So, i have a thinkpad T60 and my battery is fucked. well i think it is. Yes, i know about the exploding batteries and i checked out my serial # to see if its among the bad batch, and its not. Here's my dilemma Pluged in the battery, no adapter: laptop does not turn on, no battery detected. Plugged in the battery, adapter: laptop turnes on, then finds battery and it runs fine. UNPLUGS adapter: computer turns off, no battery response. I put a different battery in the thinkpad, everything is fine and dandy. Is there something i'm missing? I dont want to drop the extra hundred-something for a new battery. cliffs: my battery doesnt hold a charge, not on the recall list, its not the laptop thats the problem; what to do?
