  1. Is it battery or laptop?


    I have an i7 Toshiba s50 laptop. I don't know if my issue is related to the battery or the laptop or windows. This is the 2nd replacement battery that I've had. Laptop wss working fine apart from getting no warning that battery was about to die and laptop would turn off. However today I went to turn the laptop on and it wss dead. Tried 2 chargers and got nothing at all. I unscrewed and removed the battery, plugged in charger and it started up. After laptop started up, a game my little one was playing was still on. So my thoughts are battery is faulty and this is the 2nd time this has happened. Now I have to send the battery back for them to check and test and then send another if it's faulty. What are your thoughts people. TIA Bart
