking a charge.
    That usually means that the battery is toast.
    It doesn't matter if you leave the battery in, if it's not charging, it's not producing any heat.

    Excuse the typos that I missed. I feel that with all the questionable fires which are blamed on batteries, I do not want to be saving bad ones in my machines. Have 2 other laptops with W-10 and W-7 that have good batteries if I want to move around. Certainly will not hoard Hover boards either.

    I unplugged power cord and it says battery is 3% with 13 min left. How do I remove battery? Just turn PC off, remove cord, open compartment and take out battery then reassemble and plug back in? Since it doesnt go anywhere I have no use for new battery and rarely ever have power outage or need to compute during one.

    This will depend on the make and model of the system and if the battery can be removed. Some are now being constructed with the battery built into the system.

    Things to remember when storing a battery.
    Store half charged.
    Even though they have not been used they still loose their charge. Granted it is very minuscule.

    When a battery is charging they get hot and in turn cause the battery to fail.

    Also rechargeable batteries depending upon the chemical make up have to be discharged completely and then recharged some places have seen it stated 24 hour total others two to four hours after the battery show full charge. They can also be charge so many times before they start to stop holding a proper charge and or fail.
