It may be worth replacing original RAM in case it is another problem that happened by coincidence.

Just take that battery out and use the power adaptor. Unlikely it's the cause but costs nothing to try

comment What ampère power supply must I use for my laptop charger?
The 3 Amp fuse can supply around a kilowatt of power. If the charger gets anywhere near that you're in trouble. The fuse will protect the cable from a short circuit in the charger. Otherwise it could cause a fire.

comment Copy “true” value from OpenOffice (for pasting in external app)
Are you sure the number is not stored/copied as the full thing? If you format the cell it should affect the displayed number only. Copy and paste the two decimal (displayerd) cell to another cell, then format the new cell to 6 decimal places and you should see it all.
