One of my relatives have a laptop whose battery has gone almost dead. They have not bought the battery but they still want to use the laptop. I just did some research and found that if the battery is 100% charged you can remove the laptops battery safely while the AC supply is there. Now my question is, how can one utilize a dead battery of a laptop? The laptop powers on sometimes for a few minutes. If the battery is removed in this time period, will the laptop be still turned on?
Please do not suggest me to ask them to buy a battery as the laptop is a P4 and I don't think they want to buy a battery for it.
Thanks in advance.
