I have a surface 3 and the battery has swollen causing g the screen to bulge if I remove the battery will it work from power supply cable without battery I installed

  • I've seen many people with actual battery faults (0%) still working on a machine exactly as you describe. If the power goes away though, so does your work. Not an answer because I've only seen other posts, not done it myself.

    FWIW If you remove the battery, the screen will still be deformed. Jul 14 '20 at 10:35

I think you can.

I have seen many laptops be used without a battery and they work fine. I have even seen them without screens as well! But as @spikey_richie said, you will probably deform the laptop, and create problems for the laptop in the future. It is not a good idea to leave a laptop designed with a battery to have no battery. It was designed to have it in there.


Surface 3 should not boot without a battery installed.

Since the screen has to be removed for battery replacement, it might actually help if the old battery has made the screen come off from the sides.
