my computer is having issues with staying on. It's an HP/Compaq tablet, tc4200.
The battery has been getting progressively worse and I always have to keep it plugged in. While plugged in though often it will flash back and forth between the charger and the battery symbol. Sometimes when I play around with the power cord it stays charging.
Now it just starts randomly going into hibernation even when it says its plugged in.
If the battery is kaput will this affect the usage even when plugged in ? That's my assumption, I'm thinking / hoping a new battery will fix it. Right now I can't get it to stay on more than a minute while plugged in.
